Requested Adam's services for my brother. He only had great things to say about Adam. Many Thanks!May 6, 2017Verified
I was looking for a coach to help me work through some professional challenges I've been struggling with recently. Adam's professional resume is very impressive and immediately grabbed my attention. We've had two coaching sessions so far, and I felt better than I have in a long time and finally felt I had a sense of clarity about what I need to do to continue growing my business without completely sacrificing my personal life and sanity. I highly recommend giving Adam a chance to help you. You will not be disappointed.Apr 22, 2017Verified

Adam is a true gem--he goes above and beyond! Adam is truly knowledgeable and is never short of advise! He is always available and has been nothing but a supportive coach throughout my process. He will absolutely be my go-to resource when prepping for any major (or minor) presentation. Do yourself a favor and hire Adam for your next project and you will not be sorry!Feb 24, 2017Verified
Adam is a career coach who is forthright and encouraging. Willing to share stories of his own personal experiences he provides a level of trust that makes talking to him feel natural. He asks great questions that help you realize things about yourself you may not see, or do not want to see yet, so that you can overcome whatever it is that may be holding you back from achieving great things. This man is extremely knowledgeable, intuitive and cultivating. Willing to give others the push and knowledge they need to succeed, he will listen intently and give you tools so that you are confident and prepared heading into the next stage of your life. I have only had one session with Adam so far and I already feel like I have this amazing resource to build off of that will help me succeed as long as I am willing to commit to myself and the work it takes to better myself.May 4, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My time and experience are worth $135/hr to me at the moment, but I consider each request individually and often offer a flat fee or trade
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I take an initial 45-minute consultation free of charge, either in person or by phone if meeting in person isn't possible. On the basis of that consult, I'll draft a proposal letter for you outlining the scope of services and a preliminary schedule, which you can accept or modify as you see fit.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I became one of the most celebrated figures in Portland's coffee scene through my companies Coffeehouse Northwest, Sterling Coffee, and Coffee Roasters United. I've studied economics, business management, data analysis, marketing, sales development, nutrition, exercise science, and game theory and applied lessons from each to my life and to those I've consulted with in my 12 year career.
