I have been working with Harlan over the past few months with a focus on managing and embracing growth in my company. He has been instrumental in providing me with the tools I need to put plans in place to grow my business through pricing, capacity planning and staffing. He holds me accountable to the weekly goals that we set together and I can see how it is paying off now. I highly recommend Harlan to any business owner who truly wants and needs to focus on growing their business. Mary Buzzeo – Coaching Client
I met with Coach Harlan on the advice of a colleague who is also a client of his. On our initial visit, Coach Harlan said “give me 2 hours a week and I’ll give you back a day.” I can say that has been more than true. He’s walked me through quite a few techniques for time management, stress management, as well as operational guidelines. In the time that we’ve been working together, not only do I get more accomplished in my day, my blood pressure has decreased and I’m enjoying what I do more and more. Coach Harlan’s duties go well above and beyond the time he spends with me each week. Everyone who runs a business needs a business coach…more specifically, they need a Coach Harlan.

Harlan was leading the Change Management aspect during a difficult transition in our company to a new ERP system. He was a calming voice of reason that always offered helpful suggestions to assist in managing my department and our division during a stressful time. I learned a great deal from him and still put to use some of his approaches in my current roles. I greatly enjoyed working with Harlan, strongly recommend him for future work and hope our paths cross again someday. Jack T. Smith – Consulting Client
Harlan led the change management in a very challenging ERP implementation for Howden North America. MS AX Dynamics required a significant departure from the procedures and processes previously used. Harlan ensured that throughout the implementation all parties were kept fully engaged and informed of how the implementation would impact individuals and groups. He quickly identified issues so that the team could communicate, train, persuade, involve the right people at the right time. I would welcome an opportunity to work with Harlan on a future project.

I had the pleasure of working with Harlan Hammack on the LMP Army Logistics Project in a group of trainers and instructional design developers. He is a pleasure to work with as he is highly knowledgeable in instructional design methodology and best practices. He brings many years experience to the table and in this regard is ‘nose down’ in his work, and always strives to provide the client with great context-related documentation design and output. I would recommend Harlan for any project in any training capacity and look forward to another opportunity to work with him again. Laura Pogliano – Consulting Colleague
I had the pleasure of working with Harlan on the U.S. Army Logistics Modernization Program. At the time Harlan was the Instructional Designer and Instructor for the APO Demand Planning course. Harlan was an outstanding instructor. His course was of the highest quality and his participant evaluations placed him in the top 1% performance bracket. Also during my time working with Harlan, he helpd me develop and execute several changemanagementt initiatives which were extremely successful.
I highly recommend Harlan both for his instructional capabilities as well as his change management talents. I hope someday I have the opportunity of working with him again. Jeff Klabish – Consulting Client/Colleague
Harlan is one of the best consultants that I have ever worked with. He is a person of incredibly high character who always goes above and beyond to do great work. Anyone would be lucky to have a person who is not only great at their job, but a pleasure to see every day at work. Nathan Rowell – Consulting Colleague
Wow what great experience, I love it! It's exactly what I've been looking for. Athena's group was the best investment I ever made. I don't know if I would have ever made it without her guidance and support!
I just love Athena's courses. They really give you a step by step method to grow your business. Everything is so clear and detailed! I have achieved so much since I started the programm: it totally changed my life.
I like this group more and more each day. It makes my life a lot easier. It's really wonderful to be able to get support from like minded entrepreneurs. And Athena is always available to advise us. Thank you so much!
At the beginning I just started with an idea, not knowing where to begin or even if I could do it. Athena's program answered all my questions and got me ready to quit my job and start my business within a month. I am so proud I finally took the risk to realize my dream.
I can't recommend Athena enough. I have learn so much about how to grow a business through social media and marketing. I am myself a coach and I know the importance of good support and guidance. If you are looking to grow your business Anna is the answer to your questions!
I was tired, working over hours. I didn't understand why my business wasn't taking off. I was ready to give up when I found this group. Since I joined I have started to look at my business through a totally different angle. I finally understood where to find my potential customers and how to address them to close a sale. It really made a huge difference: within 3 months I came from $300 to $6000 a month!
