Client Accolades

Firstly, your homework of self evaluations were extremely useful,  they helped me to look inside myself and see that I lacked focus and time management. I constantly made up excuses as opposed to just "getting it done". That is something that you greatly assisted me with.

Secondly, my resume and cover letter have been fine tuned to a degree that I didn't think was possible. I am extremely confident when submitting a job application, and I have been successful with obtaining interviews.

The recommendation for books to buy and organizations to join were phenomenal; I whole heartedly believe that the literary instruction and FEW membership will have a positive change on my life and professional outlook.

Lastly, I only have one recommendation for you. Some of your students need tough love/coaching,  including myself. When you told me I should look into obtaining my series 6 and 63 I shunned the idea. At the time, I had tunnel vision - only thinking of how it would affect my current professional situation and not future endeavors. I respond better to sternness and inflexibility as opposed to just urging. I know that is one of my major flaws!

Thank you so much for all you have done and continue to do! I am glad you are a permanent fixture in my life!
