"Lori's style and work ethic was impressive to me on many levels. Her inquisitive diagnostic questions about me, my staff, and the operations of Girlilla Marketing were so well thought out that even before we began our training sessions, I felt I had learned a very important lesson. My entire staff felt their individual sessions with Lori not only helped us as a team with our outward facing communication, but also shed light on the internal workings of our company and led us to many positive changes that we would have not made or even thought of without Lori's expertise."
Jennie Smythe - CEO, Girlilla Marketing
"Working with Lori was awesome! From working via the Internet to meeting in person, Lori was always professional and very knowledgeable. She focuses on the client's individual personality - she does not work off of a cookie-cutter formula. I could not have chosen anyone better with whom to work."
Kori Yates - Author & Speaker
