Mark and I worked together closely for the last three years. Mark has outstanding insight into the lives of others. He has great compassion and is a good listener, but he also is able to go beyond these and provide a genuine therapeutic touch. He is a person of great integrity and that shows in all he does. He also is able to help people with very practical strategies. He is not afraid to challenge someone to be true to the directions they want to follow and and need to follow. He directly challenged me a number of months ago to stop talking about and start investigating something that I had mentioned several times as a possibility in my life. His challenge helped me to take the steps I needed and I am very glad now that I did. Mark is very bright and insightful. He is an excellent communicator at personal and public levels. He is creative and innovative. He is also trustworthy and safe to speak to. I am grateful that having journeyed together with Mark for these last years that I now consider him a close, wise, trusted friend.
Mike was outstanding! He spoke to our group in Birmingham, Alabama and he was a true inspiration to me and the rest of the organization. If you need an exceptional speaker that will motivate and wow the crowd, Mike is the man for the job. A wonderful human being and someone that has impacted my life.
I decided that I wanted to train for my first fitness competition and knew I needed all the help I could get. before even training, Jaron met with me to go over my goals and his plan for me. What I like about training with him is that it's fun but we also work hard! He's extremely encouraging and always answers the many questions I have. He's helped me most with my eating. I've failed a couple of times in the process but he's been there to re-evaluate for what my needs are. He's also been great in motivating me to stick to the plan/process. I'm excited to see the results of the hard work that's been put in.
Steve is an awesome speaker. He gave the commencement speech at my graduation and kept the audience laughing and engaged. He is truly an inspiration to many. Steve has ability to inspire the audience and keep them captivated. Can't wait to hear him speak again.
When I starting looking for a coach, I wanted someone who was going to give me a nudge in the right direction. I did not want to pay someone who was going to just sit and listen. I needed motivation and encouragement. This is exactly what Dorcas did. She gave me education to think, insight to consider, and a push in the right direction; more than enough for me to fly in my own direction. Dorcas does not intend to be my coach forever, rather she want to coach me for now so I can fly on my own later.
Very detail and goal oriented. I believe Coach Hall is a perfect match for me
Hi, I'm a very very busy individual who spends the majority of the time in a day either at work full time (8 to 12 hours), being a full time parent, or finding time to spend with my wife. It's definitely a challenge at times to juggle these things, find time for yourself and find time to workout as well. So, when I came across Dominique's workout program it definitely grab my attention. I was in need of something challenging, motivational, something that would hold me accountable, provide nutritional guidance, and the best part is I was able to do it all from the comfort of my own home. This helped me out tremendous! I was home with my family and I was able to still find the time to spend with my wife and kids, but more importantly I'm getting the best results I've gotten in years! I was over weight hating life and really had no time to workout. Thank you so much Dominique for your attention to detail, your patience, and your dedication to MY GOALS! I can't wait to reach the next step in my fitness journey. So, once again, thank you Dominique your freaking phenomenal!
Ray helped me with some old habits I couldn't seem to get rid of: excessive drinking and binge eating. He also helped me with grief from the loss of my son. I've had counseling before, but with the hypnosis that Ray does, it made it so easy to make the changes I had been trying to make for years with limited success. I was so impressed with his ability to focus on what the real issues were. Seeing Ray was definitely one of the best decisions I've ever made.
I have used Vibrant Living Coaching personally, professionally and as a couple. One session with Daniela is equal to 10 traditional counseling. Her unique techniques moved me quickly through my issues. I would highly recommend Vibrant Living Coaching to anyone who is open to non-traditional methods and who want to move through their issues quickly.

She has most definitetly been blessed with a wonderful talent!

Don uplifted our sales team and gave them specific ideas they can apply immediately to boost their sales. He did this in a very fun and inspiring way. Loved his stories. He is great to work with and always does more than you expect. How he customized his program just for our group really made the difference. He's a real pro, knows what he's talking about, and has a wonderfully way of connecting with his audience.
Say it Better Now’s speaker/trainer Gamal Alexander, is an awesome public speaker. He has spoken for two events that I have hosted and both audiences have been moved by his presentation.

“’Leah O’Brien Amico is the most dynamic, engaging, and motivating speaker with whom I have ever had the privilege of working. Her versatility, knowledge, and passion allow her to relate and connect with every audience or group. I have had Leah speak and lead clinics in a variety of settings over the past 8 years. Whether it be 700 high school softball players and coaches, 500 middle and high school athletes of all sports, or 50 moms and grandmothers, Leah has a gift of inspiring and encouraging each one. Rarely do you find anyone who has achieved so much in a sports career (3 Olympic Gold Medals), who is also genuine and strong in their faith, and able to touch all audiences in such a real and powerful way. I highly recommend Leah for any group!” Kaye O’Sullivan FCA Director of Women’s Ministry Spartanburg, SC
I like telling people that I am a professional weirdo, because of the line of work that I have chosen, not only as an ordained minister but also as Kahuna. I write daily, blogs, books and as part of the Yahoo! Contributor Network, and of course, The Mana'o Blog, which is sort of an online "school" for those of us who just need things spiritual and weird brought to them in an easier than "guru" manner. I am an advocate for victims and survivors of domestic abuse, and in that manner, again, I write, I reach out, I offer support and advice when asked for. An expert about how victims and survivors can heal from the pain of their lives, I also speak publicly, not only to groups of people within my community, but also to the community of practicing clergy who need dearly to impart the wisdom to the young people who they marry that abuse, while we hope it never happens, is a possibility. As well, I am starting this year to speak to groups at the high school level, and eventually I hope to speak to more and varied audiences about this ugliness called domestic violence. My thought is that if I can help just one person understand what the real reality is of being someone's victim, that I have done my job well enough to help that one person change their lives. It just takes one person who has been there, who has gone through what they have, and who ultimately survived it all. In that same manner, and while it is that I teach hula in the traditional sense, my main reason for it these days is to teach other abuse survivors whose own level of self-awareness, of self-love, and whose own thought about their own beauty is not what it should be. I teach other survivors, mostly women ranging in age from 25 and up, how to show themselves how beautiful they really are, all through this dance which has served me with so much for the majority of my 44 years on this planet that one dance is hula. There is nothing quite more awesome to me than to see women who believe themselves to be broken see before their own eyes the metamorphosis not only of who they are in the eyes of the world, but more of who they are in the eyes of the most important person in their lives their very selves. I also teach and am available to teach classes for young adults and teens for the purposes of teaching them, through hula, how to keep their own level of self where it needs to be which is really that we all need to know how beautiful we really all are, and that no matter who says what, our own opinion of our own selves is what is most important, because other people tune into that energy and read and trust that it is the truth of us. My job, essentially, is to help other people, mainly women, to know the truth about who they are and who we all are the most beautiful set of people on the planet. All we really need to do is believe it.
It's simple, I love it, I live it. I don't play Vince Lombardi, I am Vince Lombardi. When Ray Nitzche, the great middle linebacker, who played for Vince said after seeing my presentation. "The Son Of A Bitch is still alive!"
With over 8 years experience with working with teens and young adults and having published my dissertation and extensively studying coaching models, positive psychology, and social psychology, I have developed the needed tools to motivate, empower, and co-create action plans for meaningful changes in young lives.
I am personable and I have vast experience in a variety of fields, industries and organizations.
