Hey guys, this is Richard Ashton. I'm a co-founder of Ford House in Charleston. Before I met Sam, me and my team, we didn't really know what we were doing. We were kind of shooting from the hip, honestly. And it wasn't until I met Sam, that I was able to actually realize what we really wanted to do with the company, as well as to really define what we were as a company, what we could do for people. That's because, going through the course, the way that Sam lays it out, is not only methodical, but, it's really in depth. It really explains what it is that consultants do, what it is that ... it is exactly to create a niche, and to really narrow down your market. Because, a lot of the things that he explains throughout his course and through his resources, was exactly what was happening to us. We didn't really have a specific niche. We didn't have specific brand or we didn't really know or how to define ourselves exactly, because we had no idea what we were doing. I know for a lot of you guys who are on the fence, you kind of come from the same place. So, that's really the reason why I would wholeheartedly recommend Sam, working with Sam because ... this is two months back when we were struggling. Now, we're an established company. We've got a huge foothold specifically in our market in Charleston, and we're doing big things. We went from a team of five to a team of ten now, strong. I'm not even actually local to the company more, I'm actually in Hawaii. My company is still doing well, and this is all thanks to Sam and his methods, and his formats, and the way that he gives ... the way that he coaches and he mentors to help people really define what it is they want to do in consulting, and how to get there specifically, step-by-step. That's one of the big things I want to harp on, it's not just that he gives all these resources, and he's a great mentor, or coach, whatever. It's the fact that through his courses, it's laid out so step-by-step, that anybody from any background, from any experience level can do it and become successful, only if you commit to it. We've seen so much increase from the time two months from when we started the program, to now. So, I can wholeheartedly recommend this to anybody. Good luck on whatever decision you make, and thanks for taking time to listen to this.
