Like so many of you out there, when I heard about the Big Fish Nation program with Lorin Beller & Co., I said, “I’m going to sign up for that….someday…..when I’m not so busy….when I have more money……when my business is more successful.” But I realized it was exactly because I didn’t have the time, money, or smoothly running business that I needed this course.
It would have taken me years to get to where I am today if I had not participated in the Big Fish Nation program. This isn’t just a tactical course on business strategy (though that is part of the program); it’s a much broader and, in my opinion, more effective way to look at your business and your life as a whole.
The most important lesson I took away from the program is that in order to change my business, I needed to change myself. The main thing standing in my way was me, and once I got myself sorted out, the business started flowing. The whole year was filled with unexpected lessons like this one.
The coaching part of the program was so important! Coaching with Nancy Duncan was life changing. She is that wonderful and rare Ying and Yang of being empathetic, insightful, and encouraging, while also challenging, calling you on your BS and holding you fully accountable. Nancy “brought it” every single call. She was there, present and engaged. She was a tremendous resource to me helping me better understand and improve not only my business but myself.
The second most important lesson I took away from the program is “When you pray, move your feet.” (an African proverb Lorin cites often). So many of us in business struggle with when to take action and when to rest in faith; when to follow the path we’re on, and when to change direction. So if you feel like you’re stuck, if you feel like you’re at a crossroad, if you know your business could be doing better but you just can’t put your finger on what’s holding you back, this is your program.
Don’t wait til someday, sign up for a coaching program with Lorin Beller & Co NOW! It’s the best gift you’ll ever give to yourself and your business.

I made my revenue goals for the year! My goal since I began my company was to make more money than I made at my last job (which I lost 2 years ago) and I’m about $100 over the top of that. Very exciting! I got my first 5-figure project last month, and that’s what put me over the top, thanks to the Big Fish Goal Wheel!

Working with Lorin, Nancy and the Big Fish group has been fabulous. They helped me to redefine my business, design new products and to stopdoing the things that weren’t adding to my bottom line. My revenue has increased over 30 percent and I am having more fun than ever.

As female business owners we’re so often giving the advice, teaching and supporting our clients. I was giving all of my best work away (and not charging enough!) and spending zero time on my own goals. I was running a marketing company but spending zero time marketing myself.Lorin not only gave me permission to focus on my business, she made it my top responsibility, gave me tools to work though the challenges, and kept me accountable. This is not “cheer you on from the sidelines” coaching, this is “running along beside you keeping you going in the rain” kind of coaching. The impact it’s had on my business (and my life) is priceless.
“When I joined the Big Fish program, I felt like a fish out of water. I was rebounding from the death of both parents, and going back to my marketing and public relations business just wasn’t in the cards. It was time for a change, and I wanted the support of a strong leader and program as I navigated a new path. I decided to take the leap, and here’s what I discovered: The Big Fish waters are overflowing with amazing coaches, resources, learning, support, inspiration, motivation and like-minded, high-achieving women business owners who want more success in business and life.
“Lorin Beller Blake, the Big Tuna, has created an awe-inspiring program that delivers. Her big picture perspective, strong mentoring skills and ability to inspire bold action were just what I needed to reposition my business to one in total alignment with my passions, skills and life experiences. The structure of the Big Fish program ensures clarity and focus. My favorite take-away? Writing my 10-year vision then aligning all of my action around it.”Leslie Hamp www.lesliehamp.com

My business has grown by 110% in just the first six months of the virtual program!
When I joined Big Fish, I was already a seasoned business owner with more than five years of entrepreneurial know-how under my belt. I had done well for myself, but my business wasn’t as successful as I knew it could be. Plus, I had changed my business focus (from HR consulting to my true passion, writing), so joining Big Fish was an opportunity for me to explore a new way of doing (and being in) business.
Here’s the thing about Big Fish… it’s not just a “feel good” coaching program that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It’s also not a program where you’ll be buried in tired sales and marketing tactics that make you feel like a used car salesman. Lorin has crafted a comprehensive business development program that cuts to the core, stripping you of the yuck to reveal the best of who you are and what your business has to offer. And she does all this in a very firm, yet encouraging way.
If you’re a woman business owner who feels like a fish ready for much bigger waters, then you’ll want to dive into Big Fish. You’ll emerge with the confidence, tools and community you need to thrive.
Expedient Trade, LLC
120% increase in Revenues in one year! Taking part in the Big Fish program allowed me to achieve 2 very specific goals for myself and my business. First, Big Fish was very successful at helping me gain a deep sense of inner strength, confidence and desire to lead. This “take-charge” attitude toward life and business has allowed me to lead people in a very different way. I now see the importance of leading people with very “loose reins”. Teach the detail, back away and always leave the “door” open. You will find that people are more willing give you the absolute best of who they are.
Second, I’ve created and live true to my own personal motto: “live a fearless life”!
This motto is a driving factor in helping me make strategic and well focused business decisions without hesitation. I learned many of these strategies in the Big Fish Nation Program. I’m proud to admit, this fearless attitude has allowed me to grow my revenues by over 120% in one year.
Big Fish has been and continues to be an important part of my personal and business growth.

“I was a content ‘Wall St. Corp Exec’ until 9/11/01. After that tragic event I reflected on my life and realized that being content wasn’t good enough; I wanted to be happy, fulfilled, and to live every day with joy. I decided to pursue my childhood dream of owning a boutique. In Oct 2003, I opened the doors of Urban Details and began living fully. I participated in the Big Fish program in 2004 and created a clear vision and plan of what I wanted out of my business and my life. I created a strong brand in Urban Details. The brand signifies creativity, quality, functionality, spirituality, and the essence of good energy.
I wouldn’t be truthful if I didn’t state that 2008/2009 were challenging years especially running a luxury retail boutique. However, several times I referred back to my vision story and my 10yr plan which kept me positively focused on my business and provided me with the tools I needed to endure. In 2009 Urban Details moved to a larger location. Yes, during what’s being called the “Great Recession” I opened a larger location. It was actually the space I dreamt of while on Wall St (literally – hard wood floors, high ceilings, large front window, 3 blocks from the ocean).
During the Big Fish program Lorin had stated to hold on to my goals but not too tight. At the time I didn’t understand what she meant, that statement seemed a bit contradictory. In my 10 yr plan I listed opening a 2nd location in 2009-2010. After opening the new boutique I realized that I was true to my 10yr vision of opening my 2nd location and while I originally thought it would be in addition to my 1st store it was actually bigger, more fabulous and 4 doors away from my original location. So I did accomplish my goal and Lorin was right, I didn’t hold it so tightly and it became what it was supposed to be. Today, I’m living fully, living in gratitude because I created my life and I’m living, loving and grateful every day! “

As a Big Fish I increased my profitability 300% and my business grew 50% – thanks Lorin !
Robin, A big fish who owns her own successful business for years was saying that she wanted ‘more work’ for her business. She had a very successful million dollar business. And she wanted ‘more work’ for her business. After becoming a Big Fish, she realized that she was getting exactly what she asked for, more work. What she really wanted was more money, more ‘profitability!’ During the year of becoming a big fish, she transformed her business, streamlining areas, just becoming more efficient in every aspect. Her business grew 50% and she increased her profitability 300% the year she became a Big Fish! She was more profitable! In June of 2007, she wrote: “I am so very excited to report that the “BIG BID” has finally been awarded. Yes, the one that I started talking about January of 2005. I received the award today! I hope you don’t mind if I brag, but it was our BIG FISH conversations that made it all possible. So, thank you Lorin and Big Fish for your part in giving me the motivation to go after the BIG ONE! The contract term is for 2 years with 3 one year options and is worth an estimated $9,000,000.00 with a cap of $14,000,000.00!!’
In 2009 compared with 2008, we grew the business 555.8% in net income!
2010 first quarter compared to 2009 first quarter, we increased our net income 32.1% and 42.9% better in gross profit margin also last year we served a max of 32 clients at any one time, this year current clients served thus far is 54 and it is only April !
What Kind of Business: Personal Training Studio located near Charlotte, NC
Before Big Fish, I was a business owner that was an expert in fitness but felt I was not the best, most savvy, business woman. I was all about my work. I have a family but I was not spending quality time with them. My work phone was forwarded to my cell phone after work every night and I took the calls each time the phone rang. I was ready for help and direction in my life and business. I was ready for a whole new level of income and lifestyle.
What is different about me as a leader because of being a Big Fish during the past year:
- Core Corporate Values made a huge difference in how we assess and hire staff.
- Developing written protocols and documentation for staff and functioning of the studio allowed the business to function better without me allowing me to now own a more sustainable business.
- The goal wheel has helped me have higher functioning intentions. I go about things in a much more intentional manner making life easier and more fun.
- I feel much more balanced and connected to family not because I am at the studio less really but more because I know my values, know my priorities and have a clear vision of what I am creating both as a mom, wife and a business owner.
- As a leader, I spread my leadership skills out into the community this past year (via NAWBO and a local Business Advocacy Group of which I started). I also have inspired my staff to step into a bigger leadership role at the studio which has them take more responsibility. I am definitely a much more confident leader in every aspect of my life.
- We assessed and added many more profitable services and cut out unprofitable services.
- I have expanded and integrated as a woman, a person, and a business owner. I love the fact that Big Fish Nation is a goal oriented program. I thrive in that setting.
Big Fish Gave Me the tools to Start Multi-Million Dollar Enterprise
Elissa, a Big Fish that owned a very successful marketing and advertising firm Ingenuity Group, is a leader that, says, “I spend a lot of money on things, and with the Big Fish Program, I get more out this than anything else. It is well worth the investment. I am more focused, tactical, communicate better and happier.”
Through the Big Fish program, Elissa realized that she was ready to step into a business that was more near and dear to her heart. She launched a whole new company called: Ballywho Interactive, a Social Media Marketing Firm. Combining her marketing and sales savvy with the sexy social media industry, Elissa transitioned into a whole new company and her company is one of the largest and fastest social media firms in the country.
Utilizing Big Fish tools Elissa is growing a company that is more fun for her as a leader, taught her the skills she needed to hire and retain the best staff while building a unique company culture is one that will be sustainable. She is finding that the tools are spilling over into her personal life as well. And since becoming a Big Fish in 2006, she has grown her one man band to a staff of five and revenue is up to the triple figures.

I expanded my network of friends and allies in business. I have found a new confidence in what I am capable of, a gratitude for the gifts I have and an immense appreciation for the people in my life.

Our business has grown 17% since I became a Big Fish!
Out of all my business expenses, my coaching calls with Lorin Beller Blake of Big Fish Nation are the best use of funds. As a business owner, we all tend to put ourselves last. Clients come first. Employees second and all the minutiae in the daily operations of a business take up the rest of my time. Not to mention that I am pitching reporters all day to get media placements for our clients. Issues constantly arise that can cause conflict and inhibit us from doing the best job possible. Lorin helps to clear the road blocks by solving problems once aired and discussed. She never passes judgment. Instead, she is dedicated to the solution. And she has taught me the most valuable lesson of all: Finding the positive in the negative. THANK YOU LORIN !
I have grown my business four-fold since becoming a Big Fish!
“I have been a Big Fish for years and use the program to keep me on track – focused on my own goals and the Big Fish principles.

“Understanding, compassionate, strong, engaging, powerful, “she gets me”; these and so many more are words I regularly use to describe Lorin. At our first meeting, she empowered me to take the reins of my business and ride it into success! Over the course of the year, I learned new strategies in sales and marketing and have become an expert in the social media industry. In addition, many doors have opened for speaking and training opportunities that I would have never had the confidence to pursue without Lorin’s personal coaching and the Big Fish Nation Program. Since taking the program, I have learned new tools and strategies in Sales and Marketing that have helped me increase revenues 500 % in nine months! The sky’s the limit and I’m so grateful to Lorin and her Big Fish Nation Program for helping me discover the path to achieving my dreams!

Since being a Big Fish I have grown my Business $4 million dollars!
“I started my business 26 years ago. I have guided the business through years of steady yet sustained growth, always stretching our creativity and our capabilities. At its peak, my business was a 10 Million dollar firm. I have a Fortune 500 client base. Although my company has grown and our capabilities have grown, my style of management and leadership had not changed much over the years. Enter Big Fish Nation!!!! And who says you can’t teach – An old dog new tricks?
The Big Fish program encouraged me to fully explore my current style of management and aggressively consider where changes could be made and growth could be accommodated. I have changed from being a den mother to my team to a much more impacting leader. I have cut the apron strings and allowed them more latitude and more freedom to create, explore, and be responsible for their decisions. Though the strength of an empowered team of employees may have been expected, the side effect has been a real surprise as this release from micro managing has provided a personal freedom I thought beyond possibility! During the 2009 recession however, I actually lost my business because of the devastating economy. Personally and professionally it was a struggle. I used the Big Fish principles, I went to work in a way that I had never before. Since then, I have started from scratch and rebuilt. And as I have been in rebuilding mode, I have done some re-branding, some re-inventing and some re-thinking!!! I have grown back to $ 4 million dollars in business so far in 2010. I have also started a second company that will be ready to be announced within the next 6 months. I could not have weathered the personal and professional challenges as well as I have, without the skills I learned in the Big Fish Nation program!
Global Film Maker
New York, NY
Before I was a Big Fish I was on dry land. I wanted to be a filmmaker but I had never made a film. I wanted to be a professional producer/director but I was working at an ad firm. I wasn’t anywhere near the water. Then I DOVE IN. Four years later I’ve produced and directed over 100 live television broadcast programs on meaningful issues related to the health and well-being of the public. And I made my first short documentary film in Africa entitled Water First. The film won 2nd place at the World Water Forum in Mexico City and has since been invited to several festivals and UN conferences all around the world. And now, I’m happy to say, the final version of the film is finished and is being distributed by Bullfrog Films – the largest educational distribution company in the country. I also just got approval from GlobalGiving.org to add our project on their web site so that we can do fundraiser’s for well projects in Africa on a much larger scale. We’ve already provided clean water to over 20,000 people in Malawi by sending funds to Freshwater Project. So not only has my work blossomed, but I definitely feel I’m making a positive difference in the world. Splashing around in the water as a Big Fish has been the best change in my life. I encourage everyone with a dream to DIVE IN!

“I have been running a million dollar company providing audio marketing services for national and international clients for over7 years. The goal for me as well as our team is to take the company to a multi-million dollar company. Have been looking for the right tools for us to do this effectively. I have also been looking for the tools that taught me new ways of managing so that I could truly run the company from the thirty thousand foot view, a way to create more time and not feel behind the eight ball. With Big Fish, it seems like each teleclass is a big AHA for me. I learn something extremely valuable every meeting. The learning is so helpful and relevant that I am often able to take it back to our management or staff meetings to inspire and have my team involved in the bigger vision of the company. They are more confident in me as the leader, they are happier and I realize that in order to be more successful it all starts at the top. The one-on-one coaching has changed my perspectives immensely, I am more empowered and finding ways to empower others. Big Fish has had a big impact on me and my team and my financial goals are bigger than they have ever been!”
Linda is a co-owner of Singers Jewelers, a 3rd generation business. She became a Big Fish in 2004, when she created her vision, there was a one sentence line in the vision that alluded to helping others that were effected by domestic violence. Within 2 years following that writing exercise, Linda found herself launching a not-for-profit organization called Liza’s Legacy. The foundation is receiving huge attention in New York’s Capital Region and beyond! Linda is now participating in the Big Fish program for a second time but this time, making Liza’s Legacy her focus of the program. Her organization has already raised over $100,000 amount of money that is helping others find peace in their world again.
Young Entrepreneurs Alliance
When I first became a Big Fish, I was running a struggling nonprofit. Our costs were very high as we ran one teen business that served 40 teens a year. Big Fish got me to look hard at our program model. Actually, we did more than look. Working with Lorin and my group, we took the model, turned it inside out, contorted it and even ripped it up and put the pieces back together in different orders. The result is that today, YEA is serving 100 teens in 4 different vocational schools, some in the neediest areas of Greater Boston. We have 4 different businesses and 80% of our teens are choosing to go on to college. And, we do all of this at 1/3 less cost. It means our supporters are getting extraordinary value for their investment and our teens are moving out of poverty, out of crime and becoming responsible contributing citizens. Our next step, as even bigger fish, or “masters” is to become financially independent, attracting more donors and creating an income-generating arm. Because of Big Fish, I am swimming with the current rather than upstream. We recently received a $65,000 grant to create ‘stairway to success’, a replication program that will allow us to distribute YEA’s curriculum and methodology to organizations around the world!
Dr. Susan Sikule owns a veterinary clinic and has for over 12 years. She is successful and wanted to create a business that was less reliant on her. She realized that to do that she must have protocols in place and a team of workers who shared her vision. At the same time she has a vision for creating a second practice in a warm climate to give her the luxury of traveling to climates she wants to enjoy when she wants to enjoy them. Big Fish helped her visualize and formulate her vision. She had a realization that for her bigger was not better. A smaller, quaint office that is wildly successful and was client focused is her mission. She is living out her vision as a Big Fish now. Susan has learned how to work well with her team and enjoy both her free time and her more relaxed work time.
Mary Ann LoFrumento, MD, FAAP
I completed the Big Fish program in 2005 and one of the lessons I learned was that sometimes you don’t fully understand or appreciate an experience until some time has passed. Recently I wrote to Lorin and summarized what had happened in my professional and personal life over the past year and a half. When I sat back and looked at the words, I was stunned at how much of what I had written in my Vision statement had in fact occurred. I had actually done many of the things I had only dreamed of including appearing on two national television shows to promote my books and as a parenting expert and producing a 15 part parenting series for cable and web broadcasts by forming a powerful alliance.
I had enjoyed the Big Fish experience and I had loved the group phone sessions with other business owners. It provided me with a group of people in the same boat. I received great feedback from these talented and motivated individuals. It helped me to not feel so alone. And my one on one sessions with Lorin were always a time to talk about the troubling issues in my business, the things that were holding me back. And the reading, even though I didn’t get to every book, was relevant and timely. Having some of the authors on the conference call as a guest was just another dimension and part of what makes the Big Fish Program so different from others.
But by the end of the program, I didn’t feel like I had been successful at all. In fact I was ready to pack it in. Expensive Consultants advised me to shut it down and cut my losses, but I just couldn’t. I was committed to my vision. And I left myself open to opportunities. When they came, I jumped on them and started down a slightly different path.
Reviewing the steps in the Big Fish program now, I realize how much the program had helped me prepare for this moment. Just reading my Values, Passion and Purpose statements again made me feel energized. And the Corporate Values and the Mission Statement were even more relevant now. I realized that I had used the positive and empowering beliefs and avoided the limiting ones. The SWOT system of identifying Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats was still valid and I started to think about the present moment and write those down now.
One of the most important steps to my present success was learning about the power of Strategic Alliances and the positive techniques of Negotiations. This led me to my most profitable partnership and a company I could be in Alignment with. I then thought about all the smaller alliances that had helped me achieve my goals.
Big Fish is a unique approach to consulting. It brings people together to feel supported, it empowers you to be bold and keep open to new opportunities. And it is about balance in your business and in your personal life. It mixes good practical advice with “zen” ideas. One of the strengths of this program is how it forced me to get things down on paper, and to clarify these vague thoughts and ideas that had been in my head. This brought a type of clarity to my business that was not there before.
I don’t know what the future will bring, but I feel ready to forge ahead and take advantage of opportunities that that may surprise me.
Snippet: “Big Fish mixes good practical advice with “zen” ideas. One of the strengths of this program is how it forced me to get things down on paper, and to clarify these vague thoughts and ideas that had been in my head. This brought a type of clarity to my business that was not there before.”

When I joined the Big Fish program I was already working in my “dream job” after leaving a corporate career to become a full time entrepreneur. My business was successful, and I even had a vision of the next step, but I had reached a block as to how to make it happen. I was also struggling with how to take the business to the next level. I often had other business owners in my field contact me for help in getting started, working through obstacles and moving forward, but I felt I didn’t have anyone to turn to for similar help.
The participants in the Big Fish program provided the forum for just that. I could share my issues and get insights from other successful people. The structure of the program and Lorin’s skilled facilitation provided the necessary tools which enabled me to push through those blocks (both mental and actual) to move toward the next level both personally and professionally.
Finally, the individual coaching was the last ingredient which helped me to go a little deeper into my particular issues and I left every coaching session inspired and motivated.
The Big Fish program is really more than a “program”, it’s a way of thought and being. It will make a difference in every area of your life!
Nannies From The Heart
As an owner of an already successful company, Big Fish has provided more ‘ah ha’ moments than I have ever experienced! I feel so inspired after each teleclass with my lion fish group. Not just inspired to ‘work or do’ but to also pause think and feel with confidence. The combination of teleclasses and personal coaching has me integrating the new content at a more personal level, the combination is helping me not just as an owner but in all aspects of my life.
I am currently in the Big Fish program. I look forward to our teleclasses each week .I have owned a successful business for six years and I was successful by anyone’s standards, however my business was ‘ho-hum’ and I needed to add some passion and spice to life/business. This program is exciting because it is teaching me to believe in the possibilities, look for what would make business fun again. Running a business is challenging,and the Big Fish program is helping me to think differently than I ever have before.We put our energy and attention on our vision and our limitless boundaries. I am learning to trust that the right people are coming into my life,to trust my own decisions and take bold actions that I probably would not have taken if I was not a Big Fish!
The Big Fish program allows you to dream BIG but better than that the program provides both a guide and the support for you to accomplish even BIGGER than you ever thought possible. The program is essential for any leader looking to go to the next level. Big Fish is not only about growing your business but more importantly the program assures you are living each day to enjoy your journey.
Dawn is the owner and one of the founders of DeNovo Research, a pharmaceutical research firm. She has a team of 6 people, her focus was keeping the business going rather than leading the team, by choice. She enrolled her entire team in the Big Fish program! Her goals are to create great leaders, implement corporate values, design a 10 year vision with her team and create the plan to make the vision real. She is also finding that it is assisting with communication among the team and those communication tools have become critical to the inner workings of this successful company. She is on her way to wild success as we speak.
I was a small fish stuck in the mud with little motivation, inspiration or vision for our companies: Blaze Interactive and Indra Successful Coach Marketing. After I made contact with Lorin Beller an ocean of possibilities was brought into my life.
The Big Fish group coaching call are my life-line to success: Lorin has guided us to see and write our visions, to see ourselves as leaders, to find the ‘entrepreneur’ that was lost in the day-to-day of running a business. She has helped us see the big picture, and how we can live from that, versus whatever situation we may be in. And in doing that our situation has changed: our goals seem to have taken a life of their own – accomplishing themselves with ease and grace, not ‘push and frustration’.
Coach Amy, as I call her, has helped me so much with moving beyond my personal limitations, to see my gremlins, and help me believe in myself. I am totally amazed by her coaching capabilities – she is like pure gold.
Thank you for helping me grow into a Big Fish!
