Your Own Worst Enemy: Breaking the Habit of Adult Underachievement (Regan Books, HarperCollins: 2002)."From being mentored by Alan since 1999, here are hard results my business has realized: I have successfully raised my speaking and consulting fees by more than one thousand percent.
- I attribute 70%-80% of my current net worth directly to his mentoring.
- When I started with Alan, my keynote fee was $1,000, it's now $10,000.
- I didn't know anything about consulting in 99'. Last year, I closed more than a quarter million dollars in consulting alone.
- He instills confidence, discipline, market awareness and a targeted business saavy to your approach. If 'work less, make more' is part of your quest, hire Alan. If you think this is another typical endorsement, call me any time: 708-902-4775."

You deliver what you promise including returning calls in 90 minutes and giving sound business advice. What I most appreciate is your laser coaching-no psychobabble, just good, practical advice. ("You're not charging enough").
Recently, I was challenged by how to transition from an hourly coaching fee to a retainer model. The two biggest obstacles were ignorance and fear. I didn't know how to structure and price my services and I thought new clients would object.
In literally five minutes you gave me three options with different price points. You made it sound so simple. I'm happy to say that I just booked my first retainer client!
Thanks again."Diane DiResta
