From owning her own advertising agency in Miami, Florida at the age of 23 to retiring as an Owner from a large architectural/engineering firm at the age of 46, Belinda Gates has ventured into many successful businesses throughout her career.
After serving the commercial aviation industry in Miami through advertising and public relations, both at her own agency as well as for a large commercial aircraft leasing and cargo airline company, she moved with her family to Louisville, Kentucky.
Belinda then joined Luckett & Farley, one of the largest architectural and engineering firms in the region. After 17 years, she retired as an Owner of the firm.
She then pursued her passion of supporting the success of others through coaching and leadership development. For the past 10 years, Belinda has done just that, through speaking, retreats, outings and corporate and individual coaching.
She also started a successful event management company that provided corporate events and created city-wide foodie events for five years. This venture was with her daughter, who managed the day-to-day operations.
And there's the time that she was instrumental in running the largest flight school in Louisville. As a partner with her husband, they operated a successful Part 141 flight school with five single-engine airplanes.
