Kristine Lilly 2x World Cup Champion and 2x Olympic Gold Medal Winner
Kristine Lilly is one of the greatest female soccer players in the history of the game. She retired as a player in 2010 but is still the world’s all-time leader in international appearances, male or female, with 354. She was the first player in U.S. history to hit 100, 200, and 300 caps, the final number being previously unimaginable.
With 130 career goals, she is third all-time in U.S. history and the all-time leader in minutes played. She has worn the U.S. uniform for 28,874 minutes. Remarkably, she appeared for the USA in four different decades and was both the youngest and oldest player ever to score for the U.S. Women’s National Team. She played in five World Cups— winning in 1991 and 1999—and her 30 all-time matches in World Cup play is still a U.S. record. She also played 16 matches over three Olympic Games and won two Olympic gold medals, in 1996 and 2004.
John Sileo Cybersecurity Expert
John Sileo left hi-tech consulting and became an entrepreneur to reclaim his greatest priority—being present for his family. Six successful years, a thriving $2 million business and two precious daughters later, he lost it all to cybercrime.
Because the cybercriminal masked the crimes using John’s identity, Sileo was held responsible for the felonies committed. The losses destroyed his company, decimated his finances, and consumed two years as he fought to stay out of jail. And from these bitter circumstances, Sileo made lemonade.
Sileo is an award-winning author and highly sought after cyber expert from 60 Minutes to the Pentagon, USA Today to Rachel Ray. His satisfied clients include a who’s who of the Fortune 1000, government, associations and small business. The CEO of a Denver-based cyber think tank, an honors graduate from Harvard University, and an inductee into the National Speakers Hall of Fame, John still values his remarkable wife and highly spirited daughters over all other successes.
