         Stories of our impact

“I just want to let you know that I have successfully gotten a job as a Business analyst with ASDA who is part of Walmart team in the UK. Your advice and encouragement have made this possible. I am very grateful that I met you and for all your support you have given me and all your patience. Thank you for pushing me this far. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart and I pray God's grace and His blessings shine on you and your family. Thank you so much once more.”

Bridget Uwoni - United Kingdom

"Jerry was an amazing mentor to me right out of college and helped me with resume review and also to gain an overall understanding of where I wanted to go in my career path and how to acheive it through his professional services. He went above and beyond in helping me network and meet individuals who had worked in various industries. These individuals, along with Jerry, provided me with advice, direction and potential career opportunities. If you are looking to develop your career, change careers or align your career with your personal goals/beliefs, I would highly recommend Jerry."

Brooke Qilafi - Atlanta, GA / Account Executive at 5W Public Relations

"I met Jerry four years ago. It was when Covid started and I began to realize how much I needed a job change. When we first spoke I was telling him how I was feeling discouraged, depressed, and useless. He took time to listen and by the end of the conversation I was feeling more positive because of the kind words. I had a lot of great job experience and was having a difficult time getting everything on one page. After some lengthy conversation he was able to redo my resume with perfect accuracy. I especially liked the logos he included on the resume for each of the schools I was employed at. I was very satisfied with the final resume. After a year or so I called him again to get copies of my resume and to make some slight changes. He made those changes quickly and didn’t charge me. Not only is he great at his craft he is a genuine person who has no personal agenda. He’s just good."

Lauren Siegel - Spring Hill, TN

"I had been looking for a new job for several years before working with Lifetime Guidance. I was in a dead-end job for years, not making enough to provide for a family, and felt like I was the worst job seeker in the world. I had read all the books, applied for jobs, interviewed, had my resume professionally done, paid for services, and still had zero job offers. When I finally started working with Lifetime Guidance, I was beyond frustrated. The team at Lifetime Guidance helped coach me through the process, helped me find my true vocational passions, worked to understand my needs and desires, and helped me write an incredible resume. Almost immediately after working with them, I found my dream job, which literally doubled my income. I can honestly say, I would not have gotten this amazing job without working with the team at Lifetime Guidance. I’ve referred friends to them and shared my testimony with many."

Jeremiah Skuya - Nashville, TN

"Thanks Jerry to you and Lifetime for helping me. I am a better worker and person and always looking for ways to better myself. Thanks to you and your team."

Ferd Hamilton Snow - Nashville, TN

"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 shared 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."

Aaron Kolarich - Columbia, TN

"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."

Dr. Ken Steorts, President - Visible Music College - Memphis, TN

"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."

Thompson Deufel - Chicago, IL

"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."

Crusif - Recording Artist - Pretoria, South Africa

"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."

Ryan McMahan - CEO, RSK Music Group - Nashville,TN

"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."

Amy - Recording Artist - England

"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."

Richard - Safety Basis/Technical Services Engineer - Columbia, TN

"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!"

Amy - Memphis, TN

"Jerry and 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. 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."

Robert Biehn - Murfreesboro, TN
