        Mr.Jeffries was the Motivational Speaker at an event we had for Family and Friends Day with my company. We wanted to speak to our young men from ages16-18 in regards to what they wanted for themselves beyond high school. 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.

        Tara was a former manager who I've kept in touch with for almost 10 years. She's a great motivator and is able to easily unpack information in a way that makes it easy to understand. She also does a great job creating actionable steps to help you achieve your goal. I'd highly recommend her as a speaker or coach.

          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 have had the honor of exchanging creative ideas focusing on positive intervention with Ms. Griffe in the past na dhave found her enthusiasm and bright nature to be encouraging and insightful. I am an on line counselor and we corresponded for several months. I appreciated her experience and thought out remarks which showed to me a focused and positive personality! I have always had good interactions and received helpful remarks in my ongoing pursuit of excellence in helping others. Ms. Griffe was always prompt and thorough. 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.

            About

            I am a former college football coach where I coached our athletes to give their best performances on every play. This resulted in our winning two conference championships. My programs make neural science fun and understandable and also includes best practices of elite performers. I teach people how to focus, how to influence what they pay attention to and how to create habits that will instinctively generate the actions necessary to reach their goals. There is a core of personal accountability and I'm known as "The Accountability Guy". I certainly build a case for the importance of taking responsibility and being the source versus going victim and blaming. I customize for every group and when hired I will ask about your goals, your systems and metrics, your KPI's, your daily activities and then your obstacles. I incorporate this into the presentation. This is an entertaining, high energy and fun presentation with immediately useful and relevant content. I can customize to any amount of time. I am the only speaker who presents like I do. No one else has the background that I have. I've worked with Nobel Prize winner Roger Sperry while I was a head football and wrestling coach at Cal Tech in Pasadena, CA. I had the opportunity to refine and simplify these techniques with Steve Mariucci, fellow assistant coach while at Cal State Fullerton. Steve is a former head coach for the San Francisco 49'ers and Detroit Lions and is now a broadcaster. I don't emphasize this unless you want me to. I also coached an Olympic Gold Medal winner in Greco Roman Wrestling, Jeff Blatnick, who won the gold in the 1984 Olympics.
