Christin Daniels, CEO (Chief Experience Officer)
I loved marketing as a teenager, reading book after book on the subject like they were something out of an Indiana Jones adventure. To me, marketing meant inviting people to discover something great!
My greatest influence has always been my Grandfather. As a salesman and entrepreneur, he supported his family and built the life he’d wanted for he and his wife. Always an inspiration to me, he guided my path into a career in sales.
I started my career in Phoenix, entering the world of B2B solutions sales. I eventually transitioned to San Francisco and then New York where I quickly found my persuading niche: adding value and building relationships. With a similar product/service as my competitors, I stood out by understanding the client’s business, and bringing solutions to move their goals and objectives forward.
This approach led me to managing large accounts like New York Presbyterian Hospital, Credit Suisse, Estee Lauder, Time Magazine and Time Warner. Ultimately the crash of the economy made me reassess my career path, bringing me back to the west coast where I started my own business.
If you’re an entrepreneur, you know owning a business is no small feat. Your customers, clients, those working for you and with you rely on you to deliver on your promises. It doesn’t stop there though- to be truly successfully a business must deliver excellence. I rely on both my professional experience and what I’ve learned as a business owner when creating excellence in a client’s branding, marketing and customer experience.
Five years in, the only void in my business was filled. Amber brings all that was needed and more to complete INSPIRED Vibe. Together we’ve built a system with an effective approach to help businesses move forward in their mission and achieve goals and objectives through communication, strategy, and marketing.
Amber Halvorson, COO (Chief Opportunity Officer)
I spent most of my career playing it pretty safe. For two decades I worked in operations, primarily as a COO, in biotech, behavioral health and the financial services industry. While I was fortunate to work for some truly incredible people, who granted me a fair degree of autonomy in what I did, I was always building their dream.
Within the companies I worked for, my mission was healthy, sustainable, scalable growth. Growing organizations across such diverse industries I developed an innate understanding of what it takes to build successful companies.
Something was missing though, and I knew it was time for me to take the leap and do something on my own. I craved building the company I’d always envisioned. Christin called about that time, and the rest – as they say – is history.
There are days I wonder what would have happened had I done this sooner, yet those prior chapters of trying, failing, building, scaling, stumbling and succeeding strengthen every interaction I have with our clients. My mission is now our client’s growth and success, and I am finally building the company of my dreams.
