Dear Joel & Sue–
Thank you SO much for the consultation – I was so inspired and energized to implement your ideas about developing my business that I wanted to push aside all my "work" and get right to it! :-)
Your generosity and insights were astounding, and I am truly honored to have connected with the both of you – such kind, warm, giving, and funny souls!
I can't believe how many NOTES I took during that call and how many "I never thought of that before" moments I had!
It can often feel like a lonely road running your own business (and especially so when it's virtual); I'm thrilled to have found others on this path who can help me find my way!
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
All the best,
"You both are an inspiration and my path become more crystal clear and grounded to me."

"Thank you for talking with me today. It was the best 30 minutes I've had with a business coach!
"The questionnaire you sent me prior to the call, really made me think about how I'm marketing my business. I always heard that you should have a niche, but I really didn't understand the value until you explained the importance of setting yourself apart from others.
"I can't wait to make the changes you suggested and watch my client base grow!"

"After listening to Sue & Joel's feedback about my site I was amazed at what I got from the consultation. They helped me clarify who my target market was and to make that obvious on my website. Making the changes they suggested will help me connect with the right people."
A follow-up comment from Collette: "A big thank you to you and your husband. After that phone call is really when my business has turned around."
"You listened to not only what I wasn't saying, you were also listening to what I was saying, defining the relationship and feeding it back to me into a one-sentence concise message that I can start using in my business.
"What we were able to accomplish in 10 minutes is more than any coach has ever accomplished with me in the past. Helping me come up with one sentence that concisely describes what it is I do is what I've been searching for, for years. No one has taken the time to really listen to what it was I was trying to say. You didnít cut me off with your own ideas, and you didn't tell me that my homework was to figure it out alone for our next call.
"You 'got' me, you understood on a deep level the way I think, you respected the way I process information. You gave me the space, time, and respect I needed to take everything out of my head into words and turn it into the beginnings of my mission statement.
"Helping me with this huge missing piece in my business and in my marketing has taken an enormous weight off my shoulders. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

"Sue & Joel are fantastic coaches.
"I don't know how far behind I would be at this point without their advice and guidance. I look forward to our calls! They include you in the process of planning and organizing to get your business up and running. They guide you in finding & deciding on your niche; they offer their experience as to what are the first things that are helpful to focus on (and what can wait a bit); and last, but far from least, they provide inspiration to stay motivated and positive! The latter played a very important role for me when I was feeling overwhelmed and worried that I wasn't going to get any clients.
"Sue & Joel have a great sense of humor and are simply "good people"! They have a gracious, sharing philosophy on work ethics and customer support, and do it all while focusing on running a business like a business.
"I'm a very lucky new entrepreneur to have found such awesome job coaches!"
