Owner & Principal, Knowledge Advisory Group
The benefits that I’ve received as a small business owner through participation in the Peer Advisory Board and Rene’s direct coaching have been immeasurable. As an independent consultant, I spent my days (and let’s be honest, many of my evenings), trying to juggle the competing priorities for a growing business that I really loved. But I felt as though I wasn’t doing justice to my company, and frankly, I missed the energy of other people to brainstorm with, spark ideas, or solve problems. Since I started working with Focal Path, I’ve successfully transitioned from a solitary proprietor to a small business owner surrounded by a team of trusted employees, vendors, and advisors that help me get the job done for our clients. The insightful members of our Peer Advisory Board share their experiences with vulnerability, excitement and common understanding, often providing the encouragement I need to take risks that move my company forward. I rely heavily on their advice and support, both to celebrate successes and troubleshoot challenges. They also provide a much-needed reality check when I need assurance that other small business owners have similar experiences. Further, Rene’s wisdom and lessons from her successful business endeavors are delivered with directness, objectivity and compassion, which is an incredibly powerful combination that creates an impact. I am delighted to highly recommend Focal Path Coaching as a valuable partner for any small business with an eye on the next level!
