Sallie has spent more than 15 years helping businesses, entrepreneurs, and employees identify what’s getting in their way and breaking down those barriers to success. She provides speaking, coaching, and training services for anyone interested in professional development that brings them closer to be the best version of themselves. Fundamentally, Sallie believes that work doesn’t have to be hard, and everyone deserves to love what they do!
Her years of personal and professional experience make her uniquely positioned to empathize with everyone from seasoned business owners to brand new employees. After obtaining her degree in Human and Organizational Development from Vanderbilt, Sallie earned her law degree and spent ten years practicing labor and employment law, advising companies of all sizes — from businesses with only a few employees to employers such as FedEx and Michelin. Along the journey, she became passionate about the growth of businesses, encouraging her to move beyond her law practice to become an entrepreneur, starting her own business in sales. By applying her expertise in developing processes and systems along with her understanding of the psychology of human development, Sallie quickly became a top producer in her field. But it was in that role where she discovered her true passion was sharing the steps to business success with others!
Sallie began coaching other entrepreneurs to start their own businesses, and she’s since trained and coached more than three hundred (300) women around the world on sales strategies and how to effectively build their own business. She’s led workshops, weekend sales retreats, breakout sessions, and more on topics such as time management, business development, leadership, customer service, and the entire sales process. Sallie has been recognized as one of the “Best and Brightest 35 and Under;” received the “Young Professional of the Year” award from her Chamber of Commerce; and was awarded the Jumpstart Award from her previous company for helping the highest number of people to successfully launch their business during the fiscal year.
