work with me

I work with individuals and businesses to help them differentiate themselves from their competition, discover and leverage new opportunities, and navigate the changes that comes with it.  How can I help you and your company reach your objectives quickly with less stress and frustration?

Business Coaching

Are you a small business owner, solopreneur, a professional service provider needing a smarter sales and marketing strategy? A targeted approach gets faster results.

Customized Training

Goals, challenges, and opportunities don’t come in a one-size fits all package. It’s time to get results that are as unique as the challenges you are facing in your business.

Conference Speaking

Tired of the hearing the same topic in a slightly different way? Then it’s time for keynotes and breakout sessions that provide tactics, motivate and inspire you to take action.

After 23 years of non-productive networking, I was fortunate to meet Joyce at what I had determined to be my last networking event. She asked what results I was getting from my efforts. I shared with her that for over two decades, I had provided quality referrals to many and had received very little in return. She said, “I can help you fix the problem and turn your networking into a valuable asset capable of growing your business exponentially.” The fee I paid for her consulting is absolutely the best business development investment I have ever made. My only regret is I didn’t meet her 20 years ago. It is without reservation that I recommend her services to you. Do you and your business a favor…retain her.

“Joyce Layman outlines the simple steps you can take to propel yourself to success. Being uncertain about the future and, more importantly, your ability to handle the approaching uncertainties and obstacles is normal. Convincing yourself to take the Leap is not…but it can and should be. Thanks, Joyce for showing us the way!” ​
– Harry Campbell, CEO Durrie Vision, and author of Get-Real Leadership

Just Another Leap

Everything that you are familiar with today was once unfamiliar territory. There was a time where you didn’t know how to walk, talk or read. But you do all of those things effortlessly now. If you took a similar approach to everything else you learn in life, you’d be amazed at how quickly you progress. It starts by learning to leap. Speaking at TEDx allowed me to share my ‘there to here’ story in 16 minutes.  You’ll see there’s a perfectly timed technical glitch about 2:45.

You don’t need a net to leap – you just need to leap and it starts with a performance mindset.
