I've had the pleasure of being coached by Suzette Vearnon for 12 weeks. I enjoyed the weekly coaching sessions. It was a very enlightening experience. I learned a lot about my self and how I process things. I also learned that to avoid feeling "stuck" in life, all I have to do is set S.M.A.R.T goals and take action toward those goals, one step at a time and eventually I will achieve my goals. I also obtained a different perspective on the different areas of my life (career, relationships, and finances) based on your objective feedback during our sessions. I appreciated the accountability that helped me remain committed to my goals. Suzette is very passionate about her work as a coach and in wanting others to be successful in every aspect of their lives. She was very knowledgeable and resourceful. Thank you Suzette

I consider it an honor and privilege to have attended numerous speaking engagements lead by DeShannon Dixon. Mrs. Dixon is a consummate professional and a powerful speaker with a robust knowledge of life circumstances. When DeShannon SPEAKS, she captivates her audience and those in attendance have no choice but to LISTEN! As a result, since July 2015 I have been utilizing DeShannon as my career coach in my pursuit of a new employment opportunity. She has done a remarkable job in revising my resume and preparing me for interviews to receive credible recognition from profound organizations. I am excited to say that since working with DeShannon I have been on several interviews and I am now in a position to chose my next career and command the salary that I deserve instead of accepting what is offered. DeShannon is by far a PHENOMENAL WOMAN!

Lucie Knapp helped me tackle multiple issues during our work together which went on for about five years. She counseled and supported me on the many issues involved with my food addiction and binge eating disorder. She served as a coach both in person and in phone calls, teleconferences and emails. She always made herself available as a source of support. When I decided to change careers, she helped me in a very challenging transition from leaving a job of over ten years in order to return to school and pursue a new path. She is insightful, attentive, and supportive. She has a vast understanding of many challenges we all face in life. She listens and guides without pushing her own agenda which is a gift when it comes to social workers, therapists and life coaches. She is incredibly resourceful in suggesting books, workbooks and assignments to help in the goals you are trying to accomplish in life. Most importantly she provides a safe space and an understanding, encouraging presence which is what is needed to accomplish your goals, regardless of what they are. I highly suggest her for whatever you're trying to accomplish from weight loss to anxiety management to mindfulness to career changing/transitions.

I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Jessi LaCosta for the last 9 years. She has provided career coaching for me as I have developed in my career as an executive in the solid waste industry. I have also participated in formal training courses taught by Ms. LaCosta. Ms. LaCosta is a very warm, outgoing and talented lady always giving of herself to help others be the best they can be. Her skills as a coach have been invaluable to me. I am always energized and motivated after interacting with Ms. LaCosta! As a coach, Ms. LaCosta easily grasps the situations I am grappling with. She asks probing questions causing me to explore the obstacles I see to success, and helps me to identify options to resolve issues and build skills. Her deep comprehension of the various schools of theory allow Ms. LaCosta to pull from a wide variety of tools to assist her clients reach understanding and resolution. I have been able to be more of a coach and servant leader with my own employees by applying skills I have learned from my interactions with Ms. LaCosta I am pleased to recommend Ms. LaCosta to other professionals who are striving to be better leaders and build quality relationships. She is an upbeat speaker and has a depth of knowledge that is just fascinating to listen to!

James is both an outstanding life, relationship and career coach, but also an outstanding person. His ability to listen, and then propose a path to overcome a problem, breakthrough a block, or better understand a situation never ceased to amaze me. Sometimes you just need someone to see things from the outside, I just recommend that the person you pick should be trained in specifically that skill. And James is not only trained - he is gifted.

I had the privilege of working with Jim over a period of months as I was going through a transitional phase when my youngest child left for college. Jim's coaching was very beneficial to me during this time as I was experiencing what some may call the empty nest syndrome. I felt very comfortable sharing my feelings and story with Jim. He is a great listener and I really felt I was being heard. He was good at providing insight and effective tools in assisting me during this transition in my life. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone as he was a great help to me!

Working with Susan Walsh is amazing. I never in my life had such a clear vision for where I wanted my life to be. I was able to leave a career I was unhappy with and found my passion and am twice as much money! My relationship with my husband is better than ever before (lots of upgraded communication and passion!) and we are really developing a plan for leaving a legacy as we travel to places we only dreamed of before: Athens, Barcelona, Maldives. Susan showed me how to leave behind the limiting beliefs that used to stop me. She is so skilled and highly trained and intuitive, I could never recommend her highly enough. Work with her! You'll be glad you did!

I came to Doug during one of the lowest points of my life. Due to insecurity and anxiety, I had driven away some of the people that meant most to me. He helped me by building confidence and giving me the tools to help relax myself during times of high stress with my personal relationships and career problems as well. He was very helpful in answering questions and seeing me in times of great need (the guided imagery is very good for relaxation when your mind won't relax). Now, my personal relationships are in order and my career's future is looking much brighter, thanks with Doug's awesome help. I owe a lot to him and definitely recommend him to anybody who may be struggling to see the good in things because Doug can help!

I have used Nikki at www.bbeams.com for career coaching and resume development. She is very intelligent and has amazing turnover time. My only reason for marking one star down, is her rates feel a little high sometimes, but I've always been impressed with the results. I actually recommend her to a friend yesterday!

Best Careers helped me understand and address key areas for development in networkingt & interview skills. They helped focus my resume and LinkedIn profiles to tell the best and most appealing "story" of me to potential employers. They helped me realize that I had all the skills & experience needed to succeeded; and that all I lacked was focus and confidence!

“Being very much an emotional eater, I have been battling weight gain for years. It had always seemed like I kept going up and up. I would try diet plans – Weight Watchers, NutriSystem, Jenny Craig, to name a few, and would lose a few pounds, but always gained it back over time, and then some. My weight had reached its all-time high at 210 lbs. On top of that, my hands and feet began to get these patches of raised red skin with thick silvery scales. I went to my dermatologist and was diagnosed with Psoriasis. I tried ointment, after ointment to no avail and also Enbrel injections, to no avail. It began to affect my work. I was told by my supervisors I would have to wear gloves to hide the psoriasis on my hands. I felt like my life was crashing in on me. That is when I met Rick. He explained to me that he was a Wellness Coach, specializing in diet and nutrition, among other things. He told me that if I was interested that he would help me work on my diet and nutrition habits and would come up with a strategy to help conquer this debilitating psoriasis. His theory was that the psoriasis I was experiencing was just a symptom of the many stressors I was putting on my body, including: poor nutrition, lack of exercise, and not dealing effectively with emotional stress. Working with Rick on a weekly basis has been the best thing that I have ever done! It truly is a gift that I have given to myself. I quickly learned that what Rick was saying, was “right on target.” He began to clean up my diet, teaching me about healthy, nutritional foods. He has also introduced me to healing natural supplements and vitamins – all without the negative side effects that medications typically have. As a result, I have more energy and have lost 40 lbs in the past year. Just as a lack of exercise, bad eating habits, and not dealing effectively with emotional stress caused weight gain, I also discovered that these were contributing to put my life out of balance, and played a major role in bringing on the psoriasis. Rick has also begun to help me in other areas – financial budgeting, setting goals, establishing boundaries, improving relationships, career change, and at the very core – helping me find purpose, meaning and joy by deepening my spiritual life. Rick truly is helping me beyond what I could imagine. He is objective, knowledgeable, supportive, empathetic, and encouraging, always listens and is always there, whenever I need his counsel in any area. I finally feel like my life journey has begun again as Rick and I continue to work together on different areas of life that are important to me , and continuing my weight loss, nutrition goals and other life goals - spiritual, relational, career, and finance goals. Rick is indeed the very best of the best of personal life and wellness coaches and a confidante and friend for life!”

Debra is an amazing coach. For me, i had family issues and a lot of negative self talk that was preventing me from moving forward with my career goals and her Mastermind class really helped me understand the basic principles of "Success". Her unique approach to teaching and small class sizes are perfect for self development and career development. Her classes also offer an opportunity to meet local people and to network. I met several friends in her class! I highly recommend Debra's services who anyone looking for Mastermind, life coaching and career development.
