"I now have room to breathe! I really didn’t think I could live like this!"

Cook, Dawn


Travel Industry / Non-Profit

I made the decision to join Breakthrough because I knew I couldn’t go on the same trajectory. I was missing genuine presence - I felt like I was going through the motions and only seeing my daughters in the rearview mirror - I was just driving them around rather than enjoying the time together.

After enrolling in Breakthrough, I realized I can be both a mom AND an employee AND can get the life I want, not just the job I want; and, I'm passing on these life lessons to my 2 beautiful daughters.

I have truly benefited from learning to say 'no' and discovering my legacy with my non-profit. I have became a better friend, as I now hear my friends differently - I am listening better. I have learned to respect time more the importance of foundational balance practices. I feel much closer to my husband and my daughters now.

I would recommend the program if you feel like something is missing or feel like you’re in a hamster wheel. Just do it!

"I have increased confidence and now see myself in a whole new light. I'm just plain happy!"


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 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…

Cherylanne, I wanted to thank you again for your time last week. That hour was truly transformative for me and I’m grateful!

I just want to say how impressed I continue to be with you and all that you do - and how beautifully you tell the truth to inspire us! Thank you for sharing your insights and celebrating the real lives that we all lead, and helping motivate and encourage us in the process. Wishing you continued success and happiness!

~ Allison O.

I have to say I have had the BEST week I can remember in a long time! I've accomplished a ton, felt so much more present with friends and family, and truly enjoyed play/rest time that I was able to set aside. I seem to be shedding that ever-present cloud that was lingering above me filled with all the things I should be doing but don't know how I'll ever do. I proved to myself that I could make some real changes.

~ Sue K. after her second week in coaching

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.

Define Purpose and Take Action to Fulfill It

Success Stories from Our Clients Seeking Purpose...

Hear from our clients in their own words...

"I'm no longer 'wishing upon a star.' I have an attainable plan and know what it will take to get there."

Danielle Bell professional photo


Finance IT

I joined Breakthrough to get more out of my career and to find my true purpose. I was in a role with good visibility, but I kept questioning 'what's next?' I kept telling myself I should be happy with how far I've come and with where I am, but I just didn't feel like my current position was tapping into my life's passion.

I was also looking to strengthen and prioritize relationships in my personal life - I wanted to make sure I was carving out enough time to invest in those I truly care about. The legacy statement work helped me to deepen and develop more genuine connections.

Cherylanne's story resonated with me. She 'got my weird' right away and it was comforting to know that I’d be working with someone who understood me - my spirit. I didn’t feel like I was talking to a stranger, and she truly wanted to help me get there.

In working with Cherylanne, I have developed a plan that is attainable and not just a 'wish upon a star.' I know where I want my life to go, and I know what it will take to get there. For instance, I told Cherylanne I wanted to go to Africa and learn Swahili - I have since booked the trip and am being more intentional in making it happen.

"I now have a more rewarding, purpose-driven set of work and a better quality of life."


Client Success Director, The Brilliant Balance Co.

I was successful in my job. I was doing well, I was earning a great income. I was progressing in the company...but I felt like a ball in a pinball machine. I was constantly running from one meeting or one appointment to the other...when I came home I was really spent, and as much as I wanted to dedicate my focus and attention to my children and my husband, I was tired and still had things running through my head from the day.

I hated that I wasn't able to give my family the quality time I wanted. And finally there was just this moment where I realized that, while I'm working really hard and I'm successful, I'm not feeling like I'm getting the most out of life. And I have these ongoing, lingering questions as to whether or not I'm doing the right thing.

Through the Brilliant Balance Breakthrough program, I was able to explore and articulate my purpose, and found that it did not match my current job. I started looking for other career opportunities that better matched this purpose and, quite frankly, now that I've made that change, I feel like I have a more rewarding set of work and better quality of life.

I would absolutely say my life is much better since going through the Breakthrough program. I needed a lot of support and coaching and encouragement to build my confidence to make such a big career change. It was through the coaching, the mindset work and the community of women in the Breakthrough program that really helped give me the courage to do it.

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…

I found Brilliant Balance during a time of transition from corporate life to becoming an independent consultant with Rodan and Fields.

I knew I had to find something different, but did not know where to start.…

Step Change Business Growth without Breaking Your Life

Success Stories from Our Entrepreneurial Clients...

Hear from our clients in their own words...

"I would absolutely say my life is much better since going through Breakthrough."

Robinson, Jessi


I was struggling to bid five-figure jobs - it was very uncomfortable for me. After working with Cherylanne, I'm securing multiple five-figure projects, even six-figure projects. I'm forecasting beyond a year, and it's so much less stressful.

I didn't realize how much my mindset and my own personal limiting beliefs were getting in my way. Cherylanne helped me put that scarcity mindset aside.

There are not enough words to describe how much she has helped me. The support from Cherylanne has been amazing.

"Worth every penny... my business growth has paid for my coaching investment tenfold."


When I started working with Cherylanne, I had a business idea but was completely unsure of how to start. I was unhappy with my job, and deep in the throes of infertility. I knew something in my life had to change. Through Cherylanne’s coaching, I was able to get focused, dive in, and create my company. I landed four clients within a couple months using a targeted cold email strategy. Even more importantly, Cherylanne worked with me to shift my mindset around infertility, and I got pregnant!

In just nine months, I had secured enough clients to quit my full-time job and self-fund a paid maternity leave. Within two years of quitting my job, I had nearly quadrupled my old salary. The growth of my business was supported and fueled in large part by my participation in Boardroom with Cherylanne and other high achieving entrepreneurs.

Through it all, Cherylanne helped me maintain a strong balance between work and family, so I can spend significant quality time with my daughter every single day while maintaining my business growth.
