It started small as a poor farm girl from Texas, who always tried to be successful in what ever I did. Along the way, I received my doctorate degree in Neuroscience, and started to work in the pharmaceutical industry as „The Deal Closer“ helping the sales team to close multimillion Euro contracts with our pharmaceutical clients.
My sales career was hugely successful because I had figured something out that was unique. Something about what inspires people to buy a product or service from me as opposed to buying from my competitor.
I understood what motivated my customers. What they wanted. What they didn´t want. What was keeping them awake at night, and how I could solve their problems.
Then in 2003, the competition hired me and moved me from Austin, Texas to Soligen, Germany. I became their Deal Closer, until 18 months later when I quit my job and decided to start my own company.
Scared but excited to change the world and live my own dream, the company turned into a huge success. In a little over a five year period of time, I expanded my GmbH which was located in Deidesheim Germany to 10 companies in 9 countries around the world. I had 53 amazing employees working in my offices in India, Argentina, Switzerland, Germany, Hong Kong, Chile, Panama, Mexico and the USA.
And, at the time I sold the companies in the fifth business year, the company was valued at 3 million Euros.
Then I started my current business, Business Beyond Borders, to help people in Europe grow amazingly successful businesses. And to deliver inspirational keynotes to audiences around the world, so that they too step out of their comfort zone, and take action toward a truly fulfilling life.
I love being a professional inspirational keynote speaker for more than 13 years, and have spoken to tens of thousands of people around the world. I have shared the big stage with the legendary Brian Tracy, Lothar Seiwert, Les Brown, Nick Vujicic, and many, many others.
So how did I do that as an American woman, living in Germany, who at the time didn´t even speak the language?
It was the combination of the right positioning, the right sales strategy, the right mindset, and many other ingredients that came together from my hard work all at the same time.
