Perhaps best known as Donald Trumps right-hand woman on The Apprentice, Carolyn is regarded as one of the nations most successful and high-profile businesswomen.

Her New York Times best-selling business book, Carolyn 101, is a must-read career advice book, offering practical workplace strategies alongside humorous and helpful anecdotes from her own experiences working with Donald Trump.

Carolyn continues to expand her brand with her widely popular website, With women making up over 51% of the workforce in America, the ever growing trend of women taking on larger roles in business, and women starting more small businesses then men, Carolyn decided to create a community for women so that they may talk, discuss, strategize, and seek solid and direct advice from other successful women.
