"I have owned a videography business since 2011. Over the past 8 years this business has grown into something larger than I could have ever imagined. Right now, we are fully booked for 2018, and I am so proud and happy to have reached a point in my business where I feel successful. The reason I decided to work with Kerri at this point in my business is because I need help to keep the momentum going. I am a mother of an incredible two year old girl, so I am always juggling the daily tasks of running a business and also being there for my family. I know these early years with young children go by so fast, and I don't want to miss out on precious moments with my daughter.
I would love to continue growing my business in a way that doesn't involve more of my own time. That is where Kerri comes in. She has been helping me prioritize growth areas and ideas, and help me complete tasks that I haven't had time to manage. For example, she has helped me organize my client management system in a way that is more useful and easier for me to navigate. She is already saving me so much time!
She has introduced a thoughtful strategy to further develop an amazing client experience, with the goal of increasing referrals. This includes unique thank you gifts and simple ways that I can stay in touch with past clients to source new business. She has also helped me create a vendor communication system which will help expand the network of other industry professionals referring us business. Currently she's also hands-on in managing my social media accounts. This is an area that is crucial to the development of my business and one that I just don't have time for right now.
I am still in the beginning stages of working with Kerri, but she has already made a huge impact on my business. It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders just knowing that there is someone else so committed to helping me reach my goals."
Sean Collins, Founder/CEO
"I have known Kerri since 2013 when she joined one of my companies. I can't say enough great things about her, particularly from my perspective as a founder and business owner. As a cognitive science nerd, I have to say that her "executive function" mental faculties are off the charts. Literally.
And that isn't the half of it. Creativity, intelligence, poise under pressure, and authenticity all come to mind. I am twice her age and I find myself asking "what would Kerri do?" in business situations. She is a master of the new approach to business, a tasteful use of social media and promotion, and is just so dang cool.
You'd be insane not to hire her if, like me, you need to turn over some of the big stuff to someone you can trust, and often she will do it better than I can. I mean every word of that - you would be insane not to work with her."
Jamie Lynne Burgess
"I couldn't do it without Kerri. She doesn't just see my goals and hopes as I do - she sees beyond them, to potentialities and capabilities for myself and my business that I just couldn't see on my own. I can often be full of ideas, but Kerri trusts those ideas, and more importantly, has the vision to see them through. It adds immeasurable value to my life and my work. And everyone will tell you that she does all of this while being riotously funny, but I think what they really mean is that Kerri has time to make you laugh because she's got everything else under control. I will never forget watching Kerri sign a check to her wedding planner, in her wedding dress, with a glass of champagne in hand - she can do anything!
I would trust Kerri with any project no matter the size, and I am always grateful for her insight and her advice. She never fails to offer me motivation, capability, and control (and, of course, make me laugh)."

Jill Tracy, Owner
"I was extremely fortunate to have a very successful business from the start but because things took off pretty quickly and I wasn't prepared for it I hadn't set up a lot of processes or systems to ensure the success continued. I didn't have a client list or really much of any client tracking. I was incredibly overwhelmed about the idea of backtracking all of this but Kerri has been so instrumental in getting me organized so that I can continue to grow my business.
She has an endless amount of business knowledge, particularly around how to bring a business to the next level. She is extremely organized and incredibly patient (when I continue to tell her I have none of the info she is requesting). She has truly been a life (and business) saver!"

"It's hard to put into words the value that Kerri has brought to my business. At first, it was hard to imagine involving someone so closely with my business - it took years to get to where I was and the thought of trusting my business with anyone was, frankly, scary. From day one, Kerri made me feel completely comfortable, taking the time to learn my business and how it operates. Using this information, she created a plan that didn't require "starting from scratch" as I had originally feared, but rather one that built upon what I already had in place.
Over the last 6 months of formally working together, her guidance has helped me work more efficiently and stay organized, putting a clear strategy in place for execution. I can now focus on the aspects of my business that I love, like interacting with my clients, knowing that Kerri is helping behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly while we continue to grow. I'll beat several personal records this year as part of this work and I'm excited to see where Kerri will take me from here!"
