When I meet Dennis I was really fed-up with being lost. I was ready to make some changes in my life.

Back in March 2015 I was corporate downsized from a job that I hated. It marked the seventh time in my career that I’d experienced layoffs or corporate re-structuring. The experience sorta broke me. I lost my Santa Monica apartment and had to move-in with a friend for a year.

By the time I meet Dennis in February 2018, I had a new job but was still living paycheck-to-paycheck and renting a room in someone’s house. My confidence was completely gone and I was 40lbs over-weight.

Dennis worked with me to re-shape my outlook and ways of thinking. We put a strategy in-place to help me get ahead at work. And he put in-place daily disciplines that would form healthier habits.

It has only been 9 months (or so) and already I have my own apartment to myself again, am hitting the gym each week, and recently achieved a major promotion at work to be named Associate Director of Digital Marketing.

But the best part of the Man-Up! Life Coaching program is the renewed confidence I have today. I see the progress that I’ve made and realize that I can get anything done that I want. If I’ve come this far in less-than my first year of the program, I can not wait to see what I can accomplish next year!
