Who is Dianne Kelley?
People know me as the “Bootcamp Girl”. I have created numerous bootcamp-type of programs to help people to get centered and see immediate results. I’m also known as the barefoot business momma, because all of my businesses were launched from my home office, with kids in tow. But the first few years I struggled, because I didn’t have someone to teach me or mentor me on the “how”.
Being an entrepreneur involves always learning, always honing, always advancing yourself. Being an entrepreneur online is much different than running a shop downtown. You have to be able to connect online with the people you are serving, in a personal way, using conventions that are hardly personal! Social media, email, text updates, in-app notifications, it is all noisy and an entrepreneur who wishes to truly serve and be successful, must learn how to be personal with these tools.
As an ambitious woman, I will share that over the past 40 years, I have obtained immensely broad experience in all aspects of business administration, management, and leadership. Also database management, competitive analysis, contract negotiation, human resources management, production management, sourcing goods and services, financial management, marketing management, and more. More recently since 2003, direct experience in online marketing, public speaking, and creating and successfully implementing online courses and materials. I have been a leader in various community organizations, and pioneered online conventions in a rapidly growing educational niche long before Zoom existed.
Besides conducting online conventions for thousands of attendees, those 40 years were paralleled with experience in on-site event management and travel for non-profit organizations, industry organizations, and corporations. Anything from trade shows to educational venues. I've also been a graphic designer (hated that, I'm not artistic), a detail-oriented typesetter, even used shorthand and dictaphone (back in the day).
What does all this experience mean for you? You are getting training from someone who has a love of learning and a love of teaching and interacting with people on all levels of life. There is not anything in business administration that I cannot do, which means there isn't anything that I can't teach you in business administration to help your business succeed.
In the past 18 years, I leveraged my experiences and knowledge to develop brands for 6 different successful online companies that I personally owned. But I learned how to do it all on my own, and it took a long time to learn it. Because of that, you can learn how to avoid the pitfalls and eliminate years of wasted time and thousands of dollars in trying to develop your brand and client base.
Having been both a corridor and a keynote speaker countless times, I can teach you how to create passive, recurring income from speaking - while delivering the same value if not better, than stage speaking. (FAQ - What is a corridor speaker? Someone who speaks in the corridor classrooms of a convention). In addition to my own ventures and experiences, I have helped countless friends and family members start profitable online ventures, and advised business associates in many different niches. Again, this brings a broad range of expertise to you.
The hardest part of expanding my reach was learning how to run the website, since I am not a programmer or developer, and do not enjoy coding. I had to learn (the hard way) how to set up a site where I could actually coach, teach, advise, take appointments, have a private member area, and communicate effectively. You must create a sustainable business plan, which I did over and over and over again until I finally discovered the keys (taught in my Barefoot Vision Academy course), and develop a business strategy and have systems that can be replicated when you need them to.
I am not a blogger, and there were never any click-ads or banner ads on any of my websites, as they were are all self sufficient in passive, recurring income. You can learn how to do this with no previous experience or knowledge. You can get results and I have absolutely proven that you can market any knowledge you have, you just need the right plan, the right tools, and the right training to implement those ideas in your head. And it needs to be affordable for you.
All that said, I am primarily a business coach and mentor here at Barefoot Big Shots. The word "Shots" is plural because it's all about you becoming a Big Shot. Let me walk you step by step how to create and maintain your website yourself (although I can, for a comparable price, set up your site and teach you how to maintain it, but you must do my Vision Academy before I will engage in such a project). As with all of my businesses, my coaching style at Barefoot Big Shots is about teaching you how to leverage what you know to create income, and to effectively leverage what you must know in the least uncomfortable way. Your plan cannot be simply, "I want to make money."
Barefoot Big Shots is about YOU becoming a BIG SHOT!!
