"A year and a half later, I still refer back to something you taught me!"
I wanted to express my sincere thanks for all you do for us mompreneurs. Your coaching guides and Mastery program were a great help, to focus my thoughts and creativity on just who I want to reach out to and how I want to do that. Your suggestion to write a letter to myself from God was pivotal for me. I still refer back to that letter, a year and a half later, to refocus and remind myself of God's purpose for me. It is highlighted in many places!
"I Feel Like I Have The Best Business Partner In the World!"
Theresa has been an amazing help in getting me started in my business. I have been wanting to follow my passion for a long time but I never had the nerve to take the steps to make it happen until Theresa gave me direction. By helping me to take the first step and actually plan an event, she gently pushed me to take the leap. She encouraged me to pick a day and once the invites were sent out, there was no turning back! She is always accessible to read over materials and she is incredibly talented in providing suggestions that make my writings much more professional and engaging. Not only that, she knows what it means to be a mom juggling a million different things. I seriously do not know how I would have done any of it without her and now I'm so excited about the possibilities for my business--knowing that she's there to continue to help me makes me feel like I have the best business partner in the world. Theresa is truly a gifted business coach, from her knowledge about all aspects of business to her unique personality that is encouraging and empowering, she is an invaluable resources for mom entrepreneurs and I feel blessed to have her on my side!

"Theresa brings collaboration, expertise and motivation to my wife and her business!"
My wife Kelly has been working with Theresa for over 3 years. While I was originally skeptical as to the value of any coaching services I soon realized my misunderstanding. I have always worked within an organization. One thing that is taken for granted in any organization is the opportunity to get input from other knowledgeable people and to see how an idea can change through collaboration. Theresa adds that source of good ideas and collaboration to Kelly’s business and brings significant knowledge and experience in so many areas.
The softer side of Theresa’s coaching that cannot be overlooked is that of motivation. Have you ever tried to motivate your wife to greater business success by telling her exactly how she should solve a problem? I have . . . it doesn’t work very well. However, my experience with Kelly and Theresa has been that Theresa is able to provide encouragement and motivation to Kelly that has so much more impact to her operations than I am able to provide. Theresa intimately understands the challenges that women entrepreneurs face. This understanding and accountability help her cut through the day to day busy work and focus on the areas that really help someone grow their business. I can’t recommend Theresa highly enough. Her services are not free, but they have value far beyond their cost.

"I was all over the place in my business. But now I have clarity and direction."
I actually interviewed three different coaches before deciding to work with Theresa. I chose her because she offered the most complete package for the most affordable price. I wanted group and private coaching with a coaching program that I could follow. I like steps and her module is a road map. I was all over the place in my business. As Theresa would call it, I was in overwhelm and paralyzed. I needed clarity and direction and I was unable to do that on my own. I am a coach myself so I know the importance of having a coach.
After working with Theresa and the group of ladies in the program I began to see some light! It was great having a one to one coaching call, a sisterhood call and a mastermind call. I was also able to use the modules and follow the guidelines which helped me to grow and discern what I wanted to really do, what was my passion, and who I wanted to work with and most importantly, who I didn't want to work with. I love the connection on the Facebook page and being able to email Theresa or the other sisterhood ladies is such a blessing.
I was able to travel to VA Beach for the mastermind retreat! Having a whole day with Theresa and the other ladies of the group was so beneficial to me. The hotel was beautiful and the set up was warm and allowed for a safe environment to share and really dig deep into your area of blockage. I received clarity and direction. Theresa is foremost the best choice for me because she loves God first in her life and then family. She teaches you how to balance between both worlds! I am starting to make money in my business now and I know I will be successful!
We launched our business in four months with Theresa's help!
As a Christian we know there are no coincidences. God has his divine hand on everything, and connecting to Theresa was exactly who we needed to guide my mom and me as we started our faith-based business! From our first call we realized just how much we needed Theresa and her knowledge and expertise as we began the journey of entrepreneurship. Especially since my background is in education and my mom has a nursing background, her business mindset was the missing piece we needed .Theresa's suggestions and feedback on our progress/ideas were spot-on, she was very flexible with our schedule, and the accountability she provided us helped us to launch our business in four months! But the best part was the comfort of knowing she was a fellow Christian and to be able to discuss our faith openly was such a blessing!

"Being a stay-at-home-mompreneur can be pretty intimidating, overwhelming, and isolating. As a brand new business owner, I joined the Christian Mompreneur Sisterhood because I really resonated with Theresa's mission of connecting with like-minded women who are building business on the foundational values of faith and family. It's been a wonderful community to bounce ideas off of, give and receive encouragement and support, and celebrate each other's successes!"
“Theresa is a gem! As a business owner you don’t want to have the feeling of being ‘stuck’ but that is where I was when I met Theresa and right away we connected. In just two sessions she helped me get ‘unstuck’ and move my business to the next level.
“She is patient and kind and very creative and has the ability to pull from your conversation the exact feeling you want to convey when it comes to marketing and get the words down on paper. I highly recommend her and all of her work. She is a one of a kind! We are still in touch and have a great business connection.”

In the last month I generated more than $5,000 in new revenue!
I am happy to report that things are going well financially. In the last month I generated more than 5K in new revenue! Having someone encourage me to make decisions and put structure in place is what I’ve really needed!
The weekly planning tool is amazing! It’s saving my sanity and helping me make different judgment calls in situations where I might have felt pressured into something. Even with a full plate this week, I still feel more sane just because I did the work on it this week. These have become non-negotiable parts of my weekly routine, and I swear, have been the key to me handling weeks that would have put me over the edge in the past into nervous breakdown mode. But now I can look situations in the eye and deal with them before they become last minute logistical nightmares.
Thanks again, Theresa, for all your help; I truly feel like without your program I would have burned out and walked away from the work I feel so passionate about and enjoy. Having the freedom to be imperfect and rely more upon the grace of God has been such a gift. And my husband has noticed a difference as well. We are communicating more and feel like more of a team. His excitement about my business is growing too! I really appreciate your help, encouragement and insight.
"The Christian Mompreneur Mastermind program was a true blessing to me and my business!"
Being new to the WAHM world when I began the program, I was greatly looking forward to guidance and support on navigating my way on this new path set before me. I loved everything about the program – from the practical tools such as the worksheets and lessons provided, accountability partners to keep you on track and solicit suggestions, and the helpful support & feedback from other group members which led to friendships. I enjoyed gaining rich knowledge from the expert guest calls, learning about everyone's businesses on the member calls, and being able to share and gain insight in the members’ forum. Best of all, Theresa gives invaluable coaching advice! She is in your corner, understands the challenges of being a mompreneur, and provides a road map for both business & family success. I appreciated how Theresa gave me practical and attainable goals for my business that I could implement. I eagerly looked forward to each lesson module and felt better equipped on my new journey after completing the program. I felt sad when the program ended but I can always revisit my notebook filled with ideas, goals, and priceless notes!
“Theresa, the Virtual Business Summit you hosted far exceeded my expectations."
I left motivated, energized, and inspired. I gleaned at least a hundred tips, tricks, and take-a-ways that I intend to weave into my business practices. Your kickoff session was spot-on and set the stage for the rest of the Summit. The Special Bonus offers from the presenters were a great perk. I picked up several additional resources afterwards and registered for a teleseminar with Lori Bell. As a thank you, Lori contacted me directly. How cool is that!
You definitely have insight and know what momprenuers need. You went above and beyond and I am most appreciative.
“I Wasn’t Sure if I was Ready to Invest”
I had an idea for a business floating around in my head for quite some time when I happened to find Theresa's website. I was intrigued by what she had to say about the Christian Mompreneur Mastery Program and promoting a way to balance all of the things that are important to me - Faith, Family and Business. To be honest though, just starting out with an idea and no income yet, I wasn't sure if I was ready to invest in the program. But, I took a leap of faith and joined the Christian Mompreneur Mastery Program. It was truly one of the best moves I could have made to help me get my business off the ground.
After all I have learned and all of the resources Theresa gave me to continue to use in my business, I know that I made a great investment. I know that my business will always benefit from being in the Christian Mompreneur Mastery Program and I definitely would not have made the progress that I did in the time that I did had I not been in the program.
Being a homeschooling Mom presents unique challenges, but now I have tools to manage everything in an efficient way. I think one of the biggest changes in myself was that my confidence in what I was doing increased. I would highly recommend Theresa's programs to anyone who needs that extra something to get their business going. You won't be disappointed!
Virtues and Verses
"Thanks for the Valuable Insight with No Pressure!"
When I hired Theresa to conduct a website evaluation for me, I knew I was
asking her to critique ‘my baby’ – the site I had created myself! So I was a little
nervous but I knew I would value her input. I also knew I had limitations with
the program I chose and my own ability to spend time on it while taking care
of my five kids. But I felt very comfortable with Theresa’s open and honest
way of communicating. Her assessment of the website and suggestions for
improvement truly helped me shift my thinking. Her insight was eye opening
and valuable – yet she didn’t put pressure on me to change everything right
now! Theresa juggles work and life just the way I do – and it was very reassuring
to work with her.

"My time with Theresa was invaluable."
I was stuck in a rut working in my dance studio business rather than on it and my family life was suffering. With her guidance in my one on one coaching, I was able to publish an ebook to offer potential clients and am in the process of developing a complimentary business to further educate students and their families. Her patient and encouraging demeanor gave me the courage to see beyond the day to day and see a bright new future.
"Working with Theresa took the 'ugggh' out of the business side of my business."
What inspires me about my business is NOT the left brain details, the numbers, etc. Working with Theresa provided me with an entirely new tool box and took the 'ugggh' out of the business side of my business. You have to know your strengths and weaknesses and seek out mentors to help supplement your efforts. Theresa is a treasure!
"The connections of the Christian Mompreneur Mastermind program have been a catalyst for my success!"
It helps to realize that I am not alone – as a wife, mom, Christian and entrepreneur. I believe the connections of the Christian Mompreneur Mastermind program have been a catalyst for my success!

"Step by Step Instructions Made it Easy for Me!"
The step-by-step instructions in the Business Building Bootcamp were fantastic! I can get overwhelmed with web marketing and social media technology, but I know it’s important to learn for my business. Theresa has a way of presenting all this complex information in a simple format so that I can follow it and implement it easily.
Theresa understands the delicate balance of running (starting) a business and being a Mom. I attended the retreat to meet other Christian Mom entrepreneurs, get feedback on my product from a Mom-perspective, as well as, a business perspective. It was truly a gift.
And working with Theresa as a copywriter is amazing. She has the unique ability to get to the heart of what I want to say and to write exactly what I would have said if I knew how to get it across concisely and effectively.
"I Have a Plan and a Structure Now!"
The Christian Mompreneur Mastermind provided a structure to guide me in creating a more focused plan of attack for my business that still allowed for the flexibility of running my home and family. The biggest benefit for me was clarity! Theresa’s program really helped me sort the myriad of thoughts, plans, conflicting desires and guilt that come with starting a business from home when you're a Mom. It helped me set my priorities so I know how I want to spend my business time, and can really enjoy my time with my son more now. I walked into the program knowing that the only thing holding me back was me. I vaguely knew what I had to do, but had difficulty identifying HOW to structure my life to actually accomplish it. Now I feel like I have a plan and a structure that will allow me to act on all the great ideas I have. I got the support and feedback that I was looking for from others who have gone before me! I also gained more confidence and trust with regards to the fact that I can be successful in my business.
“From Idea to Income in Just 12 Weeks!”
Theresa helped me get my business off the ground! The program literally catapulted me forward from "zero to 60"... When I started the mastermind I had an idea – I knew what I wanted to do and had been thinking about it for a long time. During our 12 weeks together, she helped take me from idea, to website, to full-blown business! I have paying customers and have been featured in the local news media. I never would have taken so many concrete steps in such short time...
"I’ve Been in Business a While and I Still Learned New Things to Apply to My Business!"
Before I took the Business Building Bootcamp program I was feeling scattered and overwhelmed in my business. Theresa’s system made it easy to figure out my next step so I could be more productive. And even though I have been in business a while, I was amazed at how many new things I learned and was able to immediately apply to my business.
"I Will Be Changing my Business Model After Participating in this Program!"
I believe this program was exactly what I needed, when I needed it. Thank you. It was my first baby step in the right direction.
The reason I joined was because I recognized a need to slow down and take time to reflect and create. This program helped me do that. I loved my moments of peace of mind and clarity!
Plus my laser coaching was awesome! I have lots of work to do on my own - using the tools that I now have in front of me. I love your ideas on how to monetize my website and capitalize on what gifts God has given me.
I would recommend The Christian Mompreneur Mastermind to any faith-filled entrepreneur and mother who may need to focus or reflect on what she is creating.
“She genuinely cares. She’s real.”
Thanks to the mastermind program and Theresa's encouragement, I did one of the toughest things I've ever had to do in my life. There was no other way…it had to be done in order for me to move forward, and she gave me the courage and support to do it.
If you’re not sure about what you’re doing. You’re just afraid, insecure. She’ll definitely put you on the right track. She’ll be honest with you. She’ll steer you in the direction that you need to go in. Theresa’s a special person. She just has this intuitive nature. She seems to know what you need and she can pull it out of you. And I believe what she says. She’s believable and she’s real. She cares about women making it , which is rare today to find someone. She genuinely cares. She’s real.
“I’m Making More Money and Managing My Time!”
I've been in business several years and have been blessed with incredible opportunities for publicity and growth. But it wasn't until I worked with Theresa through the Christian Mompreneur Mastermind program that I began to experience a real shift in WHO I work with and HOW I work. Theresa's guidance during our laser coaching session was invaluable! I immediately implemented the strategies we discussed and as a result, I’m working with fewer clients, making more money, delegating tasks and managing my time more effectively so I can enjoy my life and my work.
