After working with Lilia for almost a year, I can honestly say that my entire business has changed in a big way. Lilia has both depth and breadth of business knowledge and experience. This background fills in the gaps of my own experience. So, at times, Lilia is not only performing tasks that have originated with me, but she also acts as a trusted advisor, giving me input and advice.
Before working with Lilia, if I travelled for business or pleasure, everything stopped. Now, business goes on as usual. Inquiries are answered, appointments are scheduled and marketing material goes out as planned. It’s seamless.
There have been several significant improvements I’ve seen since working with Lilia:
• Lilia helped me create and put into place systems that move potential clients effortlessly through the process of sign-up and payment. No inquiry falls through the cracks.
• I’m developing a marketing plan that makes sense for my business and has consistency. Lilia’s knowledge of marketing helps this process tremendously. Lilia has experience with many programs that allow my information to be put out on the web regularly, increasing my visibility on the internet.
• My peace of mind has increased radically! Although I’m definitely an entrepreneur who is used to working on my own a lot, I love knowing that Lilia is only a phone call or email away. Problems get resolved, questions get answered, and I can relax and do what I do best: create and deliver powerful weight loss programs to my clients.

Lilia is a huge influence on my productivity. Since we started working together on my current project, the pace of my work has increased 200% or more. Lilia keeps me focused, speaks frankly and sets reasonable expectations for me. We've talked at length about my business vision, my strengths and weaknesses, and what my company needs in order to survive and thrive.
Right now, our work is focused on developing my brand, my marketing strategy and tying together all the various pieces of my business that I have created BL (before Lilia). I am a first time small business owner, so, like many others who fit that description, I was working with good intent and lots of creativity, but my business lacked a consistent look, a solid message, and a plan. Lilia not only has the skill sets that I lack in organization, prioritization, analysis and foresight, but she also takes an interest in what I am doing. She takes the success of my business and her work with me personally. This makes a big difference when I need an opinion or need a reality check. Wanting to do what I love and dream about is not enough. Action is what makes it happen. Lilia has helped me envision my goal, set the course of action (in order of priority) and has kept me on task. Things are getting done. My business is looking more like a business than a hobby every day. I've heard business gurus say, "Do what you do best, hire the rest." Lilia makes it possible to do what I do best.
I worked with Lilia before. She helped me get my e-zine off the ground. When I needed to get moving with my website, social networking, and building my client base, I knew she'd be able to help tremendously.
I've worked with two business coaches that I thought would help me turn my many ideas into business. They were great role models for how to be successful, but didn't help me with the nuts and bolts of "getting it done." Now, working with Lilia, I really am able to "Get It Done Now."
I want to thank Lilia for our fantastic time together.
On our first call I wasn’t sure what to expect, but by the end of the call I felt like we had known each other for years. Lilia is knowledgeable and presents herself in a way that challenges me to think bigger. Thanks to her I have clarity and focus to go forward with.
As a first time author who thought that writing the book was hard, the marketing even harder. Before working with you, I didn’t feel focused. I had so many thoughts and options and I kept jumping from one to the next and was feeling frustrated with no clear plan of action. Then after our calls and discussing each option, I now have four areas that I am concentrating on to market myself and the book.
The three most significant improvements in my marketing strategy, thanks to you and your system are:
1. I have a social media plan – Facebook, Linked In and Twitter
2. I have participated in events with a win-win solution (i.e. charity and business events)
3. Each call was an exploration of marketing pie / product funnel to determine my plan of action for the future

Working with Lilia really helped me to see a way out of what was a very frustrating time for me. I had recently become very clear about expanding my business, and I wanted to do it in a big way. I was full of great ideas and potential projects, but I didn't know how to make it all happen. With Lilia's help, I was able to craft a plan with much needed structure and a timeline for the implementation. She also helped me to identify opportunities for outsourcing to help the project run more smoothly.
I was so focused on the details and I was overwhelmed by the task at hand. Then, as we began to work through the process, it became clear that the project could be addressed in stages.
For my children's wellness curriculum project, I have:
* Generated a comprehensive view of the entire process.
* Identified all the major components and players.
Crafted a plan for follow up and follow through to ensure success
I truly appreciated your commitment to our weekly phone sessions where you pushed, urged, encouraged, suggested ways for me to move forward with my Outlook book content, publishing Qs, etc., etc.
What made me want to work with you was frustration that I wanted to get the book done, but not progressing consistently and quickly.
I wanted you to be a motivator and resource provider. You did that completely.
