HEY, I’M TERRI-ANN RICHARDS
I help entrepreneurs and leaders realize their full potential by developing the person behind the title. Leadership transformation and true life success begins on the inside first.
I am a 16+ year serial entrepreneur, starting in business at just 18 years old. I’ve built six-figure businesses, bought, sold, and partnered in over 8 companies, all while raising two beautiful children. I’ve both succeeded wildly and failed miserably in both business and in life.
Leading teams, growing businesses, and falling flat on my face, has taught me what works and what doesn’t. I’ve learned that there is no such thing as work-life balance, nor is there success without personal development. What we do have is ONE BIG life and it’s our responsibility as leaders to develop OURSELVES into the best darn version of US we can.
I’ve learned how true life success and fulfillment is an inside-out process, and in no way is achieved through external forces.
I’m a Graduate of the Wallace McCain Institute’s, Entrepreneurial Leaders Program, Certified by MHS as a EQi-2.0 Emotional Intelligence Assesor and Facilitator, Certified by the William Glasser Institute in both Choice Theory and Reality Therapy, a Certified Personality Dimensions Trainer and Facilitator, and a Certified Coach. My superpower is cutting through fluff, finding tactics and hacks in developing the full human, maximizing potential, and showing leaders how to leaverage their unique superpowers.

If you are an impact driven entrepreneur wanting to make a difference in this big beautiful world, my one on one coaching is where it’s at. They get the most exclusive time with me, and for that reason, I only take on a few at a time. If you want to receive the most support and accountability from me to finally grow a business without having to sacrifice the life you love, this is the best way to get there.
In business there’s a saying that “an organization only grows to the height of it’s leaders lid.” Meaning, that the ability for a company to succeed at increasing levels is directly affected by the personal effectiveness of it’s leaders. In the face of consistent change, growing competition, and an increased desire to retain employees, organizations need leaders who can quickly build alignment, communicate effectively, and continuously grow the capacity of their people. As someone who has seen first hand the negative consequences of inadequate leadership, I’ve recognized the high need for leadership development programs that bridge the gap between potential and performance. If you lead a team of one to many, this is the best way to bust through your personal glass lid!

“I highly commend Terri-Ann as a speaker and facilitator in the area of communications. Terri-Ann has prepared well for the task, showing that she has gained an excellent understanding of the topics upon which she was asked to speak. Everything she has done is of high quality and professionally presented. She has led two adult groups for me and our satisfaction metrics rate her above 90% in both cases. She has worked from the knowledge that group members have and led them into new ways of thinking. There has been obvious benefit for the group, as many of them have applied the ideas they have discovered to their work. I thoroughly recommend her as a knowledgeable presenter in her field.”
“When looking for a Keynote Speaker for our College Graduation Ceremony, Terri-Ann was the first to come to mind! With her zest for life, her positive approach and her messaging, I knew she would be the perfect person to send words of encouragement to our fellow graduating class. When I asked Terri-Ann to speak, she was instantly excited and humbled to be asked and jumped on the opportunity. Terri-Ann was a huge hit! She quickly gained the attention of over 200 graduates and their families in the audience. She filled the room with laughter and shared valuable life lessons for a successful future. We all have a story, and she has a fun way of telling her own. Her words of powerful, her teachings are true and her consistent love of life shines bright in everything she does. I would highly recommend Terri-Ann for any business event or speaking engagement.”
