For the past two decades, Fabienne has been a business mentor to thousands of women business owners, as the founder of boldheart.com. The Bold Heart Business Program is based on her experience and has created a model that predictably helps you grow your revenue from five to six figures consistently. Her program also teaches you how to leverage your six-figure to seven figures.
Fabienne Fredrickson is the author of the new book, The Leveraged Business, which I have absolutely devoured to find out more about scaling. She started scaling her business as she soon hit a roadblock with time. “I could not grow because there was no more time and no more of me to go around.”

I’m excited to have another kick-ass saleswoman on board today, Caitlin Doemner. Caitlin is one of my sales trainers who I absolutely love! I recently completed her Referrals on Demand class, which was fabulous for so many reasons!

Working with some of the most prestigious coaches in their industries, including Deepak Chopra, Ali Brown, Mastin Kipp, and Fabienne Fredrickson, Caitlin has generated over $11M in new revenue for its clients in eight years. In addition, she has closed over $2.5M in coaching services in less than 12 months.
She is the author of multiple books, including “The Unseen Sales Machine” and “Sell with Heart.” After realizing the coaching industry needed more transparency, she launched BookofExperts.com and BookofExperts.TV - two referral networks and a media company that gives transformational leaders such as coaches and consultants more visibility and consistent referrals.
Changing Your Mindset and Transformation
She emphasizes that to change your mindset, you’ll need to make space in your thought process. “When you are holding sacred space for transformation, the act of selling is changing their life and you guys need to own that at a gut level.”
