“After 32 years in media as a "work for hire" either as an on air talent or an advertising account manager, I was floundering and looking for some purpose in the my life and career. One night meeting with Lenore Mewton changed my life and career. She was able to break me down to my true essence or passion. During my career, I was happiest when I was working with young people on a sports talk show for kids. I had always wanted to teach and coach young people, and her advice and guidance gave me the confidence I needed to pursue my dream of starting my first business. I was so concerned about how I was going to make a living I had lost my way to finding my true self. Lenore gave me the mental support and confidence I needed.
Interestingly over the past 19 months in business, I have been told by investors, that the passion I have for my dream is one of my greatest assets. Lenore unleashed that passion and now the sky is the limit. Needless to say the lesson learned from my time with Lenore was invaluable, and I would totally recommend her services to anyone who is contemplating a change in direction in life or career”. -- President, Founder of Youth Sports Broadcasting Programs
