Coaching. Customized Business Strategy. Community.

Whether you are in the start-up, sustain, or scale phase of your business you need a strategic growth plan. For many small business owners researchging on Google, YouTube, and attending various webinars is the foundation for their business education. To move your business forward you need accountability and coaching to leverage your sklls and talents. It is hard to go at the business journey by yourself. The CEO Life Academy will help you to create a holistic blueprint to have success in both your business and life.

Running your own business is supposed to give you the freedom to do what you want with your life. However, for many business owners, growing a business consumes far more time than any conventional job ever would. You don’t get to spend time with your family like you want to, you frequently feel like you’re one day away from burn out, you take work home, and you get stuck in the trenches of day-to-day work instead of being the creative visionary for your company. This situation ruins the joy and personal freedom of business ownership, and a lack of strategy, structure, and systems prevents your business from scaling. What’s the magic formula to succeed as a spouse, parent, and business owner at the same time? There is no magic formula; it’s all about priorities, boundaries, and striving for harmony instead of balance. The CEO Life Academy shows you the exact five steps you must master to grow and scale your business: Business Strategy, Unique Branding, Integrated Marketing and Sales, Leveraged Systems, and Decisive Leadership,

Almost twenty-five years ago she started her first business at age nineteen, on credit, with no business experience, and no plan.

Today, she has built several successful businesses in the technology, consulting, real-estate, and marketing industry.

T. Reneé is a serial entrepreneur and corporate strategist who has directly developed small business suppliers for Delta Air Lines and other fortune 500 corporations. She has assisted small businesses in obtaining more than $30 million in traditional and non-traditional funding capital.

Prior to working with T. Renee’ I was at a point of complete frustration. I am a go-getter and don’t believe in quitting anything but was at the end of my rope with writing my first book. I felt like I was all out of ideas and had said everything I needed to say. The questions that T. Renee’ asked me unlocked my creativity and pushed me to delve more into my topic. She also taught me that I needed to tell my personal story in order for readers to relate and emotionally connect with me. After each session I had a renewed sense of energy, creativity and momentum. I walked away with a ton of ideas and tools to push myself.

T. Renee has an amazing ability to problem solve.The biggest fear we had before working with T. Renee was that we weren't going to get results. Instead, things have changed in ways we couldn’t have imagined. Our revenues have increased by 15%; our staff is operating more efficiently and we are working less. Our entire team feels empowered. T. Renee has a true gift for pulling out the best in people. She is very firm, but kind. You will not regret working with T. Renee. She is a true gem and worth every bit of what she charges. It is one of the best investments you will ever make.

T. Renee' provides so much value to her clients that are lost in their business and lacking specific direction/guidance. She provides 100% clarity every step of the way. T. Renee is truly a business strategist. She helped me experience many light bulb moments. Prior to working with T. Renee I had tons of ideas with no place to start. Her coaching has helped me gain clarity and shape my ideas into a plan that I can implement. She also helped me to prioritize my marriage, family, and business. Without this knowledge I would still be stuck in the cycle of trying to determine where and how to start.

Prior to working with T. Renee I felt very stuck. I knew I needed better organization and a more professional feel however I did not know how to achieve that. Now I feel like I actually have steps to take and know a direction for my business. I became very clear on my big WHY and what I am meant to share with the world. What I like most about working with T. Renee is her positive attitude, encouraging ways, and the break down to business basics. For the first time I truly feel I have a honest blueprint for what I want my business to look like now and in the future. I would highly recommend working with her.

I felt other coaches didn’t understand my unique challenges in being a wife, mother and entrepreneur. I resonated with T. Renee's focus on work and business integration. Her coaching helped me gain clarity and shape my ideas into a plan that I can implement. While working with T. Renee' I gained clarity on who I want to serve, how to serve them and how to tailor my message while remaining authentic. I would highly recommend T. Renee' as a coach. She is knowledgeable, personable and professional and helps you challenge your limiting beliefs. She encourages your spirit and helps you connect with your true purpose.

My favorite part of working with T. Renee’ is how she breaks information down into a conversational fashion. Before working with T. Renee' I was in the beginning phase of learning how to structure my business, deciding which services to offer, and knowing who my target audience should be. Since working with her I have gained clarity, narrowed my focus, and know how to invest my time and energy. I am more focused on operating in areas that I enjoy and am passionate about. I highly recommend T. Renee' for clarity, strategy, and accountability. She pushes you to your full potential.

I loved T. Renee’s step-by-step method for showing me how to set realistic and achievable goals for my business. I am very cautious when it comes to investing money into training and coaching programs. However after reading T. Renee’s blog post and watching her online training videos I decided to sign-up for one of our coaching programs. After watching The CEO Life Academy's first two modules I had already mapped out my entire business for the year. She helped me identify income opportunities, create a product funnel and sales process. Her monthly coaching sessions are on speed-dial. It's great to know that I have someone like her on my team.
