I have worked with Don for over two years. The wealth of knowledge and consistent support that he provides is invaluable. He helps me see things differently. Today, I think differently about myself, my business and my services than I did in the past. Because of his experience, he sees opportunities that are available, but not obvious. And he has this natural coaching style that helps me feel comfortable pursuing them. I have not only increased our business revenue by 40% but I have changed my mindset about what it really means to be a business owner.

We started a great working relationship with Don earlier this year. I have owned my own business for 25 years. If we had employed Don earlier, I would have had many more restful nights. Don starts with you and your company where you are. He masterfully assesses what is needed most to meet the goals you set. He then, in personal meetings, brings you along so that you can indeed meet your goals.  Unlike other coaches who might be more interested in themselves, Don obviously spends a lot of time thinking about you and your business. He has a plan and improvement steps are always clear and effective.  The best thing I can say to anyone about Don Odom is don’t delay, hire him today and don’t look back.

My business has improved as a result of working with Don. Our revenues are up, we have more customers and our business is more organized than ever before. Don’s has helped me see the things I was doing that held me and the company back. I moving from being knee deep in the day-to-day, to having a business that works, even when I am not there. Last year, I was finally able to take a vacation. The last time I did that was 8 years ago. Don’s practical business experience, sales and marketing know-how and sincere desire to improve things has helped me and my company tremendously. Things are better all-around from working with him.

Working with Don is personal and effective. He has many fresh ideas and prospective that are very helpful to me. He’s always thinking of “how he can help my company” improve. He doesn’t just offer good ideas; he gives me ways to implement them.

Don and I worked together to get a sales strategy going and to get me out of the weeds of day to day business operations. He picked up on what we are doing very quickly and was able to help almost immediately. Highly recommended.

We've only been working with Don for a few months now, but have already made big strides in improving several aspects of our business.  What makes Don stand out from some of the other business coaches is helping you become aware of your inner messages that keep you from getting the results that you want.   As he says, "there is an undeniable link between business success and self-success."  Don helps you see your blind spots, the ones that you don't see because you're too busy.  The best thing about him is he doesn't just tell you what to do, but helps you think things out and together come up with the best solutions and how to implement them. We just closed one of our biggest clients by implementing what we've learned so far along with Don's guidance.  Excited to continue building on the momentum we've started to gain.

 Don’s program and (in hindsight) his very astute coaching made me dig deep and reflect on where I was and where I was going as a business-owner. He helped me see my business differently and challenged me to embrace my authenticity. Today, my business is performing much better. I have so much more clarity. I can really account for everything that I need to do to meet my goals. My work with Don was truly transformational for me and my business.

I have been working with Don for almost a year and have seen dramatic improvements with our sales process and client experience. Individually, Don has helped me grow as a salesperson by increasing the effectiveness of how I talk with decision makers and making me more confident navigating a sales meeting. As of Q3 my company has already increased our yearly receivables by 30%. If you are looking to grow your business, talk to Don. It is a no-brainer.

 Don has helped me discover the fears and shortcomings that were getting in the way of my sales success. He taught me a sale process that I am able to repeat and over time, assisted me in peeling away the layers of insecurities and negative thoughts that I never knew existed, but that were getting in my way. I’m more confident than ever in how to sell and in myself. That has allowed me to get in front of the right people, ask the (right) tough questions and help my prospects tell me their real issues. Each year my sales have increased, and I couldn’t have done this on my own. I owe my success to the work that I’ve done with Don.

 Don has helped me recognize the internal obstacles (mindset, beliefs) that keeps me frustrated, full of anxiety and that prevent me from reaching my goals. Don shares with me alternatives that allow me to break through barriers as opposed to just navigating around them. Don’s approach is professional, personable and conveys a genuine interest in helping people. He’s great and what he does works!

Working with Don has made a huge impact on me personally and professionally. The techniques he’s developed are quite unique and applicable. He is very personable and has a passion for making his “students” and their businesses successful. I couldn’t be happier with using his services.

 Don is truly extraordinary at what he does. After several strong years in sales, I thought I knew how to acquire clients easily, efficiently, and quickly. My knowledge was incomplete. Don has the ability and the experience to help seasoned business owners and salesmen recognize the deficits in their prospecting model and the shortcomings of the language they use, and he helps them build a plan for confronting and controlling those rate-limiting problems. Don helped me to refine my sales processes and reevaluate the language I use with prospects. I have increased my client intake volume by 14%, my average client value by 12%, and my first-year client retention by 8%. More importantly, I have become more consistent in my client conversation.  Don likes to say he helps business owners recognize the blind spots of their business so they can make their business start to work for them. That's what he does--he finds a way to help people make course corrections. Implementing Don's advice and perspectives inside of my practice has been one of the most profitable things I have ever done.
