"I wanted to take a moment to express my upmost gratitude and thankfulness to Jerry Combs and Dr. Scott Parkhurst for what they did for me through Lifetime Guidance. I was in a dead-end job with very little opportunity to grow. I met Jerry in a small group setting one evening with some mutual friends and he shared what he did through Lifetime Guidance. After much consideration, I decided to give him a call. Our first meeting was excellent. Jerry encouraged me to be open and honest with not only him, but most importantly myself. After three meetings with Jerry and one including Dr. Scott, we decided to update my resume and tailor it towards where I want to go, not where I was before. Long story short, not only did I receive a new job after just one interview, but the job was much greater than I could have ever imagined. I'm not saying that Lifetime Guidance has the magic concoction that will get you any job you want. What I am saying is the time and energy that Mr. Jerry Combs and Dr. Scott Parkhurst shred with me (and every client they have) allowed me to believe in myself and to realize my full potential.
Thank you Lifetime Guidance for allowing me to visualize a new path, believe in myself, and achieve new personal and professional levels of success."
My friend Ty Zabel is a mentor and role model to me as Director of Forgiven Skate church, a registered 501c3 ministry serving the Action Sports Community in Oklahoma City, OK. We are sharing the Gospel with this community in the hopes that they will come to know Christ and that we can help build disciples and change the culture from within.
I have been trying to figure a way to create a business to generate the income needed to leave my day job to lead the ministry full time. I spoke about it with Ty because I have no prior business experience. He wanted to make sure I was on the correct path which led to the introductions of Jerry Combs and Joe Sugg.
Mind you, God has been leading me on this journey. So, when I say these guys really care about the success of their mentees, I mean it. Joe poured into me and gave me the best discouraging encouragement I have ever received. The thoughts I had were so far overreaching due to my day job as a network engineer. Joe encouraged me to draw out the dream and Vision Plan first, taking me through the thought process and sharing the steps to making goals attainable.
"Lifetime Guidance and Jerry specifically went so fast in resolving our student recruitment issue at Visible Music College that it was completed before we even had a complete strategy in place. Taking the slimmest of information from us, Jerry took actions that led to resolution of a months long ordeal with agencies that were delaying valued assets from the college. We are grateful for the fast response of Lifetime Guidance."
"Through their passion and dedication to serve those around them, Jerry and Dr. Scott offer a service that goes beyond that of simply building a professional document. Each meeting with them provides an opportunity to dive into your professional identity from a new perspective, taking the time to discuss the best approach to help you move forward. Their thoughtful listening supports a mutual dialogue, encouraging you to recognize that your ability to find success and fulfillment was always there; Jerry and Dr. Scott are simply helping you rediscover it. I can’t thank them enough for the insight and direction they have given me so that I can be confident about how I present myself as a professional."
"I first met Jerry and Scott in 2018 at a music business seminar in Nashville. At that seminar I was assigned for a chance to talk to a random selection of mentors, which luckily, mine were Jerry and Scott from Lifetime Guidance. From the moment I sat down at the table with them I felt confident, like we were destined to meet. We chatted for a bit and in the end, they agreed to mentor me. Throughout the following months until now, they continue to show me new ways to not only improve myself not only as recording artist, but as a person as well. Assuring me that my skills and strength don’t come from me, but from God. They push me to get out of my comfort zone and change the way I look at the world around me, be that business, music, or just life in general.
What they’ve taught me this far will be with me for the rest of my life and I could only hope to gain more from them. They are pure hearted and set on helping you improve in any way they can, while also making you feel like family and that is the most important thing they could have given me."
"Jerry has been a close friend and mentor of mine for several years. Running a management company and directing the careers of artists is my daily life. There are very few people who have impressed me with the guidance they give people. There are even less people I trust enough to speak into my life. Jerry Combs is one of those people. He has a great mind, a compassionate heart, and is creatively firm enough in his approach to make sure the wisdom he shares is heard and taken to heart. He is a person that goes beyond just helping you find a path, but leads you to a greater understanding of your gifts and purpose."
"Lifetime guidance did an amazing job of supporting and guiding me through a transitional season in my life. Through the sessions together I feel encouraged and empowered to walk in my God given calling."
"I met Jerry Combs at a Men's Group meeting in Columbia, TN. I had been out of work for nearly three years and was ready to return to the work force. As well as being a disabled veteran, I had been a chemical engineer working in nuclear materials processing and environmental remediation for 14 years prior to being sidelined with illness from which I was not expected to recover. My career ended, my marriage ended and my Independence was gone. Yet, I did recover my health.
After about six months of remission, I accepted the victory God had laid before me. At this time, I met Jerry, another present at the hand of God. The timing was perfect and in God's hands. My interactions with Jerry in redeveloping my resume (I had to start from scratch, as old files had been lost) were incredible. In the process, Jerry helped me reach in and pull out the confident and competent engineer that I had been and set him on display. It was as if everything I had been through had enshrouded me in doubt, burying my professional self-assuredness and confidence.
I was a distant memory to myself. Jerry and Dr. Scott helped me to withdraw that shroud. I carried that into my first interview, and that first interview resulted in an offer. It was an offer I accepted, as it was a very, very good offer. I start my new job in a week and a half in Oak Ridge, TN. I highly recommend Lifetime Guidance."
"I was just thinking today and was reminded of the encouragement and wisdom I received from you and Scott, and wanted to let you know that I appreciated it. Thank you for being part of that weekend. I trust things are going well with your business as you impact people for God's glory!"
"Jerry & Dr. Scott are two very intelligent individuals who put their thorough, analytical views to help grow and uplift others. Between the two of them there is an immense amount of diverse work and personal life experience, along with a heart for helping others become the best versions of themselves, that no matter what your needs are they will be able to help you identify the barriers and struggles in your life and aid in constructing a plan, both emotionally and physically to overcome them.
A word of advice, make sure to be humble and honest. Don't let pride or fear get in the way of growth and opportunity. Jerry & Dr. Scott are tremendous resources, worth every penny, every meeting, and every moment."
