She has interviewed hundreds of world-renowned luminaries, including Sir Richard Branson, Seth Godin, Tony Shae, Jack Canfield, Marcy Shimoff, Mary O’Hemmingway and Guy Laliberté, the founder of Cirque du Soleil. According to Matchbook Gail was one of 2009’s top 25 most inspirational people on Twitter. Prior to Inspire Me Today, Gail spent several years managing her daughter Carly’s recording career.
