“I knew I needed all the help I could get, so I signed up for her 1:1 coaching program. It was the best thing I could have ever done.  

My biggest fear was the technology surrounding my Kickstarter. Lisa is a wiz navigating web links etc., and when she wasn’t familiar with a website, she dug deep and figured it out and taught me along the way.

I have to say after working with her, I now find myself more confident in my computer skills and taking chances because if I mess up, there is always a way to fix it.” – Ruth Maille, $7k on Kickstarter

‘Lisa, thank you for all of your support. I couldn’t have done it without you!’ – Cece Kelley, $25k on Kickstarter

‘Lisa’s course is AMAZING! I’m not only getting clarity on creating an amazing campaign, I’m also clear on what my book offers and what I stand for in the author space in general. SO GOOD!’ – Tee Thior, planning to launch May 2021

I always leave my sessions with Lisa  feeling more excited to think bigger.’ – Peter Beresford, raised $5k on Kickstarter
