The SEMA Businesswomen’s Network (SBN) has named Missy Boudreaux as this week’s #SheIsSEMA Spotlight member. Boudreaux is an inside sales manager at Oracle Lighting—manufacturers of designer lighting products and technologies for the automotive/12Volt, powersports, motorcycle and marine markets.
Find out what her advice is for staying goal-oriented, and which industry leader inspires her, in her Q&A with SEMA.
SEMA: What is the best advice you have ever received?
Missy Boudreaux: Don’t sweat the small stuff. Focus energy on higher goals instead of what’s right in front of you. Reaching higher than you normally would.
SEMA: What keeps you involved in this industry?
MD: The industry is ever changing and growing. Seeing the innovation of product in our business is really amazing to watch. We always have something new every day.
SEMA: On a Saturday, where can you be found?
MD: Spending time with family and my dogs, going out on the boat and enjoying local New Orleans festivals.
SEMA: How do you prepare for an important meeting?
MD: Prepared with talking points. Either a printed agenda or notes on a notebook, always come with ideas prepared and written down for reference.
SEMA: If you could go to lunch with one industry leader, living or dead, who would it be?
MD: Jessi Combs. After watching her year after year at the SEMA Show banquet and understanding the magnitude of her presence, I would have loved to talk with her about her perseverance in a male-dominated industry.
