Clients develop enhanced skill sets through education and coaching tailored to address specific challenges. Tracy says:

“Having the opportunity to build collaborative relationships is a great example of how Glom Initiatives is Expansive. Our business philosophy is anchored in empowering, inspiring and encouraging individuals, entrepreneurs and executives as they move toward achieving their goals. We do this in part by increasing awareness of psychology and skill building through education.

Being a part of Expansive has afforded an overlap of Glom’s mission with those of others in the space who share a desire to uplift and strengthen local business and individuals in the community through increased financial independence, more thriving, as well as improved overall wellbeing.

Glom has expanded its reach by working with local non-profit organizations and is founding a new business network. While countless corporations are retracting from commercial office space and shifting more and more to at-home or hybrid work models, the void that has been created is being filled by progressive styles of work production, business and commerce. Innovation is key to progress; we are fortunate to have the ability to converge in this space to truly drive forward momentum that capitalizes on this especially unique and historic moment in time.”
