I met Ben Stone during the summer of 2009 when I was deep in the grips of being unemployed. Ben is a “recovering HR recruiter” who has helped me with technical issues and offered up website development tips and tricks. He also gives back to the community on a continuous basis.
I started attending Central Iowa Bloggers last summer and am so glad I did. Mike Sansone is the unofficial leader of the group and has given me the support and insight I’ve needed to move my business forward. Starting something new is always difficult, but he instilled in me the mindset of being a “Free Agent” and I’ve never been able to look back.
John Stein is one of those soft-spoken intellectuals whose wheels are always turning. He gave me the guidance I needed to take my business to the next level and continues to monitor my progress using his subtle coaching techniques. He specializes in “extracting your natural genius” at Stein’s Way.
I recently graduated from Jeff Garrison‘s 12-Week Sales Habitudes Practice Group. I use what I’ve learned at every networking event and prospect/client interaction. My interactions in business are much more intentional and calculated and this is helping my business to grow.
Who are your mentors? Do you have a personal board of directors who you meet with on a regular basis for guidance?
