Advisory Board

Let your gifts blossom

Obtaining wisdom is of paramount importance to any business.

At Path2Success4ME we believe that certain gifts are inherent in all people and that their experiences in life can bring them forth or bury them.  Our challenge is to encourage those gifts to blossom.

The hand selected members of our Board of Advisors are each representative of the care and concern one would expect from a special person in your life.  Should you have the opportunity to get to know any of these fine people you will realize you are with someone special.

The Encouragers behind the leadership coaching principals of Path2Success4ME are sincere, nurturing, involved, professionally trained non-judgmental people, without an edge of ego.  They are in this line of work because they are suited for it.

Professionally, they have been trained by the best, served in illustrious business and educational endeavors, and most of all, they have heart to reach out and help others with the opportunities offered by p2s4me.
