My testimonial is for Elaine Betts at Go Far Consulting. Elaine has been my business coach for almost three years. She seems to know just about everything and everybody. Since starting to work with Elaine, I am finally working and accomplishing both my professional and personal goals. I am finishing a total custom remodel of my condo with a redesigned home office where I can work just as effectively as when I am in my office. I have put this project off for over 20 years. At the same time, I am increasing my business revenue and am enjoying more quality free time. If that was not enough, Elaine helped me completely revise my new website, helped to improve my voice (she is a certified voice coach) and assisted with the design for my new stationery and business cards. Sounds magical, doesn’t it? That is what it feels like working with Elaine Betts. – Patricia Fisher

I just wanted to take the time and let you know that although I haven’t implemented all the time management tools you shared with me. I am using some of them and those have made a huge difference to my work and efficiency. – DB

I am really enjoying and having fun doing this. Thanks for explaining everything to me in detail and I am looking forward to showing you my progress when we meet. Thanks a lot for believing in me that I can do this. I am really loving it as it positively charges and transforms everything in a very good way. – Benson

Elaine is a consultant with a fairly broad practice that I will loosely (and likely inaccurately) describe as leadership development, coaching, productivity. We share a client where she is doing strategy and leadership work; MeritHR is doing HR compliance.


I have known her for over a year now. Today she did a short talk (30 minutes) on networking and relationship building to a group of women leaders, many of whom are consultants and coaches themselves. Her lively, engaging, interactive, and, most importantly, relevant presentation had all of us taking notes. I walked away with new understandings and actionable methodologies to improve in an area in which I was fairly comfortable with my existing skill set. – D. D.

You’re one of a kind! You clearly know what you are doing, and you are able to connect people when no one else can. – D. H. – Business Owner

You are an inspiration as always!  Thank you for making such a tremendous positive difference in my business. – S. M.

I have been coached by Go Far Consulting for more than 3 years. In that time, Elaine Betts has supported, cajoled, challanged and encouraged me in many ways, with regard to the success of my business as well as my personal success.

I have seen my business grow in ways I could not have accomplished by myself. She has also been there for me when times were tough; always sharing positive inspiration and support.

I plan to continue this relationship into the future, so that I can see even more success in my business and in my personal life.

I highly recommend Elaine Betts and Go Far Consulting to any business professional who would like to see positive, measurable results in their business and life in general – G.W.

I’ve only been working with Elaine for one month. April is typically a slow month but we have increased business already and we still have another week left this month. I have felt better about the work that I am doing. – E.T.

Thank you for giving me permission to follow my heart. – S. M.K.

Testimonial From Cory Nott, Software Developer

Testimonial From Dr. Erik van Slooten

Construction Company Testimonial

“Before I started working with Elaine I was quoting an average for client projects of $30,000 per quote. Since working with Elaine my average quote for client projects has increased to $100,000 per quote, which is an increase of 333%.

One of Elaine’s strengths is her ability to pick through someone’s brain and formulate a strategic plan of action. Her openness to brainstorm and come up with creative ideas helps to determine realistic goals and set up an action plan to achieve it.

Some of the things that made a difference by working with Elaine Betts was generating the priority of tasks for goals, formulating a system to continually follow up and accountability of obtaining realistic goals. Her strengths are in coming up with a projection formula in the pursuit of clients and follow up, identifying what to track  and making the connections.”

I found her services were very helpful

I would like to recommend to you Elaine Betts. I found her services were very helpful in providing a structure to support my busy days.

I found her services very useful and particularly liked her approach to how my office should be organized.

She started with my workday, the things I had to do and the things I had to get to. Within hours, mountains of files and data were sorted, color coded and rearranged, and my office completely rearranged.

From Scatter to Laser Focus

In just my first appointment, I was able to get everything out of my head and onto paper so I can turn them into action items that I could just check off. It is such a relief!

Elaine made me turn everything into laser focus instead of being scattered.

Elaine helped me move forward with my business

Elaine and Go Far Consulting helped me identify key ways to improve my time management, monitor key metrics in my business, and be more effective for my clients.  The combination of online and phone seminars plus individualized monthly sessions gave me the tools to move forward.
