Beth Fisher is an engaging author, speaker, business leader, leukemia-survivor, and marathoner with a passion for helping women overcome adversity. She’s spent much of her life in a constant struggle between living up to others’ expectations and finding her true self. Today, she uses her own experiences to help other, driven, professional women align their outward communication skills with who they truly are inside.
The key to being recognized for who you are lies in one vital skill: Change Your Tone.
Beth Fisher has helped countless individuals identify their missing link to help them show up authentically in the professional world, so they can change their tone while always staying true to themselves. Beth’s coaching helps career-focused women be seen, heard, and appreciated in every room they enter.
In January of 2020, Beth left her successful twenty-five-year sales and marketing career where she implemented solutions to automate business process improvement. She now serves as the Chief Advancement Officer for Mel Trotter Ministries, the largest provider of services to people experiencing homelessness in West Michigan, where she combines her experience and love for business with her passion for helping the underserved community.
Beth co-hosts the Mel Trotter Ministries’ podcast, Everyday Humanity, and has hosted her own The Remorselesspodcast. She also actively consults with for-profit organizations and faith-based missions around the country, helping them increase fundraising and communication efforts through automated business processes—including CRMs, workflows, marketing integrations, and organizational and team structures.
Beth holds two master’s degrees in Theology, founded her own consulting company, and is a certified leadership and development coach.
For so many years of my life, I succumbed to a lesser version of myself. Believing I was strong, smart, or capable was often dissuaded under the heading of bragging or thinking I was better than others. The thing was—and is still true today—I just want to do the best I can do. And I want everyone to do they best they can do, too. It doesn’t matter what that means or looks like, because we are all uniquely made and gifted with varying interests and situations.
When I was younger, I was chastised for being too “bossy.” What does that even mean? I had a brain and a voice, so it made other people feel uncomfortable? Yes. Rather than feeling the constant sadness that comes from being labeled and left out, I decided to get quieter and pretend to be someone I was not in order to be liked.
That was hell. Living as an imposter version of yourself is a SLOW DEATH. It takes you off course and derails your trajectory.
As a mom to a strong, independent twenty-six-year-old daughter who is just starting out in the working world, if I have to hear ONE MORE TIME that her superiors tell her she is “too confident” or “too opiniated”—I am going to scream. Or go to jail.
She is my why. I am my why. YOU are my why. No more. I refuse to believe you cannot be both compassionate and strong. I refuse to believe you cannot make a difference in this world without being sorry for doing so.
I am on a mission the second half of my life to start a MOVEMENT for all women to find their voices and take charge of their lives.
