Leisa is a leader within her professional association, the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), an organization for fee-only, hourly financial planners. I was honored when she asked me to serve on a panel with her at this conference about the benefits of working with a business coach (thank you, Leisa!).

But I've never heard anyone quite like Mikki. As part of her introduction, she came from the back of the room accompanied by the song &quot;Mickey,&quot; a catchy, upbeat song from the 80s by Toni Basil.&nbsp; And Mikki did, indeed, &quot;blow my mind.&quot; She hails from the Bronx and embraces her New York personae--big hair, big jewelry and, you learn from her speaking, a very big heart. She's leveraged her brand (sample presentation: &quot;Speak Loudly and Carry a Big Shtick"!!&quot;) into a successful international speaking business.

Day Two was a full day of &quot;Learning Lab&quot; where we gave talks and were videotaped then gently critiqued by fellow aspiring speakers. My classmates included corporate sales and marketing professionals and other entrepreneurs. As painful as it was to watch ourselves on video, we learned so much.
