Fantastic experience working with Juan and Pura Vida Wedding. Juan made the process very easy and accommodated our requests. Especially as we had a combined group of Spanish and English speakers, able to help bridge the gap so both sets of parties were equally included. Extremely professional and genuinely sincere, it is evident that Juan takes great pride and passion in what he does to make your special day, truly significant! Would highly recommend Juan and Pura Vida Wedding to anyone getting married, and feel confident that you have made the right choice when you say, “I do!”

Jim Ryan came highly recommended by a staff member, and upon meeting with him I knew immediately that he would be an excellent speaker to have at our annual staff development day. This proved true. Jim presented his “Simple Happiness” message to 130 employees of various ages and backgrounds. His uplifting and motivational presentation resonated broadly and deeply with out diverse group. As often is the case with employees in healthcare and other helping profession, it can sometimes be difficult to separate work and home life. Jim’s approach enabled each staff member in his or her own way to explore opportunities to apply to themselves— both professionally and personally— the same drive for joy, happiness, well-being, and unconditional positive regard that they ten to strongly deliver to other people, including their clients and peers. Jim offered highly relevant tools, concepts, and ideas. I received many positive comments from staff at the conclusion of the event and in the weeks afterward. My staff particularly enjoyed Jim’s tips on adding joy to daily life. I highly recommend Jim Ryan as a speaker for any event with a goal of enforcing personal wellness. I have no doubt that after listening to—and feeling inspired to engage with—Jim’s message, you and those you lead will feel a renewed sense of joy and positivity Jeffrey Freidman

    As though you did not have a lot of interested individuals in the building you were capable of delivering a dynamic, captivating, and inspiration presentation. Parents and communities should stay informed and be interested in the educational investment that they put in the children of tomorrow. Awesome job once again!!

    My life became overwhelming in the last year, and I realized that I needed some assistance to get back on track. I was referred to Patricia Diesel by a friend who had used her services, and who was very pleased with the changes she was able to make. Through an evaluation and weekly coaching sessions, we targeted my trouble areas, established meaningful goals, and set priorities. This process has been invaluable to me, and I feel confident that I will be able to continue on the path towards elimination of clutter and to embrace order in my life. Patricia is empathetic, yet strong in her ability to organize and teach the skill set needed by her clients to detangle and detach from the clutter that is blocking their lives. I highly recommend her services.

    Kevin came to my high school for a motivational speech. As the acting president of Upper Academy during 2015, I can speak for everyone who attended and say that Kevin has engaged, inspired students to go through failure. He then went on to explain his story of dropping out of school and how he perservired to become a college graduate sharing his story. This message was well needed in Elizabeth, NJ where students frequently drop out due to a lack of hope in higher education. However, for that one performance he has truly inspired students to keep persisting and dream big.

    I have been a client of Carla Zilka's for the last 4 years. I was drawn to her studio by her intelligence, talent and her strong dedication to her students. She truly cares about making the world a better place through her teaching. She is a true life long learner and makes it a point to share all her knowledge with her students. Her classes are like none other. I always leave her studio intellectually challenged and motivated. She has been instrumental in helping me reduce anxiety and stress by teaching me recognize the many ways habitual negative thought patterns block happiness. As a yoga teacher she taught me how I held on to stress in my body, but more importantly she showed me how I held on to stress in my mind. I've learned that the simple step of changing my thoughts could dramatically change how I lived my life. She introduced me to great books and teachings that helped explain the laws of attraction and our own ability to create positive outcomes. I can't say enough positive things about Carla. I am truly blessed to have found such an amazing teacher.

    Oscar is an outstanding, reliable and knowledgeable personal trainer. For more than a year, he's been training me at my home gym about twice a week, with the goal of improving my overall speed, balance and power for running. Oscar's training methods are well-structured but flexible and never boring, because he's always teaching me new exercises and stretches. In that time, thanks to the work we've done, I've seen improvements in my overall health and fitness. A nice side effect of working out with Oscar is the occasional question: "Nice abs! Do you work out?" I highly recommend iBE-K Fitness services!

    It was a pleasure to meet and work with Amesha. She is absolutely stellar and a great communicator. My entire team was captivated by her message and more importantly how she delivered it, it was amazing to watch.

    I consider myself extremely lucky to have stumbled upon Kacey in my first experience with a life coach. Kacey is a truly outstanding motivator who is fiercely dedicated to her clients. She goes above and beyond to make sure I always feel supported, listens carefully, and accelerates my progress through relevant, insightful, and thought provoking questions and exercises. Seeing how incredibly invested Kacey is in my growth is a huge motivator to continue to be my best self, and she has consistently lead me to very tangible, life changing transformations.

        I hired Sara Elise to speak at a young adult forum regarding budgeting practices and college prep... she was phenomenal! She was very professional when dealing with us and arranging logistics, then very laid back and personable when speaking with the youth, which allowed many of them to feel an instant connection with her. I have never received so many requests to send thank you notes from the students. Plus, she really knows her stuff! I would highly recommend Sara Elise and definitely plan to work with her in the future.
