You may not know the name of my guest today as an influencer online but she definitely has influence behind the scenes. Dee Reller is my Project Manager – and is really the crux that keeps my business, including this podcast, flowing. Dee is my boss, and I love it!
Dee is a Launch Strategist, Project Manager and Business Coach for Women Entrepreneurs. Prior to starting her own business, Dee spent most of her professional career in as a project manager in information technology where she tapped into her ability to create big picture strategy while honing her attention to detail to successfully lead highly visible projects with budgets over $10M.
While Dee had a successful career, she reached a crossroads her life wanting more fulfillment and believing there had to be something more she was meant to do. 3 /12 years ago, she left her six figure job, became a digital nomad and enrolled in the iPEC training program to become a coach. It was not a smooth transition though. As with many entrepreneurial pursuits, it took her some time to find your footing.
Having always had a unique ability to see the big picture, understand people’s visions and the possibilities in them as well as all the details that it takes to make them a reality, Dee finally found a way to take that unique ability, merge her experience as a project manager with her training as a coach and knowledge of online business to help women successfully launch their brilliance & big ideas online.
As a Launch Strategist and Project Manager for multiple 6 & 7 figure entrepreneurs and influencers, she helps these women create change and impact in the world. The women she works rely on her wisdom and expertise and have referred to her as their “calm in the storm”, their “second brain”, and their “secret weapon”, which coincidentally also happens to be her Fascination Archetype. The launches she has worked on have generated over $1M in combined revenue in the last year and she’s on a mission to help even more women launch their big brilliant ideas and make an impact so that they too may live a fulfilled and liberated life.
