“I have been working with Julie Keyes as my Business Coach since March 2014 and she has literally changed the course of my career. Julie was able to help me reach down deep, to get really clear about my goals and dreams. This process resulted in the birth of an entirely new business in the last year. Not only that, Julie has helped me to manage the transition of launching a new business,while still maintaining my existing business. She has provided invaluable guidance, resources and encouragement, at each step of the journey. I cannot imagine where I would be without her. If you are considering working with Julie, do it. It will be the best decision you could make, to be successful in everything you are aiming to achieve!”

Julie gave a business strategies/best practices webinar to my customers. It was excellent and extremely well received. So well received I’ve asked her to give a presentation at our Trade Show and Hort Academy. My customers wanted more of what Julie had to say!!

I have been a part of the local Twin Cities Exit Planning Institute since its inception in May of 2016. There has been incredible engagement with the Business Advisor Community who now have a forum to collaborate and ultimately better prepare Business Owners for a successful exit. I would credit Julie, who has been the Chapter President since the beginning, for the phenomenal success of the chapter because of her tremendous passion and leadership skills.
