~ Mary Foley, Bodacious! Ventures LLC

“…at the beginning of this year I hired Bunny with A Better Place Consulting as my business coach because I felt an instant connection and also because I naively thought she had all the magic answers for me and my business{es}. She saw the real me and helped me uncover her. She’s the catalyst behind my journey from human doing to human being. Turns out, I didn’t need to be fixed. No one does. I have all the answers for me and my business if I simply #bestillandknow. And, I got an amazingly loyal friend out of the deal.”

 

caring touch

“I first jumped onboard Bunny’s insightful “Death of a Salesman” webinar, which led me to her twelve week Mastermind call with other likeminded small business owners. Our group was stretched and strengthened by our SMART goal accountability and resource sharing. Subsequently, I was drawn to Bunny’s expertise as a business coach. She is very passionate about breaking down the hurdles that have been standing in my way. With her encouragement, I am pushing through thought patterns that no longer serve me. She is speeding up my learning curve so my business and my world will be A Better Place!”

“Bunny Young has helped me refocus my efforts and concentrate on the positive, to see the results of my efforts and translate that into future short-term goals. The group has provided a fresh perspective and given me encouragement where before I had only dim expectations. We have seen an increase in business since engaging A Better Place Consulting. I chose to work with Bunny because I knew her to have a similar altruistic outlook on life as I do. Our efforts are not just about making a better business, but a better community and a better world. For me, I would tell others that my experience working with Bunny has been inspiring.”

~ Thomas M.Leahy III, OptimumEd

“Thank you! As a sole proprietor, I found myself getting overwhelmed at time by the abundant number of “hats” to wear for each area of the business. My tasks always seem to be the launching pad to another task ~ without finishing the first. Bunny’s respectful nudging through years of my own conditioning helped me to see things in a more organized and palatable way. Thank you Bunny for the compassion and passion you delivered in your own uniquely wonderful style!!”

The Meaning of the Starfish

This story has been around for ages but I still find such inspiration from the young boy’s dedication and conviction to create a better place and a better opportunity for as many individuals as he could impact. It resonated so strongly that I decided to use it aas the foundation that I have built my logo, my brand, and my business around. Please enjoy, and continue to strive to make a difference to “One” each and every day! 

– Bunny

Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach every morning before he began his work. Early one morning, he was walking along the shore after a big storm had passed and found the vast beach littered with starfish as far as the eye could see, stretching in both directions. 

Off in the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching.  As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the man could see that he was occasionally bending down to pick up an object and throw it into the sea.  The boy came closer still and the man called out, “Good morning!  May I ask what it is that you are doing?”

The young boy paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach and they can’t return to the sea by themselves,” the youth replied. “When the sun gets high, they will die, unless I throw them back into the water.”

The old man replied, “But there must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I’m afraid you won’t really be able to make much of a difference.”

The boy bent down, picked up yet another starfish and threw it as far as he could into the ocean. Then he turned, smiled and said,

“It made a difference to that one!”
