Carrie Perrien Smith MBA is a training, communication, and publishing industry veteran. She ran screaming from her corporate training and communications career over a decade ago. Even though she sometimes misses regular paychecks, a cubicle with office supplies she didn't have to purchase, and normal working hours, she wouldn't trade the entrepreneur's kill-what-you-eat lifestyle (most days, at least). Today, this third-generation entrepreneur runs a professional speaker bureau and a publishing company called that serves clients internationally. She books professional speakers, trainers, and consultants for company meetings and conferences. She also works with business leaders who want to brand themselves as experts in their industry and build a speaking and consulting business. Also a speaker and coach, Carrie is the author of Currency: Striking Networking Gold in a Relationship Economy. She helps people get more clients, bigger paydays, and sweeter success.
She also hosts an internet radio show for business owners called Business: Engaged!, and sings in a 60s and 70s rock band called Paper Jam.
