Carol Andrews is a Speaker, Author and Executive Coach who believes kindness counts and that changing mindsets changes outcomes.
Carol Andrews began her career as a television news reporter and anchor, but always yearned for her own business through which she could help people, especially women achieve their highest goals both personally and professionally. As a later-in-life parent, Carol also wanted to contribute to what adults and the next generation were reading so she published her first Children's Book in 2002. "The Giggle Wind" and her second book "Speckled Angels" are both books on kindness where she enlisted the help of local artists to tell a compelling story. Being an independent publisher was a learning experience like no other and Carol wanted to share what she learned with others, hence her 3rd book "From Author to Entrepreneur, What I Wish Someone Had Told Me".
She has a strong interest in growing small business, keeping faith when life throws you curve balls and helping others realize their dreams.
"It's as simple and as hard as being open to new, change-worthy ways of thinking." Andrews developed her own EQR process that allows clients and audiences to embrace, question and retool any situation for positive outcome.
So whether she was behind an anchor desk (WALB-TV, WSAV-TV, WGHP-TV, WFMY TV), Coaching Authors from Manuscript to Marketplace, Facilitating Customer Service, Mindset, Inspirational, Small Business or Media Workshops, or Coaching individuals to new levels of success, Carol lives by a personal code of being personal, mindful and intentional. The result: audiences that laugh, cry and make positive change that last beyond the presentation. That is good news for the person and better news for your company's bottom line.
Her eclectic background as an Army Brat, University of Michigan Graduate, Law School Dropout, Animal Rescuer, Mom of a College Student, Wife of a Retired Air Force Veteran, Model/Actor/Journalist with a strong faith in God and humanity means your audience is in for an eye-opening and memorable experience. (Note:Carol's rescue of their family pet, Dora, led her to contribute to the award winning Chicken Soup for the Soul series of books. Dora's story is in My Very Good, Very Bad Dog.)
Carol is a member of the Rotary Club of High Point, NC and spent six years on the School Advisory Board for Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School in Kernersville, NC. The last two years she served as board president.
She says she is happiest when she is helping others grow both personally and professionally.
"I think what I do is take people to where common sense meets attainable and profitable success goals, no matter the organization. The key for me is being Grateful, Respectful, Kind and Willing to Laugh!"
