Denise totally gets what I like AND what will work for me. She always shows something I would never have thought of or found. And she always finds more ways to wear what I already have in my closets. Working with a consultant may seem extravagant, but I get more for my wardrobe dollar when Denise is on the case. Did I mention that Denise is a ton of fun?

“I was in a really rocky spot in my life when my wife introduced me to Denise Sims. My doctors were telling me that I was under so much stress that it was causing me medical problems. I knew I needed to do something.
I thought I was mainly going for business but it turned out that it was very helpful personally. Denise is an awesome person who listens and understands. She helped me see a different way of looking at things.
She helped me see how my family and my upbringing were affecting me in my adult life.
I am not the sort of person who finds it easy to share complaints with others, but Denise is so easy to talk to. It’s not therapy or counseling its more about how you think. Denise has helped me “fill up the holes in my boat”
I recommend Denise to others all of the time. My life is so much better now. My family is happier and I don’t feel so much stress with my business. It has been a great experience working with Denise. She will always be a part of our lives.”
Before working with Denise Sims, our business was drowning and we had no idea what to do. My husband does exquisite artisan construction work and our clients loved us but it felt like our whole lives were chaos and mayhem dealing with one scheduling or invoicing issue after another. I had also just started a new career in real estate and needed some direction as to how to build that business as well.
We never had any time for ourselves. Our 3 year old daughter was frequently with us on jobs and our office was the kitchen table. Despite all of our hard work, we weren’t making enough money to pay the bills and it seemed like our bills were getting larger and larger. Finally my husband ended up in the hospital because the stress was too much. That’s when we hired Denise Sims.
What Denise taught us was transformational. She took a very holistic approach to helping us in both our businesses as well as our personal life. She helped us to clearly identify and better understand the things we were doing that were sabotaging our success and what to do about it.
Now, we have systems in place as well as a full time Office Manager. Denise identified one area that was costing us thousands of dollars every month and showed us how to fix it immediately. By empowering us to realize that it’s OK to ask for money we developed “business self esteem.” As a result, our construction profits have increased by 30% and a side benefit (if you want to call it that) is that my real estate business has also taken off, generating $40,000 in the month of December alone.
But that’s only the financial piece of it. I am so grateful that my husband is experiencing less stress and can enjoy his work again. He even pays attention to his own wellbeing! Now we actually have family time, WEEKENDS and enough money to enjoy them. Our family has a routine, and we have our lives back. And our kitchen table? That’s where we eat dinner now!
Coaching with Denise Sims has literally changed our lives. We are so excited about our future, thanks to the quantum leaps that Denise helped us to make. Thank you Denise!

“When I first started working with Denise my life was like a badly wrinkled shirt. Slowly through my weekly sessions with Denise these wrinkles have been smoothed out.
I always thought of myself as a very organized, well thought out, and in control person. Starting my own business really put me to the test. The feeling of being overwhelmed was constant! At times I just shut down from being in over my head. It was hard to motivate to even do basic things. A desk full of paperwork, a list three pages long of to do’s, never mind all of the other ideas I had swimming (or should I say drowning) in my head. Can you say “maxed out”.
I met with a coach earlier in the year and it wasn’t a match. Then I met Denise and there was an automatic connection, so our weekly sessions began. The impact was immediate. I felt happier, more energetic, better organized, my communication with my clients improved, my sales increased, and I experienced an overall increase in my self esteem. This all happened to someone who already knew everything on her own. Ha ha
I began ‘coaching’ purely for the business. What I didn’t realize was that it would permeate all areas of my life. I had been feeling very anxious and all clogged up creatively. Working on my house was one of the things on my back burner. Suddenly it was right before my eyes. Once I accomplished one goal something totally new would pop into my head. All the things swimming up there just began flowing out. Today, my anxiousness has dissipated and I look forward to accomplishing my goals.
From my coaching experience comes a realization that we all need help at some point in our lives and the biggest step is asking for it. Take the leap!
