You love serving your clients. Working with them lights you up, energizes your body and feeds your soul. You value honesty, transparency and integrity, and your clients can feel it.
You love what you do so much, you used to do it for free, but now you've finally figured out how to make some money in your business, so that takes some of the pressure off.
Yes, you do what you love, but it's not just about you. It's also about serving your clients at the highest level. It's about spreading your message farther. It's about making a difference, and inspiring others.
You say "Yes" to things you don't want to do and "Sorry, I can't" to things you do. The people you love feel like they are competing with your work.
You can't turn off your "work brain" to relax and spend time with your partner.
If your stress levels aren't already taking a toll on your health, they will soon.
You're too tired and busy to even work in your zone of genius.
You've lost your way.
The people closest to you--your family and your team--are the ones who bear the brunt of your stress. It's not fair to them, and it's not the person you want to be.
You've lost your passion.
You're not even sure you want to be doing what you're doing any more. Or at least, not the way you're currently doing it.
You wish you could bring more of your authentic self to your business, but you just don't know how to bridge the gap between what's actually paying the bills and where you'd like to go.
From the outside, I had it made.
After a decade of trial-and-failure as an entrepreneur, I had finally built a thriving 6-figure business with my wonderful husband around our strengths and passions. We had two beautiful kids, had co-authored an Amazon.com #1 best-selling book, were doing $20k webinars, had a team of people working for us and help around the house to make life easier.
Only, it turns out (as you've probably realized yourself, by now):
Money, acclaim, hired help, and even having a thriving business doing work you love are NOT actually keys to happiness and well-being. (From Anthony Bourdain to Robin Williams, the examples are endless of people who "made it" and are miserable.)
I remember lying in our gorgeous condo in Hawaii feeling exhausted, and depleted. It was when I was on the boat heading out to swim with wild dolphins (a life-long dream) that I said to myself, "Something is wrong, I should be WAY more excited about this than I am."
I didn't realize it then, but my my health, my relationship and most important of all, my connection to myself, were all in critical condition.
It took some brave, vulnerable, scary, (expensive!) and hard decisions...
But slowly, one day at a time, one decision at a time, I managed to steer the oceanliner of my life in a different direction. Now, I am at a place where I feel happier, healthier, more alive, and less stressed than ever before.
The business survived (although I'm not as involved in it anymore).
My marriage evolved dramatically, but I am pleased to say we are still on amicable terms and support one another a best we can.
And, my identity has blossomed in ways I never would have imagined.
What I have learned about myself, the world, and business along the way, has transformed my life forever.
And, now, I am just so thrilled to be able to help people like you, who are where I was, find your path forward with more support, more ease, more elegance, and (hopefully!) a lot less stress.
Is now the time for us to work together?

"I've worked with several top coaches in exclusive coaching programs. What sets Wendy apart from just about every other coach or consultant I've worked with is how attuned she is to finding ways to grow your business without sacrificing your self-care. I've spent a life time pushing myself hard to get the job done, but I can depend on Wendy to consistently question whether my latest business focus is the easiest, most nourishing way to achieve the goals that I've set out for myself. She will invariable help me find a more elegant solution."

"I went into massage twenty years ago because I loved the work, but eventually it turned into a grind.
When I reconnected with Wendy most recently, I got off the phone feeling more excited about my business than I had in the previous five years!
It's always a privilege to have her focus her brain on me and my business. I’ve never met anyone as creative as she is—it’s amazing how she can come up with so many great ideas so quickly.
Thanks to her, I offered (and sold!) my first high-end intensive. Now that she has completely up-leveled my brand (in almost no time at all), I feel more confident than ever.
Every time we talk, her positive, high-power energy rubs off on me and I take it back into my business and my day.
You can’t afford NOT to give Wendy a brief synapsis of your business and just hear her perspective. She can take your business (and life) to a whole new level."
Sheri Lynn Bussey Pain Relief Specialist
"Working with Wendy was a total game-changer for me.
When I met her, I was doing incredible work on a small scale in a little corner of the universe. I was overwhelmed by how to reach more people.
Wendy was a genius at helping me focus on just one small step at a time to grow the impact of my work. There were a million things I could have wasted my time on in the world of branding and marketing, and Wendy knew exactly which ones to point me to.
She saw where I could go as a reality before I even knew it was possible. I'm super grateful to her for helping me grow my business and my life."

But in Ways You're Actually EXCITED About Doing Again
A seemingly minor change in direction today can lead you to a significantly different place in the future.
This is a one-day intensive + a follow-up call where we dive in and look at your business and life from a bird's eye view. We assess what's working, what's not, and what you'd like to shift.
You'll walk away from this day reconnected to where the sparks of joy are in your life, with clarity on what directon you want to move in, a general plan for how to get there, and clear, practical, actionable next-steps to take to begin moving in that direction.
This is a life- and business-changing program. We start out with a Pivot Point session and then I will dive in deep over the next three weeks to not only coach you personally and professionally, but actually help you implement the changes you need to make in your business and your life.
Need new copy? Consider it done.
Ready to finally launch a webinar under a new brand? I'm on it.
Want to keep your commitment to take three days off a week? I'm here to keep you accountable.
Business develops. Life changes. What makes you happy today isn't going to be enough tomorrow.
Once we shift the direction you are moving in, it isn't enough to just keep going in that direction. You need to consistently re-evaluate where you are compared to where you want to be.
These are the 3 days we will spend diving in together on a quarterly basis to stay abreast of new developments in your circumstances and to develop and implement new strategies for how to integrate these changes in a way that keeps you feeling happy, alive, and enthusiastic.

"Wendy reads people exceptionally well and she quickly zeroed in on my learning and working styles, and most importantly, my fears. Without her help I never would have had the courage to offer new, higher-value, higher-priced services beyond anything I ever dreamed I could offer.
I’ve made more progress in my business in the short time I’ve worked with her than in the prior 10 years.
When I started working with Wendy I had nearly 40,000 Youtube followers, but I was barely making $200 a month from my business. Wendy helped me overhaul my 3 outdated websites and develop a single brand that truly reflects who I am. Not only did she bring me into the 21st century, she also helped me land my first VIP client who flew in from across the country to work with me."
Cheryl Brunette Knitting Teacher
"Wendy is different from any other coach I've ever talked to because she doesn't just tell you what to do, she's right there in it with you. Other coaches said, 'You should try x,' whereas Wendy would say, 'We can totally do x!'
She won't work with you unless she absolutely believes in you, and if she believes in you, then you really feel like, 'With Wendy's help, I actually CAN do this!'
I am telling all of my friends to work with Wendy, so if you're on the fence, I'll tell you, too: do it! You can't go wrong with her on your side."
Rose "Slam!" Johnson Nonprofit Program Manager
"Wendy is one of the few people I know whose internal compass orients around freedom, happiness and joy, rather than accumulating wealth, accolades or social status.
I am surrounded by people who have reached a high level of success in their fields, but Wendy is different.
Not only is she my go-to person for marketing strategy and support (because she understands what I'm trying to say better than I can often say it myself). She gets me, and is one of the people I come back to again and again when I need perspective on what I'm going through in life or business."
