What they say about Shelley:

"Balancing a full-time job with study is never easy, but producing an honors thesis while maintaining 50 - 60 hours working weeks seemed an insurmountable task. One weekend with Shelley made me re-think my approach and break it down into small, achievable goals. She inspired me, encouraged me and, most of all, enthused me about the journey ahead - a journey which ended with success! Shelley's approach is sensational. I highly recommend taking the next step, and attending one of her Champion Goal Setting Workshops."
Belinda Lawton, NSW

Kathy Cummings, General Manager, Third Party Banking, Commonwealth Bank of Australia
