“I'm just so grateful for the work you're doing. For the first time I feel like I have the tools and the confidence to find a great next job, and to say no to opportunities that aren't right for me or my career.”


“I wanted to say THANK YOU for our call, it really helped me find the courage to push forward with fundraising. The PDFs you shared with me have been a HUGE help in putting together our sponsorship ‘Ask’ materials!”


“The work you do to inspire women across the country to fight for what they deserve and recognize their own self-worth is incredible.”

 “I wanted to let you know that the work you do has had a huge impact on my life recently. Thank you so much for all that you do and all that you have built to help women like me!”

“I just wanted to let you know that I listened to your podcast and you have literally spoken to my soul.  You spoke to me about how to value myself and stop making myself smaller.”


“We’re so happy that our whole agency had the opportunity to participate in your encouraging workshop.  We had many ladies write us emails and pull us aside to tell us how much they enjoyed the session and how relevant it was to them.”


“You've helped provide the tools to empower me to know my worth and ask for a raise (which I got in January!).”

“I was recently asked to interview for a new job. After panicking, I purchased the ‘How to Nail the Interview"‘web class. It was so immensely helpful and gave me the confidence to walk in ready to succeed.”


“I learned SO much from all of you and went into my negotiations this time around with confidence and just pulled off an 11k raise!”
