"In 2007, after years of working in corporate as an employee, I chose to become an independent (Indie) consultant and work remotely. With that decision came an exciting journey complete with obstacles, restrictions, excitement, opportunities and learning, (lots of learning). I discovered the definition of work was changing and requires a different set of skills and because I have such a love of learning, I set out to discover, develop, and share what it takes to make it as an independent and remote professional.
One thing stood out: the need to invest -substantially and consistently – in growing ourselves in order to succeed.
With more than 25 years of business experience in executing a multitude of functions across diverse industries, you could say I’ve studied at the school of life. From financial analysis in corporate budgeting and planning, to project and portfolio management to corporate-wide change implementation and helping grow a solo-business into a small business, my corporate and indie life has provided me with the rich experience of walking a mile in a number of different people’s shoes. Of course, my formal education was invaluable and it’s the combination of knowledge and experience that creates real wisdom.
Psychology and human behavior has always interested me for personal reasons and folding that into the mix provided the missing element. I studied at The University of Pennsylvania in Organizational Dynamics, International Coach Academy for my Coach Training, and continued to earn the Professional Certified Coach credential through the International Coach Federation.
Linda has written 5 books each designed to help you dive deeper into a skill needed to get your brilliance out of your head and into the world.
