“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 for 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 is 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.”
