“Malla is a fantastic coach! From the very first day of our 5 week program, she made us complete exercises that completely took me outside of my comfort zone and it was exactly what I needed! As entrepreneurs we usually spend so much time by ourselves and without knowing we start playing it safe. Well, Malla busted through the doors of my business, turned all the assumptions I had on their head and forced me to shift my attitude. The best part? Since working with her my sales have increased!! I’m so glad I met her and hope to continue working with her.”
