Testimonials

Teresa is a master at helping creative people identify their best ideas, hone them, and then execute them in practical, doable steps. If you're a writer, entrepreneur, team leader, or simply got one of those lightning-bolt inspirations out of the blue, Teresa can show you how to turn that idea into action.

--Laura Backes, publisher of Children's Book Insider: The Newsletter for Children's Writers and the CBI Clubhouse website

Teresa coaches by coming alongside you, listening well, and providing a fresh perspective. Her guidance is both aspirational and concrete, able to turn big dreams into solid first steps. With OpenStage Theatre, she tailored her approach to our non-profit arts organization, helping us find creative ways to accomplish our goals with limited resources.

-- Elizabeth Zurn, Managing Director, OpenStage Theatre

I've seen Teresa work not only with individuals, but small business owners as well. Her ability to isolate key points in discussions burdened with generalities, and then pull those details to the forefront of the group discussion, proves she has what it takes to move ideas into action...and success. Pragmatic, straightforward and highly creative, Teresa's thought process guides the clients through the process, instead of just dumping a bunch of recommendations onto their laps. If your looking for a bridge from idea-to-action, this is the place to start."

"It takes a certain kind of brain to look at an idea--any idea, from any field or industry--and immediately be able to break it down into actionable pieces. Teresa Funke has that kind of brain. I've seen it in action: she can assess the big picture, boil it down to its myriad parts, identify the trouble spots, and best of all--she can communicate just how to act on that idea. She's my favorite go-to brainstormer!"

--Trai Cartwright, president of Craftwrite
