The Author

Carrie Perrien Smith works with clients who want more clients, bigger paydays, and sweeter success.

Smith-57-webtalkradio-165x210Carrie Perrien Smith MBA is a training, communication, and publishing industry veteran. She ran screaming from her corporate career in 2001. Even though she sometimes misses regular paychecks, a cubicle with office supplies she didn’t have to purchase, and normal working hours, she wouldn’t trade the entrepreneur’s kill-what-you-eat lifestyle (most days, at least).

Today, this third-generation entrepreneur runs a marketing, branding, and publishing company. She works internationally with business leaders, candidates, and growing companies who want to brand themselves as experts in their industry and build a speaking and consulting business.

Business owners trust Carrie because she’s one of them. She’s the first one in line to mentor them, challenge their ideas, cheer them on, and sometimes catch them before they go over the cliff. She supports causes that pave the way for business owners because they are the foundation and the future of our economy.

Tons of advances have happened during her career that spans thirty years in the communication, training, and publishing industry. That evolution puts the power in your hands to be a published author and tell the world about your work. She mingles the best of the old-school, tried-and-true techniques and the new-tech publishing and communication tools to help her clients build a brand that screams EXPERT AND WORTH EVERY PENNY!

She most enjoys working with emerging leaders and business owners. A grateful woman of faith, Carrie uses her life’s work and volunteer service to honor and serve God. She devotes hundreds of hours each year to her community.

She started her company, Soar with Eagles, in 2003. Also a speaker, consultant, and writer, Carrie is the author of Like You Own It: Breakthrough Strategies for Confident Living and Currency: Striking Networking Gold in a Relationship Economy and the coauthor of Wise Words for Smart Teens: The Teenager’s Guide to a Great Life. She publishes a blog for NWAMotherlode.com called Empty Nexter and has hosted an internet radio show called Business: Engaged! She and her husband have just launched their blog HouseoftheBlackDogs.com where they talk about paws, love, and rock and roll.

Carrie holds a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management and an MBA with an emphasis in Leadership and Ethics, both from John Brown University.

She lives in Rogers, Arkansas with her husband, Tom. They are in a classic rock party band called Paper Jam. They share their empty nest with their rescued and now hopelessly spoiled fur children Jazmin with Teeth, Midgieboy, and Chloe Needletoes.
