I am fortunate and blessed to have the support of many contractor clients in my first year as a contractor coach. I recently received a letter from a client describing his satisfaction with our coaching services and relationship. It describes what The Contractor Coaching Partnership means to him.

I am writing this letter to thank you for the services and guidance you have provided to me over the course of the past year. Your expertise and knowledge in the field of Design-Build remodeling and construction has been invaluable to me.
Your well-rounded approach to coaching is exactly what I had been seeking to help me navigate the early stages of developing my business and surviving challenging economic times. Being "chief cook and bottle washer" for my business, it is critical to get proper guidance in many areas, including sales, production, marketing, and establishing the systems and processes necessary to run a profitable business. You have been able to provide this for me, in a personal one to one format, which is extremely beneficial and far superior to impersonal over the phone coaching offered by many other business coaches.
I would also like to express appreciation for not only coaching me on the "nuts and bolts" of the business, but also helping me to maintain the proper mindset and vision on a personal level that is so critical to success in any endeavor.
Your large sphere of influence and strong network of associates has also proven extremely beneficial to me, as evidenced by more than $350,000 of new work that you have referred to Barnes Building & Remodeling this year alone. Thank you once again for supporting my business and having the confidence and faith in our abilities to properly service our clients. For any business owner or professional in the construction industry looking to position themselves for growth and profitability, I would highly recommend your services to assist them in achieving their goals. I personally feel that a strong coaching / mentor relationship is a key ingredient to achieving success.
Please feel free to use me as a reference in the future for any of your potential clients. I wish you the best of luck in growing your business and I look forward to continuing our relationship in the coming years.
Owner, Barnes Building & Remodeling
