I would like to thank you Lisa as before I connected with you I was feeling lost not knowing how to grow our business that I truly love. You have given me guidance to find what needed to change in our business. This is ongoing however we are so excited to implement the changes!

Catherine McInerny

I have worked with Kistin for over a year and her depth of knowledge via experience, and dedication to the betterment of others’ careers, has been profound. I am very humbled to have someone like Kistin in my network and am motivated by her and her efforts to build and nurture expansive networks of successful women. It is truly a pleasure to work alongside Kistin and learn from, and alongside her as I grow my business in financial advice. Kistin truly understands the benefits an expansive network of successful women can yield - many future dividends; and I am excited to be a part of it.

I am feeling energised with a clarity of purpose and a path forward which is a fantastic outcome from working with Jo! Her 'supportive provocateur' style has really worked for me. It is like knowing you have someone in your corner who completely 'has your back' while also pushing you to get out there and achieve what you set out to do...and more. Why not?! I can just hear her saying that...:) I leave our discussions with new concepts to ponder and a sense of pushing my aspirations beyond where I started. And there is just loads of practical, hands on advice along the way which is appreciated in a time of needing to make a lot of decisions. Most of all, the support feels like it comes from a very authentic place of giving in order to foster the success of others...
