Speaker Profile

In my professional and volunteer work, I’ve planned many events, so I know that the quality of the speaker determines the success of the day. Finding the right speaker for your audience is essential to creating a memorable event and enthusiastic reviews.

My presentations and workshops are infused with stories and examples that inspire, educate and ignite entrepreneurs to create, develop and grow new markets.

My Signature Talks:

     Balancing Bliss and the Bottom Line: You started your business because you were following your bliss, your passion. While you’re following your passion, your bottom-line needs to kick in and support your business and your personal life. In this presentation, I share how using metrics, negotiating for value, and creating a simple monthly financial dashboard will make it easier to balance your bliss and your bottom-line. Your takeaway: the tools you’ll need to grow your bottom-line, your self-sufficiency and your wealth.

     3 Creative Ways to Finance Your Business: The truth is that a business’s biggest source of financing is its customers or clients. In this presentation, I show you how the power of bootstrapping, crowdfunding and starting small are creative and powerful ways to finance your business. When you create a strong ‘designed alliance’ with your ideal client, you will more easily attract outside investors, because strangers like winners. Your takeaway: the tools you’ll need to choose which financing method is right for you, and how to build an alliance with your ideal client.

     Negotiate The Wealthy Way. A Money Native motto is: Poor people negotiate on price, wealthy people negotiate on value. In this presentation, you will learn to combine the power of human emotions and the power of a zone of possible agreement to strengthen your ability to negotiate the best price for the value of your product or service. When you focus on value, your clients are interdependent. It’s the basis of a true WIN-WIN negotiation and it is the basis to increase your cash, invest it and build your wealth. Your takeaway: Strong and relevant negotiating skills create WIN-WIN agreements that build strong client relationships and the foundation for building your personal wealth.
