What Clients Say...

Ellen Faye

After struggling for two years trying to develop a growth plan for my Professional Organizing business, I hired Karyn as my small business coach. It wasn't always an easy process, but now - three months later, I have a very solid plan and more importantly vision for myself and my business. Through the process Karyn balanced support with direction and the ever-present thought provoking question.

With her wealth of knowledge and her depth of experience there was never a business question I had that she didn't have an answer to. Thank You, Karyn.

John Balestrieri

Karyn's help was invaluable in keeping my company's product launch on track. She quickly focused on the specific problems we were encountering, such as how to find and vet the companies and contractors we needed to work with, and by helping plan our broader marketing efforts. Along the way, Karyn provided pointers on how to use online tools that made our work easier. Best of all, Karyn's phone consultations always left us with a sense of clarity because we gained insight into what needed to be done and what concrete actions were required to do it.

Julie Cohen

When I started working with Karyn as my coach she asked me 'Are you sure you can handle all the new business that will come your way?'

I was a bit skeptical when she made that comment, but she was right! I've hired an assistant and am also looking for additional support to effectively manage my business at this new level.

Peter Gross

Getting organized around our brand position and message has been something that we always wanted to devote our energy to, but struggled with. Karyn gave us enormous confidence around how strong our brand could be, and identified the tactics to build better brand awareness. She added tremendous value in everything from naming challenges (our company name) to how to ensure that we were viewed as authorities in our space. We are concurrently undertaking a rebranding while employing Karyn's suggested tactics that demonstrate our expertise and drive more sales. Karyn helped dotOrg focus where and how to invest our energy – without her counsel it's hard to imagine where we would be now.

What Clients Say...

Suzanne Hiscock

Karyn is business savvy and is a real “coach.” She pulls things out of me; she keeps me on track and focused because I tend to go off in all directions with new ideas.

Not once during our work together did she not have an answer/solution, an idea or a way to help me figure out a problem for myself.

I like that this isn’t some canned program to follow. The sessions are all about me and my business, what challenges are happening right now for my business, and what I want out of the business.

In the world of business, lots of services are available but I found that working with Passion for Business, I not only got excellent service but I also got positive business results. Thank you so much. You are my MVP and so good at what you do. Thanks, Karyn, for all you have done for me.
