What Clients Are Saying
I decided to "take the plunge" and invest in myself, my career and my future. Margie Geiser has given me skills and insight that I need to build a successful business and so much more. Margie has taught me through personal calls, group webinars featuring experts in a variety of business areas and even an in-person day of consultation. What I learned under Margie's guidance will always be with me as a valuable roadmap, both business and personal, for whatever I want to dream and achieve.

Margie has helped me believe in myself.
Having a successful business is my number one goal. However, I had no experience with marketing and promoting myself. I studied dietetics in undergrad and grad school, so I don’t have a business background. At the start of the program, my biggest obstacle was a lack of belief in myself.
Margie’s guidance has helped me not only to gain confidence, but also to get my business up and running in a few months time. I’ve worked with her since the beginning and the program has helped me become marketing wise.
I really enjoy having direct access to Margie as a mentor and knowing she is only a phone call or email away. In the Platinum program we get these emergency calls, which are a lifesaver. At one point, I was getting ready to talk with a prospective client and having some doubts. I got on the phone with Margie and she helped me prepare so that I could walk into the meeting and nail it!
I know I can be successful as a consultant now and working with Margie has given me the resources to do it. I’m anxious to see the results as my business grows.

I wanted to reach more private clients.
I am a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist who has primarily worked with corporate clients. Most of my experience has been consulting in various health care settings, so I know how to go into corporate and land an account. However, I wanted to change direction and reach more private clients.
My goal has been to launch a nutrition business that is focused on personalized and group nutrition. Even though I have a solid background in my field, I didn’t know what steps were necessary to build this business. I knew I could fumble around and try to figure it out on my own, but it made more sense to bring in Margie.
The expertise that Margie has in what I do technically has helped me to quickly take my passion and build the private practice side of my business. She understands both my field AND the business development side, such as setting up nutrition programs and thinking more individually. She is uniquely qualified as a business coach to help me because of her professional background.
I am in the early stages and my practice is continuing to shape and grow. I know that I will be phenomenally successful because of the guidance I’ve received.

If this were easy, everyone would be doing it.
I was shy while growing up and tended to stay on the sidelines. I needed a push to get my business into shape and saw the value of the Platinum program right away.
Working with Margie has helped me increase my visibility and gain more clients. My network has expanded through guest lectures, attending trade shows, and basically getting out of my comfort zone. Having these experiences has stretched my capacity and rewarded me in many ways.
The thing I like most is being able to touch base with Margie every week and ask her questions. I love her personality and the consistency. You hit a lot of bumps along the way and one of the biggest benefits of the program is that I’m still going strong!
When you don’t have a business degree or sales training, coaching definitely gives you an edge. My goal is to become well known and help more people. I work with clients across the nation and internationally, so I’m well on my way.

My biggest obstacle was how to start
My plan was always to go directly into private practice after my internship. Since most dietitians don’t start a business right away, I felt completely lost and alone. I didn’t have a clear direction.
I had been with Margie for about a year prior to working more closely with her in the Platinum program. I signed up for one of her free coaching calls and when I heard about the program, I knew it was the answer.
I really love collaborating with Margie. There is so much comfort and reassurance in knowing she is just an email away. The Platinum program has given me the structure and stability to put my plan into action.
Working with Margie has given me a significant peace of mind. I see myself doing a broad range of things in the future—from taking on private clients to writing articles. It’s great to have a solid foundation in place. Thanks, Margie!

A year to date I have doubled my sales.
When I came to Margie, I had no idea how to package my services and increase my rates. Like most dietitians, I only offered single sessions, and it was a big deal for me to change this model.
A year to date from the start of the program, I have doubled my sales! The Platinum program has given me the tools to develop packages and price them accordingly. I have also gained a lot of marketing knowledge, such as how to best navigate online and social media marketing.
Another great part of the program is the accountability. The coaching calls make a difference when they’re consistent and you’re setting new milestones each week. The accountability has helped me to focus and stay on track.
In the future, I anticipate developing more services and higher end programs. I am thinking about offering information products and webinars to reach more people. When you have this knowledge, there is no limitation on your growth.

Spending a few hours problem solving is worth it.
I work at an all-natural health care clinic as a health coach and I also do marketing. When my position turned from volunteering into staff, I had a variety of roles and was lacking direction. My biggest obstacle was determining the next steps. I wasn’t sure if I should stay with my current job or go out on my own.
Margie listened very carefully and helped me work through some new ideas. She also helped me quickly realize I wanted to stay in my job AND enhance it. We looked at avenues for making my role more directed. One of the best results of our session together is I was able to propose to my employer a better working arrangement. The session has helped me come up with conclusions that make sense.
We run a 12-week boot camp and one of the bonuses of the call is we were able to create an outline that explains it more clearly for marketing materials. Taking a few hours to do problem solving also helped me to prioritize. I retired from a long career in health administration, so I only wanted to work half time. Thanks to the exercises and conversation with Margie, I have the direction to do that now.

My target market is well-defined and focused now
A year and a half ago I decided to pursue my business full-time. When I took the leap, I was pulled in many different directions at once and I wasn’t sure where to focus my energy. I didn’t have a good elevator speech and wasn’t sure where to begin. Yet, I knew there had to be a way to tie everything together.
The Niche Breakthrough Secrets VIP helped me do what I was not able to do on my own. Margie gave me a unique process to discover the business I’m really in and the words I can use to define myself. I walked away with two main priority areas and a deeper focus. I also realized that some target markets are more viable than others.
Within a few days of the call, I started redoing my website, focusing on who I’m targeting, and even making better use of my time. The session has reenergized me and helped prioritize what needs to be done. I feel motivated because I’m focused on my clients, while also planning ahead and taking my business in a smart direction.

A few days after the session, I had a payment discussion with a client—and got up the courage to ask for the amount I wanted without a glitch!
I have the service-oriented gene. That means I don’t get as excited about big profits as I do about being an advocate, change agent, and coach. Doing good is what fires me up! So, when it comes to money, I just want it to happen, but I don’t like talking about it.
Since the Niche Breakthrough Secrets, I have really embraced that I am WORTH being paid well because of the incredible VALUE I provide. It has helped me realize what I contribute to the many groups I serve and how I can enhance this even more. Now with a clearer end point in sight, it’s easier to share the benefits with my clients—and have money conversations that feel good!
Margie taught me to refocus my knowledge and skills into programs and markets that make sense. As a resource for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, and direct support providers, I’ve refined my approach. Instead of looking at just the big picture, I hone in on what families need most. Our session also opened up a brand new market for me, one that was out of my comfort zone (being a health advocate for older adults), but that I am really excited about now!

I have a new way of marketing my business without adding any new programs.
I’ve been in business for over 13 years and have recently moved from being part-time to full-time. I realized I needed to grow to keep a full-time schedule, but I’m on my own and didn’t have another person to bounce off ideas. I especially wanted direction and feedback from someone in my industry. I know I can learn a little here and there by reading and having discussions with other dietitians, but it made more sense to get a coaching session.
The Niche Breakthrough Secrets VIP with Margie gave me good, clear direction. It has provided the clarity I needed to make small, but significant changes. I have not added in any new products or services, but now I can breathe new life into my business. The best thing about the session is she gave me a new way of thinking about and packaging the things I’ve been doing for years!
Margie walks you through the process one step at a time. It’s nice to have somebody ask you the right questions. You’re getting answers you may have known all along, but Margie helps you put them on paper. I’ve realized that just by promoting my services a little differently I can expand my business without creating brand new programs. These tools are allowing me to market my business in a whole new way.
