"The greatest improvement I've noticed in working with Julie is the change in approach to 'selling myself'. I am not a salesman, I hate sitting across from people thinking I need to sell them something. Now, I feel more confident that I am the prize. I realize the fit is more important and the push back actually pulls people in."
~ Mike Bugg, Saskatoon, Sask, Happy Coaching Client
