    "Merry Carole Powers is an extraordinary wordsmith, marketer, visionary, executive coach and author. And yes, she has expertise developed from years of working with global brands. But what I love even more is her ability to reveal that nugget of pure gold that is an individual’s unique brilliance, then help them mine, polish and present it to the world in practical and highly effective ways.

    That’s why I invited Merry Carole to be a guest speaker in my Soul-Aligned Business™ course. Her “You Can’t Sell It If You Don’t Buy It” talk was illuminating. In 60 captivating minutes, she took my students on a journey into a clearer understanding of how to stand out rather than get lost in an overcrowded marketplace stuffed with lookalikes. My students loved it! And I loved how easy she was to work with, including customizing the talk for her audience who were at different stages in business."
