I have a business live painting weddings and came to Joel about 1 1/2 years ago when I was stressed and overwhelmed. My packages were vague and as a result I often found myself engaged in long and seemingly never ending loops of revisions and requests from clients. Joel helped me re-frame my offerings in a way that both reduced the chaos and increased the income. The first year implementing his suggestions was my most easeful and profitable year so far, which is saying a lot considering I've been doing this for 15 years! I can't recommend Joel highly enough. He really took the time to understand my business AND my needs as an artist. Though the business side isn't my strong suit, I feel confident Joel has my back and is there to offer new perspectives and approaches. I recently got in touch regarding 2020 pricing and offerings and was delighted to work with him once again. I can't wait to implement the changes and keep moving my business in a positive direction.

I worked with Joel Siegel for over 3 years as he taught me leadership skills to work in a family owned business. He brought other skills to the table such as marketing, communication, human resources to name a few. Family businesses are very unique and face many different problems that normal businesses do not. Joel was there to help lay a foundation for the future. We continue to stay in contact and give each other updates.

I have been supported by several professional coaches in my career - but Joel's empathetic and practical approach was refreshing and enlightening. As a new CEO of a start-up - I was challenged with issues including an over-involved founder and an undesirable slip into a family-based business model.

Joel's expert perspective and experience with this exact circumstance enabled me to keep things in perspective while I attempted to establish necessary boundaries and assert required control as the company's hired leader.

I found Joel to be accessible, responsive and insightful - and relied on his counsel heavily during a most challenging time. You cannot go wrong with such a partner in your court, and I recommend him without reserve to support any executive with his objective, experienced advice.
