Hi – I’m Gwen Bortner, and I’m a speaker, facilitator, and coach/consultant. My goal is to help small business owners build momentum in their businesses so they can make significant progress toward their bigger goals. I do this by providing individual and group/team consulting sessions, workshops, lectures, and digital products.
I believe in abundance — professionally and personally. As such, I always strive to share as much knowledge and experience as I possess.

Marketing has always been one of my weaker areas when it comes to running a business; it has just never come easily to me to figure out how to sell what I make to the right people. Recently I came to the realization that maybe that’s because I was trying to make my business fit […]
