About Kelli – the chick behind the Moxie Movement

IMG_2977Hey there, Gorgeous!

Wondering how {and why} I became a Success Catalyst for the business lives of women just like you?

My career has kinda been a roller-coaster ride, probably a lot like yours.

Today I coach people just like you, bright women, emerging leaders in their career, on exactly how to break through their own limiting beliefs, negotiate for what they deserve, and ask for what they want to create the career they love and the life they deserve.

And I arrived where I am today by walking in your pumps – or power shoe of choice!

I worked in financial services for over 20 years and as a business consultant for more than five. Actually, I was hired into the financial services industry at my high school graduation (inner gasp at how quickly time flies by). I started work the very next day, and that began my professional schooling.

And, trust me, I got schooled!

As a young, enthusiastic female starting out in the male-dominated, financial services industry the challenges I faced were daunting! I often found myself as one of just a few women in a meeting of all men. Or being the youngest person in a room of primarily men.

I had to fight to get my message heard.

I was discounted or dismissed by people twice my age. On my first day of work I felt I could conquer the world but as time went on I kinda began believing the unspoken messages I was receiving – that I couldn’t possibly have something important to say.

Does any of this sound familiar?

Over the years, I had to conquer my little part of the world over and over and over.

It sucked at the time, but all of these situations were gifts to me. They forced me to find a way to be noticed, to be heard, to OWN My Room – whatever room I found myself in – and this is what differentiated me from 99% of those around me.

As I started OWNing my rooms and skyrocketing my career success, people noticed – especially my women colleagues who were struggling to move ahead. They started taking me to the side and saying “Kelli, how did you get another promotion in less than a year and I haven’t gotten one in several years?”

What am I doing wrong? Can you help me?

I’d give them two or three things to do right away and told them to keep me posted. Virtually every time, in a short amount of time, they were telling me about the advances they were making or the raise they got!

I started sharing my OWN Your Room practices with my colleagues, family, and friends, and when they followed them, they began radiating confidence and power! They started asking for what they wanted and getting it – including earning more money! (Get my best tips over at Bring It B-School!)

As I continued to earn more and advance as a business consultant to executives running billion dollar, Fortune 500 companies, I realized that I was happiest when I was helping other women do what I had done – create success that exceeded their wildest imaginations! Not just in work but in life.

AND based on the twists and turns I took, I was shortening their learning curve – so they were getting there fast!

That’s when I took a ginormous LEAP of faith! I left my corporate, high-paying, full benefits, consulting job and (GULP) launched my business, Kelli Gilpin International.

So, yes, this site will give you career and life advice, but it’s bigger than that.

I’m starting a movement!
