“My Clarifi coach provided me a sounding board to help get my personal life under control and we worked on small steps so I can see accomplishments every month. He provided me guidance without judgment and held me accountable on the goals I set for myself. My coach and I continue to be in contact even after the program because I value his insight and guidance as I now make bigger steps in my business. This was truly a blessing at just the right time in my life.”
