We asked Vladimire to come speak to college aged students. She was flexible and worked with our requests. She engaged our students with a relevant motivational topic, and had a great presence in the room. Students enjoyed listening to her speak and felt inspired to succeed. Vladimire was professional and courteous throughout the whole experience. We would recommend her as a motivational speaker.

We had the pleasure of working with Father Callahan. He was very helpful, punctual and such a kind speaker. He even arrived earlier. We were blown away by his sermon and it made our Roman Catholic ceremony that much special. Our friends and family were delighted with the father too. They were deeply moved to tears. We're native Spanish speakers and he added a Spanish passage to the ceremony. We can't thank him enough!

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!”

Training with Mason may be the best investment you can make in yourself. He's been able to help me fully understand how to work out properly ensuring that old injuries do not occur again. He shares his expertise and his experience with you to make the sessions fun, challenging, and a learning experience. He is not only professional, incredibly knowledgeable about exercises and movement but Mason's charisma is infectious. He truly wants to see you succeed, maybe even more than you do. He sends awesome motivational messages to his trainees and always follows up. If you want a life changing trainer, Mason is your guy!!

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!!

    Patricia Diesel's Life coaching approach and unique one-on-one partnership offered a different technique. Her phone coaching with my decision to invest time to a new way of thinking, preparing and taking action not only brought great success for emptying my storage unit on time, but a transformation in me happened as well. I became empowered and applied the reality of my abilities, values, and accountability to repeatedly bring about a positive result. I take away from this a tool box of skills unique to my strengths, abilities and mindset for success is ready to bring out for all future projects and goals. Her instruction was wonderful but it was her encouragement that brought life to it. Thank you, Patricia!

    I had the pleasure of hosting Strongman Eric Moss for an event at Montclair State University in November of 2015. As a professor of world religions I am always looking for ways to offer practical extensions of the different spiritual practices I teach in my class. In my quest to find interesting speakers to demonstrate the determination and focus of the great eastern philosophies, I found Eric Moss. He had already spoken multiple times in Sports Psychology classes here at the university and came highly recommended. Eric arrived prepared with audio visual enhancements, props, and his outstanding story telling talent. My students were captivated. It is difficult to hold my students attention sometimes, but when they sit for an entire presentation without once looking at their phones you know they're interested. Eric does more than simply bend steel, a feat that is amazing in itself. He weaves a life story into his demonstration that humanizes his show of strength. Although you may not leave with the ability to bend steel, you will leave with a new mindset that lends itself to high achievement. I highly recommend Eric Moss as a speaker for corporate events, professional development, schools, clubs, and gatherings for all ages. His professionalism and talent are laudable. His presentation is uniquely engaging and the positive motivation he provides is priceless. Most Sincerely, Prof Lisa Sargese Dept of Religion Montclair State University

    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.

    Coach Monique spoke to our organization during our celebration of National Business Women’s Week. As an organization of business professional women, Monique gave us tips on reducing stress and harnessing our thoughts to help improve our skills both in/out of the workplace. Coach Monique was excellent in communicating with our group and delivered a tailored inspirational message aligning with our group’s mission. Her communication was outstanding in responding to our email inquiries and answering questions quickly. Days later, and we are still receiving messages from our members and guests regarding how they thoroughly enjoyed Monique. Several members have also commented they have implemented her tips for stress reduction and already have been seeing a change in their life and routine.

    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.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
