Director-Member Attraction, Carrie Sechel
CarrieSechel.com

Business Consultant, Speaker, and Best-selling Author

I connected my 18 years of professional business knowledge and experiences to my passions to find my real why, got clear on the life I want to live, and aligned my business vision with my life vision. Now I’m driven to help others do the same.

As a consultant, speaker, and author, I help accomplished but unfulfilled professionals break free of everyone else’s definitions of success and use their authentic ambition to build thriving purpose-driven businesses and lives they love.

I have an undergraduate degree in Accounting from Kent State University, a Juris Doctor from The University of Akron School of Law, and a Master Degree in Tax from The University of Akron.

My husband, son and I call Amherst, Ohio our home, but we’re self-proclaimed travel addicts and you can often find us exploring the world, near and far.

Director-Communications, Jill Katzenberg
SendOutCards.com

Jill is a Relationship Marketing Affiliate with the international company SendOutCards for the past nine years. She has always been passionate about acknowledging and appreciating others and saw this as a perfect fit for not only her educating other business professionals about the value of doing business by strengthening their connections with their clients and prospects but for sharing this system as a cost- and time-effective tool to achieve this. Jill has had personal experience with building a highly successful repeat and referral business through consistently connecting with those households she helped. Her initial challenge of creating an ongoing residential real estate sales practice was that she moved to Cleveland out of college for a job, not knowing anyone in the area and had to figure out how to differentiate herself from the 9500 other licensed realtors at the time. A testimony to her success was in 2002 when she took the risk and leaped at the opportunity to be one of the 9 founders who brought Keller Williams Realty to the Cleveland area. Although Jill no longer practices real estate, she has recently joined forces with the national real estate coaching company Sherri Johnson Coaching and Consulting so that she can help realtors throughout the country boost their businesses, which, not surprisingly, includes the value of relationship marketing.

When Jill is not working, she is checking out one of the many cultural events in the Cleveland area… from museum exhibits to theater productions to local art and craft shows as well as the latest Latin dance spots.
