“So, he (Dave Ellis) is not an advisor. He's not telling you what to do. What I feel is that you have capacity within yourself, but you never test those buttons that you have. So he brings out your own capacity or you discover your own capacity. You become an explorer of yourself.” Read his entire testimonial.
