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.

She is an inspiring motivator to your child. She is warm, caring and very knowledgeable of all subjects. I would recommend her to anyone (child or adult). She not only helped my daughter with learning subjects for the ACT, but also with helpful hints and techniques. Lastly, my daughter also suffered from anxiety during testing. I'm happy to say she did not experience any anxiety when testing!!!

Migdalia is an amazing, inspiring woman. As my trainer, she had great compassion, challenging me but also understanding my limitations. She was also my massage therapist and I could feel her warmth and care with every touch. She's remarkable and I recommend her with the highest possible regard.

In mid-September, Positively Naperville received a letter to the editor from Loren Michaels Harris regarding an NPR.org story about the Ohio police release of graphic overdose photos featured on Sept. 12, 2016. As publisher of the hyper local monthly publication in a city focused on fighting addictions and drug abuse of all kinds, I was struck by Loren’s thoughtful, timely and meaningful words, especially as they related to local initiatives such as “Connect for Life,” “KidsMatter,” and Project H.E.L.P. His reference to being a motivational speaker and his never-ending story of survival prompted my wondering about a presentation to our Rotary Club of Naperville-Downtown. Our small Rotary club is always looking for 30-minute programs. Speakers are invited to present educational topics such as the one addressed in his letter. We talked, we met, Loren agreed and the date was set for Oct. 26. Though electronics failed to connect that afternoon, preventing members from viewing Loren’s video introduction, he punted ably, landed on his feet and started from the very beginning of his 54 years. The trials and tribulations that have contributed to Loren’s strength of character and determination live within an engaging story of surviving one birth mother, one adoptive mother, and 20 foster mothers. Against so many obstacles, Loren is a survivor of the foster care system who says his only source of continual healing from the scars of foster care comes from addressing the need for better protection of all children, especially from social media, neighbor to neighbor. Rotarians experienced a very compelling presentation by a man who appears to be at home with his powerful story, one that needs to be told over and over—with or without the video introduction.

    Steve Mack officiated our wedding and I can’t express enough how amazing he was. The words he spoke during our ceremony we’re so heartfelt, meaningful and inspirational. He took our journey and the love my husband and I have for one another and expressed it in the most beautiful way, that he had everyone hanging off of every word he said and feeling the love all night long. If you are looking for an amazing person, wordsmith and consimate professional Steve Mack is who you are looking for.

    John was excellent to work with in every facet. He was quick to respond and engaging in the process leading up to his presentation, and his engagement (I wouldn't call it a "speech", as there was so much audience participation) was excellent. I would highly recommend.

    Cindy is the best of the best! She is someone you just want to get to know. She handled everything so beautifully and led us through it each step of the way. Our wedding was better than we could have ever hoped for! She made the entire wedding so personal and even wrote the most incredible poem about our lives together. We are going to have it framed as a lifelong reminder! With Cindy performing our marriage, we always felt comfortable that everything was in control and would go well - and believe me, that's a great feeling! After all, your wedding is your most important day! Cindy doesn't only have a lot of experience marrying people, but she has been a speaker for years! So she is very used to talking to big crowds. This was so wonderful, because she came across so natural, she could be heard well, and really knew how to "present" the ceremony so that it all comes off without a problem. She is also great for those awkward "on the spot" moments where no one knows what to do or say. (We had one of those with my mother-in-law, but Cindy handled it beautifully!) Everyone was so pleased and very impressed. She led us through our rehearsal so we all knew what to do and what to expect. She helped us to write our vows without being intrusive or pushy. She was sooooo helpful! She organized our music for us, helped us to chose readings and just put together and overall ceremony that blew us away! Oh, and she also created our wedding bulletins! They were really awesome! I just loved them!!! I will recommend Cindy to everyone (and do). She is that on-in-a-million type of person you just hope will come into your life. We will always be grateful that she came into ours!!!!

    It has been said that I "must be experienced".I have been told my work stands out because it is 100% from my heart and soul. The audience is able to rediscover, explore, determine, define and execute a new way of perceiving and believing in themselves and their life. The gift of connecting with people is due to the honest, open and transparent way I deliver a message. I have been described as engaging, enlightening and dynamic and my presentations are priceless. I witness first hand the audience react as I speak so powerfully right to their personal experiences. My events have been "life changing"
