“Jay and I began our coaching relationship as I was making the most significant transition of my career. With Jay’s help, I not only flourished through this season but experienced exponential personal growth. When we began the process, I had no idea how transformative Jay’s work in my life would be. The habits and practices I developed under his direction sharpened my effectiveness, strengthened my relationships and helped me to overcome critical obstacles in my life. Jay Puppo is a trusted friend, close advisor and remarkable coach. I quite literally would not be writing the story I am today without him.”

“Jay has coached me for six months, and in that time, I have experienced significant growth in my confidence as a small business owner. Jay has shown me how to focus my time and energy on the activities that positively impact myself, my family, and my business. He has taught me how to break down big goals into small, achievable actions, and because of this I’m breaking records in every part of my life — financially, professionally, and personally.

As a business owner and mother of two young children, my life is busy. Thanks to Jay’s coaching, I am more focused, with a calm, positive energy about me, and have become a leader in my territory and state for sales results.

Jay listens to me on such a deep level that hears both what I AM saying, and what I’m NOT saying. He is calm, thoughtful, and able to guide me to my own answer without ever telling me what I should do. He asks great questions, challenges me when I need it, and is supportive of me on a personal and professional level.

Jay, you are a friend for life! Thank you for seeing potential in me and helping me to believe it in myself.”

Grahame Martin

Business Development Executive at Systems Advisory Services, Inc. 

“Jay worked tirelessly coaching his agency team, achieving great success in the process, and he soon came to realize his true passion was in helping people succeed – in business and in life.

Jay’s a soft-spoken man, who listens intently; asks intelligent, pressing questions; and brings “outside the box” thinking which allows you to explore areas you haven’t yet considered as a path to success. His coaching demeanor relaxes and simplifies an often-overwhelming process, guiding you to the key issue at hand, while helping you identify that “lead domino,” which subsequently allows you to define actions to build momentum in your pursuit of success.

It’s an absolute pleasure and privilege to call Jay my friend — his integrity, ethical standards, and humility make him a truly special coach.”

“Jay has been a consummate professional and a valued coach and confidant, both personally and professionally, for almost two decades. He consistently puts his clients and his friends first, finding ways to add value to their lives. I am excited to see that the same skills that he has developed and leveraged to build a leading insurance agency are now being extended to help busy, motivated professionals apply best practices to improve the quality of their personal lives and achieve further business success. An earnest listener and inquisitive learner, Jay truly enjoys developing deep relationships with his clients and community.”
