When I first started my business, I was inspired by other women doing amazing things, such as investment coaching, teaching technical courses, marketing coaching, fitness training, business coaching, providing business services, or any number of things, using their unique skills with a feminine touch.

Angela and I first met online when she was an online reputation specialist. After doing that for a while, she wasn't quite feeling the vibe anymore, so she segued into investment coaching, which was more her style.

The following chart is a screenshot of the potential growth in cases for Tennessee without any measures to slow the spread of COVID-19, what 3 months of social-distancing would result in, and how that compares to the number of hospital beds available in the state.
