Why You Should Know Connie Ragen Green

I just spent an amazing five days with my dear friend, Connie Green.

Connie flew into the Pensacola Airport near my home on Thursday night.

I picked her up and we headed north (oddly with the speedometer not working) to a mastermind retreat in Northern Alabama held by our mutual friend, David Perdew (of NAMS) and his family including his smart daughter Jenn, at his home.

We brainstormed and strategized for 2 days (Friday and Saturday), focusing some time on each of our businesses so we can all grow even more in the coming months. We also had a really nice hike in the woods on David's beautiful property, got to love on David's 2 dogs and his cat, watched the Alabama vs. LSU game, and ate delicious food cooked by David's beautiful bride, Charlsa.

Here we are before our hike. Left to right, David, Jenn Perdew, me (looking so funny), Connie.

On Sunday, Connie and I left Alabama and headed back to Pensacola, where we spent the night at the Hilton on Pensacola Beach (which was very nice). We relaxed there, and enjoyed some quiet time. Then, Connie spent her last night here at my home. I made her dinner and she slept in my daughter's comfy bed. Yesterday morning she headed home.

Some people come into your life and just make you want to be a better version of yourself. Connie is one of those people to me.

I actually started calling her “Connie Gump” because her life story has so many pieces and parts. Here's how some of her stories started…

  1. When I was selling cars…
  2. The third time I had cancer…
  3. After hurricane Andrew, when my house was destroyed…
  4. When I was in Thailand…
  5. So, after my husband died…
  6. Did I ever tell you I was a gym teacher?
  7. When I visit my family in Finland every summer…

I told her she's lived more in her years than anyone I've ever known.

Well, it got me thinking of how I could possibly give back to Connie enough for all she's done for me. And, I thought “a blog post is a start”.

If you're not familiar with Connie yet, here's her bio.

In 2005 she decided to come online full time, and now teaches hundreds of people from around the world how to create their own business based on their passion and life experiences.

So basically, I want to share my friend with you.

  • Ronnie Nijmeh

    Aww wow! I’m so jealous! You got to hang out with some of my favorite people!!!

    Connie is AWESOME! We had such a blast on a call one time that I didn’t want to end. She made me laugh sooo hard!

    I am proud to call Connie my friend, my associate and my mentor. In many ways, who I am is because of knowing Connie. Certainly any success I have had online can be pointed directly back to her firm but loving guidance.

    Her life story could almost be a “Perils of Pauline” type thing, except that, every adversity she has had, she has turned into an opportunity for growth, something we could all do to aspire to.

    And she’s also fun to hang out with. She once convinced several people I was going to England to meet the Queen. I started getting congratulations emails and didn’t know what to make of them until I found out what was up. And then there was the time…

    Thanks for the post, Nicole. What a great thing this retreat must have been for all of you!


  • Elizabeth Cottrell

    I’m always excited to discover when people I respect and/or admire are connected with other people I respect and/or admire. You, Nicole, and Connie keep popping up on my radar screen as people I want to know better. Thanks for helping us all get to know Connie. I look forward to exploring some of the links you shared.

    Clickbank Pro Search Engine is really a great resource, I had no idea about. It really makes finding products on Clickbank a lot easier. Thanks for that.

  • Kathy Hicks

    Thanks so much for sharing about Connie. I met Connie two years ago when she joined a 6-week exercise/meal plan program of mine. Connie really struggled at first to keep up, but gained momentum in her weight loss and increased fitness level. She is still one of my students, working out 3-5 times a week with our group and now she mentors me in marketing. She is an amazing human and I am so glad you got to spend such a wonderful time with her!!
