What results have you seen since working with Stephanie?

I have become far more financially aware and look a lot deeper into what it is I want from the business and how I intend to get it there.

There has been a lot of focus on nailing down who my specific target market is and working on all the different ways I can attract them, which is already leading to a healthier bottom line. Plus I’m learning how to maximise my profits in so many different ways.

I have definitely become more focused and more accountable when it comes to continuing to develop my business month after month.  Working with Stephanie has helped me to “fall in love” with my business again.

What do you think about the support and encouragement you receive from Stephanie?

I get so much support from Steph.  She is so knowledgeable and personable and nothing is too much trouble.  She always offers masses of advice, support and encouragement, which helps to ensure that I implement everything I set out to.

It’s so good working with someone who really has an understanding of what you are going through when trying to grow a business.

What benefits do you get from working one-to-one with Stephanie?

It’s great to have someone who inspires and supports you and invaluableto  have someone to bounce ideas off.  The motivation and advice I receive is priceless and always generates enthusiasm to keep my business moving forward month on month.

The meetings are great at holding your feet to the fire and making you accountable for what you need to implement each month.

What would you say to someone else thinking of working with Stephanie?

Go for it!  Having on hand support and advice to help you develop yourself and your business is invaluable.

Steph will keep you accountable, help you to drive your business forward and you will get a fantastic return on your investment.
