“Make Your Wildest Dreams Of Success Come True”

Before I worked with Dolly, there were factors taking their toll on my business and my personal peace: the economy, time and money developing a recession proof product, and the slow but sure demise of my father and mother – I was intimately involved in managing their caregivers and rallying my siblings for assistance. The compound effect of these three factors were taking their toll. Working with Dolly was an absolute pleasure – welcoming, compassionate, organized, and insightful. She was no stranger to business and I felt in steady and capable hands. Working in community with all the other students facilitated deep insights as to directions and choices. I was able to grow from a struggling artist with potential to a fashion designer of couture silk art wear for destination island weddings, honeymoons and resort getaways with a business – not to mention being happily remarried and moving to Hawaii. Dolly works from the highest of integrity and I cannot recommend her more highly. May working with Dolly make your wildest dreams of success come true.

When you’ve been a media executive for 30 years, it’s difficult for people to see you as anything else. I wanted to become a coach myself and get out of a profession that was increasingly frustrating and dead-end. Within five months of starting with Dolly, I had my own business and all that implies. I have been working with a wide variety of clients and specializing in helping small business owners and women who want to make changes in their lives. Through it all, Dolly was there, holding my hand, encouraging and supporting me. And because coaching is so holistic, Dolly also helped me through a number of personal issues as well. Jackie Harder

When I contacted Dolly Garlo I really could not define what I wanted to do next in life – but I knew I needed a change from my practice in medical oncology. I was beginning to feel that no matter how hard I worked or how passionate I was about every one of my patients – I was not making enough difference. For more than 20 years I listened to patient stories and saw their anxiety and frustrations during their hospital stays. I had accumulated a spiral notebook of ideas and thoughts on how to improve bedside patient care in hospitals as part of my own written ventilation against the status quo. Dreams are one thing – but bringing them into reality takes a leap of faith and courage. Without Dolly, I would not have been able to finally declare that what I wanted to do next. Step by step, together, we worked a plan – and the dream has become a reality. Sharon Conley, PhD, MD

“Brought My Passion Into Focus And Allowed Me To Produce A Plan For Realizing My Vision” I have a small business that’s doing well, but I needed to develop an exit strategy. I also wanted to act on my desire to give back to my community. And, I wished to have something live on after I was gone. Dolly’s program gave me all three by providing a structure for achieving these goals. I have been passionate about health and wellness all my life, but the program brought my passion into focus and allowed me to produce a plan for realizing my vision. I couldn’t have gotten so far so fast without the program. It gave me a roadmap for getting from concept to completion. I would recommend it to anyone! Robin Herskowitz
