I like working with Katie. She's a professional and very knowledgable. She knows when to challenge me, and when to ease up. She's also very motivating. You won't be disappointed working with her!

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

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!!

    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.

    The need for confidence, resiliency and stress management are huge for realtors. Between housing market fluctuations, the economy and the sales cycle, it can often be feast or famine and realtors who aren't positive, have realistic optimism and tenacity aren't going to last. Monique spoke at our sales conference and did a fantastic job. She educated us on brain-science and emotional intelligence and why we struggle and then taught us easy tools and techniques to overcome it. If you are looking for an engaging, funny and professional speaker, Monique should be your next call.

    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.

    It is a pleasure to be coached by Deidre. She has coached me multiple occasions throughout the years. She has shown me how to confidently step out of my comfort zone. She is patient and grounded in maintaining a positive outlook in all situations. She will take you to the top of your goal list with a step by step coaching plan. She has helped me with my career and kept me motivated to stay on track with my career goals. If she caught me slipping she put her foot down because she wants to see me win. She is like the personal trainer at the gym that pushes you to the point you want to give up. Then you see the results and come running back for her services. I work with her to this day and she is my go to person in all areas of my life. She has the expertise to make your goals a reality. I highly recommend her coaching services if you want to make your dream goals a reality. Deidre is definitely the person to hire for all your aspirations.

    Daniel was an excellent trainer, but more importantly a kind and reliable professional. He was very understanding and accommodating with sudden changes to my schedule. After working with him for a few weeks, I experienced increased strength and began to see changes to my body. I definitely recommend him to anyone who needs that extra push to achieve their fitness goal.

    I have known of Blacklight for a while through my sister. I would read his posts on Facebook and ALWAYS be so inspired by them. I appreciated everything he would share with the world on inspired living. He also worked with my sister as a coach/counselor. My sister would share about how helpful he was in her life. Sharing tid bits of advice he would offer to her. Then I started looking for some help in my life, and realized that Blacklight would be a great match. Blacklight and I have been working together for about a year and a half. It has been life changing. When we started working together I swore I could not be an organized scheduled person. Now I live by planning my week, staying on track, and completing goals. Blacklight holds me accountable to my commitments, while inspiring and motivating to conquer the next frontiers of my dreams, and in my relationships. Blacklight is helpful on a practical front, with the how to organize your life front. But he is also a great ear for emotional/relationship work. He can set you up on working on your affirmations, finding your affirmations, working on how to properly communicate with your partner, definitely has some parenting advice to share, and is an all around ball of firey inspiration to my life!!! Everytime I get off the phone with him. If I feel like. "Ok, I can rock this life thing!!" Thank you Blacklight for choosing to be an inspiration to many, and more specifically thank you for helping me, motivating me, encouraging me, and listening listening and listening to me.

      About

      Karen Purcell, M.M., N.D., C.N., is The Diva Doc's naturopathic physician, professional speaker and opera singer. My career aspirations as an opera singer were dashed because of an ongoing illness. Eventually, I found natural medicine. I was amazed that it worked so well that I was able to sing all over the world. Later, I studied naturopathic medicine, herbalism, nutrition, stress reduction and homeopathy. It has been my privilege to work with people of all ages and from all walks of life. They call me The Diva Doc because of my performance history and my sparkle. Now, I can do everything -- treat patients, sing, teach and speak professionally to many groups.
