Connie Clace, CPC :: Connie’s Career Coaching Services
In 2012, after retiring from the RCMP, I thought of starting my own business as a Career Coach. From the very beginning, Rita was instrumental in the shaping of a new and what became a successful venture. She worked tirelessly with me from the ground floor, helping me shape the direction of the business and what my focus would be, to creating an amazing website. She continues to work on the website, updating it on a regular basis, to ensure maximum exposure and keeping things current and relevant.
Last fall, Rita encouraged me to write a book to help RCMP Applicants prepare for the Regular Member Selection Interview. I found the task to be quite overwhelming, but Rita worked with me to come up with a great product, and then spent hours and hours on the technical side of uploading the final document on my website for purchase. Without her knowledge and expertise, the book never would have been completed.
Rita has been a key element to the success of my business and my ability to become a great coach. Rita, thank you for everything that you have done.
Bettina Elias Siegel :: Blogger & Advocate, The Lunch Tray
When a fellow blogger first recommended Rita to me, I was pretty skeptical of the whole idea of paying for “blog coaching.” I was also worried that Rita was going to dispense one-size-fits-all advice that wouldn’t really apply to my own work, which in some ways doesn’t fit the traditional blogging mold. But I could tell right away on our call that Rita had done her research on me and my blog and that she understood my particular goals. I was so impressed after our coaching call, I wound up also hiring her to help me re-design my blog.
I had very (VERY!) specific ideas of how I wanted my redesigned blog to look, and I was afraid that Rita would grow tired of my detailed emails and feedback. But she never once made me feel that I was annoying her. To to the contrary, she reassured me that she only wanted me to be 100% satisfied with the end product. And that’s exactly the result she achieved. I absolutely LOVE my blog’s new look!
Sally Kuzemchak :: Real Mom Nutrition
I was feeling completely STUCK. I felt like I needed to take my blog to another level or get out of the game entirely. Thankfully, Rita gave me the direction I needed to elevate and improve my blog–not only the big-picture pep talk I needed, but also the nitty-gritty, nuts-and-bolts stuff I needed to do and change to make my blog better. And when I didn’t have the technical know-how to do it myself, she walked me through it. I will forever be grateful to Rita for busting me out of my blog crisis!
Amanda Perry :: Gym Owner, Skill of Strength
We knew we needed a fresh site, but we were looking for something that would be easy to use, both for our prospects/clients and for ourselves in order to make changes.
I was also concerned because we have some diverse audiences. I write mainly about fitness, nutrition, pregnancy and mindset for women versus my husband who writes for MMA fighters.
Rita helped us with our company website as well as my blog and my husband’s blog. She was a pleasure to work with and she has been really easy to get in touch/keep in touch with as simple questions come up! We get all kinds of compliments on our sites!
Rita handled the different looks and feels beautifully!

I reached out to Rita to help me move my wordpress.com blog that I had been working on for almost 4 years to a self-hosted site. I was nervous about the process – losing content, etc. The process is quite challenging and technical, so I asked for an expert’s help. After talking with Rita on Skype, my fears immediately resided as I knew the site was in good hands. She’s amazingly talented, easy to talk to, and so sweet! I placed my trust in her and the site transfer occurred without any issues :) Without a doubt! I highly recommend Blog Genie to others and already have! Rita really takes time to get to know you and your mission. Through talking with Rita, she helped me polish the design and did a few technical tweaks.

Danielle :: DK Runner Mom
Rita Barry came highly recommended to me as someone who could help me set up my blog and website. Rita did not disappoint! From our very first email exchange she was extremely professional and informative about her various services. I am what you would call technologically challenged and Rita was very patient with me and did a fabulous job of explaining the various aspects to setting up my site. Once we decided on a theme, Rita was very prompt with her response time to me and even had my site ready days before the anticipated start date. Once I started fine tuning my site I still had a lot of questions and Rita was always available to help me! I am so happy with the finished product and will absolutely use Rita again in the future. I will also be sure to recommend her to anyone I know that is in the market for her services, as I know they will not be disappointed!

I just want to formally thank you for doing such a beautiful job on my baby. I love it and can’t wait to show it off to everyone!! You are so fantastic at what you do and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you again!! :)
Carly Pizzani :: Fine Fit Day
It was such and easy and fun experience! Rita is super professional, very responsive and she’s so lovely! She would also show me things she thought would work I hadn’t even thought of, some of which we kept for the final design, like the awesome new Client Testimonials layout. I can’t recommend Blog Genie enough.
