Testimonials-OLD

“Before I hired Cristi, I knew we had something completely different to offer from other weight loss companies but I hadn’t been able to put my finger on how to really articulate that in my marketing. After a short 90 minute conversation with Cristi, she helped me see who my ‘true’ target market really was and guided me on how to explain what we do as a business in a way that was authentically different and directly related to the needs of our target market. I made some changes to our website and the response has been amazing! In one short month, I’m already seeing measurable results! I am attracting more ideal clients than ever before! Cristi was well worth the investment and I have already recommended her to friends – thanks Cristi!” Kelly Spec, Registered Dietitian, Owner, Spectrum Nutrition Centre, kelly.spec@spectrumnutrition.ca
Cristi,Thank you for your generous and insightful service. I'm very happy with our session, it was totally worth the expense. I now have
clarification of what is unique to me.
We don’t know how unique we are,
but we have you to identify it. You certainly have found your
groove in the world. Thank you. Janon Hamel, MPA, ACC Certified Coach www.hamelcoaching.com
Cristi truly knows how to discover and market the genius in you. After your first meeting with Cristi you will see how to differentiate and position yourself as an expert for your industry. I recommend Cristi to anyone starting a new business and seeking to find a solid vision, or trying to re-define what their business means to them." Matt Astifan
Cristi is the Killer-App for any business. The BEST investment I made for my new business in 2011. Breakthroughs, Powerful Shifts and Clarity. I can honestly say working with Cristi before my official launch was the best investment I made in 2011. It saved me a ton of money having to redo my website, redo my content, and redo my marketing approach. Having Cristi’s session prior to launching my business gave me a lot of clarity about my pitch, about my business and about myself. Since our D4D call I’ve had 10 meetings and am working with 5 new clients because of the gift Cristi gave me - when I got to my meetings I felt clear and concise. What Cristi offers is SO effective and impactful, I want to tell everyone. Especially anyone who is about to waste more money on "same old same old" marketing crap. Cristi truly exceeded my expectations and delivered such strong, tangible take-aways. I tell people to Sign Up Now, thank me later! - David Savage, www.essentialhospitalitysystems.com
“After working with Cristi, I am finally clear on how to answer the question: “So what do you?” My company operates in the account and finance world…which can be very difficult to differentiate in. Before I worked with Cristi I wasn’t sure how to communicate to potential clients or even who my ideal clients were. Now that I have worked with Cristi I feel clear. I have direction, I know the unique value I provide and I can describe it in a way that attracts my ideal clients. Cristi nailed it for me in terms of where I wanted to focus my business and which direction I wanted to take…in just 2 hours. -Doreen Tarampi, President, www.venturafinancial.ca

I was working for a while trying to identify how my ideal clients think and how I can use it in my marketing but couldn't get to the core of it. Now I see it clear. It is so energizing.

After working with Cristi, we have been busier in this first quarter than we have ever been! We have increased sales revenues and have more referral clients than ever.

"Cristi and I worked together through her "Digging for Differentiators" process. Cristi is spectacular at finding and picking up on the important threads of information that I didn't even see as important about myself, and hence, my business! Her process added value to my business and renewed my passion for the business by helping me to see the value that I add to my clients. If you are undecided about what Cristi can do for you, take the plunge, you will be surprised at how invigorating this important "work" can be. Colin H. Trotter, Freedom 55 Financial
"Wow!  I am blown away by working with Cristi.  Although I do it powerfully for my clients, I had trouble expressing what makes me different from all the other “fill your holistic practice” experts.  In our short session together, Cristi nailed what’s special about me and how to differentiate myself.  Her process is so unique and so spot on.  I now feel more confident about what to say so that my ideal clients can’t wait to work with me.      Chen Yen, Cha Ching Specialist for Holistic Practitioners  .

"Before working with Cristi, our greatest challenge was how to clearly outline the value of our services to potential clients. We have spent time and money on varied marketing efforts with little success. Cristi gave us a new perspective on how we should deliver ourselves on our website. The time spent with Cristi was really valuable."      Jane Boddy & Pat Miller, Founders, Fairweather Crusies & Events Ltd.
"Thanks Cristi, the “Digging for Differentiators” call was a great process and has completely inspired me to move forward and create something that really reflects me!"      Renee Wilkins, Investors Group
"Thank you again for a great Digging for Differentiators call. I just wanted to add how amazing it is to work with someone who is so dialed in and passionate about what they do. You have obviously found your calling! I read a Deepak Chopra book where he says our only job in life is to find our unique gift, the one thing we do better than anyone else in this world and then ask ourselves how we serve others using this unique talent. I think you nailed it! "      Melanie, http://www.burkeandhair.com/
