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

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

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.

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

business success. This generous spirit extends to those in his company
and also to the vendors, partners and associates outside the scope of
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.
