 On Coaching…

“People have always called me gutsy, but I was starting to play it safe due to criticism from others when I met Roe at a conference. The worst part was they aren’t even my ideal audience, but still I felt I needed to appease them. The best money I ever spent was hiring Roe. She took me on quite a journey helping me reorganize my business and redefine my goals which is what I hired her for. But I got so much more! I didn’t even know what I needed from Roe that she had to give me. She helped me recognize and embrace the unique parts of my personality and talents including my Maverick. She gave me the courage to be transparent. She gave me back my gutsy, but oh so much better and clearer than ever before. I really like who I’ve become under Roe’s coaching. She has an amazing ability to look within you and pull out your very best that you don’t even know exists. I’m not only a better, more effective entrepreneur from Roe’s coaching, but I’m also a much better person. Thank you, Roe, for a wonderful experience that changed my business and my life from the inside out!”

On Training…

Roe recently conducted a training for a group I belong to; she spoke about how to develop VIP Days for my clients. Although I had heard of the concept before, Roe completely opened my eyes to the possibilities and I’ve already begun formulating a plan to incorporate VIP Days into my product offerings.

I was particularly impressed with how much value Roe brought to my group in a relatively short period of time. She was able to distill the most important points in a very succinct, straightforward manner. She was also masterful during the Q&A session – she clearly knew her stuff and wanted to give the audience as much value as possible.

On Workshops/Seminars…

I can’t say enough accolades for Roe’s “Gutsy Gals Guide Series Presentations”.   I just attended her “Fall in Love with You” event & am still basking in the glow!  Roe hit it out of the park on all levels, from the beautiful venue (Renaissance Pilates) that de stressed & soothed me the minute I walked into the door, the delicious treats, awesome sister attendees & the fabulous presentation.  Not only did I learn immediately usable info to help my professional/personal growth, but I was able to make several business connections for both my Peach Bra & Basic Wear social commerce business, as well as my nonprofit Two Rivers Women in Business Consortium professional networking group!   Thank you, Roe, for this wonderful program!

On VIP Days…

Before working with Roe, I was overwhelmed and stuck. I lacked clarity, had a lot of ideas, but just couldn’t seem to pull things together enough to get started with my new coaching business and speaking. I was on information overload, like many, I was following too many coaches and listening to too many opinions that I ended up with “research-itis”, as one person had told me.  Having so many talents and skills made it extremely difficult for me to make a decision. So, I reached out to Roe, it was the best decision I could have made. Amazingly, within one VIP coaching day, I was finally able to see clearer. I finally felt free and unburdened by all of the stuff running around in my head, which can easily cause one to depress everything or avoid moving forward.  Hallelujah, within a weeks’ time, I had attracted offers I never thought I would see. I’m networking with laser-focused intention and have made some excellent connections to further my success. I highly recommend working with Roe, and trust me, I’m not easily impressed, but she continues to impress me with her coaching style and support. She’s attentive, patient and cares. Plus, she didn’t buy into my BS, she called me out on it when I tried to give excuses.  I love working with her and am so glad we crossed each others’ paths.

On Coaching…

When you crushed several high level “glass ceilings” on Wall Street, heads turned at your gutsy ability to outshine your colleagues. When you spoke on stage at a national event in front of thousands, the standing ovation reverberated throughout the convention center for over five minutes. When you coached me through a reassessment of my life purpose following a serious illness, I felt heard, found my focus and moved forward with renewed gratitude, love and faith. You’re intuitive, compassionate, dedicated and a great problem-solver. You connect to a range of ages, personalities and cultures by relating from your core and knowing your truth! People who know you, trust you—when they just meet you, they gravitate toward your powerful and passionate spirit. You’re a fun friend and inspiring mentor.

On Being Me…

Events happen in your life when you find yourself on a new path heading in a new direction. Often this leads to new relationships and new friendships. This is when I had the good fortune to meet Roe Couture DeSaro. Five years ago I became a volunteer for the American Red Cross Gala Committee. Roe was a Chairperson for the committee and I was instantly taken with her warmth and enthusiasm. As a new member of the committee Roe made me feel welcome and at ease.

It wasn’t long before I became totally committed to the Red Cross mission and the members of the committee. Roe played a very big part in that commitment. As I got to know Roe I began to not only appreciate how bright she was, but also how brave she was. I knew she had left a high level position in New York City to start her own business. I got to know this woman as a professional, a philanthropist and a great friend. It never ceases to amaze me how Roe constantly continues to learn, grow, and get excited about something new every day. Her energy is endless. It’s infectious!

Roe’s example has impacted my life considerably. At 54 years old I was looking to take on a new career path. Roe gave me the support and confidence that lead me into the career I have today. I am now an employee of the American Red Cross. My first position was the head of the Gala Committee where we met. Now I hold the position as the Major Gift Officer for the Jersey Coast Chapter. Roe had no idea that she was my coach these past five years. She made me believe in myself, be brave enough to take on new challenges and confident enough to know I would succeed. Thanks Roe!

On Inspiration…

Roe Couture DeSaro is one of the most inspiring and insightful ladies on this planet; her leadership skills are the brightest and most elegant I have ever experienced in my 40+ years in the leadership business. Her guts to reach out to total strangers like myself with warmth and enthusiasm totally changed the direction of my life, and endeared me to her forever. Her crystal clear vision of how to help people get beyond their limitations is only eclipsed by her deep desire to help us all reach into our depths and graduate us into being what God intended us to be: Champions. When she speaks, I not only listen, I record and take notes!
