Kind Words

Dr. Sharalyn Payne helped me to think bigger and beyond what I originally envisioned. I needed a push and someone that would force me to think outside of the box. Working with Dr. Sharalyn Payne afforded me the opportunity to clearly define the vision I have for myself and my entrepreneurial pursuits. All it took was one coaching session with Dr. Payne to define strategic goals and begin formulizing an effective business plan. I left our session with not only a sense of accomplishment, I felt empowered for the first time in a very long time. It was the realization that I was finally moving in an aligned direction; one where my vision, goals, and action plan all finally came together harmoniously. Dr. Payne’s experience and coaching is unmatched. Her innate ability to turn a vision into tangible, actionable results was the first step I needed towards not just envisioning a life I have always dreamed of, but actually living it!

I would like to tell how Dr. Sharalyn Payne has been a great help to me. Before I began working with Dr. Sharalyn, I was at a point in my life where I felt stagnated, hopeless and had a ton of never-ending projects. Dr. Sharalyn Payne has given me the tools and motivation to pick myself up and start to work on my goals and dreams again. I’ve applied the tools to my professional career, which resulted in a substantial salary increase and a promotion. I’ve also started working on my new business, which has always been a goal that I’ve had. Years ago, I got started, but I was never able to move it from point A to point B. Dr. Sharalyn has also helped me in my personal life. I’m travelling places that I’ve always dreamed of and checking goals off my bucket list. I’ve also begun to network and I’m enjoying meeting other women who have the passion to do the things that I am interested in. I am elated to be in the company of so many other great women.

Dr. Sharalyn Payne has been undaunted and is in a class of her own as a mega achievement and peak performance strategist. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her for many years. Her innovative thinking, knowledge-and indispensable resources has caused me to excel and capitalize in the business arena. She is certainly the person to connect with if you are seeking extraordinary success. Her wealth of knowledge and actionable winning steps caused me to gain a 100% return from a large legal technology company. I was denied a refund from this company. I was overcharged for legal services and disappointed that I was having to pay another firm to do what I had already paid. Their consultation, research, and legal renderings amount of time were remedial and legal documents rendered were flawed. Sharalyn’s critical and innovative thinking enabled me to recoup all of my initial investment into the case. Most importantly, she did what the legal company said was not possible and they could not produce. I highly recommend Dr. Sharalyn as a mega strategist.

Dr Sharalyn, I am writing this email to say thank you. Although those are the words, I have to express my gratitude, they are not nearly large enough to give you the thanks you are due. I was a person who has worked and developed my attitude and mind to be so positive and so strong, or so I thought, until I started working with you. In such a short time you have shown me another level of growth I will be able to maintain as a businesswoman, a soon to be wife, a mother, as a leader. I especially want to thank you for saving me thousands in a deal that I just didn’t feel good about. The relationship I have developed with you has allowed me to be so transparent, another thing I am so grateful for, a coach that I can confide in. I gave you all the details and you gave me the steps to take. Although I felt uncomfortable, I did exactly what you said and because of your guidance I saved over 70%. The way your mind strategically thinks has me more excited on my journey of becoming the businesswoman I aspire to be. You are my goals, and I thank you for taking me on as your client. I will tell the whole world you are the one to work with 🙂 Thank you, Thank you Thank you!!!!
