Senior Fiduciary Advisor

Through the recommendation of a friend, I reached out to Bob at one of the lowest points in my recent career life.
Without hesitation, Bob listened and remembered every detail of my remarkably difficult situation. He quickly became my trusted 'go-to' when weighing my options - both professionally and personally. To this day I consider him my advisor, voice of reason, mentor, and friend. You will not find anyone better, no matter what career stage you are in.

I contacted Bob for mock interview services. I had two life-changing job opportunities in front of me and I didn’t want to fumble them. Bob performed a Mock interview over the phone with me as I lived over two hours from his office. He was able to immediately identify areas I could improve and really built up my confidence. On the day of the interviews, I received one job offer and one follow up interview. Bob helped me navigate my decision making process and communication with both recruiters. In the end, I got the job I wanted and a $25k raise! This was a pivotal moment in my career and I am so glad I had Bob in my corner to back me up and provide me the assurance I needed.

Chief Operating Officer

Managing the corporate world can be a daunting task. Often times the ladder to success can be a rickety and unsteady climb. Expectations from leaders and managers can be cloudy and misleading, resulting in frustration and an increase in self-doubt. An experienced and thoughtful coach can guide and navigate you through this journey. Bob Lovely exemplifies those qualities. His ability to "know the real you" enables him to offer truth and recommendations that will enhance your career. Bob has served as my coach and his clear, concise, and truthful suggestions have always steered me in the right direction.
