Joe Grushkin was very
well received at the recent Yarn Market News Smart Business conference in
Seattle. Positive, energizing and motivating, he really connected with the
audience – a room full of entrepreneurs and business owners (yarn shop
proprietors and yarn company executives, to be precise) and scored high on our
Indeed, the word that came up most
often in describing Joe Grushkin was “inspirational.”
He spent what seemed like five minutes (because
it went by so fast), but was actually over an hour, addressing the topic of
attaining more balance with practicality and passion, providing both concrete
resources and a refreshing point of view.
enticed his audience, caught our attention and kept us interested.” I would
have to agree – I’m still applying suggestions Joe made in his talk to my own
life --- and would recommend him wholeheartedly as a keynote speaker.

Joe Grushkin is an
excellent business coach,
His caring and sense of humor make him so easy to approach
But it’s his no nonsense style, that makes him great,
And his true ability to motivate
He challenges his clients for a bigger dream,
And he manages to improve their self-esteem
After each session I felt more empowered to achieve,
He inspired me to reach farther than I could believe
Joe has a passion for knowledge and a yearning to learn,
He’s dedicated to increasing what his clients will earn
He combines his coaching skills with the “law of attraction,”
Showing how abundance is possible, with the right action
Joe’s committed to making your business expand,
He gives real strategies, not just holding your hand
Grushkin is an outstanding business coach. He not only brings an experienced
depth of knowledge to our coaching relationship but he will cut to the chase and
tell it like it is. He tells the truth. Joe’s commitment to nurturing and
growing both our business and personal relationship has been extra-ordinary.
His availability to take calls outside of the actual coaching sessions is what
makes Joe an exceptional coach. He has always been there for me. He is not only
very intuitive, but he is an excellent listener. Joe is among the best that I
have seen in the industry.As a result of Joe's coaching, I had my best year in 23 years of business.

I just wanted to take time to let you know how much your coaching with me one on one is viewed in my eye's, it is PRICELESS!!!!!!
When we started out I knew I was a good person, but with your leadership mentoring and training I am now a leader!!!! My life has taken a 180-degree change since I began working with you and everyone around me has noticed. I am now hearing things like, "wow Cindy you were great at that program" or "you handle that like a pro", I even had a Captain say... "you are riding a white horse" in response to my work ethic and attitude.
I can never put into words how much your coaching and developing friendship has really touch me down deep in my soul and no amount of money will ever be able to pay you or could truly pay you what that is worth in my eyes.
The one thing I know is that I feel like I won the lotto with having you as my coach. I know every thing you have taught me and helped me to discover inside myself will only improve who I am as a human and help me to pay it forward to others. This, again, is in my eyes PRICELESS that no amount of money could ever match.
I can say without a doubt you are the best coach I have ever had in my life. I would recommend you "in a New York second" to anyone looking for a coach, to grow personally or professionally...you give way more than you charge in fees. I would feel sorry for someone if they didn't have an opportunity to be coached by you, in my eyes they are missing out on the true secret in life!!!!.
Thanks again for everything - as I said...you are PRICELESS!!!!!

Joe Grushkin gave me much than I hired him for. Initially, we were supposed
to work on ideas on how to move my business forward. Joe developed strategies
and worked through each one with me that not only helped my company to grow, but
also set a good pace for future expansion.
on top of that, he really taught me about the importance of self-value and
how much your time is worth. This is a vital factor in running a successful
business that many people never learn. Joe Grushkin gave me my life back! He
showed me many ways to take more time for myself and in addition, proved to me
that this made a stronger, more confident and more cohesive staff. I never would
have believed it if I didn't experience it myself. would write more, but packing
to leave on vacation. My family and i thank Joe Grushkin all the time. Our
business has never been more successful. It continues to grow and I have taken
off more time in the past six months than I did in the past four years.
"Joe Grushkin brings a unique spirit to everything he touches. His passion for
excellence and commitment to his convictions are at the highest levels. He
helped bring out the best in me and I am forever thankful."

Joe Grushkin is a man of honor, character and integrity.He can help anyone who wants to be
helped.He is so humble that I would
have never imagined how successful he is if I didn’t already know.He never once bragged or boasted about his
accomplishments or about his material things.He did not only suggest reading material, but he also answered questions
I would ask and he brainstormed with me when I came up with ideas to improve my
business.Joe worked very hard and was
very dedicated to me.I emailed him on
several different occasions and many times there was a reply before I even
logged off of the computer.
In summary, my coaching/mentoring sessions with Joe Grushkin have helped
me change my outlook on life and change my life itself.I am very thankful for the opportunity that
Joe was available and willing to coach/mentor me.It has been one of the most positive
experiences in my life thus far.
Thank you Joe!!

Joe Grushkin came into our wellness
center, Dorr Way To Health, during our holiday party in 2005. Our staff
consisted of 3 main players being a nutritional counselor, a massage therapist,
and a personal trainer. Our business was doing well, but we knew an element was
missing from the mix. We knew we were not as organized as we needed to be, both
individually and as a group.
Joe came in and helped to bring us
all together. He worked with us as a group and also separately. He made
himself available to us by phone and also email, which he promptly returned when
we left him messages. He helped us to formalize our thoughts and goals. He
also helped us with our marketing ideas; he is really good at wording
I started working with Joe in 1984 as a sales rep while in college. Followed
him into sales management and can honestly say that I do not believe I would be
running my own company today if it were not for the experience and education I
received while working with Joe. Always the leader, always out in front, always
looking to make people, products and programs better.
Although I have only had the honor of knowing Joe Grushkin for the past 6
months or so, the knowledge and respect he has taught me is worth a lifetime!
Joe has personally coached me from being an absolute "greenhorn" in business to
a person who can now teach and help others learn and grow in business
themselves. He has a wonderful knack of telling it like it is while
simultaneously bring out the best in you. His attention to detail leaves no
stone unturned and there is no mistaking his desire for perfection. I am truly
honored and grateful for the opportunity to work with Joe and for the friendship
that we have developed thus far. This guy just gets it!

“Without a doubt, meeting you in 1987 forever changed my
professional life. You exposed me - and many, many others - to new ideas and
improved our skills. You expanded our personal perceptions and helped us realize
limits are something we impose on ourselves. Every conversation yielded new
insights that challenged our thinking and uncovered new opportunities to
improve. You taught us the importance of passion and attitude. I am grateful for
that initial meeting and the 20+ years of continuous interaction, support and
mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher
demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.--

I met Joe about 3 yrs. ago through some mutual business associates. I took a
liking to him immediately. Joe came off as a very powerful and influential type
of person. He knew where he was going, and how to get there. Joe and I spent many
hours together or on the phone conquering all types of business challenges. Joe
always had time for me and returned phone calls no matter what he was doing. I
have a lot of respect for him as a businessman and a friend.

Joe was one of my
biggest cheerleaders when my business, Bespeak Presentation Solutions, was in
its fledgling stages. He offered sound measured advice, and always always
with praise and encouragement.
worked with Joe Grushkin for almost ten years as a fellow Division Manager with
a National Sales Company. He is successful not only in business but also in his
personal relationships. He is a great father and husband who puts his family
first. Success in life is achieving balance in all you do. He has achieved that
all the things Joe taught me along the way, it was how to think big and how to
believe you can achieve big things in your life. Joe has the business
experience and skills to help people achieve their goals and
is a tremendous motivator who truly cares about the people he works with. Not
only has Joe achieved numerous national sales awards personally, he has
developed multiple national champions at virtually every level of business from
entry level sales people to regional and national managers.
remember people calling Joe an idea machine. He will always find a way to make
something work bigger and better than it has in the past.
is a true leader that has always gone out and did it himself first. Usually when
others said it could not be done.

“Joe Grushkin inspires all those who connect with him... in any
context... because he radiates a positive vibration of service to
others. And his leadership projects this feeling strongly in all his
activities that involve interaction with others. Joe's coaching skills
and insight on what it takes to be successful in in life and in
business, in any economy, have made a significant difference in my life
this year. I am grateful to have shared some time with him and highly
recommend that you connect with Joe as a business coach.”

people who shoot straight from the hip and tell you like it is. Joe is that
person. Joe has gotten me to open up my eyes to the many possibilities out
there and how to think outside the box. I appreciated all of the useful
business insight he has offered and his honesty and humor. He has made me see
the forest through the trees, to look at the bigger picture not only within my
business, but personally as well. It has been a pleasure knowing Joe both
professionally and as a friend. He is a consummate professional and a TRUE

Joe Grushkin is one of the most dynamic leaders I've worked with. Not only is
he knowledgeable, he is caring and puts his heart into his work. In working
together with Joe, not only have I been blessed with a caring mentor and
business associate, but I've been blessed with a lifelong friend. Thank you
Joe for all you do.
Joe emits a certain presence, a certain kind of attraction that brings people to
him. I met Joe about 8 years ago. I was the general manager of a
car wash /detail center and Joe was one of my customers. Over time I got to know
Joe and we developed a relationship that extended outside of business where Joe served as a personal mentor to me.
Joe is a
genuinely kind hearted person that would give you the shirt off his back if you
needed it. I have seen Joe prosper in everything he does. He has been a
business mentor, coach, and close friend to me in all aspects of both my
personal and professional life. Without Joe, life would not be the same. I
have seen some dark days in my life as of recent, but Joe has been the positive
influence I needed to keep going a day at a time. Thank you Joe for everything;
past, present, and future.
