I love it when clients succeed.
And I especially love it when former clients succeed... and they let me know about it.
Well, I didn't. So I told her that she ought to write one.
And you know what? She did.
She was also kind enough to write me -- if I can be permitted to brag -- a wonderful testimonial:
"I spent years dreaming about changing my career. I knew where I wanted to go and even knew how to get there, but every time I started to take those first steps, I just slipped right back into my comfort zone and gave up.
Jim helped me take those first steps.
When I tried to slip back into my old ways, he reminded me where I wanted to be. It didn't take long to realize my dreams. Once I got over the first hurdles, everything fell into place.
I was really impressed with the way coaching worked, it didn't turn out to be some life-long commitment. I had specific needs and goals which Jim helped me meet. As soon as the training wheels were off, I waved goodbye. Every once in a while though, I look back just to make sure he's still there. He is."
I am very flattered and very humbled. Janee is extremely kind to share her hard work and success with me.
I have always viewed my coaching as an investment.
An investment in the power of ideas. An investment in the power of people to make their ideas real.
Janee's article helps illustrate how important it is for us to invest as much in ourselves as we do in others.
It's money, time, and effort very well spent.
