The connection I felt with Sylvia upon introduction was immediate. I knew I needed some clarity for the transition of and focus for my businesses as I was running 4 business and it was time to make a change. I needed someone to offer me some clear insight and alignment. The 1:1 VIP day Sylvia offered me was perfect. Despite an intense day completely focused on moving forwards, Sylvia's enthusiasm, sense of humour and fun while “doing the work” together allowed for great leaps forward in a very short time. Sylvia is 100% committed and provides processes that offer total clarity, a clear plan for moving forward, and then a 30 day follow up to provide accountability and keep the well organized plan on track. At the end of day I felt like I had successfully completed a marathon, with a clear understanding of the direction, and the action plan in place. Knowing Sylvia was with me every step of the way kept me productive, accountable and on purpose! Thank you Sylvia for all your assistance.
