Benjamin Franklin has been quoted as saying, “Failing to plan is planning to fail.”

As we drop into the last quarter of the year, we start to turn our attention to all of our hopes and dreams for the upcoming year. 

But it’s not enough to dream and hope. You need a plan of action to achieve your goals for 2017.

A PLAN sets you up for success. Rather than “shooting from the hip” or “winging it,” a plan guides you to get the results you want.

You wouldn’t go on a long road trip without a GPS or a map, right? Or, you wouldn’t build a house without a blueprint, right?

Yet, so many people start the new year without a plan to accomplish their deepest desires. 

It’s time to stop “seeing how it goes” and get a clear vision for what you want in your business in 2017.

It’s time to build a plan. I’m going to show you how. 

In this Workshop you will learn…

Client Reviews

Joyful Women

Before I started working with Brenda as my business coach, I had an outdated business plan and had stalled in direction and motivation with my business.

I was referred to Brenda by a successful local small business woman who was being coached by her. I needed help getting my message out when I was crowdfunding for The Urban Homesteader. Jeannine Glista

Before meeting Brenda, I was off track and not hitting my target goals. A couple of sessions with Brenda and BAM!

She helped me re-prioritize on the critical path of items that made a huge difference in my campaign. She even introduced me to a PR professional who helped us get national press coverage.

Brenda knows how to look inside your business and focus on the things that matter.

— Jeannine Glista, Executive Producer The Urban Homesteader

The first time I heard Brenda Horton speak, I knew I was in the presence of a very knowledgeable and dynamic leader. She was facilitating a workshop on Internet marketing and she left an indelible impression on me.
Jani Carlson
Fast-forward to today. My vision is clear, my direction is focused and I am enjoying my business like never before. I am on a trajectory for continued growth with full confidence!

I soon took full advantage of the opportunity to hire her as my business coach. Working one-on-one with Brenda has helped me get to the heart of my business matters. She showed me how to narrow down my focus so that I could identify my ideal client, which by the way, she even referred an ideal client to me.

I have been able to implement new programs and systems that have empowered me to be more consistent and efficient. I am no longer all over the map. Thank you Brenda, for helping me “unclog” my path to success!

— Janai Carlson, Peace Of Mind Moving Managers

I’ve been coached by Brenda Horton for the past year and my confidence, inner strength, relationship skills, and business growth has sky rocketed!

Brenda is the kind of coach that inspires you to work and live with authenticity and honesty.
Laura Beavers
She’s not only interested in helping you think and dream big, she actually has a powerful method for helping you achieve your goals and vision. My favorite saying from her is, ‘ask for what you want and go for it.’ She has a deep understanding of how to integrate your work with your life so that it is in alignment with your values. Her business coaching approach is holistic in the sense that shows you how to work and live with modern technologies and avoid burn out. I am the president of a nation wide company and Brenda is the coach I call on when I need to hit the pause button and take a look inside.

— Laura Beavers, President of Water Heaters Only

Brenda helped me flesh out some big decisions I was facing with regards to the direction of my business. I knew I wanted to hire her to help me lay the course of my next step. I know a lot of business coaches, but I knew I only wanted to work with Brenda because she is honest and forthright. Her advice always takes you to a higher ground.

— Suzie Kost, Double Diamond Executive for Rocking Wrap

Brenda is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, insightful business and planning coach. She really understood the issues that I faced – especially that of monetizing a human services business where the main activity was not money-making.

Annie Keeling
My blocks were released through her skillful guidance. Her empathetic ear clearly heard my set of challenges and she helped me turn issues into wins.

She has the knack – and tools! – for prioritizing, time management, big picture scheduling, and organization. I love the experience of working with Brenda and the incredible changes that have taken place in my business.

—Annie Keeling, Parent Educator and Early Childhood Specialist

When I started working with Brenda and Hware, I had been running my own business for over 3 years. I was doing ok, but was stuck in a holding pattern and unable to scale my business. My work with Brenda allowed me to uplevel my business and provided guidance to align my vision with my actions.

Kelly Golden
She worked closely with my team to help us create systems that would support our growth, and she mentored us in taking our marketing from a local to more regional and national level. I continue to work with Brenda and the Hware team to grow my business and reach my goals. It’s been one of the best investments I’ve ever made for my business.

— Kelly Golden, Founder of Vira Bhava Yoga

We hired Brenda during a time where our business skill set had hit the ceiling. Up to this point, we had been able to keep up with our growth and with the demand. Then the scales tipped and we were underwater and unable to feel good about how we were managing our growth, our customers, or our offerings.

Rachel Tuck
Brenda spent 10 hours with us and revolutionized our perspective, taught us the skills needed to build a better infrastructure and manage a higher volume. She helped us understand who to develop relationships with online and how to become visible and reach a broader market.

Within one month of working with her our business site was on Google’s front page, we had more customers, and were able to manage the volume systematically! Hware and Brenda helped us set up systems that allowed us more time to enjoy what we do while continuing to be successful!

—Rachel Tuck, Business Manager at The Golden Mandala

I have used Brenda’s business coaching several times in the last few years to help me save $ in my business and also figure out more revenue streams.
Susan Gouveia
She is inspiring, empowering & has a great sense of humor! Her business savvy & knowledge is vast. She is flexible, fair & super helpful. I highly recommend her for speaking engagements, personal & group business coaching sessions!
