If you’re in business and on the verge of burnout, you need Amy and Suzanne! I coach a lot of small business owners and we enjoy a lot of success, but there’s just no substitute for the camaraderie and support you can get from a group of people in the same boat. When my clients join one of Amy and Suzanne’s groups for entrepreneurs and small business owners, they get focused, get moving and get back the passion for why they went into business in the first place. Being in a group pushes you further, faster toward that elusive balanced and happy life. If you are an entrepreneur or small business owner, you can’t afford NOT to take advantage of their programs and coaching.

As a free-lance creative consultant, I am often spinning my wheels in way too many directions. I recently took the Small Business Development Course with Amy Tardio and Suzanne Levy and thankfully, came away with a vast amount of knowledge in a small amount of time and the ability to re-focus my priorities on where my strengths and values will really pay off. The course helped consider new ways to get rid of stumbling blocks and stop procrastinating. The group dynamic was motivating and more encouraging than anticipated. I would recommend anyone starting a business or entrepreneurial endeavor to sign up Amy and Suzanne as their coaches.”

My application of the principles and materials presented, discussed and championed by Suzanne and Amy in their Entrepreneur and Small Business Development Workshop has changed my business. My focus shifted from the toil and minute of working in the business to my original dream of working on and growing a thriving enterprise. Their coaching and feedback coupled with the insights of other participants encouraged me to communicate my passion and the mission of the business clearly to our employees, to hold them accountable for results and empower them with trust and encouragement. This workshop, and Suzanne and Amy’s frank and empathetic coaching, helped me improve the profitability, employee morale and customer satisfaction in my Sonic Drive-In restaurants. I recommend Suzanne and Amy wholeheartedly for coaching and this workshop for the impact it has had on my business and my life.

I found the Entrepreneur and Small Business Development Workshop helpful in a number of ways. The course provided structure to help me move forward with marketing strategies and other necessary business tasks and helped make these tasks achievable. The support of the coaches and other students provided a sense of community and wonderful encouragement. I received valuable insights and feedback regarding my business. I was also able to create a realistic and tangible plan for my professional dream and feel like I am on the way to creating the business I want. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone trying to start up their own business or grow their existing business. I would be happy to share my experience in this course with potential future students.

Walking my walk as wellness coach, athlete and mentor toward leading an active lifestyle with allergies has been central to my business vision, but I had too much on my plate to do it. The Small Business Development course led by Amy & Suzanne helped me to recognize the weekly small steps I could take towards fulfilling the business and life I cared about. Within two weeks, I had made significant progress on my website and by the end of the course I was back in business. It is with sincere gratitude, and high regards, that I pass on the recommendation to jump at the opportunity to work with Amy and Suzanne.
