  • Unlock The Leader Within ~ Discover the 3 Ways We Sabotage Career Advancement

    Rosie Zilinskas, CEO, No Woman Left Behind

    Women contribute to their stalled careers without even knowing it. We start from an uneven playing field from day one. Women earn $0.77 cents for every $1.00 earned by men. Companies promote 87 women for every 100 men. MORE >

    Women unknowingly block advancing their careers by not standing up for themselves, not asking for raises and promotions, and not being confident in their contributions and worth. When women accept unacceptable situations, it has a serious impact on their earning potential, career advancement, leadership opportunities, and overall wellbeing. It doesn't have to be this way.

    Rosie has coached hundreds of women to dream big and build the thriving careers they deserve. Rosie educates, motivates, and inspires women to become the leaders they are meant to be. Her goal is to help women break past invisible barriers, accomplish the previously impossible and create exhilarating wild success.
