Founder of eSuite
Laurie eats, sleeps and dreams about providing smart solutions and cutting-edge resources for direct sellers across the globe. The key, in Laurie’s opinion, is the melding of classic core business principles and consumer-focused strategies with modern methods, tools and technology.
Laurie owns The Girardi Group, Inc., a consulting firm serving direct selling companies and directselling.me, a family of entities created to provide direct sellers with the tools and learning opportunities necessary in today’s marketplace. Laurie’s background also includes a Masters Degree in Economics & Entrepreneurship for Educators from the University of Delaware. In May of 2017, Laurie’s company launched the National Direct Selling Registry, the only global business registry, directory and blogging platform for direct sellers. (Blogging engine coming late summer, 2017!) Join our Facebook Community where this fall we’re focusing on Building a BRILLIANT Online Presence!
Beginning in the Fall of 2017, Laurie will turn back to Facebook Live in our NEW directselling.me FB GROUP with season 2 of “It’s Up to ME!” – a live show dedicated to teaching direct sellers how to build businesses through mastering the fundamentals that lead to massive results. She’ll also be expanding the Leadership Series of “It’s Up to ME!” to include “Moxie & Grit” Interviews with Top Leaders featuring the stories and journeys of those who’ve shown perseverance, tenacity and a drive to succeed built upon a belief in something bigger!
