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!”

Mason has helped me with these goals, tremendously, in a short time. He is courteous, professional, on time and highly motivational.

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

Life isn't always easy. The answers are not always clear and sometimes the questions are not even clear. It has taken me a long time to realize that this is okay. It's okay if you need someone to steer you back to the path you want to be on. I have been blessed to have Gabriella come into my life, she has time and again grounded me and helped me see my potential as a spiritual being. Her talents are far and wide and traverse the scope of enlightenment. She makes it attainable, everything you could ever want is within your power to have. She encourages strength and hope in times of despair and unhappiness. Gabriella is a down to earth person, positive, motivational, and spiritual woman. I cannot say how grateful I am to have her on my team when things get rough. She helped me and continues to help me with my biggest problem....clarity..That there is more out in the universe planned for me and all I have to do is have strength and mindfulness within myself to attain it. The gift she has to offer the people who seek it is absolutely priceless.

    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!!

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!

    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.

      Victoria is an incredible speaker. I work for a large technology company and asked her to come speak to our Women's Group. Her talk covered her background, what it's like to be a women in VC and her SoSheDid nonprofit. The talk resonated with both men and women, particularly her views on building a dream career and making the most out of work opportunities. We are looking forward to bringing her in again!

      It is with great confidence and pleasure that I highly recommend Betsi Rosen as your new coach. Fear kept me in a safe place in life, but wth Betsi's expert guidance, I was able to go further and take the steps needed to propel myself to the next level. She was dynamic, charismatic and creative in her approach. I was able to draw a much clearer and more concise picture of my abilities and goals. I received concrete formulas to use which helped to motivate and encourage me. Through her, I was able to discover strengths I did not even know I had! Do not hesitate to utilize her knowledge, empathy and phenomenal skills to your full advantage.

      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.

      I have known and worked with Nora for a number of years and can't recommend her highly enough. As a speaker, she is a great combination of analytical and insightful, while deeply engaging the audience and using humor and personal experience to "keep it real". I've also worked with her as a coach where she is incredibly responsive, helpful, and warm, while digging into the heart of the matter and delivering, real, transformational advice and support. Nora is awesome!

      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. After working with Amesha I would strongly recommend her motivational speaking for any future event, either inside or outside of my company.

      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.

      You will be hard pressed to find a more captivating speaker. I’ve attended several of Mr. Buchanan’s events. I have found each to be life-affirming, engaging and entertaining. These were not mere canned presentations, but events particularly tailored to the audience. A great many were talking about it for months and even years after.
