Gail Clanton enjoys few things more than using words to sell, inspire, and motivate. She writes professionally and helps businesses and entrepreneurs create copy that successfully gets their points across, while profitably adding to their bottom lines.

Posts on her blog, Diary of a Grown-Up Church Girl, reveal that Gail has successfully bounced back from some hard blows, including an ugly divorce, financial hardships, and dreams deferred.  She used these and other life experiences to write chapters in three book compilations and to launch a speaking and coaching business.

As a speaker, Gail shares with groups of all sizes about her life experiences, revealing the good, the bad, and the ugly of what she’s been through. More importantly, she shares strategies she used to get to her strength and her SPARKLE back.  “My bounce back has been amazing,” is what she often says, and she wants people to know that their bounce back can be amazing, too.

A certified professional life coach, as well as a Christian life coach, Gail created a popular online self-discovery course, “4 Weeks to Getting Your Spunk and SPARKLE back,” Through this course, and the accompanying Facebook group, Gail helps women get in touch with their own internal power source so that they gain more complete happiness, fulfillment, and joy.

Her writing, as well as her coaching and speaking, are each sprinkled with a healthy dose of laughter, honesty and common sense.  You read her words and leave her presence inspired to reach a higher level of happiness and satisfaction, believing that you deserve nothing less.

Gail’s work has appeared in The Black Woman’s Book of Travel and Adventure, Our Fathers Which Art In Heaven, and Women Inspiring Nations.  She is also a contributing writer for the monthly magazine, Impact The World.

When Gail isn’t writing, coaching, or speaking, she enjoys singing, shopping, and traveling.
