“Every woman deserves to live her own life without a permission slip.” – Kelly Fidel

Kelly had a great career and worked in fortune 100 boardrooms but was often seeing people struggling for no reason. It always stuck with her that there was really no reason for that to happen. She later built and sold a few companies and realized that this could really make money and started out on her own.

About 20 years ago is when Kelly really had the idea for No Glass Ceiling. Her mother really pushed her to go for it and start things. Life was happening and one day she reached for her cell phone and collided with a tree at 50 miles per hour. She had to relearn how to walk and talk and live her life.

Kelly later learned, in four months, what was normally an 18 month experience, Kelly became more clear on what was an acceptable compromise and what she would NEVER again sacrifice.

Winning Football Games! – Growing the membership at No Glass Ceiling to help people move the dial in the business. You may not be able to have it all, but you can have what you want.

Kelly has a vision for the next five years of maintaining an Exit Strategy. Allowing her to use her business as a platform to keep things running for the future and providing support for the market.

Don’t worry about being clear on the purpose or strategy. Growth starts with what the outcome target is. Reverse engineer your years so that you know what you can create.

Tools, Podcasts & Books:
Kelly ran seven figure businesses on PayPalAweber and LeadPages.

TED Talks – A Fabulous way to learn, Kelly is a self-proclaimed TED Freak.

The Wisdom of Crowds – James Surowiecki – what’s fascinating is that anything to do with crowd source or funding can be discovered here.

Oprah Though Kelly admits she prefers the ‘old’ Oprah to the ‘new’ Oprah.

Selling to Big Companies – Jill Konrath Well, anything by Jill is a wonder. Jill is the Godmother of selling to corporate clients and big-ticket sales.

Kelly loves any leadership style books. But what bothers her is that a large number of the books are all written by and for men.

Looking Back:
Kelly says, “Go have lunch with Katherine Hepburn while she was still alive, she was a person just like you. It’s okay to be afraid, JUMP. God keeps good records, he has your back and nothing bad is going to happen.
