Success Stories

Anyone who needs a life change or who is looking go to the next level should work with Gretchen. She is the best. I've been around a lot of ``experts`` and they don't hold a candle to her intuition, knowledge, communication and ideas. Best money I've ever invested in my career!!!!

Gretchen is a wonderful business coach and I would recommend her to anyone looking to take their career to the next level. I know that she also does life coaching as well and it's clear from working with her that she can provide insight into personal matters as well. She understands that personal and work life are intertwined.

I'm a business owner and Gretchen's experience in leadership and marketing were very helpful in our sessions. She's a wonderful role model and mentor!

Gretchen was a great resource for me in a recent job transition! She was thoughtful but honest in her coaching while I prepped for phone interviews and intensive all-day in-person interviews. Not only did she prep me for many interviews, she helped me find my strengths and I was able to communicate them in a digestible way to potential employers. Her sessions are worth every penny. Thanks for helping me move forward in my career.

I’ve hired two other coaches. But Gretchen is in a league of her own. She merges personal understanding with business savvy and operates with a smooth, assuring style. The heavy lifting of getting me prepared to grow my business feels more like having a cup of coffee with a good friend. Thank you, Gretchen! Also, Gretchen’s Intake process is very thorough; it really helped me prioritize the areas for immediate attention versus those that wait a little. Rome wasn’t built in a day after all.

Gretchen is a certified ROCK-STAR! As a coach, I find her to immediately create a sacred space that breeds trust and comfort for our sessions and a positive starting point to truly explore. Beyond the powerful questions, comes the answers that are delicately pulled from you, some of which you didn't already recognize were lying dormant. I have had positive experiences and no doubt will connect again. Thanks for amazing experiences in a no-pressure, fun, and respectful environment.

Simply put, Gretchen embodies this innate ability to identify a person's strengths and brings a laser-beam focus to the challenges we face when we are overwhelmed by life. She held a sacred place for me to uncover, discover and discard what is really holding me back from reaching my fullest potential. Her visionary approach inspired me to see the big picture through the muddiness of my fear.

I messed up!

Okay, okay, so I am a little bit behind. I didn’t send out a new year, new you or a happy new year/new decade email. I didn’t tell you to…
