PRAISE FROM CLIENTS

Janet’s contributions to my work have been invaluable. Her guidance both expanded my thinking and grounded it in practical implementation. She helped me express, package, and position my work for the greatest possible success.

DAVID ALLEN

author of "Getting Things Done" (over 2 million copies sold)

With passion and heart, Janet took my thoughts and ideas and was somehow able to get them down on these pages. Through her skill, patience, and incredible coaching and perseverance, this project got done.

HOWARD BEHAR

former president Starbucks, author of "It’s Not About the Coffee" (with Janet Goldstein)

Every conversation with Janet gives me new ideas, but one in particular changed my life. I had weathered a long period of failure in my writing when Janet asked me one simple, brilliant question. The result? Immediate clarity! I started a book that day and it’s the best I’ve ever written. She is a powerful, wonderful partner in your professional writing life!

JENNIFER LOUDEN

best-selling author of "The Woman’s Comfort Book" and "Why Bother: Discover the Desire for What’s Next"

Janet discovered, named, and published The Dance of Anger. Without her it never would have happened.

HARRIET LERNER

author of "The Dance of Anger" (over 3 million copies sold)

The impact of my work with Janet unfolded over a number of months, but ultimately I discovered she was right about everything (which is not easy for me to say). Janet gave me a crash publishing tutorial and astute high-level advice in the scope I needed.

MICHAEL BUNGAY STANIER

founder of Box of Crayons and author of "Do More Great Work" and "The Coaching Habit"

I owe a huge debt to my brilliant editorial consultant Janet Goldstein whose smarts and insights fit so perfectly.

JULIET FUNT

Janet provides motivation and a wealth of insights to inspire great ideas, and she drills down to help make them bulletproof.
