Who I am, what I’ve done, and where I’ve been is what creates my passion, my why for what I do.
My passion is empowering others to create more happiness and live more fulfilling lives. I know without a doubt that it is possible and I’m on a mission to not only live my best life, happy and healthy after 50 but to also help others do the same.
This passion was born out of my personal experience as much as it was my professional background. I’ve not only experienced health and weight issues myself, I watched my sister die at 54 and my dad at 58, both far too young. I’ve made a clear decision to not live that way.
Our culture has a long-held belief that it is automatic, with aging comes disease. I’m on a mission to change the conversation and beliefs to health-oriented aging. Healthy aging is much deeper than just looking younger, it encompasses all aspects of our lifestyle. We have the richest opportunity ever to live our best life beyond fifty, both happy and healthy.
In the infancy of podcasting, Edie launched a nationally syndicated online radio show, By For and About Women Radio which grew into a radio network of shows which she produced. They included industry-leading experts as hosts and guests sharing their unique perspectives and knowledge to help women lead more rewarding lives. The By For and About Women network drew listeners from the U.S. and over 43 other countries.
Before launching By For and About Women Radio, Edie was the marketing consultant and co-host for a Weekly Business Radio Show on WBZT in Palm Beach, Florida. It was here that Edie realized her true passion for broadcasting and helping others
Edie’s extensive background in studying self-development began when she was nineteen and it has always been a big part of her life, personally and professionally. It was as a result of many others asking for advice while Edie was doing the radio show, she saw an opportunity to make a bigger impact and began offering coaching services. Edie draws from her extensive business and personal experience to help those she works with to develop more focused, balanced, and fulfilling lives. She has a talent for guiding others to tap their inner courage, find their voice, and act on their vision to accomplish their goals. Whether you want to take a new path in life, end your money issues, or find happiness, Edie has a passion for helping others to stop struggling and start thriving, increasing all levels of personal and business success; she empowers others to leave struggling behind and live fully thriving, live the lives they love, feel true happiness and make money.
Edie began her career in Accounting with a Fortune 500 company before realizing that it was not her true passion. After college and working for GTE for 8 years she summoned her courage, boldly quit, and leaped into a career in sales. She has not looked back for a moment. Since then she has launched several new companies and consulted for large organizations including AC Nielsen, Novartis, Verizon and Accenture along with developing successful sales strategies for hundreds of small entrepreneurs. She has also served as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for Dale Carnegie Courses in Human Relations and Public Speaking.
Edie has spoken before diverse groups both large and small that included members from entrepreneurs to Peoplefluent, PPG, and Cadbury Schweppes. Edie has served on the Advisory Committee for Keiser University and chaired the Women in Business Committee for the Chamber of The Palm Beaches, as well as participated in several women’s organizations including BPW, NAWBO, and eWomen Network. Along the way, Edie has also received awards and recognition for her contributions and accomplishments including Verizon’s Quest for Quality Award, The Jaycees Outstanding State Chapter President Award, and Dale Carnegie’s Prestigious Presenter Award.
A true believer in giving back, Edie volunteers for many community causes including Angels Against Abuse, CASA (Community Action Stops Abuse), RCS (Religious Community Services), Second Chances for Teens and Horses, Salvation Army, Girl Scouts, and The March of Dimes.
