Client Coaching Comments

Jeff, you do a great job and provide a wonderful service to people.    Ralph

Congrats on a decade of great work!    Terry

You certainly helped me sort things. My personal priorities and preferences that seem obvious now were not so obvious when I was in career transition. You contributed more to my progress through my transition process than any other person.   Joe


“I started with just me and one truck, working out of my garage. I now have four employees, and I am in a commercial space. The earnings potential is pretty well limitless at this point. I am busy. I do have to spend time away from my family just as I did before. But now, if I want to stay home and cook my kids breakfast, I can. On nice sunny days, if I want to cut out early to take the kids swimming, I do. I don’t just have weekends to choose from anymore.”

BRANDEN BOWDEN, New Business Owner
