I have always struggled with speaking to large groups. I am very shy and very introverted, and as a result I clam up and stutter profusely. Mrs. LaBoon offered a multitude of strategies to help me overcome my overwhelming stage fright. She also taught me how to organize my speech to make the message, or main point clearer and easier to understand for my audience, in addition to helping me recognize repetitive behavior and speech dysfluences that interrupted the flow of my speech. In conclusion, I am a much better speaker as a result of Mrs. LaBoon's lessons.

Awww, where shall I start...One year ago Mr.Thornton became my spin coach..Since that time my BMI has gone from 37% to 22%.. I have been taken off of my diuretic and today still workout under his guidance..Everyday you can rest assure that there will be a motivational post with encouraging advice to include healthy eating and always. always a pep talk before class begin.. He is a huge inspiration in my life, and at 59 would not have a life style as I do without his influence.. He is a person that affects you in an important way..

I’m a single parent raising a son who Baruti Muenda Meriamen has been and still is a positive influence and mentor to. His calm but firm and direct attitude does wonders for anyone listening! He is a very motivational and inspirational person who I am happy to have in my son’s life. We have been knowing him for several years and my son is continuously learning not just martial arts from him but also how to deal with real life situations. Overall he is teaching him how to be a responsible man. My son is in awe of him and is reaping many benefits which will help him as he maneuvers his way through life’s challenges. Awesome person and instructor!!!

I walked in thinking that I wouldn't get better, BUT I have and I AM better. Each session felt very refreshing, like the first day of Spring after a very cold and dark Winter. Great connection, uplifting, motivating, and encouraging. I feel like my mind, body and spirit are one now. My Faith has been restored and NOW, I can Believe Again!!!!

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to listen to Duane speak to 70 of my wife's Upward Bound students. Not only was I impressed, I was truly astonished. Never in a million years would I except someone could hold a group of 70 teenagers attention for 3.5 hours, but Duane did just that. Initially he was only suppose to speak from 6pm-7pm, but the students were so tuned in and excited about what he had to say, once they began asking questions 7pm turned into 8pm and eventually someone had to step in and say "Ok, last question". Had they not done so, I am confident Duane and the students would have been both perfectly happy continuing the Q&A for another two hours! As if that wasn't enough, Duane then took the time to speak to each student individually and write a sincere personal note inside the cover of their books. Some of them waited in line for over an hour for this, and when it was all said and done it was 9:30pm. Several times the counselors offered to take anyone who didn't want to wait back to their rooms, but no one budged... Everyone wanted there chance to talk to Duane. If you are looking for a speaker who will inspire you to be sensational, then this is your guy. Also, his book "The Sensational Salesman" is hands down one of the greatest books I've ever got hands on. If anyone is interested in improving the quality of your life, in all aspects, not just business, I highly recommend checking it out.

Best Vocal Coach Ever!!! That's a promise!... Working with Princess was the best decision I could've ever made! She is not only a vocal coach and performer, she is also inspiring, a motivator and truly wants to see you be your absolute best. In one night, my very first lesson, Princess and her friend Maestro gave me a brand new lease on life with my voice. I had to prepare for a last minute solo and they coached me on everything from breathing to tone to stage performance/presence and most importantly making it my own. I felt so much more confident in my solo. I look forward to continued ongoing training with Princess and would hands down recommend her for anyone seeking vocal training :)

I met Jonathon when a friend passed me his details, he came very highly recommended from a fellow triathlete who had knocked a considerable time off her long standing PB. I am fairly shy when it comes to asking for help with my own fitness, I had to stick with the coach at my athletics club because I was worried about working with anyone else. I hadn't improved for quite some time with my current coach so on the recommendation of my friend Jane I took the plunge and it was the best move I could have made. Jonathon's knowledge is second to none, the improvements I have made over the last 6 months are nothing short of incredible. My old coach, although slightly annoyed initially has praised his work with me. His coaching style suited me perfectly, pushed me within my limits rather than reaching past them, encouraging me with the things that motivated me rather than using negatives like many other coaches. Even taking the time to work training around my menstrual cycle, and even teaching me a thing or two about it! I never really leave reviews but I felt that I needed to write this review because Jonathon has been instrumental in helping me place third in my latest event and coming from finishing in the last third previously this is amazing! Thank you for all of your support Jonathon, I cannot wait to see what the next 6 months will bring.

I recently utilized the services of Ms. Alisa Tenhoopen of Platinum Butterfly. The service Ms. Tenhoopen provided me in regards to life coaching was outstanding. I was thoroughly impressed with her attentiveness to the personal issues I've been seeking help in resolving. After our initial session I felt Ms. Tenhoopen truly understood my needs. She offered some excellent insight into what I'm dealing with. I have already arranged to meet with Ms. Tenhoopen again to further deal with my problems. I'm looking forward to our upcoming sessions. I've finally met someone who I feel has the necessary level of compassion and professional knowledge to help me get through the things I've been dealing with. Thank you Alisa, I really appreciate what you've helped me understand about my issues so far. "G.B."
