1. What are three words that best describe your personal brand?

Generous, Liberator, Ambassador

2. Tell us why you’re awesome in two sentences or less?

I got married at eighteen and recently celebrated my 31 year anniversary. I earned a C- in speech communications in college and wrote three industry-defining books on the topic.

3. What are your two biggest indulgences

1) French Toast on Saturday mornings

2) Sleep-in-sex on Sundays

4. What is your biggest pet peeve?

Ladies over 35 that think they look hot in shorts.

5. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be and why?

Jesus, because he was such an advocate for female equality.

6. Why is having a powerful personal brand important to you?

If you get enough momentum around your personal brand, it starts to work on your behalf and it takes less energy to promote your company.

7. What is your #1 marketing tip for fellow female entrepreneurs?

Quit worrying about what ‘she’ is doing or ‘they’ are doing. Do what YOU do, but better! Be YOU, attract YOUR perfect client to YOU and don’t worry about THEM.

Yes, be smart…but also let your human side show authentically in all your communications.
