I have been in business for over 30 years and have worked with numerous business coaches. Dietrich Willke is by far the best coach I have worked with.
I began working with Dietrich at a low point in my business, emotional and spiritual life. He has guided and inspired me to improve in so many areas of my life. He understands that a person cannot experience significant changes in their business unless there is health and balance in all significant areas of life.
He helped me understand myself and what motivates specific behaviors. He is teaching me how to face life-long fears that have held me back and walk through them, instead of staying stuck in them. I have learned that feeling uncomfortable is necessary and failure is a normal occurrence when learning something new.
He was patient with me when I had to learn lessons in real time and did not give up on me when I wanted to give up.
He taught me how to change my self-talk. I am becoming a better person at both work and home. I am getting back in touch with my authentic self.
He has helped walk me through finding a company to work for that matches my values and motivates me.
Of course, we have worked on the activities that need to occur to have a successful business. The numbers at work have been just as outstanding as my personal growth. I have doubled my income in the first 12 months of working with him. He is helping me build my business to be a sustainable income producing venture.
It has not been the easiest, but it has been one of the most rewarding adventures.
If you are teachable, honest with yourself and willing to do the work, your business, your relationships, and your life will improve immensely by working with Dietrich Willke.
I highly recommend him.
