Working with Stephanie is really great because she helps you to give that extra piece of effort. I am a person that always has many plans and ideas, but to actually put them into practice is a greater challenge for me. The beautiful thing with Stephanie is that it gives more motivation to do it and... with her coaching you can do it even a little bit better! With Stephanie it is much easier to take even more steps.... That is why I looooove to work with Stephanie!
Stephanie Ward has been my business and career coach for the past three years. She is my conscience, my voice of reason, and my courage. She constantly inspires me to be the best I can be: she cajoles, she motivates, she cares. Stephanie brings something to the table as a coach that money just can't buy -- understanding. Somehow she is able to strip through all of your carefully-built layers of self-defense and deflection and tell you who you really are -- and what you can really do. Would I have been as good at my work without Stephanie? I certainly wouldn't want to have had to try.
"Your gift is your ability, being the intelligent mirror, to bring me from revelation mode into action mode."
When I first began working with Stephanie I had just set up my own business. I wasnt sure how to approach the dreaded cold calling. Stephanie helped me with setting goals for making new business contacts, without ever making cold calls. I would highly recommend Stephanie to anyone in need of a professional coach.

I am glad to have found Stepahnie - that was one good marketingidea!! She started with asking me some really relevant questions that already got me thinking. Followed up with a conferencecall in which she gave me some really good ideas, points of view and tips. Resulting in a campaign plan. a plan that I can actually see me executing.
I got much more than I expected- including a really useful recap; real value for money! She also managed to touch upon all the subjects I was afraid she was going to mention.....but in such a way that I can see myself acting upon those as well. Marketing is "making friends" and with Stephanie it feels like having a real friend in business on your side, one who is really enthusiastic about your business. I would recommend her to any (small) business owner!
“It is easy to discover that Stephanie is a fantastic marketing coach. You only need 45 minutes on the phone to learn how to communicate your business to future clients, effectively and in an organized way.
This would be enough to hire her without hesitation. But, to be honest, you will adore her for other reasons! You will learn much more if you watch her. She will teach you that details are essential if you want to really take care of your customers. How? Sending you a welcoming, handwritten and personalized postcard. One detail that touched my heart.
She also will teach you to be enthusiastic about your business and believe in you. How? Being herself enthusiastic and positive about your business and believing in you. You will hang up the phone full of positive energy and eager to take on the world! I like people that are wise in their business and in life. There are not many, but Stephanie is one. Thank you so much Stephanie, has been a professional and personal pleasure.”
Stephanie is an insightful, clear thinking coach who instinctively knows how to unravel the knots to create a highly efficient, well oiled machine for her clients. She makes an otherwise unfocused, complicated, stressful small business the smooth running, results driven machine you've always wanted.
For me she streamlined my web pages. This simple change boosted e-zine sign-ups by 525%!
When you work with Stephanie, you will find a professional whose only desire is to streamline your business to boost desired results. Hire her!

I recently had a session with Stephanie to work on my marketing strategy. Stephanie lived up to her promise. She is an extremely talented coach and is definitely the marketing expert for entrepreneurs. Stephanie is also gives an amazing amount of support material to her clients. I highly recommend Stephanie and encourage anyone who is looking for help to give her a call. She is top in her field!
Stephanie Ward was my colleague back in 1999, when she had first moved to the Netherlands. Even before she started her coaching business, she was coaching me and many others. Coaching is not something she does, it is what she is!
Now that I have become a small business owner myself, Stephanie has become even more valuable to me. She has plans, ideas and suggestions for every phase my business is going through. Her wisdom helped me to get the niche-clients I was looking for! And she is so enthusiastic, she loves to share all her knowledge, her network and her resources. Stephanie is like a giant creative barrel full of ideas and solutions for just about every problem or challenge you might face.
And on top of that, she has the ability to always make me feel good about myself and my business, so that whenever I go home after meeting with her I always feel energized and full of inspiration. And with many funky new words in my vocabulary…
Before meeting with Stephanie. I had an action list for my business. However, in the midst of every task I got slowed down by my thoughts of uncertainty. Is this what I should be doing? How should I present myself?
My meeting with Stephanie helped me create new action steps and clarify my marketing sequence. I feel that my business is truly a reflection of what I have to offer and I'm confident in how I present it.
I first hired Stephanie Ward as my professional coach in 2004 while I was going through a career transition. Over the course of working with Stephanie, I made an important career decision and took several steps to move myself closer to my dream career. Fast forward to 2012 and I am now working to set up my own professional coaching business, inspired very much by Stephanie's coaching in 2004. I re-hired Stephanie for two "Spark" sessions to help me decide upon the name of my coaching business and how to brand and market my services. Stephanie's expertise as a marketing coach for entrepreneurs has helped me to quickly make these decisions and take steps towards launching my business. She also gave some great tips and insights on how to connect with my target audience. Stephanie adds tremendous value to her clients by sharing her expertise, coaching them through major decisions and enabling their success with her tips and resources shared in her newsletter, videos and free downloads. I highly recommend hiring Stephanie as a marketing coach- this small investment will reap huge profits for your business!
