“SUM-it UP is for anyone who wants to grow from where they are today. You could have lost your job, you might want to change your job, or you might want to expand who you are by showcasing other interests you have.” ~ financial officer

“Getting more out of first couple weeks of SUM-it UP than months of grabbing bits & pieces elsewhere.” ~ book author

“SUM-it UP became my think-tank, support group, go-to team, and more.~ book author & educator

“The community it provides is its the MOST important aspect. Both Tara and Anastasia, but also the other people they attract to the program, are creative, open, active, and collaborative. This is not a community where your questions will disappear into the ether of the internet. There is always someone there who either has the answer or, at the very least, a suggestion of what to try because we are all on the continuum that is the ever-evolving internet. They give specific feedback on everything from, “do you like my new blog colors?” to “how can I improve my SEO (and what the heck IS SEO, anyway?)” to “do I really HAVE to use Twitter?”. In no way do I feel like I have all the answers, but I am very happy to have a posse that can likely point me in the right direction and share my little triumphs (and sympathize if I need to lick my wounds).” ~ creativity coach

“A wonderful group of international artists, writers, and creators.” ~ artist

GlobalNiche’s community best helps me by giving a different perspective, sharing ways I could connect with readers/buyers. Savvy of all sorts is easier as a member of this dynamic group.” ~ textile designer & tour operator

“I just witnessed how a strongly built virtual circle helps women all around the world connect genuinely and express freely their authenticity. Thank you for creating such an environment and making us a part of it.” ~ leadership coach

“Camaraderie. Chance to share and get feedback and build an on-going support system.” ~ artist & author

“I’m loving the prompt, positive feedback. It’s giving me the impetus I need. I feel supported and people think I have something interesting to say. It is incredibly motivating to see people’s vision materialize. It gives me hope and courage.” ~ academic

“I really felt supported. It was like home for me. I felt understood. I felt welcomed by these people who were just being themselves. It was wonderful for me to see their examples and get their support. It validated my natural instincts to to give and to share~ life coach


3.  You want to make sense of your many strengths, interests & needs.

From being a rabbit in the headlights of the internet, I’m surprised and proud to see myself hop from Facebook to Pinterest, from WordPress to LinkedIn, from G+ and even throw in the occasional tweet. Without SUM-it UP’s step-by-step approach and the patience and relentless encouragement of Anastasia and Tara, I would still be hiding in my hole.” ~ novelist

“I joined the program to jumpstart my visibility on the web. I doubled my Twitter presence just by learning about good Twitter etiquette.” ~ scriptwriter

Caused a thorough refresh of my website copy and a disciplined rethink on a number of social media outlets that I had previously neglected. Very valuable. Raised many good questions for my professional ‘persona’.” ~ leadership retreat faculty & organizational development advisor

“HIGHLY recommend! It helped me to: recognize and own how I am being virtually “seen”; make positive and educated changes to my virtual platforms; ask for support with the things I don’t know about social media; raise my internet outreach and effect to achieve my goals.” ~ landscape contractor

“SUM-it UP would be good for anyone wanting to expand their exposure in the world.~ transpersonal coach & author

Every woman should watch this 10 tools video workshop if she’s serious about her online visibility.~ founder of a global tech women organization

“For a long time I had a misconception about being visible. I saw it as “self-marketing” and ego-driven, yet I found that not speaking up to own my views, my skills or my experience did nothing to serve me. Two things Anastasia and Tara talk about have really resonated with me: setting a big audacious goal and the importance of connecting with like-minded people. When the goal is bigger than you, you reach out and connect with people to accomplish the goal. And for that you need to be visible. Things are already changing. I now understand how my online platform can help me and I started with updating my Linkedin Profile.” ~ software consultant & MBA student

“The GlobalNiche program will give you all the steps you need to take to find and choose the answers that will work for you.” ~ creativity coach
