Meet the Crew

What is a “SME”?

SME is a Subject Matter Expert. Lucky for you, there are no general marketers at @revenue. Only those that have cultivated a specialized skill set, and are thought leaders and experts in their areas of focus.

Our sophisticated team takes a strategic look at your business and crafts a strategy for where you are now, and what will help you elevate and grow. You are a master at what you do. @revenue will partner with you to get you back to doing what you do best while your sales and marketing machine keeps moving you forward.


For more than 20 years Marie revolutionized small business marketing and sales in the Chicagoland area with her private consulting practice, Lipstic Logic. Marie has taken those successful years of experience and now provides our clients with effective, innovative sales and marketing strategies that allow them to grow their business, empower their sales knowledge and utilize systems that allow them to automate or delegate accordingly so they can focus on their clients and what they do best. She is also proud to say that she graduated from Jim Rosas’ Sales Results, Inc. program with a Black Belt in Sales.

Marie was honored to accept the Midwest Women in Tech Leadership Award as well as the Expertise Award for Business Consulting in Chicago in 2019 & 2020.

Beloved Father, Coach, Friend, and Partner.

Co-Founder, @revenue

Jim lived his passion by empowering small businesses to create more profit and giving them and their families a brighter future. Drawing from his depth of knowledge, his organization, @revenue, experienced astounding growth in the 9 months that he was at the helm before his passing. As it reorganizes, the kindness of those that were impacted by Jim has helped to keep it thriving and growing in homage to his signature energy and zest for life.

Beloved Sister, Aunt, Daughter, Friend.

Office Maven, @revenue

Laura’s driving passion was to love the people around her. There are a million stories about her that would have tears rolling down your cheeks and bursting into laughter. People that have met her once and those that were blessed to spend time with her all said the same basic thing. That they felt loved by her. That they were lifted up by her. That she will not be forgotten.
