Inner Fire Graphic Design celia@tuneupmymarketing.com http://www.innerfiregraphicdesign.com I’m working on rebranding my business to Inner Fire Graphic Design. I serve women-owned service-based businesses to hone their emotional and visual impact via marketing tools for faster connection, prospect excitement and sales. The concept is the “fire” of a diamond. It is by how we cut, hone and shape the raw gem, how we present it, that increases it’s value and appeal. We would pay much more for a cut diamond than a raw one, the same is true with your business. The better you present your business, the greater perceived value and trust there is. That’s what I do, give your business that inner fire.

Keynote Speaker: Elizabeth Kizito
“Love, Perseverance & The American Dream: Elizabeth Kizito’s Story of Business (and Life) Success”

Elizabeth Kizito is a native of Uganda, East Africa. Born under a banana tree, she grew up working on her mother’s farm and in her father’s bakery. After coming to the U.S. in 1975, Elizabeth helped pay her way through college by working in restaurants.

After her father’s death in 1978, Elizabeth stayed in the US and worked to finance the education of several orphaned nieces and nephews. She restored her family home in Uganda after it was ravaged by civil war and provided support for siblings to create self-sustainable businesses in Uganda.

In 1984 Elizabeth started baking Kizito cookies in her kitchen at home to raise money for her sons’ first birthday present. Going door to door led to a vending cart in downtown Louisville and, with the help of countless friends, Elizabeth opened her bakery in 1989.

She is a recipient of the Mosaic Award, presented by the Jewish Family and Career Services, Today’s Woman’s “Most Admired Woman” in 2002, and the first inductee into its Hall of Fame. She also was named 2003 “Woman Business Owner of the Year” by the Louisville Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners.

Elizabeth owns a home in the Cherokee Triangle, where she raised two sons and currently lives with her husband, Todd.
