Honestly I had no idea I was working with him! I had seemed his service in requesting help with my health and with my career. I was instantly drawn to him and felt like I could open up with him! I can’t say it was an easy route bc by far it wasn’t! This experience has been by far one of the hardest obstacles I’ve ever had to encounter! I’ve been back in school and pretty much training myself through the whole process or at least it felt like I was alone struggling to make this happen but I’m now realizing that I have a whole Network of people on my side! You guys have given me what they call tough Love! I feel like a renewed & young again (speaking of mentally!) LoL I am just getting started! Have a whole life ahead of me! I’ll never be done learning! Always be helping, contributing, giving, achieveing and being all I can be! If for some reason I fail at a job I’ll still have my children and my children are the most important thing in this world to me! I’ve lost my twin sister years back and my life has been downward since then! John , thank you for that tough Loving! They are the reason I’ve changed! I thank God everyday for helping me to overcome my issues I once had! I look forward to coaching right along side of John! We all need to start helping one another even the small things can make a huge difference ! Anyone like to join in on change?! All is welcome! I’d like to thank all of those that were involved! God Bless each and everyone of you! To everyone’s success! Few others I’d like to mention , Palm beach Research Group, Marketers Traders Institute, Social Security, NBC, CBS, Funnel X Project, Go Daddy,Click Bank, Sen,.....there’s many many more! Forgive me in advance to those I haven’t mentioned. Once again God Bless I love you all! Together we can...CHANGE
As a business owner and CEO most of my professional career, it is difficult to find someone who can cut through all the BS and get down to the core...my core...what drives me...what has held me back? What is the one thing that has been missing? Lea Goldenring helped me find those answers. She is very engaging and creates a very safe healthy environment in which to do some very productive work. I got more out of a few sessions with her than any of the many self help / self improvement books I have read. If you really want to take up your game, Lea is the "real deal" and is a pleasure to work with...Highly recommended!
I am so glad I took the opportunity to meet with Julianne about my nutrition goals. I have been all over the place with my eating & really wanted to pin down something that would work for me, my goals, and my lifestyle and schedule. One of the main things I wanted to address was my eczema, Julianne was able to tell me what changes I should make and why, and also made a lot of easy swaps and recommendations. I loved trying the different foods she recommended and in just a couple weeks have been able to see a difference. I was skeptical at first, but I really see the results of following the helpful advice she gave me. I really like that Julianne lives the lifestyle, because she is so locked into different blogs, movies, and information that she shares and which helps make transitioning into a different style of eating easier. I really liked being able to speak to Julianne about my goals, she created a really useful set of meals for me to cook, which really helped me get my feet off the ground. In a short time I've already been able to incorporate some of those meals into my life, and have been happily surprised by how delicious everything is. Being a nurse I really liked being able to learn why certain things were better for my body. I learned a lot through working with Julianne and highly recommend her. I feel like I have a better handle on my nutrition goals, and a really good path to get there. She is so encouraging about incorporating healthy habits and to just let go of being really hard on myself, which I appreciated.
Melissa's enthusiasm and positivity is infectious and present in everything she brings to the table. She's helped me question and think deeply about what I truly want in life, in both my career and my well being. She's pushed me outside of my comfort zone, and I've grown immensely. I highly recommend Melissa for anyone who is at a crossroads about their future!
I've been working with Conrad Sherby of Life Sherpa Fitness for more than 2 years and find my weekly sessions with him a true highlight of every week. The gym where he practices is clean and uncrowded and reserved only for trainers with clients. It's a positive place where the trainers and clients are all respectful, happy, and working on their various goals. Conrad is a rare gem of a trainer, although the term "trainer" doesn't begin to cover what he offers! He is truly gifted and fully oriented to helping his clients achieve whatever health/fitness goals they want; heck, if you're not sure of your goals, he'll help you by asking the right questions, getting to know you and your habits, and figuring out plans with you. As you continue your teamwork, Conrad frequently adjusts the trajectory of your workouts and recommendations for you as your body or life events change (eg, you get stronger, you're injured, you're overly stressed from a poor work-life balance, your life has too little happiness at the moment, and so on!). Conrad also has a myriad of excellent referrals for you to increase your wellness, for example, to a massage therapist or gifted yoga instructor. Conrad gave me a reference to my new-favorite cookbook, too. As a true educator, he also will send you interesting and helpful videos, articles, or links to apps you may benefit from. We've even gone on weekend hikes with a small group together--just for fun and camaraderie while exploring something new. Conrad could easily have chosen to become a doctor, neuroscientist, teacher at any level, psychologist/counselor, among others, but it speaks to his passion that he chose what drives him the most: a career as a health/happiness/wellness/mindfulness coach using his large base of knowledge, his passion for science-based information, his innate ability to "get" people, and his orientation toward helping others attain a healthy life that works within their life patterns. He has tremendous patience and never judges others; plus, in between sessions, he will even text you to see how that new "habit" is going (eg, "how's the stretching going during the work day?" "Did you have a chance to step away from the computer and take a walk this week?"). I cannot recommend him highly enough--you deserve a try with Conrad to increase your levels of happiness and overall wellness.
Rachel is very experienced and very professional. Loved everything about my session, so helpful, resourceful and full of wisdom. Some eye opening feedback and priceless advice for my career planning and life advice at the time of transition and stress. I felt inspired and empowered. I can't wait to more sessions with her and will be recommending her to friends and family! Thanks Rachel!
I have had the pleasure of coaching with Summer Simonton regarding my career successes. She "gets" people and life's challenges right away and has been able to quickly guide me down the right path each time. I continue to rely on her coaching and always will. Carole Browne
I've searched for years for a therapist that felt like a good fit and Dania was just what I was looking for! Her ability to help me think in new ways has helped me grow and navigate some challenging transitions in my life. Dania's professionalism, open minded attitude, flexibility and insight is exactly what I was searching for.
Nicole played a big role in my career development. My issues have been trying to focus on what I want to do and how to do it, and working with Nicole on those issues put me on the right path for success. What I love about Nicole is that she forces you to see the big picture, ask yourself the hard (but necessary) questions, and then identify the steps to reach your goals. I look forward to using Nicole again when I need to navigate life and career changes, which I anticipate will reduce my fear of making those changes, knowing I have her in my back pocket.
Carrie helped me through some blocks I had with a career change. She is very positive and a great support. I will use her again if I ever need a push in the right direction!
KT's healing and manifestation techniques are fast, effective and powerful. I sought out theta healing to help me release strong emotions during a time of transition and grief. After our session I felt light and empowered. My wish for a new meaningful job was manifested within a few weeks, and every day I feel more aligned to my life path. I highly recommend KT as a theta healing practitioner.
I have been seeing Emily for life coaching for a month - I'm working on sorting out some career and relationship challenges. We've been meeting over the phone when I travel and at a quiet coffee shop when I'm in town. Emily's communication is really wonderful. Sometimes the sessions feel emotionally difficult - and Emily is supportive of my journey. She's never judgmental. She asks deep questions. In my time with Emily I've made progress. I feel better about where I am. I'm really thankful for this great service she offers.
Cynthia worked with me as a life coach for a couple months. I had talked with a few life/career coaches here and there, and Cynthia was the only one I wanted and chose to work with due to her professionalism, integrity, intelligence and creativity. Even if I was confused or pessimistic, she would work tirelessly to find the positive qualities and kernels of truth I could build on and work from.
Andri supported me during a very difficult time in my life while I was going through divorce and major career change. We had sessions over the course of a year. During that time she helped me: - emotionally go through the divorce and release guilt, shame, anger and lots of other emotoins that were blocking my mind and ability to feel joy - see that I had the right to dream a better life for me and my 2 boys and I was not "crazy" for asking more from life - understand the human basic needs which go so much beyond human survival. This brought peace in me and my relationship with my boys. The most important part was that I understood their need for love and certainty and how I can provide that to them even though I see them a few days per month - make better decisions for my company. I used to take most things emotionally and sometimes my decisions were not serving everyone. Now I use emotions and instincts to set a path, and use logic to decide on the steps. I now experience less stress and make less "mistakes" - understand why I need to value myself first and how this allows me to be strong for others I can go and on. In a nutshell, she helped me shift my perspective about dreams and passions and what is possible to achieve in life. Nothing can really hold you back. It is about the clarity you have and the decisions you make.
Jennifer was fantastic! I was facing some tough situations dealing with moving my career forward. I felt stuck, unable to make a decision about moving forward or staying where I am. After my sessions with Jennifer, it became crystal clear what I needed to do. I'm so grateful to Jennifer for giving me clarity and motivation. Plus, her personality makes her feel like a friend as well as a coach.
I have known Reverend Lucinda Martin for over 5 years and have had the blessing to receive spiritual guidance from her in many aspects of my life. I first met her when I was looking for someone to officiate my wedding. It was very important to my fiancé and I to have an outdoor wedding but still keep Catholic Tradition in our cermony. Upon meeting Lucinda, I immediately felt her passion and love for helping others in their spiritual path. She is warm, open and non judgemental. This was essential to me in my search. After seeing how beautiful our cermony was I decided to start both individual and couples spiritual guidance sessions. In the sessions I learned new tools on how to navigate my life in a more peaceful and serene way. One of my favorites is the spiritual mind treatment. Spiritual mind treatment is a format of writing out a prayer to release wounds, hurts and bring forth virtues you want. This process has drawn me closer to my Catholic Faith and enriched my life in so many ways. I continued on in my journey with Lucinda. I received career guidance, a celebration of life when my beloved bunny died and many tools to navigate life's challenges in a more peaceful way. I know I would not be where I'm at now, without Lucinda's love, support and guidance. I strongly recommend her in all her services. She is a non biased person that has helped me grow in all aspects of my faith journey. If you are looking for a deeper connection in faith, an interfaith wedding officient, career guidance, celebration of life, or simply a satchel of tools to navigate through life in a spiritually balanced way; I urge you to go with Lucinda. Blessings to you in your journey. Lauren W
I have previously worked with 2 coaches with varying experiences. Stacey, however, belongs to the subset of well-equipped and extremely competent coaches. I have been working with Stacey in a weekly hour long session since October 2016. She truly raises the bar by combining career, well-being, and life coaching. Her holistic approach to coaching allows for her (and myself) to see the bigger picture as she helps me to chip away at my goals and aspirations. Another quality that makes her stand out is how she presents information to me in a way that allows me to come to a solution through my own efforts. Often times I find myself hearing her voice in my head and using her (sometimes unrelated) knowledge to find a solution to challenges I have building my business. The direction and feeling of "being on the right track" that I've gained from working with Stacey has been a blessing. I appreciate each and every coaching session. I know that I will carry her knowledge and wisdom with me throughout my journey. I would highly recommend!
Shanti has been my life coach since September 2015 and has profoundly changed my outlook, which has had an incredible impact on my life and as a result, my career. She is so wise beyond her years and was very patient with me. I felt she was reasonably priced as well, which at that time in my life, was really important. I was very reluctant to try a life coach at first, but I'm so glad I did or at least I'm glad I found Shanti.
When I left my last job I was really struggling to find a new path. Anyone who has been involved in an early-stage startup knows just how much stress and burnout can derail your ideas about what you want for your life and career. Having support, encouragement, and advice from another female professional was what I craved at that time in my life. Victoria was exactly what I was looking for. She provided me with the patient listening, advice, and sometimes commiserating, that I needed to move on and begin my next job hunt. I happily found an amazing new job at the beginning of last year where I've been able to set personal time boundaries and earn the respect of my superiors. I adore this woman. And I know you will too.
Wendy played a major role in how I was able to realign my life to be more purposeful and gain control of my future. Before I started my sessions with Wendy, I worked at a decent job with above average pay but extremely low job satisfaction in an industry I could care less about and a role I strongly disliked. I am sure this describes most of us! I knew I wasn't truly happy, and Wendy helped me take inventory of my life. She challenged me to think deeper about what kind of life I wanted going forward. With Wendy's help, great patience, and her asking me all the right questions, and through different assessments, I realized it was time (and felt ready) to switch careers, back to what I've always wanted to do. Once we figured that part out, she helped me with resume review, cover letter review, and interviewing techniques through mock interviews. Now I can say I am finally doing what I studied in college, which is what I've wanted all along! If you are looking for a coach or feel that something is off in your life then I would suggest reaching out to Wendy and starting the conversation to create meaningful change in your life.
