If you're not familiar with Carrie yet, here's more about her and why I wanted her on the show.
Carrie Wilkerson is the voice of experience. From corporate life to teaching high school to direct sales, to information marketing and coaching she has ‘been there and done that’ professionally and personally. An ‘overnight mom’ to 2 toddlers through adoption, her priorities instantly changed and so did her workplace. She’s now built several businesses and coached others to do the same while overcoming extreme debt, losing 110 lbs and having 2 more children, for a total of 4, aging from toddler to teen!
As “The Barefoot Executive,” and President of the Association of Work at Home Women, Carrie and her network of experts have quickly become the definitive resource for helping others achieve extra income and career goals while working from home.
Currently a mentor/coach/advisor to over 100,000 men and women as the Barefoot Executive through videos, podcasts, masterminding, mentoring and live speaking. Not only a business expert, but an expert IN Business, Carrie’s work-at-home methods have inspired thousands and has earned many awards, online and off.
A sought after speaker, Carrie’s humor, real-life examples and tough love translates to every audience, gender, genre and generation.
Her passion is in teaching others to ‘Fill their Stadium’ with fans so that marketing is easy and business is abundant!
Translation: She's pretty awesome. 🙂

Great interview Nicole!
My number #1 takeaway from it, “Focus on one thing to ridiculous profit before starting something else.”
I always learn something new when I listen to Carrie and you better believe I’ll begin paying attention to my LinkedIn account now.
Thanks to both of you for the resources.

I *LOVE* that quote. That was one of the highlights for me, too. 🙂

Thanks so much for providing this interview. She’s doing what I have always dreamed of doing – helping other Moms earn money from home.
NicoleJune 16, 2010 at 4:11 pm
Yes, she’s pretty awesome. I agree!

Thank you for sharing Carrie’s interview, Nicole! I love to hear about successful female internet marketers, who also appear quite normal. 😀
When I started familiarizing myself with im over a year ago, I followed mmo blogs that made me feel like internet marketing is something slightly dirty and involves filling internet with worthless crap content. Ugh!
I could not really imagine myself doing that, even for money.
NicoleJune 25, 2010 at 12:18 pm
I agree. There’s no amount of money that is worth selling your integrity. And, there’s no amount of money you can pay to buy it back once it’s gone.
Stick around here and you’ll connect with lots of positive people who are making money and making the ‘net a better place. 🙂

Once again Nicole you rock my world. These podcasts are so inspirational. It’s so nice to know that there are people out there looking for others that help and share their skills.
Carrie, how wonderful you help others with your expertise. Keep up the good work. I’ll be purchasing a flip camera because of you:) Thanks for helping me spend my money.
NicoleJune 25, 2010 at 12:18 pm
Glad you liked it. She’s pretty awesome!

Now wow gals! How did I not figure it out that I need to commitment to my online work like I have in my marriage…it’s one happenin’ thing after 27+ btw 😉 Off to work the three M’s! Delicious interview Nicole and Carrie.
NicoleJune 25, 2010 at 12:20 pm
I love that you had that “a-ha” moment.
You obviously understand commitment. It’s just time to fully commit to your business like you have to hubby.
Thanks for commenting!

Well … I’m just now finding your site and these amazing podcast interviews. Thank you!
Carrie talked about making a decision, committing to it, then prioritizing to make it happen. How simple, yet how profound! Just what I needed to hear as the new year begins! And, I too, loved her emphasis on FOCUS.
I’m blogging now about your podcast and Carrie’s advice and sending my readers your way.
Keep those podcasts coming and thanks for really helpful info. 😉
