"Cindy is a very effective coach and group leader. Her approach is marked by an ability to listen, a genuine interest in helping, a lot of compassion and support, and a focus on producing results. Whenever I asked Cindy a question regarding a dilemma I was facing, she was able to demonstrate piercing insight that allowed me to take meaningful action to make situations in my life better, and my life overall less stressful and more enjoyable. I was always left empowered and energized after talking to Cindy during our conference calls. I think Cindy is an outstanding coach.

In our work together, Cindy has helped me to see where and what was holding me back in my life and therefore in my business. She assisted me in creating a pathway to my goals and success. In the few months I have been working with Cindy, I am seeing my business and my life move in the direction I have long desired. I feel Cindy has helped me to become a more powerful, effective, and productive leader in my business and in my life."

"I met Cindy earlier this year at a networking event. After we spoke it was clear why she is a successful coach and motivational speaker. As a result of our conversation, I asked if she would speak to a women’s networking group that I belong to and she kindly agreed. Cindy spoke about creating confidence and delivered a message that was empowering, uplifting and filled with helpful suggestions. It couldn’t have been more appropriate for a group of women in job transition. The feedback was extremely positive. I would happily recommend Cindy and her services to any potential clients!"
