Before working with Susanna, I had a small, part-time coaching practice seeing 2 to 3 clients a month. I loved what I was doing and knew I was making a real difference in people’s lives. And I was proud of what I had accomplished on my own to build my practice.
But I was making very little money so there was no way I could leave my full-time job. I was at the limit of what I could do by myself. Being mired in the unknown of how to grow my business had me feeling confused and frustrated. And yet I didn’t know where to turn. Honestly, it was heartbreaking for me.
I had actually done a lot of inner work to be happy with the limited level of success I was experiencing. But still, I knew I yearned for more. I realized that if I was going to expand my business, I would need help because even thinking about how to do it was a struggle.
Choosing to invest in my business through working with Susanna was like stepping across a big threshold. In less than 3 months, I took the guidance, structure, and strategies I learned and I defined my niche (helping coaches transform their brilliance into a signature program), created my first 6-month private coaching program, and easily enrolled my first platinum clients!
And my fee was over 5 times what I was making previously!
My clients are overjoyed with the incredible results they’re getting. One promptly enrolled 2 new clients into her freshly-minted signature program after not having gotten new clients in 6 months. I’m now enrolling my first group program in my new niche. All of this feels beyond amazing and truly life-changing! The clarity and confidence that has come out of this has been absolutely incredible.
A few short months ago I couldn’t even have imagined being in this place and now it feels so easy and natural. I went from hoping with fingers crossed that one day I could quit my job to knowing that I will actually need to quit it fairly soon.
I now know in my heart of hearts that, yes, I can do this, I can build the thriving business I desire while empowering my clients in a far bigger way than I was previously doing. I have no doubt whatsoever.
That confidence is priceless. It’s an enormous shift in my sense of what’s possible and I know I would not at all have been able to do this on my own, let alone this quickly. It’s a dream come true!
Prior to coaching with you, I was unfocused in my business and in the dark on how to proceed. I knew I was good at what I did but I didn’t know how to structure it into a business. It was like getting in a car yet having no idea where I was going.
So I was jumping from one program to the next, hoping something would help yet feeling completely lost and increasingly frustrated. I had 2 or 3 hourly clients each month and a small class I was teaching. All told, I was making maybe $500 a month.
Fast-forward a few months and I’ve already had 1 VIP day client, done a small group VIP day, and am currently working with my first 6-month platinum client. I’ve made way more in one day working with one client than it used to take me all month to make with all my clients.
You’ve helped me get solidly grounded in the value of my work in a way I never was before. That’s allowed me to create two fabulous programs for my clients at investment levels that reflect that value. As a result, I’m so much more confident in the enrolling process and in owning my fees because I’m standing strong in the transformation I deliver.
I’m especially grateful to have had your guidance in unfolding my business in a feminine way, creating it from the inside out. This has been very important for me and you always modeled the feminine very authentically. It felt like you were simply revealing what’s next in the journey of building my business and the whole unfolding process simply pulled me forward.
You made the process fun and collaborative, giving me lots of guidance, support, permission, and allowing. I always felt so seen by you, cared about, and respected. Looking back on how far I’ve come in such a short time, I feel very proud, excited, and in awe with the successes I’ve had.
I’m so grateful that you came into my life exactly when I was most lost and needing a map and a guide. Anyone who wants to build their business from the inside out, in a feminine way, and who wants it to be a profound personal and business experience, should hire you.

The new way you taught me to have enrolling conversations has absolutely revolutionized how I interact with clients. Even though I’ve been in business for 25 successful years, my number one challenge has always been price resistance on the part of potential clients. Through implementing what you taught me, my services have instantly become “more than reasonable” in their eyes.
In fact, I just easily closed one client who previously wanted my services for free, then was waffling about the price. I now have several more estimates to compile and a returning client who represents a huge amount of lucrative work – all from approaching the selling conversation differently.
The best part is that I feel really confident having learned this new way of interacting, selling, co-creating, and connecting with my clients. Using this simple approach has catapulted my business confidence far beyond where I ever dreamed it could go. To be honest, I’m still sort of stunned at how much this has changed my world!
