"I developed a different leadership style. I understand that coaching means I am the one doing the work. Ann, as my coach, keeps me on the road. I found the learning and growth happen and things click between our coaching sessions when I have time to reflect. The way you [Ann] did this was very comfortable and our relationship has grown during this coaching process.
Even though our work was done remotely, I felt it was very engaging and empowering. I felt real growth. I am enthusiastic particularly with you [Ann]. The coaching process added real value because the learning is here to stay. While we worked on goals, the process was most important. Now that I have this methodology in place, through understanding my behaviors, being able to self assess and look at myself...(I have leadership tools I carry with me into the future)."

"I had abandoned my passion for photography several years ago. It was so expensive and so technical. I also was afraid to challenge myself because I didn't see how I could make any money in art photography. Through coaching with Ann Houser, I reinvigorated my interest and more importantly pushed myself to be more professional in the field. I'm pleased to say that I have a series of photographs published in an art magazine this fall."

"Ann Houser is a wonderful presenter, she not only discussed great options to embrace rejection and dealing with disappointment she shared her own stories of rejection and disappointment which really resonated with the audience. Enjoyed the small group discussions and also having an Accountability Partner. Liked the Rejection Strategy & Tips to remind us to refocus. Thank you for having Ann as a Speaker."
