Dr. Amy B.

Amy shares how our work together led her to clarity about the business model, the action plan to transition her business, and guidance and a "thought partner" as she implemented the changes and experienced the resistance, second-guessing, and fear that comes with making this type of change to a business model.


Maria BT

Maria shares how working with Melisa helped her uncover the "world of possibilities" for her business, the potential she never realized was available to her.

She had been unknowningly replicating her past experiences into her business, and limiting her income and flexibility as a result.

Maria shares how her work with Melisa provided the systems, the mindset and the insight to make running her business easy and to break through the ceilings she'd hit in her business.

You can hear more of Maria's story in Episode 082 of the Grow Your Independent Consulting Business podcast.
