Yolanda A. Facio is a writer and consultant whose passion is helping micro business owners, consultant, speakers, coaches and solopreneurs grow their profits, build their client base, and create their ideal business.
For the past twenty years, Yolanda has started and operated several successful businesses, including Exotic Motorwerks, Inc., a Porsche-only automotive service/repair business, and Custom Architectural Woodwork, Inc., serving clients like Neiman Marcus, Ralph Lauren, Radisson, and W Hotels.
Through her experience as an entrepreneur, Yolanda has truly honed in on what it takes to create the ideal business lifestyle—one where business owners get to choose how to work, with whom to work, and when to work. Through her consulting and writing, Yolanda helps other business owners find balance between their working and personal lives. There is nothing she loves more than evangelizing to other business owners on how to raise the bar for themselves. The motto she lives by and impresses upon her clients is, “It’s all about having a good day, every day.”
Yolanda is the author of two Kindle books: Purpose: Build a Business You Love (an Amazon bestseller) and What to Say, How to Say It (an Amazon bestseller). She has written several other ebooks and is a frequent contributor on blogs including She Owns It, Birds on the Blog, and Big Red Tomato, where she writes about small business, marketing, productivity, and entrepreneurial success.
Yolanda has a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies in Business and Communication from Arizona State University and an Associate of Applied Science in Film and Television Production from Scottsdale Community College.
She lives her life like she runs her businesses—with a focus on learning and embracing new skills and experiences. Yolanda’s newest adventures include learning to play guitar and piano and learning to draw, which she adds to her already eclectic mix of interests including distance running, mountain biking, high-performance driving, and target shooting. She lives in Phoenix with her two furry pals.
