Jill Felts recently spoke at our conference. This event was a gathering of about 100 entrepreneurs looking to start national or international businesses. Jill spoke in the capacity of a successful entrepreneur, sharing her lessons learned and offering advice and encouragement to the group. Her presentation was well organized and her points were clear and concise and were illustrated with entertaining real-life experiences. Her demeanor as a presenter is warm, engaging, interesting, and inspiring – as well as very believable. She received among the highest reviews from participant evaluations. In addition, she attended the entire event, taking advantage of all opportunities to interact with participants one-on-one to inspire and encourage them. She will make a wonderful addition to any event. She is an example that a person with rock-solid personal values can still be successful in business!

PeopleSourcer had the pleasure of hosting Jill Felts as an inspirational speaker at our 2014 Kick Off meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. Jill’s ability to motivate; as well as inspire, is second to none. She has natural motivational ability through personal examples to express the true meaning of success. She gave us the chance to be challenged in our assumptions and see our situation from a very different perspective. Personally and professionally, I believe everyone walked away with a special message. Thank you Jill!

I had the privilege of hearing Jill speak to an audience of 100 who she captivated for nearly an hour. She is a very authentic and engaging speaker. Her gentle and caring personality comes beaming through when she talks and you can just tell how much she genuinely cares as she shares her stories from her heart. She is a gift from God and as real as they come. I’m enriched and blessed to know her.”

This isn't just another jewelry party... the pieces touch people. All I had to do was show the piece and explain the inspiration behind it. My guests were eager to pass on that inspiration to their friends and family. – Sue Ann, Fredericksburg, VA
What was amazing was how the jewelry brought out stories from my guests. Two people would purchase the same piece, each with their own story of what it will mean to them. – Jennifer, Atlanta, GA
I absolutely love the Compelling Creations items. The items I ordered will make perfect gifts for two very special family members of mine . . . and of course I had to order something for myself! – MJ Benisch, Columbus, WI
I love your faith jewelry! Not only is the quality exceptional, but I wear it with a purpose because I believe in, and live what it communicates. – Katrina, Seattle, WA
My Grandmother’s favorite saying was “Let Go, Let God” – she passed away 5 days after I returned from the conference. I am so excited to receive this charm and will wear it in memory of my Grandma! I love your jewelry! – Tracy Max, MN
