Prior to me meeting Michael Bryant in June of 2012 I was not satisfied with my performance in the workplace and I felt the focus on my family needed to improve too.  I would have ranked my level of satisfaction at both work and home at a 4 on a scale of 1 to 10.  In as little as 8 months from that point I have made dramatic improvements in both of those areas of my life where I would rate myself as an 8.5 now.

Michael did a great job of working with my staff and I to gauge what our strengths and weaknesses are. Then he helped put systems in place to capitalize on what we are best at while not letting our weaknesses hold us back.  My business is up over 30%, I am getting more done in less time and I now leave the office earlier then before so I can spend more time with my wife and kids.  At the end of my work day, I feel better because of all we have accomplished and I don’t worry about work when I go home so I am more present when I am with my family.

Also, since my staff and I are more efficient and effective, we feel less stressed about all we have to do and our clients can feel there is a positive vibe in our office which is leading to better relationships and more referrals.  Working with Michael has exceeded my expectations and I am grateful for the time and energy he put into me, my business, and my family life.  The return on my investment with him has been huge and it has only been 8 months since we met.  I am very excited about the future because he has set me on a different path and I know it will only get better from here.  He has truly made a difference in my life.
