I'm really grateful for the support that I've gotten from you over the last year and the fact that our journey started with a 6-month commitment and has continued on for over a year, really says volumes about how much you've helped me. I needed a guide, and you helped me figure out where to start and to stay on track with the major transformational work I was undertaking. You helped to keep me accountable for what I was committing to doing. And in making that shift from one sector to another, the impostor syndrome was pretty significant, and you gave me a lot more confidence to achieve my goal.
