    Lisa Clark and Kaylene Balzer, with Beautiful Restoration, will be our speakers for October. They will be speaking on starting and growing a nonprofit focused on healing broken women.


    Beautiful Restoration all began in 2015, in Kaylene & Bryan Balzer’s TV room in Edmond, Oklahoma. They invited broken women to begin the healing process with practical, physical, emotional, and legal support.

    This ministry began to reach women, who then found healing. Those who found healing began to reach women, they might find healing too. There are now countless stories of lives changed forever.

    The motto has become “get healing, give healing.” Each attendee is encouraged to not wait until they are whole, but to reach out to someone, even in their brokenness, who might be where they have come from.

    Gunnar Hood, co-founder of WSI-Summit, will be our speaker in November. Gunnar will share 10 lessons from 10 years of starting and running his own business.


    Gunnar Hood has a passion for helping businesses leverage technology and the Internet to gain visibility and drive business growth.

    Before launching WSI-Summit in 2012, Hood spent 25 years in leadership roles with Fortune 100 financial service companies, designing and implementing customer-focused services.

    An entrepreneur at heart, Hood transitioned from the corporate world to business ownership to fill a gap he identified in the marketplace: Businesses were struggling to keep up with the increasing complexity of the Internet. They were losing business to competitors with better online strategies and visibility.

    Hood recognized that the chasm between SMB’s and Enterprise level businesses was growing wider and to compete, SMB’s needed access to both the strategies and tools used by Fortune 500 companies.

    Hood partnered with WSI Digital Marketing, the world’s largest network of digital marketing agencies, to deliver on those needs. Founded in 1995, WSI has over 450 offices in 80 countries.

    Married for 34 years, Gunnar and his wife Leslie live in Edmond and have 3 grown children. As empty-nesters, they enjoy international adventure travel.


    In 2012 Hood saw that Oklahoma trailed the nation in leveraging the internet to attract new customers and serve existing customers. As he met with businesses, he learned that they were overwhelmed by the increasing complexity of the internet. Many had a website, yet they couldn’t tell if it was bringing them any new business. Business leaders often said they were tired of spending time finding and managing separate suppliers for their website, SEO, social media, etc. Even worse, they had no way of holding their suppliers accountable for results.

    Focus on results with an integrated web presence

    Borrowing on his business and technology experience, Hood set out to create a solution to the problem facing many Oklahoma businesses. He launched WSI-Summit, bringing to market the combination of the global knowledge and footprint of WSI Digital Marketing with Hood’s business experience and local market knowledge. The combination allows him to provide a consultative approach to understanding a company, its business, and its customers while delivering fully integrated solutions that produce measurable results.


The mission of the Oklahoma Professional Sales Association (OKPSA) is to provide an opportunity for successful salespeople and business owners to interact on an informal but upscale basis.
