Honoring GSFE women entreprenuers for their outstanding contributions, the following are the recipients of the World Kindness Award:


Sandie Fuenty


Sales Director of Mary Kay Inc., Director of the GSFE Lake Elsinore/Murrieta/Wildomar chapter


Sandie started her career with Mary Kay over 27 years ago, while working a Corporate job and running the family’s heating and air conditioning company. The priorities of Mary Kay Ash brought her into the company – faith first, family second, career third – and that the company believed in treating everyone by the Golden Rule.  This atmosphere was quite different than corporate America.  On August 1, 2020 (which happened to be her 49th wedding anniversary) she became an Independent Sales Director with Mary Kay (top 2% of the company) with the help of her unit of 33 hand-picked ladies.  They went on to qualify for the 2021 Chevy Malibu on September 1, 2020.  What is amazing is that this was during the Pandemic when so many companies were floundering.  Sandie says she owes it all to taking God as her partner in this business and grabbing on to the new virtual way of doing business.  Next goal is to reach Fabulous 50’s with 50 unit members.



Sandie has been with NAFE and the transition to GSFE for over 4 years.  Little did she know how this would open so many doors.  She learned to SHOW UP and ASK and helped reawaken her business.  Through Robbie’s mentoring she started writing for a local paper, wrote a chapter for an upcoming book, and is working on her own manuscript.  She loves facilitating the monthly meetings, whether in person or Zoom, and helping other women broaden their sphere of influence.

She has been a Board Member on the Dresses and Dreams Project for several years and still very active in the organization, and is Secretary of the VeriDivas. She has been presented wiyh many awards signed by two Presidents, is an Ambassador and speaker representing the Mary Kay Charitable Foundation focusing on women’s cancers and domestic violence, and has received Recognition Certificates from Senators, Congress, and local Charities and Organizations.


Sandie is the recipient of the Gold Medal Presidential World Kindness Day award.

Reanna Ritter


Financial Controller, Business Owner


Reanna was born and raised in beautiful South Lake Tahoe and she was the youngest of six siblings. Reanna saw education as the way out. Schools in Tahoe, “The Gem of the Sierras”, taught students to be environmentally focused. She found that when you value and care for your resources all aspects of your life tend to be better. She values people who adapt well to change, are environmentally conscious, who have an attitude of gratitude and who value personal and professional growth.

Growing up, Reanna worked with her father in a small carpet cleaning business and she learned that service, quality, and cash flow will make or break a business. He stressed the importance of being responsive, professional, and maintaining an excellent reputation.

Even though attending college was discouraged by her family as a waste of money, she disagreed and found a way to go, earning a bachelor's degree in Accounting in 2012, and a master's degree in Business in 2017. Within 2 years she was promoted to Financial Controller and progressed in corporate accounting for midsize restaurant chains for the next 4 years. Through that experience she saw a need for business process change. Reanna said "So many companies are still on paper, for example. Their red tape, resistance to change and lack of technology adoption makes progress slow. Most of the head-aches business owners endure can be eliminated through investment in technology and investment in their people".

She started her business to help her clients recognize opportunities in providing excellent customer and employee experiences. Upholding these values leads to higher profits long term.

Reanna is the recipient of the Presidential World Kindness Day Service Award.

Sandie Fuenty, the director, says "Her heart is huge. There were several times where she would reach out to me when she knew I wasn't feeling up to par, and times I would reach out to her when I could see her inner smile was missing.  Words to describe here are:  steadfast, dependable, loving, supportive, a captivating smile that embraces everyone nearby".  She also volunteers her time with other community groups. This year has been a time of finding herself and testing her strength, and all we can say is, SHE WILL SURVIVE.

Robbie Motter:


Founder / CEO, Entrepreneur, Author, Radio Host, Certified National Speaker


The history of female entrepreneurs dates back many centuries ago. Unfortunately, you probably didn’t hear about any of them in your history text books. However, these female business owners were pioneers in their time and made it possible for other women to follow in their footsteps. One such pioneer is Robbie Motter. Early in her career in Corporate America she saw women who where not supporting each other. This did not sit well with Robbie. On her life long quest to help other female entrepreneurs come together she has helped create two of the largest female entrepreneur groups in America and now in the world.


Robbie’s motto is “Just show up!”

She has spent almost four decades volunteering her time to empower, inspire, educate and connect women so they can become successful entrepreneurs and having them soar to great heights even more than they imagined. This is why Robbie Motter is the recipient of the President’s Gold Medal of Honor for a lifelong commitment to female entrepreneurs. The kindness Robbie gives to each one of her gals is the strength for them to strive and achieve greatness.
