I had the pleasure of meeting Cynthia through my husband and one of the companies we own; he had known Cynthia for a little over two decades and thought there might be some value in connecting us for another company I own. Boy was he right! We had been facing a recurring issue around advertising sales representative retention. Cynthia came in and showed us how we could improve our interview process to look beyond the candidate's past and more toward their future with our organization. How could we tell if they were a good fit for our sales model, for our product, and more importantly, our corporate culture. The process hasn't been without its bumps, but that one of the great things about Cynthia...she's dedicated to working with you and your organization to achieve the best possible results as YOU define them, not her. I've worked with a lot of consultants in the past and this is definitely a rare attribute; one that is appreciated more than we've shared with her in the past. We've enjoyed our relationship so much with Cynthia that we've begun to expand our engagement into other areas of the organization as well as refer her to some of our clients. I highly recommend Cynthia and her team to help your organization soar!

I have used multiple business coaches in my years, and by far Cynthia and her team are the best I have ever used. Unlike most business coaches, Cynthia has the real world working experience, which makes her extremely qualified to help you grow your business. No matter how good you think you are, Cynthia can make you a better person and help you run a better business. She is focused, extremely intelligent, and best of all, down to earth. I am very fortunate to have her in my life, and I highly recomend her services!

"Inspired Business Services recently completed a consulting job for our Atlanta, GA security services company. With their knowledge and expertise gained from years of analyzing our target customer Inspired Business Services educated my staff and I on several best practices within the multi-family industry. Cynthia and Natalie were instrumental in developing our local go-to-market strategy. In addition, they are also experts on execution and follow through to ensure long -term successful results. I would recommend Inspired Business Services for organizations seeking an innovative approach to reach your prospects while building a successful brand.
S.Muntean, CEO S3 Security
I have had the pleasure of working with Cynthia in a variety of capacities and projects over the last 20 years. Cynthia's business talents are only reviled by her incredibly positive attitude and unending work ethic. It was truly an honor to have her counsel and entrepreneurial spirit as ARK was launched. Our relationship has only strengthened as each year has passed and she remains a powerhouse partner to the ARK team as well as so many leaders in the business world. There are only a few people in business I would describe as visionary, but Cynthia is in that elite category! I recently saw her work closely improving the hiring process for an ARK client, and personally watched the talent levels and sales rise!

Cynthia is an extremely successful business women in her own right which I personally find very important in a business counselor. Why? Because I believe its those that DO should be the only ones to TEACH. I had the privilege of sitting down for a private one to one and came away with more solid advise then I've ever received in past presentations. Cynthia not only shares with you "what to do" but "how to do it". As Silver Line Specialties grows I know I'll be going to Inspired Business Services to ensure that there are no missteps along the way.

Cynthia, and Inspired Business Coaching has trained me to become a model...a business model...actually, a model business woman.

Working with Cynthia and Natalie was such a positive experience. They helped me to recognize talents that I did not know that I had.

Natalie is extremely efficient and knowledgable in all management skills. Her guidence has been very helpful for our company in determining everything from contacts to inventory flow. Managing the details and thinking through the possibilites is a task that as a small business we do not always have time for. Natalie sees our future so to speak and continues to help us achieve our goals! She is a pleasure to work with.

D. Honkomp, Sr. Dev Chemist at Dow Chamical
Natalie's responsibility as a commercialization specialist demanded attention to quality, safety, product performance and resourcing. She managed these multiple demands well in order to meet customer requirements for timely solutions and increased market effectiveness. A strong work ethic and ability to interface with various work groups were hallmarks of Natalie's job performance.
S. Blake, Sr. Reseach Technologist at Dow Chemical
Natalie is absolutely the best person I have ever worked with in regards to understanding the complicated inner workings of business systems.
Dow Chemical has quite a few overly complex and interwoven systems - Natalie is our go-to person when we needed to understand how the systems worked together, and what the ramifications of some contemplated action would be on the business.
She also has a very high degree of personal integrity. What she says, she will always do. Everyone has a high degree of trust in her for this reason, and because of her in-depth business knowledge.
