Wealth Leadership Expert, CEO of

"You know how to make me sound as powerful and influential as I feel. I feel so confident about my point of view – even the controversial parts – that I delivered my message and story during a panel session in front of 900 conference attendees. I was calm, compelling and lined up follow up conversations with with people I may not have been able to access otherwise (including a high-level executive of a big corporation). I could never have done this without you."

She’s been my navigational beacon, keeping me clearly, but gently, focused and on-track.  Her ability to see through distractions and get to the heart of matters with laser-like focus is uncanny. She has a true gift for systems, working with me to create a step-by-step business & marketing plan to reach my goals. Thanks to Gayle, I’m confidently on track to growing the business of my dreams!"


Dr. Tom Harvey

President, Leader Vitality, LLC

"Before working with Gayle, I was overwhelmed with a key market research project and I felt unsure about where I wanted to take my business. Thanks to the advice, accountability, messaging expertise and strategic counsel Gayle provided, I was able to finalize and launch my new Leader Vitality survey report. She has helped me refine and simplify my my business model and marketing strategy, as well as assist in the development of a laser-focused marketing plan and first-rate marketing assets. I'm excited and energized about my business as a result of this clarity and focus. Gayle's collaboration with me and my team on this business and marketing foundation has given me the motivation, clarity and tools to sign on two new high-end clients in a matter of months and double my income compared to the previous year."
