About Ricci:

Using a borrowed laptop and a dial-up internet connection, Ricci taught herself HTML and built her first website for her independent party supply distributorship in 1999. She became an award winning retailer and eventually a corporate trainer for that company, specializing in internet marketing techniques. Through various bootstrap efforts, she grew her personal database to over 10,000 contacts, which included over 3,300 customers.

Soon afterwards, Ricci joined eWomenNetwork, a membership-driven, international professional women’s networking organization. She eventually became a Managing Director and coordinated and marketed regular monthly luncheons (50+ attendees) and smaller breakfast/after-hours events, building her local rolodex from zero to over 4,800+ connections in 18 months, and formed strategic alliances and partnerships within the business community and media.

Over the years she’s strengthened, encouraged, and supported business professionals as a Certified Dream Coach®, purpose-driven marketing advisor and an empowering keynote speaker. As a graduate of Dream University’s “Become an Inspiring Speaker” program, Ricci studied with Marcia Wieder, award-winning speaker Patricia Fripp, and celebrity vocal coach Arthur Joseph. She has spoken and trained at PubCon, Women Impacting the Nation, RISE Conference for Entrepreneurs, Association for Women in Technology and the Direct Selling Women’s Alliance.

Whether hosting, speaking and training at live events or working with clients individually or in groups, her tactile and practical methods, combined with her purpose-driven mission, propels professionals to achieve their dreams and goals. She has been referred to as a pioneer for business marketing through new media and social media technologies, and is the author of multiple proprietary curriculum for her programs, such as WordPress for Businesses & Marketers, Social Media Marketing Success, and Go Google Local – How to Market your Business for Local & Mobile Search, and is a contributing author to “Networking for Novices” (Social Media Nugget).
