Linda consistently demonstrates a passion for helping others succeed. She is willing to share her sales skills, techniques and tactics to help others grow their businesses to help others continue to move ahead. Her favorite business topic is customer service and how it makes or breaks businesses, how we are losing this vital skill and how to recapture it. She often tells women business owners that there is no such thing as a “Glass Ceiling,” and that the business world is full of infinite opportunities to succeed with the right combination of sales skills, tenacity and commitment to customer service.
As a passion, Linda genetically breeds, raises and competes in the Bucking Bull futurity and Professional Bull Riding events. Her prize bull Ringo Kid is the current Futurity World Champion of the Million Dollar Bucking Bull Games.
