"I was put at ease right away with Deanna’s style of coaching. She helped me break things down into manageable steps and I am no longer afraid of entrepreneurship, but rather just excited and focused. She was very easy to talk to and open up to.” 

Kimberly Fernet, Baked in Saskatoon


Do you know you're overwhelmed with time and drained energy, never ending tasks, competing priorities, and worried when and how to put out marketing that's respectful and welcomed?

If you have wondered how much more you could accomplish if only there was someone to:

  • help you sort out the big stuff,
  • be a confidential sounding board for your unique challenges, and
  • keep you accountable on track,

... then it’s worth checking out private coaching. It's not just for sports jocks.

After working with a skilled coach and having strong support, imagine what your life will look like.

  • With your stuff sorted out, confusion and weight will be off your shoulders and you’ll have more clarity to focus on the important things.
  • With a safe and skilled sounding board, you’ll be able to think and feel your way to your best decisions that align with you and where you want to go.
  • With being held accountable, you’ll be able to get done so much more of the stuff that matters and moves you ahead, while letting go of the busy-work that drains your energy and robs you of time.

With all of that, you can breathe again. Move forward again. See yourself differently, feel your successes, and confidently build the life you want.

"I have come to realize that even though I can do a pretty good job on my own, a good coach adds so much more value than even just talking things out with a friend. Deanna’s excellent questions and insights often led to my thought processes being challenged, which allowed me to break out of my own box. I have now experienced coaching with a number of different coaches and none of them compare to Deanna.”
