I am glad to hear that you continue to do well. I too am having
a banner year, with revenues up about 40% from last year. I
am also earning around 50% more than I did during my corporate
years, while working fewer hours, spending more time on the
work I want to do, and most importantly more time with my family.
Thanks for teaching me "how to fish", and not just
giving me the fish (as the old saying goes).

I have known Craig, your VP of Recruiting, for over a year and
a half now. He has been an excellent source of inspiration and
confidence in this tough employment market. He did an impeccable
job of outlining my skills and expertise and presented it to
a variety of employers. Through his efforts I was able to find
the job I was looking for, which included not only the pay I
was looking for, but also represented the culture and environment
PowerHour is a say what they do, and do what they say, organization.
I have recommended many of my industry friends and colleagues
to your service and all of them of left satisfied and employed.
Craig is an energetic and hard working person with only his

Ernest worked with me during my senior year of college as a
career coach. He is committed, reliable, and trustworthy. Ernest
always looked out for my best interests and was dedicated to
teaching me how to network and make lasting connections and
choices as I navigated my first job search out of college. Because
of Ernest, I was able to meet some incredible contacts who have
since become mentors and friends. I cannot thank Ernest enough
for his help over the years-- both as a coach and friend.

PHC just launched their brand new website and Sarah and I were
sitting around the other day discussing our phone conversation
with you all those years ago. You encouraged us to get an E-mail
newsletter which we have done to great success. We are up to
over 11,000 recipients! And the website looks great---thanks
to all of your SEO advice and coaching.
All of this is due, in great part, to you encouraging us to
do it and reap the benefits. It now would seem impossible to
spread our news any other way. So, thanks very much for the
good advice all those years ago.

I've spoken to Ernest a couple of times on the phone and he
can give you an amazing amount of advice in the shortest amount
of time I have ever seen. He is very knowledgeable in his field
and definitely a great guy to know.
- January 4, 2012
Ernest - the Coach - has been a joy and a pleasure to work with
because of his genuine concern for me, my family and each individual
that he comes in contact with. There has been no one that I
personally know that is more generous with time, energy and
great/fresh new ideas for business success. This generous spirit
extends to those in his company and also to the vendors, partners
and associates outside the scope of PowerHour.
His knowledge of corporate housing, property management, and
publishing is unmatched. He is THE expert in these business
sectors and will aid any business in establishing the best business
practices so they can grow their business and reach their potential.
The bottom line is this - if you have the opportunity to work
with or be coached by Ernest,
TAKE IT! You will not be disappointed. Everyone that he touches
is left better than he found them.
