    Kim McClure leads a team of women who have collectively   produced more that 15 million dollars in sales. Her income tops seven figures and she's earned trips to more than 25 countries around the world. Born in a small town in Ohio, Kim began her career as a registered nurse because she wanted to make a difference in people's lives.  She never imagined that she'd one day be leading a top producing sales team of more than 1400.  Her mission is to help women reach their true value and empower them to live their dreams and leave a legacy. 

    Beth Caldwell has been gathering groups of females since she was 8 years old. As a child, she'd write manuals for self-improvement from her mom's magazines, host meetings  in the family living room and give motivational talks. Although she began her career in airline services, and moved to social work before becoming an entrepreneur, the common theme in her work has always been to make the world a better place. Today she is a full time professional speaker and writer. Beth is the author of 7 leadership and self help books for women. You can find her columns and articles in many prestigious publications and blogs including THRIVE Global, The Pittsburgh Business Times and Smart Business Magazine. In 2013 she launched Leadership Academy for Women and in 2014 she joined the Steve Harvey Success Institute where she trained and mentored entrepreneurs around the world.  Her mission is to help women succeed in life and business.
