Testimonials

Lauren Donnelly, small business owner
Tackling both business and life issues
Before working with Danielle, I did not know fully what to expect because I had never worked with a coach before.  Danielle is easy to talk to, extremely knowledgeable, non-biased, and caring. I love how she and I are able to cover every topic on my mind, and switch between them seamlessly. She has helped me with my business and specifically creating a mission, vision, and values for my business.  She has helped me navigate hiring and managing staff. She also helped me work through and grow a LOT in how I've handled my relationships over the past 1.5 years and now I feel more balanced.  I would absolutely recommend her services to both fellow entrepreneurs who need help moving their business forward from the back-end (mission, vision, hiring, etc.) or someone who needs to work through personal growth.

Help me think through building my business
I was able to work with Danielle to tackle my ‘overwhelm’ but all while I was focused on building my business.  Danielle helped me think through decisions, tackle big projects, and get my mindset working for me. In my experience, so many different people can work with Danielle! A client doesn't have to be someone who is actively looking for a new job, but could be someone who just needs balance in their life. It could be someone who knows exactly what they want to do and is afraid to do it.  I don't think I'd have had the confidence to do everything so quickly without Danielle's guidance and confidence in me.

Finding a career that better exercises my strengths
When I first reached out to Danielle, I wondered if it would even be possible to achieve the career clarity I was seeking.  But after working with Danielle, I have focused in on my strengths and identified several careers that might help me better exercise them. I have a better understanding of the process I might follow to move into a new career, and have gained valuable perspective on what it realistically might entail.  I liked Danielle’s positivity and encouragement and especially her lack of judgment. I would absolutely recommend Danielle to others like me who are mid-career and wondering if they are ready for a career change.

Have renewed energy and faith in what I can do
Danielle is one of the most amazing listeners I have talked to. She has a gift and in this city that is rare. People ‘listen’ but do not ‘hear’ – she does both. I enjoyed my connection with her and felt like she listened, heard and responded with careful and thoughtful insight. I didn't feel like our sessions were cookie cutter at all - it was individual attention and that was very helpful in trusting her and the process.  As a result of working with Danielle, I trust myself a bit more to follow through with things, have renewed energy and faith that I can do what I set my mind to.

Helped me focus on my personal goals
What I liked best about working with Danielle is having her help me focus on my personal goals and providing objective critical thinking.   Before I signed up, I wondered what value I’d get from coaching and whether she and I would have a personal connection.  I am happy to report I was able to get outside my head for some grounding and centering advice.  I would recommend Danielle’s services for someone who is making a career transition, taking on a new project, or a life challenge.

Found a new job opportunity
What I liked best about working with Danielle was how the coaching resonated on a personal level. I appreciated the focus on identifying my strengths versus focusing on fixing weaknesses. As a result of our work together, I have found a new job opportunity and have more confidence in my strengths and personal value proposition as it relates to the work I do.

Finally tackling overwhelm
I came to work with Danielle to tackle overwhelm at work in a new job. There are lots of strategies and systems out there, and I've tried many of them. I was concerned that I would try something new and fail (again!). But after working with Danielle, I have adopted some simple systems that help me be more effective at setting and achieving long-term goals. And several months later, the systems have stuck! I would recommend Danielle without hesitation! She can help people in both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors, at any career stage. I’ve learned change is possible and implementing small changes can lead to big results.

I learned to listen to my own intuition
Danielle has helped me to learn how to listen to my own intuition. She has encouraged me to appreciate that my dreams and aspirations aren’t frivolous or indulgent. They are my authentic self asking to be heard. Danielle has provided me with important tools that have given me deeper knowledge of myself, and she has helped give me the confidence to embrace new paths that have already brought me immense joy and satisfaction.

New confidence
I was searching for a new and more satisfying career and life direction. That is when Danielle stepped in and began coaching me. She provided clarity where there had only been confusion and doubt regarding my life and career choices. She helped me identify and evaluate alternatives so I could find a path forward and gave me the confidence to embrace it. Danielle is so smart and thoughtful. She listens carefully and her assessments were always eye-opening and insightful. Through Danielle’s advice and guidance I was able to put aside my fears and begin the process of reinventing myself and seeking out new opportunities where I had initially seen none.”

I took my small business to the next level
I had the pleasure of working with Danielle to take my small business to the next level. When we started I was overwhelmed with small day-to-day tasks and couldn’t see the big picture for my company or my life! Each coaching session with Danielle was a positive light in my day. Talking through ideas with her was calming and productive. In a brief time, I was able to change course by prioritizing my long term goals, carving out time in my busy schedule to think, and taking time to remember why I started it all in the first place. I am already ready to sign up for more amazing coaching with Danielle.” — Carrie Patterson Owner, Yellow Door Art Studios Professor of Art, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

I focused on things that mattered most in my life
If you are interested in changing your life for the better, I encourage you to work with Danielle Droitsch. Insightful, professional, motivational while also results-oriented would be a few of my descriptors. Danielle has helped me focus on the things that matter most in my life, work through deterrents, and place me on a path to fulfilling dreams and goals that have been buried under the daily chaos of life. Thank you Danielle!”
