If you believe that an unlimited life, an unstoppable business, and perpetual happiness are all part of the impossible dream, you haven’t met Dixie Gillaspie. Ever since she was a little girl, Dixie’s least favorite word was can’t. It still is. Dixie is on a mission to prove that anything was possible. Today most people who know her call her Dynamite, a nickname she acquired in the second grade. In her words, she has been a coach, business consultant and analyst, a change agent, and a general trouble-shooter to entrepreneurs and business leaders for more years than she is willing to admit. She is the author of Just Blow it Up, Firepower for Living an Unlimited Life and a companion book, Doses of Dynamite, Firepower for Capturing the Inspiration in Everyday Things, both due out from Sound Wisdom this April. She is a contributing author, along with Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Joe Dispenza, and others, to; The Thought That Changed My Life Forever, available in bookstores now. Dixie considers herself more of a story teller than a speaker, but she’s shared the stage with the likes of Zig Ziglar, Bob Burg, John David Mann, Scott Ginsberg, Mark Sanborn, and Southwest Airlines President Emerita, Coleen Barrett. She’s allergic to the word CAN’T and her Blast Thru Coaching method is a process for challenging, and even eliminating that word from your vocabulary. You can follow Dixie on Facebook and Twitter.

Leadership and Emotional Intelligence expert, Steve Gutzler has consistently received high honors in delivering his presentations to a world-class list of clients. Steve changes lives with his powerful message. He believes that radical changes require us to explore new frontiers, internal frontiers, if we wish to become stars in our own organizations or to empower others in theirs. Individuals are now required to become greater personal leaders than ever before. This new internal frontier has more to do with self-control, self-knowledge, authenticity, and honest communication than any host of technical abilities or any amount of IQ. Steve founded Leadership Quest in 1995 and has continued to grow and develop his inspiring presentation and training programs through the relationships and experiences with his clients. He has published his first E-book; The Two Minute Drill: How to be a great leader under intense pressure and his second E- book; Emotional Intelligence for Personal Leadership, both of which are now available for purchase through Amazon.
