Colleen is Featured on

Colleen SlaughterColleen was recently featured in an interview on, a popular website offering an impressive breadth of resources for entrepreneurs, including guidance on business development and growth, marketing info, industry guides, and more.

In the interview, Colleen offers in-depth information about her business, Authentic Leadership International (ALI), including the processes and procedures implemented that have fostered company growth, overcoming challenges, and advice and resources for other business owners.

Colleen shares that outsourcing and delegating have made a substantial impact in taking her business to the next level.  When Colleen came to the realization that she couldn’t do it all herself – and didn’t want to – it was time for a change. “I decided it was time to get help from people that enjoyed and had passion for the things that I didn’t,” explains Colleen.

Colleen highlights the importance of outsourcing when asked what she would do differently if she were starting over again.  “I would have gotten to the point of outsourcing and asking for help sooner, allowing me to focus more clearly on what I do best, giving emerging women leaders the tools to take bolder actions, so they can achieve higher levels of success,” she says.

She also says she wants other business owners just starting out to know how integral it is to be passionate about the business endeavor – to go the extra mile every step of the way. Colleen recommends the following resources for others:
