Testimonials & Featured Clients

Mark, Texas

I used to live in a constant state of fear and insecurity. In my professional life I went into every meeting and conversation with the belief that I didn’t belong there. Even in my personal life I looked at every neighbor and family friend as more “successful” than me. I was referred to Lester by one of these neighbors, and we were 5 minutes into our first conversation when he said the word that nailed this feeling I had always carried – IMPOSTER. We worked together for close to a year, and by the end of that time I had tripled my production at work, saved my marriage, and am close to being the dad I’ve always wanted to be. All because I finally confronted the stories in my head that have held me back, and with his help created new ones that I can believe in.   

Jenni, New York

When I first started working with Lester I was a total mess – but didn’t know it yet. I wanted to change everything in my life, which is why I thought I needed a coach. When I first started with him I seriously thought I hated him. His questions were annoying. The way he challenged what I said was annoying. One day I realized it wasn’t Lester I hated, but myself. It felt like the flood gates had opened, and life made more sense. I now have a future I’ve designed that I’m excited about. I wake up each day knowing what has to be done to make the future possible. I now understand why he repeated the words clarity and process to me over and over, although back then I wanted to punch him in the face each time he said it. Lester is like the brother I never knew I needed, hated at times, but changed my life forever.

Tori, Arizona

Lester has gotten me mentally and emotionally reengaged with my professional world.  I have found purpose and vision and therefore focus and fulfilment in my day-to-day work and in my life.  He came into my life when I was so overwhelmed and unclear with myself and what I wanted out of my job and out of life that the only real, actionable thing I wanted to do was quit working and pursue other things.  What I found in my time with Lester is a way to make my job a part of my future plan – to help maximize my opportunity there and to have a real sense of joy and fulfilment from my time spent at work.  Had you asked me at the time when I first started engaging with Lester that would have been an outcome, I’d have considered that impossible.  I’ve begun to find the joy in pursuing a better version of myself.
