Kevin understood my level of comfort and he gave me a safe place to voice if I could or could not accomplish the goals set. He put the goals in writing and gave me the hope of accomplishing the tasks ahead. Just being accountable to someone helps prevent being stuck in my own emotions, knowing someone cares about my success and is willing to walk beside me to accomplish forward progression.
