“The Chef is a standout amongst mentors.

She teaches you to fish. She shares generously, offers wisdom, insight and actionable plans to help you reach your goals. Don’t know how to identify goals that will work for you? There’s guidance for that too. Tea, a gifted wordsmith, connects and creates supportive communities.

“Tea’s helped me with my message…

by giving me solid guidelines and action items to get stuff done. She is not for the faint at heart and cracks a mean whip but it the most authentic person I know. Looking to hone your marketing efforts, the Chef is your gal.

“Tea’s helped me to think differently…

— on a daily basis — about who my target clients are and the best way to communicate with them. That’s huge! Tea’s advice is current and savvy and you know you are on the cutting edge when working with her.

“Tea is amazingly generous and smart.

It’s really important to find someone who’s got a lot of experience, knows the ropes, and is still open and growing her/himself. And I LOVE the tough love: do the work or you’re out. You know, I’ve bought a lot of programs and read and listened to and watched endless webinars and …. now I’m doing the work. That makes all the difference.

Fear. Fearless. Fearfully ready to take action?

Fears run rampant here lately. I've noticed lots of comments during coaching sessions like, "I can't do that. I'll look stupid." or "Are you serious? Me? Um, NO." Which reminded me of the time my son and I went hiking. Or, at least, he went hiking. I got as far as the...

Small Business Pickles: a True Tale of Trust and Betrayal

Dinner Conversations: Engage Your Fans Online

Troll the interwebs and you'll find plenty of advice on how to avoid killing your business relationships with email and other technologies. We've all gotten so used to texting, tweeting and tagging each other, that we've forgotten how important it is to actually use our phones. And I'm just as guilty as the rest of you.
