Have you ever wondered how you could make things in life and business go much more smoothly and easily? Alison Nissen and Marcy Stoudt discovered that by joining forces in building their coaching business, Revel Coach, and in supporting each other in their individual efforts as well, they were making faster progress and having way more fun.

In this three-way conversation, you’re going to hear how the fact that Alison and Marcy are sisters has been the launching point for the supportive and fun atmosphere they promote inside Revel Coach. “Maybe I could” is the driving principle behind their company because they know that with the support of like-minded women, anything is possible. ​​Revel Coach mentors women as they build a framework for their next steps in their career, volunteerism, or public service.

Alison and Marcy grew up in Shillington, Pennsylvania in a home nicknamed Camp Brown. They both graduated from Denison University.

​Between the two of them, they’ve lived in 14 cities, 10 states, and 4 countries. They have 7 kids ranging in age from 28 and 12 and have experienced, first hand, the generosity of friends and family while experiencing complications of motherhood, military deployments, and devastating diseases of Alzheimer's, Lou Gehrig's, and cancer.

​They've answered the question "what do you do" with titles ranging from receptionist to vice-president, author, troop leader, and professor. But by far, their favorite shared title is Mom, regardless of location and working status. They know “It’s better together.”
