We had the good fortune of connecting with Lisa Tilt and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lisa, is there a life experience you can think of that you feel has had a profound impact on your life or career?
Without a doubt, the biggest impact to my career has been running a small business during a pandemic crisis. Like so many, I went through an enormous range of emotions that seemed to change continually. Managing those emotions while carrying the responsibility of staying strong for my family and my team was physically and mentally exhausting, but I learned so much about myself through this journey and what I can accomplish. More importantly, however, is that I did not do this alone. I’ve never been so resolute about the significance of the “village” we build around us. My village was my lifeline. Every single person. They know who they are and I thank them on these pages. I hope to repay them over and over again while paying it forward to others on a similar journey.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
In 2006 I founded Full Tilt, an Atlanta-based marketing communications firm, as a way to unite three themes that inspire me: working with momentum organizations, mentoring others, and running a “best places to work” company. Our mission is to continually offer the highest level of client service and expertise in order to help companies that are planning for next-stage growth, ready to capitalize on trends, and wanting to leverage business opportunities to gain momentum. It is a privilege to work with the Full Tilt team and they are some of the most creative, energetic, and inspired professionals I have ever worked alongside. We strive to be both big picture driven and roll-up-the-sleeves tactical, strategic and approachable.
Our team is energized by doing great work in full partnership with our clients, providing counsel and custom marketing programs to a roster of clients in a variety of fields including education, HR and staffing, blockchain/fintech, CBD and hemp, real estate, nonprofit, emerging tech, and financial services to name a few.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to give a shoutout to my family because it is their unconditional love, unending support, and continual encouragement that makes me the happy and fulfilled person I am today. My husband, Mike, is my rock and I always feel his hand on back even when he isn’t in the room. He’s also there to lead me when I need it, to offer perspective, celebrate our wins, and calm my doubts. My girls inspire me everyday with their compassion, intelligence, and character. Their never-ending treasury of smiles and hugs always bring me back to the foundation of what really matters. And finally, it all started with my mom, and if I could channel even half of the positive energy she exudes, I would be perfectly content. Her gifts of love, strength and resiliency have been the guideposts that I’ve used to create a beautiful life.
