“The salary is 10K more than I asked for…. I’ve been trying to get something like this for 5+ years.”

Amy Sowder, testimonial shot.png

 “THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP! I just got a staff editor job offer! The salary is $10,000 more than what I asked for, plus all the health-401k benefits! I’ve been trying to get something like this for 5+ years. I’m sure the confidence I gained from our sessions showed in the interviews. And I’ve been getting a lot more freelance work in the meantime too. Hustling, pitching more, and thinking outside the usual box. Maybe my cleaned-up resume that you edited helped too. You should know that your work is effective and changing my life for the better!”

AMY SOWDER, FOOD AND FITNESS WRITER/EDITOR

“Emily gets it!”

"Emily gets it! It’s always easier when the person you’re working with fully gets the vision and objective behind the project. She helped the team a lot with organizing our ideas. She asked really smart questions that made us think of answers and points of view that we hadn’t thought of before. Along with being creative, she has a very good business acumen which made her feedback even more valuable."

HISHAM EL BASSIOUNI, CO-FOUNDER HANEK 

 
 

“Your hard-won insights stick, long after your formal work together ends. ”

Ryan Rose Cherecwich Circle.png

“Emily listened and empathized, never failing to remind me that many of my supposed shortcomings could be reframed as strengths, and that many of my strengths lay not just in my professional accolades but in my unique personality traits–traits that differentiate me from others in my field.

Emily provided me with thoughtful assignments that allowed me to come to a variety of realizations that I could not have reached without the journey she outlined for me, and that helped to build my confidence further. Emily continues to support my growth and confidence as an expert in my niche, and I consider her ongoing help and feedback invaluable. 

I highly recommend working with Emily, especially if you are a self-identified polymath who is looking to blaze a new trail and not follow a well-worn path; and if you want to work with someone who will not give you shortcuts, but instead provide you with opportunities to do your own meaningful homework in a way that will make your hard-won insights stick, long after your formal work together ends.”

"During our sessions, we were able to create a more focused voice and vision for my business. Your guidance helped me organize my business goals and make them less intimidating, and the copy you wrote is succinct, with just enough character and familiarity to sound warm and genuine. Thank you so much!"

"What a difference working with Emily has made! I had hit a major wall and was feeling very stuck and unmotivated to move things along with my new business. Having Emily's support and weekly accountability has been essential for me to get the ball rolling. I leave every call with a renewed sense of purpose. She has become a trusted friend and invaluable resource."

"I hired Emily to help me draft the seemingly disparate parts of my personal and professional life into a cohesive narrative for my website. Emily is a very talented big picture thinker. She helped me identify and clearly communicate the most important components of doing what I love."

 “She guided me through a path of questions to help really uncover what was trapped behind the weeds.”

Katy Rose Bye Circle.jpg

“I came to Emily in a state of overwhelm about my business, knowing there WAS a way out, but not being able to see it! I was struggling to get out of my own head: to find clarity amidst all the conflicting advice I’d had around creating an 'umbrella' term for my business to fall under. Through her reflective approach, she guided me through a path of questions to help really uncover what was trapped behind the weeds, so to speak.

Emily was clear and practical, but also empathized with my issues and was able to balance the listening role with suggestions and reflecting back some of the things I’d said but not noticed. Once we discussed some of the key themes Emily pointed out to me, I felt much more able to re-work my copy and answer some of the other ‘businessy’ questions I’d been struggling with, such as what my ideal client really wanted.

Thanks to her mix of questions to get me thinking, her listening, and her giving me space to consider an answer, I now feel able to classify my role with a title, and I’m better to explain my services and why I’m qualified and passionate about offering them.”

"Just hearing you reflect back to me what I've been saying to you gives me courage. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This was the best money I've spent on myself in a long time."

“I've been able to fully own and go after my seemingly ‘larger-than-life’ dreams”

Indira Circle Testimonial .png

"I've been able to fully own and go after my seemingly ‘larger-than-life’ dreams, which is liberating and healing, to say the least. I felt connected to Emily straight away. She had so many interesting perspectives to share and always seemed to ask the right questions. I felt that she really understood and listened to me I would highly recommend Emily as a coach."

INDIRA JEREZ BIMONT, CEO, THE INNERTIA PROJECT

“I am way less worried, stressed out, and overwhelmed.”

Christa Circle 2.png

“Emily has a way of listening... not just hearing but really listening... and then distilling the information down in the most helpful and articulate way to really get to the heart of the matter. I would ramble on about something, and Emily was able to pull out the really important pieces so I could work through them and not get dragged down by all the other stuff. She asked me questions that got to the heart of the matter, rather than focusing on the surface nonsense that I thought was the problem, and I left our sessions knowing what action I needed to take in order to move toward my goals. After working with her, I am way less worried, stressed out, and overwhelmed.”

CHRISTA BAIRD, LIFE COACH

 
 

“ I feel that I have achieved so much in a very little time! I’ve been more creative in my everyday life, and I’m much happier in my work now.

Jennie C.png

"When I started working with Emily, I was struggling to get moving, and my lack of forward motion was causing me a great deal of stress and anxiety. Coaching can be a tricky balance of reflection and action, but Emily has found that balance and is truly excellent at it. She asks the type of questions that allow you to figure out what you need on your own, and she is able to keep tabs on the things that are important to you. I feel that I have achieved so much in a very little time! I’ve been more creative in my everyday life, and I’m much happier in my work now. As cheesy as it may sound, I feel much truer to myself. I couldn’t be happier that I made this investment!

“Now I have a new job and a plan for my side-hustle, and I no longer feel overwhelmed."

Danielle Sobieski circle.png

“When I started working with Emily, I was struggling with what to do next. I was unhappy with my job and my long commute, and I wasn’t sure if I could start a private practice. Working with Emily made me realize that, even though I haven’t thought of myself as an entrepreneur, I really can start my own thing, and I began fact-finding and planning for my side-hustle, which is something I had been putting off. Emily is able to break down what is holding a person back and guide them. She helped me reframe how I thought about things. Without being condescending, she was able to untangle what I was saying and feeling and get to the root of the issue that was holding me back. Now I have a new job and a plan for my side-hustle, and I no longer feel overwhelmed."

DANIELLE SOBIESKI, REGISTERED DIETITIAN

 

“I actually start a new job next Monday! Thank you so much!”

 

 "You are absolutely WONDERFUL at what you do. It's so awesome! You just work with what's already there...you're like an idea extractor! I feel so much clearer about so many things, and I actually start a new job next Monday! Thank you so much!"
