I recently hired Mr. King to assist me as a life coach and found his insight and direction incredibly helpful. What impressed me most about his coaching was his ability to listen to my specific challenges and provide extremely personalized advice on steps to take for me to move forward. He even spent extra time with me from our scheduled amount to make sure that we covered everything and I completely understood what to do next. I'm happy to say that several months have passed and, after taking the suggestions of Mr. King, many positive developments have occurred as pertaining to my specific situation. I would highly recommend his services to any interested parties.

As a busy mom, wife and traveling professional and speaker, I attend conferences and events across the country. I typically go to my standard, black or navy blue dress or suits - but after my discovery session with Shayla, attending her online workshops and virtual styling advice, I felt like I could take my wardrobe to the next level. She gives great advice on mixing colors, patterns and outfit suggestions that fit your style and body type - which is important for me when speaking in front of a crowd of colleagues. The past 2 conferences I’ve attended, Shayla has helped me immediately with virtual styling and I felt like I not only commanded to room, but I felt proud and confident to include my personality in my professional style. Shayla has amazing style, expertise and is so willing to help. Shayla, I can’t thank you enough! Joy Rush, Virtual Style Client

Markita is an exceptionally gifted speaker. Her subject matter knowledge and expertise are above the charts, yet she can explain the most complex concepts and processes in a way that even a second grader can understand them. Additionally, she is patient and wise, able to teach, instruct, and guide anyone who is willing. Markita is definitely one of the best speakers and teachers I've been privileged to hear.

    Rita Ricks is an excellent life/spiritual coach. Rita is committed to her clients well being and life. She is easy to talk with, listens well and design sessions that meets her client’s needs. And to meet clients needs she use various media and various program options ( no cookie cutter ). I have had a series of coaching session that helped me developed visons and goals . But more importantly had me do the self-reflection and guidance I needed to achieve them. . She has a weekly radio station program where she has interesting speakers, themes and topics. I have attended several workgroups that she has lead masterfully; e.g. silence /mindfulness, end of the year reflection session She also has topical network sessions opportunities where people can meet and socialize. And right now I am enjoying weekday lunch time periscope session. What she says is always good and on point, so I frequently recommend her to others and share her nuggets of wisdom to my own network and my women’s leadership class at work
