Sandra (Levitin) Morgan is the Founder/CEO/Publisher of Kalön Women (www.kalonwomen.com), an online magazine and blog, – all designed and geared toward supporting her 87,000 (built in a 3 year period solely through social media) subscriber base of women forty plus.
Sandra’s experience and leadership capabilities for the past 30 years led her to be a top salesperson, sales manager and sales trainer for several national and international companies. As a top leader in her field, she moved companies into guiding their training efforts toward the topics of: Developing a Success Blueprint ▪ Creating a Personal Brand ▪ Evaluating “First Impressions” ▪ The Art of Selling ▪ How to Convey Who You Are and What You Do.
In 2002 she became the General Manager of a real estate business, contributing her knowledge and experience to the 5 offices, and 800 Realtors under their brokerage. Although she enjoyed the challenges, there was still something missing.
After making a tough decision, Sandra decided to leave the corporate environment in 2008 and fulfill a 15 year dream of creating a magazine for women forty plus that started with a friend who died from metastatic breast cancer before they could see it through together. Sandra and a few of her friends also began talking about what direction they each wanted their lives to take. Kalön Women was born as a way for us to reach out to other women sharing similar journeys to share our professional and life experiences, enriching one another along the way – all with a touch of humor, which Sandra says is so important because as women, we forget how to laugh and play.
In 2011, Sandra started a sister company called The Network Chefs, a social media marketing, consulting management solutions company in response to the hundreds of emails she received asking her the same question, “How did you do it, and can you teach me?”
Her response to their question, “Through social media, and yes I can!”
Although she began to build a consulting business based on helping people (small business) grow their social media presence, she quickly realized that even with consulting/training, her clients just weren’t able to keep up with it – or – just plain didn’t want to!
The Network Chefs was created to fill that need, and opened its doors in April of 2011! We are rapidly building our customer base and line of social media services to include blogging, eNewsletter creation, websites, wordpress websites, custom Facebook fan pages, custom Twitter page, custom YouTube pages, custom LinkedIn profile, business and group pages.
In recognition and appreciation of Sandra’s commitment to volunteer service, she was awarded The President’s Call to Service Award in 2010 for over 4,000 hours of volunteer service.
