I can't say enough about Lisa Anderson and Anavo! I needed guidance with business proposals and when to use them. Lisa listened and knew exactly how to help me. She transcended me to the next level. I don't think it was a coincidence that shortly after our consultation, business inquiries picked up and I had to submit five proposals in two months. I received nothing but compliments and approval on what I was worth as a motivational speaker. I would highly recommend Lisa Anderson and Anavo to any entrepreneur looking to boost business.

I have had the immense pleasure of working with and observing Lisa in a number of different capacities, over many years, and no matter if she is serving as CFO, CPA, Success Coach, Teacher, Advisor, Entrepreneur, and trustworthy friend and professional - all of which, she does consistently well - she has led and managed with integrity, business savvy, emotional intelligence, fearlessness, and execution mixed with loads of success! She has been recognized numerous times within prominent circles for her expertise and leadership, and I count on her as an insightful sounding board who provides motivation, inspiration, analytical power, and healthy doses of courageous conversation. I recommend her as necessary counsel to any seasoned or emerging business, entrepreneur, and leader.
What can I say about Lisa? There are so many positive adjectives to describe her. Personable, motivating, professional, sincere, honest, smart, and willing. I've known Lisa for over 15 years personally and always knew she was special, but it wasn't until I started venturing into entrepreneurship that I realized what a true gem she really is. Lisa knows all there is to know about starting and growing a successful small business. She understands the challenges that will be faced and how to overcome them. She is a long term thinker who is also extremely capable of understanding the immediate next step that needs to be taken to reach a goal. She has worked with and coached me as a small business owner and simplified my complications, even when they have been self-inflicted. If you are a small business owner and in need to guidance, encouragement, and that "PUSH", there is no way you can't afford to spend some time with Lisa. Her advice is invaluable and she really does know how to help you reach your goal. If you are willing to follow her advice, the possibilities are limitless.

I knew that I was at the point in my organization’s growth where I wanted and needed someone who was willing to share about their business experiences so that I might become more confident in my own decision making; someone that I could talk to and get my thoughts straight; someone connected and respected by others in the local business community; someone who was accessible and was a good listener; and, someone that cared enough about me and the growth of my business to invest in my success. This list of business, as well as personal, mentoring qualities and attributes clearly guided me to Lisa Anderson.

The experience I encountered exceeded my expectations! I came into this agreement with the understanding that I would receive some tips and maybe some warnings about the pit falls of starting a company and the whole process of the evolution of one’s purpose. The coaching sessions were phenomenal and right on point. They were tailored to me and my challenges. Lisa’s ability to capture, through conversation, my heartfelt concerns, fears and hopes for the future, were amazing. This program has catapulted me into the next phase of my life, career and spiritual growth. [Lisa’s] effectiveness is very evident, as it has moved me from a place of notion to action, dream to reality and fear to belief! Lisa provided more than assistance – she shared her wisdom and resources of information that became a critical part of catapulting me to the next level. I started meeting with Lisa in November 2014 and incorporated my business in January 2015! That is amazing and well worth the investment as well as building a relationship for life!

[Lisa] has transformed my thinking. My obstacles are now growth opportunities. My “mistakes” have become best practices upon which to build. She is very inspiring and has helped me transform my “lemonade stand” mentality into something greater. My confidence has been greatly increased through her encouragement and expertise.
