“My goal is to not be better than anyone else, but to be better than I used to be.” — Wayne Dyer
Connie joined AMP in March of 2017, becoming our first Corporate Training Manager. Like all AMP sales leadership, learning AMP sales fundamentals from the ground up, she completed her first canvass of Algonquin/Lake in the Hills and turned to closing Dundee/Gilberts. Simultaneously, Connie began to lead classroom training and conduct field trainings. Within three months, Connie took over in-classroom training and was integral in the transition to iPad and our CRM system.
In March 2020, amid Covid, Connie joined the AMP Strike Force – the field to phone sales team during the stay at home order. Connie worked to build and lead our virtual training classroom structure with a variety of virtual training courses which became a catalyst for our online self-learning sales and product training platform, AMP University. The additional virtual trainings integrate social learning through 3 week long programs for GSV and OPTIMA™. These 3 weeks of training combine field, virtual, and online self-learning for maximum impact and growth.
Connie’s energy and drive to keep trainees motivated begins with Connie herself. Connie paid her way through Illinois State University by cutting hair in dorm rooms across campus. Never one to shy away from making a sale or a dollar, Connie worked 3 summer jobs to avoid student loans. After college, she put her degree in Sociology/Psychology to work at Cova Financial Services as Director of Human Resources, earning her PHR. After a company closure, Connie pivoted, earning certifications in HTML and Adobe Creative Suite for a new career path. She was hired as Creative Director, where she aided both locally owned and national corporations, with website development, branding and design. With her passion for fitness, in addition to design background, she cultivated a deep understanding of sales as a top sales distributor for a fitness and weight loss company.
Connie and her husband Tom love traveling. Mostly Connie loves spending time with her family; Tom, Homeland Security Officer; sons; Aidan (21) Nursing Student and World Champion Powerlifter, Nicolas (16) accomplished choral singer and tennis player, Jake (17) honor student Marion High School, dogs; Kya (Boxer) and Fali (K9 Shepherd).
