The part of this workshop that was most useful to me was the part where we need to be ‘above the rim’ in everything we do in life and to never give up no matter how hard the times may be. We touched on real life experience and problems. This seminar was the best decision I made and I would do it over and over again if I could.”

Diva Turner, Chicago, IL

I would highly recommend Marcus, his enthusiasm is contagious – he not only knows his content he knows how to share it in a very attention-grabbing way

Tony Barrett - Director Quality Improvement

I enjoyed the entire workshop. Most useful was the affirmations and the proactivity part of the workshop.
