Amber is an outstanding business coach, especially for clients looking to build/grow their on-line presence. She’s one of very few trainers I know who can take complex topics, break them down into manageable bites, and present them in an easily digestible manner. If you’re looking for a dynamic team-player who delivers superior results and an exceptional customer experience, Amber is the woman to hire. I highly recommend her and will personally be using her services again and again for my future projects!”

People Are Talking

Pamela ZimmerAmber is a true professional expert. She is authentic, knowledgeable, and extremely supportive and inspiring. In every area of my business that she has helped me, I have seen success. I highly recommend Amber for any of your online business needs! Amber… you are authentic, you are honest, you are real and you care. Plus, you are actually DOING what you teach the rest of us how to do, and you show us that, without holding back. You are fun, engaging, exciting, inspiring, encouraging… I could go on and on… I love the way you are not afraid to “go after it” and how easy you make it all look – it comes naturally to you (at least that’s the feeling I get when listening or watching you – I know you work your butt off, but you’re never nervous about what you put out there. you have confidence). Bottom line: authentic and caring.
