I am a nationally recognized public speaker and business coach who will get your company and your life unstuck. My work — whether one-on-one, in group workshops, or at speaking events — helps you bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be. I work with entrepreneurs at every stage and women who are hungry to create something of their own.
I’ve spent the last fifteen (15) years helping businesses, entrepreneurs, and employees identify what’s getting in their way and breaking down those barriers to success. I provide speaking, coaching, and training services for anyone interested in professional development that brings them closer to being the best version of themselves. Fundamentally, I believe that work doesn’t have to be hard, and everyone deserves to love what they do!
My years of personal and professional experience mean I’m uniquely positioned to empathize with everyone from seasoned business owners to brand new employees. After obtaining my degree in human and organizational development from Vanderbilt, I went to law school and then spent ten years practicing labor and employment law, working with companies of all sizes — from businesses with only a few employees to employers such as FedEx and Michelin. I then left my legal practice and became an entrepreneur, starting my own business in sales. By applying my expertise in developing processes and systems along with my understanding of the psychology of human development, I quickly became a top producer in my field. But it was in that role where I discovered my true passion was sharing the steps to success with others!
I began coaching other entrepreneurs to start their own businesses, and I’ve since trained more than three hundred (300) women around the world on sales strategies and how to effectively build their own business. I’ve led workshops, weekend sales retreats, breakout sessions, and more on topics such as time management, business development, leadership, and the fundamentals of sales. I’ve been recognized as one of the “Best and Brightest 35 and Under” by Greenville Magazine; received the “Young Professional of the Year” award from the Greenville Chamber of Commerce; and was awarded the Jumpstart Award from my previous company for helping the highest number of people to successfully launch their business during the fiscal year.
No matter your current role or career stage, I can relate! Either because I’ve been there myself or helped someone who has. I know that change is always possible because I’ve been through it myself. Let me help you find your path to growth!
My speaking events and interactive workshops transform the lives of entrepreneurial-minded women or those stuck in a corporate role who are hungry to create something of their own. I help these women get started or get unstuck — breaking down the fears that keep them from achieving their greatest potential. Combining the transformative work that you have to do personally with the strategic planning that you need to do professionally, I help female entrepreneurs gain traction on their goals!
In these events, I focus on female entrepreneurship and career development. I speak to women who are standing at a precipice, yearning for something more, willing to take the next step toward growth. The work here often centers on getting past fears, building confidence, understanding initial steps, creating a plan to get started, and finding the right resources.
I speak and facilitate workshops on a range of subjects and am available for individual events as well as multiple-part series. Some topics include:
We will work together to determine the right content and length of seminar for your audience. Book a session with me to explore your needs & other offerings.
When it comes to starting or growing a business, so many of us get stuck or don’t ever get started because we’re so overwhelmed. We know where we want to go, but we just can’t see the path ahead. And when we try to work through issues on our own, we tend to affirm the negative — to find proof that whatever we’re trying to do won’t work out.
Women grow and develop through community. We aren’t the rugged cowboys who go it alone to conquer the world. Left on our own, all we will see are the reasons why we can’t achieve our dreams — because that’s what the world has been telling us all our lives! Awareness doesn’t create change, and we can’t get where we want to go on our own. We need a champion to break down those lies and remind us of our own power.
Change doesn’t happen without support. We need others to encourage us, to hold us accountable, and to remind us that we’re worthy. Knowing you aren’t alone in your journey is one of the best ways to build up the courage to take a leap.
If you feel like you’ve slammed your head into a glass ceiling, if you feel invisible or like you aren’t worthy of your dreams, if you’re stuck in your head and are trying too hard to figure it all out, if you feel like you’re spinning your wheels and can’t get traction on your goals — I’m here to help.
My coaching offers a guiding force to move you forward, combining the transformative work that you have to do personally with the strategic planning that you need to do professionally. I’ll provide you with the support and accountability you need to realize your greatest potential!
If you are standing at a precipice, yearning for something more, willing to take the next step toward growth — then I want to help you take it! We’ll meet one-on-one every other week to make sure you’re maintaining momentum toward your goals, and we’ll schedule laser focus calls as you need them. In our sessions, I’ll help you clarify your vision and keep you accountable for moving toward it. The work we’ll do together often centers on getting past your fears, building your confidence, understanding the initial steps, creating a plan to get started, and finding the right resources.
Nearly 60% of all “Best in Class” companies provide business development training to their employees, while only 29% of “Laggard” companies offer professional development opportunities. Those numbers are no coincidence! Not only does training increase revenue but it also ensures happier employees. A recent Bridge by Infrastructure survey revealed that training is the most important learning opportunity for job satisfaction, ranked higher than even mentorship, sabbaticals, and a tuition reimbursement program!
Drawing from my own vast experience with executive leadership, along with my work coaching hundreds of women to achieve their greatest potential, I can provide your team with the tools and structure your company needs for transformation. My years of personal and professional experience mean I’m uniquely positioned to empathize with everyone from seasoned business owners to brand new employees, so I can quickly identify areas of opportunity and help your team become the best version of themselves!
Fundamentally, my training sessions will help make your business a better place to be — creating a more cohesive and effective work environment. I will be most helpful to companies who understand that professional development is also connected to personal development. Making work better entails an approach to leadership and team building that recognizes the whole person, not just their role at work. The training sessions I offer combine the transformative work that leaders have to do personally with the strategic planning that they need to do professionally.
Specifically, I offer training sessions that focus on organizational and professional development — building the leadership, communication, and presentation skills necessary for a team and company to thrive. I can train your teams on how to acquire new client relationships in an authentic way, and they’ll leave looking forward to being an advocate for new business. Alternately, we can focus on team building: getting everyone on the same page to work effectively and efficiently together. My goal is to create a happier and healthier work environment for everyone — ensuring your team has the skill set they need to thrive.
Every company and every team has a unique set of challenges and goals. My training sessions will be catered to your specific needs, tackling the issues that are most relevant to your business’s success. Some examples include:

Sallie, I am struggling to find the right words to adequately describe how utterly blown away by, and incredibly impressed with you that I am after today’s [Southeast Training] . . .You were so professional, so natural, so knowledgeable and 100% at the top of your game… You rocked that training like the boss that you are and . . . I think this was, quite possibly, the best [training] I have ever been to as a Stylist, in the entire 6.5 years I’ve been doing this. THANK YOU for doing such a fantastic job and for sharing your wisdom and talents with the rest of us. And please know that I’m not saying any of this just to “be nice” or to “be a cheerleader”…I’m saying this because I mean every single word and want you to know that your efforts were not only greatly appreciated but executed FLAWLESSLY! . . . YOU. FLIPPING. ROCK.”
“MIND BLOWING!!! We are SO lucky that Sallie Holder traveled all the way from Charleston to knock our socks off yesterday in Atlanta! You are the best, girl!”
“You were amazing, an AWESOME speaker, and bring so much to our community!!”
“YOU ROCKED YOUR PRESENTATION!!!”
“Signing up for Sallie Holder’s three-part Business Series for the Driven Woman was the best decision I have made for myself in years. As someone who has been dabbling with the idea of starting my own business for nearly a decade, I lacked the courage and know-how to really get myself off the ground. After the very first workshop, I had a better understanding of my purpose and was able to establish, with intention, clear goals for my personal growth and business. The momentum, focus and self-actualization continued throughout the series with the tipping point being my 1:1 coaching session with Sallie. Sallie’s insight, encouragement and ability to break down best practices into relatable and actionable material was invaluable to helping me feel confident to take the leap towards my dream and claim a seat at the table. If you simply need a well-informed nudge to get you going or need a rockstar business coach to help you focus on where you should be spending your time and energy, that’s Sallie Holder!”
“I’m so thankful I signed up for Sallie’s course. While my design businesses were experiencing amazing growth, I was struggling how best to scale them and go to the next level. Through her inspirational course Sallie really helped me uncover the ‘why’ of my businesses and focus on momentum to grow them. I was so energized and impressed that I have now hired Sallie to coach me and I feel like 2019 is going to be my best year ever.”
“Sallie’s seminars are inspiring and applicable to you no matter what stage you’re in with your business. She gives you interesting questions to ask yourself about your vision. It was incredibly motivating to dig deep and then create specific objectives and actual action steps to achieve the goal. She pushed me outside my comfort zone in just the way I needed. Sallie has created a wonderful, positive, encouraging format that worked for me and helped me get unstuck!”
“I love that Sallie’s workshop has something for everyone, whether you are a designer, or a wellness coach like me. She’s down to Earth and helped me tremendously with goal setting! I can’t wait for more sessions and to see what the future holds. Thank you so much Sallie!”
“Hiring Sallie Holder as my executive coach was the best decision I’ve ever made for my business. She really helped me focus and set attainable goals for my design firm. In the first quarter I’ve doubled my revenue while reducing my work week from 50 hours to 30 hours. I’m so excited to see what the rest of the year holds.”
“The one on one coaching sessions with Sallie are eye opening, inspiring, and humbling. Sallie has started me on an incredible journey of transformation both personally and professionally through our one on one sessions. The coaching sessions are challenging and rewarding, and Sallie does a phenomenal job adapting to clients’ individual needs. It is not always easy, in fact, a lot of times it is downright tough, but I have grown immensely in just a few short months. I am so excited to continue my journey with Sallie and I am thankful for her unfaltering support and guidance”
