“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.”

“Sallie Holder is the real deal – her coaching is inspirational and incredibly authentic. I love how she ‘reads’ her audience and customizes her coaching program and tips to meet group/individual goals. When I heard her speak, I knew I was capable of so much more with my business and she helped me make an actionable plan to realize that personal and professional growth! “
“Sallie Holder is an amazing coach. She is empathetic, supportive and a straight shooter. Sallie helped me look at my hidden fears and what was holding me back in my business. Without a doubt, Sallie continues to be a light in my life and I continually learn from her.”
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.
“Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create.”

“No company can afford not to move forward. It may be at the top of the heap today or at the bottom of the heap tomorrow, if it doesn’t.”
– James Cash Penney, Founder, JC Penney
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:
We will work together to determine the right content and length of seminar for your company. Book a session with me to explore how I can help transform your team!
