Thank you so much for your time and guidance. Our conversations were very informative, inspiring and even comforting.

Your advice and suggestions helped me feel more confident and assured that I can figure out this next personal journey. I'll keep you posted!" —Kelly

You were so instrumental in helping me realize my potential and what I actually am capable of. You reminded me of my value. That's priceless. Working with you was money well spent. You will be getting a five star review on Yelp very shortly!" —Luciana

Doing the success stories helped me to gain greater confidence just by the very activity of focusing on what I do well. It's easy to get lost in the details of how much there is to learn and in the contrast between myself and a seasoned practitioner. So thanks again for all of your help. I will continue to stay in touch and seek your assistance as needed." —Amy

As I've taken my resume out over the last year and added more and more publishing credits to it, I can't help but be reminded of you and all the help you gave me on that document three years ago.

I wanted to let you know you totally inspired me. After you told me your story about starting a new career, I felt as if there was hope for me outside the title industry. You are a truly sincere and very smart man. If I had never met you, I would still be thinking inside my cubicle." —Bree

I thought you might find it interesting that the LinkedIn and the planned happenstance strategy ended up being pretty useful. The ENTP article also inspired me to start taking acting classes. One of the stories was of an entrepreneur who planned to be a character actor. I never thought I cold have more than one career. It turns out I've got a decent presence and am having tons of fun in class. I appreciate all the help you gave me and I will definitely keep in touch." —Brett

Thank you for the great advice on my resume. I think the outline for the cover letter is excellent and I will put it to good use. Fantastic tool!" —Heidi
