Tobey As Mentor

Transform Your Life

I act as a mentor to guide people who seek a breakthrough in their lives. 

I have mentored hundreds of individuals through crisis, opportunity and reinvention, and I have a unique combination of intuition, pragmatism, honesty and tenderness to assist those who seek support, encouragement and fresh insight on their journey. 

Sometimes I work with clients in pragmatic business ways, and sometimes I guide them to shape and edit a manuscript, but more and more often I use a wide variety of tools to mentor people to reach their desired goals in life. I offer copy writing and editing, marketing and social media coaching, insights on business plans and more. Please see my Rates & Services page for more details.


I have had the pleasure of working with Tobey as joint volunteer for a local nonprofit organization and consulting with her regarding my business and career plan. Tobey is not only knowledgeable and intuitive, but what struck me most was her ability to take ideas from a small spark to the big picture as well as take a big picture idea down to the starting foundation, with a clear vision of everything in between. From individual projects to large business plans, this skill is of incredible value and hard to find. I also found in Tobey a large knowledge base and strong capacity to both listen and communicate, resulting in interactions that are both dynamic and productive. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking her expertise and insight.

Tobey has done a fantastic job: getting me up to speed with social media--facebook, twitter, socialoomph, youtube and mailchimp, as well as designing a terrific announcement for my first monograph. She even helped me make a book trailer, which I had not even considered before! Above all, her positive attitude is worth the price of admission.  Her support and enthusiasm is worth ten times the charge for her services.  She brings an informed, acute sensibility and aesthetic point of reference that is invaluable and unique.  I wholeheartedly endorse her.

Tobey makes the scary world of business development playful, interesting and enlightening. Whether you need a facilitator to help you align your livelihood with your soul’s purpose or a master strategizer to help you navigate marketing and promotions, Tobey will blaze the trail & get you there!”

When I started my coaching sessions with Tobey, I was blocked. I had a million ideas, a few passions, and almost no faith in myself. Tobey helped me focus my vision and find my voice. She encourages me with her honesty, inspires me with stories and creative assignments, and gives me the skills I need to be successful in business.  I’ve since launched a website, learned to market myself, and now I’m teaching classes and giving presentations throughout SLO county. Give her a call and watch your business grow!
