People of Every Color, Creed, Gender, or Background
Why share the list that follows? Well, of course, to establish my bona fides. Beyond that, I’d also like to give you something more to relate to—a sense that maybe I can better understand your challenges because I’ve been there before with someone else like you. That doesn’t mean I use turnkey solutions, though. Every engagement is tailored to the situation you find yourself facing at this moment. Want to know more?

Have you really worked with that many people?
I sometimes get asked if I really have worked with all the types of clientele I list above. Why, yes. Yes, I have. I’ve been doing this work for more than 40 years. As time goes by, things do add up.
Of course, in some cases, I include synonyms for a single client type. For example, “artisan” could apply to a potter, a baker, or a cabinet maker and “healthcare worker” certainly overlaps with “health professional.” I justify using the synonyms because not everyone identifies with every label that might apply to the livelihood they have or seek to have.
Does this mean that I’m an expert in all those jobs? No! Not at all. Rather it means that I’ve been able to help a wide variety of people, regardless of the type of job they had.
