What hesitations did you have about working with Valerie?
My biggest hesitation was that I’d never really worked with a business coach before, so I had no idea what to expect. It made me a little nervous to go into something that I felt unprepared for, because my type A personality really likes to avoid that feeling ūüôā I was also hesitant about taking a closer look at my business with just one other person because it feels like such a vulnerable kind of conversation, especially since my business isn’t established.

What specific changes have you noticed since you started working together?
I’ve noticed that my perspective on what I need emotionally has definitely changed. Talking with you about what I really want from my business and what parts of my life need to change in order to make that happen helped my get clear on what I need to do to make positive changes for myself and my business.

How else have you benefited from your work together?
It’s really great to have an outside perspective on my business hangups – both mental and practical. There’s something about talking out loud to another person that helps you get to the core of what’s holding you back.

What did you like best about working with Valerie?
Valerie’s a great listener and you have really practical, realistic advice. I was afraid a coach would ask more of me than I was able to give at this time in my life, but I always felt that the advice Valerie had for me was attainable, which was exciting.

Would you recommend Valerie and her services? If so, why and to whom?
Absolutely! I think you would be perfect for other creative entrepreneurs who have a lot of hangups about putting themselves out there and feeling vulnerable because these creative endeavors feel so personal.

What’s the most important thing people should know about working with Valerie?
I think the most important thing people should know is that Valerie is very easy to talk to and they shouldn’t be intimidated by this process at all. Working with Valerie will definitely help them get to a place where they aren’t holding themselves back from the progress they should be making. They’ll also get actionable advice on incremental steps they can take to improve their business.
