Trish Williams

Hey there! I’m Trish.

I'm a warm, outspoken, driven Canadian OT turned business coach with a passion for helping other OT entrepreneurs build a profitable and lasting business. I have been an OT for 27 years and built two successful businesses. My #1 goal is to lay it all on the table to empower you with the tools and resources you need. I spent years as an entrepreneur working IN my business instead of ON my business, and I now know (and can share!) the benefits of truly embodying a CEO lifestyle. I’ve done a lot of growing (and it never truly ends) and unlocked keys to success in business and in life.

In a distinctly OT way.
