Read their touching stories of growth and success.


MEET LIZ
“This is going to sound weird, but, you gave me a bit more courage to be myself. After hearing you speak, I realized that I rarely act like myself. I’m not sure why I don’t live as my authentic self. My goal is to do the exercises in your book because I truly believe that it’s my time to live life as myself.”

MEET SCOTT
“Your seminar inspired me to take action and start to pursue what it will take to become a Police Officer. I have just began the process and it is very early in the game. It appears that it is attainable with some work on my part. I have began power walking and running 6 miles every night with my wife and eating right 15 pounds off since your seminar another 100 or so to go. Just getting up and doing something about it has made the motivation to continue on the journey much easier. Thank you I will keep you posted along the journey. Its funny how you know what you need to do but don’t until you hear it in the right form from someone else.”

MEET RACHELLE
“Of all the classes I have taken with the state and in ministry, this truly was the most meaningful for me. I realized that I have allowed bad choices, which usually were wrapped around taking care of someone else or pleasing someone else hoping I would find happiness, to get me where I was 2 and a half years ago. I have been on a journey to find myself and my destiny, and like you my hope is to help others to realize we do have choices and the right to make good ones. It is not selfish to say no to someone that is standing in the way of our destiny, instead of feeling as if we have to settle because we are not valuable enough. Slowly but surely I am growing out of those choices. You have definitely encouraged me. I have my 3 ring binder and am on my way to wherever and whatever I have been called to do.”

MEET MARY
“After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in December 2004, my health forced me to leave the warehouse and transition to an office job. I started working at the office 4 years ago and it has been a struggle to find a "fit". Your talk helped me to see that by focusing, doing the work (even though I might HATE it) that I can again find passion in my work. Thank you for inspiring me. Now I know that it is OK to HATE going to the gym--- but as long as I go, I don't have anything to feel guilty about.”

MEET DONALD
“As a manager I need all the skills that I can get to cope with the stresses and demands placed on me as well as the ones that I place on myself. I found your course interesting and helpful. Being able to sort the origin of the source (work- personal-financial) as well as deciphering what you can and can’t control and then controlling how you react instead of just reacting are valuable skills.” 

“I have attended many management training programs, leadership conferences, and technical training seminars throughout my thirty-year career in the field, and I can honestly say that you are one of the best, if not the best, Facilitator I’ve encountered.” 
–Dave Kolakowski, Senior Director, Hawaiian Airlines

“Sandra’s presentations are always high energy, informative and fun.  She does a great job engaging the audience.  Attendance is always high when Sandra is in the house!”
–Nancy Griese, Vice President, Costco Wholesale

“As the facilitator for High Performance Work Teams at Boeing, I want you to know how much I enjoyed your seminar.  You were not only humorous, but entertaining and creative in your approach.  You were such a pleasure and I left that day feeling inspired, re-energized and full of great ideas that I could not wait to share with my team.”
–Tammy Sullivan, Employee Facilitator, The Boeing Company
