I'm trying to build Rome and Domenic is giving me the lay of the land and the other empires out there. Another solid session. The agenda was to present my approach and key pieces of my startup project to Domenic. I received valuable feedback informed by his stellar background as both investor and founder and came up with an understanding and plan of what steps lie ahead. The challenge is tremendous but I'm motivated!

Felt comfortable right away talking about where I want to go and some challenges I've had the past year as an entrepreneur. Looking forward to the coaching to make me the best founder I can be.

Domenic was thoughtful, kind and listened to my current situation with a clear desire to learn more about me and how he and Hireclub could be of assistance for me. I felt like I was being listened to and not just viewed as a transaction for the team. I enjoyed the conversation and felt confident in Domenic's direction!

I had my intro call with Domenic, he was very open and clear on what HC offers. I appreciated his sincerity and how he shared a little bit of himself which built rapport with me.
