    As usually happens after I meet with Lin, I am energized. I feel a new sense of direction. As owner of Next Step, I'm great at stepping, stepping, stepping. But sometimes the steps take me too far off the beaten track. Lin brings me closer to the main road. I continually recommend her to friends who are wanting to investigate new directions. .... I know she is the best at helping you figure out where you want to go and how to get there." Martha M
