About Us

Hi there!  I’m Deirdre.

I don’t believe in boring you with a laundry list of credentials.

However, if you’re reading this section of our website, it’s likely because you want to know more about me, so here goes:

First and foremost, I’m a wordsmith.  I love and have always loved words. Words have the power to create and the power to destroy. Words actually saved my life (feel free to ask me about that).

In part, due to my love of words, in 2011 I founded a company called Crazy Good Talks®. We exist to help mission-driven entrepreneurs (financial professionals, speakers, authors, and consultants) and executives weave their words and ideas together in a way that wins business, attracts top talent, and impacts more lives.

As for my other credentials, I’m a top-rated, International Keynoter, Trainer, and Story Strategist.  I’m a Certified World Class Speaking Coach, Cerfired Fearless Living Coach, author of the book Fire Your Fear and host of the Crazy Good Talks® podcast.

I’m passionate about this work and feel blessed every day to help my clients succeed.

On a personal note, I’m an Italian, Irish, New Yorker living in Minnesota, where I try hard not to scare people with my loud voice and enthusiastic hand gestures.

I love boating, travel, wellness, reading, bible study, personal development, getting involved in causes I am passionate about, and hanging out with my family and friends.

I enjoy collaborating with talented people, so to best serve you, we team up strategic partners on certain projects. I also have an amazing core team, one who helps bring my vision to life. I’d love to introduce you to them below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ali Rumler-Gomez

As the Business Manager and Integrator, I’m dedicated to creating an environment where Crazy Good Talks is functioning with highest and best purpose. I work behind the scenes to build client-centric systems that inspire team members to work independently, to think critically, to create fearlessly, and deliver excellence. I am committed to the company’s core values of love, integrity and ownership, and work with the team to ensure every client feels those values when they work with us.

I am a graduate of Millikin University with a degree in Political Science. My professional background is in organizational leadership with 15 years in Chief Executive roles. I have countless certifications in performance management, project management, change management and business development.

I am passionate about the work we do at Crazy Good Talks. My goal is to grow and scale our business so that every client has the help they need to create and effectively share their story!

Lillian Davis

As the Client Relationship Manager and Executive Assistant to the CEO, I ensure things are running smoothly and efficiently with our clients.  I have the privilege of connecting with financial professionals and entrepreneurs to ensure we are doing our best to help them reach their goals.

I love this work because I get to see where our clients’ journeys begin and end. It’s a joy to see them blossom and become Crazy Good Speakers!

I have been a part of the Crazy Good Talks® team since 2016 and bring over 25 years of experience in administrative support, human resources, office management and bookkeeping. I love a challenge and am always looking for the best solution in every situation.

Grace Smith

As a Media Content Specialist, I’m a company-wide wordsmith.

I’m the Story Artist who writes, edits, and perfects our clients’ Personal Brand WHY Stories, working behind-the-scenes to capture their unique voice and style through our comprehensive writing and editing process.

On top of this, I help largely with email marketing, and I dabble in social media.

I’m a storyteller at a heart, who grew up scribbling in journals, reading books at an obnoxious speed, and eventually getting a college degree in English-Writing.

I love this work because not only do I get to help people find their voice and tell their stories to the world, I get to do it with an amazing, hilarious, and Godly team, who push me to be my best every single day.

At Crazy Good Talks® we take giving back seriously!

Supporting causes we believe in with our resources- -money, time, and talents- – is one of the main pillars of our business. So when you work with us, you’re also supporting those in need and giving back to the world.

One of the organizations we give to is Hope International.

Hope provides micro finance loans and business development training- – with a focus on biblical business and life principles- – to entrepreneurs in underserved countries. What amazes us about Hope is that they have a 98% repayment rate on their loans worldwide! God is at work and great things are happening for people all over the world through Hope’s programs. We HOPE you check them out!
