Reality with just the right mix of humor & actionable tools.
Charlotte's powerful blend of raw reality chased with just the right mix of humor, candor, and practical tools inspires audiences to shift their mindsets to enrich their impact on-the-job and in their lives. Without apology, finger-pointing, or bashing, she challenges and informs listeners to move out of their ruts and into realization - to develop, master, and maintain a mindset of momentum. With Charlotte's straight talk, audiences are inspired to tackle the tough stuff, add more impact with every move they make, and show up at their best.
Charlotte has been instructing people on how to “master a mindset of momentum” all of her professional life. A former Vice President of Investment Strategies and National Spokesperson for American Express, she developed a sales and marketing initiative to help women investors throughout the U.S. This eventually launched her speaking business to prove to others that they too can achieve success.
Like so many people, she did not have a specific career choice in mind when starting out. She simply wanted to attain some level of accomplishment to help her family out of poverty. “I think this helped me to be a scrappy, go-getter type person. Nothing was handed to me, and we went without a lot, so throwing in the towel has never been an option.”
Charlotte is an inspiring speaker – down to earth and accessible – who draws on her challenged background which led to her achievement as a highly accomplished speaker, businesswoman and entrepreneur.
Charlotte's greatest joy is helping others improve their lives by teaching them what she knows. She understands that attaining success in your profession and in your existence requires the knowledge to recognize what is getting in your way, and the fearlessness to transform.
Dealing with work, life and finances can be challenging, but it can also be fun and energizing, and she brings this type of attitude to every presentation.
