I dont need a career, or life coach I know my direction. When a 2.5 year, full-time contract came to an end a coworker suggested that I might find it helpful to see a friend of hers whom had a coaching and consultancy business (yielding an eye roll from me). As a bit of a favor, I contacted Deb. I have always been laser-focused with my career. I am often the go-to caregiver, and document-person in my family. I pride myself in being able to keep it all together while exceeding goals and expectations. I was blindsided when my first meeting with Deb was a complete catharsis. She helped me slow down, refine my pitch, and build on my strengths as they applied to some of the new skill sets I had acquired, and would be offering as I set out to build my business again. During the couple of months we worked together, Deb was very detailed with our agreed upon goals from meeting-to-meeting. She often followed up between meetings to help me stay on track, and provided subtle but effective encouragement (remember I didnt need a coach). An unexpected bonus was that Deb also happens to be very connected and opened a few key doors for me by making introductions. If you are skeptical about engaging with a coach, Deb will amaze you. Youll wish you had met her ten years earlier. I have a feeling she is a unique coach. I know that I will be engaging with Deb again. -- Cindy Davis

Hannah's title of "mindfulness (genius)" could not be more accurate. Her experience consulting for fortune 500 companies, running numerous large and small businesses herself, and being a master of the mind and body allowed her to guide our startup out of "turbulent waters" and get wholeness in our business! Hannah not only helped our business find the right balance and strategy it needed to move forward productively, but she also helped us develop programs to make sure our employees are getting the wholeness they need too!
There were many life events this year. I got a new house and rented a unit, I got married, I moved out of state for another job, etc.. Needless to say i was overwhelmed from tax perspective, and I tried to do tax return myself. Tentatively it showed tax refund of $2000, but i wasn't sure if that was all i could get. I consulted with Sean Jeon and after having prepared the return with some numbers i provided him, he showed how I could get additional refund. The new refund figure was $3500. There were some deductions I would have never thought of which he showed that i could take leading to this saving. Also he showed me how I can file for different states. He also showed how I should approach the next tax year, and plan my finances around it and gave me some good strategies to take going forward. I will go back to him in the next year!

Scope of services include: consulting and performance improvement. Organizations today are operating in a fundamentally changed environment, due to regulatory and competitive changes, ever-mounting pressures from financial markets, regulatory agencies, boards of directors, and senior management to provide data faster and more accurately, cut costs, drive profitability, and make financial reports more transparent face our clients. Operational improvement services can help your company to significantly improve its value by emphasizing quality, while shifting the focus from tactical to strategic. The quality based methodologies utilized focus on the people, processes and technology, to measurably improve core operational metrics, as defined by senior management (e.g., reducing days to close, increasing budgeting and forecasting effectiveness, and reducing costs). Your organization can move to improved practices, enhancing its value to internal and external customers. Business process re-engineering (BPR): We can analyze your current processes, identify weaknesses, and develop appropriate solutions for planning, budgeting and forecasting, identifying where value is added.

If you have an office, you need to at least think about what you would do if the place burned down.
