I’m happy to give Joan Nowak my highest recommendation as a business coach and mentor. Her unique ability to recognize, understand and explain complex business relationships has transformed my thinking, and most importantly, my actions. Along the way, there have been surprising (and sometimes painful) personal realizations, but her mentoring continues to make me a better person, both as a business owner and in my personal life.

Joan never hesitates to point out areas she sees an opportunity for improvement, and through her observations, opinions, and suggestions, she has proven to be right 100% of the time. Joan has given me the tools to become a much more efficient business owner, allowing me more time to enjoy with my family. Thank you, Joan!  [Google Review]

I hired Joan because I needed the spark to get me to the next level of my growing business. Getting caught up in the business and growing the business needed a line of separation that was hard for me to let go of. With Joan’s help, I was able to move forward under terms I was comfortable with – with outstanding results. I’m now in a position to oversee and guide the business instead of driving it forward – and my company continues to thrive.

Having Joan to throw out ideas and force me to strive to reach my goals has propelled me to a place where I am happy with “letting go” of the day-to-day operations and being able to concentrate on the final destination. Just so you know, the final destination’s roadways are never straight, but with a plan in hand, you will get there. Not Joan’s quote, but something I have learned, thanks to her.

Technical skills don’t prepare you for the many facets of running a small business. With more than 10 years experience and general success, we still had a few challenges that we struggled to overcome. Joan’s diverse business background was just what we needed.

She broke everything down into manageable bites and put us on a road to even bigger successes. She helped us tackle so many issues at once with ease. We see Joan as the most cost-effective and productive “employee” we did not have to put on the payroll. From marketing to financial decisions to employee relations, she fills many shoes and makes day-to-day operations so much easier. Every established small business could benefit from her years of expertise. She is an incredible asset.

Consciously Cool Chick LLC

Having learned a few things from my previous business, I didn’t want to go into my new venture, with my eyes closed, learning from mistakes and hoping it would work out. I needed a mentor or business coach.

After doing a lot of research, I contacted Joan Nowak.  We set up a meeting to see if working together was a good fit for both of us.  She spent a lot of time asking questions to learn more about me and my goals. I was impressed.  I hired her to help with my business plan. She did that and more. She helped me with the start-up process. I decided that she was an asset that I just couldn’t let go of so we continued to work together implementing the plan.

Working with Joan Nowak has far exceeded my expectations. Her knowledge is extraordinary. She helps me prioritize, keeps me on track, provides support when needed and encourages me every step of the way. I really love and appreciate our relationship and would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help building or improving their business.

Cardwell Heating & Air Conditioning

I hired Joan Nowak to help me with my start-up HVAC business. I had 15 years of construction expertise but no experience running a business. Joan and I came up with a plan and she keeps me focused and on-track. She has helped me with goal setting, marketing, and daily operations. Without Joan’s help, I think this whole process could have been very overwhelming. I would definitely recommend Joan to anyone who wants to get started right or take their business to another level.

I have met a lot of business coaches, but I knew the minute I heard her speak that Joan Nowak had a depth of knowledge that went beyond the usual rhetoric. I hired Joan to help me work through a particular business strategy that I was struggling with. She listened, asked questions and put her finger exactly on the issue that I was not seeing clearly. Then offered some practical suggestions! In a single session, I was able to move in a new and healthier direction. I would highly recommend Joan to any business owner who needs a different perspective or direction – on the big picture or on a particular issue.

Dust Collectors, LLC

Joan Nowak is a necessity for a business that wants to successfully navigate difficult times.  The Dust Collectors, LLC has been utilizing Joan’s coaching services for over a year now and we have seen drastic improvements in every area of our business.

As a business owner, having a coach is important. It gives you someone who you have to report your progress to on a regular basis  — keeping you on task.  One concern that many business owners may have is taking on the additional expense.  In the past year, the growth ideas and cost cutting measures that Joan has suggested have saved our company more than double what her coaching fees are.  The coaching pays for itself!!  Hybrid Business Advisors is a great investment for any business that wants to grow sales and improve profit.

Thanks to Joan Nowak, I enjoy going to work again! Prior to working with Joan, my profits were declining, staff issues consumed too much of my time and I had no clear, viable plan for achieving my long-term goals. Working with Joan has really made a difference.

I now have a great team of people who are committed to our patients, the business and each other. We have and continue to develop systems so I delegate more effectively and the team is more productive and contributes to our success. As a result, I am able to see more patients without sacrificing the quality of care I provide, which has led to increased profits. I would highly recommend Joan’s services to others.
