Before working with Barbara, I was struggling to stay connected with my contacts via email. She helped me leverage my list by writing the most engaging emails that seemed to read their minds. They paid attention, got excited, and took action – signing up for my programs and offerings. She helped me turn my many “maybe” clients into “yes” clients that I love to work with!  She really proves what a difference the right person on the team can make.
