“Taru has helped me the most with the issue of taking care of myself – the whole work/home life balance issue (way too much work even though I REALLY enjoy what I do – part of the problem, eh?). She can tell when I’m trying to avoid the subject and she will keep bringing me back around until I actually do something about it. And not only is Taru skillful herself, she is full of resources for her clients and easily shares them. Thank you, Taru for all of your wisdom, guidance and support.”
“Taru helped me through a daunting personal issue that I had been dealing with on my own for awhile. I was able to overcome the issue and move forward through the help of her coaching. Taru has a kind-heart, and has dedicated her life to helping others. She is trustworthy and respects confidentiality. I recommend her services to anyone who needs a helping hand to get through a transitional state.”

Taru’s coaching helped me achieve clarity. I was feeling muddled and unable to move ahead in my life, and now I have made vast changes.
I’m creating a plan; Taru helps me break it down into doable steps so that I can see what I’m accomplishing which gives me the energy and excitement to keep working.
I developed a new vision; I see myself differently and realized I don’t have to live with the goals I set 20 years ago, I can look at today to see what I want to do now.
I notice I have more energy and am happier so I am more fun to be around, and I’m interested in playing more.
The most significant difference I see in my life as a result of coaching with Taru is I gave myself permission to enjoy who I am now, and appreciate what I do, rather than be unhappy about what I don’t do.
Because I am a work in progress , I plan to continue coaching with Taru; I value her guidance and unique perspective on what I say and feel.
Taru, I am so happy that you are touching my life with your ability to distill my rambling down to the things that really matter to me, and a plan to make them part of my everyday life. XXOX”

“I’ve benefited in many ways during my coaching sessions with Taru. She has an incredible ability to understand small business and has a large variety of resources to draw from when I need direction. My business has grown in the double digit range over the last two years, and my ability to keep up is due in large part to her. She keeps me accountable to my goals.
You ROCK, Taru! Thank you!”
- Chris Baker
“Working with Taru has been a blessing which has allowed me to grow over the last three months.
When I first started coaching sessions with Taru I was floundering a new entrepreneur, passionate about my work, but unfocused and frozen in space. My business lacked structure and I didn’t have a business plan yet, let alone projections of where I wanted my business to be. I knew what I wanted to do on a daily basis which is why I started my business, but didn’t know how to move beyond the joy of that moment and be successful.
Taru’s coaching has changed all that. Through her guidance I now have an actionable business-plan-in-the-making and I’m investing in my future by more confidently stepping outside my comfort zone. I’ve developed a website, gotten a certification relevant to my business, engaged in productive networking and spoken in public before an audience of strangers for the first time in my life. I had asked Taru to help me become more accountable to myself. To me that meant setting objectives, meeting milestones, adhering to schedules and finding the right productivity tools, and more. In several short months I’ve fulfilled that wish.
One of the things that I love the most about working with Taru is that she has the ability to hear what I say, understand it, and communicate with me on the same level with words that resonate with what I’m going through at the time. Taru has become the equivalent of a third leg to provide balance while I’m growing so I’ll be able to stand steadier on my own.
Taru has guided me to programs and people that have helped me professionally.
The best thing that working with Taru as a coach has done for me is that she has helped me strengthen my backbone so I feel like a true professional and now represent myself that way.”

“An engaging process – sometimes insightful, awkward, emotional, inspiring and thoughtful. Taru’s genuine passion and caring for her work and her clients supports great transition, both consciously and otherwise. I don’t understand all that went on but I can attest to the results – I wake up everyday with a giving, competent, entitled attitude and the world greets me with welcome. I’ve made more sales in the last month than I have in the last six. This process changed me for the better. Thanks Taru, you’re very appreciated.”

“Since completing the WealthyMind™ Program, I get down to the bottom of what’s happening and am consistent in recommending to my clients what’s REALLY best for them to do…and share with them how much better their life will be. I don’t worry about it, or lose sleep about it…I just move on to serving the next customer.
In all my relationships, I’m able to stand up for myself better. I have more courage and I can hold my own better. My partner would say “this is the way it’s going to be”…convinced that I don’t know the way…but now I say “I truly know this is the way.” I can’t be talked out of something that’s really true for me. Now I don’t put up with any foolishness.
The most significant effect I got from the WealthyMind™ Program was the feeling more at ease with who I am. My new mantra is I can be myself and still help others. And my self is not such a bad thing.
Taru also has the ability to hold her own and she deserves what she earns from her clients. She has developed an inner value of what she has to offer and she holds to it.”

“I am a client of both James for SafeStrength™ training, and Taru for coaching. The most immediate impact of my SafeStrength™ training was to motivate me to actively pursue my goals with life training with Taru. I found that a strong body leads to a healthy mind.
Coaching sessions with Taru hold so many benefits for me – focus, direction, and expanded possibilities that my life did not hold previously. The most significant difference I’ve seen in my life is the reshaping of my mindset which has allowed me to develop a new and better relationship with my siblings and mother. Her NLP modalities have also allowed me to reframe many other stumbling blocks as I re-image my life.
As I’ll be moving out of state soon, I won’t be able to continue my strength training with James, but I’ll definitely continue my coaching sessions with Taru. I wouldn’t miss them!”

“.. With the encouragement, guidance and accountability of your coaching, I’ve been able to identify and focus on my priorities and relax about the new direction I’ve chosen for my life. Even better, you’ve helped me rediscover a major goal/passion in my life which has me more excited and motivated than I’ve been in a long time. Last but not least, after several years of “trying” to lose some weight, I’m now actually losing it. Thank you so much for your caring, supportive and skillful coaching over the past few months. It has truly made a positive difference in my life.”
