Tara's support and resources were exhaustive and all-encompassing!
Before I started working with Tara I struggled with having clarity in my business. I was wasting time and energy trying to help everyone! I was serving three completely different audiences and this was affecting my ability to grow my business.
In working with Tara, I discovered how to build a business working with the one niche I'm most passionate about and one that is built on the foundation of what matters most to me. What I’ve learned about myself through my work with Tara has served as a key decision-making filter for all my life choices, in and outside of my business.
Through our work together, I finally knew what I really wanted. I built a streamlined approach in my business. Tara's resources really blew my mind. I got so much more than 1:1 coaching and a "program." The support and resources provided were exhaustive and all-encompassing, which was great for someone like me who was relatively new to coaching.
I’m thrilled that I now have a program and materials in place that powerfully serve my ideal clients. I have a complete webinar/signature talk that I've been able to market to my ideal clients as well as present to audiences at major corporations. Most of all, I have clarity and confidence about what to do in my business!
Tara has supported me and my business through all of life's demands: while pregnant, as I navigated family challenges, and over the course of the 2020 pandemic. Today I am grateful to have her as an ally and a friend.

Tara has helped me identify my own power as a coach
I tried doing business development on my own and when that didn't work, I partnered with a couple of colleagues to "get through it" together. When I still couldn't get traction, I called Tara. I needed her methodical approach and deep business experience to provide the structure and support that energized me.
I have a deep appreciation for Tara's ability to sense what is going on for me during our coaching sessions. She is finely attuned to my shifting energy and emotional state, asking just the right questions to take me deeper. Tara has helped me identify my own power as a coach and to be proudly loyal to my inner drive to serve those I so passionately enjoy serving. Coaching and building my business from this energy rich place has transformed my business and how I show up in the world.

With Tara you feel like you have a partner, someone who will be there through the difficult times and the celebrations
Finding the right coach can make all the difference. Instead of struggling, being alone and unsuccessful, you have a trusted business partner to connect and collaborate with to build a successful business. Tara Butler Floch is that trusted business partner for me. She has a unique combination of experience as a coach, paired with her background as a corporate VP of Sales and Marketing. She also has expertise and plenty of patience in copy editing which is extremely helpful in writing website copy, proposals, and marketing and training materials.
Even more important is her trustworthiness, collaboration and connection. With Tara you feel like you have a partner, someone who will be there through the difficult times and the celebrations. She is a necessary partner in my business and I would never have had the courage, tools or support without her. Without her, I’d still be sub-contracting work with other companies, too nervous to go out on my own. With Tara, I have been able to launch a business, create a process that had exciting work land in my lap, and find the work and clients I really want. Her mastermind group has also provided me with peers mostly in the same boat, willing to share resources, ideas and support, which adds to the three-dimensional level of support you get when Tara is your coach and mentor. If you’re considering working with her, just do it! There are a lot of other unuseful coaches out there and she stands out high above the rest.

I highly recommend Tara is you are ready to go to the next level
Before working with Tara, I struggled with not having enough clarity on who I worked with, what their pain points were, and what I had to offer them as a coach. I had started a coaching business on my own and desired to expand on what I had built but didn’t have enough business knowledge or direction to get my ideas off the ground. Working with Tara was extraordinarily insightful - she is a fierce thought-partner who navigates you through the difficulties/insecurities of learning about how to create and grow a coaching business. And all the while, feeling excited to attend the “School of Tara!” I would highly recommend Tara if you are in the first stages of growing your business or ready to shake things up and go to the next level

Tara is the best support partner I could wish for
When I decided to work with Tara I wanted to get clarity how to market my business and reach the women I really wanted to serve. I also felt totally overwhelmed by all the marketing advice out there and needed somebody to help me structure my approach, soothe my worries and show me a red thread of how to move forward so that I would stop trying to put the cart before the horse. Tara brought clarity and structure to my business and what I love even more is her personal support and encouragement to bring my creativity and passion forward into my coaching. I feel much stronger in my business and as a coach through her support. I am really glad to have found Tara, she is the best support partner I could wish for.

Tara has made a huge difference in my business. I am 180 degrees from where I started
Before I starting working with Tara, I was spinning my wheels, not sure how to build my coaching business. I knew I was a good coach and I knew how to market, from my career in that field. But, I didn't know which tools I needed to use or how to talk about myself as the product. I was also not "niched" down enough having three target markets, one of which I knew I didn't want to work with any more.
Through the work I did in Tara's program, I was able to pick one niche for my focus - Women Leaders who are looking to improve their effectiveness in male dominated environments. And through my research, it was clear what these clients needed to further their careers. So, I have created a comprehensive customized program to help women leaders master their current roles so they can reach the next level in their careers and make the most of their true talents.
Tara has made a huge difference in my business. I am 180 degrees from where I started and now have the confidence and a plan for where I am going. I have a marketing plan and have started to have some real success with it. I have learned so much about how to create a coaching business, the right way. My income is growing every month so I know I am on the right path. The beauty is that I didn't have to figure that out by trial and error because Tara has the knowledge of what works. I feel like I know what to do now and I am doing it!
Jill Avey Coaching
I knew the moment I first spoke with Tara, that she was the one and unlike any other!
When I decided I was in need of a business coach, I did my research. I knew the moment I first spoke with Tara, that she was the one and unlike any other! SO easy to talk to and packed full of insight.
Before I began working with Tara I felt lost in the sea of options to take when starting my business. I struggled with too many ideas and not a clear and efficient way of succeeding in my goals - what were my goals!?
In working with Tara I got that and more! As I grew into my business, Tara did too. She understands me so well that her advice and assistance on my website copy and business materials fit into my vision immaculately. Tara is tuned into my voice and the message I want my clients to receive!
Tara’s resources are immense. Her library of information, videos, and workbooks are a testament to how helpful and knowledgeable she is.
Tara is certainly a key to my growth and success and I am honored to have been able to work with her. More to come in the future!

After working with Tara, I'm clear on how I'm moving forward
Working with Tara has been a true gift and I recommend her as the coach's coach for anyone who wants the tools to get their coaching business up and running and building a thriving practice that is "light and right".
For the record, I know I'm not an easy client. I have been self-employed for most of my adult life and managed to become successful in many areas of my work. Yet, I struggled in attracting the right clients. Traditional approaches and programs have not worked well for me and that's the reason why my experience with Tara was so special. She provides the tools to get clarity on my niche and the structure to build a practice from practical application to resources, to connections.
Tara is a powerful coach, so you will get solid coaching while you're building your practice. She is endlessly curious, filled with love, super supportive, and swift to challenge you when she feels you are shrinking.
I've done a lot of personal work between therapy, coaching, becoming a coach going through CTI's 10-month leadership program. The ROI I got from my time with Tara is invaluable because I'm so clear on how I'm moving forward with my coaching practice and in my life.
Carly Ebenstein Coaching
I'm so grateful for Tara's mentorship and am glad I went with my gut to have her as my coach!
Through my work with Tara, I powerfully claimed being a Leadership Coach for Women of Color, and built the foundation of my business. As a newer coach, I knew I had the skills to reach mastery in my field, but needed help being an entrepreneur—I was pretty clueless!
Her program helped me clarify my ideal client, write my website copy and create an extensive market research study around their biggest challenges and needs. This enhanced my confidence that I know who I’m serving and provided external credibility with my market.
Tara also helped me build my 9-step coaching program! She encouraged me to stop charging per session at an extremely low rate (never again!) and start enrolling long term clients under 6-month and 10-month packages instead. I'm now gaining 4x more per client because I'm providing a stronger service and structure for my clients.
I'm so grateful for Tara's mentorship and am glad I went with my gut to have her as my coach! She guided me through the ups and downs of starting and growing my own coaching practice, and I can't imagine I'd have gotten as far as I have without her support.
Nadia Deala Coaching
Tara's coaching has me move forward with confidence and success!
After completing my coach training program I felt fully prepared to begin coaching except I didn't know how to begin building my business of coaching. For a year I tried to get my practice going, but felt completely overwhelmed.
When I began coaching with Tara, she immediately took me in hand, walked me (literally) through her process to help me find my perfect niche and to discover a much deeper version of what I have to offer.
Step by step, I created my my practice, my signature speeches and what to do next and how to do it. I am fully confident now, and on the way to filling up a previously pretty empty practice.
Tara really knows her stuff, and presents it in a logical and comfortable way. The extra resources she provides are extremely valuable.
Most coaches I know are struggling along or have given up. Not me! Tara's coaching has me moving forward with confidence and success!
Brown LaValley & Company
I'm now making 2-3x more per client and playing a bigger game
Working with Tara means you are playing a bigger game. Even if you are a solo-preneur, you’ve got a coach who knows corporate too. Every time I was on the phone with Tara, I dreamed bigger and got things done. As a result, I developed my new coaching program, got clear on my audience, refined my signature talk that I now do 2x a month, completed my sales pages, created a great freebie downloadable, and stayed on track with my newsletter. Tara makes it so fun to do the business development side of your business that you just do it. Thank you, Tara, for helping me take my business to the next level. I’m now making 2-3x more money per client!

Tara is a fantastic mentor coach who has guided me through many challenging client situations
Tara is a fantastic mentor coach who has guided me through many challenging client situations. As a result, I feel more confident and well equipped to handle whatever comes up. I've used Tara's thorough process with thought provoking exercises to figure out who my ideal clients are and learn how to attract them in an authentic way. I also really appreciate her support in helping me re-brand my business including her connections to other professionals like web designers, logo designers and copy writers. I am so grateful for our work together. I've realized all the benefits I hoped to and more when I began this journey over a year ago.

Tara is an amazing coach! Her keen insights, support and “in the trenches” business experience is outstanding.
After interviewing four potential coaches, I chose Tara to be my business coach because of her experience, dedication to her clients and a no-nonsense approach to growing a new business. In working with her I discovered who my ideal client is and how to be more strategic in my outreach efforts to those clients. Tara helped me mastermind a project where I interviewed a group of Executive Directors and CEO’s of non-profit organizations to help me better understand their challenges and opportunities as leaders in their industry. This process helped me to customize my services to these leaders that are specifically related to their individual needs and become a lot more attractive to my ideal client. Tara is an amazing coach! Her keen insights, support and “in the trenches” business experience is outstanding. Tara is a consummate professional and has been instrumental in helping me build a successful, fun and meaningful coaching and consulting business. Thanks, Tara!
She has a wealth of knowledge and a big heart
Before working with Tara I struggled with prioritizing my business. I struggled with how to describe what I do and who were my clients apart from everyone. I was not clear on my offer so I did not promote myself.
In working with her I discovered my niche. I gained confidence in what I had to offer and what I offered was like no one else. I saw value in my offer and the need for it in society. As I talked to people about my niche, my passion grew and their curiosity increased.
The biggest value from our work together was prioritizing myself. Putting myself first and telling others ‘No’ in order to do my plan. Doing and Being what is important to me not what I ‘ought to’ or ‘should do’.
I had not doubt that Tara had my back and was on my side. She also has a wealth of knowledge and a big heart.
Tara is a graceful and perceptive guide and mentor who will partner with you where you are
When registering for Tara's Client Enrollment Training my intention was to learn a skill for the future. After closing a thriving healing practice to free myself from the effects of a chronic virus, it seemed essential to build a solid foundation with systems in place before venturing into business again. I wanted full confidence that as the pace of business quickened, my body would continue generating greater expressions of health.
During the call she highlighted the importance of honing the enrollment conversation, inviting those who wanted practice to send her a note with our email addresses. She followed up with a group email, a template, and words of encouragement.
While practicing the enrollment conversation, I realized how completely ready I am, and the vision began taking form. The long resisted niche' was clear. The enrollment conversation became my own, and a new coaching program with support materials is writing itself.
Tara is a graceful and perceptive guide and mentor who will partner with you where you are. Her broad awareness of how to navigate the territory with laser like precision saves time, money, and the frustration that comes with not knowing how to take the right steps in the right order. Coupled with that, the comprehensive resources and materials she creates provide an easy-to-follow blueprint for success. I highly recommend Tara!
Now I have clear direction and feel energized!
Before working with Tara I felt really stuck in developing my coaching business. My marketing was not focused and I was spinning unproductively.
In working with her I discovered huge clarity about who I wanted to serve and how I wanted to serve them. I reconnected with the type of work I truly want to do.
Now I have clear direction and feel energized to grow my business and know I can provide great value to my clients.
Higher Gear Coaching
Tara has helped me nail my niche in such a beautiful, powerful way.
Before I started working with Tara, I spent two years working with some very big name coaches doing their group programs. I had great experiences and learned a lot from them...but something was missing. I could not seem to nail my niche and my ideal client. I knew it was holding me back. I hired another business coach and was really hoping that some one on one would do it, but unfortunately he was not the coach for me. Although I was feeling super motivated, he was not able to help me get clear with my niche like I needed we did not get very far.
I knew i needed a coach and I put it out to the Universe as such. I don't know how I found Tara - I joke that God found her for me! We had our Discovery session and I knew (but went on to do 5 more exploratory meetings with other coaches JUST to make sure!).
This past year with Tara a lot of things shifted in my personal life and I was not able to rocket ship off the way I had been hoping to and was prepared to do in the year or so earlier, but Tara was amazing through it all. She met me where I was. I never felt judged. Only 100% love and support as she listened and gently guided me forward. And in the process Tara has helped me nail my niche in such a beautiful, powerful way. I am coming back to where I was and am in the process of creating my website, logo, and free gift. She also helped me change my signature talk (which I thought I had honed with my other coaches!) to feel so much more authentically me and I have gotten such better results in getting people to raise their hands to work with me that are really a great fit. I am SO excited because NOW I know my business is going to soar!
Sexy, Soulful You
I couldn’t be happier with Tara and her work! In less than 7 months, I’ve seen a 30% increase in my practice growth
Before I started working with Tara, I struggled prioritizing where I should put my time and energy to grow my business and create a great client experience. I also had no experience identifying which marketing activities would yield the best outcome. After 3 years in business, I had reached a plateau even though I had a solid academic and clinical background. I needed to grow my expertise around managing the business aspect of my practice. After working with Tara for less than 7 months, I’ve seen a 30% increase in my practice growth. I’m clear on my priorities and areas of focus, which has decreased my stress level significantly. I’ve tightened up my practice policies so that clients have access to me for support, but there are more limitations to my pro-bono time. I’ve identified where I would like to do pro-bono work, and now handle it more purposefully. My scheduling, accounting, and marketing are now streamlined. I have focused on marketing activities I am passionate about – such as speaking and group workshops – that are getting great results and are fulfilling to me. I spend less time organizing, and have more time for professional education, projects, and free time. My business is thriving and I have more work/life balance. I couldn’t be happier with Tara and her work, and expect to continue growing my business with her support.

I firmly believe that Tara is the missing link for coaches who passionately want a lucrative coaching business! She is a miracle worker!
Before working with Tara I had spent an exorbitant amount of money on another business coach and other business building programs with no tangible results. I still had no ideal clients, no marketing strategy, and no pipeline. In working with Tara I discovered precisely who my ideal clients are, what specific marketing strategies work in the coaching field, and how to implement those strategies. I felt lost for so long and considered pulling the plug on my dream of having my own coaching practice. I now have clients, momentum, faith, and certainty that I can do this. I firmly believe she is the missing link for coaches who passionately want their own lucrative coaching business but are having a hard time building a client base. She’s a miracle worker!
I can't thank you enough for sharing your magic through your Client Enrollment Training. It works!
Seriously, I can't thank you enough for sharing your magic through your Client Enrollment Training. It works!
I practiced it with a prospective client the next day and she signed on with a 10 on the commitment scale. We had an awesome breakthrough session and I felt so at ease using your model. It helped me maintain my focus on the client, stay authentic and reach a level of depth and connection with out the nervousness that usually comes for me when I'm trying to "sell" my coaching.
True Nature Coaching
Hiring Tara is, without a doubt, the best decision I've made since I opened my business
Hiring Tara Butler Floch as my business coach is, without a doubt, the best decision I have made since opening my Pilates/Yoga Studio. I worked with Tara for 10 months and came to rely on her advice as an invaluable part of my business. Her ability to think outside the box raised my level of thinking about issues every time we talked.
Tara helped me to discover new well thought out practices and adopt the best approaches for my business. The best testament to her great coaching was evident when issues came up that required her input. Her voice was inside my head engaging me with the questions to ask, how to approach the issue, and what outcome I desired. Her coaching style relies heavily on asking questions to help me work through the issue -- she listens exceptionally well, and encourages me to talk through the challenges we all face but are afraid to discuss. She then provides her perspective and has a keen ability to cut through the noise and to hone in on the real issues at hand.
I had no real knowledge of how business coaching worked but knew I needed someone to help guide and focus my business. I would recommend Tara to any business owner, if you wish to increase your business income in a timely fashion.
Although Tara has many clients, she always takes the time to stay current and focused on the specifics of what is happening in my life and business. She not only gave me specific strategies for changing old habits, but also constructively challenged my preconceptions. I am able to see the value and productiveness of new approaches to management, client relations and marketing. It also resulted in a 29% increase in business revenue! I have better work-life boundaries after working with her, and enjoy my work much more. She is terrific! I highly recommend her.
Sana Vita Studio
I now have a full practice of Ideal Clients!
Before working with Tara I really struggled with identifying my ideal client and focusing on a specific niche… In working with her, I discovered the niche I want to focus on and how best to bring products and services to that niche… After working with her my coaching practice has increased by 30% and most importantly it has filled with “Ideal clients”. I am also more focused on what I offer and I am continuing to be creative with marketable coaching programs. I didn’t have that before.
Tara is an excellent mentor and coach and her advise has helped me have a full coaching practice and continue to increase my rates through better client services and focused offerings.
All of a sudden it feels like I am magically attracting my ideal clients
I can honestly say that I would still be lost if I had not begun working with Tara. She has been the perfect mix of coach and consultant to extract what I wanted and provide me proven techniques to move toward my niche. I had been resistant to narrowing for many reasons – afraid of turning away business, I am drawn to many different things, I didn’t know how to figure it out – to name a few. The materials Tara has created to guide solopreneurs broke me past my own blocks, and her nurturing guidance has pushed me through my fears toward the practice I have now.
Every time I stall she helps me look at it in a kind way, then helps me find the right activities to take the next step. All of a sudden it feels like I am magically attracting my ideal clients. I am indebted to Tara’s wisdom, her fierce belief in me (even when I didn’t believe in myself) and her nurturing approach to helping me on my journey."
I went from 2 clients to a full coaching practice in 10 months!
I started working with Tara, when I started my own coaching company after moving to Calgary where I knew no one. I had 2 clients back home, but had to start everything from scratch in Calgary.
10 months later, I have a business full of clients and I am preparing to take my company online and expand outside the city I live in. Tara has been the biggest support and mentor in guiding me through the processes of starting a company and finding clients.
I especially appreciate that she has been down this path herself and tried and tested all kinds of methods to find the ones that really work. Tara’s guidance and encouragement have gotten me through the days where I have doubts about my business and myself. I have a more balanced life thanks to the help from Tara in getting my priorities in order and structure around achieving my goals."

Tara is an amazing coach and wonderful support
"Tara is an amazing coach and a wonderful support in my life. Her blend of intuition, practical knowledge, compassion, and creative thinking is a potent and inspiring combination.

Intuitive Coach, Vanessa Metcalf Coaching
Tara helped me to continue to move forward.. even in the most challenging times.
“Over the past year, Tara has been my biggest advocate, both business and personal. She continually surprised me with her depth of knowledge and broad range of business expertise and her ability to convey this in a way that helped me continue to move forward...even in the most challenging times. Not only was I able to clearly "re-define" my ideal clientele and update our teams suite of marketing pieces...I was able to identify an opportunity to become the Founding Director of a new firm that will perfectly support our existing Wealth Management practice going forward.”
Concrete steps were created that helped me find my center
"As a new entrepreneur, I needed help trying to find my footing in the mass of confusion that the first year of a big new venture can bring. Tara and I got right to the heart of where I could make changes to move my business forward quickly. Concrete steps were created that helped me find my center again. Now, with those are in place, I now feel more clear and ready for the next move!"
