Collaboration is Fun and Rewarding

Lee Richter Print 3When I go to work, I am excited to see what my amazing team and I will create together. We love to bring value to our customers, our community and the world. We brainstorm with our customers and ask them what would improve their experience.

Keep Your Clients Coming Back

ClientsAs a business success coach and a sales coach, I work with business people whose clients are everything from large companies in California that have been in business for decades to micro businesses that have started in the last two years.
