Running a successful business goes hand in hand with leading a successful life. Keith Speers is a strategist and coach who does an amazingly good job of helping entrepreneurs (like me) uncover the life and business obstacles and opportunities to help grow a business. Part cheerleader, part tough guy, Keith is a bundle of energy, wisdom and tactical recommendations. I've been working with Keith less than a year and have already seen a 25% growth in my business, am less stressed and feel more confident about my next steps.
