"Working with Karissa has been the primary force in getting me unstuck and moving forward in my business."
"Working with Karissa Schminky has been the primary force in getting me unstuck and moving forward in my business. In the past, my need for perfection has proved debilitating; rather than producing content, I agonized over minute details and spent all of my time working on projects–with nothing to show. Because I’m a prolific info-gatherer with a strong work ethic, it never occurred to me to hire a business coach. However, after losing all momentum due to the destructive habit of absorbing more than I produced, I was looking for a solution. With Karissa’s insight, knowledge and unending support, I have made crucial shifts, and I’m officially moving forward. Most importantly, I have regained the confidence to follow my passion wholeheartedly. My only regret is that I didn’t reach out sooner."
"She takes a very personal approach, helps you stay on track, and take forward moving action!"
"Karissa helped me immensely as I was beginning to develop my webpage and my social media presence. She takes a very personal approach, helps you stay on track and take forward moving action! I was able to meet my goals and drive the business forward thanks to her help! Hire her! Right now! You will not regret it!"
"Karissa was a godsend in the way that she tactfully put things in perspective, asked me questions that helped me realize what I actually wanted — and needed — to focus on in order to move forward, and introduced me to tons of useful tools that made the process of moving forward a lot easier."
"When I started my coaching sessions with Karissa, my business was up and running, but I felt as if there was SO MUCH that needed changing, improving, and doing that I didn’t know what to focus on. I would write down my to-do lists and come up with over 4 pages of bullet points! I was also second-guessing myself on a lot of things, and panicking about long-term marketing strategies when I should have been thinking about what would be helpful to me next week or next month. Karissa was a godsend in the way that she tactfully put things in perspective, asked me questions that helped me realize what I actually wanted — and needed — to focus on in order to move forward, and introduced me to tons of useful tools that made the process of moving forward a lot easier. What’s more, she also helped me get over and reframe some mindset issues that had been holding me back and undermining my confidence up until that point. After one session with her, I felt so much more grounded and motivated. After three sessions, I felt fantastic! I wholeheartedly recommend Karissa to all newbie entrepreneurs who are looking for someone to help them navigate the first few, crazy months of starting a business. Getting one-on-one personal attention really did make a huge difference to me — not only did I feel less alone and overwhelmed by the entrepreneurial journey, but I also felt like I was suddenly taking huge steps forward. Having someone on hand to help me deal with my personal doubts and dramas, and to help me come up with (manageable!) action plans helped me lock things in place far faster than if I’d continued to struggle along alone, and I definitely recommend Karissa’s services!"
