“Heather’s laser sharp inner vision helps her see right to the heart of any matter.”

Heather’s laser sharp inner vision helps her see right to the heart of any matter. She then breaks it down into workable, bite-size bits and presents them clearly in an empowering manner. Her passion for her work and her infectious can-do attitude cannot help but inspire. She’s been a valuable business sounding board for me, offering a fresh perspective and practical no-nonsense suggestions. Her coaching clients have truly found someone both well-suited and equipped for the job – she’s a natural!

“Heather has a way of getting straight to the heart of the issue while still making it fun to create solutions. Her recommendations are completely personalized and her strategies get results.”

When I signed up for a VIP Day with Heather, I couldn’t really describe what was holding me back. But I knew that some aspects of my business weren’t working.

Just completing the intake questionnaire gave me ideas about what I could do differently and the “ah-ha’s” started to snowball when we met.

Heather has a way of getting straight to the heart of the issue while still making it fun to create solutions. Her recommendations are completely personalized and her strategies get results.

If you want to get unstuck and move into profitable action, I would highly recommend Heather.

Over a very short time working with her, my monthly revenue has quintupled- no joke. She is so incredibly adept at cutting through what doesn’t matter and putting you on the exact right path.

Heather is a transformative marketing coach. Over a very short time working with her, my monthly revenue has quintupled- no joke. She is so incredibly adept at cutting through what doesn’t matter and putting you on the exact right path.

She can read what stage a business is at like nothing I’ve ever seen before and gives you step my step guidance on how to actually put the strategy you’ve created with her into execution mode. And man, will you see results!

I couldn’t recommend Heather enough if you’re struggling with getting your business off the ground, how to market yourself or growing your business. She rocks!

“The way Heather brought the focus on my energy into our sessions allowed me to stay aligned with what’s most meaningful in my work instead of feeling like I was selling myself out purely for more revenue!”

I was stuck in the doldrums in my coaching business, earning barely and money and feeling fuzzy about what exactly I was offering clients. Working with Heather, I relaunched my business with a signature program, raised my rates and earned as much in three months as I did the previous year!

The way Heather brought the focuson my energy into our sessions allowed me to stay aligned with what’s most meaningful in my work instead of feeling like I was selling myself out purely for more revenue!

Heather delivers the goods: I felt supported, motivated and focused. After working with Heather, I finally see myself as an entrepreneur!

Working with Heather has been game changing for my business!

Working with Heather has been game changing for my business! When I connected with Heather, I was unclear on what my biggest roadblocks were and was really struggling with reaching my revenue goals.

Heather helped me shift my focus from nonessential activities to identifying the key activities that drive my business. She’s brilliant, and it’s been an honor to work with her!

Heather was willing to be flexible and give me what I needed rather than adhere strictly to a pre-defined model.

I hired Heather to help me understand how best to market my products to individual clients, and was having trouble finding someone that understood the corporate and individual markets. She brings both to the table, which is one of her key differentiators. Heather was also willing to be flexible and give me what I needed rather than adhere strictly to a pre-defined model.

Heather's practical approach helped me get things done (she goes beyond concept to implementation) and get to the heart of what mattered most to me so I could bring that into my marketing to attract the right type of clients.

Heather is proactive, organized, responsive, and very reliable. She is passionate about her work and it shows!

Heather and I have worked together on several occasions - as board members of the NYC Marketing Resource Group and instructors of marketing workshops. Heather is proactive, organized, responsive, and very reliable. She is passionate about her work and it shows! She's an excellent leader and dedicated to helping her clients succeed.

"She will take you to the next level"

Working with Heather transformed my business approach in exactly the way I needed. I was stuck and not sure how I should be reaching out to my clients and finding new ones.

My work with Heather got me out my rut and I renewed and invigorated my practice. I’m attracting new clients and creating new programming that I love. She listens. She’s intuitive. She’s smart. She has tremendous resources. She will take you to the next level.

“Her insights and guidance helped me change how I approached my work in a way that felt very authentic”

I worked for several months with Heather during a time in which I was plagued by both professional and personal uncertainty. What impressed me tremendously was Heather’s ability to hone in on my defining qualities and also identify the ways that I was working against myself. Her insights and guidance helped me change how I approached my work in a way that felt very authentic — and I ultimately started making better decisions. I am writing this at the end of the calendar year, and I am excited to see what comes next for me in the New Year with my newly found insight. Thank you, Heather!

She has the unique ability to bring out the best in you.

I worked with Heather to help me strengthen my social media skills. Great Coaches are Great Listeners and that is exactly what Heather is.

I found her to be knowledgeable, passionate, inspirational, and fun to work with. She has the unique ability to bring out the best in you. Thank you, Heather, for your valuable advice, support, and helping me see social media in a whole new light.

I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for results-oriented business coaching.

I worked with Heather during a one-day VIP session to get some focused insights on how to prioritize my activities and target my business. She was able to give me some valuable perspective around my strengths and identify opportunities to re position my offering and more effectively use my time. I really appreciated Heather’s thoroughness and recommendations and also enjoyed her energy and enthusiasm. I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for results-oriented business coaching.

With Heather as my coach, together we were able to implement a plan to move past my mess.

My experience with Heather was powerful and definitely life-changing. Heather has a unique ability to call-out whatever “bullshit” she sees and invites you to examine how it impacts your life. By truly facing my bullshit, I found myself in a better position to understand how I have been affected and limited over the years.

With Heather as my coach, together we were able to implement a plan to move past my mess. Sure I did all the work, but it was great having Heather there to offer support, encouragement, and truly champion my effort. Without a doubt, I have conquered much in such little time, that whenever I am challenged with a “bullshit” situation… I immediately rely on my inner power discovered with Heather to go forward.

No bullshit! Heather is a fantastic coach! 🙂

Heather helped me identify and remember the reasons why I found success early on – things that I lost sight of in the day to day responsibilities carried by every business owner.

As a business owner, I wanted to get to the next level but some personal and business hurdles were preventing me from doing so. I knew I needed to do something different to get different results.

Working with Heather has been a positive step in the right direction and done in a fun, positive energy way.

I like honesty and asked her to be blunt with me when working together; through that process we still shared quite a few laughs and moments of clarity. Together we worked on techniques for lead generation, self-marketing, sales funnel organization & management, amongst other things.

The thing that I’ve found of greatest value was finding myself again. Heather helped me identify and remember the reasons why I found success early on – things that I lost sight of in the day to day responsibilities carried by every business owner. That one key activity has helped me re-energize, stay grounded, find focus and welcome challenges to overcome.

As a business owner, it’s critical to invest in yourself, identify your strengths and weaknesses, and always keep progressing forward. Heather has been an excellent and immensely valuable resource in helping me identify, plan and fulfill my personal and business goals. I would highly recommend working with Heather and taking a step forward in your life personally and professionally.

“My business went from a trickle of clients here and there to a floodgate of quality clients. I tripled my business income in just a few months.”

There are no words to truly capture Heather’s coaching. Not only is Heather an amazing, insightful, super smart business coach but she is a fantastic person. She is a powerhouse when it comes to helping you ramp up your business in rapid speed.

Within the first few months of working with Heather, I saw change almost immediately. My business went from just a trickle of clients here and there to a floodgate of quality clients. I tripled my business income in just a few months. Heather taught me how to go from passive networking to strategically gaining clients at networking events. She also taught me to raise my fees confidently and I began booking clients at my higher rates. I mean, the results were just phenomenal.

But as amazing as Heather was at helping me grow my business, the biggest value I found in working with her was the never-ending confidence and belief she had in me. This undoubtedly propelled me forward in my business and in my life overall. I wholeheartedly recommend Heather and would without a doubt work with her again.

“In my first month working with [Heather] I made $2,000 more than any month before and four months later I doubled my revenue.”

I was at a point in my business where I wasn’t succeeding at breaking into the next level. I knew I needed support, guidance and a big push. Heather came highly recommended by two of her last clients, so I knew that she must be doing something right. In my first month working with her, I made 2K more than I had in any month before and four months later I doubled my revenue.

Heather helped me look at some of the areas where I was just being dumb in running a business – tracking my money, not tapping into my network, etc. I became tremendously smarter about how I wanted to run a business without causing me so much stress and I chose to change tendencies that were holding me back.

I would tell someone to hire her when they need the push to really step up and act like a CEO. I also would tell someone who needs to clean up the basics that you are perfect for that – without a solid foundation you can’t succeed.

“Today, I’m a more disciplined person. I’m taking control of my decisions and my business is growing by the minute.”

I’m truly thankful to Heather Markel and happy of having taken the decision of investing in a business/life coach and learning not only all the technicalities of building and growing a business, but most importantly, understanding the reasons why it doesn’t grow and the strategies towards evolving and accomplishing – as I learn, always connected to oneself and our own issues.

If you are searching for clarity, if you are searching for challenge, if you are searching for accountability, Heather is the person for you.

Today, I’m a more disciplined person, I’m taking control of my decisions and my business is growing by the minute.

Thank you Heather, I know I’ll take all these learnings forever with me!

What I gained from our coaching is that I transformed myself even more than I had thought possible.

The biggest value I got from coaching with Heather was repeatedly going to mining depths I never knew existed. It always surprised me that though Heather has a very practical/goal-oriented side, she has an enormous spiritual side as well. She always helped me see fresh viewpoints and consider new ideas I hadn’t thought of.

What I gained from our coaching is that I transformed myself even more than I had thought possible. Going into the coaching, I expected to get only Heather’s perspective of me. But, she showed me things about myself I didn’t realize, and helped me learn a lot for my own coaching practice, which has helped me with my own clients.

I got to be constantly reminded of who I am, and Heather never let me forget that. She was and is my biggest supporter. I began wholeheartedly believing how truly great I am! Heather held me accountable by helping me recognize when my excuses and fears got in the way, and this enabled me to get on with what I needed to do.

I loved working with Heather because she was always dedicated and committed to my progress. She allowed me to show up fully and go to very deep levels. She has incredible intuition, sensitivity and dedication. She is there with you in the dark moments, when you need her, and equally supportive when you need accountability and goal-orientation.

Her vision-based approach to coaching really helped me re-focus my energy and time. Entrepreneurship can be daunting at times, and she helped me find ways to regain balance in my life.

I worked with Heather on issues that included the current state of my business, my business vision, and what was blocking my path to success. Heather is easy to work with, a good listener, and candid.

Heather was a tremendous help in that she gave me an outsider’s perspective on my business. As an entrepreneur, it can be easy to love your business idea so much that you shy away from giving yourself an honest and critical assessment of your goals, and having an outside opinion is essential to success. Her vision-based approach to coaching really helped me re-focus my energy and time. Entrepreneurship can be daunting at times, and she helped me find ways to regain balance in my life.

Because of our work together, I have a clearer idea of what direction I would like to take my business. I’m a ‘big picture’ type of person, and Heather was so helpful because she helped me think about what steps specifically I would have to take to make my ideas a reality. That was really the biggest benefit for me both in business and personally.

Heather will help you take your business to the next level! I feel so much more confident and energized about my entrepreneurial spirit and goals, and that has made a great difference not only in my business, but in my personal life as well.

Heather is an amazing powerhouse. She’s caring enough to keep it real. Working with Coach Heather transformed my business and even my personal life.

The most impactful business professional I have worked with to build my business is Coach Heather. The experience was amazing and transformational. She sets the tone of success with her uncanny way of getting past the excuses. She truly knew how to bust the bull when I was dishing it because she is a great listener. When I mislabeled ideas, notions, desires she made sure to acknowledge them, to ask more probing questions, and then helped me see them accurately leading me to more powerful self discoveries. She brought my attention to my habit of going A-Z without going through each step. Heather helped clear the way for more action orientated thinking instead of processes thinking.

Heather is an amazing powerhouse. She’s caring enough to keep it real. Working with Coach Heather transformed my business and even my personal life.

Heather is an excellent coach who has helped me in many different areas of my personal and professional life.

Heather is an excellent coach who has helped me in many different areas of my personal and professional life. She is one of my most trusted advisors with whom I consult with regularly. I rely on her expertise and knowledge and her coaching has helped me see things clearly when I have been unable to see them myself. I recently had to deliver a keynote speech in a business culture that I was not familiar with. Heather's knowledge and experience in culture transition and skill as an expert writer helped me organize, prepare, and deliver the best keynote I've ever done. I recommend her highly.
