Laura Schoppe, Founder and President of Fuentek

After beginning her career as an aerospace engineer and working in the defense industry, Laura navigated several career transitions before taking the leap to becoming an entrepreneur. “I quit on a Friday… and I lost about ten pounds… My entire career had been working for big companies and climbing that ladder; so that’s what I knew, that’s what I was comfortable with, and that’s what I expected I was going to do the rest of my life…”
Here she shares her story of going from employee to employer, creating one of the first virtual companies, and finding that “different can be good.”
