“When our paths crossed a year ago, I had no idea of the journey that lay ahead, Prof Bruce. Little did I know that our encounter would mark the beginning of a transformative chapter in my career and personal growth. Your guidance, wisdom, and support have been instrumental in shaping my professional trajectory in ways I could never have imagined. Your mentorship has helped me to step out of my comfort zone, seize opportunities, and navigate challenges with confidence knowing that I have you watching my back. Your insights and advice have provided me with great clarity and direction,” With sincerest gratitude, Patrick Lamothe, Co-Founder/CEO, Humble Creek Construction, Tiny Home Builder

Mentoring Changed My Life:

“I approached Prof Bruce for coaching after seeing one of his presentations. At the time, I had only just started in real-estate investment and was undoubtedly a novice. Prof Bruce’s coaching changed my life by giving me a business-owner perspective to real-estate investment and other entrepreneurial ideas I had. Being able to break down a concept into realistic strategies for monetizing an idea and attracting real customers proved to be incredibly useful. Countless other skills were found along the way: For example, creating road maps for business growth or fleshing out agreements with investors and stakeholders without giving up the farm, as they say. All such things were new to me, and as a person with no background or experience in business, such concepts were greatly illuminating, and I would even qualify them as life changing. I also saw how critical it was to get these things right (especially your business model, yes, biz models also apply to real estate investing and development) from the beginning. It is certainly no surprise that more than 90% of new businesses fail in their first few years. Whether you have a real estate portfolio (or would like to develop one), a simple idea on the back of a napkin for a new enterprise, are a small business that needs to grow, or you are developing strategies for merging, selling or transforming your business, Prof Bruce will lend you an invaluable helping hand,” Alex Colligan, tech worker and real estate investor, developer, builder
