“I have sat through many seminars over the years. However, The A/E Empowerment Program® is the first and only program that provided us with practical advice across many different areas of our practice. It identified the low hanging fruit, as well as long term strategies, and put us into action. I highly recommend the program!!”

“For the first time in this business, someone has tapped into what it’s really all about – relationships.

I never would have gotten them without The Relationship Advantage™. What a difference! Thanks Steve!”
