Finding the Business Executive in You

NEW YORK, Jan. 3, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In her new book, Get A Clue, 10 Steps to an Executive IQ, Temeko Richardson shares knowledge gained from unique consulting experiences with readers to help them realize their true business and professional potential.

"There is an executive in each of us," says Richardson who has nearly two decades of experience working for and consulting with Fortune 500 companies. "There are pitfalls along the way and hurdles to overcome, but by following some tried and true business practices, as well as properly navigating our new emerging business climate, aspiring leaders can tap into their full potential. The Executive IQ is not only about knowing facts about all the contributing factors to business success but understanding when to take the initiative for corrective action to improve efficiency".

In her upcoming book, Get A Clue, Richardson relies on her unique journey of entrepreneurship, professional development in corporate settings, and advisory capacity to C-level executives and Senior Managers to share the lessons learned and common missteps to avoid when launching a new business or climbing the corporate ladder. The book provides keen insight to entrepreneurs, new executives, and aspiring leaders on the best practices of building a solid foundation to steer a business and a career to success.

"One of most important lessons for entrepreneurs and aspiring leaders is to create and reevaluate long term goals while encountering short-term success. This is the time to highlight your successes, recognize faults, and devise a plan to strengthen weaknesses for long-term advancement".

"I have also found that one of the biggest hurdles is failure, the fear of failure and dealing with disappointments," added Richardson. "Setbacks are guaranteed but how we recover sets apart the leaders from the followers."

Prior to Richardson's corporate success, she established herself as an overachiever at an early age, graduating from high school at age 16, from Temple University with a double major in Mathematics and Computer Science at age 20 and the University of Pennsylvania with a Master's Degree in Systems Engineering at 22. Having received prestigious Presidential Awards while employed at top software companies and quickly being promoted with a niche of handling the toughest customers, Richardson stepped out over a decade ago to launch one of two successful software and technology strategy companies with international clients. She continues to empower new legacies of entrepreneurs through visionary advising and venture capitalism.

The book Get A Clue will be initially released as an eBook ( on Tuesday, January 1, 2013 and available on and Barnes & Noble sites in late January 2013.
