079 - Treasure people with Sam Noel078 - Train your way to career freedom with Peyton Warwick077 - Take the red pill with Jerome Myers
Overview: Jerome Myers is a corporate America dropout who helps others exit the Matrix. He is the Founder of Dream Catchers; Owner of The Myers Development Group; Founder of Myers Methods; Co-Host of the Compression Podcast; and a Life Coach for Guards Down.  Jerome’s story: From the outside looking in, everything in my world was going to plan. My career was attached to a rocket. I was already making over 100 k, and I just finished my MBA at night. I'd married my college sweetheart a few years earlier, and our first daughter was happy and healthy. I had money in the bank, a huge house, my dream car, and the ability to travel out of the country regularly, but I was empty on the inside. I think most of us are like that. We are silently asking ourselves, is this all there is to life? Finally, I started asking my friends this same question and realized they were asking it too. I decided we have to fix this. After building a 20 MM division at a construction company and having to layoff my teammates two years in a row, I'd had enough and decided to become a full-time real estate entrepreneur. My approach to (YOU): In my approach to coaching we use trust, openness, compassion and direct communication to guide our clients on a range of professional and personal issues. By harnessing the power of counseling, consulting and mentoring we help them find their inspiration and use it as fuel to build the life they desire. Our process is simple, we gain clarity around the current situation, perform a gap assessment to see what resources are missing, then create a customized strategy that delivers RESULTS.
