Experience the Benefits of One-on-One Coaching with Tammy

Dear Tammy, Just a quick pause to tell you how I valued the two hours I spent with you to discuss my memoir..... (had you all to myself!!!) Wanted to tell you how much It meant, encouraging me to build on my thoughts of how "life's ironies" have contributed to my success in life. Your suggestions to build on this theme throughout my story, immediately released me to do exactly that. Additionally, a piece I recently wrote concerning this and read to you because I wasn't sure where it belonged, you cleared the air and suggested it should be the final chapter, as it reflected my concluding thoughts, a summarizing statement acknowledging the empowerment of life's lessons ... Many thanks to you. Sincerely, Joan Suter

"Because of Tammy I have found confidence in my writing and feel blessed to be honored in such a way. I have found my voice. I have found freedom! I recommend anyone for whatever reason to expand their life and sign up for her writing workshops or classes. You'll be amazed at how good you are and how everyone has a story worth telling. Sign up and set your voice free!"
Wendy Price, Palm Desert, CA
