Testimonials

“I totally and completely enjoyed the Inner Bootcamp. I am happier and less stressed. I have learned to count the successes, not the shortcomings. I am better at taking time for myself and not feeling guilty about it. I had fun in the classes with some like-minded ladies. The eye bag is getting regular and frequent use. It opened me up to future potential.
.
I just asked my husband if he noticed a difference and he said, ‘You are much easier to get along with.'”

“Being a single parent, guiding and helping my two children into becoming confident and trustworthy people, I have learned I need to look after me before I can help other people in my life. Never commit to something you are not going to do. I would lose myself in other people’s lives by not taking care of me. My daughter said that I am really taking the time to listen to what she is telling me, not just trying to fix the situation. More activities to help bring out how we are feeling, so we channel our feelings in positive ways.”

“My Name is Dawn Pringle-Ettinger and I guess I had writers block because… I wrote all my life but couldn’t get it on paper to write my book. My dream was to be published. Then Angela called me and we went through a long list of questions, some were repetitive and I wondered why? But after, I felt so different and free, like I had opened a bright new window!!  When she finished she said, “I’ll call and check on you next week to see if you have started writing your book…”  I completed my book that weekend!!  She called and said, “Did you start?” And I said, “It’s done!!” 🙂 Angela, is an amazing person and a very positive, encouraging, supportive, coach, and now dear friend!!”

“When I was asked to attend your first wellness group I was delighted to be asked. I did not know what lay ahead of me; however I was willing to join up knowing that anything that you had to offer would be worth my while. I have so much respect for you and it certainly has been worth my while beyond any of my wildness dreams.
.
What impressed me was that if you wanted to you could share anything. No judgment was ever placed or passed on any one of us. You never made us feel pressured and we could always pass if needed.
.
I feel that the bond that was made with this special group of women will be life lasting. We were able to laugh together and cry together.
.
A true sisterhood for sure.
.
The outcome for me has allowed me to be the best Kathy Vanderkooi that I can be. I have been able to see and plan my direction in life and not be afraid of the outcome. I have released my past and look forward to a bright future. I  also know that once I had spoken my dreams out loud, it encouraged me to move on it and make things happen.
.
I have a vision for 2012 and I do not think that I would have the confidence needed to move on in my life without the support of this group and you, Angela.
.
Sometimes we feel trapped.
.
I feel that I have found my wings, and I am able to soar and have the freedom to know what I want, and I plan to succeed in my journey. The wellness group has been a wonderful gift to me and I will always be grateful for the first invitation that I received in the mail, never knowing what to expect. However, willing to accept it.”

Your Friend always,
Kathy

.
In participating with Angela, her passion and her enthusiasm is delightfully infectious.”
