Keep in Mind: Success takes effort. These are all real people doing great work. I have coached all of my clients through fear, overwhelm and a myriad of other challenges on their way to success. You and your business are different, therefore, if we work together, what we focus on may be different and your results may be different. They did the work and were brave enough to face their barriers and work through them to succeed. While we believe everything that has been shared below is true, we have not independently verified the results they’ve shared; and no one was compensated in any way for what they have shared. Enjoy!
“…She entered my life at a very pivotal and difficult time in my business. I was so exhausted and fed up not getting the kind of results I wanted or not making the kind of impact I wanted to make and serve the kind of people that I wanted to serve. I worked with Stephanie. She got me very clear and specific when I was filled with confusion and not sure what direction to go.
She put this vision in front of me to help me see that I could achieve what I really had an intention around. It had always felt like a pipe dream or a far out dream that I could possibly, maybe achieve at some point in my life; but she actually got very concrete. She got very intentional. She got very clear about how I could start envisioning this dream, achieving this specific outcome that I wanted to achieve and make the exact amount of money that I wanted to achieve. She made me write it down. She made me see it in front of me, but what's blowing my mind is this was five months ago and I am close to achieving it!
I am seeing a number in my bank account that I have never seen before, I am serving four times as many clients and I'm well on my way to achieving the financial freedom that I set out to achieve or that I wanted when I was in that space of confusion and frustration.” Sonali Fiske – Leadership for Women of Color leaders, activists & speakers [Watch Video or Read more…]
“Through our work together, the number of sales conversations I have had has exploded! My sales are already surpassing any of my past records. And I am at peace with the flow of possibility.
Coming from corporate, I found that I was trying to fit everyone else’s mode of work and that physically was exhausting and was emotionally draining. It wasn’t good business. Giving myself permission to truly do business my way, has had phenomenal results for my clients. Who knew? Now, I feel like I’m running my business, Steph has ways of helping me see things bigger, and I look forward to our calls from a “help keep my head and heart in the right direction” and I really see that I have the answers inside me. Now, mind you, her short cuts are appreciated!
And my family is so thankful for it. I can truly be an engaged wife and mom again. No more blurred boundaries and guilt over “Should I be working more? Should I be working harder?” My husband raves about my transformation from working with Steph. He’s so happy to have his kick-ass wife back. And money was always such a tough conversation for us and now it makes for great date night conversation. I never thought that would happen unless I went back to having a job.” Emilie Shoop – Shoop TC [Read more…]
“I was able to get more done in the first three months of working with her than I had been able to do on my own the previous three years and I increased my fees (in some instances up 300%!)
Through Stephanie’s belief in me I began to claim and own my brilliance. I’m clear about who my clients are and how I can best serve them. We did a lot of work on the “inner Lisa” so I can play on a bigger stage. She continued to stretch me to envision more for myself – and thus more for my clients. I’m now stepping into this vision.
Working with Stephanie is an illuminating experience. Often, she anticipated my needs before I did. I can’t count the number of emails that “magically” hit my inbox with encouraging messages from her – just when I needed it. Or a message clarifying something we had spoken about in our session – that she fleshed out a bit more, before I even realized I wanted more information.” Lisa Mallis – Impactive Strategies [Watch Video or Read more…]
“Like many hard-driving entrepreneurs, I am filled with countless ideas. However, without clarity, those ideas can become more of a liability than an asset. In working with Stephanie Calahan, I become clear on who I was, why my work mattered, and on how I could deliver it effectively and efficiently to the marketplace. Stephanie will encourage you to believe in yourself, in your dream; yet challenge you to become who you were created to be. If you are looking for clarity, direction, and practical ways to maximize yourself and your business, you owe it to yourself to speak with Stephanie. She will unlock the brilliance inside of you.” Brent Kelly – VP, Executive Coach & Speaker, Sitkins Group, Inc.
“Stephanie changed my life in one day. Through gentle, but firm inquiry she helped me realize how the cluttered look of my office mirrored the near-chaotic process with which I tackled every day activities. She listened, provided encouragement, prodded for understanding, and provided helpful and pertinent strategies that are still working today…Stephanie’s visit occurred five years ago.
I hold Stephanie in very high regard. I respect her strong sense of pro-activity and purpose. I admire her ability to understand and work with people. I am amazed by the professional network she has built. And I appreciate her direct and forthright approach.” ~ Kevin Seymour – ROE Schoolworks [Read more…]
“You have just the right balance of giving me the emotional and mental space I needed to do the work and absorb the process, but also kept everything consistently moving forward. My marketing materials have never looked better, my computer systems are functional,and my business processes are better every day.
I deeply appreciate your sensitivity, trustworthy, good-humored, patient help and teaching. You have just the right balance of giving me the emotional and mental space I needed to do the work and absorb the process, but also kept everything consistently moving forward. No easy task, especially as it was so easy for me to get re-overwhelmed at every possible step!” Marilyn O'Connor – MAK Development [Read more…]
“MY brain is AFIRE, sparkling with ideas on FINISHING what I've already started and expanding upon those to reach audiences that need the hope, common sense, insight and resources that only CAPITAL I can give them.
Enthusiasm for my life's work has returned in a controlled flood, passion is jockeying for new space in my heart, and my vision is clearer than a windshield after a dozen trips through the car wash. If you ran a PET scan of my brain, it would resemble a rainbow of colorful, organized file folders and bins that are finally at home after floating mindlessly for eons. And in the top basket is a neat overflow of “Change the world because it needs ME NOW!” Monica Vest Wheeler – Turning Empathy Into Action & Author [Read more…]
“Working with Stephanie and using the systems that she helped me implement has revolutionized my administrative operations. Stephanie was non-judgmental and patient throughout the entire process. My productivity has soared since working with her.” Dr. Gabriella Caldwell-Miller, PhD, LCPC – GMC Life Solutions
“Not only have I grown within myself, my business has grown, because this is one of those relationships that keeps giving. She pushes me to think in ways I’d never thought of thinking and gets me analyzing myself. Then there were introductions. I was totally blown away when Steph said she had recommended me to someone – and that someone has turned into two “someones” and I say to myself this is the way life is supposed to work. Steph believed in me. Steph believes in me.” Vikki Nichols-Baptiste – Could You Just and DoTERRA Essential Oils [Read more…]
“I've know Stephanie for years now. It took a moment of sheer desperation before I actually called on her for her professional skills.
Stephanie was absolutely fabulous. She started with and assessment to pinpoint where my systems were breaking down… She called it a miracle and that is exactly what it was. By the end of the day she had restored my sense of control… In that moment I knew that I would never be out of control of my office again and I owe it all to Stephanie and Calahan Solutions.” Joy Duling – A 25 Hour Day [Read more…]
“After our first meeting I was thankful for your vision of my business… You asked probing questions of what I did, the services I was providing, and where I wanted to go in the future…
I can see to profit from your services. It has resulted in greater productivity, fewer errors, and a much more comfortable work environment. It can be measured in dollars and cents since I am getting more done in less time, with fewer errors and frustrations. Your plan is working because I am able to maintain what you have put into place.” Linda Lambert – Lambert Designs [Read more…]
“Although I was apprehensive at first about changing my old habits, I can already see how much better this system will be. I cannot thank you enough for the tremendous amount of help you have been to me. My emotional well-being has been extremely stressed over the past few months, and the experience of working with you has given me such peace of mind, and the courage to face each new day with a positive attitude.Thanks for the encouragement!! I didn't notice a Ph.D. behind your name, but you certainly could be a psychologist! I'll say it again and again…………you are awesome!!” Lynn Worthington [Read more…]
“I was looking for advice and coaching as my business began to grow, I was drawn to Stephanie because she always seemed to be the voice of reason. Her guidance and counsel were always sound and because of her approachability, I felt very comfortable contacting her. Her knowledge and understanding is invaluable and she was able to lead me to the next step in taking my business to the next level. I was able to have the confidence to raise my fees by 30% and business is booming! As I implemented and followed through on her advice and suggestions, I was amazed at the results – and it was so easy!” Adonna Braly – Professional Organizer

“Stephanie L H Calahan I just wanted to say THANK YOU for challenging us to adopt new thinking. I think it is really easy to become complacent with what is already working … you are getting us to say “okay, while this FB platform works for us, is there a way to make the platform work better”.

I think you are amazing. Thank you.” Tracey Foulkes

“I listened to your session last week and it was like a fog lifted. I had 2 major “Ah-ha” moments. One was visibility blocks & the other was finding your niche. That spoke to me because I've been feeling aimless as a generalist in my field. Within the past week it struck me like a bolt of lightning what my niche should be. It was staring me in the face, I just couldn't see it until you taught me how. I'm ready to completely re-frame my business to focus on this. Thank you!” ~Emily Herwig

“I want you to know how much I appreciate everything you did to help the Christians in Business community by helping our members understand the difference between value based pricing and hourly pricing.
