–Terry Lammers, President, Innovate Business Brokerage Group, Inc.

Wendy helped us create a more cohesive team of WE vs. ME.”
-Luke Harris, Owner, Highland Recycling and Shredding

She believes in the people she is coaching.”
-Diana Voegele, Owner, Express Employment Professionals


“Before working with Wendy, I didn’t believe in the business coach concept. After meeting Wendy, I experienced the value of working with a coach.

She helps get to the mind and heart of her clients.”

She is very knowledgeable in many facets and brings lots of energy to the program as well as her infectious positive attitude. “

“I found Wendy’s program to be well-structured, interactive and thought-provoking. The topics covered were of practical relevance to help improve my management practices and bring about new creative insights. I would recommend Wendy as an Executive Coach to anyone looking to realize what is really important, some to listen carefully and non-judgmentally then explore suggestions for actions that were apparent but only became very clear after discussions with you, and stay focused on personal and professional goals and achieve sustainable results. I have walked away from our engagement with a treasure trove of actions and ideas that will drive my approach for a long time to come.”
-Laurie Louvier, Marketing Services Manager, SeaStar Solutions


“I chose to work with Wendy because my business was growing and gaining momentum which presented a new set of challenges. I wanted to be proactive in managing the growth so it happened in an organized fashion. We were also in the middle of ownership succession so Wendy was able to help both generations during the transition. Wendy facilitated the tough conversations so they were more productive and as a whole, the organization has become more committed to the end result of creating happy customers. Wendy creates a custom approach for each client and goes the extra mile to ensure everything goes smoothly.”
-Mark Mueller, Owner and General Manager, Mueller Furniture

-Bridget Hurst, Rodan and Fields


“It was helpful to work with someone who understood my passion for what I do. Wendy is very professional and honest. She helped me learn to celebrate my wins as a female business owner.

I really appreciate her consistency, diligence, and the fact that she is an emotionally safe place to talk things through.”
-Holly Reed, Rodan and Fields


“We were going through an ownership change in our business and needed someone to help us work through the transition. We’ve worked with a lot of different business coaches over the years. The difference with Wendy is that she takes a more personal, whole life approach instead of solely focusing on your business. She helps you set personal goals first and then focus on the business. Setting personal goals first allowed us to work on ourselves and then the business, which was the most important thing.”
-David Padgett, Owner and General Manager of Padgett Building


“I was transitioning to retirement and needed to tie up some loose ends and details. Wendy’s attention to detail helped us stay focused. It felt like we were the only company she was working with.

We’ve worked with other business coaches in the past, but Wendy had the most impact on my personal and business goals.”
-Ron Padgett, CEO and Owner of Padgett Building


“Wendy is a good listener and she asks good questions. When I started this process, I never dreamed that my life would feel as ordered as it does now.

-Don Padgett, President of Padgett Building

She has experience with top earners in direct sales and helps you clarify your steps so you can achieve your vision.”
-Morgan and Jeannette Freed, Freed Family Fitness

 

“I knew Wendy before I went through her program. Wendy is likable, trustworthy, and successful. The accountability piece of her program was needed for me as a sole practitioner. I needed to bounce ideas off of someone and work towards those goals. I recommend my clients to Wendy a lot because she is genuine. The value that she brings is really a way for a business owner to partner with someone who is gifted at understanding what keeps owners from success.”
-Carol Sparks, Attorney

 

“Our CEO selected Wendy and we worked with her as a group. I’ve worked with consultants in the past without great results. I knew right away that Wendy was different. She was invested in our success. I was able to apply tools that she introduced right away and I saw results. Wendy empowers groups and I’ve definitely seen positive changes in our organization. For me personally, my productivity has increased and I am able to set and accomplish goals in a more timely manner.”
-Tina Duepner, Chief Financial Officer, Pony Bird Inc.

 

“I worked with Wendy in conjunction with my husband. Going through the program as a couple, we were pleasantly surprised by the results. I was close-minded going into the coaching, but Wendy gave us awesome resources and helped us have aha moments. Working with Wendy has changed how my husband and I handle our employees. Other coaches seemed too domineering, but Wendy made a connection with us right away. We loved her unique curriculum and distinct coaching style.”

-Jessica Mull, Owner, D&D Tire Service

 

“Wendy helped me define my goals and uncover my unique niche. By bringing out my passion, she has helped my business grow tremendously over this past year.

-Dr. Heidi Brocke, CEO, Edge Chiropractic & Wellness

 

“We went through Wendy’s Organizational Culture Enhancement Program. Our company was not in a crisis and things were going well, but we wanted an outside observer to teach us how we might improve our company culture. Wendy saw us as friends and really cared about us. She is open and emphasizes creating a safe environment in the work place. She helped us envision our ideal environment and create a standard of excellence for our culture with structure, rules, and a smoother workflow process. Through our time with Wendy we became more aware of our existing company culture and realized how much that affects employee and company effectiveness. Wendy assisted us in visualizing our ideals and identifying practical ways to reach those ideals.”
– Ray Notgrass, President, Notgrass Company
