Loren Michaels Harris auditioned and won a spot in our cast to read "LOST OR FOUND" in the 2016 Listen to Your Mother: Southwest Michigan show which I produce and co-direct locally. He. Was. Fabulous! Wonderful to work with. Very open to suggested edits and coaching. He is so clear on his message that he speaks off-the-cuff as smoothly and confidently as he reads a prepared piece. He was cool under pressure and absolutely delivered. A consummate professional. I would work with him anytime!

I am writing because I have used this service several times. I guess that is important because often someone will open a "business" and just vanish with your records. I tried working with a "mobile resume" business and it was like buying goods out of the trunk of a car. I like A Better Resume Service because when I call, someone answers. When I need something done, someone is available. My resume is too important to trust in the hands of a freelancer who has no commitment to my long-term career. I guess it would be even worse if I bought something from out of state. If you want your money's worth and responsibility on the part of your resume writer, make sure you can look them in the eye and shake their hand. I guess that's my two cents worth. I have been very happy with the service and work from A Better Resume Service.

The approach by Sharyl is completely different than what i was expecting. 1st: She poses questions, statements and suggestions that make you think. 2nd: The sessions are always looking for the positive of what your Health Journey is going through. 3rd: What we talk about and plan, end up being realistic and acheivable in your goals. I liked the sessions we have ... So i am positive:You'll like the sessions ... For me, the time flies by during our time together. ( That is everyone's indicator of something that is interesting and motivating ! ) My advice: Do it! - you get results.

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. Top qualities: expert, on time, high integrity “We requested Anita to speak to our youth and women on personal development. 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.

Thank you for making Miss Black Minnesota such a positive event.” January 5, 2011 * Arthur Horton III, educational counselor - TRiO, City Colleges of Chicago, colleague He worked with me. “Ms. Smith is one of the best motivational speakers that I have met. When we appeared for a speaking engagement without students, she performed so well that we had to bring her back a second time. She really connected well with students, and it helped motivate them to find out what they do well and move forward in their future endeavors whether it be college or technical school.” January 12, 2011 * Nancy Tennicott, client Nancy hired me as a model in 2003.

About

We evaluate the prospects/customers needs to determine what is needed and if we can help (situation analysis). We do not push customers into a corner with fear, uncertainty, and doubt, but let the customer choose whether to engage us based on what we believe we have to offer that will help them . We will only take on clients that we can truly help. We feel our price structure is both economical and competitive. Take a moment to view our WEB site first. Our professional coaches will teach you how to find job openings in a tight market, get the interview, and win the job. Making a job move or career change requires preparation and a marketing plan. The coaching session content will actually be based upon your specific interests/needs. An initial phone interview is completed (free and without obligation) to provide us some idea of your current status/situation and where you believe you need assistance. It will give you some idea of our services and sense of whether you believe we can be of help. It may be that your expectations are outside our capabilities and we may make a referral recommendation. We can effectively deliver job search and interview coaching over the phone. We are SKYPE capable in the event you wish to use that channel to connect. If you feel it would be beneficial to coach via a SKYPE video call, we can accommodate that. It sometimes is helpful seeing you in action, so to speak.

About

I have a degree in counseling psychology with a special interest in geropsychology. I will meet with your senior and assess an appropriate at-home plan that will encompass psychological interventions that have been proven to lessen anxiety and isolation symptoms of the elderly. Validity therapy and life review are 2 effective treatments, currently. Depending on the severity of the client's symptoms, weekly in-home visits are possible, and even daily check-ins are available and effective for a very reasonable fee based on individual client's needs. My company's mission statement is to treat all individuals with dignity while providing the client and their family with the tools needed to keep their loved ones in their home for as long as possible.
