Sunny Kobe Cook began her career as a secretary and gained popularity with the company she founded in 1991, Sleep Country USA. She served both as CEO and Company spokesperson in both radio and television advertisements for many years. During that time, she was named Inc. Magazine's Northwest Woman Entrepreneur of the Year along with numerous other business and corporate good citizen awards. She was featured on the cover of Washington CEO magazine when her company was the first retailer to ever be recognized as "Best Place to Work."

Selling her retail store chain in February, 2000 gave her the opportunity to realize a lifelong dream. Sunny's book, "COMMON THINGS UNCOMMON WAYS" is now available in stores everywhere. In these pages and through the many speeches she makes, she shares with other business people proven ways to improve any business through increased focus on the Customer Experience, Employee Recognition and Motivation.
