My signature coaching program has delivered life-changing results for hundreds of women across the country. But don't take my word for it.
On this page I've collected some of my clients' stories through video interviews, emails, and their Facebook posts.
Have a look around and then ask yourself if you are going to be our next success story!
Thank you. You are helping me bring my life to an entirely new level! Thank you for doing what you are meant to do. You made a huge difference for me and I am certain so many others.
Things here are moving at the speed of light... I accepted a job offer closer to family today and my husband has an interview for a huge promotion and pay raise job on Monday in the same area!

I feel like a weight has been lifted. It is the most beautiful experience I've had, next to having children and being married. I'm very grateful.
Anything that is worth having is worth investing in. I'm so grateful for the program. I am blessed to have been surrounded by these women.
The investment was worth every penny... my business growth has paid for my coaching investment tenfold.
I would recommend it highly. It's probably the best investment that you can make in yourself.
I feel so much more calm and relaxed after going through the Life Design Boot Camp program - I'm learning to live in the moment!
I had been trying to figure out how to balance my work and personal life for over a year. I was so relieved and at peace when I enrolled.
Something was not right... I was not doing what I loved and was finding it hard to live healthy and manage family and work, and I was tired of trying to figure out how to fix it on my own. I knew I owed it to my family and myself to do this.

My husband and I have gotten very clear on our financial goals, and we've reclaimed our day-to-day time with each other and our family with purpose...
She has helped me to build my confidence and realize my worth at work, which has enabled me to negotiate for more compensation AND more flexibility.
We've been in our new dream home for about 3 mos. now, and I've been in my new job for about 7 mos. Big changes!

When I first started working with Cherylanne, I was at a turning point in my life, having just left my full time job to pursue my own venture. Starting my own blog.
I was dedicating long hours and travel to work at the expense of my family. Even when I was home, I wasn’t really there. My mind was on work and everything I needed to get done the next day. Meanwhile, my kids need me now more than ever as they get older. All the logistics and planning of others running my household and picking up my kids was driving me crazy.
I immediately jumped on the "Cherylanne" bandwagon and reached out to her. I had just left my job, my career, my identity if you will. I was a blank canvas and I needed some guidance in this new stage of my life.
I was a bit nervous and apprehensive about working with Cherylanne it at first. I wasn’t sure if I was cut out to work with a coach. Most of my life I had figured things out on my own. I wasn’t used to working alongside someone who didn’t know me or know what I was made out of, where I came from. How could she really help me? But once I decided to go for it, I knew that the only way this would be a successful experience for us was if I gave 100% of me and worked really hard on all the assignments.
I loved working with Cherylanne. I think the whole experience delivered a lot more than I expected. She had a way of looking at my entire life as it relates to achieving my goals. She helped me shed a new light into different situations I was encountering. I believe I came out a lot stronger in the end. More confident in my abilities because I understood where I was coming from.
Everything she asked us to do, all the exercises that dove deep into who we are, what our values are, what we believe in, what are barriers are, what are ideals are, what are dreams are and so on are so tied with everything that we do now. It all contributes to how we move forward in life. My biggest breakthrough was learning so much about myself, just bringing it all to the table really helped inform why I am the way I am, why I behave a certain way. She gave me the tools to overcome obstacles and continue moving forward.
Throughout the coaching process I experienced increased confidence and now see myself in a whole new light, and I'm just plain happy! I’m able to manage my life better and with all of that comes peace of mind. Not having enough time to do what I want to do has always been a big hurdle for me, but breaking out all the hours of the day and doing the Time Study helped me overcome this.
I was able to implement my Rocking Over 40 website and social media outlets. I'm more organized and am following through. All the methods and techniques she taught me really helped me tremendously. I stand up to my fears with more courage to face them, and I have increased confidence in myself and my capabilities.
If I hadn’t decided to work with Cherylanne, I’d probably still be working on launching my site and stuck in a rut.
I already referred one of my good friends to Cherylanne and she is working with her. I told her that having a life coach like Cherylanne really helped get my life in order. I do think that you need to be ready for it, you need to be open-minded, you need to put in the time and the effort to achieving your goals, otherwise it will not help you.
I know that I have probably mentioned this in the past, but I want to thank you again for believing in my vision and pushing me toward it. I have never felt like I am in the center of God's will more than what I have in this season.
I am looking forward to all of the wonderful things that He will do. I sincerely appreciate you.
I wanted to thank you again for your time last week. That hour was truly transformative for me and I'm grateful! In this past week, I've devoured your videos on time management and getting a handle on your calendar. It has made a big difference for me. Things are getting done and I'm not feeling overwhelmed. Most importantly, though, you said something to me in our conversation that resonated profoundly with me. You mentioned that I was focused on worse-case scenarios rather than best. That one little statement was a game changer for me to shift the lens through which I have viewed my future. I'm feeling this awareness in my thinking and it's powerful. I hope you don't mind that your voice has become my internal guide that is virtually keeping me on track. I know how much I am going to benefit when I can hear it for real (and with your actual words, not my brain translating what it wishes/ thinks it should hear).
I have already had some massive changes to my life because of the coaching so far that I wanted to outline to you...
I am now getting 7+ hours of sleep per night vs. old way of 5-6. Massive change with energy.
I have now for the last 4 weeks utilized Evernote as well as daily and weekly time blocking for key personal and work tasks and projects.
I have done the weekly check-in and made adjustments to the following week’s calendar and moved around appointments PROACTIVELY – wow!
I have found tasks that can be bundled together (weekly outfit planning, snack planning for my daughter, swim lessons with my pool workouts) and have blocked time to get them done.
I found tasks that can be made more efficient and DONE that – weekly online ordering and grocery pickup – HUGE time saver.
I have dreamt of the day we have a maid come clean our home and do the time consuming in-depth cleaning for the last 16 years – TODAY is that day. This was a shift due to prioritization of cleaning vs. family time….
We have had 4 family dinners per week free from electronics with PLANNED meals that are ready generally at a good time (used to be 2-3 times per week).
I look forward to the next 6 weeks, but wanted to send you an update!
What an impactful conversation!
Our chat today was the perfect Valentine's gift to myself. My head and heart feel so encouraged. You are a great listener and seem to understand the importance of living an intentional life.
Thank you for the time and energy you stand ready to invest in me and my happiness. I feel inspired already --- You define meaningful work!
Looking forward to Tuesday,
I have been really trying to be focused and intentional to make sure the changes actually stick and am giving myself the latitude to take extra time if needed to make sure I am following through on foundational practices. This is completely new for me as I like to be the type “A – done quickly – extra credit” person, but I know that time spent investing in building this foundation will have the best payoff vs. doing it quickly!
Thank YOU so much for today! You gave me a new found sense of hope. I walked away from our meeting today feeling like everything is possible after all, and that was a fantastic feeling. I'm excited at the thought of working with you and going through your program. I definitely feel like it will be a game changer for me.
I have wrestled with the bad habit of setting massive unattainable, unrealistic goals and have been really trying to focus on the basics first, then layer on with my priorities. We will talk more about this in our 1:1, however, this has been the largest transformation of all and the other processes have created space and been a conduit to allow this to happen.
I have had four weeks now of managing my work inbox and projects effectively – longest this has ever happened! I broke out email “ZONES” during the day where I sprint and file, respond, or put on task list with a scheduled date and time.
I have had more time to get projects turned in a day early vs. the last hour the day it is due.
I am more prepared for meetings because my process allows for running tasks lists by party and project type.
I have notified people if/when tasks can be done and scheduled them in the future as appropriate.
I have worked on this practice with my team and have supported more progress vs. stress because of my being proactive and planful with all of our projects.
I also have looked ahead and moved meetings/planned projects based on how busy days or weeks are so there is space to be realistic with the tasks for the day and respond if any urgent issues come up.
ZONES: This has been massively transformational as if have tried to cram things I may have missed into later parts of the day if I fall behind.
I am now allocating time to do things. If I don’t get it done at that time, it either doesn’t get done (i.e. if I sleep in vs. do my workout) or I move it to that zone tomorrow. This either motivates me to get it done, or decide to move it to the next day and be at peace with that decision.
I will talk with you on the call today!
My experience using Cherylanne as a coach was a great gift to myself.
Such an amazing group of inspiring women!
Here's what husband's are saying...

I’m working on Week 10. I’ve finished the videos and was addressing the purpose prompts. Rather than let myself get anxious about it, I went into it with a sort of mellow and open mind. I don’t remember which one, but I just ran smack-dab into something Cherylanne said in one of the videos. I…
Thanks for all your support and your firm commitment to moving forward. You have inspired me to be the person I always felt was possible, but didn’t have the support and tools to do myself. I look forward to our phone call Tuesday morning, and am finishing up with my life map and project plan!
When I first came to the program, I was moving toward becoming a nurse. It’s what I wanted to do my whole life. It had to be my dream. It had to be my purpose. So I decided to go on for my RN program. Through the Brilliant Balance program and a lot of work,…
I found Brilliant Balance during a time of transition from corporate life to becoming an independent consultant with Rodan and Fields. I had been struggling with being fully present to re-engage back into corporate life after taking a much-needed sabbatical. I knew I had to find something different, but did not know where to start.…

Through my interactions with Cherylanne, through reading her blog, through working with her on a joint project, and through a one-on-one call we had, I have continually been inspired and motivated to go to the next level with my work and my dreams. Cherylanne encouraged me to take a step that frightened me. Ultimately, I…
The members of the newly formed Kao Network of Women had expressed a strong interest in the subject of mentoring. So we were excited to have Cherylanne address the topic in her presentation “Mentorship for the Modern Workplace.” Cherylanne was spot on! She provided insight on why each of us needs multiple mentors—personally and professionally–…
Cherylanne Skolnicki, thank you. As a “too-busy” lady, exhausted by trying to keep my floundering ducks “looking good” (in an alleged row), your talk was “beyond” exactly what I needed to hear that day. You are inspirational — the confidence, vulnerability, and honesty of your talk made the room shine. I hope to find myself along…
