Your willingness to discuss both the personal and professional aspects of your journey really captured the audience. Your practical advice and inspiring words provided a wonderful foundation for our student athletes to get them going on their own journey… Also, you exemplify the value of taking risks. We all greatly benefited from your discussion.

What a delightful afternoon we spent with Kelly Carter. She won our hearts and minds as she recounted her extraordinary journey to success as a sportswriter, Hollywood reporter and travel writer. Kelly exuded positive energy and wisdom. It is no wonder that Venus Williams collaborated with her to write such an inspiring book as Come to Win.

What others say about Kelly as a writer:
Kelly worked with one of my clients (Venus Williams) and I on a book published by Harper Collins/Amistad entitled “Come to Win” (July, 2010). The book is a compilation of essays by successful business professionals and celebrities who all played competitive sports in their youth. “Come to Win” reached #5 on the New York Times Bestseller list. Kelly played a critical role in identifying appropriate contributors and then securing interviews. Participants included a diverse group of extremely successful people including Jack Welch, Ken Chenault, Condoleeza Rice, Bill Clinton, Vera Wang, Meg Whitman, Denzel Washington, William Cohen and numerous others. The caliber of the contributors and the quality of the editing was important to the success of the book and Kelly did a great job.
Kelly is a key contributor to Elite Traveler. She puts 100 percent behind any assignment and always delivers superb and insightful work. Most of all her positive attitude and creativity always makes it a pleasure to work with her.
