Johanna’s Success Story

When I got your e-mail about this class, I was at the 10 year burn-out mark in my business. I’d been doing it all myself and had no more joy in my work. Combined with the health issues, it seemed like I should quit. Thank goodness I didn’t !!!!

You’ve inspired, prodded, encouraged, celebrated with me and all the others, and my business is thriving. I began to take my own needs seriously, and to shift my priorities. And here I am, 6 months later, with a full calendar, increased rates, increased income, and a renewed sense of passion about why I do what I do.

The shear depth and breadth of this course is phenomenal. Some of this I knew, had read, or had heard before, but this course put it all together in a way that made sense from start to finish. It was laid out in an easy to understand way, and proceeded at a reasonable pace. The weekly modules were thought-provoking and challenging.

Even better were the webinars. Often I would think I hadn’t done enough work, or hadn’t completed the assignment, or didn’t know enough to be able to share. Then the break-outs would turn that thinking around. Almost always, I would discover some hidden truth and would leave inspired to take action.

I’ve been singing your praises to everyone about how transformative this class has been for me and my business.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,


Myra’s Success Story

As a Pilates instructor of 15 years, I have been fortunate that all my clients came through word-of-mouth. As a result, my efforts to create an online presence were halfhearted at best. I wanted to expand my marketing efforts and client base; and I knew I needed some support.

MicroBusiness Mastery far surpassed my expectations. I was impressed by the instructors and pleased with the impact the course had on moving me forward in my own business.

Bonnie and Eliza were always excited about the course and their enthusiasm was contagious. I especially liked that they participated in curriculum exercises. They modeled how to deal with frustration and setbacks thoughtfully and with a sense of humor. Their encouragement and positive feedback inspired us to action!

This program has pushed me to upgrade my business on several fronts:

I hired a graphic artist to help create a logo and tagline to better reflect my business values and vision. My webpage is in process. My social media involvement is stronger and my support network is expanding as a result. I’ve researched fees and marketing materials of my competition and I have raised my fees. And best of all, when I spruced up my studio one client remarked, “It looks more like a studio!”

I am so happy that I participated in MIcroBusiness Mastery. I am now confident that I can build the business that I’ve imagined. This course is a must for anyone ready to take their business to the next level.

Deborah’s Success Story

Thank goodness for the MicroBusiness Mastery program: it gave me the motivation to get things done. As a perfectionist, I can deliberate endlessly; this course offered the content and community to help me set goals and achieve them. At the end of the course, I have systems in place as well as long-range plans, and my second website is about to go live!

Thank you, Bonnie and Eliza, for creating a safe place in which to experiment, seek input, offer feedback, and grow!

Virginia’s Success Story

For the past eleven years as a Brain Gym® instructor and reading teacher, I have been helping students reach their full potential through intentional movement. Working in a home office, it’s easy to become distracted with other things I need to do. Not so good for follow-through!

MicroBusiness Mastery has given me the organizational tools I’ve needed to accomplish my goals. I’ve developed a business overview, with detailed plans for each day, week, month, and year. These hold me accountable. As a result, I am much more efficient in all aspects of the business. I’ve become confident about moving forward with the business I began those eleven years ago.

It has always been my habit to put work before nearly everything else. MicroBusiness Mastery has helped me think about where I want to be with my business and my life in 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years. I now know that I value my social, emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being even more than my business growth. What a gift!

Bonnie Hershey and Eliza Bergeson are enthusiastic, cheerful, prompt, efficient, and deliver more than they promise. They are great models for what it is to be a life-long learner and entrepreneur as well as how to run a business. They have wonderful hearts!
