Testimonial from Pamela Petterle
Managing Broker, Land Park/Curtis Park Office
Lyon Real Estate

“This was my second Installation with you and I truly believe I understood more pieces on a deeper level this time than last . I enjoy your presentation style.  It is fast paced, on point, and easy to follow. You combined your teaching moments with interesting videos and fun games.  The group became more animated, relaxed and engaged as the days went on.  I truly appreciated your depth of knowledge and “buy in” of the Ninja way of life.  It was impactful  and inspiring to hear about your climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro. I believe I came in with the basic foundation of the Ninja way of life, but lacked the disciplines and guidelines to make it all possible. Thank you for the work you are doing and have done for our company.  It has and will continue to make a positive difference in both our personal and professional lives.”
