When we work together, it's about you. Still, here are a few things that might be helpful for you to know about "Charlene Ignites."

As an update: Firewalk Sales was recently launched as a brand extension of Charlene Ignites, LLC and is the new home for all of my company's sales training, consulting, and coaching. You can read more about the brand inspiration here. Meanwhile, "Charlene Ignites" will continue to be my personal brand as a speaker and writer.
