“OMG…. It was amazing. It was fantastic and I never knew I had superpowers. I needed to learn how to develop my brand and create a website. You used questioning to uncover my strengths, talents and abilities and what my true passions were. Now, I understand myself better and can relate that to prospects. The website is up and running and people are responding. I loved the way you used probing questions to uncover the uniqueness in me. You also checked in and reviewed my website for me. You made the necessary changes and corrections when I explained the challenge. The knowledge I gained to learn how to edit and add a blog is phenomenal for my business. I learned a lot about my story and how to transform my story so that others I can help others. You helped me build my business in terms of platforms and landing pages and showed me how to do it through social media and thank you!”

– Liz Streich, Health Coach

“You help narrow down my action plan and clarified the steps to take by prioritizing their urgency and importance so that I can reach my potential clients and market my services. I don’t need to have everything perfect for me to start taking small steps to achieving my goals. I left thinking that I can do it, I can build my practice and be successful. The information that I received in our meeting was exactly what I needed to take my business forward in the right direction.”

– Veronica Diaz, Holistic Health Coach


“I had a wonderful time with Cherene! I cannot thank her enough. She clarified all my queries and gave me a new perspective on my marketing. There were a lot of loose ends and I needed a lot of understanding, so she was able to help me tie it all together and have a very clear view of what I need to do to build my brand. Thank you Cherene!”
– Sumita Mukherjee, Child STEM Educator
I really enjoyed the journey that Cherene took me through as it seemed like a conversation rather than an exercise. Cherene helped me achieve my goals by asking a lot of open-ended questions to get me to open up and elaborate on my business process, vision and my message to my audience. She encouraged my genuineness and was extremely supportive and patient.  She demonstrated professionalism through our interaction but also was very relatable. Overall, I found Cherene’s service to be extremely beneficial.
– Jensi Joseph-Peiris, Insurance Agent

– Peter Vantyle, Madesco Labs
“Before working with Cherene, I was fed up, overwhelmed and struggling with moving forward in my business and relationships. I felt as if I had tried everything and was unable to make strides. During my time with Cherene, she easily assisted me with my personal branding, marketing and sales leading me to a greater sense of self-awareness. Having the validation and positive suggestions from Cherene has allowed me to catapult my business!! After our time together, I have set the stage for my perfect business. I now have clarity and peace in my life, which has enhanced all areas in my world. Thank you, Cherene, for constantly holding space for my brilliance!!”
– Fasana Patel, Entrepreneur

“I felt very scared about venturing out in a business. I was unsure of my why and message. Today, I feel confident about my why and my message, and therefore, more confident about proceeding in business. During the workshop, I felt inspired, empowered and I got confirmation of what I know to be true. It was great to see Cherene as a woman in her power. She gave very practical tools and she clearly embodies/practices everything she teaches.”

“I just sold my first 20 session package tonight. Honestly, I’ve implemented the concepts from your workshops. I haven’t even finished my new website or anything. This was just from me being my new confident self. Thanks, I’m so excited!”

– Alison Coombs, Health & Fitness Coach

“When I first reached out to Cherene, I didn’t have any goals. Having been ambitious my whole life, it was upsetting to be without a mission. Cherene helped me to remove the blocks that were stopping me from creating a new vision for my career and life. The process was a series of sessions to clear away negative beliefs. I think that was different from the “typical” process and appreciated that it was modified to best suit what would help me most. When I started, I dreaded going to work every day. I couldn’t wait to figure out what my new goal was so I could quit. Now I truly enjoy my work and get a lot of satisfaction from it. I also became more accepting of myself and setbacks I face. Last but not least, I realized what my career goals are an now have a clear action plan in place to move forward. I enjoyed that there was a personal component to the coaching sessions. Cherene did a wonderful job of inspiring me with her own personal experiences that helped motivate me in my own journey. I am not sure how it worked, but I look back on how different my life was before I started this process and see such a concrete change that I would recommend Cherene to anyone looking for a breakthrough.”

 – Sarah Vizel, Medical/Technical Engineer (Entrepreneur)

“I had limiting beliefs about my abilities, capabilities, relationships, and MONEY! You helped me uncover my limiting beliefs in my subconscious. Then you used an NLP technique to transport me to the time where the particular belief began in order to erase it and replace it with a newer powerful belief. Wow…. Friends have noticed the exponential growth in my posts on Facebook. They can tell I am just going for it. My business is expanding and growing. I am no longer afraid of money. I find that I do not get as many “no’s” and people are coming to me instead of me having to seek them out. I no longer get scared of trying new things or talking to people about their health and fitness goals. The most delightful part is your energy that you bring with you. You radiate confidence, courage, and strength which is contagious.”

– Liz Streich, Health and Fitness Coach

“I was at an interesting junction in my life and business. Working with Cherene helped me breakthrough challenges that have been a part of me longer than I gave it credit. Not only can I not recall those thoughts and/or feelings, they are no longer a part of my life.”

– Doris Chung, Book and Print Publisher

“Before I worked with Cherene I felt lost in the myriad of choices available to me and found it really hard to action toward building my own business. It always seemed easier to do other things, and that gave me no satisfaction. It only put a drain on business and the rest of my life. Working through my problem with Cherene was a transformative experience. I started the day with confusion and left with motivation and direction to action my goals. Her focus on getting me from problem to the solution was truly appreciated. As I look to the future, I’m so excited and motivated to complete the steps necessary to have my own business – as soon as we were done I had already started mentally planning my first workshop days and locations! With her guidance, I see the path towards reaching success and doing so in a way that meets my core needs. I also am more present with friends and family now, because I stay on task, and the work is being done efficiently.”
– Shannon Pole, Engineer
“Before I worked with Cherene, I was stuck in a rut of procrastination and guilt and really didn’t know how to proceed. While I worked with Cherene, I felt her total focus on me and her complete belief that I can change and move forward. Now I find it difficult to remember what my problem was! I feel excited about my possibilities!”
– Judy Zhok, Pharmacist

Now I am feeling more confident that I can attract and create the life that I want. This was quite a powerful workshop!”– Letitia Montana, Insurance Broker

“I had some great insights. The information on visualizing was wonderful! I became aware of some limiting beliefs that are powerful and I had been dismissing previously. Very helpful. Now I am excited to work further on mindset issues. I’m motivated to releasing my block and using hypnosis. Thank you Cherene. Your energy is inspiring and your connection is amazing!”
