My name is Debbie Peterson and I run a company called Getting to Clarity. I work with independent professionals to get them out of their own way, get clarity on what they really want in their business and give them strategies to actually achieve it! On a personal note, I chase sunshine with the two loves of my life, my husband, Tom, and my beagle, Ernie.  www.gettingtoclarity.com


Small businesses are often tasked with growing sales at a time when resources are at their most limited. Rapid revenue growth without a huge budget or large sales team requires strategic alignment of people, pitch, and process. By focusing on just a few critical strategies, business builders can actually do more with less. Even better, they establish a scalable, authentic sales model that is far more enjoyable for everyone involved.

Charlene DeCesare is a sales strategist who helps brilliant leaders of small businesses significantly grow revenue (and actually enjoy the process!) Before starting “Charlene Ignites,” she co-founded EdAssist (now under Bright Horizons, Inc), and had previously launched a multi-million-dollar line of business for Gartner, Inc.  She is a Nationally certified Brain-Based Success Coach and a Professional Member of the National Speakers Association. www.charleneignites.com
