“I just wanted to say THANK YOU THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for changing my life.”

I would find myself constantly getting frustrated with him because I was thinking his way of doing things was wrong and slow.

After doing the Enneagram personality profiling session with you everything fell into place.  I was totally unaware of the different personality types and how they impact our lives and the way we behave. I understand my husband for the first time in my married life.  He being the peacekeeper does things totally different from me.  I understand my son the questioner and will definitely know how to handle him and give him all the information he needs going forward.

Thank you Ed you are truly amazing and this course should be compulsory for everyone just like paying taxes!!!

“The process has helped me grow and always look out for that “positive intention” through all my dealings.

I now fully appreciate that “gift of frustration”, and it is my choice of how I decide to handle any situation thrown my way.

This is not always easy but I think I am 80% of the way! I do have a few setbacks every now and then, but it is the getting back and staying positive that matters.”

“I’M NOW Zizwegs DSD

“Thank you Eduan for availing yourself and allowing your true open nature to allow me to open myself up for the opportunity to take control of my business and life.

Our coaching journey has given me the gift in my business to allow my staff to take accountability for their role in my life and their responsibility towards the business.

We all seek to fulfil our duties in each other’s lives as we are brought together in the business world.”
