Movement Igniter – Live Show Host – Inspirational Keynote Speaker – High Stakes Success Coaching For Women
“I wear my passion on my sleeve and when I have no sleeve I wear my passion on my arm.” – Ann Ulrich
So glad you stopped by… Thank You!
My journey includes a few decades of business and life adventures – an exciting, exhilarating, at times frustrating, ever-winding road – with trip-ups (lessons learned!) and triumphs (celebrate it all!) along the way.
Sound familiar? Has your journey had a few twists and turns, too?
I wouldn’t change a thing.
My Story (so far!) …
From Rookie to Executive in Healthcare (not overnight, over 13 years!) … From Intrapreneur Marketing Healthcare Services To Women (even when a physician threatened to pull his funding if we started marketing prostate screenings to women!) to Entrepreneur and Executive Leadership Consultant … From the Runway to the Boardroom… From Tomboy to Professional Plus-Size Model (didn’t wear makeup till college so you can imagine the eyerolls if I shared that modeling dream, which is exactly why I didn’t share it – I just did it) … to Creating My Award-Winning Garment Fit Model Agency (I’ll never forget the day The New York Times called… you never know who is watching!) … From Speaking Tour in Taiwan to National Leadership & Success Inspirational Keynote Speaker (oh, the stories!) … From Founder to Co-Founder to Fired (ouch!) to Owner… From Award-Winning Business Changemaker to Trusted Advisor Coaching Executives, Inspirational Leadership Keynote Speaker, Success Cards Author & Owning It! at DO ONE BOLD THING™… to a Self-Imposed Executive Sabbatical (highly recommend!)
… and now, the newest BOLD iteration: Professional WingWoman and Owning It! as Founder, DO 1 BOLD THING!™ (It’s A Movement, It’s A Lifestyle, It’s A Club, Join Us!) – Inspirational Keynote Speaker – High Stakes Success Coaching For Women – and Live Show Host!
At this exciting stage of life … I’m just getting started.
Grateful for many who’ve mentored me over the years… clients who took a chance years ago on my then-unproven dreams as I put them out in the world as various business iterations …
… and thankful for early sponsors (mostly men because, let’s face it, there weren’t many women leading back in that day!) who helped open doors I may not have been able to heave open on my own. Grateful!
And that is exactly why I do not believe anyone is ever truly self-made… how can we be when we ALL get where we are on the strong shoulders and generous wings of others.
Proudest accomplishment in my work so far has been having the guts, grit, passion, perseverance and crazy optimism! (amidst serious bouts of self-doubt!) …
… to dream, DO, imagine, ask for help, create, do more, re-do, and deliver the various iterations of my BOLD body of work… even when it didn’t all work out!
My BOLD Body Of Work includes:
THE BOLD! FACTOR, BOLD CONFIDENTIAL, BOLD ON THE GO, POSITIVELY BOLD, LASER BOLD, BEST BOLD U, BE BOLD! and DO ONE BOLD THING!™
