Testimonials (6)

Stacey Schimmelman, Home Organization Consultant | eWomenNetwork, Portland, Oregon

“I first met Tara Truax when she spoke at a local networking event about how to keep the momentum going in your business. Being a small business owner myself, I was very impressed by her presentation and I immediately signed up for a session with her. During the 45 minute session Tara gave me some very helpful tips that I am successfully using today to move forward! Since my session with Tara I am excited about the progress I have made with my business and am completing my 3 goals per day! Thank you Tara!”

Josh Brooks, Denturist | PremierCare Dental

“Working with Tara was a truly inspiring experience. We have started to implement many of the marketing changed Tara recommended. Her instructions were not cut and paste with generalities. The marketing sheets she uses are going to be used for all of our marketing. She makes you think of the best way to reach your IDEAL patient. Not the broad spectrum of patients who are not always what we desires. She touches in other areas of business that can help simplify and guide your time. I would recommend Tara to those that are ready to make right decision for their businesses.”

Karen Christensen, Certified Hypnotist, Reiki Master | Karen's Intention

“Tara is someone with expertise to find ways of improving your business. Her information and advice in one session started me to enlarge my business. I am so glad I consulted with Tara. She tells you things you can start that day when you consult with her. With me, who did I want to appeal to in my web-site? So, I began to change my web-site that day. It gets get better everyday.“

Lydia Rapidah, Event Planning Expert | GuGuly!

“I highly recommend Tara as a business mentor. She is very professional and asked a lot of questions that really forced me to look and analyze my business. Thanks, Tara!”

Ron Lane, Owner, Wedding Officiant | The Marriage Lane

“Tara’s coaching methods are full of PEP- precise, empathetic, and professional. She asked me pointed questions that forced me to look deeper into the foundational principles of my business. What I appreciated the most is how much she took great concern and interest into the immediate direction and future success of my business. Thanks Tara!”

Penelope Bell, Counselor | Simply a Moment

“I have struggled for many years to find the right language to describe what I do in a way that speaks to the clients I serve. After working with Tara I now have a system for copy writing that is compelling and easy to replicate! I know I will use the marketing tools and processes she taught me for the rest of my business life. So. Much. Easier. I wish I had had the help 25 years ago when I started this journey. Save yourself time, grief and frustration and get help from Tara now!”
