Before the Employee to Entrepreneur Transition System created by Business Accelerated (Ellen Harris), I did not have a clear consistent plan for my business. I felt overwhelmed, scattered and found myself traveling to a destination without a map to follow; I just waited around for the right clients or opportunities to manifest themselves. Then along came Ellen Harris. By following Ellens clear steps outlined in her program, I effortlessly signed on 3 new clients within my first month of the 120-day program! I continue to incorporate Ellens invaluable advice as I grow my private practice. Those initial conversations about session fees have become so much less painful as a result of implementing strategies Ellen has taught. During our coaching calls, Ellen instilled a confidence in me. As a result, I have almost quadrupled my hourly rate! I resonated with Ellens energy right from the start. I felt her genuine essence come through authentically and knew instantly without a doubt what she offered was exactly what I needed. It feels so much more natural to me to have a mentor I feel so aligned with in this way. Working with Ellen has completely enhanced all facets of my life both personally and professionally. And for this I feel so GRATEFUL to have found Ellen and Business Accelerated!Sep 23, 2015
When I met Ellen, I had been thinking about a big project and couldnt envision how Id make it happen. One of the first things I noticed was her voice- calm, measured. Her questions- insightful and empathetic. Through Business Accelerated, Ellen provided a framework for my project, one I can reuse for any other project going forward. Her marketing expertise and her IT knowledge have been invaluable. As I completed smaller projects that are part of the bigger vision, Ellen continued to demonstrate commitment to our work through attentiveness, responsiveness and generosity well beyond my expectations. Thank you, Ellen! - Judy G.Sep 16, 2015
Working with Ellen is not only fun but filled with practical information that can be implemented immediately. Sucess follows quickly and as expected. She provides timely information in a manner that is understandable and easy to do. I enjoy working with Ellen because she gives me the confidence I need to be successful, in addition to the necessary tools. I am further along because of her assistance in helping know what needs to be done and when. You can receive the results you desire by working with Ellen. I especially like that she is always upbeat and encouraging when I get frustrated. She is great to work with. Thank you Ellen for giving me the tools I need to succeed.Jan 14, 2015Ellen J.'s reply
