“What’s the one quality people as different as Donald Trump, Tyra Banks and the Dalai Lama all share? Leadership presence. Personal charisma. The ability to command attention, without saying a word. They “own the room” wherever they go. But owning the room is not exclusive to business moguls or celebrities. It’s a skill you can learn! It’s amazing what a TINY dash of charisma can do to transform your own success and opportunities…” Kelli Gilpin

About Kelli – the chick behind the Moxie Movement: “I started sharing my OWN Your Room practices with my colleagues, family, and friends, and when they followed them, they began radiating confidence and power! They started asking for what they wanted and getting it – including earning more money!"
"As I continued to earn more and advance as a business consultant to executives running billion dollar, Fortune 500 companies, I realized that I was happiest when I was helping other women do what I had done – create success that exceeded their wildest imaginations! Not just in work but in life.”
