“You really did a great job today with your presentation at the Grow Your Business Workshop. You could hear how many people approached you afterward and thanked you. I’ve attended these workshops before and this was the first time I saw people do that.

I really liked how you made the session into an interactive workshop. Plus, you handled questions so gracefully. That is the TRUE mark of a great presenter. You involved us, and you never made us wish you didn’t.

You seem to be an amazing and conscientious person with a passion to help that business person who is trying to bump his or her way through things.”

—Chris Wechner, www.TheUltimateAnalyst.com, Detroit, MI

“Loved this (HOW business webinar) series. I was so excited after the first class, and my thinking has shifted somewhat. I feel empowered in a way that I had not been before. It came just at the right time.”

—Scott Souchock, G.Scott Designworks, Seattle, WA

“Marcia, you rock. This was so great! I need to digest all this great info – a truly excellent presentation. I loved how you clarified things.”

—Sara Chapman, Art Squad Graphics, Seattle, WA

“I saw you present at HOW which left quite an impact on me. Your presentation resonated with me the most out of the entire conference.”


“I have seen all of your webinars through HOW and think you are brilliant. I want to attend your workshop, but since I am just graduating this month, don’t think I can swing it by then. However, if there is an additional date that I can start saving and planning for that would be awesome. Thank you!”
