I am Keirsten Taillon

Founder of MaxPotentials

I started my business in 2001 for three main reasons:

1. I wanted to have freedom to create what I knew to be the best solutions for my clients,

2. I wanted to escape the corporate limitations and having to “fit into” the suits and constraints of corporate America, and

3. I wanted to make a difference and still have a life.

I did have success in achieving these goals but, while I looked successful on the outside I was being crushed on the inside. As a single mother of two I would wake at 3am to work on my dissertation before getting the kids to daycare and doing client work all day. I would then pick up the kids from daycare, feed and bath them and get them to bed to work a few more hours on client work and dissertation writing and then finish up the day at midnight. I was exhausted and depleted. And while I was making good revenues, it was not enough to meet my financial obligations.

One day I received a call that knocked me to my knees and left me ready to give up. That was the day that changed my life. I unhooked myself from my ego and reevaluated my business and life. I took control of my schedule, created a strong and compelling strategic plan, committed to my mission to help a million women to a million dollars – because the more women who make high profits the better our world will be – and reclaimed my energy. I have since completed my doctorate and my dissertation “Business Growth for women entrepreneurs: an applied project and program evaluation” and turned my business around in beautiful ways. I am happy, fulfilled and my business if flourishing and growing.

Professional Bio

Dr. Keirsten Taillon, is a Business Growth Strategist and a compassionate catalyst for leaders and entrepreneurs. Her mission is to help a Million Women to a Million Dollars to allow for women to achieve greater sense of fulfillment as well as power to make positive changes in the world. She has supported thousands of leaders in moving their organizations to the next level and developing their own leadership capacity.

Keirsten has over 20 years of experience with both small and large organizations and brings that expertise to her clients as a seasoned consultant, coach, and guide. Her expertise is in quickly understanding core business challenges and facilitating the implementation of solutions that maximize results and align with business goals and vision.

As a woman entrepreneur, an athlete, and most importantly a mother of two active kids, Keirsten was unsatisfied at the traditional approach to business growth consulting. In managing her own business growth, the typical advice and best practices fell flat of her dynamic and integrated vision. And, the research for supporting others’ business growth seemed to ignore or minimize that which was most real for the women entrepreneurs that she supported.

Therefore, Dr. Taillon committed her doctoral research to better understand just what it takes for women entrepreneurs to grow their businesses. She has built solutions to meet the unique and dynamic needs and desires of women entrepreneurs and is committed to serving women entrepreneurs in maximizing their potential.
