Client Testimonials


Rick Landuyt

“When an entrepreneur makes the decision to exit their business, they are embarking on two journeys: leaving their business, hopefully in great hands, and entering the next chapter(s) of their life. Navigating through all of the details filled with financial and emotional decisions can be tough to get through. For me, having Elisa, an executive life coach with experience helping CEOs through this process, made the whole process rewarding and relatively stress-free. I am very grateful for all her insights and ability in allowing me to discover and execute what was best for me.”

Russell Smith

“Career transitions are tough, particularly when you haven’t had to look for a job in your entire adult life. Working with Elisa and her You Pivot program helped me work my transition in a holistic way, guiding me through an evaluation of my personal and professional goals, desires, and objectives. The result was clarity about what I wanted personally, how my professional life would help me get there, and how to articulate my story concisely and clearly as I transitioned to a new role.”


Kerri Schoonyoung

“Working with Elisa as a business coach has been invaluable. Her insight and approach to coaching is impactful because of her experience across a wide variety of industries. She brings this background to coaching and really provides a 360-degree perspective to business strategy. Elisa encourages me as an entrepreneur , and she also knows the value of honest conversation when needed. Together we’ve asked tough questions, solved complex challenges, and discussed creative strategies.”


Laura Ellis

“Few individuals have the ability to so powerfully impact your professional and personal growth like Elisa Spain. Membership in her Vistage CEO Group 3361 has transformed me in countless ways. I now spend far more time working on the strategy, growth, and development of my business, and far less time working on what’s perceived as the “urgent” issues. Particularly, Elisa and the group excel in exploring/processing issues, educating, challenging, holding one another accountable in a ‘carefrontational’ manner. I highly recommend Vistage CEO Group 3361 and Elisa Spain to any business leader who is looking to break through to new levels of success, both personally and professionally.”

John Yerger

“As I’ve moved to the next stage of my career, Elisa has been a key source of advice and support – knowing when to push me and when to listen so that I get the results I want. In addition to her coaching, Elisa combines the strong, diverse and supportive leaders in Group 3361 with informative and provocative speakers, and all the resources of Vistage to deliver a unique and comprehensive set of tools. She then works with you to take full advantage of them. I strongly recommend Elisa and 3361 to CEOs who want to take themselves and their organizations to another level.”
