Show Notes

Kelly Leonard always dreamed of being an entrepreneur.

But like most women in business she opted to climb the corporate ladder first, moving up the ranks in the Fortune 100 world at GE Capital, Kaiser Permanente and Price Waterhouse Coopers.

Her secret superpower is accounting – but it grew beyond to team building, problem solving, and innovation with GE’s emphasis on “intrapreneurship”.

Now Kelly is an author, keynote speaker, consultant, TV show host and CEO of Taylor-Leonard Corporation, where she helps business leaders leverage LinkedIn to accelerate professional brands and powerfully communicate with their ideal markets.

Through her trademarked B.O.O.S.T.® methodology, Kelly has successfully helped thousands of business leaders increase revenue, build profitable strategic partnerships, connect with new clients, land dream jobs, and more.

  • How to make the leap from corporate to entrepreneurship
  • How to generate more than a half million dollars in revenue through LinkedIn in a 24-months
