2012

  • December 15, 2012
    Ernest,
    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).
    M.S.

  • December 8, 2012
    Thanks Ernest.
    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 your honest approach to coaching. As a result of our call.I completed both of my critical tasks last night---and my financial information is now ready for the bank.
    J.C.

    Ernest
    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.

  • November 9, 2012
    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.

    Hi Ernest,
    Yes, I very much enjoyed your PowerHour coaching program - so much so that I ordered your SmartMatch Alliance book and journal. Being new to this industry, I don't yet have my sea
    legs. However I am VERY interested in better incorporating side-by side sales comparisons into my presentations and learning to be more exact and precise when doing so. I am trying to soak up as much knowledge about this fascinating industry as possible!
    Thanks so much for your help! I look forward to attending future PowerHour sessions!
    Best regards,
    L.G.

    Ernest did a great job working with my wife's company; before I even knew him, and he was so good I hired him to consult with me on mine too. He's remarkably knowledgeable about great, inventive business practices and creatively thinks through and helps resolve management issues and business-building problems. Ernest has a great personality, is always upbeat and very insightful. I highly recommend him for much more than just a great coaching experience. If you want business help from the best, frankly, he's it."

I spend a good amount of time trying to learn and share best practices, so I appreciate the fact that you're an advocate for the cause. A lot is cooking as we approach the summer months and I hope I can find the time to continue following the group. Be well.

  • March 30, 2012
    Ernest,
    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.
    T.M.

  • March 29, 2012
    Hi Ernest,
    I have recently joined the company and have thoroughly enjoyed the knowledge you share on a continual basis. I listened in on the PowerHour call last Wednesday and from it, gained valuable knowledge that I am able to implement into my work. So for that, THANK YOU!!
    Again, thank you so much for all of your wonderful tools that are helping me grow and enjoy continued success.
    S.H.

    R.K.


  • March 4, 2012
    Ernest
    I just wanted to drop you a quick note with an update.
    Your SEO program to optimize our website has worked and I am truly impressed. We are receiving daily telephone calls, we are appearing in Internet searches and most importantly we are making money from new clients! As you know this was not happening just a few months ago.
    I cannot begin to tell you how much you have taught us in the past several months.
    Thanks for your help.
    G.S.

  • March 4, 2012

    If I've not mentioned this in a while, I just want to thank you for all the "extras" you
    provide (correspondence.an additional call from time to time and constant communication) to me/our team.in our work together.
    Your support, care and great coaching are just the right gentle.to move someone like me who is self motivated/driven to the next level.
    You have a great read on people Ernest.
    D.C.


  • February 26, 2012
    Ernest,
    I just wanted to write you a quick thank you for the call yesterday. I immediately have put into place something that I took from the coaching and training. I wouldn't have thought of the marketing angle/approach you suggested, and just wanted to let you know how valuable I find your calls/topics!
    P.C.

  • February 25, 2012
    Ernest
    Thanks for the review of my leadership assessment. It was great, thank you! I am still processing much of it, and know it will be a good source of understanding on many issues. I can see why you are so successful with your clients!

  • February 2, 2012
    I did find your PowerHour conference call today enlightening and educational. I was not able to stay on for the entire, but I did have an "Aha" moment and walked away with several great ideas to present to my sales team. I hope to begin implementing a better form of social media and take our message, website and service to a higher level in the near future.
    Thanks again for your time and information, always a pleasure to learn.

  • January 6, 2012
    Thank you Ernest. I would like to say again how much I value the PowerHour sessions with yourself and Jedd. I would be sooo behind if it wasn't for your guidance. There is so much of your philosophy that I have incorporated into my business.
    Much aloha and many mahalo's,
    M.E.


  • January 5, 2012
    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.
    D.F.

  • 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.
    R.S.
