Testimonials & Praise

Testimonials from women overachievers, polymaths, and founders on their journey to becoming successful, happy and free.

I now have a much better understanding of the big picture, of what needs to be done and in what order. It has helped me put all the pieces of the puzzle together and now I feel I have a solid foundation to build a business that is sustainable. I feel more in charge of my own fate, like I understand how it works and how to do things consistently for sustainable results, which is truly liberating and pacifying.

Maria Arredondo
Business Renewal Coach

I went from untapped power and not knowing how to build up my business to having a website, coaching program, ideal client, online systems in place and much more confidence in my ability to see my business through and as a coach, with something unique to add to the coaching profession. The Mastermind provided me with a solid group of confidants, friendships and possibly partnerships that will last a lifetime!

Brianna Strumm
Heart Rehab Coach

My lifeline is coming back to me. I know it’s self-love and it’s consistent now. I’m not alone anymore. There are other people like me. It’s liberating to know! To have a witness to my commitments actually goes a long way. I needed someone to listen and be the voice of reason during setbacks. If you have the talent and want to get to the Olympics, that’s where Ella takes you.

Jennifer Singh
Actress & Spiritual Speaker

They say courage is contagious and so is persistence. Ella has both in spades!! She always gets me to do big, brave, badass things AND see them all the way through. What I love most though is her gentle and graceful way. She never needs to kick my ass. She just believes in me and tolerates no bullshit from me and I'm inspired to do my best!

There's magic sauce when we're together... I'm 10X more focused than on my own. Thank you for helping me achieve my dreams, be a better leader and stop beating myself up. "Put the bat down" is the most endearing piece of wisdom I've learned from Ellany.

N. A.
Founder of digital nomad community (privacy respected)

My company has over a million subscribers. I know what I'm doing. When Ellany and I first chatted, I knew I didn't need a coach. As I watched her live her wild crazy freedom, I felt an itch. For freedom. Which I hadn't felt in a long time. After we spoke again, I remembered how calm and centered I felt after our call.

Ellany simplified everything. It was nearly impossible to admit that instead of simplifying my work, I overcomplicated my work and then overcompensated to master the complicated. Ellany has a graceful way of telling me "good girl," "no," and "bad dog!". You were an unexpected teacher, Ella, thank you for the joy.

I've spent the last few months gathering information from different sources and learning as much as I can to move my business forward and without a doubt, the last few hours I just spent with Ella helped me more than anything else I've done.

Ranya El-Farnawani
Career & Leadership Consultant

I loved the small group, it was a thought-provoking safe space to share and learn from you and Maria and the combination of your two personal flavours was wonderful. My biggest leap of faith was hiring a VA!!! Yay and it's been wonderful and so freeing.

My biggest take away was the need to create my business around my life and really understanding the use of leverage. How best to use my time, to create a sustainable business via group programs and info products.

Candy Motzek
Professional Co-Active Coach

You totally rock! You understand me. It’s a vulnerable process to redesign my online presence. Thank you sooooooo much, I feel you as a strong ally. You’re just a gem! I’m left excited and empowered. I have truly enjoyed working with you.

Leslie Lupinsky
Master Certified Coach & Author

I feel so much more focused and clear. I decide! I decide who, what, when. I've given myself full permission to rest and live and put myself first. One of the greatest things you had me do was collect testimonials and see for myself how amazing and capable I am. Thank you for guiding me along the way. You've given me confidence and a soft place to land.

Christina Michael
Reiki & Massage Practitioner

I was on a roll with my coaching biz and even got called the coach's coach. Then I got married and my priorities changed. I felt so embarrassed to my 8,000 followers, like I "quit" on them and on my business. Ella held my hand through the emotional tunnel (aka shame) of reconnecting with my followers, my biz and and my pre-marriage self.

Her cheery presence felt like sunshine and I didn't expect to laugh and cry so much. It was cathartic! If I learned anything it's that you don't get a trophy for walking that tunnel alone. Ella always had her hand out for me. Take it.

I.T.
Owner of online coaching practice (privacy respected)

Ella has become an expert at excellence and innovation, an expert in life. A fearless adventurer, she has been everywhere and has done almost everything, while staying down-to-earth. I sincerely believe anyone who works with Ella will find themselves inspired and naturally reaching higher grounds.

Dr. Valerie Coté
Pediatric Otolaryngologist

Ella is an excellent coach. She is very knowledgeable and has an amazing intuition…She can spot what is going on very quickly and support you with love and firmness to move from stuckness into action.

Ella helped me to break many fears and barriers, and gave me a powerful road map. Lots of transformation! Working with Ella was a deep experience and I would recommend it strongly!

Cristina Ramon
Professional Coach

There was a huge gap between the look of our web presence and the energy of our practice. Ellaa filled that gap. We tried a few changes ourselves, but really needed an e-marketing expert like her. She understands our holistic work and is helping us spread the word on patient wellness.

Dr. Joyce Chen
Network Care Chiropractor

With my 3rd business I accepted that I need personal support, not just for my business, as the leader of my company. Thank you for providing me dedicated one-on-one devotion and for looking after my happiness. I needed you to remind repeatedly to work smart, not hard.

Asking for support was a challenge, but receiving support was an even larger challenge. I'd wanted to be strong and do it all without help like my previous two businesses. It has been so liberating to confide your deepest, darkest worries, to a trustworthy professional. Like Ella says, "Here, you can take your superwoman cape off." Thank you for keeping me sane.

A. C.
Founder of e-learning app company (privacy respected)

Coaching with Ella has been a really empowering process. The most important impact was becoming honest with myself, realizing it is time to take back the steering wheel and truly lead my life. Thanks to this coaching opportunity, I was able to start this process much earlier than I would otherwise have. I am going through the Leadership program now and I am absolutely grateful for this wonderful journey.

Dr. Sindy Chan
Physician

What I enjoyed most about my coaching journey was the continued support and reminder of the end goal and higher vision. The most valuable thing I gained was focusing on clear intentions, and what do I really want to see show up in my life, and why.

Katherine Taylor
Health Coach & Fitness Trainer

Ella works with you as an allie to bring your ideas to life. She’s an inspiration and business doula! She has the ability to help you give shape to your passion until it becomes a viable business product. Smart + heart = success. The tool of Time Blocking has freed me from overwhelm!

Megan Murphy
Speaker & Film Producer

Our fast-track day was exactly what I needed. So much got done! It was so simple, I love how clearly laid out my business is, and I feel sooo much lighter. Sitting down with you helped me get clear on how I make decisions with my time, energy and direction. I am planned and secure! I am capable of freedom! I am not alone on my island, but Queen of my Island!

Christina Michael
Elite Fitness Champion Trainer

Ella's personable style made her a joy to work with. I also appreciated when she understood that I needed more life than business coaching, and hugely supported me in my personal journey.

I feel like I have a solid foundation from which to grow my business. I was so grateful to have her guidance in the creation process. I saw other fellow coaches struggling to create their programs, but with Ella's support, I had so much fun with it!

Jobina Bardai
Founder of Unleashing Miracles

Ella is my brilliant business fairy godmother. With massive smarts and experience—and a light heart—she helped me navigate my way to a business strategy that’s a uniquely perfect fit for me. It’s not only streamlined and simplified, it’s also bigger and more soulful than I’d imagined it could be.

Karen Olson
Leadership Coach & Founder of the Elemental Life

Thank you for our session, again. Money pretty much rolled in from unexpected places for seven days straight after our call and more continues! Such a huge shift and so much permission that you gave me. Thank you dear Ella.

Jessica Serran
Founder of Unchartered Creative Callings

Working with Ella has been very beneficial and helpful in many ways - both practical and spiritual. It feels really good to have Ella in your corner. I’m really proud of conceiving my coaching program and finding time in my full life to build my business. I've achieved more than I thought possible. Holy pat on the back time!

Brianna Strumm
Social Worker & Instructor

Thank you for our AWESOME fast track day! I was stuck in a rut and in one day, you helped me to get to the bottom of why I was stuck, break it down, and create an implementable solution. You helped me to remember my vision for the business and use that as my frame of reference.

You gave me really practical organizational and planning tools that I implemented immediately and are already making a big difference. The busyness tracker is a phenomenal way to plan out my time for the week, month and year. We accomplished so much in one day!

Elena Brennan
CEO & Founder of CareConcierge

Ellany has more common sense/marketing savvy/business best practices in her little fingers than most coaches have in their whole body! You absolutely rock the planet. My business presence makes ME want to be my client! The energy that comes through is superb.

Anastacia Metcalf
Change & Growth Coach

If you're planning on upgrading your coaching business, contact Ellany!! She'll coach you on what you want, guide you through what you need and make you feel good about it every step of the way. Creating a business with her at your side is so much better than doing it alone. You will save yourself so much time, stress and you will make a lot more money in the end too!! :D

Sabrina Hickey
Career Advisor

I'm not crazy. I can do this. I can go at my pace. It is possible to move from getting paid per hour to a more passive income model. I feel more "at peace" and confident with my life and business. I'm trusting that though I was working less hours I would still make enough money.

Kristen Smith
Piano Studio Owner & Teacher

We are thinking on the same lines, and you are the first person to really get my online business dilemma. Thanks so much for your ideas, structure and direction. I super love your sense of aesthetics and way of thinking. It is very clean and clear.

Anastacia Metcalf
Director of Somato Respiratory Integration

I am very impressed that you so accurately described my wish list.  Your perspective on ‘business wellness’ has added a powerful definition to our work. So big THANK YOU for the web analysis! We love your proposal and are very excited about our work together!

Joss Rowlands
Leadership Coach

I was taken by your desire to do what you do really well to make others shine! It makes such a difference. I have a friend who offered to do work on my online presence, but I would love to work with you instead, as our passions are aligned.

Inga Michaelsen
Business & Leadership Coach

Working with Ella was above and beyond my expectations. I am aiming high in my business, and I knew that in order to reach my vision, I needed to work with someone who had already achieved the kind of success I had my eye on. After working with her, I have full confidence to create and offer my high-value coaching program.

Ella identified my best working style, and guided me towards seeing my greatest strengths. I had originally perceived these as weaknesses, but Ella showed me that this is where my true genius lay.

Jobina Bardai
Law of Attraction Coach

She helped me get clarity on what I needed to do, how I was going to do it, and most importantly, why I was doing it! I now feel more confident and clear about how I am going to grow my business and I'm sooo excited that I can't stop smiling. ;)

Ranya El-Farnawani
Career & Leadership Consultant

I have done B-School and other mentoring programs and non has set me up for success like Six-figure Simplified. Ella has given me not only the practical guidance on how to get my nutrition business on its way to becoming a thriving practice, but also the inner skills I need to navigate myself, my time and the world around me. That in itself is priceless.
 
I am so grateful you had me do all the work before hand. I now have everything I need right here. I feel like I can rock this now. Just wanted to say an extra thanks.

Alyssa Bauman
Nutrition Expert & TV Personality

I built a following of 20,000 subscribers who read my blog every week. You could say I had an existential crisis wondering when will it ever feel enough? I can't seem to produce results fast enough and it's starting to hurt my relationship with my partner.

Ellany and I started with business mentorship (pacing my crazy demanding self and setting realistic goals), but she already knew that we'd change over to working on self-worth and self-compassion. It's felt like a long six months. I feel like a different person now. I am a different person. I write to Ellany every week to thank her for our deep work, it's soulful and practical all in one.Thank you, Ellany, namaste.

M. G.
Relationship mentor and author (privacy respected)

I had a breakthrough call with Ella and she was the third coach I had connected with. She was the best hands down and it made my decision to engage her so easy. I was blown away with the call and how she got me to dream about my future and what was possible for me.

I would advise anyone who is considering working with Ella in any capacity to book a call with her and you will see how terrific she really is at co-creating with you. I did my first breakthrough call with a potential client and your enrollment method was perfect!

Victoria Welsby
Badass Coach

I was particularly (and pleasantly) surprised about how the whole process made me slow down, and that has been priceless. Beyond this, it’s been incredibly fun and insightful to work with the amazing Ella. A great experience altogether.

Maria Arredondo
Tango Dancer

It IS lonely at the top. In the last half decade I've built one of the world's leading online business schools. It was thoroughly fulfilling... until it wasn't. Until I met Ella, no one understood how hard it's been for me as an introverted woman entrepreneur in an extrovert-biased man's world.

Ella, thank you for helping me wade through the challenges of living authentically while maintaining a strong professional front. Every coaching session I told Ella what I wanted and she told me what I needed. It was irritating at first lol! Ella left a permanent mark on me: kind, insightful, loving support. She makes psychotherapy meaningful and hilarious, a hidden gem!

A. M.
Founder of online business school (privacy respected)

As soon as I met Ella, I knew I had to work with her. She had built her business in a way that I wanted to emulate, so what better of a person to learn from! With going through her 6 month program, I was able to see how I had built parts of my business in the wrong order and there were other important aspects that were completely missing!

I now feel way more equipped to run my business in a professional way and be able to get my message out to the world more effectively. Ella's program was the best investment in me and my business that I have ever done! A big hearted Thank You!

Sheila Sutherland
Speaker, Educator & Coach

During these months, I’ve had “aha” moments over and over again. I took the time to give myself that gift of reflection and understanding of myself. It’s accelerated the personal growth that is integral to the field I’m in. This solid foundation will keep holding me up to be able to go so much higher.

Coaching with Ella is about helping me do the work in a better way, with tons of support and cheering on along the way. It also gave me confidence and it was so much easier with a coach and an instruction manual of sorts. Be ready for that infusion of excitement!

Danika Overmars
Certified Clinical Counsellor

With Ella as my coach, I feel like I’m going to be able to bring nutrition knowledge to clients much more efficiently, avoiding a lot of common business pitfalls along the way. I felt heard, I felt understood. Moments of insight came often. Having a guide to walk me through the "How", I’ve been able to make leaps & bounds in letting go of my own fears and gaining direction, forward momentum, clarity and confidence. This has been a hugely life giving experience!

Joanna Bowen
Holistic Nutritionist

Ellany's unique blend of rich wisdom and hefty practical advice left me wanting more, so much more, time with her. As honest and refreshing as a strawberry straight from the field, and as delightful. I didn't know it, but I was a kid with a freshly-dipped bubble wand -- Ellany's words were like a gust of wind, manifesting bubbles of opportunity by the dozen.

Corri Lobbezoo
EQ & Creativity Coach

Ella has two exceptional talents - one, she is a master of mindset, creating new narratives and perspectives where there were none before. Two, she always has wisdom nuggets in her back pocket - that come in all forms from mantras to paradoxes to straight up advice. Her sunny cheery personality always brings light and energy to our sessions, I always hang up feeling re-energized!

Danika Czubak
Certified Co-Active Coach

I went from scattered with lots of ideas to now having the framework and strategies for my business. My greatest take-aways were learning to align with the greater vision of my life and knowing that I am enough. I feel like every time you send me an email I've just come out of the spa feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. Thank you!!

Sabrina Hickey
Professional Development Coach

I’m proud of myself for even starting this whole journey! I’m generally the care giver in all other aspects of my life, so asking for help and inviting allies into my world, has not been a habit of mine. It felt great to commit and follow through – I’ve been erasing some negative voices from the past through the process. I’m back to my 10 year old mentality; “I can do anything”!!

Megan Murphy
Speaker & Workshop Leader

Ella delivered the academic, no-BS approach that I intuitively knew she would from the first few moments my eyes landed on her website. I already have a successful coaching practice and Ella met me where I was -- I've gone from overscheduled, scattered, overwhelmed, and wrought with too many ideas to having the rest of this year and all of next year mapped out. And I have a much clearer sense of what to say "no" to so that I can stay focused and productive. Invaluable.

Jill Grunewald
Founder of Healthful Elements

Our sessions let me get clear on what I was leaving behind and what I was inviting in. I now have the right mindset to tackle business roadblocks and fully express myself in my marketing and image of myself. I can do ANYTHING. I loved the templates you gave us. I had a-ha moments around the fact that I can follow in the footsteps of those who have gone before me.

Danika Czubak
CPCC, Leadership Coach

You have clearly demonstrated a commitment to increasing the participation of women in a field traditionally dominated by men. We are proud to have young women with your degree of potential in the McGill community.

Louise Proulx
Vice-Principal of Research

Ellany has a gift for helping people give effective form to their dreams by crafting a vision that reflect the intent and culture behind my product. Co-creating a business presence with her that is powerful, attractive, and effective has been easy and fun... and freeing.

Carrie Mancuso
SRI Wellness Educator

Your work is stunning! It is a dream to work with you. My life is much easier now on this system. I have already made many easy changes myself. Ellany makes her work purposeful and fun. She inspires people around her and has an incredible capacity to generate energy and action.

Deborah Smith-Sauve
Head of Development

You are my inspiration in so many ways. Thank you for showing me what courage looks like. You're the ideal person to be a professional coach. Your energy is contagious and defies any distance!

Debbie Li
Finance Manager

You rock!!!! Truly amazing and you are such an inspiration. No doubt we see your excitement, immense online skills, expertise and passion. There was absolutely nothing missing in terms of sharing your business expertise in the Network Care realm.

Dr. Shannon Patterson
Network Care Chiropractor

I can always count on Ella for unconditional support. She has an amazing way of shifting my perspective, looking at the positive, and uplifting my spirit. It’s such a comfort to know that there’s a coach like Ella out there constantly believing in me and championing me towards my dreams.

Se Young Kim
International Human Rights Officer

Ella is a person with a warm heart and a bright mind. She does her work expertly and meticulously, and truly cares about people. Rarely have I met anyone like Ella, who has accomplished so much and continuously strives to grow, personally and professionally. I am sure, many people are inspired by Ella's can-do attitude.

Rosanna Von Sacken
Visual Facilitator & Coach

Ellany coached me with humour and understanding as I started my business and went through a difficult time personally. Thanks for your support, Ellany!

Corri Lobbezoo
EQ & Creativity Coach

Ellany is one of the smartest people I know and I treasure her advice and counsel. Anyone who places themselves in her capable hands can rest assured that the coaching and service they receive has had the attention of one who possesses tremendous creativity and expertise in equal measure.
