“When I started my International Association of Professional Life Coaches™, Sheri’s book on associations really gave me a good head start. Taking her “Create Your Network Fast Track” program gave me more of the nuts and bolts I needed to get my association into a higher gear. She explained her systems clearly and showed how we could use them effectively in our business. She also helped me push through roadblocks in several areas, including building a list and finding joint venture partners. Having access to Sheri’s expertise has been invaluable in sustaining as well as moving forward with my association. From her program I have started building a list, have more valuable offers in place for visitors and members, and have a much more comprehensive plan of action for marketing my association. Thank-you, Sheri!” ~ Jeannette Koczela

“I LOVE The Smart Woman’s Institute Programs” The information is so rich and full of instruction in additional to the numerous tools she includes in every program! Incredible programs on membership-based companies, infoproduct creation, writing books, tele-summits, participating in events and more… I highly recommend these programs and products if you are wanting to move forward in your life or business.” ~ Robin Hart, National Women’s Holistic Lifestyle Institute

“The Smart Women’s guide to Publishing a Book that Builds Your Business” takes what seems impossible and brings it into the realm of possibility. Not only that, Sheri provides simple, clear and practical guidelines to using a book to grow your business. Taking Sheri’s programs has equipped me with the tools and confidence I needed to write and publish my first book. Becoming an author has further increased my credibility, expanded my circle of influence and given my business the wings it needed to take off.” ~ Lisa Dewar
