Carole Pepe, President
As president of the Local Entrepreneur Network, Carole is an innovation enthusiast, social connector, and community builder.
Carole's experience in Employee Engagement, Executive & Leadership Development, Customer Experience, Marketing Strategy, Education, and Community Service give her a unique perspective on what fuels inspiration to yield the innovation of dynamic professionals.
After more than two decades of enjoying various leadership roles at a Fortune 500 Company, Carole realized that it was time to unleash her entrepreneurial spirit to create a new king of community. For years, many enthusiastic innovators have craved social interaction with other innovative dynamic professionals. That's why, in 2013, Carole agreed to become the president of the Local Entrepreneur Network.
At that time, with just 120 members and very low participation, Carole began designing programs that entrepreneurs and business owners need and enjoy. Carole says, "Business owners and entrepreneurs often work many lonely long hours. That's why, here at the Local Entrepreneur Network, we bring you the fun, fast, easy way to increase your business network, grow your professional connections, connect with the real decision makers, and celebrate being an entrepreneur."
Members love getting together for Big Monthly Business Mixers, up-lifting their entrepreneurial edge with Weekly Master Mind Meetings, and sweet little nuggets of industry tips from our blog, and FREE GIFTS designed to save time and money. Carole says it's both an honor and a pleasure supporting the success of local professionals. Over 1,745 members of the Local Entrepreneur Network agree.
Carole is also the president of Growthology Hub, a community of business leaders whose mission is to create a community of inspired, empowered professionals by providing sought after business intelligence via an economical publishing platform that increases visibility, credibility, and conversion rates for contributing authors.
