This brought tears to my eyes and made my aching feet worthwhile. I love IDS Long Island chapter will always be my home base.

“I want to write this review on behalf of Nancy Ganzekaufer because she truly went above & beyond. Our MC canceled at the last minute & Nancy graciously stepped in to MC our event. WOW! Her energy & enthusiasm was inspirational. She engaged the audience with class & such an upbeat vibe, she truly made our event a huge success. Next year she will not be our back up instead she will be our only choice to MC again. Thank you so much Nancy! You are amazing!!!”

Nancy Ganzekaufer is one of the most dedicated business coaches I have met. Her enthusiasm for my business and my success is always clear and genuine. What I’ve love most is her ability to help me brainstorm ideas and new ways of both solving problems as well as creating opportunities for growth and profit. In the 3 years I have worked with her, I have come to have the utmost respect for her and am always grateful I have her in my corner as a business coach.

Blog excerpt: I’m going to introduce you to someone who’s changed my professional understanding of my business goals, opportunities, and clientele in the little more than the year that I’ve known her.

Who is she you may ask and what does she have to do with renderings, design, and quite possibly my even more narrowed specialty of Chief Architect and Home Designer training? My colleague, mentor, and COACH is Nancy Ganzekaufer, Business Coach to Interior Designers.

So here’s the truth, my business wouldn’t be where it is today without Nancy’s guiding hand and accountability.

Prior to hiring Nancy I was charging almost 50% less than what I am now. I’d prided myself on helping my clients and rationalized that their gratitude was an equatable difference in my less than adequate original rate.

Now, my CPA even noticed that my profit had more than doubled what it was a year ago. Not only that, but I’m trusting my instincts more. So in all honestly if you’re an Interior Designer and you’re looking to grow your brand, learn more about yourself, and all-in-all just become more confident as a person, don’t hesitate to hire Nancy.

Hey Nancy! I could almost cry I am so happy. I know this totally sounds gimmicky but I truly just closed the largest project of my career thus far. I have you and God to thank!

I got together a whole marketing packet even ordered gold paper clips. I knew they had the money to afford me, but they are very frugal people. So, I didn’t know if they would bite the bullet and do it… but they want to hire me for four rooms and their massive entryway. It’s a brand new home probably ($3 million) right on the water in the most affluent area of town.

So many of the points you made have really resonated with me. I’m doing those classes now from you too that have been tremendously helpful. So grateful for you!

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 highly recommend having Nancy speak at your next event, you won’t be disappointed. Not only was the topic of the Keynote relevant and on point, but Nancy is an engaging speaker.  We only wish we had more time to learn from her.

Just finished up a coaching call with Nancy and am ready to rock now. Nancy is so easy to talk with and has great ideas, real and actionable on how to get unstuck and rolling in the right direction. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Sometimes you just need someone to listen and strategize with and you did just that – just like a momma bear. Thank you!!

Sarah Allen DesignI’ve been meeting with Nancy for only a few months and my confidence, business and bank account has grown tremendously. I now have peace of mind, that I have support from a coach when that big project proposal comes along, or I want to introduce a whole new branch to my business. Nancy encourages me to take these big ideas, stay focused and turn them into reality! Needless to say, I highly recommend hiring Nancy as your Business Coach.

Alison Solar, K&B Design CoachI think, no I KNOW, that Nancy is the most knowledgeable, dedicated and hard working business person/coach I know. Working with her changed my life. Literally. I discovered my new passion and she helped guide me in the right direction. I am still working on the list we discussed.

The guidance and resources that Nancy provides is immense. I know my numbers better than I ever have before which gives me peace of mind and confidence. I can’t thank Nancy enough for all the guidance and support at one of the lowest times in my life. I am always sharing with others the wonders of Nancy!

Nancy Ganzekaufer testimonial from Michèle ComissotI want to give you very good news of my work! About 3 months ago, clients suddenly started to get in touch with me and sign with me! It all came from one client who referred me to an entrepreneurs association. Currently, I have 4 projects ongoing : 3 houses and 1 developer who asked me to design 4 show apartments in one of his developments. It became very hectic before I left on vacations mid-July!! And I had to put on hold 3 other projects!… I hired an assistant for the drawings on computer. It’s the first time since I’m in Kenya that I come back from holidays with loads of work waiting for me! It feels so good!

So I wanted to thank you for the help and assistance you gave me, it helped me a lot in different ways and aspects of my work. I wish you all the best in your new location and life.

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.

So, I’m in my third month with Nancy by my side. Implementing her processes has made all the difference…organization, innovation and confidence!

“Step by Step Through Design Process,” located in her Members Only site, has been a game changer. I personalized it a bit and landed an awesome project because the clients thought it was so uniquely detailed. They felt like they would be well taken care of, which was music to my ears.

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!

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.

Designers! I had the best hour-long coaching session with Nancy today! This was my first session with her and already it has radically changed the way I am thinking about my business. I had so many ah-hah! moments. I have been stuck in neutral with my business the last year and I finally feel like I have clarity and some actionable steps for the next phase. Nancy, I am so grateful!

Working with Nancy has been the best business decision I have made this past year! Her clear, confident and ‘it-is-what-it-is’ method is fabulous. Nancy is always straight to the point and is a completely no-nonsense teacher. Her D.E.S.I.R.E formula is on point and implementing ideas like the Welcome Packet and the Niche is Rich method of defining ideal clients has helped me tremendously. As I continue to learn from her, I highly recommend Nancy to anyone looking to grow their business and thrive!
