Working with Cha has been life changing. Not only is she an incredible speaker, with the ability to put thoughts and feelings to "just right"words, she's an amazing teacher as well. She patiently breaks things down in a way that is easy to understand and that takes intimidation out of moving forward. She listens and observes carefully so that she can help you reach your fullest potential. After my time with Cha, I felt empowered.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with Theo Schaffer professionally and personally over the past year. As a community affairs manager at an ABC television affiliate, I don’t often come in contact with public speakers with Mr. Schaffer’s talent, and no one comes close to the incredible presentation that I consistently see in Theo Schaffer. I would recommend his service without hesitation because his passion is second to none.

Mr.Jeffries did an awesome job with letting the students know there's so much more to look forward to after graduation. In regards to college, resume building money managent just to name a few things that the group went over. Got a lot of positive feedback from our guest and management. The group was allowed to asked questions and go in depth with each component of the workshop. Mr. Jeffries was prompt and excited to speak with the group.We will definitely use him again with our next enrichment focus group.

Dear Miss Thomas . Before we began working together I knew I had the ability to become the person I wanted to be but I was having a hard time achieving it. With your coaching I was able to understand on a deeper level what is important to me, what inspires me, and what I can do right now to make that real. I have renewed motivation to take action toward these goals and dreams.

I recommend her to anyone looking for a dedicated, compassiomnate and focused person who does major on the minors but naturally sees what a priority is and addresses it promptly. Thank you! Rev.

I loved the fact that I was able to talk to Travaughn like she was an old friend. I felt comfortable enough to be completely honest and open with her about my feelings and thoughts which allowed her to better assist me in my journey. I could tell by our sessions that she was well educated in her journey to assist her clients successfully. She is very professional with her sessions. She was always punctual and prepared in our scheduled sessions. There was always a feeling of continuity in our sessions even though a week had passed since the last session. She gave me her personal contact info to call her any time I felt the need and she was always available. She brought so much clarity to the issues that I was dealing with. The tools and resources she provided me have genuinely changed the way I think and react to everyday life issues; from the minor to the major. I feel so blessed that I was able to be inspired by Coach Swain.
