"Despite the demands of her own demanding enterprise, she was able to focus on me in many ways as a mentor, guiding me over obstacles and teaching me to see them as opportunities rather than problems... Betsy is the very definition of a go-getter...Through her deep faith in God, her belief in her own abilities and her fierce commitment to success, she literally 'goes' and 'gets' every goal she puts her mind to, with a laser-sharp focus on whatever that endeavor may be."

"Betsy... never compromises her values and beliefs for short term success. She has built a business and a life that are historically strong and have great sustainable success. Both that business and her life have blessed multitudes of people.  She delivers a 'home run' with each assignment, much due to the level of prayer and preparation she invests into each assignment. She will deliver beyond your expectations, and will wholeheartedly partner with you for significant progress and growth in your organization."

She encouraged us to view our company through new lenses which helped us to develop strategies that improved current and future business performance and productivity.  Betsy guided us in uniting our employees resulting in a dedicated team working toward the same goals.  Betsy breathed new life into our company and we couldn’t be more grateful."

"Betsy was a mentor and coach for me as I built a small business. To this day she is still there if I need her. She is excellent at building a business from the ground up, training on team building and selling to support that business, and encouraging entrepreneurs to believe they can do what they set their mind to. Betsy is solid, sound and energetic, and she has a passion to see a dream through to the finish."

"Where do I begin. Starting my own non-profit and growing so fast beyond my wildest imagination, I knew I needed expert advice on how to manage the business as efficiently and effectively as possible. Our organization has been running on prayers and passion, but I knew that would only take us so far. I needed someone who would walk with me through structuring the business top to bottom. Betsy has exceeded all my expectations. The organization is shaping up and I’m communicating more effectively with our team members. God has surely placed her in my life, and I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor and business coach."

"Because of the work Betsy and I have done together, my business is in a much better place structurally and is secure for the growth I anticipate.  Betsy’s unhindered honesty and ways to help us be accountable are immeasurable.  We have established our core values, focus, 1, 3, and 10-year targets and so much more. A processes and procedures manual is now in place that will serve our business for a long time.  Communication, taking care of issues, respect for all and team spirit are up.  If you want to get all the pieces together and make sure they are operating optimally, I recommend getting Betsy on board.  You cannot put a price tag on the feeling of peace that comes when there is more flow in operations."

"Working with Betsy this last year has been one of the best decisions I have made. Betsy helped me remain focused on ideas that I have had for years. She was structured and kept me accountable to sticking to tasks and goals I had set for myself. Betsy is compassionate when I am struggling and patient in helping me overcome obstacles which I had to realize was fear. She was gentle and firm in helping me face the ways I was self- sabotaging myself and my goals. With her help, I have been strong enough to look at different choices I had, and make connections in the community that are helping me with my goals for my life and my business. I would definitely recommend Betsy as a Business Consultant if you are looking to start a business or grow and expand a business. She will give you even more than just advice, she will help you see yourself, your true self."

"The last couple of years have presented challenges, between Covid and some major hurricanes, I had been very busy in the agency. I wanted to spend some time going back to the basics, and Betsy’s attention to detail was exactly what I needed. Betsy helped me to have clarity about my vision and core values, especially when adding new agents to our team, to ensure we were moving in the right direction. Betsy and I focused on some small changes that have made a big impact on my business. My biggest asset is my staff and the teambuilding work we did with Betsy helped us to understand ourselves and each other better, and I can’t think of anything more important than that for long-term success in a business."

"The DiSC personality assessment and facilitation with Betsy has made an amazing difference in communication at our office. We now understand how differently we all communicate, and what can block us from being the most effective and efficient while working together. It takes time and work, however, the payoff is already happening as we have become more compassionate towards each other and what each other's needs are. Betsy's idea of using a signal to be more mindful of each other's work needs to perform more optimally is helping."

"The 1st quarterly meeting was a great success! Betsy's facilitation helped us to uncover issues, hone in on finishing the 1st quarter successfully, and plan for a productive 2nd quarter. Having my team away from the office for half a day was difficult, but will pay off as we have grown more as a team, are focused in the same powerful direction, and know each other better to work better together. Thank you Betsy! This was not something I would have thought to do, but now see how vital it is going forward "
