We have sought out coaches of many kinds over the last 24 years, but never before has anyone been able to communicate a concrete hands-on approach that allowed us to truly understand what changes we needed to improve our business plan and operations. Both our voice-over business and Sol y Canto have benefited enormously from Hillary’s coaching. — Rosi A. (musician), Cambridge, MA

Hillary’s insight and understanding make her an instant ally in strategizing a successful balance between advocacy and sustenance…she picked up critical clues from our discussions and pointed me back to my positive and motivated path. — Scott B. (programmer), Maui, HI

Through our talks, I came to recognize that I’d been believing things about my professional self that were just not true, and soon I was able to stick to a daily writing schedule and make a big move to another state that I’d been afraid of for months.—Caroline A. (writer), Montpelier, VT

Thought you’d be interested to know how things changed for me (quantitatively) between Oct & Nov (our 1st telephone conversation was 11/5): October billables: 33.42 hours, $1,715.31; November billables, 63.88 hours, $3,270.09. Wow! That is incredible! And my mood is soooo much better than it was in October. I truly feel like it’s hard to imagine a better investment than coaching time with you! — coaching client (lawyer), Boston, MA

Hillary’s direct, task/goal-oriented, and supportive approach provided me with an invaluable foundation for the development of a more effective job search. I felt more focused and exhilarated while working with Hillary. — Harriet C. (human services worker), Medford, MA

After 22 years as a banking lawyer, I was laid off at age 53. This was the first time something like this had happened to me, and I had no experience in asking for help. I decided to work with Hillary, and I’m glad I did. She helped me get past the confusion and depression that came from what turned out to be the end of a career, and helped me focus on a strategy for starting the next one. I appreciated her compassionate and yet no-nonsense approach. — Nick R. (lawyer), Cambridge, MA

After just one session, Hillary helped me identify new ways of looking at my situation.  I was able to start clarifying what I really want to do, and how to do it, and separate it from what others consider a successful career.  This has really given me the motivation to start moving forward! Eileen B. (baker), New York, NY
