"When I was first recruited as a consultant in Los Angeles 30 years ago I was working in San Jose radio, but had never worked with a consultant. Frankly, I had no idea what a consultant did! I quickly recognized what an opportunity was being offered and let clients teach me what to do by listening to what was needed most, applying all of my abilities to solving those problems. I still operate that way today."
