    Hi, Ernest! Just tried to call you back - but got VM so thought I'd follow-up this way. I just finished the last few points of our discussion about joining my new company and verbally agreed to a start date of January 5th. This will be an exciting and lucrative endeavor, and I thank you once again for your contribution to this!

  • November 21, 2010
    Ernest: So good to hear from you. Things are going well. I am very busy reconnecting with old friends and I have been able to visit with a lot of former clients. The economy is kind of tough on everyone but we need to hug our clients when it's raining so we can dance with them when the sun comes out. I am averaging 12 appointments a week and many times more than that. I have put into practice all that I learned from working with you.

  • November 19, 2010

  • November 19, 2010
    Ernest,
    Thank you very much for the conversation this morning. It was very honest and straight forward. That is what I appreciate the most. I can see now why the Executive Director of CHPA recommended I reach out to you and spoke so highly of you and PowerHour. I look forward to working with you over the next few weeks and develop a long-lasting business relationship.

    Dear Ernest,
    I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn® professional networking services users.
    Ernest and the recruiting arm of PowerHour have been an excellent partner in our recruiting of top sales talent. I have found Ernest to be extremely gifted in his ability to go deep enough with candidates in the interviewing process where you are sure to find out whether a candidate is the right match. Ernest has been a pleasure to work with and we have been extremely impressed with his approach, consultation and results.

    I just wanted tell you that you and I are very similar in our sales processes and views. It was refreshing to hear the old-school, "do what is necessary to get the business" laid out so enthusiastically. Great PowerHour call, I enjoyed it thoroughly.

  • October 4, 2010
    Hi Ernest,
    Thank you for your time today to discuss our website, newsletter and client satisfaction survey.
    Hearing your opinions and suggestions was both rewarding (being told what we are doing well) and enlightening (learning how we can do things even better). During my ten years with my company, I have watched our company grow from a registered business number to the largest and most successful firm in Toronto. As we celebrate our tenth anniversary, I am so proud to hear your positive feedback and excited to implement the changes that will continue to grow our business.
    Thanks again for your valuable time and insight. I look forward to your next PowerHour session!

  • October 2, 2010
    Ernest -
    I had breakfast this morning with the company President that you referred me to… and I felt it went very well. They've got a great product with a solid revenue stream that should allow for rapid expansion. He's setting up a breakfast for me with his Marketing VP in the next ten days to discuss a possible consulting arrangement. I can never thank you enough for all of the wonderful help you've given me. Hope I can return the favor soon.
    P.P.

    I want to thank you so much for all of the help you gave me during my job search. This is the position that you spoke to Mr. Peter Quirk about on my behalf. This is where I need to be.
    Thanks again and please stay in touch.
    Gratefully,

    R.G.

  • September 19, 2010
    Good afternoon Ernest,
    Wow! Ernest you were absolutely amazing! You have an incredible insight into not only this industry but business and human nature!
    During your presentation you made reference to additional pieces of information that were available such as how to do a client satisfaction survey and an article on how to read a resume. I would love to see both of these as I will be looking for a new team member in the near future and we are going to implementing the client satisfaction survey. Excellent suggestions! Thank you one again.
    M.W.

  • September 18, 2010
    Hello Ernest,
    Great session today! Thanks for all your wonderful suggestions and insight. I was very impressed to hear that you took the time to visit all of our websites (at 3:00 a.m. no less)!
    If it's not too bold of me to ask, I would be very interested to hear your comments regarding our website, newsletter and feedback form.
    E.C.

Thanks you for your gift of time and knowledge.
    M.P.

  • September 3, 2010
    Ernest,
    It was great talking to you today. It seems like yesterday when we had lunch and ran in California. I'm so happy you're doing well although that is no surprise to me. You're the master and I personally have learned so much from you.
    Keep that helicopter up!
    S.S.

  • September 3, 2010
    Hi Ernest,
    Thank you for your quick turnaround and review of your financial budgets plus sales compensation.
    Your feedback is so beneficial and is right on the money.

  • August 29, 2010
    Hello Ernest,
    Our coaching call today was VERY helpful. That was the most powerful hour I have spent in the last few months of training. I went home and generated 40 pages of leads in New York City. I start calling Tuesday morning. I will spend this weekend creating a newsletter and telephone script. I will purchase your book, SmartMatch Alliances, today. Thank you for making a powerful difference in my life and business!
    S.S.

  • August 15, 2010
    Jim,
    Thank you so much for getting us together with Ernest. I set up a telephone call and my VP of Sales walked into my office and Ernest said to ask him to pick up which he did and then was part of the conversation. I had about five minutes to give Ernest some background. Ernest sounds too good to be true. I feel like I hit gold with you and him. Any more hidden treasures?
    J.M.

  • August 15, 2010
    Dear Dad,
    Like you, Ernest is a very positive person who runs a successful coaching and training firm. He brought us the small management firm we purchased in California last year and put the deal together for our venture in Arizona. He's a very good guy!
    Love,
    K.K.

  • August 13, 2010
    I do realize and appreciate the tremendous power of alliances [after reading your book, SmartMatch Alliances] and contacts you bring to the table. I looked up the website you sent me to and I now have a glimpse in my imagination, of the potential global alliances you are thinking about.
    As usual, you come through with the best information, alliances, relationships AND the more I understand or know the more I can appreciate the value you bring. Thank you seems to be an understatement and cliché but THANK YOU.
    R.B.

  • August 13, 2010
    OMG!!! Your power negotiation skills? The conference call we had with you this morning? It works!!! Two of my client meetings today agreed to expand their spending with me and four are prepaying tomorrow and this was all done within 15 minutes! And I used your advice not to pause at any time during the negotiations. It works and it's easy! Present, ask for more than you expect and don't pause.
    Thanks for your help!
    R.S.

  • August 12, 2010
    Ernest,
    Thanks for tonight's coaching call. I feel you have given me some fantastic tools and tips, and I have lots to work with to prep for winning this job.

    Thanks for all your direction, humor, patience, thoughtfulness, and passion

    Ernest,
    That you so much for remembering my birthday. As I age, birthdays seem to become more meaningful and I look forward to the chapters of my life unfolding before me. My husband and I just returned from Machu Picchu and I am so grateful to God for his blessings of good health, the splendor of the world he created and the man I share my life with.
    Congratulations on your long-standing success as a coach and mentor. You have touched so many lives in countless ways and I especially appreciate your guidance and wisdom.
    L.B.

    I got your voicemail. Ernest, THANK YOU for being such an incredible support and friend during my career search.
    H.H.

  • June 9, 2010
    Thanks Ernest - You are always so kind to remember my birthday.
    All is well in Texas. I love my new job and I am working with a variety of individuals and I have a very qualified and competent staff. It's hard to believe it has been ten years since you helped me sell my business.
    Hope you know, you are a big reason I was able to position and sell my company. If I can EVER do anything for you, don't hesitate to ask.
    C.M.

  • May 9, 2010
    Ernest,
    Good morning. You would be amazed (or maybe not?) at how often I talk about you. Your work with me really was life-changing.
    R.G.

  • April 15, 2010
    Hello Ernest! Great to hear from you!
    Regarding the compensation plan...upon roll out, our VP loved the plan and the other RM's loved the plan. However, the account reps were not thrilled to say the least...that is, until they received their first bonus on the new plan! All account representatives did better on the new compensation plan than on the previous plan. In addition, once we were able to work through the bonus numbers with them on their actual sales results, they realized the impact it would make on their bonuses if they pushed the profit margins just a little. We were excited to see this favorable result. As you know, our associate satisfaction is very important to us. As far as an increase to the bottom line, it is too early to see the results of this as last month was the first month on the new compensation plan. However, it's pretty obvious which way that will go!
    We are very pleased with your services and results! Thank you Ernest!
    M.R.

  • April 2, 2010
    Hi Ernest!
    You truly are…rock star solid!
    Thank you so very much for making time to chat with my friend…at the very last minute. I know she found it very beneficial and was very excited about the potential, both with her biz and coaching opportunities.
    Thank you again,
    You ROCK!
    D.C.

  • April 1, 2010
    Oh my gosh! I'm so pumped! I want to be realistic, as this is just the beginning...but I feel so empowered! I'm ever so grateful to Dawn that she knows you. I really want to see successes in 2010...and need to, for that matter.
    Thanks for everything (so far)! I'll do my best to have revisions to you by early afternoon.
    You're the best!
    J.K

  • April 1, 2010
    You are truly fabulous Ernest! Thank you so much.

  • April 1, 2010
    Hi:
    I truly enjoyed the "bring your most challenging objections" call and look forward to more training. I've been selling for six years now and I did not realize that selling successfully is such a science. Thank you for your continued input to my education.
    H.M.

  • April 1, 2010
    I always learn so much from your leadership seminars, and this one in particular was just what I needed. I've already put some of your suggestions into use and seen great results! Thanks so much for these. I always feel invigorated after them.

  • February 19, 2010
    Hi Ernest,
    Thank you for another great sales meeting. Your knowledge and support is very motivating.
    As a result of your meeting…this morning our web sales are incredible - two platinum packages were sold, one custom package has been sold and we are waiting on four more signature on sold deal to come later today.
    I can hear your train whistle blowing.
    C.C.

  • February 4, 2010
    Hi Ernest,
    Here is a quick update on the sales contest you helped us build.
    Last year in January 2007 we sold $171,438.
    This year in January 2010 we sold $258,580.
    This is an increase of $87,141!!! This is a 51 percent increase over last year!!
    Thanks for all of your help…it's greatly appreciated.
    M.S.

  • January 30, 2010
    Team...your success over the last 12 months---has created revenue growth of 78 percent! Wow!
    This is superb...and is the kind of growth only seen by the top one percent of companies in our industry/sector--in the world!
    I am proud of each of you! And Ernest…thanks for your coaching to help our team reach this kind of success!
    B.D.

  • January 29, 2010
    Your coaching and training was remarkably helpful! I am brand new to this field and was a bit overwhelmed. Your conference call really helped with that overwhelmed feeling. I now have my "prospects" in ABC order and instead of looking at a list with 80 contacts, I now have three lists and can feel much more focused.
    Yesterday I made sales calls and sent Emails and kept your advice in mind while I was doing it. I had a 50 percent return on my Emails AND I had 50 percent of those returns become a sale. Much better odds than I imagined. I am sure most of this is due to the
    confidence I was able to relay in my messages…thanks to your coaching.
    THANK YOU, I don't think I would have had the confidence OR the know-how to just jump in like that. You gave me both, and I appreciate it.
    A.A.

  • January 21, 2010
    I will definitely be implementing your coaching steps and strategies. Thank you again for your support and brilliance!
    C.P.

  • January 21, 2010
    Yes it will be an awesome 2010 - and thanks for helping us grow!
    B.B.

  • January 15, 2010
    Ernest:
    This was the last thing that I thought would happen to me ever in my life not to mention when I started with working with you. I appreciate your note and appreciate you standing by me while I am taking this difficult journey. You could have easily tossed me to the side and concentrated on clients that have it all together. You did not. You stood by me and your words and insight were inspiring and invaluable. Thanks for allowing me to lean on you. I believe I am a better person for going through this even though I am still unsure of the reasons.
    Thanks for everything. I will forever be in your debt.
    B.B.

  • January 10, 2010
    Hello my friend!
    I hope you're doing well. We have almost wrapped up our meeting regarding the roll out of the new bonus program. So far…a HIT!!!
    Thank you so much, I will be in touch!|
    Happy New Year!
    M.R.

  • January 8, 2010
    Ernest…I reached my goal! I am writing six columns a year for an industry magazine---and getting the industry visibility that I have always wanted.
    Thanks for your wonderful guidance. We're living the dream...and I hope you take joy in having led us on the journey.
    D.H.

  • January 8, 2010
