TESTIMONIALS

I’ve always felt that if you want to know the character of person, you ask people who know them well.   

This page includes a combination of traditional client reviews and testimonial interviews that were conducted on our behalf by a third party in order to get candid, honest testimonials.  They speak for themselves.

Working with Heidi was one of the best investments I’ve ever made for myself. She has a way of bringing out the truth without you feeling judged. Her passion for personal growth is obvious when she is fully committed to you in each session and beyond. I highly recommend Heidi as a life coach to anyone wanting to grow personally, professionally, spiritually and improve their self-confidence.

Heidi is a compassionate and gracious coach. She has a way of walking with you in kindness and validation of what you're sharing/struggling with while also challenging you to grow and the best version of yourself. She gets to know you as a whole person and it becomes very apparent that she doesn't use a cookie-cutter approach but rather is very intentional about creating customized coaching and guidance. She helped bolster me and was so encouraging of me in my growth journey. One of my biggest take-aways from my 3 months of coaching with Heidi was to have more compassion for myself on the journey that I'm on. I am almost 40 years old and this was my first time ever being officially coached in my life. I am so thankful I went for and invested in myself in this way. I am worth it, you are worth it, if you're thinking of going for it, DO IT! You won't regret it for a single moment.

Heidi is such a genuine, intuitive soul. My 8 coaching sessions with her were really eye-opening and helped me uncover some unconscious beliefs I still had. I love how encouraging she was to inspire me to get on a morning routine, to be intentional with my time and decisions, but to also have grace for myself when I fell off course. Heidi truly wants the best life for everyone and the love and passion she has in guiding her clients to be the best version of themselves is undeniable. I would highly recommend her to anyone to go to the next level in self-discovery, professional development and/or meaningful relationships.

Heidi is probably one of the most real and understanding women I’ve ever met! The wisdom and grace she imparted to me in our short 8 weeks will live with me a lifetime! She was real and willing to share her struggles and life experiences with me and the things that helped her to learn, grow and love others and herself thru them! If you are considering working with her please JUST DO IT and be blessed ♥️

If you could describe Ryan in a sentence, what words would you use?

 

Ryan is energetic and has a wealth of knowledge on many different subjects.  He treats everyone like family, like he's known you forever, and if he doesn't know you, he makes an effort to get to know you.  He's also an excellent listener and problem solver.

 

Can you describe a defining moment or experience that you had with Ryan?

We were in a coaching group together—his insights and experiences were always so in-depth and real.  His contributions each week opened the door for everybody else to feel more comfortable to share their side of the project.  When we were going through our one-year visions, I was really awed by the distinct detail that he put into his vision and the work he wanted to accomplish.

 

What about Ryan makes him relatable to the everyday working man?

 

He is very relatable.  He is a painter and an auctioneer and a highly successful former college football coach.  He's very talented at a lot of different things, but a lot of the things he has learned has been through his own self-exploration and finding his own path.  All these things make him very relatable

 

If you were to pick the most significant way in which Ryan has impacted your life, what would it be?

 

He talks about the ebbs and flows of life and letting the uncontrollable happen, not only his words but his actions. I think this is something I may have always done but to be more aware when those stressors happen, to release them and surrender to them— that has been a big, big change for me.

 

 

If you were to predict Ryan's future as a coach, how do you think he'd do?

I have a ton of respect for him personally and professionally. I believe he is a very talented, unique individual and has a lot to share with everybody. He's going to do very well.

If you could describe Ryan in a sentence, what words would you use?

 

Sincere, honest, funny—he's funny.  Loyal, trustworthy, smart and intelligent.

I value his thoughts and opinions on many, many things.  

 

Can you describe a defining moment or experience that you had with Ryan? 

 

We went on a fishing trip one winter a couple of years ago.  We had a 6-hour drive and we just chatted about our lives and he was sharing with me a lot of his personal growth, things he learned and applied during his transformation period.  We were not just reminiscing about drinking beer or hunting; we were kind of pushing each other.  But he was sort of leading the way because he had done so much work on himself to get through depression and anxiety.  I had never really dealt with [that] but because he had, he had experimented and educated himself on so many other areas to help a person on a personal growth journey that it inspired me to open my eyes to be better, to improve. 

            

I'd been a firefighter and I was good at that. I played football and I was good at that. I was of this mindset with my business that I’m just going to outwork everybody and I don't care how miserable I am because that's what I do.  I know I can outwork everybody and I'll make this work come hell or high water. Then, we started having these conversations.    

            

Ryan was at the same place questioning that there's gotta be more to life, there's gotta be a better way.  Talking to him inspired me to find a better way.  Find the joy and the peace while still growing the business, but not making it so forceful. I was in a rut but those conversations ignited a fire: no dude that's not how you want to live your life.   He was leading the charge because he had done a lot of the research and work. And he’s good at asking the right questions so you can make up your own mind.  

 

What about Ryan do you think makes him relatable to the everyday working man?

 

He’s a blue-collar guy, out there every day running his own business, and he's dealt with and conquered this generational depression and anxiety thing that a lot of people are struggling with but won't openly admit it. 

 

If you were to pick the most significant way in which Ryan has impacted your life, what would it be? 

He opened the door to personal growth and invited me to start.

 

If you were to predict Ryan’s future as a coach, how do you think he’ll do?

I think he's going to be super successful; he's going to reach a lot of people.

If you could describe Ryan in a sentence, what words would you use?

 

Ryan is a deeply committed, highly energetic, very focused individual who is interested in his own personal growth and sharing his insights with others. 

 

Can you describe a defining moment or experience that you had with Ryan?

 

As a father Ryan is really focused on teaching both his son and his daughter what he's been learning at the level they can receive it. Recently he shared a story with me about when his son was having some trouble at school; it was a very emotional experience. He helped his son to understand that it is okay for him to feel and express whatever it was he was experiencing. [It was okay to cry. I believe as a result of this kind of parenting his son is going to be more confident,  more loving and open, more understanding and more compassionate.  He is just going to have a lot more access to who he really is.  This kind of parenting can break the generational cycle of violence, closed hearts, and ridged disciplinary responses.

 

What about Ryan makes him relatable to the everyday working man?

 

He’s not like other coaches where coaching is all they have ever done. Ryan is out there doing physical labor every single day, drumming up business, connecting with people.  And he has struggled with so many of the things that we have all struggled with.  That makes him really relatable.

 

If you were to pick the most significant way in which Ryan has impacted your life, what would it be?

There are times when I'm working with clients that they don't seem to be willing to do the work and therefore they don't experience transformation.  I get somewhat discouraged and I’m reluctant to take the actions it takes to build my coaching business. But then when I see someone like Ryan who is willing to do the work, who is having that transformation, whatever discomfort I experience about building my business is easy to overcome.

 

If you were to predict Ryan's future as a coach, how do you think he will do?

 

I think he's going to have an amazing career, especially because he is following his own inner guidance.  I know that his heart is focused on making a difference for young men who may be thinking that suicide is an option.  He’s going to save some lives; he probably already has. I believe he's going to do really, really well.
