I think the workshop was very helpful in eliciting and making my personal and business goals specific and measurable.

What an eye-opener! Although I was aware of the things I needed to work on, this pushed me to confront them directly and take active steps toward completing my goals. Thanks for the support and encouragement.

Theresa makes you focus on what you want and how you are going to get it. It sounds so simple, and at first I was skeptical of coaching. I’m not a touchy-feely person. The first workshop was a powerful learning experience for me. It opened my eyes to how much I was distracted from my goals and priorities by the everyday fires that ignited my desk. Now, I’m finding ways to keep the fires to a minimum and concentrate on the activities that will be most beneficial to my performance.

It’s great to call a timeout in your busy life to see where you are at now and where you want to go next.

I expanded my mailing areas and with that I was like, ‘How am I going to manage?’ Theresa helped me put systems into place on how to maximize my assistant to be more of a support, to get more done and be more efficient. Theresa took a birds-eye view operationally of my business and helped me put some things into place. I had several ‘a-ha’ moments.

The Success Trek model is dynamic. The CEO is quick to shift align bases on the synergy of the participants. This yields itself to a champion outcome!

Thank you so much! I know that it takes a lot of behind the scenes work to make these staff retreats run smoothly. Please know that we are grateful. Theresa, I was fascinated watching your ability to extract information while also making everyone feel validated and encouraged. That’s an art and you’re a pro! Thank you so much.
