WHY EDIE –
Edie has over 12 years of proven successful experience in sales training and coaching. A strong driven leader, her passion is empowering others to surpass their goals.
Edie was the Founder, Producer, and Host of the nationally syndicated online radio show, By For and About Women Radio which grew into a radio network of shows that she also produced. They included industry-leading experts as hosts and guests sharing their experiences, perspectives and knowledge to help others 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 sales and marketing consultant and co-host for a Weekly Business Radio Show, The Entrepreneur Hour on WBZT 1230am in West Palm Beach. It was there that Edie realized her true passion for broadcasting and helping others. At the same time, she realized that local radio had limits and that making the move to online radio 9podcasting) would open up the door to touching lives and making a difference anywhere.
Edie has spoken before diverse groups both large and small that included members from entrepreneurs to Peoplefluent, PPG, and Cadbury Schweppes, BNI and the Business and Professional Women Organization. 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.

In her “past life” Edie worked 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.
