Growing from one location with three part-time employees to three locations and 10 full-time employees.

Meet Courtney Culnane, Pshychotherapist & Owner of Leeward Counseling

Before working with Hanneke: 

  • Courtney had a small office & three part-time employees and was squeaking by financially. 

Why Courtney decided to hire Hanneke: 

“I was sick of overworking and making less money than being alone in private practice, so I decided to look into a business coach.” 

Transformation experienced as a result of working with Hanneke:

“Hanneke helped me to define what a leader truly is, one that is caring AND has high standards and boundaries. Personally, she’s helped me get through so much self-doubt that I didn’t even know I was harboring.”

Team transformation:

  1. Helped me and my executive team clarify our vision and define our roles 
  2. Learn to have difficult conversations and improve company communication

Changes that happened in the way the business is managed as a result of working with Hanneke : 

  1. Most challenges have been with the interpersonal dynamics of having and growing a team and Hanneke has helped me navigate that, check my emotions and be the best leader that I want to be.
  2. She’s helped me time manage much better so that I can comfortably focus on what I like to do and am the best at. 
  3. She’s also given me the encouragement and mindset support to grow my business in a way I didn’t see as possible. 

End Result:

  • Increased profits, expanded to three locations and 10 full-time employees
  • Completely transformed the business to run more efficiently with proper lines of communication

From a Frustrated Team and CEO to surviving, COVID with a proactive team.

From a Frustrated Team and CEO to surviving, COVID with a proactive team.

Meet Brain Milauskas, Owner & Creative Director at Kidstock.

“If it wasn’t for the work that we’ve done together over the last two years, my business wouldn’t have been able to survive COVID. Because of Hanneke’s coaching, I’m able to weather the storm, and I’m excited about the possibilities that lie ahead.”~ Brain Milauskas 

Before working with Hanneke: 

  • Brian was getting stuck in the day-to-day of running a business and had very little bandwidth to effectively manage and lead his team.

Why Brian decided to hire Hanneke: 

  • When faced with a team who required guidance, I would often prioritize “getting them started” before finalizing my own thoughts on “where I wanted to go”. I led the team in circles to “keep them moving” while I determined where we were going to go, ultimately tiring them out and leaving them unconfident in what direction they were expected to lead themselves.” 
  • During the pandemic, Brian harnessed a new vision for Kidstock!, and his team and hired Hanneke to help him:
    • gain clarity about his vision,
    • effectively step into his role as visionary and business strategist
    • lead (and structure) his team by inspiring them

Transformation experienced as a result of working with Hanneke:

“My professional world has grown, matured, stabilized, and literally exudes joy. I am indebted to Hanneke for pushing me, understanding me, contradicting me, supporting me, laughing with me, and not accepting any BS from me. I am so excited about what’s next! The “clarity” of the past year’s journey has been rewarding, to say the least. You did not change who I was, but you changed how I saw myself, which changes what I can and will do moving forward.”

Changes that happened in the way the business is managed as a result of working with Hanneke : 

  1. Focusing on stepping out of the day-to-day tasks and focusing on profit-driving tasks
  2. Clear organizational structure and role definement of the entire team
  3. Systems and structures to support the business at any size

End Result:

  • Increased revenue, breaking the million-dollar mark (pre-pandemic, full recovery with projections for an even higher grossing year in 2022.)
  • A more proactive and independent team.
  • More focused business without losing the breadth and variety of the experience the business provides to customers.
  • A sustainable strategy to protect the business from future economic downturns.
  • Expanding into an additional location to increase the productivity (and satisfaction) of his team.
  • Brian is more joyful, and he’s excited about the possibilities that lie ahead.

Uncover your full potential as a satisfied and inspired business leader who can spot opportunities beyond your team’s wildest dreams.

“Today is a day to pause and reflect on the past two years, and to acknowledge, with debt and gratitude, the endless and consistent guidance, vision, and faith you contributed to Kidstock! staying in business.  I sincerely credit you with us coming out of the pandemic stronger than we went in!
Thank you, Hanneke.”

Expanding From One to Multiple Cities with Fortune 500 Employee Benefits (During a Pandemic.)

Expanding From One to Multiple Cities with Fortune 500 Employee Benefits (During a Pandemic.)

I hired Hanneke Hugo Antonelli right before the pandemic (because I was overwhelmed and in tears) and went from 5 employees in Boston to 25 in 5 cities and I’m doing it Like. A. Boss. Call her!” 

Janice Carte

Before working with Hanneke: 

  • Janice was overworked with no bandwidth to grow. She knew she needed to step into the next level of leadership to grow her business, but was having trouble stepping away and letting go of the daily responsibilities.

Why Janice decided to hire Hanneke: 

Janice interviewed several coaches but decided to hire Hanneke because of her qualifications, experience and no BS attitude. She knew it was time to do things differently and hired Hanneke to get the job done.

Transformation experienced as a result of working with Hanneke:

“I stopped running around like a nut-job doing all the low-level things. Hanneke helped me identify the big rocks that helped my staff feel supported and increased my bottom line. I did big stuff like contributing to my employees’ retirement, I spent time making my clients feel seen and valued, bought a house and created peace for me in my living situation, and I hired a director of Operations, and am currently in the process of expanding to another city. I pretty much went from being self-employed to running a business, and now have a team of 9, doubling our gross each year for the last three years. A year ago, I was angry and crying. Now I am more joyful, balanced, and expansive than ever. I have more time and I spend it doing what is important and what is truly valuable  to me.”

Changes that happened in the way the business is managed as a result of working with Hanneke : 

  1. Identifying and focusing on leadership tasks that drive profits
  2. Expanding to a team of 25 and counting, including the hiring of a Director of Operations to further free up Janice’s time to focus on profit-generating tasks.
  3. Created systems and structures to expand to new cities. 
  4. Fortune 500 benefits for employees.
  5. Focused on and defined Janice’s resilience routine to support her energy and mindset as she continues to grow.

End Result:

  • Doubled gross and increased revenue to break the million-dollar mark (projected to double again in 2022.)
  • Expanded team to 25 employees with benefits, and hired key positions to sustain growth
  • Expanding business to five new cities in the US.
  • Janice has more time, is more joyful, and balanced than ever before
