“Genny instantly caught my attention with her passion for helping others find their way and her down-to-earth personality! I reached out to her, as I wanted to dive deeper into the next chapter of my career. Going through her full 6-week personal branding program gave me a clearer picture of what I truly didn’t want and inspired me to start pursuing my true passions. Interestingly enough, through her program and amazing guidance, I discovered that the passions I once held had shifted, and with Genny’s help, she got me aligned! I gained valuable tools to further enhance my own personal branding in my career and personal life that I was instantly able to implement.

Genny truly is a bright light in this world and always made me feel comfortable to share my thoughts in a safe space to where I could make the progress needed. She even connected me with a few HR professionals to further help me in my new journey. I highly recommend Genny and her personal branding program to anyone no matter where you’re at in your career or life journey!”

“I had the opportunity to listen to Genny Heikka at a corporate speaker series and was immediately drawn to her passion for helping women.  After a chat, and her going out of her way to accommodate my schedule outside her usual work hours, I signed up for the Personal Branding Coaching Program.

Genny genuinely cares about empowering and helping women and isn’t in this for mere business. She helped me explore my strengths and values, and to open my mind to career options in leadership, which I had never even considered or seen myself worthy of before. She walked me through the process of self exploration resulting in gaining clarity for future steps and confidence. I had a great time working with her and getting to know her, and above all myself, over the four sessions. She is focused, understanding, motivating and kind.  I loved her passion and energy.

The process was very valuable to me at my mid-career in the tech industry and I believe it can help anyone at any stage of their life/career.”

“Genny’s service was invaluable to me as a young millennial professional hoping to find clarity in a new chapter of life. I began working with Genny eight months into a new career I was struggling to embrace. Her guidance was an essential piece in my discovery of personal and unique compass points to use when making decisions in life, career, and creative projects. Her process facilitates self-discovery and growth-minded reflection, along with the exploration of values and passion. No matter where you are in life, at the beginning of a career and wondering where to go or decades in and needing to create a new path, the support and clarity provided through Genny and her coaching process will prove to be an indispensable resource.”

“Genny is absolutely amazing to work with! She is extremely helpful, relatable, kind and understanding. When I began working with Genny, I was not confident in who I was or where my life journey would take me. She helped me immensely with identifying my strengths, values, and overall confidence in who I am. This guidance really helped me look at my life differently and really embrace who I am rather than comparing myself to everyone around me. Genny and her coaching services are a valuable resource no matter the stage in life you are at. Thank you Genny for your enthusiasm for life and wanting to help those around you.”

“A recent partnership with Genny resulted in a very successful Women’s Skill Builders Series for more than 800 participants over the course of three weeks. The series covered topics of mentors, sponsors, and personal branding and were highly sought-after by employees. Genny brought her expertise and heart-warming anecdotes which left our audiences with a sense of empowerment to own their careers. She’s incredibly easy to engage for planning and execution, she keeps it real, and she’s able to draw people in and establish a connection very quickly. She also met us where we needed her most – on video conference – which enabled us to scale to hundreds of dispersed employees and maintain a high level of engagement through a virtual format. ‘The sessions were truly Do Not Disturb Worthy!’ one of our participants commented – I couldn’t agree more! Partnering with Genny is like having the support of hundreds of women behind you, rooting for your success! Her wealth of experience, coupled with her easy-going personality, makes her a great coach. Thanks for an awesome series, Genny!”

“As a seasoned professional, I was struggling with my purpose and passion. Genny guided me through an exploration of my values and passion. It was easy to engage with Genny. She has a talent of drawing out experiences that provide a foundation for the Personal Brand Toolbox. The toolbox is an excellent product that identifies values, passions, strengths, natural abilities, skills, shaping experiences which shape your personal mission statement and personal brand statement. The Personal Brand Toolbox provided a path to share my talents and an opportunity to highlight experiences that have shaped who I am professionally!”

“I had the privilege of working on personal branding with Genny and it has been transformational for me.  I started working with Genny during a time where I realized I had lost my way.  I wholeheartedly devoted myself to family and raising kids, which has been rewarding in many ways—I just forgot about me during that season, unintentionally.  Years later, I looked up and asked myself questions like “Now what?” and “Who the heck am I?”  Genny helped pull out the core values and strengths that make me who I am and make me feel alive.  She has been an insightful guide who has helped reconnect me with my passions so I can live with purpose and fulfillment as Jackie.  I feel excited about the future and less scared.  I am walking away with tools to help me along the way of this new adventure.  Genny is very gifted at what she does. Not only is she brilliant, she genuinely cares about each individual and loves what she does.  Just talk to her for 2 minutes, you’ll fall in love with her and feel inspired.”

“Working with Genny was one of the most empowering steps I’ve taken. I was at a crossroads in my career as well as personal life, and decided I needed to make a change. I did some research on life coaches and career counselors, and found Her Team Success. I was immediately drawn to the fact that it focuses on giving women a sense of power and control into their own hands, and utilizes strategies and tools specific to each woman. During my time working with Genny I actually landed my dream job, and I finally had the confidence to accept it and make a huge move. I cannot recommend Her Team Success enough. The experience changed my career, and my entire life. Thank you Genny!”
