I just wanted to drop a quick note to say thanks. Your investment in me and my leadership skills/success…has paid off multiple times.
You have been an amazing catapult in the journey to where I am now. I remember our first conversation in April of 2008. So in 3 1/2 years, I am now really truly where I want to be. I am making my dreams come true - and you planted a seed that is blooming into a giant redwood.

In seeking to revitalize my career, leadership and professional marketing program, you provided guidance, information, and suggestions that went well above and beyond what I anticipated.
Your follow through, unexpected follow-up phone calls, passion, enthusiasm, as well as your
desire to help others succeed is just amazing. You are absolutely a great person Ernest, as well as those on within your PowerHour organization - who are outstanding to work with as well. I highly endorse and recommend their work.
Ernest - you are one of the most knowledgeable people I have found in sorting out the inner workings of LinkedIn and some of its little known - but most important functions.

A defining experience for sure. Your experience and key coaching/learning points provided myself
and our corporate team with the exactly the right guidance we requested from you. You answered our questions, helped define our corporate training programs and showed us how to improve on previous strategies and approaches. In my position, you helped me to see some very key points for improvement and highlighted the importance of comprehensive inclusion of all roles within the company. Excellence was definitely a reoccurring theme, which permeated all of the materials and our discussions.

Ernest - you just such a person. In a few short weeks you took me from "questioning my direction" to "believing in my path"!
Now I know why your company is called PowerHour! Thank you, Ernest!"

I first became aware of Ernest around 15 years ago. My attention was grabbed by the very innovative PowerHour telephone coaching services he offered. He has since become one of the first members on LinkedIn, where his enthusiasm and ability to communicate flourishes as the moderator of several influential discussion groups within our industry. Ernest is personable, generous and completely professional. Certainly one of the most dynamic individuals I have ever met.

area of LinkedIn® professional networking services. Thanks once again for your time today!
