Dynamic mother-daughter duo Rita Mitchell and Britt Mitchell will share “What They Know for Sure About Elevating Success” with Middle Tennessee State University students during a presentation set for Tuesday, Sept. 26, at Keathley University Theater.
The presentation, which is free and open to the public, will start at 1 p.m. Sept. 26, and includes the speakers sharing their Top 10 tips to help jump-start and accelerate successful career journeys. A book signing will follow.
Former Nashville bank executive Rita P. Mitchell retired from a 40-plus-year career in financial services to pursue her lifelong passion of elevating and empowering people to own the journey to their desired success. Inspired by one of her favorite business books, “Who Moved My Cheese,” by Spencer Johnson and Kenneth Blanchard, Mitchell had always aspired to write a book that would make readers stop, reflect and change.
On the journey to becoming a best-selling author, Mitchell simultaneously built a Black-owned, woman-owned, mother-daughter company with her daughter, Britt Mitchell, an accomplished global marketing professional with 15-plus years in marketing, branding and sales. The younger Mitchell is actively climbing the corporate ladder and currently works at a global tech company in New York.
Together, they are best-selling authors, speakers, and empowerment coaches.
In 2018, Rita Mitchell spoke on the TEDx stage on “Owning Your Power” and her daughter became her chief marketing officer and built out their company brand and all aspects of the marketing. Their uplifting message that teaches both personal joy and corporate success quickly resonated around the country.
The duo travels the country teaching affirmation thinking and vision boarding. Their talks include information from their two popular books: “Own Your Phenomenal Self: A Guide on Character, Success, and Leadership,”, an Amazon Bestseller in mentoring and coaching, and “Spoken Art: Too Brave to Back Down,”which is a book about not getting “lost in someone else’s sauce.” It is told through the power of art, poetry and affirmations.
