Carrie Wilkerson is a force to be reckoned with. The daughter of a career military father who later became a preacher, this Texan is truly a ‘people person’. The picture on the left is from the NAMS event last year where we were both speaking. I’ve been following Carrie for seven years now and was thrilled when she agreed to join me for a podcast interview. Whenever our busy paths cross and I see her in person at an event, she is the first one to call my name and rush over to give me a big hug. I love that about her and know that you will learn a lot about growing your business from this interview.
We discussed how much we have in common, having both been classroom teachers before coming online and both feeling overwhelmed at times when surrounded by too many people at a live event. But Carrie handles her life in a professional way that I aspire to emulate more and more as time goes on.
We talked about many things, including how she became known as The Barefoot Executive. Carrie is the foremost expert in the area of list building, and I recently went through her course not once, but twice on this topic. Building a list is crucial to your success with any business.
Also, be sure to check out Carrie’s bestselling book, The Barefoot Executive: The Ultimate Guide for Being Your Own Boss and Achieving Financial Freedom. I’ve read this book twice and learn something new with every chapter.
What will you learn from Carrie? That depends entirely on you, but once you find out she preserves and ‘puts up’ her own preserves from her garden and local produce co-ops you’ll realize the possibilities are endless.
