"Fawzya, thank you for the opportunity to be on your radio show and share my recovery journey from a traumatic brain injury. I had lost so much after my fall; I thought I would never be able to function on the intellectual level I had had when I was teaching students and creating lessons. Your services as an executive function coach gave me the bigger skills sets, I needed to motivate me and expand my brain capacity to the point that I manage a part-time business. Being on your show today seemed like a celebration to see how far I have come!
I acknowledge your genuine love for people and learning, Fawzya. With your help I now can create and, again, make a difference in the lives of other people. What a delight to know and work with YOU! Are your customers raving about you on social media? Share their great stories to help turn potential customers into loyal ones."
