I have tripled my business since beginning my work with Bria 3 years ago…I never, ever thought it would be possible to love my job, succeed in my work, and preserve so much time for myself and my family.
“When I first found Bria, my idea about coaching was that I’d sign up for a year of help and then would be on my way. Truthfully, I had no idea the level of support I was about to receive, and as I sign my contract with Bria for a fourth consecutive year of coaching, I realize that I’ve begun to think of her as an integral part to my business’s continued growth. She has truly become my business adviser, and as my company continues its rapid pace of growth, her deep understanding of my business, staff, and personal life are proving to be more valuable than ever. I have tripled my business since beginning my work with Bria 3 years ago, and as the business grows, she is a steady voice reminding me how to keep my freedom and health as the top priority. I never, ever thought it would be possible to love my job, succeed in my work, and preserve so much time for myself and my family. Amazing! Bria’s service is among the very best investments I’ve made in my business over its lifetime. ” – Heather Garrett

Working with Bria has made a huge difference in the way we do business. She helped us develop systems to manage our employees, improve our customer satisfaction, and accelerate our cash flow. I highly recommend working with Exelerated Success if you have the opportunity!

“My husband and I have owned a successful custom home renovation business for 15 years.  We’ve tried other coaches but felt we did not get the personal attention we needed.  During our initial conversation with Bria, she quickly got to the heart of my business concerns by asking insightful questions about the ways I was doing business, what was and wasn’t working and specific areas where I felt stuck or unhappy. She took the time to talk with me at length and scheduled a time to talk with my husband, as well, in order to ensure that we were a good fit.

Working with Bria has made a huge difference in the way we do business. She helped us develop systems to manage our employees, improve our customer satisfaction, and accelerate our cash flow.  Equally as important is the ongoing support in creating an enriching life outside of work.  I highly recommend working with Exelerated Success if you have the opportunity!” – Kathy Gunn

In addition, we are more profitable and we are working less.  We are more optimistic about our future and our stress levels have decreased.  Running a business with a spouse can be difficult at times but Bria has helped us meet in the middle on many business and personal matters.

“We have found Bria to be invaluable..  Before meeting Bria, we had no systems in place for how to help our business succeed.  We were floundering despite having the best employees, a great reputation and high demand for our services. We are making progress in so many areas of our business after one year with Bria.  In addition, we are more profitable and we are working less.  We are more optimistic about our future and our stress levels have decreased.  Running a business with a spouse can be difficult at times but Bria has helped us meet in the middle on many business and personal matters.  We are so thankful for her advice and acumen and we look forward to continuing our work with her.” – Emily and Chris Kreutzer

I used to constantly be putting out fires.  Now my business is running better, making more money, and I have a lot more time off.
“I attended one of Bria’s talks and she immediately grabbed my attention when she talked about strategies to increase my free time.  I’ve owned my business for 15 years and used to work 15 hour days, 6 days a week.   With the systems and procedures I’ve learned from Bria, I now work 4 days a week, 9 hours a day.  I used to constantly be putting out fires.  Now my business is running better, making more money, and I have a lot more time off.  I highly recommend Bria’s services.” – Tim Boucher

Where my first year with Bria took me was far beyond what I could have imagined for my business or me. Bria is as much about guiding one to cultivate a strong sense and clear vision (and action steps to get there!) of one’s business as she is about stressing the importance of creating sacred time to care for ones self – emotionally, physically and mentally.
“I started my business in 2006 and was one of the very fortunate few to have some really great clients and projects that helped launched my career.  And then, after the recession, things went stale.   I found out about a lecture that Bria was giving and I thought the topic outline ( attracting “ideal clients” and “running a highly profitable business”) sounded like something I needed to explore. During that seminar, it was clear to me that if I wanted to turn things around I needed help and guidance to get me to where I wanted to go. I figured I’d give it a year and see where it took me. Well, where my first year with Bria took me was far beyond what I could have imagined for my business or me. Bria is as much about guiding one to cultivate a strong sense and clear vision (and action steps to get there!) of one’s business as she is about stressing the importance of creating sacred time to care for ones self – emotionally, physically and mentally. The change in my business (and personal life) this past year is palpable – in the most positive of ways – and I look forward to digging even deeper with her in this 2nd year.” – Darci Hether

Thanks to Bria, I now have a clear system in place to attract and service my clients, manage stress and time, and plan for the future success of my business.
“Having hired my own coaches in the past, I knew that what I needed most right now was…a coach! I knew a coach would help me formalize and organize my business, manage stress, implement systems, and hold me accountable. Finding Bria was a true turning point for me. My time with her has saved me months, possibly years, of struggling to identify my niche market, create comprehensive marketing materials, implement client management systems, identify specific immediate and long-term goals, and coach me through difficult decisions and challenges. Thanks to Bria, I now have a clear system in place to attract and service my clients, manage stress and time, and plan for the future success of my business. As I recently told them, everyone needs a coach! Thank you Bria for all you’ve done for me and will do in the future!” – Christine H. Grant
