I trained with Patrick for just over 2 years and made great progress in my weight loss. Patrick is a motivator and always kept me in check. If you have the will to make a change in your lifestyle and need a great coach, trainer and friend - look Patrick up and schedule a time to meet. You will not be disappointed.

I got in touch with Andrew and this company when I needed help to achieve my future career goal as a police officer. Andrew is flexible with scheduling and will do what he can to make it work your schedule as best as he can. The workouts are personalized to what you are in need of and what your personal goal is. As for the workouts themselves, they are intense as well as informative. Andrew does a good job explaining the reason for the workout and what it will benefit. Overall the work that i have put in with Andrew has definitely been a pleasure. -Joe

Laura is extremely smart, gifted and talented. From the moment we met, I could tell she was that rare individual, who has that special quality and talent to bring out the best in people. She has a keen perception of people and situations. An award winning journalist, writer, and collaborator, Laua is a professional coach who spent 15 years in Paris inspiring French professionals to overcome their personal and professional challenges, removing blocks toward reaching for the best in themselves. Finding a coach as qualified as Laura with her breadth of experience and personal charisma is impossible. I highly recommend her.

Wendie was an excellent tutor. Easy to schedule with and found a time and convenient location close to home. My son's score went up several points from the first time he took the ACT (before tutoring). His Reading score had a big increase send his math score went up dramatically too. My son mentioned that the tutoring also helped him in his math class at school. I would definitely hire Wendi again.

Sarah is an incredibly supportive and non judgmental life coach. She helped to develop my confidence and teach me the value of creative visualization. While working with Sarah through a career change, i more than tripled my salary and found a challenging position that supports both my career goals and greater life goals.

Joanna is unlike any interview coach I have had before, the approach she has to her clients was something to admire, and I looked and researched a few interview coaches before I decided to go with Negotiation Geek. Joanna has experience working HR in a Fortune 500 company, offers great advice, and she puts forth the most solid effort I have ever seen from a career coach in getting to know her clients’ needs before a session is established. This isn’t a cookie cutter coaching session, I was very impressed when she helped me prep for an interview for a Fortune 500 company, she reached out to her network who worked for the company to give me advice on the hiring process, taught me how to search for clues in the job posting, and asked me some very tough questions in our mock interview session. As a result of her game planning and the preparation skills it left me, I was well prepared for the interview, and it wasn’t nearly as hard as my mock interview with Negotiation Geek. I would recommend Joanna again and again to anyone who needs to prepare for an interview, and her salary negotiation skills are top notch and have helped me establish a better salary for the jobs I have been interviewing for. Joanna is awesome, and she even followed up with me after the interview to see how it went! Joanna is an amazing coach and I trust her because she’s put in the work in corporate America HR and she truly cares about her clients’ success. Go with Negotiation Geek and you will not be disappointed!

While working with a life coach, you can expect to confront issues that have been holding you back and preventing you from creating a reality you love to be in. As uncomfortable as confrontation can be, it’s often necessary for healing. Recognizing your issues, strengths, and weaknesses is a first step to wholeness and can provide invaluable guidance while on the path to living the life of your dreams. I have been a client of Mija's for over a year now and I can say that those uncomfortable situations have allowed me to stop seeing myself as the victim. Her guidance and motivation has given me the strength to change my life for the better. The change can be seen by me and those around me. The investment in me was the best thing I did for myself.

Jimmy is the man. He's one of the best Strength and Conditioning coaches I've ever worked with. He put 90+ pounds on all of my majors lifts and added 9 inches to my vertical in one off season. He's knowledgeable and personable and will help reach whatever goals you set in fitness and nutrition. I highly recommend him.

Anita Smith endeavors to coach adolescent girls and women in empowerment and healthier self-perception through supplying options for change, growth, and develop by way of workshops, mentoring, training, conferences and resources by the aid of quality products, services, integrity, reliability, faith, and hard work for the purpose of adapting or transforming their mindsets to break the unhealthy, pre-set rules governing their lives. * Crystal M. Gaines, client: Crystal M. hired me as a speaker in 2010 and hired me more than once.

She was knowledgeable, very encouraging, and our attendees came away with a new perspective.” * Quincy Bingham, client: Quincy hired me as a career coach in 2009 and hired me more than once. Top qualities: great results, expert, good value “Anita identified what messages I was trying to convey and helped me to effectively communicate those messages, verbally and non-verbally with my clients, friends, and family, especially when the stakes were high. We worked on my body language, pitch, tone, gestures, style of dress and the overall synergy of my presence. The sessions were fun, yet extremely informative! Now I use nearly everything I learned on an everyday basis. I feel like a new me!” * Veela Ammons, Owner/Founder, Image and Beauty Management, colleague She worked directly with me. “Anita Smith is a consummate professional, not only as a teacher, trainer, coach, but she is also a phenomenal speaker.
