"Justin and I worked together for several months while he coached me in the skills of sales and marketing for my interior design business. I was extremely impressed with his professionalism and ability to quickly evaluate the core of my problem areas. His well thought-out,direct and honest manner of communication modeled an approach that I use today with my own clients. The experience was invaluable."
