Testimonials on Teaching

Tobey is one of those rare teachers who can beautifully disseminate her vast knowledge into a format that her students can easily learn. Her approach to teaching is a combination of careful research coupled with her amazing intuitive ability to know what we each need to hear in order to facilitate our individual journey. I feel so blessed to have her as a teacher/mentor in my life.
--Annette Jones

It is a pleasure to have Tobey Crockett as a teacher. I have had the good fortune to take a class with her for about a year.  She does extensive research, explains the material so all in the room understand it.  She is a deep and upbeat teacher with a sense of humor. 
The questions she asks are profound and I  am amazed at what I uncover about myself because of her Socratic style of teaching. I am so glad I found this teacher.    
 -- Joy Cary

Tobey's Let Your Voice Be Heard class has been a great help to me. For most of our lives, we are taught to think about the needs of others, after all, that is the generous thing to do. And it is generous, of course. However, it has blinded me to my own desires and I have a bad habit of looking to others to see what they want me to do rather than really feeling into what I want. 
“Let Your Voice Be Heard” has already given me several tools to tease out my own voice from the overwhelming symphony of voices living in my head, voices of my parents, friends, lovers and society that give advice and tell me what to do.
It also has me looking at times in my life that I have gotten what I asked for and honoring the power of those requests. And thinking about how to ask for what I want rather than believing that I am asking too much of life and spending my time settling. I believe that everyone’s voice needs to be heard and so does mine.
-- Lori Wells

I signed up for this class because "let your voice be heard" spoke to me. Its magical how when I put that thought out there, the universe began showing me other info on voice. Though voice is what called me, I now realize that it's more than that. The spiritual realm began to invite me to open my limiting thoughts to more: visioning, manifesting, responsibility, outcomes, confidence, courage, faith, wants and desires these words tho few are now here in my present day thinkings.
There is more going on in all of this than I can or will ever comprehend, but being female, a woman in these times, who is being asked to allow my power to be felt, I am saying "yes" to the mystery that is being asked of me.
My Thanks to you Tobey and all the other brave women who have joined this gathering. I feel I'm receiving something much more - something magically beautiful is coming about. 
-- Joei Bidwell


Testimonials on Mentoring & Project Management

I have had the pleasure of working with Tobey as joint volunteer for a local nonprofit organization and consulting with her regarding my business and career plan. Tobey is not only knowledgeable and intuitive, but what struck me most was her ability to take ideas from a small spark to the big picture as well as take a big picture idea down to the starting foundation, with a clear vision of everything in between. From individual projects to large business plans, this skill is of incredible value and hard to find. I also found in Tobey a large knowledge base and strong capacity to both listen and communicate, resulting in interactions that are both dynamic and productive. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking her expertise and insight.

Tobey you are my hero when it comes to writers! I am a much more visual person so I appreciate it when someone can write and you are the top of the game. I just want to encourage anyone who is thinking of hiring you to go ahead and be prepared for amazing results.  Your work is so professional, and you have have such a good grasp of the subtleties and you do deliver.  Your word choices and creativity take the ordinary and make it sing.  That's a gift!

Jean Wells, artist   www.wellsart.com  

Tobey has done a fantastic job: getting me up to speed with social media--facebook, twitter, socialoomph, youtube and mailchimp, as well as designing a terrific announcement for my first monograph. She even helped me make a book trailer, which I had not even considered before! Above all, her positive attitude is worth the price of admission.  Her support and enthusiasm is worth ten times the charge for her services.  She brings an informed, acute sensibility and aesthetic point of reference that is invaluable and unique.  I wholeheartedly endorse her.

Tobey makes the scary world of business development playful, interesting and enlightening. Whether you need a facilitator to help you align your livelihood with your soul’s purpose or a master strategizer to help you navigate marketing and promotions, Tobey will blaze the trail & get you there!”   

Shantel Beckers, The Luminous Spirit  


When I started my coaching sessions with Tobey, I was blocked. I had a million ideas, a few passions, and almost no faith in myself. Tobey helped me focus my vision and find my voice. She encourages me with her honesty, inspires me with stories and creative assignments, and gives me the skills I need to be successful in business.  I’ve since launched a website, learned to market myself, and now I’m teaching classes and giving presentations throughout SLO county. Give her a call and watch your business grow!

As a writer, working with Tobey has been an exceptional experience.  She has edited my work with a keen eye and made critical suggestions to stories and grammar that enhanced my writing.  The relationship has been very collaborative and allowed me to maintain the integrity of my work, which I appreciate.  And her expertise doesn’t end there.  Tobey has made herself available for assistance with marketing and promotion.  I am fortunate to have found Tobey for her editing services.  I have been so pleased with her work that I recommended her to some of my writing peers, who were similarly satisfied.

I really value my writer, editor relationship with Tobey. She keeps me in line with grammar, plot, and consistent rendering of my characters. Her suggestions go beyond style, and drive the story concept. She’s helped to mature my writing technique, and her expertise has been instrumental to my growth.

Tobey did the impossible! She helped organize statistical data in a very creative way that will help people easily understand a complex issue! I think readers of the website she created will enjoy learning about water, where we get it, how we use it, how we can conserve it, and how people can work together to solve problems in a whole new way. Working with Tobey is a true partnership. She's tactful and diplomatic, but not afraid to give her opinion, which I appreciated very much. Working with you is a joy Tobey. Thanks for all your hard work and creative input.

Tobey Crockett rocks!

Seriously, she has a keen sense for details in business and the latest trends.  She's a gifted wordsmith, web designer, marketer and more.  I stayed out of overwhelm while creating a new project and success as Tobey helped me pull the fundamental steps together with a 'connect the dots' template for me. She gently guided me to stick with the steps and get the foundation first.  For a creator like me, that's a brilliant achievement.

Tobey Crockett delivered experience, ingenuity, and skill to create a web site which I’m pleased with and which I can edit myself. She walked me through the acquisition of a domain name and guided me in marketing my new book The Custer Conspiracy.  She is accessible, extremely bright, and a delight to work with.  Her advice continues to be on target and is greatly appreciated.

I do not enjoy chatting with strangers on connecting flights, and yet I am eternally grateful that I happened to sit across from Tobey Crockett when I was just starting to call Los Angeles home. For whatever reason, she felt this stranger might be a good fit for an internship at a big PR firm. Turns out she was right, and the internship turned into a job. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tobey on numerous projects and can say that she is one of the most knowledgeable and savviest people I know.

On behalf of our client, Absolut, she helped manage our involvement with the prestigious LA International Biennial Invitational, and was effective at dealing with artists, gallery owners and press alike, due to her grace, charm and expertise. She is a true talent whose gift for communicating and connecting with people cannot be overstated.

I highly recommend you for all you do. Clarity is a key word for me, and you made 'doing me' so much easier and clearer.  You brought my vision into a tangible place on the net, so that now my vision and my work is visible to everyone, and you were gentle but firm in leading me to this.  You helped me get there and made it available to me, by breaking it down and letting me get into it one step at a time.  I felt like my material was like a puzzle and you just effortlessly and graciously pulled all the pieces together, and I deeply appreciate that.

You not only built the sites but you put me together, and in the process let me see new things about myself and that is a gift.

Tobey, with so many people developing web sites, doing web based work and creating their own businesses, there has got to be a huge demand for your gift in this area.  You write great copy and press releases!  To date my favorite bio remains the one you did for me and Burning Torch. You're really good at what you do!

Karyn Craven, President, 
Burning Torch Inc 
   
Tobey is a creative, self-directed problem solver, bringing energy, ideas and solutions with her. She can lead or follow; either way the group looks to her as an essential element of success. Her broad life experiences suit her to fill in where others are not so strong, and also to call the strengths of others to the surface. Everyone seems to be more capable when she's around. Don't know how she does it, but her effect is a reliable part of her contribution. Short conversations lead to big movement!

Testimonials on Readings

My reading with Tobey was filled with so much love and special attention for me. Her beautiful handmade deck sings of her mastery and power. I loved the way she wove storytelling, imagery and intuition into everything she said. I felt honored and seen; the cards and Tobey created a beautiful experience just for me. It brings tears to my eyes to remember how empowered I felt and how that empowerment lingered long after the reading.

Lori Wells, Artist


I received a Whiteheart Card Reading from Tobey and found it to be one of the most informative readings I have ever enjoyed. The cards are Tobey's own creation, making them a perfect representation of her gifts, which are quite notable. She has a gentle intuition about her and a spontaneous type of reading, which to me means Tobey is not just going by the meanings of the cards; she is also tuned into the client.  Giving her a recommendation was definitely an easy choice!
