Beth is a fundraising powerhouse, and the West Virginia Mine Wars Museum is so glad to have her as a guide, showing us how to reach our greatest potential and fundraising goals! Our board and staff gain a lot from her teachings, approach to fundraising, and intent on building long and strong relationships.
When I started working with Beth a few years ago, I felt lost and confused about my calling. I was shifting from my corporate career into becoming a relationship coach and writer, while becoming a mom. I needed support in integrating my different sides, prioritizing my time well and finding meaning and acceptance in my path. Beth’s role in my life has been invaluable because she sees me in my total potential and is my greatest champion. When I speak with her, it’s like having a meeting with my higher self, a wise woman, a sister, a mentor and coach, all in one! After each of our sessions, I feel aligned, peaceful and confident in myself, and the pulse of my calling becomes even stronger. Through her empowerment coaching, I’ve attracted abundance and amazing opportunities, have improved all my relationships and have grown on every level--spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. I see Beth as an integral part of my team. I would recommend anyone who is interested in discovering and pursuing their soul’s mission to work with Beth; she will support you in leading a beautiful, meaningful life!
Beth Raps is a masterful coach. Her work is rigorous and deeply engaging. When I work with her, I know that she will help me explore who I am and what I care about passionately. I know that our discussions with be deep and life-affirming, that I will feel more fully alive than I did when we began, and that she will work patiently with me to determine how I can take action on what matters most to me.
THANK YOU for EVERYTHING. I have enjoyed working with you and learning from you over the past few months. Your guidance and the space you hold for me to articulate and process where I'm at and what I'm looking ahead towards--it's really helping me. Thank you.
What I was very grateful for in working with you is your ability to attune into other people's being and how they present themselves.You just have this honing device to get straight to the truth, to what wants to be acknowledged and what wants to be expanded upon. In our first conversation for the Claim Your Calling program, I felt that you saw exactly where I needed to go and that you had the pathway for me to do that.
Participating in a group of Beth's altered the fundaments of my workings with reality. They shifted slowly and visibly toward a living, breathing dynamic of co-creation with all of nature--a higher intelligence. This is a total, fundamental shift, on a subtle and powerful level. Bringing wonder and awe back into my life. Profoundly appreciative, magical, and surprisingly simple.
Beth Raps is one of the best listeners you will ever meet. Because she listens carefully, she may better understand than you do what you and your organization want. I do not advise working with Beth if you do not want to work hard. Beth will do everything she says she’ll do and expect the same of you. She will guide you through a process of clarification which will give you and your group a clear goal and empower you to achieve it for yourself. Beth will be indispensable for only a short time in your organization’s evolution; then she will be unnecessary. Beth is also an extraordinary fundraiser. “Extraordinary” in the sense that, for Beth, the money is a means to an end. She will help you define your end and determine how best to reach it. Again, be prepared to do the work. Beth can teach you how to be a successful fundraiser, but your passion for your project will be what brings the funds to achieve it.
I have worked with dozens of fundraisers. The really good ones use their experience and insights to help guide you to your goals. Beth goes beyond this and metaphorically stands on your shoulders to see the imaginative approach that you can’t quite visualize without her. She is neither a magician or a miracle worker, but often it is hard to tell why not. She does more in a billed hour than any consultant I have ever worked with.
Beth helped me to connect with my relationship with money in a very deep and profound way. She was patient with me and laser-focused on addressing my needs in a practical way, while at the same time looking at the underlying big questions. Her work touched me profoundly and I credit Beth with helping me to turn things around in my personal and professional practice/s. I appreciate Beth’s depth and passion and would recommend her to anyone who is ready to make the commitment and leap necessary to invest in themselves.
