What others say about their experiences with our coaches…

“Thank you so much for coming to National Nanny Training Day Southwest Florida. All of the nannies in attendance, really enjoyed your workshop. The interactive content really made it entertaining as well as informative. I hope we can work together again in the future.”

Jessica Meyers – Sarasota FL

“I don’t often write testimonials, however, I really felt compelled to write one for Mr. Doug Philips. I’ve worked with a few business coaches over the years that never seemed to produce any lasting formidable results. I’ll start by telling you that I was reluctant to hire another coach until I found out about Doug. After just a few short months of working with him, my business excelled, and so did my quality of life.”

“The results for my family and me have been absolutely amazing! He’ll help you identify your strengths and weaknesses, then come up with both short and long term goals that I guarantee will change your life in all areas. I strongly recommend you consult with Doug if you’re seriously ready to take your business and life to the next level!”

“We began working with Doug Phillips and DOSH Management because my business partners and I realized that we needed to invest in developing our management team into leaders and empower them to contribute to the future success of our organization. Doug has coached each individual, including myself in areas specific and meaningful to each person. Doug’s ability to coach on topics such as effective communication, emotional intelligence, taking initiative, and how to get results has been instrumental in our achieving personal growth, increased productivity and an improvement in employee engagement throughout our organization.

The one thing I appreciate most about Doug is his ability to help others cut through the predictable head trash and maintain focus on the core issue at hand.

I would highly recommend Doug and his team to any business owner who recognizes the need to invest in their people and in turn grow their business.”

Vice President/Owner, Atlas Insurance Agency in Sarasota, FL


“I am pleased to say that I have worked with Doug in another professional capacity for several years and could not be happier with the work has done for me. He is earnest, experienced, honest and validating. In the course of our other work, we almost always turned to the topic of life coaching and the value that it provides anyone, but in particular those of us who are trying to balance a busy work life and a busy family life, both of which could easily take up all the time any day.

My wife and I are very much looking forward to working with Doug to improve the value of our relationships with each other, our children, family, friends as well as the people we work with. I really believe Doug understands how ego interferes with our basic desire and need to connect to other people to enrich their lives as well as to have our lives enriched by theirs.”

“I have known and worked for and with Doug since 1989. There aren’t enough categories that I could write a recommendation for Doug in. He has been a boss, a trainer, mentor, motivator and most importantly, a friend. I knew nothing when I went to work for Doug at Seneca Data back in ‘89. I stayed in contact with him throughout the years after I left. He is always someone with an open ear and a great view of things. I own a successful medical distributorship and leasing company, dabble with a clothing line and beer brewing. Doug has touched all of these things technically and as a sounding board for ideas. He continually makes me think outside the box and pushes me to become a better businessman. Whether we have a scheduled meeting time or just meet up for quick coffee or a beer, I ALWAYS come away with a new insight on one of my businesses or life itself. Thanks buddy.”

“Shari knows business and is able to use her knowledge to positively impact your bottom line! She helped my company and I am thrilled! Shari commits 110% of herself to every project. She becomes part of your team. Don’t be surprised if you receive late night and weekend text messages containing a solution to a problem you’ve been trying to solve. We had a great experience and I highly recommend Shari to any business that wants to grow, become more efficient, or work through a difficult problem.”

Brian Bluff
President & Co-Founder, Site-Seeker, Inc.

“(Shari) I have known you for many years as your company, E-Rate Exchange, handles my school district’s E-Rate applications. I remember meeting you when we hired your company, I was very impressed with you in particular because you really grasped how E-Rate works. I appreciated that you saw an opportunity to create a business that helps guide others through the protracted E-Rate application process.

I can tell you from a public school’s perspective that handling the application and – especially – the follow-though process of E-Rate is a time-consuming and time-sensitive effort;. While the end result can be good, the process is difficult. It has probably been at least ten years, and we are still using E-Rate Exchange. You continue to do an excellent job.

I went on your website, and was impressed to see all you have accomplished and offer through this company. My question as I browsed was, “How does she manage more than one company?” I wondered how, with such a complicated business, you could then pursue other business avenues. Then as I read some of the information on the website, I began to see how you have used the tools described there in your own life; especially empowering others. This must involve training others and trusting them to perform their professional best for the betterment of the company. this not only benefits the company but also the employee. Now I begin to see how you can truly create a win-win situation for yourself, your employees and your businesses! And I’m sure that’s only the tip of the iceberg!

Thank you, Shari, for inspiring me to reach a little further in my own life!

“I am an adjunct professor of English and Communications at both Onondaga Community College, and Morrisville State College. I taught high school for 12 years,
with the goal of eventually teaching at the college level. Three years ago, I had the opportunity to start teaching at OCC, and I love it. But going from a full time job to an adjuncting position was a huge pay cut, so I really wanted to move the position from part time to full time. I just didn’t really have any idea how to get that process started.

That’s where Shari at DOSH Management came in. Shari and I worked together to help me figure out exactly what I wanted out of my career. I realized that the connection with my students was what was most important to me. And a greater connection with the college campus in general was the best way for me to work on getting a full time position. The most beneficial part of the coaching for me was having to check in with someone on a weekly basis. It motivated me to make a to-do list, then actually achieve the things on my list! There was a true sense of accomplishment when I was able to go back to Shari and tell her all of the steps I had taken to further my career in a one week or one month span, instead of making excuses about why I couldn’t possible find the time to accomplish those tasks.

I have already recommended Shari at DOSH Management to a friend attempting to re-enter the job market after children. Shari takes the time to get to know the individual so that she can accurately assist them on their true career path. It is a revelationary experience that allowed me to get a better idea of exactly what I want!

I am moving confidently in the direction of a full time position, and I am now even more
motivated to get involved and work toward my ultimate goal. And I can guarantee that I will be contacting Shari again for the next step in my career. It has been a great experience.”

Carolyn Bice
Professor of English and Communications – OCC & Morrisville State College

“I was so grateful to have Shari’s support and guidance throughout our coaching process. Our conversations allowed me to think about how I might handle a few difficult situations and to think through a reorganizing process. Her empathetic ear and probing questions provided me with new insights and fresh perspective. What an invaluable gift!”

Terry Martinez
Dean of Community Development, Columbia University

“Thank you Shari for your business and personal insights. You have a refreshing, contemporary view of women (and especially women in business) with the ‘old soul’ of someone who’s been in the world/business for a very long time. Your ideas have made me look at things in a very different light..”

Terre Slater
President, Empire Interpreting Service

“Shari has been an inspiration for me both personally and professionally. Not only has she shown me what it means to be a great leader, she has also helped guide me through tough situations that I have had to deal with. As a coach, an employer, and a role model, Shari motivates me to be the best I can be each and every day. I have never met anyone who can balance work and family quite like she can. She has a lot to offer in her role as an executive business coach, and I highly recommend her to anyone who has areas in their life they would like to strengthen or transform.”

“Recently, Doug Phillips became my personal “Life Coach”. Prior to that, I was skeptical as to weather or not I really needed a coach. I always felt that I could fix everything myself. But, over the past several years, that mind set hasn’t been working out so well. I am truly glad that I made a choice to reach out for some guidance and that Doug accepted me as a client. Doug has been open, reflective and non judgemental. He has held me accountable to complete certain action items within agreed upon time lines. Usually, when problems arise in both our business and personal lives, we already posess the answer. But, that answer,or the correct course of action, is often burried in doubt or clouded by uncerttainty. Doug was able to skillfully ask the correct questions. He moved the clouds and handed me a shovel. He was able to suggest a twist on my approach and offer other solutions based upon his perspective. I would highly reccomend that you talk to Doug Phillips.”

Marc T.
President, Commercial Vehicle Solutions

“The time I have spent working with Doug over the last year and a half has been incredible. His unrelenting focus on positive thinking, honesty, and the importance of possibilities is a huge benefit to any personal or professional environment. He has helped me maintain a concentration on moving forward, and finding the best solution in any situation. It is incredibly gratifying to work with someone who understands the direct relationship between personal and professional growth, and encourages both on a daily basis.”

“Doug Phillips is a supportive and motivating coach. He has helped me evolve and reach new heights in both my professional and personal life. I have built confidence and achieved happiness thanks to his mentoring. His coaching has become a priceless part of my life that I look forward to and I can’t imagine not having in my life. I believe I have a better, brighter future thanks to his inspiration and motivation of me reaching for my goals and dreams.”

“I’ve had the privilege of working with Doug over the last 2+ years as a performance coach. A sign of a great teacher or coach is that they are great students and coachable. Doug is very coachable and is truly committed to helping others achieve their goals in business in life. He has a big heart and yet at the same time can speak to clients with candor to help them work through their limiting beliefs. I recommend Doug as a coach to help others break through to reach their goals.”

Ron P.
Owner, Performance University

“Working with Doug as my coach has made a tremendous impact on both my personal and professional life. He has shown me how awareness can transform my life, and it truly has! He has also given me tools and knowledge that give me the ability to overcome obstacles, and help me to improve and maintain the relationships in my life. I look forward to continuing to work with Doug as my coach, the journey has only just begun!”

He is someone you can always count on when you need to go the extra mile.”

Kevin C.
CEO, Seneca Data

“I had the great pleasure of working with Doug and Shari in their role as business advisors. The experience was fantastic! Their keep it real and no nonsense approach enabled us to quickly resolve issues and implement several important changes.

While many consultants advise from afar, Doug and Shari are not afraid to dig in, get to the root cause of a problem, figure out a solution, and monitor the results to determine it’s effectiveness.

I highly recommend Doug and Shari to any company or person that wants change or is pursuing a goal.”
