  • Client Image

    The Nussbaum Center took me from where I was, a person with an idea, to where I am, a business owner who has survived (and perhaps even prevailed) in a volatile education market.

    • Greensboro Online Tutoring, Associate Business
    • CTO
  • Client Image

    I tended not to focus on my own needs. I have marveled at Sam Funchess' ability to counsel me out of this short-sightedness. I have been both challenged and nurtured in our regular coaching sessions to make my business goals for me, not give away that essential priority.

    • Jack Hileman, TherapyWorks, Associate Business
    • CEO
  • Client Image

    Sam (Funchess) developed a Mastermind group of business owners/managers facing similar problems. We keep each other focused on the right things, share struggles, successes, tips, and help each other out.
