“My coach provided an excellent source of advice and really pushed us to grow. It’s definitely not been easy with how busy we’ve been, but so very worthwhile. We’re feeling better than we’ve ever felt about the future of the business.”
“Our coach Ken has been the perfect fit and exactly what we were looking for. We needed a Business Adviser rather than a ‘Coach’. He’s offered us an independent and objective perspective on our business. He’s someone who helps us see the big picture and helped set out a road map to achieve our objectives. We are now incredibly excited about our business’s progression onto the next level. We would recommend an ICEHOUSE ‘coach’ to anyone.”
