“I’m reaching out to let you know how much I love Conscious Marketing and your work. I read the book earlier this year, and it was an inspiration for POPNOD’s mission and purpose. I refer to the book often and have shared it with my friends, colleagues, and team. I recently moved to Melbourne, Australia, from Washington, DC, and thought of reaching out to you. Please keep doing what you’re doing, and I look forward to following your journey!” Stephanie David

The book captures and emphasis the importance for businesses to compete to be not only best in the world, but best for the world.” Alicia Darvall, B Corp
“When I read your book, I was so caught in a land of conversion rates, A/B testing, and optimization that I’d lost sight of the bigger vision. And as I read it, I kept jotting down notes of what the larger promise was, I developed the vision, and gained an incredible clarity. Not only did it help shape something that will be Stillmotion’s biggest launch, it has helped to make sure that what we launch is more effective, that we deliver on our promise. And that will mean real change in the lives of storytellers around the world, and by extension their audience.
So thank you. There will be somebody who travels to a far off country to chase down a story of the voiceless and forgotten, and they’ll use MUSE to help make it more moving, more intentional, and it have it make a larger impact. So thank you on their behalf as well. And that impact, that ability to help others connect their audience to things that matter, helps bring great peace in my mothers passing, as I know how proud it made it, and it was all she wished we’d find – our purpose.” – Patrick Moreau, Stillmotion

“I found our coaching more valuable than discussing strategies in marketing. Carolyn you have helped me get clearer with my purpose and mission. Since our phone session my attitude, energy and hunger are at an all time peak. I see the vision even clearer now and it energises me through the daily grind. So often people discuss business assets such as capital. equipment, cash etc. While these are important, the greatest assets are my values of drive, passion and discipline coupled with a sense of mission that gives me a big “why” and reasons to continue moving forward.” – Steve, VividMaths

I have much to learn. Thank you.” – Sharon Breslin, Lifestyle Journeys
Can you believe it is over 2 years since we worked together. I know you have done a lot in that time, and I often marvel at your ability to run with ideas and launch off the cliff and make them fly. You’re an inspiration.
Finally I am renewed. I have a new zest for life and I’m embracing my purpose without anxiety and fear, and with unstoppable enthusiasm and clarity.
Your words and guidance continue to ring true, and I find myself being that person I knew I had to be in 2014. Thank you for your wisdom, passion and integrity. I now have the confidence to naturally speak from my inner voice that knows what I deeply believe, what I want to fix, and how I can support people and businesses to express their stories in compelling and purposeful ways.
Recently I have begun having the most interesting, exciting, and meaningful conversations about possibilities. I’m sure they will develop into work that will have great benefit for many people.
