“Jan and Riley got me excited about my work again. They very quickly got to the core of what I love to do, and immediately showed me how to make it my work in the world—effectively and expansively serving other people, while also becoming a viable source of income for me. I couldn't wait to start implementing the ahas they shared with me when we got off the phone! These two are individually gifted and collectively brilliant. I can say, without hyperbole, that just 30 minutes with them will change your life!”
