Lou was the hit of our conference! Each year we bring in our construction crews to review safety and other programs. As our keynote speaker, Lou held their attention and made them laugh; a tough task with this group. Very pleased and will invite him back.

First phone contact AND subsequent, in-person, one-hour session with Michelle Hannah was outstanding. She is polite, courteous, promptly responsive to your queries, professional, yet friendly, warm, inspiring, and NATURALLY vibrant, positive, and energetic. She is also sincere and authentic - what I truly respect. And she demonstrated her expertise immediately. I was thoroughly impressed. She is excellent at honing in right on my target desires and goals (be these implicit or explicit), and mirrors and articulates well my objectives. She also is very good at obtaining clarity from me on any issues or points that are relevant to my objectives. This indicates to me that she is listening very well, and accurately, and is responsible to not misunderstand or assume/presume what I feel, think, or mean to say. In doing so, I feel that I am clearly heard by her. As such, she recognizes nuances that may either hinder or help me as I proceed forward. Terrific communication skills, and which do not feel forced or mechanical. She's fluid AND precise in how she communicates. In her emphasis on the pragmatic, she quickly, effectively, and clearly breaks down my larger goals into realistic, do-able, non-intimidating chunks. This so that I will have a better chance at experiencing the positive re-inforcement of my having actually completed my step-by-step goals. Instead of feeling bogged down and discouraged, this gets me moving out of 'stuckness' and stagnation. (Getting unstuck is difficult to do on one's own, when it comes to particularly sticky or stubborn issues. Including counter-productive ones that I've been tolerating for too long and to my detriment. So, Ms. Hannah's positive 'shake-up' activates me in the best ways, and in alignment with what is best in me.) In her non-judgmental and compassionate way, Ms. Hannah affected my energy, my outlook, and my confidence immediately and for the better. And she did this without hype or false or artificial means, but in substantive and real ways (and matching what I feel about my true core self). I feel that, with Ms. Hannah, my life situation and desired goals are genuinely validated. Terrific to feel that I have someone in my corner, in a healthy, productive way. Just invaluable. She is also well organized. I was impressed with the introductory worksheets she asked me to fill out, before our first session, and the realistic, do-able homework she gave me to complete before our next session. She understands the importance of positive momentum, as do I. Accordingly, I appreciated her recommendation that I schedule my next session not more than 9-10 days after the first one. I told her ahead of time that that's the kind of accountability I want and need, to keep me on track with my goals at this early stage. In my estimation, Ms. Hannah went above and beyond for my first session. That said, I will not take her generosity of investment for granted. In fact, it's part of what motivates me to meet my goals: valuing her time and my time, and what we put into the work together, as client and coach. As I see it, this is not unlike an athlete who's inspired to do well, not just for herself but in appreciation of her coach's efforts as well. She also works with a partner-coach whose business/finance background will be very helpful to some of my goals as well. But the partner-coach is not involved with my private sessions with Ms. Hannah. Those, I presume, would be separate sessions on an as-needed basis. A great complementary choice for a client to have. The only area of improvement I would suggest, thus far, is that Ms. Hannah provide her office address on her initial intake material, once a client hires her. A simple, practical item of information.

I would highly recommend Ray Howard for your next event. Whether its speaking or singing, Ray Howard is a true professional. Ray has sang at our events many times and was a favorite at our retreat as a motivational speaker and combing his music in between his message. Ray is an entertainer and professional that is well received by the audience. It is a pleasure and an honor to recommend Ray Howard. ~ Laurie Jepsen, Southern California Single+Passion Ministries

I started working with Brandon earlier this year and it's been a truly amazing experience. For some background, I've worked with a number of trainers in the past and none have lasted more than a month or two. I always get bored and lose motivation, or just think I can do it better on my own. Brandon and his trainers are different. It's not just about the hour spent working out, it's a really wholistic approach to health, fitness and achieving your goals. Brandon will send menu suggestions, check in multiple times during the week, send motivational emails and continue to provide support even during setbacks. He doesn't judge and truly cares about making a difference. I could write a whole review talking about how much stronger I've become, the definition in my abs, glutes, etc..but that wouldn't really do justice to what training with Brandon (and his trainers) are all about. If you're looking for a partner to support, motivate and kick your butt, you won't go wrong with B!

Kathleen and I connected as Chapman University alumni, and she was a great guest on my podcast/YouTube series, What the Flow! She's super friendly, knowledgeable in her field, and she knows how to communicate her experience with an audience. Working with Kathleen was not only a pleasure it was also inspirational.

I was blown away with how talented and successful Margie as an artist and motivational speaker. Learning about her back ground in the music industry and how her pathway to get where she is today was quite intriguing and highly motivating. She has performed and worked with top people known in the industry and has been paid to perform and speak all over the world. She really has the it factor you see on TV. She is very personable, likeable and beautiful. These elements shine through in her music and speaking. I love everything about her as a musician and the kind person she is on and off stage. I loved how she said "success isn't followed after fame, fortune or status but is obtained through a thought of daily gratitude for the opportunities and blessings you have been given" I loved this quote and wrote it down to remember. Thank you again Margie for your inspiring words and music.

I have used Michael's services for my own professional development, for that of my staff and as a consultant at our organization. He is very personable and relatable while maintaining the highest level of professionalism. Michael offered sound insights, identified issues and helped us plan for success without pointing out failings or putting us on the defensive. As a speaker, Michael uses his time appropriately, keeps things moving, plenty of laughs and great information. He comes with my highest recommendation.

I am so glad I connected with Catherine for my public speaking concerns because she made all the difference in the world in helping me gain confidence, connect with the audience and the content of my speech. In fact, I originally needed help in speech content and my delivery in order to get a promotion I passed up awhile back, due to my lack of speaking skills. Because of Catherine’s insight to motivation, and her skill in determining a person's development of content suited to my specific topics, I made a huge impression on my colleagues and apparently my supervisor in the accounting office I work at. Many thanks, Catherine, to your patience and guidance to set me apart from all the others with my unique personality in speaking and presenting. And now, I have tremendous confidence! Kimberly W.

One of the most powerful aspects of working with Sepideh is her commitment to playing the game of life full out and with an open heart! The level of Fun, Joy and Excitement that she embodies everyday is ruly inspiring. After a short time, with her guidance I was able to authentically cultivate and bring forward similar inspired states of being within myself. Her kind and unconditionally loving presence made me feel at ease so I was able to honestly communicate about the challenging circumstances I was going through. Her vast knowledge of Spiritual Psychology, powerful coaching techniques and a beautiful heart-centered awareness is what really allowed me to feel into what I was experiencing. Specifically, what made a difference for me is that she was really THERE, patiently holding space for the transformation to occur. She has a diverse coaching skill set and a consciousness that holds and challenges you to work through your own unique process in a beautiful way. My results include personal transformations, new levels of spiritual evolution and a greater feeling of self-love after each and every session.

April Fletcher has a natural openness to conversing by listening gently at depth and then sharing ideas infused with her personal experience/knowledge/touch. She waits and listens; listens with care from the beginning to the end until the speaker has clearly finished delivering their thought/question/mind. You can feel her listening. The majority of listeners, without being aware, are often caught with their own concern, and therefore in many situations do not fully engage with the speaker's. I have known April for over ten years; her creative listening and definite communication/teaching skills continue to fascinate and excite me. She always has a fresh vibrant offering that keeps bringing me back to her for more enlightenment. Goh Kurosawa International touring artist / Producer of Brilliant Strings / ComposeLife.com
