I hired Tony Elliott in 2019, but we really took it to the next level the beginning of 2020. This last year and a half have completely changed my life on not only how I view and run my business, but also personally. It has given me a confidence level in business that I didn't know was possible. The only regret I have is that I wish I would have started with Tony and his coaching years earlier! From now on, I will always have a coach who is also a strategic partner.
