“Just had my first mentoring session with Ron Sidman and I’m extremely pleased. I realize that I can achieve that next level with Ron’s valuable and candid information and suggestions. It’s very difficult to navigate the “manufacturing waters” while there is no chart to follow. Mr. Sidman quickly put me at ease with his warm and thoughtful responses to my questions.”
