One of my greatest joys is sharing what I’ve discovered with others who are motivated to advance their leadership and serve on a board.

Drawing on 25 years of experience as an entrepreneur, corporate executive, Nasdaq company board member, author, and speaker, I’ve seen firsthand that you can achieve your goals and realize positive, lasting change by taking small steps every single day.

If you want to gain greater clarity, lead from your strengths, communicate with greater influence, launch a business venture, and advance to a board of directors position, choose the plan that fits you best!

“Caren’s personal commitment and her willingness to share her been there, done that wisdom, demystifying the process on how to earn a position on a board is invaluable to all who seek her expertise.” Diane Tomb, Executive Director, National Rental Home Council
