I recently hired Evolve to Thrive to assist me in planning my staffing needs and clarifying roles of my team members to help us move into our next phase of growth. I was extremely please with Ms. Vernoy’s professionalism, knowledge and thoroughness at every step of the way. Katie provided some much needed strategic thinking around the org chart and coming up with a way to help move me out of the day to day operations. This created a real shift in how I see things moving forward and I appreciate Katie’s clarity, as I look to replace my current duties and move on to new heights. During all of our meetings and phone calls, Katie was always on point, responsive, a great listener and also knew when to take control to move me towards my stated goals and needs. Evolve to Thrive also found ways to increase support and infrastructure without increasing costs by clarifying team member roles.
Thanks for all your help, ideas and documents! I really appreciate the high quality level of what you provided.

Katie has been an invaluable part of me getting my footing as a mental health professional. Working with her has given me a whole new level of motivation, confidence, and understanding of building a brand and practice for myself in the community. I always look forward to our meetings, knowing that I will not only have a blast talking to her, but I’ll walk away with so many new positive ideas and goals for myself and my practice. I am so glad that I met Katie and have been able to supplement my clinical support from my supervisor with her vast expertise and support in the areas of marketing, networking, and business and career planning. I have definitely already seen positive outcomes just from 5 months of consulting with Katie. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to gain clarity and direction in their career!

I have been in the finance industry for 8+ years. By nature, I am very analytical and goal-oriented. The problem with these attributes is that I spend entirely too much time analyzing my business to find areas where I could be generating more revenue and increasing my time management efficiency. About a year ago I came to a point in my career where I needed someone who could help lead me down a path of efficiency, as well as someone that I could actively brainstorm with. I retained Katie at the beginning of Q4 2013. I had two goals: 1. I wanted to generate an additional $10,000 per month in revenue during that quarter, and 2. I wanted to establish a repeatable system to drive new business development, while at the same time providing a more robust client experience. Right away Katie was able to help me transform my thoughts into actionable ideas and she made it clear at the onset that she would hold me accountable to ensure that my goals were met.
To say my goals for that quarter were met would be an understatement! I more than tripled my quarterly revenue goal, while at the same time increasing my business pipeline 50% and implementing repeatable, high touch, client experience. I have continued to retain Katie, and in almost a year since we started meeting on a monthly basis I have increased revenue 50% year over year. Her consultative, detailed approach has been a blessing for my business and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to be more efficient and who wants to take their business to the next level.

Katie Vernoy continues to be a pleasant surprise to me in the business coaching world. My company is in a niche industry and a regular coaching model doesn’t fit with our goals and systems. She has custom tailored her expertise and guidance to work with me on organizing, establishing and attaining our growth goals. For the past two years, I have been the sole employee, CEO, sales, marketing, etc. for my company and as I continued to grow and hire on more help it was difficult for me to transition out of the micro-managing mindset and into an ownership and delegation position. She not only provides input, but solid, tangable systems that are applicable to any size business. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for business consulting services.
Katie is a treasure to work with. She is smart, hardworking, and thoughtful. When Katie takes on a project she puts her entire energy into it. She wants to help make others successful. I have been very lucky to work with Katie to have someone with such devotion and faith in what you do.
The Empowerment Space
Katie has been instrumental in helping me transition from working as a clinician in an agency into my private practice. She is energetic, motivating and creative, and at the same time, she’s patient, grounded and logical. Katie has been able to engage with my creative exploration process, and has exceptional skill in being able to pinpoint topics with sensitivity and purpose, which has helped me feel centered in defining my professional practice. Thanks!!
Katie has been my business coach for four months, and I plan to continue working with her. I meet with Katie once a month for 1 hour each visit, and I work on projects/assignments between each meeting. Katie is an amazing coach! I highly recommend her services. Instead of telling me what to do, Katie listens and then expertly guides me to finding solutions to the challenges I’m facing with my business and personal effectiveness. With Katie’s guidance I’ve learned to work “on” my business and not “in” my business. She’s taught me valuable time management skills, and I am now able to focus most of my attention on business system development. Katie has helped me make important positive changes in my life over these past few months.
