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 to be honest, I did not want to have our call yesterday. I
was not performing as I should and felt overwhelmed by my procrastinating
on some of the critical things that needed to be done.
Your call helped get me focused again and more energized. Thanks for

both of my critical tasks last night---and my financial information
is now ready for the bank.

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 I desired.
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 client's goals in
mind. I will continue to recommend his services to anyone I know on
the job hunt or looking for a new opportunity.

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.

practices and creatively thinks through and helps resolve management

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, 2010
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.
