Review: I was lucky enough to be in the audience a couple weeks ago when you spoke at my company. I wanted to tell you how fantastic it was. At one point my heart was racing, hands were shaking and palms were sweating. I’ve never felt more motivated. Thank you!

Hart Keeble

Review: Almost three weeks since you spoke to us at the IMPACT Conference and I still have a fire in my belly! My performance has improved at work and I have defined my role in a way to lead and not micromanage. My own accountability is priority one. Thanks again!
