My husband and I are on the planning committee for a 2006 conference in New York City for 300 people. They are elite members of an organization of global leaders in business, industry, and civic life.

Ruth Ann Harnisch, President The Harnisch Family Foundation

Barbara is magic incarnated. She holds a sacred space for you where you can grow further than you ever imagined, and she helps you do it in a way that is both daringly playful and deadly serious. Being an A-type personality with a lot of ambitions, I was frustrated at first when she didn't push me in a way that I expected. I thought I needed a stern coach to take the reins of my life.

Lotta Alsen, Entrepreneur, Coach & Yoga instructor
