I've had the good fortune to know Tom for much of our adult lives. He's a natural motivator and communicator. After achieving a great deal of professional success at the expense of my personal life, I recently found myself rudderless and adrift (both personally and professionally). Tom was able to deftly and compassionately call me out on the choices and attitudes that had led to the dysfunction in my life and helped set me on a course to greater wellness and fulfillment. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone who is ready to take themselves to the next level and is willing to do the hard work to get there.

    Having a very busy office job spending many hours each day at the computer, combined with being an AVID recreational tennis player who spends at least ten hours a week on the courts, I was desperately in need of a personal trainer who could help me squeeze in an invigorating, and sport specific, training schedule two days a week. To say that I found the epitome of that person in Prisco is an understatement. He is a personal trainer whose professionalism, knowledge, intuition, challenging nature and patience produce a workout that is exactly what I was looking for. Prisco always tailors our time to get the utmost out of each session. His encouragement in helping me to strive for better endurance and strength was optimal in getting me to work harder and to achieve my goals.

    Patrick is a pleasure to work with and creates HUGE results! His organizational skills and straightforward approach, balanced with a unique level of sensitivity and intuition, are motivating and inspiring. He has transformed the way that I run my business and has given me incredibly valuable tools. I owe a great deal of my success and most importantly, my happiness, to what he has brought to my life. I have witnessed first-hand the eye for detail that Patrick brings to all of his work. His experience creating high-performing teams, recruiting, building successful business models, navigating professional and personal situations is unparalleled. He truly is the full-package of support and coaching.

    Les was an excellent speaker, coach & motivator. He did a thorough discovery process with us to determine exactly what we were looking to achieve & catered the day around our goals. He was very engaging with everyone & has a great sense of humor. Newer agents gained much needed tools & insight, while tenured agents found the information to be a great refresher for their skill sets, even learning some new items along the way. I would highly recommend Les Lent for your next Seminar or Training session - you & your employees will walk away feeling empowered!

    “I love being a creative, but I’m horrible at self-promotion. Michelle is a natural at bringing out the best in others and helping them stand out from the crowd. She has been my chief editor and general promotions manager for almost 5 years now and I don’t know what I’d do without her. She initially presented me with a promotional plan, calendar, and a strict to-do list and because I listened to her advice, I can say that the sales for my music and book have increased by at least 30%! I only know this because she presents me with stat reports on a regular basis – all I know is that I have been busier than ever with one speaking or singing engagement after another. My motivational speaking career is also finally taking off and I have been invited to speak at charity events all over California. My story is getting out there and I couldn’t be happier. She asks me often, “How are you doing? Can you handle more?” To which I say, “Yes, bring it on!” Here’s one example, while planning a personal vacation in Italy this last summer, I knew about a music festival and told Michelle about it. One call from her and I was booked to perform live on the stage in Italy! I’m sure there were more negotiations behind it than that, but all I had to do was show up. My advice? Be good at what you do and let Michelle be good at what she does, helping you shine.”

    Dynamic speaker and teacher! I loved hearing about her life experiences as well as her healing process through brokenness. She is funny, relatable and authentic. She would be great for all ages, women's groups, keynote at luncheons, anything sports related, teen events, conferences or club functions.

        Jacob is hands down the best trainer I've ever had. He is honest, energetic, motivating and very serious about working out. He loves coming to the gym everyday to kick your butt, but you will love him for it when you see the results lol! He cares about you as a person as well as a client. He uses his training sessions to uplift and build confidence. So you can say he's like a counselor as well. DEFINITELY train with him. You will not regret it!

        Blair is prompt to reply to all of my correspondence and questions- very professional and a man of his word. During our first session Blair put me through a series of 'tests' to see how my body moved in order to design the best program for me. He worked with the resources I had available (i.e. the equipment in my apartment building's gym) and also suggested some low cost equipment that would enhance my routine. His knowledge of physical fitness is immense and I admit I didn't understand a few of the terms he used- but he made sure I understood the most important parts. He watched me like a hawk and gave simple and direct advice on how to correct my form. The workout he designed was simple and yet very impactful- it left me feeling energized and motivated to work out more. I highly recommend Blair- he's a professional with tons of experience in training.

        We booked Ali for a smaller, more intimate speaking event (under 100 people). We ultimately ended up selecting Ali over other speakers because of her unique voice and her storytelling ability. Ali is real, engaging and she uses humor to tell her story in a way that’s relatable to all. When you hear “cancer survivor” you may initially think that the content will be heavy and may not appeal to a broad audience. However, Ali’s story is more about how a moment in time (i.e. a Stage IV cancer diagnosis) can change your life and career trajectory. At it's core, her story is about pursuing your passions and living life to its fullest. An important message that we all need to be reminded of from time to time. I highly recommend Ali.

        What a life changing experience to work with Saba. She helped to me find my purpose and passion which ultimately changed my life for the better. I walked aimlessly without knowing what my calling was. Without her knowledge and wisdom to help bring out the drive, motivation and will power I had inside myself, I wouldn't be where I am today.

        I attended an event at which David was the keynote speaker. He was uplifting, inspiring, and funny. I believe those are the most important goals for a speaker to attain, and David was spot on. He truly entertained his audience.

        Sandy is an outstanding professional speaker who masterfully communicates her skills to others. Sandy has helped me become a more confident speaker, As a nutrition educator, it is important that I am able to effectively communicate my message to my audience. With Sandy's coaching, I'm now much more able to focus my message on what I know is important to my audience. And one more thing - working with Sandy is fun! Thanks Sandy!
