With more than 10,000 hours teaching timeless universal principles and law, focusing on building confidence through performance and consistent achievement, Leslie is uniquely qualified to articulate complex concepts into bite-sized applicable nuggets, allowing women to find the motivation needed to take action toward their goals and start right away on their big dream.

Her 2014 Amazon best-selling book Champion: 21st Century Women: Guardians of Wealth & Legacy in Women & Business, provides the how-to’s for building confidence and setting goals that are achieved with consistency over time, and how to start your own mastermind group.

Leslie’s three-year high-performance online business mastermind for women is based on her work, The 8 Essentials of Performance and Achievement, developed over twenty years. Her clients enjoy her online program as a rich resource for building their businesses. Her program, YourAccountabilityPartner -dot- Com allows women to work directly with her every week to stay on track toward their goals, no matter what.

Retired after forty-five years in corporate, Leslie calls herself a “Nana-preneur,” living in Cary, NC by a small lake dubbed “Swan Lake” (because it has a swan on it, of course) by her third of four grandchildren, all of whom live just ‘over the river and through the woods’ from her home.

Q & A

Leadership Girl (LG): Tell us about your business.

Leslie Flowers: I facilitated an ongoing, annual high performance women’s business mastermind. I’ve done more than 60 multi-week mastermind studies since 2008. I also provide accountability services at YourAccountability.com as many women want the accountability to keep them on track. I facilitate workshops and seminars, I’m a certified speaker (CS), a certified coach and consultant (LSC), and an inspiring and motivational speaker, having majored in drama at San Francisco State. I serve primarily women entrepreneurs and small business owners, yet my corporate fast track program has yielded wage gap crushing results by women moving up the corporate ladder.

LG: Who do you serve?

Leslie Flowers: Women who are already up at bat swinging. They have achieved a level of success; it’s simply not consistent or predictable. They have confidence and are looking for more. They not only want to succeed, they are willing to do whatever it takes, without violating the rights of others. They are coachable. My clients 1) understand that their results exceed or match their level of investment in their own personal development and growth, and 2) are hungry for continuing to learn the information they know will take them where they want to go.

LG: What is the name of your business?

Leslie Flowers: Leslie Flowers Enterprises, LLC

LG: What is your website’s url?

Leslie Flowers: www.Leslie-Flowers.com

LG: How did you get into your current business? What opportunities or needs did you see?

Leslie FlowersLeslie Flowers: While already an expert in many personal development arenas by 2008, I wanted to work with the best and went into business with Bob Proctor, likely the most savvy thought leader in the area of principles of success and universal law. In 2013, I moved my mastermind studies and trainings to women when I discovered the results of a study by IWPR (Institute of Women’s Policy Research) for North Carolina revealing it would be 2054 before women and men would earn the same fee for the same work. I knew that women were stopped from being successful because they had no clue about what it took to become successful in business. Women must be successful in spaced intervals over time by executing their own directives in growing a business.

LG: What have been your biggest challenges?

Leslie Flowers: Helping women who believe they are my ideal client and who really want to work with me and succeed, yet are not willing to do what it takes based on fear and the resulting lack of confidence.

LG: What has been your greatest reward?

Leslie Flowers: For fourteen quarters, I have trained and watched women set and reach their goals through the power of mastermind. My reward is their successes. Last year I guided twelve women through their money stories to invest $1,000 dollars in an event serving entrepreneurs and small business owners focused on moving their business from great to extraordinary. They didn’t know the results and had faith and confidence in themselves to execute the event. The best part was that I got to write a check to twelve women right after Thanksgiving – the event proceeds. This was the biggest thing they had ever done in their lives.

LG: If you could change something, what would it be?

Leslie Flowers: That people choose to continue learning, as I believe learning is our unique gift as humans and it serves as the ‘miracle grow’ for our minds.

LG: Who are your ideal clients?

Leslie Flowers: Who I serve is the same as my ideal clients: Women who are already up at bat swinging. They have achieved a level of success; it’s simply not consistent or predictable. They have confidence and are looking for more. They not only want to succeed, they are willing to do whatever it takes, without violating the rights of others. They are coachable. My clients 1) understand that their results exceed or match their level of investment in their own personal development and growth, and 2) are hungry for continuing to learn the information they know will take them where they want to go.

LG: Social Media, Yay or Nay?

Leslie Flowers: Yay!

LG: What is unique about your business?

Leslie Flowers: I am a rare woman authority on the timeless principles of success spelled out in the #2 best selling book of all time, Think and Grow Rich, and laws used for 200 generations by men to establish our current context for success. As such, I am uniquely qualified to teach women these principles in bite sized nuggets so they learn and apply the work quickly, leading to the ability to “ask for what they deserve, and be paid.” I have 45 years in corporate and 20 years studying a vast variety of disciplines and a rich resource and membership site to fortify the learning every week.
