She also offered to talk me through the process if I had problems. Website worked. Filled out forms in 25 minutes and electronically filed for incorporation. Received approval in 5 days. It’s obvious to me that Pam knows how to help business people. Next time I have an issue with my business, I’m going to Pam first. " - Harry P; The Cranefeather Society
"Pam did a great job this morning presenting to our Network Group. I'm sure it was really hard to cram the concept into the short amount of time you had, but you did a good job of pointing out the differences between Problem Solving and Coaching.

It helps eliminate wasted "windshield" time and challenges the need to spend time on the things you are doing. Her approach is to listen, observe and to say the things you may not want to hear but you realize are important for the business." - Jake Karakosh - Cartridge World Altamonte Springs

Always ask open-ended questions to get the other person to reveal the nuggets of information." - Seminole County Chamber - River Council
"I was having a really bad week, and Pam picked up on that while we were walking to our cars after a meeting. She asked me some very good questions to get me to open up, and then provided two tips to try. That was ONE week ago and already I've made sales with two key prospects!
I also learned from one of her networking sessions that I should always have a goal for the number of new people I want to meet. Put that # of business cards in my hand plus one so I can keep track of where I am to goal at the networking event. I've exceeded goal every time!! " - Kim - Sam's Club
