learn about the amazing results achieved by additional Success Now
clients who have continued to apply the Jump Now philosophy and Carol Pierce's recommendations to their
businesses, click here to read their Success
After gaining the confidence she needed and by applying Carol Pierce's recommendations, one small business client successfully obtained a quarter of a million dollar loan to grow her business to the next level.
Another landed a major consulting contract within a few weeks of applying Carol's advice and re-located his business to where he really wanted to be at an even more affordable price than he thought possible.
Speaker, trainer, and author of Get Off Your Attitude Ryan Lowe sought Carol Pierce's consulting services in 2009, wanting advice on how to get his own business off the ground. When they both were hired as presenters for a recent hospitality industry seminar, Ryan asked Carol Pierce if she would once again accept him as a client. In a follow-up note, he added, “Please keep doing all the great things you are doing for others. People definitely need a great person like yourself in their lives to give them direction to reach their dreams.“
Others have been so pleased with the results they've achieved by hiring Success Coach Carol Pierce to help them get what they really wanted that they've remarked:
“Thank you so much for your support, especially during the last 3 months...“
“Thank you for being such a great mentor. . .“
“You've really kept me pumped up through all this...“
the first time we met, I felt we had a definite connection.
Every time we got together to discuss the progress and what
was being accomplished . . . I felt more motivated to go
forward. Carol brought out the courage and the confidence
in me to become successful. Knowing she saw that in me
made it much easier to see it in myself. Carol also showed
me my talents . . .”

Adams adds these comments in his note following the release
of his book:
“ . . . I've heard words such as "can't put it
down," "very well-written," "a lot of
research," etc. One person mentioned that she had to
take a break at about page 65 to bring her mother to the doctor.
And she didn't even get to the interesting part, yet!! Another
was almost late for work because she started looking at it
for lunch. One person was amazed that I could write so well
that I fit so many facts in so little space without confusing
anyone. I have to take credit for the research, but
the well-writtens and can't-put-it-downs are your doing.
Those words would not have been applied to the manuscript
I took to you---The words are applied to the one I took away
from you. Every time I get one of those compliments, you come
