During the second week of November,CJ Scarlet, CEO of Roving Coach Int'l, was inducted into the YWCA's2012 Academy of Women in Raleigh, NC, then received the TrailblazerAward from the Greater Women's Business Council in Atlanta, GA.
CJ Scarlet of Roving Coach International (RCI) managed to rack up twomajor awards in less than a week. On November 9th in Raleigh, NC, shewas one of ten women inducted into the 2011 Class of the Academy ofWomen sponsored by the YWCA of the Greater Triangle. The Academy is theregion’s most prestigious honor for women who are the best at what theydo while upholding the mission of the YWCA – to eliminate racism andempower women. CJ, an award-winning author, motivational speaker, andlife transitions coach, received the Entrepreneurship Award as ChiefRover and CEO of RCI, the preeminent North Carolina-based employeeengagement company founded to make career development coachingavailable to employees at all levels (not just the “big dogs!).
Three days later, CJ traveled to Atlanta to attend the 2011 LACE(Ladies Achieving Continuous Excellence) Awards hosted by the GreaterWomen’s Business Council (GWBC), an organization for certified womenbusiness enterprises in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.Doggone-it if she didn’t win again! She graciously accepted theTrailblazer Award for exhibiting community and business leadership,being innovative, and taking risks.
Put the emphasis on “taking risks,” because that’s exactly what CJ didin 2009 when she and two business partners put everything on the lineto create a world-changing international company. Today,Roving Coach is well on its way to that goal with CJ using herexceptional entrepreneurial skills to propel RCI to national acclaimand expansion into the UK.
“I’m still processing the fact that, in one week, two distinguishedorganizations like the YWCA and the GWBC recognized our vision and hardwork,” CJ exclaimed as she showed off her trophies. “It’s certainlyhumbling and exhilarating to be recognized by two groups whose goalsare so perfectly aligned with what we do at Roving Coach. We’recreating world peace in the workplace by helping companies develop andempower their employees.”
A compelling part of CJ’s story began in 2002 when she was diagnosedwith two autoimmune conditions that nearly took her life. An encounterwith a Tibetan Buddhist lama taught her that she was in control of herown happiness, and as she began to find joy and inner peace throughhelping others, her conditions began to reverse themselves until, by2007, they went into remission. In 2008, she founded The Healing TreeFoundation to aid victims of abuse and launched the Kindness CureCampaign to encourage people to perform one million acts of kindness. Alupus thriver, she is a member of the Board of Directors for the NCLupus Foundation and volunteers with Hospice of Wake County, UNCHospitals, the NC Alliance for the Mentally Ill, and the GreaterWomen’s Business Council’s Voice Committee.
