"Dan Pestretto has an uncanny ability to instinctively apply business principles to problems faced by every business owner. In this I have seen tremendous results in my own company. With Dan's indispensable guidance the application of strategic planning, the understanding of process and management combined with leadership have propelled my company towards the vision I thought I would never achieve.

The empowerment that comes from working with a coach on the things that have held you back is indescribable. You cannot do it alone, we are all blinded by the things we cannot see and don't even know are a problem. Dan not only sees these problems, but puts you to work on them, defines them and creates a positive direction for steering the boat in a new direction. Working with Dan is empowering, enlightening and inspiring."
