      Heather Crider
      Founder of Heather J Crider & Company

      Topic

      Searching inside yourself during COVID and beyond. Skills for high performance in any environment.

      Want to know how to get an elite type of training that businesses such as, AT&T, American Express, Google, and Plantronics rave about as part of their secret success? Then keep reading...

      Why are we so envious of stories where a brilliant business idea or solution was spun during a spontaneous friendly match of ping pong (or insert another random game here)? Simply because it’s fun? No. Playing sports in the backyard is fun, but that won’t make you any money.

      We like these types of stories because they’re the perfect harmony between business success and personal success. They showcase what’s possible when the mind is opened to new possibilities and freed from the confines of the cubicle.

      I’m the conduit who meets you at the intersection of mindfulness and business, providing a roadmap for unbounded success.

      This intersection is where your full potential is unlocked and where new levels of success are achieved. All by using principles backed by neuroscience, emotional intelligence, and mindfulness. Bringing happiness and joy, peace and success…all while unleashing infinite potential!

      I help you balance profits with joy by:

      * reducing stress through proper business alignment

      * implementing problem-solving tools through mindfulness and emotional intelligence

      * training compassionate and effective leaders

      * connecting professional and personal goals

      * creating freedom, confidence, harmony, and fulfillment in businesses and employees

      * utilizing proven neuroscience research

      My specialties include digital media, consumer behavior, brand awareness, omni-channel marketing campaigns, neuromarketing, mindfulness-based growth strategies, leadership growth, and neurocoaching.

      I’ve successfully started and grown 4 corporations and have implemented marketing and business campaigns for over 200 other companies, including several large Fortune 50 companies. I’m the author of “The Digital Marketing Success Formula: The Six Simple Steps to Attracting and Retaining the Perfect Client Online”, and was recently featured in “Forbes" discussing the impact of mindfulness and business success. I was featured on John Assaraf’s Brain-A-Thon as a success story from neuroscience backed techniques.

      I’m a proud mom of two, a self-diagnosed coffee addict/snob and an avid sports fan!
