We all needed someone to help us hit the reset button. Juan’s message helped us refocus as an organization and as individuals. It helped us clear away the day to day clutter and get back to the core of who we are. As a manager, it gave me peace of mind knowing that Juan is providing valuable information and tangible takeaways for every member of our team.”
