Leader Spotlight

Beth Peterson

Empowerment Strategist: Creating space for inspiration, productivity, and growth.

In addition to being a crazy mom, loyal friend, lover of all things Charleston, and wine junkie, I am also the Business Center Manager for the King Street location of Office Evolution. Having grown up in an entrepreneurial family and having owned businesses of my own, I love the opportunity to help business owners find workspace solutions and meet their needs as they grow. 

As the owner of Counter Talks w/Beth, I enlist women to empower themselves and move confidently into their Next. I provide safe spaces and share 4 confidence-building habits through workshops, retreats, social events, and one-on-one and group coaching designed to draw out their internal badass and have fun along the way. 

I enjoy participating in events and organizations supporting local businesses and educational programs. As a fangirl volunteer for Charleston Leaders, I get to participate in both building relationships within the business community as well as being a part of creating leadership solutions for Lowcountry teachers and students.
