Real Stories from Women CEOs Who Out Smarted The Hustle

Carmen Reed-Gilkison

Co-CEO of Encore Empire

Before joining The CEO Collective, we were doing a lot of really good things in our business, so things were going well, but being business strategists ourselves, we know that we cannot see what’s happening in our business, right? We’re too close to it.

So we wanted to get the guidance from someone who has gone farther than we have. And so we came to Racheal to get that guidance. It’s like, okay, what do we not see? That’s what we wanted. We wanted some objective eyes to look at it and say, what are we missing?

Business does not work without systems. You’ve got to have those. And when you have those, it runs seamlessly and it becomes rinse and repeat. So things are just running so much smoothly. We are doing so much more volume.

We started with Racheal in September of 2022, and November of 2022 was our best launch ever!

So that was a testament to what we’re learning, what we’re implementing, what we’re doing. We had the system, but it takes that objectivity and that professional expert eye on your business to be able to help you get to where you want to be.

I fly in from across the country. So for us, we have realized the value of coming in person. It is a completely different feel, and you get so much out of coming in and seeing all these people who we’ve seen on Zoom for month after month. Then we get to come meet them and talk with them and have dinner with them and laugh with them. And it is so much fun. So I would suggest highly that everyone attend at least one in person retreat.
