I've been working with entrepreneurs like these:
You can see more examples of my
clients and their projects here.
- A training school owner
worked with me to begin sharing her innovative ideas about leadership and personal
development on a worldwide basis. I coached her on balancing her heavy workload with
managing her health, nurturing a new relationship, and writing a book, and advised her
on marketing and writing techniques, while growing her school from a local success
into a global enterprise.
- An author and speaker
asked me to help her overcome her fears about taking her message to a wider audience,
and end her procrastinating. I coached her to uncover the self-sabotaging attitudes
and habits that were getting in her way, advised her on productivity techniques, and
mentored her in marketing and self-promotion.
- An MD who founded a medical
research facility to develop new treatments for AIDS/HIV hired me to advise his
management team about appropriate marketing strategies and coach them to build
a marketing action plan, and mentor the doctor/CEO himself on entrepreneurial thinking,
better delegation skills, and project management techniques.
- The new director of a social
enterprise asked me to assist with creating a sustainable business model for the
venture, and a realistic action plan for her ambitious goals. I advised her on
developing a comprehensive business plan, mentored her in fundraising, and coached her to
build her management and communication skills.
- A husband-wife
team of psychotherapists hired me to help reorganize their private practices
so they could spend more time exploring new frontiers and less on just making a living.
I mentored them in appropriate business models and realistic marketing
plans, and coached them on overcoming their resistance to marketing, adopting more
productive habits, and developing their own potential.
Here's what some of my clients say about our work together:
"You have been instrumental in facilitating the development of a successful business
plan, and your extensive professional network has brought into this organization a wealth
of important connections... You are both results-oriented and aware of the need to honor the
integrity of the individual human spirit... In you I have found a mentor, a coach, a
business-savvy advisor, a skilled networker, and a wise woman."
Amy Henderson • Founding Director, Ashoka Youth Venture San Francisco
"Thank you, C.J., for being a mentor and partner
on the protracted journey to engineer my work around my talents, values, and deepest concerns.
Your coaching has helped me keep the faith that I can make significant contributions and achieve
prosperity at the same time."
Barbara Saunders • Writer, Researcher & Activist
"I chose you as my coach because of
your demonstrated mastery of your business, your expertise in business marketing,
and my sense of your integrity. You delivered on all those... What I experienced and came
to value so highly is your ability to hold a space, keeping me in my vision
and helping me practice self-compassion."
Beth Hand, MBA • Leadership Development Coach
"It's wonderful to have a champion in your life that supports you in
achieving your dreams. It is even better when that champion has the wisdom, expertise and experience to guide you in the
steps to take to make your dreams a reality. That is what my experience in working with
C.J. has been like."

CLIENTS NOW! BUSINESS COACHING
with Donna Feldman
I help my clients make a better living doing what they love.
I know that you went into business for yourself, or chose the
line of work you're in, for a reason. You saw that it would
get you something you wanted — control over your time, a better
working environment, more money, the possibility of passive
income, using your talents, sharing your vision, changing the
world — whatever it was. And that choice you made was about
actually doing the work: serving your clients, whoever they
But if you don't have clients, or don't have
enough of them, you're not getting what you want — you're

* What is right livelihood?
Right livelihood is meaningful work, consciously chosen, which makes the best use of your talents,
honors your values, and benefits others. The term originates in Buddhist teachings, where
right livelihood is one of the steps of ethical conduct on the Noble Eightfold Path to enlightenment
and the end of suffering for all. In modern times, right livelihood has come to mean the work that
you were "meant to do."
Right livelihood entrepreneurs serve a higher purpose than personal fulfillment or making a living. Their
primary aims are to use their gifts to help others or make the world a better place. They have chosen
entrepreneurship as a vehicle for earning a purposeful livelihood.

** What is a social entrepreneur?
If your venture has a mission to create social change, and that mission holds a higher
priority for you than maximizing personal profits, you may be a social entrepreneur.
Social entrepreneurship can take many forms: starting or leading a mission-driven business,
founding or directing an innovative nonprofit, implementing a community initiative,
serving as an activist, working to educate others through writing, teaching, speaking, or
artistic works — or even launching a movement. Social entrepreneurs are innovators;
they introduce new approaches to solve social problems.
Related to social entrepreneurship are two other terms: social enterprise and social
ventures. Social enterprise is the use of business methods to achieve a social mission.
For example, a nonprofit organization that funds its programs by selling products or
services. Or a for-profit business that directs a significant percentage of its profits
to a social cause, or whose products and services are aimed at solving a social problem.
Social venture is a broader term that applies to any organization,
business, or initiative launched for the purpose of addressing social problems or
creating social change.
C.J.'s clients include all three of these: social entrepreneurs, leaders of social enterprises,
and people launching or expanding social ventures. For more about these topics, visit
