Craig is a nice combination of a motivational speaker and a career coach. He guided me on improving my resume, cover letter and pursuing careers in companies that I would like to be a part of, instead of settling for any job. I highly recommend Craig for anyone who has been looking for the "right" job with no success and needs a new approach in their search!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

About a year ago I went through a very hard time in my life and was diagnosed with anxiety and panic disorder. I was unable to leave my home and my life was at a stand still. After speaking with Christa I decided to hire her as my life coach to try and help me out of my darkness. That was the best decision I have ever made. Through her caring knowledge and professionalism she pulled me out of the worst time in my life. She coached me through every doctors appointment and guided me through the toughest of days. To this day I still need her help and coaching to get through some of my daily tasks.

Oscar is an outstanding, reliable and knowledgeable personal trainer. For more than a year, he's been training me at my home gym about twice a week, with the goal of improving my overall speed, balance and power for running. Oscar's training methods are well-structured but flexible and never boring, because he's always teaching me new exercises and stretches. In that time, thanks to the work we've done, I've seen improvements in my overall health and fitness. A nice side effect of working out with Oscar is the occasional question: "Nice abs! Do you work out?" I highly recommend iBE-K Fitness services!

THE SHORT REVIEW I had an amazing hypnosis experience with Elena Beloff. In short, I found Elena to be very professional, kind natured an extremely talented. I would advise anyone interested in hypnosis to leap at the opportunity to work with her. THE LONG REVIEW I am a professional actor, and I had been experiencing debilitating nerves surrounding auditions. After interviewing me and asking questions about the issues that might be causing my anxiety, Elena tailored her hypnosis suggestions to my particular needs. It never felt like she was rehashing some canned script that she uses for every client she sees (not that that would really matter, I suppose). Her calm and reassuring tone was equally matched to the confidence behind her words. She new she could help me, and that gave me great confidence. THE OVERALL RESULT I waited to post this review until I'd had an audition so I could give an honest assessment. The result: After three solid auditions with little or nerves, I relieved to say that I feel completely 85% - 95% better. Before working with Elena, I was stammering over my lines, I was unable to stay in the moment; and I had horrible cotton mouth--not an ideal circumstance for a "so-called" professional. After working with Elena, I approach each audition like it's part of the job; I am calm and even excited before entering the room (very new); and most importantly, I am nailing the work. No castings yet, but the feedback I'm getting is in a different universe. Once again, if you are in search of a qualified, professional hypnotist, you should leap at the opportunity to work with Elena Beloff.

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.

I hired Sara Elise to speak at a young adult forum regarding budgeting practices and college prep... she was phenomenal! She was very professional when dealing with us and arranging logistics, then very laid back and personable when speaking with the youth, which allowed many of them to feel an instant connection with her. I have never received so many requests to send thank you notes from the students. Plus, she really knows her stuff! I would highly recommend Sara Elise and definitely plan to work with her in the future.
