If you are not a 10x marketer, are you or your company to blame?
She's not a myth. Some marketers generate ten times (or a hundred times) as much value as a typical marketing person. How come? The 10x marketer understands that the job isn't to do marketing the way the person before you...

After the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia, a former shoe salesman was inspired to create Soles4Souls, a non-profit that has distributed more than ​19 million pairs of shoes to those affected by natural disaster and by poverty. Now, his latest venture uses shoes and clothing to launch micro-enterprises throughout the developing world.

Introduction

Wayne Elsey is the Founder and former CEO of Soles4Souls, author oftvarious books including Almost Isn't Good Enough, the Not Your Fathers Charity Book Series and current Founder & CEO of Elsey Enterprises.

Elsey started working in the footwear industry at the age of 15 and continued in a myriad of manufacturing, managerial, sales and marketing positions. From 1999 to 2004 Elsey served as President/CEO of Footwear Specialties International (FSI). During that time, FSI grew over 400 percent in revenue. In 2005, Elsey was named President of Kodiak-Terra USA where he remained until becoming the Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls in 2007. Under his guidance, Soles4Souls became one of the top 1% of nonprofit organizations in the United States in just 4 years. To date, S4S has distributed over 19 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries to victims of natural disasters and abject poverty.

After leaving Soles4Souls, Wayne launched Elsey Enterprises (EE), a company that works with nonprofit and for profit organizations on strategy, branding and development. WEE has 3 divisions: strategic, educational and fundraising. The Strategic Division consults with organizations to strengthen identity and drive success. The 2nd division, SocialGoodU, is an online educational site designed to give nonprofit leaders the knowledge and understanding to help their organizations succeed. The 3rd division, Funds2Orgs, is a social enterprise that offers 3 compelling advantages: 1. Provides domestic nonprofits the ability to raise funds by carrying out engaging programs; 2. Creates and sustains micro-enterprise opportunities for low-income entrepreneurs in developing nations; and 3. Dramatically reduces the impact of post-consumer waste in our nation's landfills.

Wayne is also a highly sought after public speaker and authority on topics related to leadership, branding, social activism, motivation, and community engagement. His network appearances include: NBC Nightly News, Good Morning America, Today Show, & Fox News.

Specialties:Nonprofit Leadership, Nonprofit Marketing, branding and identity, leadership, people development, management, strategic planning, branding,
