We needed a Life Coach to help motivate a group of 60 individuals in the insurance business. We didn't know where to look and interviewed many candidates in person & WoW; Mr. Stone came in. He had a confidence, fearlessness and inner strength that was second to none. Here was a Life Coach who just knew what to say and when to say it -- and how loud to say it! He analyzed the room very quickly and knew what was necessary to get these teams up on their toes. I must say some of his ways are a bit unconventional but it just worked. As said in his profile, "it is not the odds that kill us but the spirit that dies if one is not able to fight those odds". He installed that spirit in everyone in the room including upper management and the executives. Once in a while you meet someone who is a little different yet relates to those who are listening and understands what they need to hear to embrace the next challenge and better themselves. As he said, there is a formula that he learned as an executive through the years through trial and error that just works. His stories alone had the group mesmerized and his intensity was formidable. If you can get him to handle your meetings/conventions; grab him as he is well worth it. We couldn't haven't been happier as he even stayed a bit longer to answer individual questions from the audience on stage and alone.

Tom has shown that he genuinely cares about how, when, and if I progress. He is invested in whether I actually achieve breakthroughs toward my personal success. Considering that my goals are so immense: to metamorphosize an ashamed, unhappy, ineffective, & lonely guy, with limited professional influence, into a proud, happy, effective, socially fulfilled, & profoundly influential version of myself, it would have been easy for him to give up on me. Even though I'm confident many life coaches in his position would have terminated our relationship months ago, dealing with such a high-maintenance client as myself - expressing to him hundreds of suggestions / criticisms / requests, expecting a personalized experience that caters to my individual needs, and offering frequent pessimism or guarded skepticism at best - he has been patient, flexible, & determined to support my progress. It has been several months since Tom started coaching me, and I have consciously delayed writing a review until I might have a sense not just that he cares and won't give up (after all, that's part of the job description), but that he will actually help me transform myself, in ways that countless others haven't. I have worked with therapist after therapist for years & years, undergone treatment with psychiatrists, hired dozens of countless project collaborators and personal assistants, and tried more times than I can remember to count on the support of family and friends in order to help me make the steady progress needed to break out of a deep debilitating personal rut that has lasted for decades. All of the above have been unsuccessful. I naturally wasn't expecting Tom to be any different. But I gave him a shot, deciding that I deserved a chance for renewed hope. I almost gave up on him and on myself, but he didn't give up on either. And finally, after months of 'blood, sweat, and tears,' I have come to believe there is hope at the end of the tunnel. I'm beginning to make steady transformative progress, and I'm looking forward to the journey that lies ahead. Prerequisites for success: I have to be patient, make a few reasonable leaps of faith, and make an investment in my future, emotionally and financially. I also have to be an active participant and be willing to gradually take the reins myself. I finally have to accept his limitations, while recognizing and counting on his strengths. His limitations: Tom is not a miracle worker, and in comparison to others I've worked with, he's not the most charismatic, inspiring, eloquent, forward, original, perceptive, intellectual, tech-savvy, exciting, or assertive. But his STRENGTHS far outweigh these limitations: He is persistent in his efforts. He is determined to be an ally on the road to victory, offering extra support when needed, never conceding defeat. He is compassionate, showing empathy for my experiences & struggles, frustrations and pain, & and my initial often-pessimistic attitude. He is patient, and will put in the time to understand, listen, and reevaluate / regroup when necessary. He is humble and modest, not expecting recognition, praise, notoriety, credit, or gratitude for going above and beyond. He is affordable, & ends up charging far less money than he could for his time, and far less than any of the other life coaches I considered, let alone being a mere fraction of the cost of a therapist or psychiatrist! He is respectful, as a friend would be, but sensitive & honors any boundaries I set. He never speaks down to me. He is honest, and when requested, very candid about what he thinks needs improvement, more, focus, or a shift in perception. He doesn’t rub me the wrong way as a salesman might, as though I’m a source of income, but always treats me like a person who deserves to achieve his dreams. He is passionate about helping people. He works very hard, often going above and beyond what others would do, putting his clients ahead of his personal life. He is fair, respects agreements, honors his word, readily forgives, and shows lenience. He is creative, willing to try to approach problems from new perspectives and angles. He is open-minded, willing to work with approaches and systems he’s unfamiliar with that I know are likely to be effective. He is trusting, and gives me the benefit of the doubt, while also helping me to become more accountable. He is reliable, and I have been able to count on him in ways I couldn’t count on therapists, employees, mentors, friends, & family. His system of "open access" helps me throughout the week, and this unique system of coaching has been the key to my success, helping me beat procrastination and not lose sight of my goals. He is flexible, & accommodates limitations, changes, and conflicts with my schedule, deficiencies in my attitude, and treats my perceived failures like learning opportunities to take a new, more promising approach. He is resilient, and puts up with much more than necessary for someone in his position, and never complained once to me about it. Finally, he is kind, complimentary, and friendly. He's like that 'conscience on your shoulder.' I would recommend him to anyone who is considering hiring a life coach, or to anyone who has unfulfilled dreams they know they deserve to and could achieve, but haven't. Thank you, Tom, for your efforts, and quality work :)

Dreanne was AMAZING to work with!! He went above and beyond to make the visuals come to life. Went out of his way to bring me the right props, even thought it was not a part of the deal. My friends had a great time on the shoot. They loved him so much that they want to see him every time they go to the city. I can not say enough great things about him. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We're off to a great start! I just signed on for a 3 month life coaching cycle with Jerry and am very pleased. I had my 1st coaching skype session earlier this week and gained much clarity and many useful takeaways both through our session and through the discovery questionnaire she gave me to do prior. Life is already feeling better. Jerry is very responsive, kind and professional!

Justin is a true pro. Very valuable coaching in preparation for a business presentation I was giving. He asked good questions to understand the context of the situation and tailored his coaching to that specific opportunity. Great insights on the importance of the physical/mental connection needed to help make a successful speech. Always on time. I highly recommend Justin to any interested in improving their public speaking skills.

There are a ton of great things I can say about Shawn, and his abilities as a comedy/improv coach. I think the biggest compliment I can say is that he has a true passion for what he does, and it shows every time I work with him. His passion makes him such a pleasure to work with and be coached by. No matter your skill level, he treats you as an equal, and just wants you to get better (while having fun). I highly recommend him if you are looking to become a better improviser, comedian, or salesperson. I know he helped me with all three.

I completely, wholeheartedly recommend Jeanine. It was my first time working with a coach and, of the 15 or so coaches that I did intro calls with, I connected right off the bat with Jeanine's warmth, intuition and understanding. She's changed my life. In our time together, I grew more than I could've imagined in just a few months. I relearned how to connect with my intuition and to act on it. I nurtured a profound, deeper trust in myself and the universe. I reopened myself to the world to be the giver that I am at my core. And I found the courage to speak my truth and step into my full bigness and wholeness of being. Her use of guided visualization is so powerful and has opened up worlds and tools that I will use for the rest of my life. Most importantly, I feel that Jeanine approaches her clients as more than just clients but as humans that she deeply cares about and roots for. I feel unconditionally supported and cherished by her. Jeanine is incredible and I can't recommend her enough!

I truly enjoyed working with Brent. I feel like he really takes the time to listen deeply into what you are saying. I felt heard and understood, which is something I don't say often. We only worked together for a few months, but it was a great few months. He always maintains eye contact and shows great care and compassion. We shared an amazing moment during our work together where I felt like he truly understood where I was coming from and I began to cry. This is something that I don't mind sharing because it just shows how much Brent really takes the time to make you feel comfortable and heard. I highly recommend Brent as a coach.

Patricia' mentoring helped me to significantly achieve professional and personal growth through her knowledge and expertise. Her one-on-one coaching provided strategies for me to implement to reach my goals professionally. Her trust and insight was invaluable to me to achieve a positive work-life balance and a job satisfaction!

I was initially skeptical about "life" coaching. Why would I need it if everything seemed “ok"? On my journey with Eli I discovered that “ok” is acceptable, but abundance is a conscious choice and there for the taking - if I wanted it. And not only did I want it - I found it. Eli is incredibly smart and intuitive, creative and able to think out of the box yet very structured in his approach. I felt his experience in professional sports was unusual and refreshing- and greatly benefitted our interaction. I liked the elegance of his thinking process, his flexibility and his ability to listen and ask the right questions. Many times over, he challenged me to think outside of my comfort zone. Identifying and addressing certain issues and hence developing strategies together was an amazing process which made me feel empowered and in control.

"Christina had explained the benefit of organizing your LIFE once you finish organizing your space. Once we finished organizing my house, (which was life changing because it brought me so much joy!) we started our lifestyle coaching sessions. It’s the perfect transition for me to address thoughts and ideas that I always think about, but never act upon. By working with Christina I have realized that dreams can come true! We are working together to bring them to life! By putting my goals and dreams into categories and then prioritizing them, Christina helped me formulate steps to capture the experiences that might have escaped, because life is short! I am so lucky and happy to be working with you!!! I LOVE your youth, spirit and wisdom. You are truly something." ~Cathy, Wyckoff NJ

I am so thankful that I found Evan Kirstein. He has been my ADHD coach for the last 5 months, and my life has taken a turn for the much better. Thanks to his deep understanding of ADHD and his understated communication style, I feel like I have regained a strong sense of inner trust and self-reliance, and I am learning to live up to my potential on a daily basis. He was insightful and also knew when to talk and when to listen. We worked on self discipline of practicing music, work and diet. I enjoyed our sessions and have benefited from them.

I’ve always been intimidated with working out. As a professional body builder, she knows how to scale workouts to all levels. She’s very knowledgeable, compassionate, and fun to workout with. I lead a very busy life and she is always working to accommodate the needs of all her clients. I’ve been working out with her for 6 weeks now and I see small changes in how my clothes fit and surely a lot more definition. With the meal plan she has me on, I see my belly become smaller and smaller on a weekly basis! Only 6 weeks in and I’m super satisfied! I’ll add pics on 6 months and 12 months!
