“The insight she provides is priceless.”
Here’s what they’re saying…
It’s not what you say about yourself that counts, but what others say about you. Here is what some clients are saying about their coaching experience. I’d love to add your testimonials here, too!
Networking for Women workshop feedback
First in the Professional Development Series produced by the Upper Keys Business and Professional Women’s Club (BPW). All net proceeds go to the club’s adult scholarship fund for women.
Jackie was excellent and pushed us out of our “norm” — comfort zone.
She was upbeat and really easy to talk to — she knows her stuff. Highly recommend her for networking solutions for any group, individuals or company.

I learned so much.
Going in, I didn’t think I have anything new to learn. Very eye-opening. Thank you, Jackie, and BPW!

It was very helpful in gaining confidence to network.
I was very uncomfortable to take the course at first, but I knew that opportunities like these don’t come often. In my first course of the Upper Keys Business and Professional Women’s Professional Development Series, I quickly realized the importance of networking and how to overcome the fear of getting out and involved in the community.
I have a difficult time speaking in front of people and for me this course breaks through my personal fears and will hopefully help me help others more efficiently in my line of work…helping emerging artists take their first steps in stepping out and presenting their work to the community
Learning how to network and interact with business people always seemed intimidating to me and I had no idea where to begin. We are all in the business of trying to make things happen, not only for ourselves but for each other.
Jackie is here to help us recognize that in whatever business we are in, there is always more to learn in the realm of confidence and professionalism. There is a process to professionalism that helps us succeed in getting through to the movers and shakers. Learning to expand your networking circle is key to success.
This program is a wonderful step in the right direction. I’m very thankful for this awesome opportunity to grow.

As a result of her time management coaching, I have stepped outside of my comfort zones (financial and business) and outsourced more of my business, more than I ever thought I would.
It has been a pleasure getting to know Jackie Harder from a social media group on Facebook to some coaching and most importantly a listening ear as a friend. I can see the value that she has, and is able to provide to others, through our friendship and her perspectives on life.
It’s refreshing to have someone take a look at your business and/or personal situation and be aware of your sensitive emotions but tell you like it is, and give you a better outlook on life in general. Sure, life can suck at times, but when you have folks who help you keep it real without tiptoeing around you, but able to tell you like it is — that is pure gold.
Guess what? I am still profitable AND have more time. I am also tracking my time better and DOing what I always knew to do… but wasn’t. I have increased my prices and been reminded, constantly, I HAVE VALUE and deserve it.
But wait, there’s more. Jackie, the business coach, is an ideal business partner to someone in my industry, search engine optimization and website readability, so I have had the pleasure to work with her on some projects with some clients and work with her on her website. And we have, as friends and business cohorts, bounced stuff off each other.
Jackie Harder…an advocate for women, a super life coach, a mentor to my business, a business partner to help me expand my business while helping her with hers, a fellow participant in a social media inner circle, a time management aficionado and by far the highest of all – a new best friend. It is a complete HONOR to know Jackie and call her my friend.

Jackie takes the time to really listen and ask you those tricky questions that really make you think and find your way to the root of the problem.
I like to call her my accountability partner because she really is. Every time I find myself “stuck,” she is always there to give me the little push I need.
As for her Time Tips Facebook group, it’s amazing. Using the techniques Jackie has shared, I was able find an extra 3 hours a week to spend on the tasks that matter most and keep me moving forward in my business.
This is a great group where you can connect with like-minded individuals, share stories and struggles, get advice and really hone in on your time management. Oh yeah, and did I mention it’s FREE?
Chloe Forbes-Kindlen, social media strategist
Working with her was exactly what I had hoped to find in an editor!
She is thorough, professional, encouraging and timely. Jackie
also stretches you and asks questions to make you think about your writing – making you a better writer.
I loved my experience with Jackie and will use her in the future, as well as recommend her!

Her time management posts are so authentic and helpful.
She inserts plenty of humor into her suggestions and comments. I never feel worse after reading her posts and often get a good laugh or an improvement in my attitude.
Best of all, I am actually decreasing my multi-tasking and getting my work done more efficiently. Thanks, Jackie!
I would just like to thank Jackie Harder for creating the Time Tips time management group and making it so awesome.
Whenever I get on Facebook, it’s always one of my first stops. I love the time tips, inspiration, and most of all Jackie’s sense of humor.
I know it takes a lot of work to constantly be finding new things to post regularly, so thank you for your efforts! Much appreciated!

Working with Ms. Harder really inspired me, and gave me the confidence I needed to be prepared for my college scholarship interviews.
Practicing with her was the key to being ready for the interviews, and she made sure to cover any potential questions thoroughly.
I felt much more comfortable with the whole process after working with her, and came out of my first interview with a $115,000 scholarship. Ms. Harder helped me to develop my confidence and find my voice, and I would recommend her to anyone that needs to boost their interviewing skills.

I cannot say enough about her services.
I was clueless in this area and Jackie made the entire process easy and guided me through every detail. Jackie Harder created my website for real estate in 2013. She knows how to create websites and how to get activity moving on it. I would recommend her highly. Jackie spends countless hours making sure every detail is handled.
I am in the process of hiring her to do another website for a vacation rental property that we own in North Carolina.
Jackie Harder’s business counseling services are excellent as well. Her sessions are packed with common-sense information. Jackie will guide you in making business decisions. She also has an awesome plan to assist you to set and reach your goals. If you are stumped and cannot seem to go forward, call Jackie Harder. She will help you how to get where YOU want to go.
Jackie has a special way of listening to your needs. Then a custom plan is created for you.
I have recommended her to businesses to assist in changing their image, etc. I highly recommend her to all who read this.

Jackie Harder is a positive person and pleasure to work with.
As webmaster for Business & Professional Women/Florida, she designs and maintains our website to fit our professional persona.
She is timely with responses and makes suggestions to improve our marketing and public relations campaigns. I highly recommend Jackie and Key Dynamics!

Jackie’s counsel and networking have been invaluable to me in my recent “start up.”
I have known Jackie Harder for some time going back to her time at The Reporter [newspaper] and the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, and then her tenure as President of the Chamber. She has always been forthright and imaginative.
I was particularly lucky when she resigned from the Chamber to start her own business shortly after I had merged my Tax and Accounting Practice with a local firm allowing me to concentrate on Financial Planning.
I had a website that I had ignored hoping it was OK as was. Jackie straightened me out on that and jumped into fixing some things and spiffing up others so I am now proud of it.
She turned me on to an advertising medium of which I had been unaware and hooked me up with a local artist who developed a great ad for it; the very first day it came out, I received a call and have had several since.

She is dedicated, creative and amazing at what she does!
Jackie is the editor of our Upper Keys Business & Professional Women’s newsletter. As president of the organization for the past three years, I have seen her transform the newsletter into something people/members want to read!
It has enhanced our organization, brought in new members and brought in additional advertising revenue to go directly into our scholarship fund. Thank you, Jackie!

I would recommend this class, “Get Control of Your Time and Your Life,” to anyone.
I think it was simple, informative and practical.
The suggestions are easy life lessons that can be used professionally and personally and bring long-term benefits.

Although pessimistic at first, I am happy to report that coaching has had a significant impact on my business as well as personal life.
My confidence has improved resulting in a bigger paycheck as well as a much happier “me.” Jackie Harder has far exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend her services for anyone in the need of a great coach. Working with my coach has been OUTSTANDING!
Thank you, Jackie, for your mentorship, shared energy, and creative thinking. I love being one of your many success stories!

No preaching…..Jackie very cleverly got me to answer my own questions and set my own direction/goals, but then made sure I achieved them.
The checks and balances were exactly what I needed to assure I stayed on track.
I have saved all my notes from my sessions. Because I can easily fall back into prior behavioral patterns without constant self-discipline, the notes are a great tool and clearly show me how I felt when certain things were accomplished and important milestones were achieved. Since I thrive on euphoria (like most people), I long for the successes experienced during those coaching sessions and have implemented many of the techniques into my daily life now.
I loved having a longer list under “What I have accomplished since the last call” and a nice short list under “What I didn’t do, that I intended to do.” Recognizing the “Opportunities before me” was the first step in pulling myself out of the “comfy rut.”
I was intrigued by the concept of having a personal coach as opposed to going to a self-help seminar with a large group of people. My
coaching sessions were tailored to me!
Patty Ivey, state government project administrator
I felt truly alone, was fighting debilitating depression and a lack of self-esteem.
As an independent service contractor during an economic crisis where jobs and clients are nowhere to be found, one of the biggest challenges I faced was remaining confident and optimistic.
I knew I needed to get inspired and find direction – and fast – if I was going to survive, so I contacted Jackie Harder at Key Dynamics for some coaching. I had no idea what she could offer someone so down in the muck, but what she offered was a life preserver.
First she encouraged me by reminding me that this economic crisis is affecting millions and that I was definitely not alone. She also reminded me of my talents, my future potential, and how valuable my contributions to my clients is and have been.
She worked with me to define business and personal goals, and we set deadlines to meet those goals. I began to feel back in charge and inspired, and it literally evaporated the depression that was smothering me.
Jackie not only reintroduced me to my old self, but she introduced me to the next, better, phase of me. Her optimism was relentless and contagious. It transferred over to me and now my friends, family, and NEW CLIENTS and I’m back in the saddle. Thank you, Jackie! You are the shiz!
Julia K. Hallagan, California
Your coaching helped me to clarify what I wanted to communicate, what was most important to say and gave me much more confidence.
Thank you so much for coaching me on this! I felt very inspired after our conversation.
She was caring, thought-provoking and insightful.
She has a gentle way of making you accountable and a kindness that encourages you to succeed.
She is the genuine article who puts others before her interests, and always finds the silver lining in any situation.
At The Sun News [newspaper in Myrtle Beach, S.C.], her leadership was apparent and her judgment was sound.
To read about how she has parlayed such established skills to being president of a chamber, and of her advice to businesses and individuals, I cannot say I am surprised. She is a natural not only in the profession, but also in person.
