    Lao Tzu

  • Testimonials

    "Jimmy: Toughest. Dog. Ever."

    "I’m shy about talking about my books, much less selling them. Barbara Lemaire gave me the confidence to do both. She prepared me every step of the way, walking me through the necessary prep for a podcast interview, thinking of details I never would have thought of. She even did a few interviews with me herself, to warm me up. Her insights into what I needed meant I was prepared and positive and my first podcast came off great! I can’t speak highly enough about Barbara’s thoroughness, thoughtfulness, and deep knowledge of what an indie author needs to go out there and pitch her book."

    "Interstitial Cystitis: A Personal Journey of COMPLETE Healing!"

    "As a first-time book author, I had no idea how to market to my target audience. Barbara developed a plan, outlined strategies and tactical steps, identified appropriate outlets and social media platforms that ultimately maximized book exposure and increased sales, and opened speaker-engagement opportunities."

    "The Queen of Ketamine: How Comedy & Ketamine Saved my Life"

    "Barbara recently demonstrated the uncanny ability to delve deeply into my soul and have my creativity and confidence soar. With just a few clearheaded words, she sort of turned on a light and gave me the insight I needed when I was severely stuck, inside the revision of my memoir. My writing jumped light years ahead, and I have no doubt that later this year, I will finally find an agent. Thank you, Barbara! "

    "Transformation: Creating An Exceptional Life in the Face of Cancer"

    "It’s my pleasure to write a recommendation for Barbara Lemaire. I’ve worked with her on and off for the past seven years. The first time I hired Barbara, she taught me how to use all the features of LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to increase my connections and develop a following for my products.
    When I decided to write my autobiography, I chose Barbara to coach me through the process. She asks the right questions, especially the hard ones. We agreed on tasks and deadlines which moved me along in my writing. After I completed my book, Transformation: Creating An Exceptional Life in the Face of Cancer, she worked with me to sharpen my interview skills and to become comfortable doing presentations and book signings.
    Barbara is a patient coach and expert in her field. I highly recommend her as a consultant to authors and entrepreneurs wanting to create an edge over their competition."
