“It's not nailing the niche market, product excellence, number crunching or forecasting that is most difficult about building a strong business with staying power. Nope. It's getting the people part right. Like, really right. That's where my girl Rikka comes in. Mighty warrior of communication, passion and consciousness. She has HR X-ray vision. She will tell you why your hiring game-plan is wack, then she'll dust you off, make you laugh and bring you back to your senses — so you can attract and retain the talent your business needs to take off like a freaking bullet train. Yup, that's how she does it. Rikka’s got mad soul; a wife, mother, entrepreneur and full time intuitive risk-taker. She's got stories for days of trials, failures, flops, funnies and successes that make you feel as if you can go out and manifest your wildest dreams. She will make you feel like anything is possible, but won't let you float away with a bunch of new age BS. Because she knows getting to what you want is a complicated combination of…dedication and hard work. An hour with Rikka and you will have belly-laughed, teared up and strategized to make momentous change. She will inspire you to listen to your gut, and she just can't wait to tell you what's happened when she didn't listen to hers.
A no holds barred Minnesota gal, with a grin for days, giving you the straight goods, and a sense of humour that raises you up when you're feeling like a hot mess.
Like I said, that's Rikka. Enough energy to single handedly power a jet. Pedal to the metal. Pushing a boundary near you.”
