"I Increased My Income By 150%.....and Reduced My Time By 25%"
I’m so blessed to have Nafissa as my mentor. Before working with her I was challenged with growing my business and my income. I couldn’t see how I could possibly make it all come together.
Nafissa helped me to see how I could organize my business, making it easier to manager but more importantly she helped me become my own CEO, truly allowing me to grow my business. I increased my income by 150% in 9 months while reducing my time spent in my business by 25%, and have increased the amount of fun I am having substantially.
I recommend Nafissa to people that want help growing their business or even people who are starting a new business. She helps them develop the skills for success and once you know the steps to success you can do it anywhere.
Just do it! A business owner might think that they can’t afford the time or the money, but the investment pays off in huge percentages.

"The requests are beginning to roll in for paid work - at the fees I set"
Before working with Nafissa, I was just starting out in business. I was a good employee but knew nothing about running a business.
My income was nearly nothing.
In our work together, I learned how to connect with my purpose and create my authentic brand, and how to develop package offerings. There is so much more too. From valuing myself and my services to setting boundaries to how to market to tools and techniques.
I learned how to market myself and my business without feeling awkward and boastful, which I hate. I am now comfortable putting myself out there and making valuable connections. I have identified my niche and my ideal clients, and I am attracting them to me.
I am designing my business to fit the life I desire, not letting my business run my life. I learned how to start thinking like the CEO of my business and make wise decisions that involve money so I can invest in developing my business to accomplish what I want it to.
I fought past the fear of putting myself out there, and taking ownership of the expertise I bring to my clients.
The inner work was crucial. That’s where we worked on my beliefs about myself and what I could accomplish. It’s where we explored the fears that were holding me back and helped me to find those qualities that make me unique. It helped me to embrace qualities about myself, in my business and my personal life, that had been somewhat stifled through years of working for others.
Nafissa helped me to shine my own light and find my own style.
I am now at a point where all that work in the background, laying the foundation without much income at the time is starting to pay off. I am being recognized as an expert in my field. My marketing and outreach is high quality and professional. My work speaks for itself.
The requests are beginning to roll in for paid work – at the fees I set. I expect 2018 to be stellar.
It would have taken years of my own searching to learn what Nafissa showed me in a few short months. The quality of her materials is exemplary and I have been finding them useful nearly a year after the program ended as I go back through them. In addition to the one-n-one work, which is just invaluable, Nafissa includes a lot of bonuses as well, like free mini-trainings and access to group sessions, the private Facebook group and Living Forward TV.
I feel that I am part of a community of women who all support each other in our success.
I truly enjoy working with Nafissa and I am looking forward to joining another program soon to take me to the next level.

"In less than one year I increased my income by 30% and the next year I doubled it".
Working with Nafissa is all about creating the time and money freedom you want.
Before working with her my income was stuck while I worked around the clock. I just thought if I worked harder, then eventually the money would come. I was wrong.
I had to learn a new way to BE and to think. The very first question she asked me was so powerful, and snapped me out of the pattern that had been holding me back for years. It changed the trajectory of my life.
In our work together, in less than one year I increased my income by 30% and the next year I doubled it, all while taking control of my time, increasing the quality of my life and having time to travel regularly.

“Listen to Every Freakin’ Thing She Tells You”
Nafissa spoke into the nuts and bolts, but more importantly, the head-game of starting my own business.
She talked me through some of my weakest moments, when most mere-mortals would have quit. “Moving forward” was pushing through the fear, frustration and the false narrative in my own mind.
Today, I’m no longer a freelancer, but the principal of my own incorporated company. I have studio space and full-time staff.
I let go of several services that were either unprofitable or miserable to do. Now, I have the luxury of being selective of the kinds of clients and work that I do. Nafissa taught me to be daring, take risks, and live the kind of life I’ve always wanted.
Working with Nafissa has made my business more profitable and more enjoyable. Listen to every freakin’ thing she tells you.

"If you're ready to up-level your business and life because Nafissa can help you get to where you want to be."
Before working with Nafissa I was in a rut. I was working hard but not really getting ahead. While I had achieved a certain level of success I felt like I needed a push to take my business to the next level and I was looking for someone who could provide that push. What I didn’t realize is that I would have to dig deep to get to the root of what was holding me back.
The breakthrough that has had the most significant impact on my self and my business has been learning to “Let Go”….Letting go of perfection and letting go of judgments and criticism – mostly of myself. I have realized that striving for perfection with just wear you out. It’s more important to be the best that you can be, but to forgive yourself if you fall short of your own expectations. Chances are no one else knew what those expectations were.
I have experienced a shift in my thinking that has allowed me to pursue a path that is more true to myself. I am refining my business model and firmly going in the direction that I want, rather than where I think I have to go. I am working toward having more and more personal freedom to pursue interests outside of work, like cooking, exercise and travel.
I would recommend that someone work with Nafissa if they’re ready to up-level their business and their life because she can help you get to where you want to be.

“If you want to create the life you truly want, with your business as the vehicle, then you truly owe it to yourself to work with Nafissa”
“Before I met Nafissa, my head was spinning. I was confused, lost, overwhelmed, and definitely not confident in my business or myself. I am so glad I listened to my gut and decided to work with her.
Nafissa is serious about business, she lives and breathes it. She has a gift for blending the strategic and logical aspects of business with the ‘soul’ of meaningful entrepreneurship. She is very committed to helping entrepreneurs find their unique gifts, connect with the people that need those gifts, and get properly compensated in return.
Nafissa has helped me to gain clarity to understand the flow, layout and details of my business. She has also helped me develop the internal strength to be a successful entrepreneur — confidence, self-worth, productivity and courage. I’ve learned that business is not just about ‘doing’ but that there’s also a necessary state of ‘being’.
If you want to create the life you truly want, with your business as the vehicle, then you truly owe it to yourself to work with this amazing and accomplished woman.”

“It was a soul searching journey that helped me understand who I am as an individual and why I do what I do”
“Before working with Nafissa, I had no idea how to answer the question: ‘What makes you different?’ I didn’t know what made me unique in an over-saturated industry, or how to stand out from the crowd about what I do.
In our work together I was able to gain insight into the core aspects of my personality so that I can create compelling authentic experiences for my clients. She helped me discover the ways I am unique, to truly see it for myself and how to communicate that to my clients.
I now have a clear vision of what I actually do for my clients that is unique. I have the words to use in my marketing materials to clearly differentiate myself from other photographers.
Nafissa truly cares about your success. She patiently helps you dig deep to get clear about who you are and what your message is.
The Branding experience was well worth the time and money. Not only did it help me get clear about my business message and what a Brand really is, it was a soul-searching journey that helped me understand who I am as an individual and why I do what I do.”

“I deserve to be paid well for what I do as I offer huge value to my clients that is unique and brings a new level of understanding to their overall health, which really, is priceless. ”
“My challenge before working with Nafissa was to view money or the accumulation of money as something that was out of reach based on my archetypes. As a healer and intuitive person, I felt that getting paid well for the work that I do was not compatible with the spiritual core of my business.
Thanks to her I learned money has energy like everything else. It put this dichotomy in perspective. How to be in relationship with money in a positive way just like a healthy personal relationship, was the key to letting go of my old way of thinking. I deserve to be paid well for what I do as I offer huge value to my clients that is unique and brings a new level of understanding to their overall health, which really, is priceless. If I value my services, so will my clients.
I would recommend you work with Nafissa for so many reasons. She is smart, funny, very personable, a hard worker and has a truly genuine interest in seeing her clients blossom, succeed beyond their wildest expectations, and offers timely, well researched, and applicable advice to the task at hand. She takes you through the process with ease, a workable timeframe, and is there to coach and have your back should you need it. She creates a success foundation for the individual to take that knowledge and put it into action to create a business success.
You will not be disappointed when working with Nafissa. She knows exactly what she is doing and so freely shares all of her success tips (what worked and what didn’t), and shows you how to maximize characteristics of your personality to get the business success results you are looking for. She’s just amazing! Seriously.”

“She helped me to walk through the process creating and pricing programs in such a way that honors the value I bring"
Nafissa has a true gift of discernment. She can take what feels very complex and make it simple. She will not buy into victim narratives. She very effectively and intuitively calls you forth and gives you the practical application to take the steps needed.
She walks her walk and you can tell she is holding space for you as you step into your greatness.
Nafissa has challenged and inspired me to really step into my true worth and value as an Eating Psychology Coach, Spiritual Mentor and Speaker. She has been a perfect mirror for me, inviting me to step into bigger shoes as a business woman. Working with people feels very natural to me, but some aspects of creating a sustainable business could feel overwhelming at times. She breaks things down into workable steps and that inspires me to go the distance. She helped me to walk through the process of learning how to create programs and price them in such a way that honors the value of what I bring.”

“I can see how it will be exciting to plan and watch my income and client base grow”
“I had an awesome Luxury VIP Day Intensive with Nafissa at a beautiful location, and was amazed at how much we accomplished and learned in one day, that in most coaching situations takes months to get through.
I gained invaluable insight into my brand personality and how to attract my ideal high paying clients. I had many A-Ha moments which I know will create huge changes for me for the better.
She also introduced me to an incredibly simple and fun to use income model. This simple system is easy and fun as I can see how it will be exciting to plan and watch my income and client base grow. Her invaluable insight and expert advice specific to my business down to the finest details including how to price my services or deal with a particular situation is crucial to me and what makes working with Nafissa so important.
On top of everything, you can’t help but love her — she is incredibly sweet, kind, funny and fun to be with — Thank you Nafissa for your incredible support, insight, knowledge and friendship and I look forward to continuing our wonderful working partnership!”

“Nafissa really helped me to think strategically when designing a package that serves my client and I make a substantial profit”
“I recently was asked to prepare a proposal to a healthcare corporation for 100 healthcare leaders to take my leadership and communications skills assessment. I found myself overwhelmed with the sheer volume of assessments, and was not sure how to position, package and price my offering. I was concerned about the amount of time it would take to complete all these reports and at a price point that would make sense for both myself and the client.
Nafissa carefully listened to what I had to say. With her knowledge of what corporations are looking for when they make buying decisions, combined with her expertise in creating packages, she astutely pointed out that what would be of great value to this organization, in a way that I could deliver it easily, accurately and gracefully. By keeping the focus on the deliverables to the client, I was able to easily position and price this contract.
Nafissa, I felt so much relief when you helped me see this. Like YES! This is so doable for me. The bonus: You’ve provided me with another package option that I can use with other clients. You really showed me how to think strategically in designing a package that will better serve my healthcare client and at an irresistible investment to them, where I make a substantial profit and don’t kill myself in the process.
You are brilliant! I’m so grateful! I’m doing my happy dance!”

"Nafissa taught me so many things about myself, who I am, what I am doing for clients that is too little or too much and how I can change a few things to maximize my energy to minimize my time within my business."
“I started my business in 1997 to branch out on my own and work from home. I worked “eight days a week” to find enough clients to sustain me and continued to plug along satisfied – or so I thought. Then I met Nafissa at the gym and we got to talking about what we do. She invited me to her live event in February 2015.
From that day, she gave me insight into so many things that I was missing out on in my work, family and lifestyle because I thought what I was doing for so many years was all that I could do. I then signed up for her Branding webinar program. What an eye opener!!! Nafissa taught me so many things about myself, who I am, what I am doing for clients that is too little or too much and how I can change a few things to maximize my energy to minimize my time within my business. I realized that I am worth more than I had been charging and how to make changes to that immediately. I learned how to adjust from the hourly rate to packaging programs which then maximized my time for the client and allowed me to give more of my talent in less time. And make more money doing it with honesty and integrity.
Nafissa has an amazing talent and personality that gave me comfort from day one that I was in great hands and that what time energy and money I was putting into learning from her I was getting back in spades!!! Thank you Nafissa for that first personal invitation to join you on a new journey.“

“Working with Nafissa is wonderful”
“Before working with Nafissa, I discounted more often than I liked and wished I could hold my ground in that area, but didn’t truly believe that my fees accurately reflected the value of my services. Plus I couldn’t describe my business in an interesting way and needed help with that.
Nafissa helped remind me that my services are valuable and that what I offer holds more value than what the majority of other financial advisors offer. She also helped me develop a business description centered on my own personal values and objectives. (my authentic voice).
My networking introduction is now much more interesting, flows better and feels right to me. Now when I introduce myself with my unique branding message, I have individuals nodding their heads instead of their eyes glazing over! I have more confidence in myself and my great service. I believe that my fees accurately reflect the value of these services.
Working with Nafissa in person is wonderful. She has an easy-going and engaging personality. She asks probing and thoughtful questions to help uncover an individual’s unique brilliance. She has an amazing ability to pull all the information together into a brief, interesting and descriptive message. She’s very easy to work with.”
