"Amazing! Practical, attainable, funny and inspiring. Thank you for the class and the time and energy you have put in to gather the knowledge."

"Great information delivered in a very entertaining way. I appreciate your honesty in your examples."

"Hi, Veronika (with a K!), thanks so much for all the helpful info in your Friday's networking class. I tend to build up things in my mind, like networking, to make them a lot worse than they really are.  Your ideas are simple and do-able, and I appreciate that.  I've also made some changes to my "elevator speech" too based on what I learned."

Ever have one of those days when you wonder if what you do makes a difference?

Yeah, me too. When that happens, I sometimes pull out my client feedback, testimonials, and heartfelt letters of gratitude, but no more.

If I ever feel a bit discouraged again, I am totally going to read this fabulous Ode to a Marketing Coach written by my dear friend and client Mary Jane Weigel. Wow! Thanks and well done, MJ!

Ode to a Marketing Coach
I know a marketing coach,
   whose reputation is beyond reproach.
One day in class, she said "Protect your ...!
   Have several small clients instead of
        one big one.  In case, the big one quits,
            you won't go into fits."
I listened to this and thought "Hmmm, this
    could be me." 
Life went on with my stable clientele until last evening,
      when in a call about a check led to my "big client" stating,
"A new bookkeeper will begin on 1 Sept. (!)
     (The reason is money; she'll be working for honey.)
This said, I took a deep breath, shaken to my depth,
  but I found I wasn't panicked or sad. 
I knew what to do and got out my pad.   I received a report card
   a short time ago; I worked on it then.  My marketing is ready to go.
And so I end this little diddy to simply say I'm almost kiddy.
   I say aloud "Thank you, Ronnie!"  I'll make you proud. 
I wouldn't be in this very good place without your record setting pace,
    your kindness (with some blindness) to regroup, respond and recall the best saying of all
"Today's a great day for marketing!" to help me stand tall.

It really is inspiring to listen to and to be around people who are walking the walk and getting things done." ~Connie Dorigan, CPC,

Am I ever delighted with the Mastermind group. My first month's value was worth the cost of the entire year's participation!!  ~ Tammy Cook,

"And speaking of impressed,  you too, continue to impress me.  I LOVE the inspiration calls, for their inspiration and for their accountability.   So thank you." ~ Connie Dorigan,

"I enjoy and appreciate all the attention and the direction of the new Marketing Mastermind.  I notice your added energy and focus and find value in it. Hearing the same things in different ways allows the information to integrate more fully. After listening to you, I am ever more understanding of the dance between listening and sharing.  When you speak, there is the intertwining of your years of experience.  I am gradually learning the various pieces that you put together so skillfully and gracefully.  Then you top it off with your powerful strength of ideation." ~ Caron MacLane, Circle Coach & Consultant,

"I just finished my marketing plan. I can't believe how easy it was after your class...I can't believe I actually have a marketing plan put together. Good gracious, I'd read quite a few marketing books and took notes, but then all I had was a computer file with a lot of notes. Now, after your one-hour class--and the Friday deadline--I actually wrote it down and even went through some of those notes while I did it. Wow. I can't believe I did it! Thanks so much, Ronnie. You're terrific!" ~Julie McDonald Zander, Chapters of Life Memory Books,

"You are an amazingly generous soul who is helping small businesses like mine by your emails and the very approach that you take to business. Thanks for being such a help!" ~Sharon Silver, Center for Conscious Parenting
