"Before working with our MCBL counselor, we were unable to answer basic questions about aspects of our work because we were so busy. Some days we didn't have time for a cup of coffee. She caused us to step back from our daily tasks and re-evaluate our goals.

Our MCBL counselor opened my eyes as a business owner to new ways of looking at the same old problems. She sparked a new enthusiasm in me and by extension others in our firm. We were finally talking to each other and suddenly started solving our own problems. She wasn't a cheerleader. Sometimes she gave us ideas that I didn't want to hear. She asked great questions. She got us asking questions of ourselves. Our company now has written client profiles and a business development strategy. We feel more organized, more grounded and more strategic. We're talking to our clients and each other more, even when Tanya's not there. And we always have time for coffee."
