Business Consultant & Advisor

Helping you build your business foundation or transition your career

Hi, I’m Harriet! You have a dream to create a business, build a company, grow your employees, or want to explore new careers; Training Solutions can help you achieve your goals.  

My Story

Growing up in my father’s hardware company, I learned key foundational tools for business success: customer service, target marketing, management development and more. My learning continued throughout my career including a master’s degree in performance management. I fine tuned and expanded my knowledge as the Vice President of operations for a specialized national retail company.

Finally, I was ready to make the leap and start my own business, Training Solutions, a boutique consulting firm that provides expert resources for organizations and individuals to help them achieve their goals, improve customer satisfaction, develop staff on all levels, guide strategic/business planning, address legal and compliance regulations, and positively impact both retention and recruitment.

My Expertise

Strong in Academics

BA from the University of Massachusetts; M.Ed. from Boston State College;  instructor in Management, Training, and Human Resource Development at the University of California Los Angeles.

The Approach

You know you need someone to help you with your business; you don’t know where to start or with whom.

At Training Solutions we offer an introduction to what consulting can do for you.  We meet for 1 to 1 ½ hours discussing your issues and offering ideas or solutions. At the end we explain our packages in less than 5 minutes.  You can then decide if you want to move forward or not.  Either way you have information you didn’t have before for only $100! 

Isn’t your business worth that investment?


You are terrific! I am consistently inspired and impressed by your many, many, talents. Thank you for being a part of the program and performing so professionally and intelligently.

I want to take his opportunity to thank you for all the work you have done for Scherzer International; from our initial request to refine our hiring process, to the management training program, to coaching Stacey, to facilitating our reporting project.
You listened to us before taking action, designed a program that was truly needed, appeared for your work fully prepared and on-time, and provided feedback and follow-up. In addition, it is apparent to all of us, you know your stuff.
I look forward to having you coach two more managers and continuing to assist us with our reporting program and other projects.
It has been a pleasure working with you.
