I travel every week for work and have been working with Patrick while I'm in Des Moines. I have a chronic rotator cuff issue and Patrick has been a great resource and coach to help me train around this issue. With his background as a physical therapist, he's been educating me about the physiological root cause of my shoulder issues and helping me find ways to work out around the issue. I highly recommend him to anyone in Des Moines or to anyone passing through town.

Marwan know's his stuff. I was in already great shape before asking him to be my personal trainer and help me learn self Defense. Um Yeah, Coach Marwan took me to a whole new level and I can honestly say that I wish I found him 3 years ago.

My career needed a makeover and I did not know what to do with the second half of my life. I was able to make a new career path and have learned to be a great public speaker with Paula my life coach. I really enjoy my new career.

As a previous client of The Next Step Solution, I want to say I highly recommend the complete package to anyone who is seeking to learn what their God-given strengths and passions are. We are all unique and have characteristics that are innately built in us that naturally make us perfect in certain roles. However, like myself, though I had these strengths and passions deep inside me, I needed help discovering what they were and how these strengths and passions had already been playing out in my life without me fully realizing it. As my career coach took me through the journey of self-discovery, I learned that I had much experience with transferable skills that my prospective employer would be looking for in their search for the perfect candidate. I share with you my testimonial so you can see the contrast of where I was to how the journey with my career counselor truly made all the difference in my results. I was seeking to enter a new career as a registered nurse. I had been an in-home daycare provider for over 15 years. I had not done an interview in over 17 years, nor had I ever put together a resume or letter of intent. The job seeking process had changed drastically in all those years. I didn’t know how to sell myself on paper to get to the point of getting the interview, let alone knowing what to say in the interview to assure them I was the right person for the job. My career coach started me off discovering what my strengths were by taking an online test. I had a deadline to submit all my paperwork, so at the time I remember thinking I don’t have time to do a self-discovery journey… I need a resume quick! I couldn’t have been more wrong. It turns out discovering my strengths was the foundation to everything else we did and ultimately what landed me two job offers at two different hospitals in the area, both of which were a direct track to what was my passion. In other words, I got TWO offers for what were my DREAM jobs. My resume showed a consistent application of transferrable skills in all my previous roles that they were skills they were specifically looking for. I remember several aha moments as I struggled to see how certain skills had been performed in my previous roles as my coach guided and encouraged to pull out specific examples I had performed. She showed me how that applied to a transferable skill. By end of my journey with my career coach, I had a new confidence of who I was, what specific path I wanted to take that would lead me to fulfilling my passions of doing what I love and I had an arsenal of prepared documents that gave me the tools needed to land the job! Though I was done with my sessions with my coach, she went above and beyond the call of duty and continued to coach me through my interview process. Seeing how nervous I was, my coach took the time to help me realize I had all the tools I needed to be successful. She even practiced doing interview questions with me. I had been so nervous about this process, I pictured myself walking into the interview and clamming up with no personality and having brain block. The interviews I faced were particularly intimidating because both positions I was interviewing for required me to be interviewed by a 5-person panel by important supervisory people that were in charge of finding just the right candidate for the position. What I didn’t realize fully at this point was that my coach had fully prepared me to shine during this moment. After saying a small prayer, I walked into the interview surrounded by all these important people, knowing this was the most important interview I had ever had in my life. I was amazed as the process unfolded how confident and sure of myself I felt. I truly did shine and I knew without a doubt I had hit the target during the interaction I had with each person. Ultimately, at the end of each of the two interviews I was asked the dreaded question, “Why should we hire you compared to all the other candidates applying for the job?” This is where I was able to pull out the strengths finder test results and fully explained what my strengths were, why those were important as a nurse and how those strengths had already been consistently applied in all my other roles and life experience and how those strengths were a perfect fit for their organization’s vision and purpose. I walked out seeing smiling faces and knowing that I was going to be offered the job. Money was tight for me at the time I considered the services provided and I questioned if I could afford it. Looking back at the journey, I know it was an investment that will pay off for years to come. I know without a doubt that I would not have had the same results if I had tried to do this alone and not taken the time to discover my strengths and passions first. Thank you, Next Step Solution! You helped to change my future!

One of my favorite things about Beth is her ability to be personable and understanding. She presents herself in a way that makes opening up about life seem easy and conversational. I enjoy the fact that she never seems to pass judgment about anything brought to her. It's hard to find someone, in my experience, that makes talking about uncomfortable topics feel almost effortless and received without some form of judgement. She is attentive and warm.

Thank you very much for your "Changing the Human Battery with Lasting Inspiration" at our radiologist seminar.

We hope to work with you again very soon.

About

Hi. I am Amrit Hari, and I would love to give you a reading to help you live your best life. Raised as a Christian girl who was raised in a family of dreamers, it was no wonder that I would be interested in tarot, numerology and astrology and have a whole different belief system than everyone around me. I have always been drawn to the tarot and picked up my first deck when I was 16. I started off by doing readings for my friends and family and realized that these readings were predicting things for them very accurately. In doing readings for myself, I always tried to control what happened and make things come sooner, which in the end delayed what was supposed to happen for me, but as I grew wiser in my gift, I learned to read and let go. I also became a certified life coach. It is my goal in life to listen and look into things for people and help them with the tarot and my spirit guide to make the best decision for their life and live the happiest life possible. My reading style is straightforward. I will tell you what I see, whether it be good or bad. In a session with me, we will focus on what the cards say and lead you in the right direction.

About

Majority of personal trainers these days think they can just hop into the health and fitness industry and start “changing lives.” That’s what’s wrong with the industry. So many “personal trainers” that don’t know what they’re doing and most don’t even practice what they preach. I believe experience is the #1 factor when it comes to helping people. Without the experience how do you expect to know what to do? Because you read it in a book? That’s a joke. I’ve been experiencing on myself and others for years to see what works and what doesn’t. Having proper knowledge in nutrition, active lifestyles, and proper balance is what makes a health coach. I help turn a well balanced lifestyle into everyday living.

The core values of these programs are Curiosity, Vulnerability and Creativity, and through embracing these values the client can regain control of her life. Motivational Speaking: I am like no other motivational speaker, not only because I can do it two languages (Spanish and English) but because I am also production conscious, and by that I mean I understand the backend of events and will make the work of the production team very easy. Spanish-English Interpretation: My programs are experience based and my interpretation skills can range anywhere from motivational talks, to the automobile lubricant industry.
