She was 10 when she caught the entrepreneurial bug. Her idea was simple, effective and something she knew well. Linda Olson packaged garden seeds and sold them for 10 cents a pack on her bicycle farm to farm. She was bit by the bug! She says it simply, “I learned more about the importance of developing trust and strength through relationships than I knew was possible. The biggest surprise was that people loved paying me for my seeds. There was nothing hard about it.” Thus began a true entrepreneurial journey in the mastering of a million dollar, money-making skill. A journey that only 4 years later saved her when in a moment her sweet, innocent life turned to darkness, an unimaginable sorrow.
What does a young person do when they are derailed from what they thought life was? What happens when life was, only a moment ago, a benevolent, sweet – and in the next moment darker than even the most imaginable nightmare? Truth be told, – It breaks you – Or you break it! It took work, – but Linda Olson broke it. She shattered it! Not in a moment but in weeks, months, and years of dedication to the development and sharing of relationship skills forged by the fire of necessity.
And so Linda Olson became one of those rare people that life seems to direct unabashedly to their destiny. She became a master at guiding entrepreneurs, business men & women, speakers, authors, consultants, and leaders into the very success they had tried so hard to create. Her work does not come with a magic wand, even though the outcomes she creates tend to leave even the strongest with mouth agape at the results.
Like her upbringing, Linda has a simple (if not always easy) clear and even delicious way of breaking down excuses, of creating surprising change that sticks, of calming the ego and awakening new pathways, and of directing higher intelligence into the relationships at work, home and with self.
Those looking for a pretend fix are not Linda’s clients. She works with the companies and organizations and leaders that are sincere about change – with Linda Olson it’s about creating life changing, eye opening, deep relief from the very things that sabotage the success of the individual and the entire company/organization.
If you, your company, organization, leaders, even your industry has been holding your breath waiting, wishing, hoping to create change that will last, – well, Linda Olson is the unexpected exhale you have been waiting for.
