Growing Beyond Success Logo

Thank you Dan for always believing in me and being there. Glad you flew halfway across the globe to coach me on what it takes to be a truly world class leader. I never met someone who truly listened, shared unique perspective yet limited to allow me to grow on my own. I am still practicing and with you being my inspiration. No doubt anyone being coached by you will excel sustainably.

When Tiger Woods reached the top of the amateur world, he worked with his Coach to reinvent his swing so he could conquer the pros. Once he was the top professional, he did it again so he could stay at the top of the game.
