2021 Find Calm Here Client Testimonials

GuruNischan, host of The PlayGround

“Deb was beyond helpful in bringing CALM to what felt like a whirlwind process of creating my online community on the MN. She’s gone above and beyond my initial coaching session with her by spending extra time with me, making sure my questions were answered, following up diligently, sharing resources with me, and so much more. With her help, I felt like I had solid ground beneath me to launch my course and community confidently. Her sweet presence is in itself calming, and supportive. She reassured me that I am on track and know how to “do this”. She navigated my questions, slowed me down, and helped me gain crystal clear clarity on how to proceed in a way that worked for me. Her knowledge of the MN is brilliant, but her heart is what makes all the difference. Thank you, Deb, you are a gift that keeps on giving and your support is invaluable.” — GuruNischan, host of The PlayGround

Tiana Clark, Host of My Driver’s Seat

“One of the things I love best about Deb is that she personifies her motto, “Find Calm Here.” When she was referred to me, I was overwhelmed with the sheer volume of work needed to launch my community. She took control of the situation, as a seasoned senior project manager, focused on the low-hanging fruit that needed to be prioritized, and rolled up her sleeves, and helped where needed. As a result, everything was accomplished AHEAD of the deadline. Furthermore, she had a sense of ownership, which cannot be understated. At one point, she offered to work on part of the project (that I estimated would take hours) so I could go pick my daughter up from school. By the time I returned home, she had already completed the ask! It made me feel very CALM. I highly recommend Deb if you’re looking to launch a community and need expertise, project support, strategy, and guidance.” — Tiana Clark, Host of My Driver’s Seat
