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!!!

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.

    I highly endorse Michael "MVP" Jennings to be booked as a motivational Speaker at any School, Community or Private Event. I have enjoyed hearing him at a suburban Library Event, at his Booksigning Private Party and as a supportive softball Teammate. He is prompt, professional, engaging and very personable. He will get your crowd "fired up and ready to go!"

    I stumbled across Connie's site via google while looking for inspirational quotes. She had a video series called "Coffee with Connie." These motivational videos were exactly what I needed to start my day. I found myself logging in every morning to start my day. Thanks for sharing your experiences!

      I hired Patrick Donohue to speak as part of the Glenbard Parent Series: GPS Navigating Healthy Families. Pat did a great job connecting with the audience and providing practical study and life skill tips for high school parents. Pat combines the motivational skills of an athletic coach, with command of a great teacher and the insight of a parent to provide a presentation that is both informative and engaging. I also hired Pat to work with student leaders. With students, Pat is energetic, interactive, funny and challenging. He pushes students to think about real issues and to become their best selves. If you hire Pat for any audience, you will be hiring a speaker who is engaging, well prepared and will make your event a success

      If you need a dynamic speaker who is Informative, humorous and dynamic - you will find all these traits with Debbie Vyskocil of Optimal Edge Performance. I've heard her speak several times and she always draws me in with her stories and expertise. I would definitely recommend her for any conference, staff meeting or corporate event.

      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.

      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.

      Vanessa was great at managing our event. We had 100 attendees. She handled everything from the hotel room block, to prepping speakers, to handling all the food, beverage, flowers, and decorations. It was great to rely on her keen eye to attention. The event was in excellent hands and I didn't have to stress with any of the details! Thank you!
