Frumi Rachel Barr, MBA PhD
Author, CEO, CFO, Certified Gazelles Coach
Dr. Frumi Rachel Barr has long been a CEO Coach, Confidante and Mentor. Frumi has a passion for creating fabulous cultures for leaders and their teams. She did so for her own companies, and loves to do so for clients.
Frumi is truly an entrepreneur having started and run 5 entrepreneurial adventures prior to starting The Frumi Group of companies. She has a wealth of experience having been a CEO who survived being in the trenches herself. Her own WHY is creating a safe environment for leaders and their teams to talk about what matters most to build profitable and sustainable organizations.
Frumi is very proud of all her grown children (they’re all off the payroll). She is frequently asked how she managed to raise them, run businesses and never even have maternity leave (a luxury not experienced by entrepreneurs).
In the past, Frumi’s companies grew rapidly – too rapidly! As a result she has embraced the Gazelles system to ensure that companies don’t “grow broke” and instead build healthy sustainable organizations.
Dr. Barr is the author of A CEO’s Secret Weapon: How to Accelerate Success. The book was ranked top business book of 2012 by ExecRank and has a forward by her colleague Simon Sinek, international author of best-selling Start with Why.
As one reader wrote “No one is better equipped to mentor and nurture female entrepreneurs than Frumi. Herself a successful entrepreneur, mother, friend and community leader. Frumi understands an entrepreneur’s excitement, temptations and fear intimately because she has been there, done that. Reading her story is like swallowing a big dose of courage. You feel as though you could overcome anything because she has faced life’s hardest challenges with aplomb and transformed herself into a stronger, happier and better woman each time.”
