Latest Review: With our busy schedule and two pre-k kids, my husband and I had little time for a wedding. Mr. Pollack was very understanding and cheerful about our bizarre choice of Chuck E Cheese as a venue! He was able to schedule us quickly and kept in contact with us throughout the whole process. I feel that his happy spirit made our interesting ceremony that much more fun! Thank you so much!

Latest Review: Bill officiated our wedding on September 6th 2015 at the Wedgewood Wedding and Banquet Center in San Clemente. Bill was personable and flexible before and after the wedding. Because we live in Northern CA we were pretty far from the wedding site as well as from Bill; however, we had a constant communication stream and a couple of opportunities to communicate online via Skype and over the phone. Bill helped us create our vows and customize the ceremony speech by providing us with several samples and his guidance. He also offered to print our vows and have them at the ceremony, which was a great idea, guaranteeing that we would have those available the day of ceremony. During the rehearsal Bill was punctual and very attentive, making sure every detail was well planned. Overall we are very thankful to have had such a professional and personable officiant who customized our ceremony and who was there for us to help us all the way.

Latest Review: I'm currently working with Eric to gain strength and flexibility (and improve my overall health). He has been great! I've been seeing him twice a week for about a month, and look forward to continuing training with him. A couple of things that I really appreciate about Eric and his training sessions: - He was courteous of my budget from the start and let me know what was realistic to do within my budget - He explains every exercise in detail (proper form, where you should feel muscles working, how a spotter would interact with the client). This is important for me, because being a girl and not growing up in a gym I had no clue where to even begin. So this is laying a good foundation for the long run even beyond our training sessions together. Also, it makes the client feel more comfortable when they know in advance where the spotter will be assisting at all times. - Eric is always on time. Even at 5:30 AM. He has a client before me at 4:30 AM and is there for that too. - He's been very kind and flexible when I have to travel for work and is willing to adjust the days that we meet so that I still get my two sessions a week in. - He is looking out for you in the long run. There are so many times that I feel discouraged because I can't quite complete a set or my form isn't right because I get tired. He is always quick to remind me that those things come in time as I build up strength. And it's true-- each time I can do a few more and do it better than before. He sets realistic goals and knows that things do not come over night and he wants you to realize that too. Overall, I'm really pleased with how things have been going. It's not a fast process for some of us, but since first beginning I have seen that I have improved in strength and that my body is shaping up. He's a great guy and knows what he is doing. I appreciate that he uses a style that incorporates basic weight lifting and body strength exercises, things that I could realistically do at home or a gym to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Thanks Eric!

Latest Review: Jessica was so helpful and awesome! She initially got back to us very quickly, and was so flexible and helpful with helping us figure out a place to have our ceremony (we planned our ceremony short notice only 2 days ahead of time). The ceremony was very nice! I couldn't have asked for a better wedding officiant.

Latest Review: This is the second time I have hired Mark. He has wired and hung a chandelier, two large mirrors, fixed my doorbell and painted my fireplace. He can do most and is very conscientious, neat,and reasonable.

Latest Review: Being in charge of a unique Adventure Education Facility (NPO), I was skeptical of Michael's ability to offer valuable insight that would be applicable to our facility - since we do not operate like your typical camp. After sharing my concerns with Michael, he chuckled and began to share with me his incredibly diverse and eclectic background. Needless to say, my concerns were alleviated and we moved forward with a site visit. Michael was extremely friendly and reassuring in person. During our facility walk through he asked very good questions (some of which I did not know the answer to.) and showed a genuine interest in the facility and creative options for generating new revenue. After a long and informative discussion about our facility, I was still full of questions, so I asked Michael if I could take him to dinner and pick his brain a little more (boy did I get the better end of that deal!). At dinner Michael was able to introduce me to / put me in contact with several of his local colleagues from the ACA, and various other organizations, which have been an INVALUABLE resource!!! Within a week of the consultation, Michael sent us an extremely detailed report on potential options and suggestions for our facility, along with some incredible resources on maintaining staff, and trainings. UPDATE: It has been roughly six months since our original consultation, and after implementing several of Michael suggestions (especially those related to networking). I am pleased to say that we have booked 3 new schools for year long programs, are now partnered with local colleges as a staffing resource, and have implemented several new academic programs that have been a huge hit with the kids! Thank you Michael for all that you do! -Lenny Yurgin, Executive Director of Colorado Adventure Point

Latest Review: Couldn’t ask for more… My wife and I had so much to think about with our wedding planning (which we did on our own) hiring an officiant was just another thing to stress about, until we hired David. David made us feel very at ease and confident, so much so that we let him have full autonomy on what he was going to say (he even did our vows for us, since we didn’t want to do them on our own). He kept it to the basic parameters we set… not too long, entertaining for everybody, and of course in good taste, and as I mentioned earlier we couldn’t ask for more. Even after the ceremony was over, he MC’d our reception and did an amazing job. Many people even approached us afterward to tell us how much they enjoyed the ceremony, and were shocked when we told them he came up with all of it on his own.
