Hi Nancy!

I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know I got that big job we spoke about at our last session (yippee!). I used many of the techniques you coached me on and they really helped me to be more confident and professional.

Thank you for everything you do, I’m so grateful to have you as my coach.

Looking forward to our next session. Have a great week!

Six months ago I hired Nancy to be my business coach. Truly, one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am so happy with Nancy and her coaching – thank you, Nancy! Nancy has helped me focus, sharpen my decision-making skills and reduce the time it takes for me to make important decisions and commitments. My business expansion plans are well under way and I am working at an accelerated pace to ensure my business has everything it needs to succeed at a new level.

...the best money I ever spent!

Darci Hether
Principal Owner / Designer, Darci Hether, New York

Without Nancy's coaching and support, I wouldn't have just closed on two new clients, and who fit my target, with cheques in hand, in one week. Because of her, I walked into those client consultations confident and prepared they would be both excited and relieved to be working with me – a genuine expert who could help them with what they were struggling with.

Giving a shout out to Nancy Ganzekaufer – if you have not scheduled a one-on-one coaching session with Nancy, you are not giving yourself the treatment you deserve. Nancy is incredibly insightful and a terrific listener. I am so happy with the coaching she has provided me. Nancy, You Rock!!

Barbara D’Aquino
Transformation Business Coach

With Nancy’s guidance and encouragement, I have grown to be more assertive. I recognize my abilities and value more readily. I am grateful for how far I’ve come and how far I will go in my bright future. Thank you, very helpful knowing I’m not alone.

I just need to tip my hat to Nancy Ganzekaufer once more. Every time I have a meeting with her, I come away with something tangible that I can action straight away and make my business better. Today, I was able to make a clear decision to stop a part of my service which I realized just doesn't make business sense - not profitable enough, sucking up a ton of my time, causing me unnecessary stress, and preventing me from focusing on and making other parts of my business more profitable (thanks, Nancy!).

I have been working with Nancy for about 6 months. Nancy is a very caring individual that truly want me to succeed. I always feel “recharged” after my sessions with Nancy. She never ceases to amaze me with her energy and more importantly her knowledge on how to promote myself and my business. I would highly recommend having Nancy as your business coach!

Nancy really helps me crystallize my goals and vision for my business and
encourages me to challenge myself. I just looked at the goals I set when I
started with Nancy 5 months ago. I’ve already tripled my quarterly goal
and I’m three quarters of the way to my annual goal. Time to reset some
goals!I love Nancy’s straightforward style, the business experience she brings
from her life in finance and her perspective as someone who has been in
the design world for many years and understands our unique business.
It’s only a pleasure to work with Nancy and I can certainly say my business
has reaped the rewards.
