Kristin is one of the most gifted life coaches in the business. She’s not blowing smoke telling you how wonderful she is. She proves it time and again with her personal insight and her fantastic programs. If someone asked me who is the most expert life coach working today, I would tell them it is Kristin, without hesitation. Very few bring her level of expertise and integrity to the profession, and I am pleased to have worked with her.
Donna Saul - Business Consultant
I had so many options for my career path that I did not know where to start. Kristin helped me narrow down my focus and really break my procrastination. I loved all the helpful tips she shared and I think about them nearly every day in my work life. Kristin guided me through a job opening I was interested in and a few weeks later, I got the position! Her help was something that I have not been able to find anywhere else.
Thank you SO SO SO MUCH Kristin - I am grateful for you every single day of my life - you taught me so much. It was fantastic how the exercises helped me realize exactly what my priorities are in life and therefore greatly helped me focus and relax allowing me to go through life with more ease no matter how full my plate was!

I can honestly say that the money I’ve paid for this program (Inner Circle) is the best investment I’ve ever made. I’ve tried other means to improve my life (therapy, reading self-help books, making New Year’s resolutions, working on goals with friends, meditating, etc), and none of those ways has been as effective as Kristin’s program. I was able to realize a life-long dream of traveling to India one year and S.E Asia the next! I don’t think I would have achieved these goals had I not been participating in Kristin's program both years. The course helped me to become more proactive, to learn to look for possibilities when facing obstacles, to seek out more fun in my life, and to take action towards achieving my goals.
Your course helped me achieve a really great and needed sense of balance in my life. I work less, yet earn more. I feel like my life is full in all areas: good friends, family and I have started creative projects with work that stimulate and excite me. I also achieved one of my DREAM GOALS and appeared in a several page feature article in Pilates Style magazine!
Kristin's program is one of my secrets to keeping me focused on my most important goals while ever evolving my sense of balance, inner peace and ease in my life. Kristin supported me through a healthy pregnancy with twins while birthing my biggest audio CD program yet! Now I’m enjoying being a new mom while continuing to earn money through my information products. Even though I’m also a coach, I’m super grateful to Kristin for always reminding me I get to design my life the way I want it with ease.
Mary Allen - Inner Peace Coach
Having Kristin as a coach has been like having that friend that no matter how long time has passed, you just pick up where you left off. One of my favorite things of this experience has been all the tools, resources and different ways to approach goal setting to help me be the best version I can be FOR me. Ultimately, it has helped me be a more accountable person, better friend, spouse and a good example for my kids. I was recently going through some big transitional things in my life, shifting careers, moving and for the first time not really sure how to navigate through all the changes and still stay true to myself. It was really helpful to have a program that focused taking micro-steps and celebrating little things to help me achieve those big things I wanted to take on. My theme for the year was to "just go" and Kristin helped me get the wheels moving and bring things into my life I used to only think about. Now so many of those things I get to live each day. The weekly check-in's rocked, even when I didn't feel I had accomplished much, she helped me see the things to celebrate and nudge me when I needed it. I'd recommend Kristin for anyone who needs honest words and is willing to do the work.
"Since working with Kristin in the Inner Circle program, my life has transformed rapidly. I was tolerating situations and behaviors that were holding me back professionally and personally. For example, I went from working a job that didn't allow me to pursue my creative goals to working as a professional actor on stage and network television. Kristin asked that we be specific, focused and passionate when it comes to our goals which was all I needed to make some big changes in my life. The result is that I am constantly reminded to stay aligned with my goals - when that happens, things fall in place."
At the beginning of the year I had come to a cross roads where I could have continued to wallow in a recent failure or I could regroup and push forward. Kristin's online course helped me to reassess my goals and priorities. It forced me to make statements about what I wanted my life to look and feel like and then take weekly steps to accomplish just that. I accomplished things that I know I would not have pursued on my own. This was a tremendous support to me at a time when I needed it most. I have new habits and ways of thinking as a result of participating fully in this process.
I am ever so grateful for you Kristin! I have been involved with self-improvement, motivational programs and other coaching and your online program produced the greatest results. This has been eye opening and I love incorporating the techniques in various aspects of my life. This is also the first time that I haven't felt like procrastination has held me back. I am learning to overcome it and not feel defeated by it. Thank you so, so, so much!!!!
After working with Kristin, my relationships are better, I am healthier and more fit, I’ve put fun back into my life, totally de-cluttered my home and have grown tremendously. I’ve accomplished more than I thought was possible this year - even my big juicy goals. I didn’t know how I would accomplish all that I set at the beginning of the year. I just stuck with the program and did a little bit each week.
Julie Jacky - Jewelry Designer
The way you pushed me out of my comfort zone, held me accountable, and helped me unpack some of the confidence issues have all culminated to where I am now. You did a hell of a job with me in a relatively short amount of time. You're gifted!
Brian Wellman - Triathlon Coach
I hired a coach because I wanted to have balance between my work and personal life. Kristin really opened my eyes so that I can see myself living in the best possible life I can imagine. She is super positive with the perfect mix of fun and high expectations. I'll admit that the money was a little tight in the beginning because my life was such a mess; however, as coaching cleared up problem areas and raised my personal standards, I never gave a thought to the money I spent for coaching.
Leslie Berryman - Marketing & Advertising V.P.
I interviewed several life coaches before choosing Kristin. I chose her because she listened to me and made an effort to really understand my objectives. Kristin doesn't tell you what you want to hear, she draws the truth out from within you. She is easy to talk with, never judgmental or condescending. Through our sessions together, I have gained direction and confidence in my abilities. I highly recommend Kristin to anyone seeking more direction in their life.

In one short month, I began the process of writing my book which has now been published. Now I am working on a series of children's books. Coaching works because it makes you accountable to someone.
Michelle Batz - Author and Teacher
Kristin is socially intelligent and uses her intuition skills to understand how she can help each one of her clients by customizing the right path for him or her. She is very diligent at making sure her clients do their homework and follow through on their goals. She is also really fun and cool to talk to! I wanted to change careers and do something that had a positive and personal impact with clients one on one. I also wanted to be my own boss and take total ownership of my success. Kristin helped me brainstorm to find what path to take to achieve my new goals.
Christian Pitkin - Private Health & Fitness Coach
Kristin coached me to create my dream job, which enabled me to travel the world and earn money to pay off my debt. For 6.5 months I worked for a famous "Motivational Guru" as his travelling assistant. Kristin taught me how to make a dream happen!!! Now, I never take no for an answer. I always find a way. Up, down, over, under, around or through, I never give up. Kristin taught me all of that plus grace, style, and an attitude of gratitude.
Dawne Knudsen, L.M.T
With Kristin's guidance and support, I have been able to organize my goals and make them actionable! As an example, one of my stretch goals was to launch my consulting business full-time, an idea that had been on the back burner for a very long time. Through Kristin's system of regular feedback and encouragement, I was able to finally let go of my fear and jump into the business. My company is booming and the work is very fulfilling. I recommend Kristin's services for anyone who feels stuck and needs a kind voice to push them along!

I was frequently stressed and didn't feel like I was on "my path." I felt like my life was filled with too much stress and I knew there was a healthier way to choose my goals and not be tied in knots. If I had to assign a value to Kristin's coaching, it would be priceless. Yes, she inspired, coached, and guided me with my start-up, but she did something much bigger--she gave me my life back. She helped me create and execute a life strategy that allowed me to focus on my number one goal...my family. I have created a life where I am with my amazing wife and kids everyday, while living my dream. How do I put a value on that?
Corey Clothier - Strategic Business Consultant
I felt stuck in a high-pressure sales job. The money was good but I felt stuck. I was grinding my teeth at night, ulcers, etc. Kristin helped me by getting clear about what I wanted my daily life to look like. She encouraged me to create a new job description and present it to my employer. To my surprise, they accepted the offer I presented (including working from home and more vacation time). Kristin helped me be realistic, yet ask for what I wanted in a professional way. All of this has given me so much freedom. As a bonus, my relationships have improved because I'm not stressed out. Now, I wake up without an alarm clock, have no commute, do yoga daily, make more money, and have more time for my kids and husband. I am very grateful to Kristin for the life makeover that started as a career makeover. My whole life is better now.
October some years ago I found myself disenchanted with how things were going in my life. I was traveling for work and started searching the web and as fate would have it I found Kristin. I signed up for a 30 day program. I was hooked on the guidance Kristin provided so naturally I signed up for yearly programs ever since. She helps me approach problems differently, how to find gratitude, and commit to bigger goals.
One of the most memorable and impactful moments of the coaching was the first question Kristin posed. What do you love to do? After answering that question, she followed with: How much of your time is spent doing these things? Those questions, and my answers, dramatically shifted the direction of my life and career.
Traci Bray - Professional Medium
Kristin has the gift of directness. She has the ability to hone in on exactly the issue to address - even if you're unclear. Every time we finished a call, I felt empowered and thankful - with the tools and skills I needed.
Jen Miller - Social Media Manager for Coca-Cola
I called Kristin because I had become stuck in a daily routine that drained the life out of me. There was nothing to fuel my passion and I had lost sight of my dreams. After working with Kristin, I feel like my life is my own creation...designed around who I am, what I love and how I want to spend my time. It is amazing to see how much can change in such a short time. Kristin is a fantastic coach because she knows exactly the question to ask that will get to the heart of any issue.
Jennifer Hoff Hall - Healthcare Risk Strategist
When I contacted Kristin, I had something specific to work on and a deadline by which to accomplish it. Kristin met me where I was. During our introductory call, before we were even officially working together, she provided valuable advice that set me on the right path. She was able to go deep, right to the root of the matter, and help me make some meaningful tweaks immediately. Since working with Kristin, I have been referring her to other friends. That is the strongest endorsement I can make for Kristin's coaching services.
Sondra Harris - Public Relations Strategist
I learned how to lead a balanced life and with balance comes happiness, money, peace of mind, etc. I am constantly evolving. I no longer chase after anything. Coaching works because you are always held accountable. It grounds me and helps keep me focused. One of the best experiences I had with Kristin was the process of visualizing and creating my new life. I especially remember visualizing the building of a home from the ground up, as a metaphor for creating my ideal life.
Jeniece Miller - Lifestyle Consultant and Motivational Speaker
I came to Kristin as a beginning freelance writer, at a loss for how to structure the business side of my work. Step by step, we worked together through that aspect of my career until I'm now sending out work with more confidence and able to balance several different projects at a time. She's been an invaluable support to me as a writer and I'm always amazed at how much insight and specificity for forward direction she packs into each coaching session.

Before working with Kristin, I felt stuck in a rut for many years. So far, I have changed jobs (my new job salary is almost double what the old job was, with better hours) and I have eliminated my debt. Now I am focusing on building positive relationships and incorporating healthy life choices such as diet and exercise. It isn't always easy but the steady focus does create results. Thanks Kristin, for keeping me inspired and on track with my goals!
Lauren Bralley - Registered Nurse
I hired Kristin for several projects during a four year period. My goals eventually evolved and I was coached to transition my business, find more balance, and practice excellent self care during the planning of my wedding and later during my pregnancy. Having someone stand in my corner for important life events was very valuable. For example, Kristin was persistent with me as I worked on putting more self care into my life, even when it was challenging for me with a busy schedule.
Kristin has been my champion the last year and I'm grateful to be working with her. Since we started working together, I've gotten to a place where (in hindsight and after a lot of work), I've improved myself by leaps and bounds. Starting from creating goals through techniques that made me feel both safe and challenged, she helped me cut through the clutter. I've always struggled with creating and reaching certain personal goals and Kristin helped me through constructive planning and supportive coaching to get me to a place where I know I wouldn't have been able to get to without her coaching.
The one word that most stands out, to describe my time with Kristin, is "clarity". After leaving a job I had for many years I was a bit lost. I didn't know where to go or what to do. My confidence had been shattered. I had little faith in myself and my abilities. Honestly, I was afraid and was drowning. So, I wanted to figure out how to make a living at something I enjoyed and I wanted to quit listening to the voice that said, "You can't." Kristin helped me calm my thoughts and push through the blocks that kept me from succeeding. Now, life is fulfilling and I have a full time job plus a part-time business that I started! We give walking tours in Kansas and highlight various landmarks and restaurants. I'm not that frightened woman who left her job anymore. Kristen helped me through that milestone. I found her to be very present on the calls and able to spur me into action.
