The Objective

Few of us have the time to sit and read a book these days. Audible has helped, giving the opportunity to utilize that dead time while driving or shopping, but still finding hours to read books is tough. That doesn't mean we should give up on it. Sometimes, just hearing the premise is enough. Sometimes it helps to give you a gentle push to finish (or start) that book. The Book Re•Source provides all the critical takeaways. Think "cliffs notes" but better. You'll get the resource without the time commitment.

"Through John Geraghty’s sessions and one-on-one conference coaching, I have finally discovered who I am. There is an inner strength within myself that I never knew existed – until now. He was a very important influence when I was at a major crossroad in my life. With John’s help and advice, I was able to deal with the negative emotions, doubts and fears that I have felt during this past year. I have made the most of some bad situations, and I couldn’t have put things into perspective so easily without John helping to guide me. I am now living my life on purpose, with a new energy."

-Vicki Bruns MBA Student

"Coaching with John Geraghty has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. Over the past 15 years, through many twists and turns, curve balls and home runs, John has been there to help me create, nurture and protect my family, my business and my well-being. He is the perfect trifecta of being wicked smart, empathetic and bold. He inspires me every week to go confidently in the direction of my dreams and instills in me the belief that I can be more than I ever knew. In every possible way, my life, business partnership, marriage and friendships are better because of John. He is truly the best in the business."

"Working with John has been a game changer for me. Not only has he helped me grow and improve my business, he's helped me to do this with less stress and more happiness because I am living by my values. He's helped me get a handle on all of the moving pieces in my life by bringing in to focus the things that matter most and I can influence. I would highly recommend anyone looking to improve and take their life to the next level of success to work with John."
