I would highly recommend Vernon for speaking engagements/presentations for seminars, corporate training sessions, dealer/franchisee or mastermind meetings. Vernon delivers…”

Larry Davis, Owner- Fox Tacks Marketing

“I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Vernon speak on several occasions. His personal stories along with his overall knowledge of business needs makes it very easy to relate to him. I always come away with action items to implement each time.”

Cathy Gumbiner, President- Hall of Fame Financial

“I’ve seen Vern speak on more than one occasion, including him speaking to clients of our own. His messages are important and his delivery is impactful! We’ll continue to use Vern as his speaking has absolutely provided significant value to us.”

Kellen Fish, Partner- KTF Law Firm

“I own an IT and managed services company and before I met Vernon and Devoted Enterprises, I had zero work life balance. He not only helped me set expectations with my staff, but he gave me the tools and ideas needed to take my business from a “hobby” (because it wasn’t profitable as it should have been) to a thriving successful business where I can now go on vacation and away for the weekend without worrying about my business! He is worth every penny because he got me motivated again!”

Troy S., Owner, Sol-Is

“Vernon and Devoted Enterprises are an absolute machine! I have never seen someone work as hard for my business as they do. I have not had the best luck in the past with “coaches” or “consultants” because the value wasn’t there. They are worth every penny! If you want to learn work life balance and get your swagger back, you need to hire them and get them to teach you what processes and systems you need in your business to make you more successful and profitable.”

Joe A., Owner, Accar Jewelry

“I used to hate coming to work every day and was on the verge of leaving the organization until they brought Vernon in to work with us. The changes that he made in our organization were amazing and he reversed five years of negativity and no team work in a matter of months! He is the best motivator I have ever worked with and to this day we use his sayings and teachings and have coined them “Vern-isms.”
