    Coaching Testimonials

    Real clients with real results from working with our coaches

    Clients of Laura Kilburg

    Makenzie K.

    “Meeting with Laura has been life changing. Before, I measured self worth by calorie restriction and my body size, yet never really satisfied. Now, not only has my self worth improved, but I see food as a way to increase quality of life.

    I previously met with 3 different eating disorder therapists without much success. None were able to identify my location on the recovery train and meet me there. Immediately Laura asked thought provoking questions that helped me recognize therapy and recovery goals. Through talking with Laura I was able to find the root of my eating disorder, improve my relationship with food, and overcome many negative thoughts/feelings about myself and life.”


    “Thank you so much for your guidance, education, and support during my recovery….You have helped me re-introduce so many of my favorite foods, so I cannot thank you enough.”

    Clients of Bruce Wayne McLellan

    As an executive business coach, Bruce has a unique ability to take many disparate parts of a puzzle and find a clear path to creating a complete structure. He is incredibly astute at rapidly and accurately identifying core problem areas and works fastidiously together with the business owner to develop solutions that drive not just at healing the wound, but at resolving or eliminating the root cause of the wound. I would highly recommend Bruce as an integral part of a business owners overall strategic plan for growth. Kelly Saucke, Intrapreneur and Client Relationship Expert

    Earlier this year, I was feeling somewhat “directionless”. I have a wife, two kids in their late teens, all of us in good health, and a successful business. I had everything, but yet somehow, something was missing.  With the help of Bruce, and the tools and processes he presented to me, I was able to reestablish a path for the future and rekindle a passion for life. I’m very thankful for my time with Bruce this year. He’s a great trail guide if you’ve lost your way and  are open to self-exploration. Michael Joseph, Owner Mitchell-Joseph Insurance

    Bruce knows how to get you to the top the smartest, safest and best way possible. Dr Richard Norris, Founder at Leading Men Only

    I have been in business going into my tenth year since taking early retirement as a Senior Faculty member from RIT.  Bruce and I have been working together for less than two months. In this short-time I believe the single most influential and useful person in my entire business career is Bruce, my new coach.  Bruce had been watching me work as an entrepreneur and had approached me about offering his coaching expertise. Initially, I could not imagine working with a coach; I was too busy.  I have become so energized working more on my business and less in it.  With my coach I have been acquiring new skills and information I believe will help me become more successful professionally and personally.  I can visualize and realize having the time and independence to grow other interests.  With Bruce’s abilities, the coaching process and related training materials …. I can just say, “Wow!”  I am lucky and sincerely grateful for connecting with Bruce McLellan and look forward to many more adventures together. Kent Winchester, Rock Ventures LLC
