As an interior designer, a large part of my business comes from word of mouth referrals. But it is sometimes not enough, and there is a need to draw in additional new business. I engaged Annette as my coach a little over a year ago, and I am so glad I did. She has guided me through a redesign and fine-tuning of my business plan in ways I would never have taken if not for her guidance and persistence. She helped me evaluate the values, skills and strengths that are the foundation of my business practice; and helped me deal with weaknesses, turning them into positives.
Her coaching has supported me through some difficult times. My work can be quite lonely and isolating at times; her ability to inspire has carried me through, and been immensely invaluable.
Annette has also helped me face the realities of a changing interior design and business landscape, identify issues and processes that needed revision, and helped me develop more effective strategies for the future.
I am grateful for Annette’s support, encouragement, ‘can do’ attitude, and compassionate yet critical listening skills. She brings so much clarity to my business road map – a map that was quite unclear before. Annette will bring so much value to any business owner!
