"Our company employed Steve Smith with Growth Source Coaching earlier this year and we have been utterly amazed by the effects it has had on our business. Steve has taken our company from a start-up to a flourishing business in a matter of months. Week after week, we are impressed by his ability to push us forward and help us achieve our business goals. We never thought we would be where we are at now, and no doubt it is because of Steve’s expertise in his field.
As a husband and wife team, Steve has delicately managed and advised us in a manner that creates harmony in our relationship, meanwhile giving us the tools to grow rapidly and in an structured fashion.
Steve’s coaching program is absolutely incredible and we would recommend Growth Source Coaching to any business, whether they are a start-up or established and just need to set new goals for advancement. Thank you Steve for everything you have done for us. The future is bright!"

"In 3 short months of working together, Steve has coached and mentored me to become a better leader, and focus my time on the high impact and high revenue generating activities that I must do to grow the business.
We are now in the process of developing a disciplined sales process, and it has already generated more qualified leads than we have had in 12 months. We have converted 2 prospects that represent a 10% increase in sales. We also have several solid prospects, which when converted will represent at least another 60% increase in sales. We anticipate converting these customers within the next 3 months.
Steve is an experienced- results driven coach that has become a valuable part of my business and personal development in a very short period of time. He has helped me focus my time on the most critical aspects of our business for growth, and has helped me become a better leader for our team. With only 3 months of work together, I know the next 9 months will show even stronger results than we have already experienced."
