Women on the Move with a Mission:

Secrets You Need for the Success You Want

Women with an entrepreneurial spirit cannot be all dressed up with no place to go and no one to go with! We need to know our path, direction, destination, motivation and best traveling companions and "clothes" (marketing, promotion & web presence) for the occasion...as well as clear guidance on avoiding risky obstacles, winding detours and tempting parking places.

We cannot afford to mistake activity for progress because time is a non- renewable resource.

In this keynote, Dr. Rhoberta Shaler, gives you the valuable insights and strategies you may never have considered that are essential to creating entrepreneurial success. She'll inspire you to integrate and align who you are with your values, beliefs, purpose and vision to create the life and livelihood that is the success you want.


  • how to have a mindset that is in line with the results your want
  • why what you think is important may be only secondary to what IS important
  • three things you MUST do if you want to achieve your goals and create the lifestyle you want
  • how to set up your week for success


Watch out!  You'll be so fired up you'll be making

notes, taking names and ready to run out and

get right on it! 

"Who will I call first??!!!"

Call Dr. Shaler to learn how this can be customized

for your audience and the results you wish to create.

SHIFTING From Employee to Entrepreneur:

Key Attitudinal Shifts You Must Make to Suceed

The mindset of an employee is very different from the mindset of an entrepreneur.

  • The phone is not ringing unless you have been making calls and leavingmessages. No one HAS to call you back.
  • There is no paycheck coming unless you create it.
  • There are no paid coffee breaks
  • , no free doughnuts
  • no one paying for the lights to stay on

It's YOU!  That is a mindset shift of monumental proportions and, the best way to make it, is to have the essential differences clearly illuminated for you.  This seminar will lead you through the considerations you need to engage with to create the entrepreneurial mindset you must have to create the results you want.

STRIDING From Employee to Entrepreneur:

Strategic Decisions You Must Make to Create a Profitable Business

You have a great idea. You have skills, experience and expertise. You may have products. You are enthusiastic, excited, and engaged. You may be working long hours, or, not enough hours. You want to succeed. That is a given. Without the systematic consideration of the strategic decision outlined in this seminar, you can feel like a plate-spinner in a Chinese circus: you are running as fast as you can and all that's happening is spinning in circles.  You are mistaking activity for progress. Women entrepreneurs have more tendency to do this than men, and you'll learn why this is so and how to turn that around. This seminar is critical to your success as an entrepreneurial women. .

SUCCEEDING From Employee to Entrepreneur:

What You MUST Do Every Day to Stay Focused, On Track and On Purpose to Succeed

The integration of your mindset, your strategic decisions, your plan and your purpose must translate  into what you do every single day. Without that alignment, you may be doomed to spin, sputter and spend. Alignment is nothing until it is demonstrated in every day life, whether we are talking about your life or your livelihood. Knowing how to systematically implement these daily strategies, those essential to everyone and those customized for you, AND doing it is the key difference between talking the talk and walking the walk.  You will leave this seminar with your keys you need, and the knowledge that they will work to open doors to success.
