Mary Ellen was instrumental in helping me to transition into a new career after I suffered a traumatic brain injury in 2015. Her coaching and counsel helped me to make the jump to entrepreneurship after working in the wind power business for over a decade. She's a great listener who challenged me to take stock of my strengths, recognize my weaknesses - and get back out there! Thank you Mary Ellen for your compassion, insights and encouragement” “ - Co Founder, COO


"Going in to my first session with the team at BLT, I walked in the door a semi-broken, frustrated man. After about 15 minutes, I realized the quality of people I was in the room with. Through their active listening, positive/constructive feedback and insight, I walked out of the building with my head held high, back on track, ready to tackle my ambitions. I walked in the door a 2 out of 5 on the happiness scale. After a memorable 60 minutes, I walked out the door a 4 out of 5. I highly recommend this team of wonderful people."  --President, Founder, Trainer
