After a thirty year career in retail selling everything from socks to stocks, with only a computer and a plan, Bobbi Govanus launched her own small business and soon realized that she had discovered a true niche within the computer training industry.
Bobbi quickly grew that business from the basement of her Minnesota home by listening closely to her customers and providing customized computer training and solutions. The company eventually brokered over 1000 high-caliber computer trainers across the United States and Canada and even served clients as far away as England, Japan, Germany and India. She grew the company to sales of over 20 million.
In celebration of these and other accomplishments, Entrepreneur Magazine recognized Bobbi Govanus as their "Home-based" Business Owner of the year and Minnesota honored her as their Women in Business Advocate.
Bobbi has created the Reinvention Retreat at Sea bringing speakers, coaches and authors together to assist attendees who want to make the rest of their life, the best of their life. Bobbi published her first book in 2014, How to Pilot When We Were Raised to BE Stewardesses, Reinventing your Life with Passion and Purpose. This book explores the importance of choosing your own destiny no matter what obstacles you must overcome to do so. She has two anthology books being released in late 2015.
Bobbi delivers talks to encourage her audiences to move out of their comfort zones in business and in their personal lives. She calls upon storytelling, humor and real life examples to move people from their RUT to their Reinvention!
