Michael and Candice Dawkins

Thank you for providing Kandaree and myself with the excellent coaching sessions to assist us in getting our footing with the Career Direct Living by Design consulting business. This is our first attempt at self-employment and operating a business. We have found there are many hurdles, obstacles and nuances to starting a business. We were fortunate that God sent you our way to help us get our bearing. You have proven to be a great listener and your analytical skills allowed you to provide us with great feedback and strategies for moving forward in the business. We have realized several takeaways from our coaching session, but the one that stands out is the fact that you told us to ensure we had a mission statement and vision for the business. You expressed that we should “begin with the end in mind”. You also advised us to break the tasks down into smaller and manageable parts and to determine who was going to work on what and when. You encouraged us as a couple to frequently share our thoughts and ideas about the business and establish realistic goals while holding each other accountable. While we know that nothing ventured is nothing gained and this will not be an overnight process. Because of your efforts, we now have a clearer vision and path for our direction. Most of all, we know this will be a faith walk. Thank you for your patience, encouragement and willingness to share your great wealth of knowledge with others. You have all the skills necessary for a great coach!!!
