“Before I found Dale, I was barely making it through the day. My boss did not support my decisions, information was kept secret and the whole atmosphere was rife with office politics. I was miserable. Not only did Dale help me get clear on my goals (to leave my company), she helped me keep sane in my crazy job. I can’t thank you enough.” Pamela W, Regional Sales Manager, Major Furniture Retailer, Chicago, IL
