Entrepreneur Coaching for Women
I was brand-new to my business venture and stumbled in rather naively! To be honest, I didn’t really know what I was doing…
Then Lynn came into my life. She looked at my business and helped me realise that I needed to create a business around the life I wanted.
Together, we focused on what was working and what wasn’t: marketing and sales, my work hours, my values within my business, as well as scheduling time to enjoy life. Lynn also helped me build out my revenue streams by adjusting the packages I offered. Her suggestions were simple to implement and I could easily handle them without becoming overwhelmed.
Lynn is a great sounding board and business expert. She provided the objective opinion I truly needed. And she is definitely “with you and for you”, which gave me a lot of confidence and reassurance. She is truly passionate about helping other women in business and I highly recommend her!

I love working with Lynn!
For me, it was the right connection. And from the first time I talked to her, I knew I would be in good hands…
Lynn is organized and focused, full of ideas, and always so supportive of my progress and process. She always guides me to where I need to go, but also leaves room for changes, personal growth, and self-reflection. I always feel like I’m getting so much from her mentoring and coaching, because she helps me with all the things that are not my strengths and makes me feel like I can do it all.
I definitely recommend her, especially for anyone that needs business coaching. She works from the heart, and loves what she does, and it shows.
Thank you so much, Lynn!

Leadership & Executive Coaching
It was my first public event as an independent coach and you were a blessing to have in my corner.
You were intuitive and enthusiastic to find out the scope and reach of the program. You are a good thinking partner and sounding board, full of experience in the corporate arena and leadership thought circles. As a strategist, you asked great questions and brainstormed on how to improve audience participation and learning.
I appreciated your excellent participation on our business panel. You generously provided creative table worksheets; children’s drawings on What a Leader Is; a calm voice of reason in our team calls; warm connections with attendees at both events; and follow-up with attendees who provided positive feedback.
I believe you are a remarkable, sensitive, capable coach who can take people from a place of uncertainty and apprehension through a journey of discovery and identifying barriers – toward the achievement of clarified goals and objectives.
I wish you all the best, Lynn!
Kate Sayson, Sayson Leadership Development
What was your situation like before you worked with me? What problems were you facing?
I knew that I wanted to make some changes in my life, and I knew that I needed help getting started. I knew that I needed to make a change and start taking steps to better care for myself. When you are used to thinking about yourself last, it is really a process to identify what things I needed to do to take better care of myself.
What were some of your concerns or worries about hiring a coach? What were you afraid of?
I think I was worried that not much would change. However, I did know was I was worth taking the time to try and make changes. It takes honesty and vulnerability to admit where you are and allow someone else into the space that most times you wrestle with on your own. Fear of rejection or not being understood were two main things that have held me back in the past. However, I have really appreciated working with Lynn because she creates a safe space to process my thoughts out loud and I never felt it was unsafe to do that.
What was it like working together? What were some of the highlights of that experience?
Lynn is amazing to work with. She is patient and kind, but also knows how to gently identify areas where we needed to address an issue in further detail. One of the highlights of our time together has been looking holistically at how I am designed and how I function. I remember during this part of coaching having so many moments where I felt the light switch go on regarding why I was struggling in certain areas, because it differed so much from how I was designed.
What was different about this experience compared to other experiences you have had in the past? Would you consider working together again, and why?
I have absolutely loved my time working together with Lynn. I look forward to working with her in the future because I have seen the results. In a conversation with a friend, I was reminded of all the small steps I have taken in the last year because of my time in coaching. I am seeing growth in my personal life and I have an ongoing list of things I am currently working on. Whenever I feel discouraged I just refer back to my list and remind myself of how far I have come.
Who would you recommend me to?
I would recommend anyone who is tired of saying they need to make changes and are ready to actually do the work. Lynn is gracious and her process reaps results if one is ready to put in the work required.
Would you recommend me to a friend, and if so what would you tell them?
I believe everyone could benefit from coaching. Its important to invest in yourself and take the steps to become the best and healthiest version of yourself that you can be. A lot of times this is easier when you are working with someone who wants to see you succeed and is invested in ensuring you meet your goals. Don’t wait, start today. You will never regret the time you took to ensure a healthier and happier you!
Executive for Hire
I have known Lynn Matson for over 15 years, and was privileged to work with her in an executive capacity at Entrée Destinations. As Controller, Lynn oversaw all company finances and the creation of our accounting processes. She also used her business skills in so many other areas.
She oversaw our technology for many years. She was a strong player at the executive table, assisting us with our business model, business planning, budgeting, and employee engagement. Lynn was a true leader within the company, instrumental in developing and maintaining a spectacular culture of hard work, mutual respect, balance, and wellness.
Lynn’s time at Entrée Destinations was exceptional. She truly created long-term value. The benefits of her hard work live on and continue to be part of our company’s identity. I would not hesitate to recommend Lynn for any task that requires strong leadership, planning, and implementation within an organization.
Marc Telio, President, Entrée Destinations
Can-Four Industrial Supplies Ltd. has worked with Lynn on various projects over the last 20 years. In the last 2 years Lynn has joined our team as a part-time controller to help merge our 2 operating business’, streamline our accounting procedures, day to day business operations, re-develop our online presence, and to help identify weaknesses in our operations. Prior to Lynn joining our team we were having challenges getting the most out of our accounting software and with her help we’ve realized many benefits and as a whole our business runs in a much smoother fashion. Lynn’s insight into business and accounting has been invaluable in helping to position Can-Four Industrial Supplies Ltd for growth and stability for the coming years. Lynn is and will continue to be a helpful and valued member of our executive team today and into the future. I think Lynn would be a welcome addition to any company that needs leadership guidance and executive coaching.

Small Business Consulting
Before meeting Lynn, the financial and bookkeeping side of our business was always a stressor. Challenges arose that left us feeling out of control and ill informed about how our business was actually performing.
When Lynn came along, she set up the necessary structure to stay on top of all our businesses. She worked with us to develop a simple filing system that was easy to execute, as well as easy to maintain in the long-term.
Lynn also has excellent intuition. She helped us better understand our own unique strengths and business styles. She then helped us attain reasonable goals so that we felt informed, organized, and empowered. Since Lynn came into our lives, our understanding of our business financials has never been better!
