I was feeling stuck and frustrated with my business. After working with Susan, I am now clear on my goals and my action plans, and my daily time management has improved tremendously. She gave me tools and clear and easy steps to move forward consistently. I have added new clients as a result of following her advice!
I felt constantly overwhelmed and had a mindset of scarcity. From the very first day of following Susan's system, that was transformed. I was able to see all that I had to do, to organize it, prioritize it and set a up realistic schedule. This allowed me to double my billable hours. Now I feel that my time is abundant. I always know what my next step is and when I'm going to take it.
Before I started working with Susan I was feeling overwhelmed, managing a lot of projects, and was challenged by my timelines. I was also very tired and on the edge of burnout. Susan helped me set priorities and structure my calendar so I could meet all of my commitments and still have free time. She has supported me to allow time for self-care and rest. Our work together created a paradigm shift that has taken me to the next level in my business. By taking proper care of myself, I have increased my productivity and am attracting more business. I have referred Susan to a few of my clients and have high confidence in her abilities.
I was feeling disorganized and was finally ready to set some goals. After taking Susan's Success through Goal-Setting course, I am more focused and clear about where I want to take my business this year.
I wanted to set goals for my business, but didn't have a good system that worked for me. Susan's Success through Goal-Setting course made the process easy and painless. Now I have a plan for my business this year. So excited!
Susan has helped me save time and become more efficient in running my business. In addition, she set up systems for me to make it easier to focus on my priorities and she helps me stay on track with achieving my goals consistently.
When I hired Susan I was struggling to stay with projects long enough to succeed with them and starting to fear that I might never have the success I was chasing. Through my work with Susan I have been able to stick to one major goal – and this month, I achieved it! Susan kept me on point by asking "how does this relate to your goal?" in response to my new ideas. I also have a much better sense of how I am spending my time, and I'm getting more of the most important things accomplished now. Susan is very consistent, reliable and helpful. I am so grateful for her support and I highly recommend her!

As a new business person my productivity has been dramatically improved by working with Susan on my business systems and time management. What I had not expected is how much difference it has made in all aspects of my life. I accomplish far more at home, even difficult tasks I have often procrastinated about, which in turn has lowered my stress and raised my self esteem. My family has been struck by the difference and has even adopted some of Susan's tools. I highly recommend Susan to anyone who would like to accomplish more in life.
I have followed David Allen's productivity system off and on for years. Consistency eluded me until I started working with Susan. Her program is deceptively simple and flexible. Now, following through in completing tasks is easier than ever.
We are a Landscape Design Build company in Marin County. Over the years in our business, we have run into many challenges, including limitations to growth, project and time management, financial cash flow issues and human resource challenges. Susan has helped us to address many of our by issues by guiding us with ideas and solutions. Most importantly, she has actively helped us to find a great bookkeeper, move into a new office, address time management issues and find solutions to our infrastructure issues. Meeting regularly with Susan helps us to stay focused and accountable to our goals. We really enjoy working with her and look forward to continuing our ongoing growth and success.
Susan helped me get strategic about where I want to go with my small business. She helped me identify and move toward goals, and helped me figure out what I might need to give up or change to make this possible. I am continuing to work with Susan to grow and evolve my business.
I could be a case study for a person who thought that running a business was just about being the best at what they do, honing their skills and delivering great quality. Ha! I jumped into business ownership with great enthusiasm years ago, but with no business management skills or even awareness that I needed such practical props. Running the business, to my dismay, has been like taking on another part time job on top of doing the work and trying to fit in a personal life.
Susan Tollefson has been my business coach for the last few years, and it's been her influence that helped me accomplish my top priorities so I can get the important stuff done without running myself ragged - as she says, to "align what I'm doing with where I'm going." When I've been a reluctant student at some moments, I've later realized that she's been right on point with personalized guidance to help make my business work for me as well as for my clients. She's experienced, inventive, and always a patient supporter -- I recommend her highly!
Susan's time management program is life-changing! I learned that I was not using my time as effectively as I thought I was. Holding myself accountable allowed me to take a closer look at how I was allocating my time, our MOST valuable commodity. I also learned how to avoid becoming overwhelmed with the tasks that seemed insurmountable and how to allocate bits of time to complete them made them so much easier! Susan is brilliant and her program WORKS! I have recommended her program to several of my colleagues and they rave about her!!
Susan's goal setting program really helped me get focused! Now I have a plan and a clear course of action for my business.
I learned some good, new, approaches from Susan that have helped me, even though I was already pretty good at time and project management. Susan helped me focus, develop clear action plans and good habits.
