What My Customers Are Saying

Yes, we get things DONE. But don't just take my word for it...

The Digital Dining Room is so helpful to me and my business. I love the support…the monthly calls with Tea are tailored to MY needs and our group offers ideas from other perspectives. Best money I’ve spent in a long time!

– Stacey Shanks, Yoga of Business

I’ve taken many marketing classes over the last few years and they were all great. The problem was I couldn’t take much action on all that I learned. I was missing some critical information that I needed before I could market myself and my business. I couldn’t for the life of me find the words to express my brilliance (something we all have.) How could I explain, in words, my special talents? And then it happened. Somehow I found my way to Tea, invested in her “Secret Sauce” program and finally began to find those words that had eluded me for such a long time. I found my own “recipe.” I’m still a work in progress and always will be, but Tea through her own unique method, showed me the right path to travel. I’m no longer confused and I’m so grateful.

– Nancy Meadows, Nancy Meadows Design

I was dreading working on my website…the thought of revamping and revising it made me uneasy. Then I met Tea. My experience working with Tea…has been nothing short of incredible…she taught me valuable writing and marketing skills that took my website copy from generic to amazing. Her insight and knowledge helped me create a dynamic, unique website that speaks to my clients. I highly recommend Tea!

– Kelli Proia, IP Made Simple

The WordChef is a standout amongst mentors. She teaches you to fish. She shares generously, offers wisdom, insight and actionable plans to help you reach your goals. Don’t know how to identify goals that will work for you? There’s guidance for that too. Tea, a gifted wordsmith, connects and creates supportive communities.

– Julia Hayes, Swanbourne Business Centre

I delightfully discovered Tea and her blog just little over a year ago. Wowzers! Her website is PACKED full of great information that is not only smart and practical, but easy to follow and implement on my own. She’s a consummate communicator, teacher and encourager. If you’re stuck in your marketing, let Tea help you get unstuck and pointed in the right direction.

– Colleen Conger, Think-Web-Go

Tea has helped me with my message by giving me solid guidelines and action items to get stuff done. She is not for the faint at heart and cracks a mean whip but it the most authentic person I know. Looking to hone your marketing efforts, the Word Chef is your gal.

– Lee Drozak, My Office Assistant

Tea will call you out if you’re not doing what you say you’re doing to make your business move forward. Tough love, I call it, and it’s just what I need to stay on track and focused with my marketing. Love working with her in the Digital Dining Room!

- Evelyn Kalinosky, Inner Affluence

Tea’s an amazing mentor, coach and all around awesome person. I’ve learned and accomplished more from participating in her programs than all of the others combined (and there’ve been many!!).
