Who am I?
That’s a very good question. For years I’ve had the standard, corporate, stuffy template of a bio and you know, that’s just not who I am. But if you must have an actual bio, you can find that here. You can also download a copy of my one sheet.
If you want to know about me up close and personal (you know, the stuff that made me who I am today), you can find my story here.
I help business owners repair and grow their businesses, and individuals transition from Corporate to Entrepreneurship/Business Ownership. I’m a serial entrepreneur who lives and breathes entrepreneurship. I believe we all have the ability to create our own economy…and thrive.
Yes, I’m THAT author of No, You Can’t Pick My Brain (on Forbes & the book).
I founded Empower Me! Corporation, a Growth Strategies consultancy with brand extensions in media, publishing and professional & entrepreneurial education. I believe if you want it badly enough, anyone can grow in ANY ECONOMY. I provide Strategic Business Growth consulting services to business owners with high growth potential. I assist clients in creating processes and strategies to effectively run, grow and position their business for success. I work with clients to get to the root of the problem, then fix it. I also help business owners leverage their knowledge, skills and brands to get paid more by giving away less for free, allowing them to be more profitable. I help you NOT be a broke brand.
Working with me will position you to get paid more, give away less free and be more profitable.

I host Views From the Top Radio Show, co-host web TV show Real Talk with Real Entrepreneurs, and I’m the creator Empower Me Institute, Empower Me! Magazine, Empower Me! Radio, Empowered for Growth TV & Next Level Business Strategies.
I’m a 20 year recruiting veteran, so to say I know more than a little bit about recruiting is accurate. I worked with companies to create or improve their recruitment process, build recruitment teams and optimize their employment brands. I trained recruiters to optimize their performance and success rates. I have a knack for finding the right people for a start-up environment. I put the human element back in recruiting. My newest entrepreneurial venture is The Red Shoe Agency.
I’m an innovator & not afraid to aim high. And someone dubbed me America’s Accountability Partner™.
I’ve been in publications & blogs, and on TV & radio shows called on for my expertise in entrepreneurship, recruiting, social media, networking, branding, small business & career management including MSNBC, Entrepreneur Magazine, Black Enterprise, Inc Magazine, Time Magazine, Fox Small Business, Financial Times, Essence, Fortune, Forbes, Publisher’s Weekly, and more. I have spoken on a variety of panels & keynotes. Check out my Signature Speaking Topics.
In 2010 my radio show was selected a Top 100 Heavy Hitter Radio Show for Small Business by Small Business Trends. I’ve been quoted in Success Magazine, Fast Company Magazine and the Dylan Ratigan Show. I have written for Forbes.com, Examiner.com and now Business Knowledge Share by American Express.
Proud Founder, CEO, Mom, Entrepreneur!
