Kind Words from Happy Clients
Nanette Polito's coaching was very educational and a tremendous asset to my small business. I not only learned the value of creating and building strong networks, but it also provided me with a system to track my process. The program also exposed me to the VCP principal (visibility, credibility & profitability) and how to best utilize this practice to build lasting relationships that were created among participants and the support I received from meeting weekly with other small business owners. I highly recommend Nanette!

I would highly recommend Nanette Polito's coaching. The material was pertinent to all businesses and really opens your mind to think creatively. I count the class members as colleagues and friends and will remember as I meet people "that I am always standing in the middle of a referral", not necessarily for myself, but for all those that I interact with via BNI and fellow classmates.

I cannot say enough good things about Nanette Polito! I enrolled in her program five months ago and am amazed at the results I have seen already. This class came at the perfect time for me because I was in the process of merging two businesses and trying to determine what my focus should be. Through the one-on-one coaching sessions with Nanette, it became clear what I was passionate about and where I should focus my energy. The subjects covered in class and the homework assignments have practical applications for my business. Within sixty days, I started seeing tangible results – connections, leads, and closed deals. At this point, the class is more than paying for itself. I’m excited to see my return on investment by the time class is finished! If you’re considering coaching just do it! You’re leaving a lot of money on the table if you don’t.

Before working with Nanette, one of my biggest challenges was networking and speaking confidently in front of a group of people. I didn't know how to market my business to my sphere of referral partners. By learning and understanding my 'Why', the reason for which I am in this career, I have learned how to effectively market my business.
What made me decide to invest in the program was Nanette's passion for seeing me succeed and watching other people's success from her programs.
I am loving my business again. My job had become mundane. I have a new appreciation for my partners that I have been able to share with them.
The return on my investment in the class has been the confidence to network. Nanette helped me greatly with the play "It’s a Wonderful Life” this helped me with being heard from the back of the room.
Nanette taught me how to enjoy my weekly business meeting with my sales team. How to have a foundation for the passion in the business I am currently employed. Understanding how many people can be a referral partner's in your realm or sphere.
Over the last two years, my entire approach to sales and marketing has experienced a radical overhaul thanks in no small part to Nanette and her passionate teaching and coaching.
Through Nanette's curriculum and peppered with her own experience and wisdom, she has refined (and in some cases eliminated) the skills that I have developed over a 25-year career in sales and sales management.
If you had given me an examine and one of the questions read something such as, "Which are easier to close, referred leads or cold prospecting leads?" I knew the answer. However, I never knew how to get out of the cycle of HUNT | KILL | EAT. That may sound crude, but that is the sales process for most companies.
What Nanette taught, but more importantly, COACHED me to do was effectively build deeply committed referral partnerships. These partnerships have brought greater results than I could have ever achieved alone.
It's not rocket science, but it is a system that you can replicate over and over again. Then, once your referral partners start using the same system, you begin to experience the synergy of referral marketing.
Thank you Nanette for your investment in my business, but mostly for your investment in me.
I have been in Nanette Polito's Class for the last 6 months. In the beginning, I couldn’t figure out why I do what I do for a living. After one personal coaching session, I now realize “WHY”. Finding out “WHY” completely changes the reason I wake up in the morning.
I encourage anyone looking to better themselves and make more money in less time, to contact Nanette.
The mood at Arlinghaus Heating & Air Conditioning has changed from above average to “greatness.” Nanette made a huge impact on my business life which also affected my personal life. The changes are un-imaginable. I have applied the tools that I learned from Nanette Polito to the Arlinghaus team and we are able to set goals that are clear and achievable. I had never truly put together an in-depth business plan and now I have. It is our path to follow with purpose and direction. I have been able to polish our mission statement creating one that is true to the Arlinghaus values. It is mandatory that every time we have a team meeting the mission statement is read out loud. The team loves it, they believe in it and they want to be part of it. It is:
“Through Teamwork, we will achieve and exceed the expectations of our customers by providing the best quality solutions, products, and services provided by highly trained and integrity like-minded individuals. People don’t care how much we know until they know how much we care. Service is our passion.”
We now have weekly meetings with the installation and service departments. We are taking photos of all jobs and sharing them on a projector during the meeting. We then can collaborate to determine what we did correctly and what could have been done better. We refer to service manuals that are read aloud and encourage each team member to do some research at home. Arlinghaus has a standard to live up to and this tool helps us to achieve the best possible customer care.
Learning the skills to develop my company operating procedures and implementing them, has also affected my personal life. Because of the direction my business is now going, I have been able to enjoy much needed time at home with Heather and my kids with no stress. The payoff is tremendous!
So I am saying to you from the bottom of my heart, keep doing what you are doing because you have affected more than just my life, you have affected the lives of 26 Arlinghaus employees. They come to work with a purpose and they can go home in a great mood which affects their family life too. WAHOO!

Love my coaching sessions!!
I cannot say enough good things about Nanette Polito. I have worked with her through some personal coaching as well as coaching with my Team and it has been great. Her desire to make everyone around her successful comes through her vibrant personality, but with a gentle touch. She's there for support, guidance, direction, tough-love, and a hug when it's needed. Okay, a hug even when it's not needed. If you're looking for a coach that understands human behavior and all personality styles and how to get along with them, you owe it to yourself to give Nanette a try.

As someone from a non-sales background, a major concern of mine was finding the correct ways to talk about myself and my business. Nanette took a unique approach to work within my comfort zone and educate me regarding referral networking, quick "commercials", and targeted audiences. Working with Nanette has been a tremendous gain both personally and professionally, and her advice and expertise has helped in a variety of ways within my company, in areas completely unexpected at the time we began
Nanette, thank you for sharing your thoughts and knowledge with us.
This is great subject matter that I think pertains to many of us in the business world.
I know for me it is very hard to ask for a testimonial let alone any thing else.
This area has always been a weak spot in our business. The few times I have asked for a testimonial they always say sure! I know that I love to be asked for help and to give a testimonial or a review.
Your blog has given me some good ideas to go forth with.
Thank you again for sharing and keeping us in your thoughts. Dan
You’re welcome! Remember it is one step at a time!
