Show Notes

Mary Shores started her first company at age 24 – a collection agency she built into a $40 million company.

Along the way, she overcame many challenges: abandonment, teenage motherhood, a crippling divorce, caring for an autistic child and more.

It was a discipline gratitude practice that enabled her personal and business growth, and she shares her story and how she came to understand how the words we speak have a profound outcome over the outcomes we manifest.

When Mary changed her story about herself, and the words she used, her company, Midstate Collection Solutions, also changed – uniquely, it is the only collection agency focused on positive communication, integrity and accountability.

Recognized as a leader of innovative thought, Mary has spent the past decade teaching businesses and individuals how to identify their goals, create new positive ways of thinking, get unstuck and build the lives they truly want.
