After reading The Pumpkin Plan by Mike Michalowicz, I knew I needed a business coach with the same mindset and the expertise to use the highly effective tools outlined in the book. I was matched with the perfect Pumpkin Plan Strategist for me, Susana Fonticoba. I so look forward to our weekly calls, which is precious CEO time. I have gained more clarity and direction with the Pumpkin Plan tools, and Susana’s expertise has helped me grow my business by 300% this year alone! I am deeply grateful for how well Pumpkin Plan Your Biz nailed this match!
When I reached out to find a Pumpkin Plan Strategist in 2017, I knew I needed not just a coach, but a business coach. Donna Leyens matched me to the perfect Certified Pumpkin Plan Strategist for what I needed, Dr. Sabrina Starling of Tap the Potential. Dr Sabrina has a way of speaking directly to the core underlying issues like no other coach before. It’s been priceless to have an ally with which I can discuss anything about my business, and she is able to help me see the solutions. I continue to work with Tap the Potential two years later, as the support, knowledge and accountability have propelled me to pursue and achieve my professional dreams.
Working with a Pumpkin Plan Strategist is the best thing I have ever done for my business. Before Pumpkin Planning, my business was stuck in a holding pattern. The tools, guidance and support that I received from my Strategist enabled me to breakout of that holding pattern, double our sales in the next year and grow my team to realize my big vision.

Amy Nubson. Co-founder, Nufire Marketing. Certified Pumpkin Plan Strategist since 2019. Based in U.S.A. My passion is assisting businesses to be profitable, productive and sustainable. I started my career as a graphic designer with a love of design and marketing. After working with businesses on their marketing for over ten years, I discovered that many business owners needed help focusing their ideas and concepts in order to effectively attract their ideal clients. They also lacked a sound business foundation and systems to handle growth, causing stress and frustration. I became a Pumpkin Plan Strategist to assist those businesses in transforming to a stronger company with a real focus. I am driven to support business owners to live and work the way they want to – making more money, working fewer hours and having time for the best part of their lives.

Condredge Dole. Certified Pumpkin Plan Strategist since 2018. Founder, Makers Guild. Expertise in creative and maker industries. Based in Canada. Creative people like us are a unique bunch. We see the world differently, so we approach business differently. I’ve been running businesses nearly my entire adult life including my current woodworking business. A common misconception (one I’ve been guilty of too!) is that artistic and creative businesses are different or special, so the fundamental principles of normal business don’t apply. Nothing could be further from the truth, which is why so many creative people struggle. I would love to guide you to find your path to success in your creative business. Let’s talk! makersguild.space
