A natural-born leader with aspirations of achieving the American Dream, Sue Thoens, like many others, entered corporate America. After years of feeling unfulfilled by various roles, she took the leap from corporate worker-bee to entrepreneur, establishing two core businesses: SMT Enterprises and 3 Ladies Agra. “Our country used to have the core values of integrity, honesty and respect. People had the opportunity to pursue and live out their dreams without fear of failure and oppression — it’s my dream to bring back those feelings of pride,” Ms. Thoens says. To do so, she has aligned with a collaborative group of men and women entrepreneurs dedicated to helping others create a business asset designed to impact generations. Together, their strong core has accomplished and will continue to accomplish great things.
