EricaRothman135Teri has the ability to be quiet and patient, while at the same time helping me move steadily forward and inviting new ways of seeing. 

When I was first starting to work with Teri, I was going through a challenging life transition and needed to grow my business quickly.

She helped me understand my roles as a business owner, taught me how to delegate more effectively, introduced new ways to market my services, and taught me how to center myself to have the best attitude towards my business.

She was so enthusiastic and supportive I had no choice but to be positive. Now I am seeing the fruits of our labors and my business is steadily growing.

MichaelNix135Working with Teri and Skillful Means provided the structure for me to create a clear vision for my emerging work. I am very pleased with the end result. If I look at where I started – with just an idea – this process gave me the courage and structure to create a business aligned with my passion and innate natural abilities.

Teri’s Skillful Means approach and ongoing support is a large part of both my business and personal life, which would both be lesser, if not for her part. For this, I am thankful.

Here's What More People are Saying about Working with Teri: 

Dean KunleinTeri and Skillful Means have helped me move from a stagnant place operating a seemingly reactive video production company to a more proactive and creative business and life focus. I am thankful that through my partnership with Teri/Skillful Means, I was able to secure a large contract with a long sought new client. Whether it's a sense of being “stuck, or being overwhelmed, Teri will help you realize your talents to build positive momentum.

Christine SpringerWhen I started working with Teri, I'd been in business for several months but only had one (discount) life coaching client. I had a blog with very limited content. I had no structured marketing plan and no idea of how I was going to attract clients without getting all sales-y.

In three months of work, Teri helped me develop packages and pricing in line with my industry, edited content for my website and helped me develop a marketing strategy that felt authentic and doable. Her guidance and feedback helped me attract my first client at my new pricing structure!

More than just the tangible results I have seen, I have been so happy with who I have become as a result of Teri's coaching. She is intuitive, tough and encouraging....a dynamite combination for any coach! As a coach myself, I have known many coaches and I think Teri ranks as one of the very best. Her unwavering support helped me work through the mental and emotional blocks that were keeping me from growing my business to it's full potential. I feel unstoppable now! I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Teri. She is amazing!

ChelseaRappel135Working with Teri and Skillful Means was a way to clear out what I was fearful of and help me move forward with a start-up business. She helped me focus on what was most important, while keeping a broader perspective of our vision. Skillful Means starts with the results up front to really see what you are creating before you start moving. Teri helped us to stop wasting time and energy. Within six months of working with her, we became financially sustainable.

TaraRitasu135Skillful Means helps with focus. It helped us cultivate positive thoughts and plans. One thing I ran up against is how hard it is to stay present and create a plan to follow to get you going without being too controlling. We found a way to create a momentum in our work to carry us instead of forcing things. Skillful Means helped us learn how to sustain ourselves individually in our work, with our guests and customers, in our physical environment, and in business. We saw how what we do each day affects all of this, learned how to integrate the needs of all these things and became a truly sustainable business. Skillful Means is a great way to be honest about what you are doing and see what is actually happening. Thank you Teri and Skillful Means!
