Member Testimonials

Clarissa Conn, Angels Mirror Us recommends Julie Ahearn, True Idea Productions & Ginger Kent, Mary Kay
Recently I had my professional photo done. First Ginger uses her magic wand. She highlights my features with perfect colors. Voila! Presto! Clarissa steps under the lights radiating her natural self. Julie takes several pictures. Different poses. Different facial expressions. Different clothes, if you want. The whole while, I feel completely relaxed. She removes my hesitancy to step in front of the camera. As you can see, I feel I am looking directly into the Light that I feel inspires my Life. I am stunned. And happy. I recommend Julie highly. And Ginger, as high.
Beth Tarallo, Skincare by the Sea recommends Laurie Bend, pageonedesign
I recently met with Laurie Bend with Page One Design for a complimentary consultation. She was extremely helpful, especially since I am so "technically challenged!" Laurie gave me design ideas for my website, as well as other social media sites. She was very kind and even stayed with me an extra half hour to make sure all of my questions were answered. Laurie went above and beyond to listen to my concerns and help me with my business in any way possible. She is not only great at what she does, but she is a wonderful person in general which just makes working with her even more enjoyable. I will definitely be contacting Laurie for her services very soon. I highly recommend Laurie and Page One Design for all of your graphic design needs!
JoAnn Reiter, Inside Shading recommends Diane Glim, Monterey County Weekly
I recently decided to advertise in the Monterey County Weekly Women in Business section. Diane Glim at the Monterey County Weekly helped put my ad together. She did a great job with the ad in a very short amount of time. She is a pleasure to work with. “Thank you” Diane for all that you do for PWN and your community.
JoAnn Reiter, Inside Shading recommends Heather Ream, Cypress Cabinets
I decided to create a new look in my kitchen so I went to Cypress Cabinets and found the perfect pulls for a new look. I was helped in a friendly and professional manner and would recommend to everyone to go and see the beautiful showroom and friendly staff.
Tina Zmak, Zmak Creative recommends Marion Gellatly, Powerful Presence
I visited Marion for a private Colorful Analysis session. I cannot recommend this session highly enough! Marion is extremely knowledgeable and a delight to work with. She worked with me to design my own unique palette of colors based on my coloring. I now have a "shopping fan" I can use to buy clothing in colors that work for me, as well as handbags, shoes, accessories and makeup. What a great tool to save time and money!
Lori Silver recommends Jo Ann Gesner, Transcendental Meditation
When I was 18 years old, I learned Transcendental Meditation. After not meditating for over 40 years, I recently updated my TM with Jo Ann Gesner. I’ve been thrilled with my results. I have less stress, am more intuitive, have improved my memory, and it helps so much in work, my hobbies, and at home. My son saw improvements in me, so he took up TM which helped with his focus, memory, and his attention span. Then, my husband took it up! I understand why Oprah trained her entire staff to do TM, and why they experience fewer health problems, have more work days, and many other benefits!
Julie Foucht, Life Tools Training recommends Will Elkadi, eLab Communications
I cannot recommend Will Elkadi of eLab Communications enough. It has been an absolute joy working with him on PWN's beautiful and highly-functional new website.
Julie Foucht, Life Tools Training recommends Marion Gellatly, Powerful Presence
I'm in the middle of Marion's Style School. Such fun! I'm learning so much including why I sometimes purchase lovely things that I hate wearing and which styles and colors always work for me.
Ileen Groves, Bookkeeping Express recommends Will Elkadi, eLab Communications
I was lucky enough to win Will Elkadi's raffle prize at the June PWN meeting. My husband, Barry, takes care of the "back office" for our BookKeeping Express business so I turned the certificate over to him. Here is what Barry had to say about his experience working with Will: "I recently spent some time in training with Will Elkadi of eLab Communications. I thought I knew quite a bit, but he taught me that I didn't know how much I didn't know. Will's expertise in Search Engine Optimization and web design, as well as specific software applications such as WordPress, provided me with at least ten specific tips on how to improve our own web site. This, in just an hour-and-a-half session. In summary - this guy knows his stuff, and I highly recommend him."
Julie Foucht, Kickass Biz Coaching recommends Julie Ahearn, True Idea Productions

I can not recommend Leslie Bruhn’s Women’s Wealth Group enough. Leslie has completely changed my thinking about money, the power of budgeting, creating from intention and happiness. I am reaching for higher goals and making more money in my business thanks to Leslie.
