Business Coaches
Need a dose of clarity?  Want to understand better what you offer and what opportunities you have?  As a former corporate lawyer turned coach, I get clients to define their intended outcome and help them structure an effective way to work towards their goals.  I’ve helped budding entrepreneurs and others develop their strategy, identify what they offer and enhance their ability to communicate with colleagues and customers through tailored coaching and use of targeted tools.  It’s so much fun to see my clients get less overwhelmed and get greater clarity about their opportunities and I’d love to help you as well.  Please contact me to set up a time to talk about what you need and how I can help.
