Kiley Doll was born to be an entrepreneur - it’s in her bones. This tenacious businesswoman and graduate of the School of Hard Knocks has a real zest for life, drive for business, and a deep-seated love of knowledge sharing and public speaking.
Passionate about the empowerment of struggling entrepreneurs, Kiley uses every challenge she has encountered during her career to mentor budding business owners. In her own words, she claims to be the “world’s worst employee” and is anything but A-typical. This is one lady who proudly broke the mold and continues to lead other working women by example. Her enthusiasm for progress has led to the pursuit of a prosperous career consulting and working with household brands like Amazon, EO, and Berkshire Hathaway.
With more than 35 years of experience in sales and business development, there isn’t a person Kiley can’t mentor “if they are prepared to do the work”. Her professional pursuits have led her all over North America, Europe, and Africa.
Her style of speaking will energize the room and leave every “butt in seat” wanting more. Her audience will be equipped with a concrete plan of action, goals to reach for, and a roadmap on how to achieve success.
