Reiki Master and Spiritual Alchemist, Dreamtime Healings

“Cheri came highly recommended from a friend who’d been working with her for a year, having made great progress with her own company. I decided I wanted some of that and joined the Victory Circles. I’ve worked with 2 other businesses coaches, but Cheri takes the cake! I’m learning so much about marketing and how to apply it to my daily work practice with much success. She provides so much good information through the modules on-line, stuff that as a healer, I have never heard of. She presents the info. in such a way that one isn’t overwhelmed by it and she gives good ways to implement each module. I love working with Cheri!”

“Being a part of the Victory Circles has been like having my own board of advisors and support team who not only give me guidance and structure for my business, but help me to feel like I am not alone too. I cherish this team of women to hold my feet to the fire and reflect back to me my highest goals when I start to get off track. Cheri is a wonderful coach and really helps business owners stick to the foundational principles that work time and time again.”
