Susan Solovic

Entrepreneur, CEO, Journalist, Attorney, Known as The Growth Gal

A woman of many talents, Susan Wilson Solovic is an award-winning entrepreneur, a CEO, a journalist, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Amazon top 100 bestselling author, multi-media personality, and attorney. But behind every achievement, Solovic embodies ideas that make her universally —and intimately— relatable to all entrepreneurs: hard work, fortitude, and persistence. In a world of quick and questionable viral fame, Solovic is a rare commodity: she is what she preaches.

Raised in rural Missouri by entrepreneurial parents, Solovic learned early the meaning and value of becoming one’s own boss. At the age of 15, when most adolescents are preoccupied with growing up, Solovic had already started her own business giving baton-twirling lessons. She would go on to be the first in her family to graduate from law school—made possible by working full time. But later on, feeling that law was not her ultimate calling, Solovic tapped into her entrepreneurial spirit by building a company from the ground up. As CEO and co-founder of ItsYourBiz.com (formerly SBTV.com), Solovic led the company from a concept to a multi-million dollar, award-winning enterprise. In 2006, Solovic accepted the Stevie Award on behalf of ItsYourBiz.com for the Most Innovative Company under 100 employees; that same year, ItsYourBiz.com was voted the Best Investment Opportunity presenting to a Venture Forum event in the Silicon Valley.

Solovic is also a sought-after keynote speaker, as well as a small-business contributor for ABC News, and she is a regular guest expert on Fox Business News.  In 2011, Solovic launched a nationally syndicated radio show, It’s Your Biz with Susan Solovic, during which she invites leading entrepreneurial experts from across the country to share their unique perspectives on the world of small business. In conjunction with PBS, she created a feature program called Reinvent Yourself Now: Become Self-Reliant in an Unpredictable World. In addition to television and radio appearances, Solovic is a featured blogger on numerous sites, including Huffington Post, Constant Contact, WSJ.com and Fast Company.
Solovic has written three bestselling books: The Girls’ Guide to Power and Success; Reinvent Your Career: Attain the Success You Desire and Deserve and The Girls’ Guide to Building a Million-Dollar Business. A fervent activist for women entrepreneurs, she serves on the Board of Directors for the Institute for the Economic Empowerment of Women.  Previously, she served on the National Women’s Business Council, which counsels the President, Congress, and the SBA on issues affecting women business owners. She is also a past member of the Women’s Leadership Board at Harvard University, and was Vice President of the Board of Directors of WIPP, Women Impacting Public Policy. In 2009, Solovic received the Institute for Women’s Entrepreneurship Leader of Distinction Award, and in 2008 she was the first recipient of AT&T’s Innovator of the Year Award for being a pioneer in a new industry.

Solovic also currently serves on the advisory board for the John Cook School of Business Entrepreneurial Studies at Saint Louis University, one of the top-rated entrepreneurial schools in the United States and she is an adjunct professor of entrepreneurship at the University.

And somehow she still finds time for hobbies: Solovic is an avid cook and pianist, and believes in living a healthy lifestyle. She has a passion for meeting and learning about new people and making a positive impact on their lives—that is her raison d’être. Having reinvented herself time and time again–while still holding on to core principles–she is an archetype of the entrepreneurial spirit, which affords her a unique vantage point from which to share information and insight with business owners around the world.

Shenandoah University

On behalf of Shenandoah University, students, small businesses and myself let me once again thank you for taking the time to keynote our 4th Annual Small Business Symposium. You were nothing short of spectacular! Your keynote was informative, motivating, interesting, engaging and most of all fun! I heard and received many many great comments from attendees but my favorite is this. ” I felt like she was talking just to me, and have decided that if she can do it I can do it!”

CEO Clubs of NY

Susan Solovic recently spoke to the members of the CEO Clubs NYC at the Harvard Club, her talk was both inspirational and informative. Susan’s focused presentation on media and how to use it to market your business was a high energy intensive primer to the insights of her industry. The feedback was unanimous with very valuable walk away ideas and real usable information – she made a lasting impression; Susan left us all wanting more!?I welcome another opportunity to see her speak. I highly recommend following Susan.???

Corporation Service Company

Great job Susan!! It was fantastic. I can always tell the quality of the webinar based on how many questions and how much interest we generate from the audience— we had LOTS of questions! And I have to say— no matter how big the name, this is the first time we’ve ever had participants asking where they can find you in person! Thanks so much for your time and your awesome presentation!
