Green was joined on the panel by Jane Soloman, president of Barlovento, LLC, a construction company she founded in 1996.

Soloman, who splits her time between Seagrove and Dothan , said her growth is based on her past performance, as her business is performance driven.

"If you don't have happy customers, you don't get good ratings," she said.

Soloman stays at the top of her game by being 100-percent committed and hiring people who are smarter than she is and treating them well.

"Then, they will treat you well," she said.

She strives to motivate employees to give their best by making sure they have a stake in the business through monetary incentives.

"Believe in yourself," she said. "Be tough and believe you're right and others will believe in you."
