I decided to hire a Life Coach to talk to 22 young men and women in their early '20s who were uncertain about their future as they were entering the real world. They were anxious, afraid, unsure, many with low self-esteem (though many had done great in their respective colleges) and just didn't know what steps were necessary to not only blend in but excel in their jobs or positions they were looking for in their fields. We had the pleasure of bringing in Mr. Stone who with his larger than life personality, confidence and assurance woke the group up and explained that there was a path out of the woods, you just had to be shown where the clearing was and the rest would take care of itself. He listened carefully to many of the young people, and made sure everyone who spoke felt like their question meant something, assimilated down the fundamentals that were collectively necessary to get them to realize there was an answer; and more than one answer to their issue(s). Through his entrepreneurial background as an Investment Banker to a Producer in Hollywood, to a Private Jet Executive to a Manager of the top 100 Poker Players in the world to being an International Real Estate Executive doing transactions worldwide; his talk just captivated the audience with stories of the down and out (some well known) who turned their lives around using the right tools and told those in the audience they were far ahead of the earlier mentioned people he spoke about in his stories; and he knows exactly how to tell a story that not only moved the youngsters but everyone in the room. He is one of those people that just knows how to say the right thing to the right person and the energy level and enthusiasm just grew and became contagious which was quite a feeling. Though he is a Certified Life Coach which the youngsters never really cared to much about but it seems that his "real" experiences got the students emotionally invested in him and in the fact that they had a plan and map that was the beginning to getting themselves to where they want to go. I can't think of anyone I know who could have turned this room around so when they left the speech they felt better about themselves and their futures. He is the Real Deal!
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 doesnt rub me the wrong way as a salesman might, as though Im 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 hes 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 couldnt 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 :)
Absolutey excellent job I've never had a constant coach at my fingertips Was excellent to have someone with me on the journey Down 29 lbs. feeling great and high energy
Nick made each lesson engaging and fun. I found myself looking forward to the next lesson. He is extremely knowledgeable and always found a way to make the lesson relatable. He provided me with many useful test taking tips and tricks. As a result of Nick's coaching, I experienced a significant increase in my test scores.
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.
Gabriella's knowledge and experience as a life coach are surpassed only by her creativity as she makes it fun and easy to make her lessons meaningful and applicable in our daily lives. For me saying out loud to someone, this is what I want to do, started the process. Knowing that I had to be accountable motivated me. Gabriella suggested I set my goals incrementally; this is something I would have not done myself. As a result of this, I attained my goals and feel better about myself. Clearly, her enthusiasm is a testament to her commitment to helping others make healthier lifestyle changes.
Jeanine has been great! I simply can’t say enough! She has helped me through a relationship crisis and helped get me through the “construction zone” wonderful life coach
I’ve never had someone that cared so much about me as a whole. It wasn’t just therapy for her. Her dedication and passion helped me get through the roughest times in life. I don’t think I’ll ever find another therapist as wonderful in my life.
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.
Rick Gioiello has an intuitive/innate sense to coaching among other talents, and knows where the work is needed. With upfront honesty and intense compassion , he gives advice/direction making one feel comfortable and allowing that vulnerable side to shine, I have personally felt I have learned something new after sessions with him, and as a result booked a role on a short film. He has also helped me with audition clips and is an awesome photographer . He takes his work seriously and passionately and it shows brilliantly. -Gina Rados-
Gary is an outstanding Life Coach. He is insightful, and draws from a wealth of personal experiences which I can relate to. I come out of each meeting energized, and with a new prospective that I would never have gotten on my own. Living in the fast pace world of finance and constantly wanting more out of life and my career, Gary has helped me appreciate the success that I've already earned and also embrace the journey while still looking ahead to the next achievement.

Aaron, head trainer/coach of WellThrive Elite is an exceptional wellness provider. He is fully versed in all necessary components of the medical and sports fields with unparalleled knowledge. Conscientious, discerning, and honest – he really cares about my results and shows it. He affords me the best training including ARX to build strength, martial arts exercise and nutrition advice to lose weight, and bodywork to de-stress and reduce soreness after workout. All done with humor, a genial attitude and big smile. A rare find indeed; you win the lottery with this guy!
My experience with Patricia involved personal life coaching sessions on a professional development level over a two year period. 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!
This person is the real coach with his craft and mission. He worked on my basic flaws when we were outing and right away help me to go from quirky to best version of myself. I will hire him again when it comes to modern day hitching!
He's done a really good job in getting me out of my comfort zone and getting me to get open with my emotions. This is definitely different than previous life coaches and I've enjoyed it a lot :)
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.
Victoria, is quite a talent! My wife and I met with her for about 45 minutes and she presented me with a handout script for me to read out loud and then critique me over and over again until I improved somewhat, as it’s still a work in progress but I think she’s well worth the money.
On my very first appointment I felt comfortable and relaxed. We talked for a while about life and happenings and then ended with some Reiki. I made my next appointment before leaving. Claire was compassionate and intuitive.
Working with Ellen has been an absolute pleasure! This was my first experience with a life coach and her experience, along with sound advice, has been incredibly insightful. She is a straight shooter, professional, and great listener with an attentive memory and desire to help her clients achieve their goals. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking to take serious action in their life and/or ensure they are on the right path to succeed.
David is by far not your ordinary image consultant! His expertise, knowledge, and sense of style aims to set you up for success both professionally and personally. He brings the best out of you (externally) by understanding and exposing what is within you (internally). In other words, your revamped image is based on your personality. This builds and creates "true" image, and individual style and stamina for the long-term! Not only that, he goes over and beyond by providing you positive feedback as a mentor and life coach. At the end of the day, thanks David - I nailed that interview! :-) You are the real deal!
