Joshua is one of the top coaches I’ve worked with - and I’ve seen some of the best in the world. As I shifted gears in my career, I needed accountability and someone to help me stretch when I really could’ve coasted... and he definitely gave me what I needed to achieve my goals and make the biggest impact I could, both in my field and beyond. Josh’s skills as a coach are matched by his courage as a person, and I couldn’t recommend him enough to anyone considering making him part of their inner circle.
