Dear Cheryl, 'Thank you’ just doesn’t seem adequate enough to convey how much I appreciate the coaching I received from you this year. Since engaging with you in January, my performance and my business have literally turned a corner and I am well on my way to exceeding my own expectations. Last month I doubled my estimated sales and new business for the month and I am well on my way to meeting that goal again this month. After our first session, I had no doubts that hiring you was one of the best investments I made for myself and my company and I appreciate the valuable contribution you have made in my life. I know you will say it was my dedication and hard work that got me there, but you were a KEY part of my success and I will forever be grateful to you. It was such a great pleasure working with you and I will miss working together on a regular basis. I will most definitely be referring you to people in need of your services. You are so great at what you do and such a pleasure to be around. Warm regardsJZR, President, Accounting Firm
