Belinda approaches each person as a unique individual with a unique set of skills and talents to offer.

She then helps them craft and develop a plan, so each can maximize their own abilities to the utmost…rather than give them a cookie-cutter solution. She has not only helped me tremendously, I have watched her guide many employees who have worked for me, as she inspired them to newer and greater things. I think there is a fundamental reason why she is so good at what she does: she measures her own success by the success of the people she is helping.”

“Belinda’s a corporate rebel with a heart of gold. But she doesn’t stop there. She won’t rest until your outside-the-box business is a Renegade Reality! Helping you shatter the mold (and laugh all the way to the bank) isn’t just a pretty saying for Belinda. It’s her passion. If you’re finally ready to STOP living someone else’s business dream. And start living your own … she’s your first (and ONLY) stop.”

“Belinda is a force of nature! She is as insightful as she is
entertaining.

Not only managing to quickly inspire her audience with her down to earth, no nonsense message of identifying their core values, but she leaves a very lasting impression of the importance of self-responsibility for success and improvement.

There are many speakers out there who are inspiring, yet that inspiration is usually short-lived in our over scheduled and busy lives. Belinda is an extraordinary exception –she manages to deeply plant her seeds of inspiration, leaving you to contemplate her words of wisdom long after her lecture. I eagerly await my next opportunity to hear her speak again as I am confident that I will leave enlightened and empowered yet again.”

“In the first fifteen minutes that Belinda Pruyne coached me, she gave me a foundational idea that easily paid for her entire coaching package,

once I implemented it. This is how it’s been. I’m now attracting bigger clients because I think BIG. And that’s the genius of Business Innovation Group. With Belinda’s insight, I’m talking to bigger clients. With her wisdom, I know what to say in the follow up, how to approach the relationship. I don’t consider myself to be a timid person, but I was undervaluing myself consistently. Now I’m asking for more of what I’m worth, and feeling so much better about myself and my marketing agency.

Since working with Belinda I’ve established a more solid baseline income, I’ve been able to hire an Account Executive. I wouldn’t have wanted to figure out this kind of growth on my own. Having a bigger business means I need more people. Belinda and I workshopped through that process, so that terms would be clear.

My confidence as a marketer has improved. Belinda helps me frame my thoughts, so that I speak with authority and confidence, instead of fear and desperation in my new client meetings, and even in my own self talk.

Belinda provides a healthy dose of encouragement in her coaching. She doesn’t waste my time with platitudes, though. We get down to business, strategizing about how best to deal with client problems. She quickly deals with my questions. In all of that, Belinda is sparkling. She has wit and wisdom and panache. It’s a joy to work with her.”

Lisa Kann

Since working with Belinda, I go into every meeting fresh, letting the meeting evolve without controlling the outcome.

And I always speak truthfully about what outcome is possible and what is not. Belinda pointed out my courage. I would never have recognized it.

I now feel confident to ask others for help.

I real enjoy speaking with Belinda. She is insightful and easy to speak with. Encouraged me when I felt so alone in life and let me know someone cares.

“I was blown away by Belinda’s ability to articulate the challenges and opportunities of being a corporate executive in today’s global market place.

She gave us tangible tools to work with that helped us get the most out of our employees. To motivate them to go the extra mile, use their initiative and create solutions that were unique to what had been done before. She was engaging, funny and had a clear approach to getting more out of fewer employees.”

“Belinda gave me the tools, in the right order, to be able to move outside my comfort zone.

This allowed me to apply my experience and job skills in ways I didn’t think possible.

Belinda’s coaching helped me navigate through a lot of uncertainty with great positiveness.
Looking back, I could not have done it myself.

I am now working in my desired field in a challenging and valued role. Looking back, I could not have navigated the amount of change alone.”

“Inspired, to the point and sassy!

Belinda Pruyne lays out the foundation of what you need to know to be a field innovator. If you are looking for clear information on how to stand out and get away from the same ol’ same ol’ Belinda is for you.”

“One key was my change in both attitude and business focus.

I was getting very clear on what was holding me back and began to think beyond what I judged as possible. Belinda helped me to see what my values were and how much of what I valued I was tolerating. The shift in my awareness and support in making specific changes in supporting my needs helped me step out into a bigger arena. I learned to stay true to my style and to who I am as a professional. I was not cookie cutter stress and pain management teacher.

While working with Belinda I learned that I could have support in my growth and did not need to do my business alone. I now have a Virtual Assistant. I am more open to trying new avenues to expand my business. My business has grown to allow me to balance working privately with clients and B to B.I stopped doing the work that was draining me to make space for what will nourish me.

I began not trusting anyone and not wanting help. I did not take good care of myself and that has been a big shift for me. Belinda helped me to not be afraid to make a mistake and learn from it. Most of all, I have learned to value my skill and expertise and never to shrink back from charging for it.

Working with Belinda was very supportive and compassionate experience, but very clear and direct, saying what needs to be said to support my growth. Working with BIG was more than growing a business, it was personal growth as well. You cannot do one without the other to succeed in all areas of life.”
