Last week I attended Ali Brown’s Shine event in Las Vegas from Nov 5-7.
Ali Brown is a millionaire entrepreneur coach and CEO whose company recently reached the prestigious Inc 500 list of fastest growing private companies. Her story is nothing short of inspiring. I’ve had the pleasure of following her career for the past year or so, but many have known her for 4+ years and have watched her transformation.
