Able to reduce waste and surge forward!
I had the pleasure of working with Amber from the beginning of 2017 to 2018! I had never had a coach before other than my physical trainer so this was an eye opening experience. I found that I was able to throw all "my balls" into the air and, with Amber's talent and assistance, catch them, put them in order, and have them make sense so that I could continue to work at my optimum! So much of the time, there are time wasters and I found by concentrating and discussing my business with her, I was able to reduce the waste and surge forward!
Doubled my business from last year!
I doubled my business from last year and feel so much more grounded! I also finalized a few projects I hadn’t gotten to before.
Business running smoother, with less stress and increased revenue
Amber has become a valuable and trusted member of the team. She has helped us pause and think through our processes and change many aspects of how we run our business and client relationships. In doing so, we have greatly improved our efficiency and productivity. Our business is running smoother and with less stress. Our staff is more focused and organized. Our calendar, reviews, systems, travel, etc. all has been greatly improved and more productive. We have increased our business revenue as well as peace in the office. We will continue to work with Amber as a trusted and valuable resource on an ongoing basis.
How every business coaching session should go!
This is definitely how every business coaching session should go in my book. Thank you, Amber De La Garza, for an incredibly heart felt, eye-opening and empowering day of downloading, learning, and reconstructing my life. The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa was the PERFECT choice. You're a beautiful soul with an extraordinary gift. It is an honor to work with you! I know what the before looks like oh-so-well. I can't wait to see the "after!"
Doubled our production.
Amber exceeded our expectations in helping to create organization and purpose for our business. Without her, we are certain we would not have accomplished our goals in such a short amount of time and with such simplicity and quality use of time. We believe that it is in part a result of her work that enabled us to double our production.
My life has substantially improved in all areas
(Before working with Amber), I was juggling a multitude of people, projects and processes and not necessarily doing ANY of them well. While working 12-14 hours a day often 6 days a week, I spent my days running from one fire to another, missing deadlines and accomplishing very little. I managed my “to do” list by handling the most pressing items in my email box and the hottest fire. Every aspect of my personal and professional life was suffering.
After coaching with Amber, both professional and personally, my life has substantially improved in all areas.
My organization is improved, my business has grown, I have systems and methods that work. I have been able to execute on many aspects of my business plan. The new focus has allowed me to be more successful. I have clear goals and most importantly, I have boundaries. I prioritize my tasks and accomplish more in my days. My friends, co-workers, and family recognize the change in me personally. I am more accomplished, peaceful with a larger degree of life balance.
Amber is a mastermind when it comes to organization and productivity. Amber talks you through what needs to happen, and holds you, the client, accountable. Learning a new skill is not easy. It requires constant re-directing and discipline. Amber did not fix me. I fixed me – with new tools that Amber provided. Changing habits takes so much effort and work; however, the results are fantastic!
Lasting positive changes in the way I do business
Amber is honest, ethical, and gets things done! With her help, I checked numerous items off my To-Do list that had been hanging over my head for months if not years! Her services have made lasting positive changes in the way I do business. I will benefit from my time with Amber for years to come.
Have time now to create new products and services!
I kept getting frustrated with my unpredictable schedule and how to grow my business when I felt like I didn't have time to focus on activities that moved the needle. I'd done nearly everything (Amber) recommended on her show but when I finally sat down with her for a coaching session, she helped me see the time block that I had in my schedule each week that would allow me to focus on growth. Since our session, I was able to do a big product launch that I never would have considered in the past. I'm months ahead in content scheduling and have time now to create new products and services that are going to help me diversify. Thanks Amber!
Offered solutions that fit me and the way I work
I was overwhelmed with how to do my tasks in a simple and efficient way, that didn't take more time than it was worth. Amber lasered in with her insightful, ever so helpful way, got to the root of my specific issues, and offered solutions that fit me and the way I work. Her insights, tips, and recommendations have been invaluable and have prevented much gnashing of teeth and migraines. Not only did she solve a bunch of challenges I was having, she made it totally and completely doable and dare I say fun! Working with Amber is top notch problem solving and pain relief.
Make every day as productive as possible
Amber has helped me put systems and strategies in place in order to make every day as productive as possible. Our sessions have been full of brainstorming ideas to keep me on track with my routines so that I can hit my goals. Amber is down to earth and very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Amber to anyone looking to take their business to the next level.
Exponentially increases the time you have
You won't regret working with Amber but you will regret it later if you don't work with her. Working with Amber exponentially increases the time you have available to invest in other areas of your life and business.
Thorough and practical program that makes a big difference
I’d been experiencing difficulty with managing tasks and projects, creating a model week, energy management, and general overwhelm.
I was familiar with the concepts from Amber’s podcast but this tied everything together and made it applicable to me. I am using all of the thorough and practical information I learned and it is making a big difference. Amber has a gift for figuring out roadblocks to productivity and solutions to those problems.
Now, I am tweaking my model week, using morning, evening, start up and shutdown routines, implementing a task management system, keeping my emails at inbox zero, and focusing on profit producing metrics. Thanks Amber!
Business coaching: the key ingredient to growth and success
I was the classic over-worked business owner. Coming home late, never finishing projects, pulled in a million directions at once. Fast forward to today – I now have a daily schedule; tasks get done and things don’t drop through the cracks. I spend time each week working on business development rather than chasing my tail to just keep the business running. I delegate better, feel calmer and most importantly – spend time with my wife and my son. Amber has been instrumental in developing systems so I can run and grow the business I want and be the husband and father I promised myself to be. Amber has become an integral part of my team. She communicates ideas and concepts extremely well and is an excellent motivator. She now also works with my key management staff, which has helped them professionally and personally. If I could sum up my coaching sessions – I would say coaching is a business asset that is a key ingredient to growth and success.
Invaluable, eye-opening experience
Very quickly Amber was able to point out activities in my day that are monopolizing my time and help me to develop strategies to address those in a more effective way. Amber realized that I had one foot in my new role as an entrepreneur and one foot in my former role as support staff. That realization alone was an "eye opener" for me to lean on the support staff that I have, trust them to do their tasks effectively, and confidently focus my energy on the responsibilities and opportunities within my new role. Thank you Amber, this experience has been invaluable!
Extracted the roots of my issues
Amber demonstrated such a gift of intuition and the ability to quickly get laser-focused on the specific problems that were getting in the way of being productive. During our strategy session, she put me at ease with her warm personality, extracted the roots of my issues, and provided an actionable plan for helping me implement the strategies we discussed (so long, sticky notes and redundant notepads!). She knows her stuff, and the passion she feels for her work shines through when you work with her.
A productivity "Sherpa"
I had considered 1 to 1 business coaching for years, and I did the research, but just couldn't seem to find a coach that resonated with me and what I felt I needed. By chance, I met Amber through a friend and fellow design entrepreneur that was already working with Amber. Amber's professional but friendly personality immediately clicked with me and I quickly realized she was an expert in her field. I also appreciated the fact that her podcasts packed a ton of info into short segments - after all, who has time to waste on weak content?
Through my individual sessions with Amber, I have established methods of best practice that are sustainable. She breaks things down and tailors them to her client, because she really gets to know her clients through thought-provoking questions and exercises. I use her suggestions every day in my work and highly recommend her for any small business owner who needs a productivity 'Sherpa' that can help them navigate the unpredictable waters of day to day business operations.
Determined avenues to be more organized and effective
I have greatly benefited from working with Amber to streamline my business and gain greater productivity levels. Amber has great intuitive ability to determine possible avenues to helping people be more organized and effective. She is a great listener and has always inquired whether an approach she has suggested would be workable for me. I have implemented many strategies and put them into daily action steps that have certainly helped me in my business and in my mindset.
Take the next step and schedule a Discovery Call
Having Amber focus her insights on my business' productivity challenges was unbelievably valuable.
If you think Amber is great on her podcast, take the next step and schedule a Discovery Call to find out how you can work with her!
Provided the motivation and accountability we needed
By hiring Amber, we gave our business a jump start and she provided the motivation and accountability that we needed to change the focus of our company, reorganize, and to move forward.
I highly suggest Amber if you want to take the next step in business!
I'm not sure where to start! Amber is an absolutely incredible coach and person. I started out in group coaching with Keller Williams and she single-handedly changed my career. I'm not sure if I would have been nearly as successful my first year if I didn't have Amber's high level of accountability, mindfulness, and creative support. She understands the ups and downs of owning your own business and helped me through any and all problems, from staying focused during a really tough break-up to branding myself to ensure my business continually grows. I never understood the importance of having a support system because I was always very "independent" but Amber's insights and support have been invaluable. She helped me realize my unique potential, my self-inflicted challenges, the importance of time management and taking action, how to focus and achieve what I truly want, and most of all how to overcome the challenges of running my own business. I HIGHLY suggest Amber to anyone who is looking to take the next step in their business.
Consistently blown away by Amber's coaching!
I hired Amber to help me take back my time & allow me to focus on being creative and focus on the things within my nonprofit that I love most and that bring the most value to my team & my organization! I am consistently blown away by her coaching & strategy sessions and how much it's helping me! I have had breakthroughs in my time management, my abilities to curate the life & business I really want, AND have new creative ideas for goals I've had for years!! These sessions have been even more incredible than I expected and I just want to thank Amber so much for taking time with me <3
Life changing results!
I hired Amber because I knew her expertise would help me gain control of my schedule and elevate my business. Our work together has been life changing and has allowed me to manage my time better and streamline my commitments. I highly recommend working with Amber if productivity, time, or email management is something you struggle with.
Her skills definitely helped me in my business!
I was so impressed with Amber. She easily pinpointed areas that I needed to work on. Her skills definitely helped me in my business. She is really good at what she does and the bonus is that on top of it all, she is easy to work with, pleasant, professional and overall a terrific person! I would definitely recommend her.
Amber De La Garza, is my hero!
Amber De La Garza, is my hero! Her two-part masterclass Dominate Your Calendar & Conquer Your Email has proven to be an excellent investment for my business. Understanding the difference between checking email and actually processing email has been a game changer for me and a huge time saver. Finally, I now have effective techniques to tame my inbox, resulting in more time to grow my business. I love starting each day with a cup of coffee and a manageable email inbox—thanks, Amber!
Small changes that made a HUGE impact.
She helped me to organize my schedule and prioritize my day. Many of her suggestions were small changes that made a HUGE impact. I highly recommend Amber to anyone.
Full of unique ideas
I hired Amber to help me get back on track with my business. I was lacking organization in my back business. She helped me focus on income-producing activities and work on a day-to-day schedule that allows me to be successful. Amber is full of unique ideas, taking you from the norm to outstanding in my industry.
I have progressively increased my volume year over year and have worked on my business in the most basic sense. I found myself thinking everything had to be perfect before rolling out my drip campaigns, my presentations, or websites. She has made me realize that growing my business is always evolving and that over time the simple daily tasks will get me the results I desire and deserve. I highly recommend Amber and know she is there with me every step of the way!
Helped me organize my business from the ground up
Amber helped me organize my business from the ground up and really listened and catered to exactly what I was missing and needed.
Guaranteed to prosper and expand your business
I am so grateful for Amber’s mentorship through her S.T.O.P.! group coaching program. She helped me learn how to focus more on running my two businesses and become more organized in my personal and professional dealings, especially in my office. I gained great momentum and was able to quickly finish my 2019 vision board. I also had a great time working with the other professional individuals in our group. I encourage you to invest in your business by enrolling in Amber’s S.T.O.P.! program because you are guaranteed to prosper and expand your business.
I now have a clear path!
Amber helped me with next steps. I was feeling so overwhelmed with my accounting before our strategy session. Amber helped me to see how my reluctance to dig into the finances was holding me back in my business. She gave me actionable steps and held me accountable to some goals. I am still doing the work, but I now have a clear path and my finances are more organized than ever!
Great content and flow - I'm now more productive!
This course covered great content and flowed well. I especially liked the content on how to focus and I like Amber’s style. She has a wealth of information in many areas that I need help with. But it wasn’t just information, it was inspiration to create habits and routines to make me more productive. Since the program, I have better focus, use my calendar more effectively, and am more often able to create an environment that favors high productivity.
Great value for the transformative information and lessons given
I had been having issues with being able to effectively get my day started with a new assistant, finding a solid routine that balances work and home life, and getting all my tasks and calendars in one place which was a huge issue since I split time between offices. Since executing what I learned in the program, my assistant leaves me alone until our daily meeting (Amber’s suggestion worked like a charm!), I have consolidated all of my tasks to Trello, I no longer use paper for notes or task lists, and I am making progress toward fully have integrating Trello with my calendar.
While I still have a lot of work to do, I feel this (program) gave me some good basics to start me down a better path of time management. Some of the tips and lessons learned have truly transformed my ability to be more productive in the office. Amber did a good job at starting with a larger picture, identifying our current issues, and then breaking it down and providing solutions to those issues. It was a great value for the information and lessons given. I have spoken about it highly to numerous people.
Created rhythm in my week and seeing results!
After listening to Amber's podcast, and especially the on-air strategy sessions, I knew working with her would create more productivity in my week - and increase my potential to retain clients and create new client relationships - by making the most of my time.
My theory is my week is going to happen, one way or another, may as well be as intentional as possible at making the most of my time. With Amber's coaching, we have created a strategy that's created a rhythm in my week that takes advantage of my strengths. In a short amount of time, I'm already seeing results of the first framework we created just for me.
Took my production to the next level
Amber is thorough, highly detail oriented, personable, and extremely competent at what she does. She was able to guide me through each of the steps to step up effective systems for MY business, not a cookie cutter system that is used over and over. She took the time to understand my goals and establish more efficient and effective business systems to take my production to the next level.
Created the results we needed.
Amber provided training and created the results we needed. Her knowledge is what we lacked, her skills where exceptional, and the value was so worth it.
Her ability to translate words into action is amazing!
Through hours of talking, writing and demonstrating, Amber showed me how I can best utilize my skills, push my strengths to higher levels and grow from that. Her knowledge, experience and ability to listen and translate words into actions is amazing!
