Please allow me to introduce myself…my name is Darlene Willman. For several years, I’ve been asked to personally coach others and share my strategies, concepts and expertise.
In 2002, I launched my first company which offered online marketing tools for local and national businesses. Six months later, I developed a group called the Motivational Roundtable which brought together other business owners to share what worked and what didn’t work to accelerate the learning curve. I brought in expert speakers each month to teach us general and advanced business techniques.
In 2005, I was offered the position of being the Executive Managing Director of an international businesswomen’s organization and was able to grow the membership over 300 percent! In fact, my chapter was in the top ten percent for fastest growing in the nation!
After three and a half years, I resigned from my position, and decided to take on one of the biggest and boldest career moves yet…I established an annual national event called the U.S. Small Business Conference. Talk about going out on a limb!
In 2008, I was honored with an award from the Small Business Administration for “Women in Business Champion of the Year.” I will always be grateful to the people in my community that believed in me enough to recognize me for this award.
In 2009, I participated in writing 100 Articles in 100 Days Challenge. Although this was difficult to do and many times I wanted to give up, I made a commitment, stayed the course and on the hundredth day, submitted my final article to be published. Afterwards, I discovered that 120,000 people from around the world also entered this challenge and only 364 of us actually accomplished it! Since then, I’ve been speaking to a variety of audiences, been featured in five books and have developed a variety of CD’s, seminars, workshops and webinars.
In May 2010, I published the first issue of ACCOMPLISH Magazine. I wanted something truly unique and integrated a radio show inside our publication to give it a more dynamic experience for our subscribers. I’ve had the privilege and honor of interviewing some of the world’s top thought leaders. ACCOMPLISH Magazine currently inspires over 100,000 people worldwide and our radio show has had over 84,000 listeners!
If that’s not enough, I launched the St. Louis Business Club in December 2010 and held over 140 events! To date, I’ve organized well over 400+ events in my career.
In May of 2013, I was honored with the “Women of Legacy” award from Powerful Women International in San Francisco, CA.
It’s been fifteen years now and I’m ready to share my secrets with just a few people that are truly ready and committed to accomplishing more than they ever imagined. Whether you want to learn to effectively market and promote yourself, create a powerful online presence, write a book, get published, host your own events, become a speaker or create your own products, I’ve been there and I’ve done that. I want to teach you exactly how to get started but more importantly, hold you accountable to finish what you’ve started!
