“I can’t begin to describe how being coached has changed my life. Prior to working with Blair, I just had a dream that was taking up space in my head. I had a longing, a wanting, and by my standards, it was something intangible. With my very first coaching session, he was able to help me gain clarity around what I wanted to accomplish with my business Women’s Guide to Sanity, and take the first step into making it a reality. Today, I am growing my business and continue to reach new limits all because he helped me see that my only barrier is myself. Being coached has helped me define who I am as an entrepreneur and what my purpose is in life. I can easily say that today, I am a completely different women that exudes confidence, all because we established tools that I can utilize to get me passed the anxiety of the unknown. I have made the decision to make coaching a business expense because working with Blair has helped me turn my passion into a career and establish a sense of female community in my surrounding area. He will say that “This is all you”, and yes, it was all me, however, without him bringing clarity in moments where I could not see, I wouldn’t be where I am at today.”
