In Their Own Words…
“When I started working with Davina it was two months after I opened the firm. Prior to working with Davina, I had a hard time closing business and to call the processes in my business systems would have been a stretch. I was working a full-time job and working my firm part-time.
“My original plan was to work full-time until the end of the year or at least until I was making the monthly financial goal that Davina and I set during our initial strategy meeting. Within the initial month of working with Davina I hit my financial goal for the month. The practice had gotten so busy that at the top of my list for the following week was to resign from the full-time job. I never looked back.
“What Davina brings to the table is invaluable. I went from a solo practitioner working part-time in my practice to working full time in my business, with a full-time staff person, and an intern. Feeling like Oprah but instead of cars I am handing out paychecks – my paralegal gets a paycheck, I get a paycheck, the intern gets some perks as well!!!
“The mindset work, process work, growth work, sales work are all things that I would not have undertaken with that level of intensity, and as a solo there would have been no accountability, nor would I have been able to realize such immediate results. I recommend Davina to any lawyer who is looking to grow their practice and work smarter not harder.”
Tara Brown, Esq., The Law Office of Tara Brown
“If you are looking for help growing or managing a small law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Davina Frederick! Davina worked with me for 24 weeks, and we more than doubled (almost tripled) my firm’s revenue since before I started with her. She is very business savvy and knows how to help you over any roadblocks (whether they are your own mental roadblocks or obstacles thrown in your path). She helped me stay focused and on track to reach my goals. I recommend her without reservation.
“She taught me how to work “on” my business instead of just “in” my business, daily, how to increase my referrals, and how to increase my conversion rate. We set weekly tactics for me to accomplish and she held me accountable. I’m not going to lie—it’s a lot of work, but the reward is worth it. The work is all YOURS to do, Davina gives you the tools you need to get it done. Weekly meetings helped me stay on track (since I tend to procrastinate with challenging tasks). She forces you out of your comfort zone, which is what I needed because my comfort zone was not increasing my bottom line.
“You probably call yourself a lawyer and not a salesperson. But the truth is, when you are a solo or a small firm, you ARE a salesperson. You are selling legal services and you are selling yourself. Let’s face it, lawyers are a dime a dozen in Florida. So, what sets you apart? Davina teaches you how to put on that salesperson hat to close the deal and confidently ask for a high retainer and get it! It’s just like anything else, you get out of it what you put into it.
“If you don’t do what she lays out, and you instead revert to your old habits (that weren’t working in the first place since that’s why you sought out help), then the program will not be successful for you. Her program is completely customized to the individual and the type of business because what works for me may not work for you, and vice versa. If you’re comfortable with your monthly income then don’t waste your time. But, if you want more and if your eye is on a beachfront condo or a fancy, luxury car, Davina can help you get there.”
Michele Lebron, Esq., Founder, Lebron Law, P.A.
“I started working with Davina late last year. A friend of mine recommended her after seeing excellent results. I really can’t say enough about how much Davina has assisted and guided me in taking my business to the next level-up. Ten minutes into our consultation, and I knew she was the one!
“Davina is very passionate about her client’s success, practical, and above all business savvy!
“Many entrepreneurs find it hard to hire a business advisor because we end-up hiring someone to be our boss. However, the reality is, sometimes we all need a new perspective (or a boss to make us do things!), and this new perspective will probably take us to the next level. If you are looking for a smart, creative, knowledgeable, and result-oriented advisor, then look no more, and get ready to put the pedal to the metal!”
Rania Arwani, Esq. Arwani Law Firm
“Davina, I want to truly thank you for what you have done, you don’t even know how much your support, encouragement and words of advice have meant for me. I would not be sitting here today without you pushing me. I know there’s so much work ahead of me and so many other difficulties to overcome but sitting here today in my own little office with my own stuff is the best feeling ever and I wouldn’t have done it without you encouraging me.
For the last six months I have found every excuse to avoid taking this leap of faith but your guidance gave me the strength and confidence to jump. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Dalyla Santos Furman, Esq., The Santos Law Offices
“As a new business owner and new mother, I started working with Davina at a time in my life when my needs were tall, but my resources were slim. She immediately helped me to streamline my goals and devise a realistic plan to achieve them. Her approach was always unique and effective. I value her insight and trust her advice implicitly.
Working with Davina has been the best business decision I’ve made to date.”
Anila S. Rasul, Esq., ASR Law Firm
“I worked with Davina of D. Frederick Media and Marketing because I desperately needed help with marketing and increasing the revenue of my company. Davina came highly recommended by a colleague I highly respect. The same colleague uses her services and I witnessed the success.
“Davina has a visionary platform where she discusses with you all your plans, goals and dreams. She gets you to stop and think about everything, like how you are currently doing things, how you could do things better, and where you can do things better. I particularly like the one-on-one approach. With Davina, her time is your time. During your sessions with her, you know she is 100 percent all about you, and how she can help you become who you want to be.
“Davina changed my life! Not only did she teach me how to market the company and network, she pulled me out of my shell and out of my comfort zone. She taught me confidence in myself and my knowledge. I can now speak to a room full of people. I can pick up the phone and make a cold call. I can create social media posts. I can create a whole new business and push it forward without looking back! (Which I did in 2017)
“I recommend Davina to any entrepreneur, small or large business owner who need to be pointed in the right direction to reaching their personal and business goals.”
Bobbie Witt, CEO, Bookkeeping Confidential
“I just had my VIP (Strategic Planning) session with Davina Frederick today and what an eye opener it was. I gained so much clarity about my business growth, mental blocks and actionable steps to take moving forward. I can’t wait to dig into all my homework, I know it is not going to be easy, but I am committed to challenging myself and excited about my growth as well. Davina is definitely the real deal!”
Ayesha Chidolue, Esq., Founder, The Chidolue Law Firm
“Davina Frederick has helped me grow my business enormously in 2016, to the point I was able to support two businesses without tapping into my family savings or retirement to carry me through. (Working with her) is a small investment compared to what you get in return.”
Laurie Reid, LMFT, CEO, Breaking the Cycle Consulting
“Davina held up a mirror to me and didn’t let me look away—no matter how painful the image in front of me. She’s not going to sugar-coat if for you, but then you are foolish if you think she should. She helped me recognize that my dreams could only begin to come to fruition if I ditched my tendency towards “magical thinking” (ouch) and made a plan like the ones I make for MY clients (uhm, duh?).
“Of course, I rebelled—often—as creative, headstrong, artistic types are apt to do. But she was patient and, even better, FIRM. And in 12 weeks, I secured more contracts and requests for new business than the year prior’s total. And I made some really tough decisions about investing in my business that I would have spent months over-analyzing and avoiding—decisions that are continuing to pay off.
“Most importantly, she restored my belief in my talents and skills and by doing so, brought me back to the place where I genuinely love my work, love and respect my clients, and can effectively manage a great team and have a true understanding of my purpose in helping my clients.”
Angela Kendall, CEO, Spark Rocket Marketing
“I have worked with Davina Frederick as my Business Growth and Marketing Strategy Advisor for more than nine months. In that time, I’ve experienced tremendous growth in my business, including the following: added another attorney; revenues increased exponentially; complete rebranding of my website and marketing materials; improved website SEO; and attracted better quality clients. These successes are due almost entirely to the personal and professional growth I’ve achieved under Davina’s guidance. I consider her services the best investment I’ve made in my law firm and career.”
Suzanne Meehle, Esq. Managing Partner, Meehle & Jay, P.A.
“Davina and I have been working together for close to a year and I can’t say enough about her. First, I say that we’ve been “working TOGETHER” because I truly consider Davina a part of my team. She knows me, and she knows my business, even though she’s not in healthcare or aesthetics, she’s made my business, HER business, and that means a lot when you are putting your heart and soul into a venture and you feel as though you have a partner cheering right alongside you!
“Second, Money! Within two weeks of our partnership, I tripled my revenue! Davina showed me how important focus is, in addition to setting goals and systematically achieving them because of that focus, It’s the ‘fastest path to cash!’
“Lastly, is her “no excuses” mentality. She will hold your hand when needed, but she will also hold you to your potential. As an entrepreneur, there are days when I feel like I can’t do anymore. I’ve texted/called her for advice, a good cry, and a reality check, and she’s always there to serve.
“Davina is an invaluable resource to my success, and I adore her. If you’re considering hiring her, you won’t regret it. Listen, I know you may be thinking “It’s soooooo much money!” I thought the same thing. But now, having done the work WITH her, I can say that it’s the best money I ever invested. (And I just renewed for another year!)”
Autumn Norton, MSN, ARNP, CEO, Bodhi Aesthetics & Wellness
“Davina has a keen insight into what you need for your business. Her coaching program is pragmatic and customer for your business. She is the consummate professional and delivers on her promises. I’ve learned so much! I wish I had this foundation years ago.”
