Thank you, Alex! I am at a point in my career where I knew I would need a partner and coach to help guide me to my next steps. From the minute I met Alex, I felt the chemistry. Alex took the time to learn about me, my business, my industry, my family and all other aspects, as to get a full picture of who I was, where I was, and where I wanted to be.
Our sessions were well planned out, giving plenty of time to discuss the agreed upon topics, and to work through conversations, ideas and strategies. We applied a number of fundamentals and techniques to a variance of simple and complex problems to create a path to the best possible outcome. Alex was engaged 100% of the time, giving her undivided attention to me and my career journey.
In addition to focusing on my career in my current role, Alex took steps to help round out my leadership personna, focusing on civic duties. Alex's experience in the greater Baltimore region provides opportunities to network with various leadership groups focused on justice, race, equality, and the betterment of Baltimore and its surrounding areas. I look forward to the opportunities provided by Alex to grow my local network, and focus on local efforts that benefit the greater Baltimore population.
My work with Alex continues. We've completed the first stage of our partnership and I look forward to our next steps. Thanks for everything you've done to help me so far, and I can't wait to see what we accomplish next!

I had so much fun learning new things from you. Really appreciate the breakthrough during our conversation. I have been pitching the same to folks since then. I am grateful to you and looking forward to our future interactions.
Pursuit of my professional development after a decade long service to the United States Air Force led me to Alex for advice. As I have been looking for someone to guide me on how to leverage my military experiences and skill sets to help small businesses affected by COVID19 Pandemic. Her career is extensive and business leaders have so much to learn from her. My time was well spent with Alex; I was motivated by her courage to set a good example by doing what's difficult. Even with her busy schedule she took time out to speak with me over the phone and took the initiative to make the conversation energetic. Alex is a very patient person; she listened to all my concerns and goals. As she responded to my concerns she articulated what she understood. I say that because it is impressive to speak to someone who paid attention to the details during communications. At the end of our discussion I learned the same communication method for myself. It is difficult to practice active listening; but helped to see someone who does a good job at it. Along with learning and improving communication skills by mirroring I have also learned how to ask the right questions. She was willing to share knowledge right away and asked me questions to develop the bridges between my goals from earlier careers to future ambitions. Like a good mentor she empathized with how difficult it is at the beginning of all business startup. Thank you again; for all that you do for the veterans and businesses.
