Client Stories

Pete Keane

“I started my own firm nearly nineteen years ago.  While I was blessed with a reasonable level of success, it was never my ambition to die at my desk, working excessive hours.  Institute Success™ helped me step outside my work box – the intense and volatile world of hedge fund management – and realize that elusive life of balance.  He helped me pare down work and boldly build up my passion for every day.”

Pete Kean, President of Keane Capital Management

Dan Garvey

“Working with my Institute Success™ Executive Coach, we developed a set of goals that were not just based on revenue, but things I wanted to change or improve in the business. My gross sales are way up as are my profits. I am more confident in my own leadership abilities. Before I may have been tentative about making changes; now we can go forward without fear. I consider my coach as a partner who helps my business succeed while I learn and grow as a leader. The way I evaluate the investment in coaching is by looking at the bottom line—at the end of the day, I see value. It’s something every entrepreneur should experience.”

Dan Garvey, President, United Brokerage Packaging

Ira Bass

“In the course of a lifetime, you may meet only a few people who have a profound impact on you.  For me, Harvey Smith is one of those individuals. I can’t imagine what my life and career would look like without him. When I met Harvey, I was considering my next career move and I really had no idea how to go about finding a career in which I could leverage my strengths, be my own boss, and earn an income that satisfied my financial needs. Once Harvey partnered with me, I gained clarity about my vision for career success and we designed a strategy for implementing a plan and creating the business and career of my dreams. My company, IB Media helps businesses and individuals leverage LinkedIn to propel their businesses and careers forward. Without Harvey’s brilliant coaching, I probably would not have achieved my success as quickly as I did. I call Harvey him my conscience that sits on my shoulder.  He has given me the tools and ongoing encouragement to continue to succeed regardless of the challenges encountered along the way. Through hard work and being challenged along the way, clarity of vision is the end result. I’ve told numerous friends and associates about Harvey and what he has meant to me. I can honestly say that my success is a testament to Harvey’s skillful coaching and his unwavering desire for every client to succeed.”

Ira Bass, CEO, IB Media LLC and Connect To Success
