Coach Brian, thank you so much for your guidance! With regards to my relationship issues I was having, your coaching has helped turn a negative situation into a positive one.

You analyzed my situation and made me see things from a completely different angle than before. You even pushed me to act outside of my normal comfort zone in order to make progress. I know it wasn't easy but through your patience and course of action I have made me it through my own obstacles. I really appreciate the time spent and will continue to use your coaching in moving myself forward each and every day!

Coaching has been an experience like no other. Brian has helped me to truly examine my life and be brutally honest with myself. He has helped me start living from my heart and my soul instead of from my head.

I came to Brian for clarity on school and career and not only did I get those answers within the first couple sessions, but we also delved into so much more - men and finances, time management and organization, family issues... Brian is teaching me so much in how to be the KEY to my life! I am learning to treat myself with respect, to live in the here and now, to breathe, to check in with myself on how I am feeling, to be in control of my life, to stay organized and structured, and to have fun. My experience with Brian has truly been a blessing. Anyone, and I mean, anyone, can benefit from Brian's services. He is incredibly passionate about what he does and he genuinely offers support in a completely nonjudgmental manner. He will teach you things that will change your life forever!

Life coaching has been one of the best investments I've made for myself. It's made me s-l-o-w down and embrace the being-ness of being human. Before I met Brian, I was rushing through life and decisions without letting them soak in.

I began losing a sense of who I was and what I really wanted. Through Brian's nurturing, thought-provoking, and challenging exercises, I've gained more clarity and truth about who I am, what I'm about, and what makes me happy. Most importantly, I wanted to confide 100% of my truth to someone without having to worry about them judging me or disagreeing with me. It has been such a relief to have Brian be that coach who listens, is aware of my truth and wants, and then helps me re-evaluate some of my choices so that I'm accountable for what I want and what I get. If anything, I've learned to embrace and love myself more...and I've even noticed the beautiful, natural surroundings by me instead of just zooming past them. Thanks Again Brian.....you are so wonderful.

In my fifty-five years, I have seen many approaches to self improvement and self enlightenment. Psychotherapy to PsychoCybernetics. Brian and his "Be the Key" philosophy have done more for me in a shorter time than any other approach.

Be the Key has provided me with laser sharp focus to my goals and the clarity I have achieved is amazing. Brian has surely helped me realize that by living in the moment, everyday can be a mulligan life (a do over).

I am an instructor at Apollo College for the Fitness Technician program. It is a 10 month diploma program where my students have an intensive class schedule of 4 hours a day 4 days a week.

We cover everything from Anatomy, Physiology, Kinesiology, Nutrition, Business Planning, Flexibility, Group fitness, Strength training, specialty populations, first aide and much more. The class that I personally love teaching is ‘Coaching and Motivation’. This course teaches the students how to be an effective motivational coach for their clients. They are taught about many aspects of coaching including; the stages of change and motivational interviewing. When I began this course I immediately thought about Brian. In 2007 I attended one of Brian's speaking engagements and was extremely impressed with his presentation on ‘Choices’. He is a professional motivational and inspirational speaker who truly speaks from the heart. What I love about Brian’s speaking is that I know that he truly lives what he teaches. He is humble and ‘real’ which allows people to connect with him. Brian took time out of his very busy schedule to spend 3 hours with my class. It was a real treat for all of us! He truly exemplifies what it means to be a ‘life coach’. He engaged all of the students and they were at the edge of their seats the entire time. Each of them felt like he was speaking directly to them. They later reported to me that they were moved, touched, motivated and inspired! Brian has an amazing speaking style. He is funny, heart felt, thoughtful, insightful and inspirational. I am looking forward to having him speak again in the near future. I know that the new class of students will be extremely pleased with the opportunity to see a professional inspirational speaker and life coach. As their instructor, I know that it will directly benefit my student’s abilities as professionals in the fitness arena.

I just want to Thank You for the "new outlook" I achieved with the Brian's Be The Key Life Coaching Sessions. My life was in turmoil. I had so many frustrations and didn't know where I was going or doing from day to day. I had lost my self esteem and confidence.

Meeting with you on a one on one basis, receiving the sincerity, enthusiasm, enlightment, goals, and total different prospective of seeing my life and future from a different point, has to be one of the best happenings in years !! Now, I look forward to each day. Both my personal life and business are on track. Thank you again. I would highly recommend Life Coaching for everyone!

My life was at a standstill and I kept reliving the past and dwelling on negative thoughts. I knew I needed help but I didn’t know where to turn. I had already been to many therapists and counselors, but I still was not happy. I had heard about life coaching, but I wasn’t sure if a life coach could help me.

I ran across an article Brian wrote in a holistic magazine called “Natural Awakenings” that I related to so much and I gave him a call. I was very nervous to meet him for the first time, but after the first few seconds his big warm smile made me feel comfortable and at ease. Brian has helped me focus on the beauty of life and living without regrets. He has allowed me to face challenges and to experience my fears head on so I can be more confident in who I am and what I stand for. I am now able to live outside of my comfort zone and stand up to challenges that I used to run from in the past. He has helped me realize that I come first and life's all about the choices I make. With his inspiration and guidance, my life is now moving forward for all the right reasons and on my terms.

I say this with a smile upon my face, “You would be amazed at what money could bring you if you only believed you were worth it.” When I first met Brian I thought to myself, “I couldn’t afford a coach”, but during his complementary session over the phone, he showed me the value of myself, my time and my life in one telephone session.

When he asked how much I was worth, I told him I was worth a million dollars, he replied with why not two. This got me thinking that I really settle for my own life. I can’t even begin to tell you how right Brian was when it came to my true happiness…there is no price tag. From day one, Brian has been absolutely remarkable in his communications with me by telephone, emails and instant messages. His constant motivation has really helped me over these past couple of months. I had struggled with my weight for the last 10 or so years and I had really lost sight of who I was. Brian has given me the awareness to see that this is not just about weight loss, or a diet, but it is about a commitment to positive thinking, creating a healthy and positive lifestyle, and true happiness. People are now starting to comment on my weight loss and I keep telling them that it’s just a reflection of how I feel inside my heart. Once I changed my way of thinking, got a new view of myself, everything else just seemed to follow naturally. It feels great to know that I am in control of my health and happiness. I have a long way to go, but I am now confident that with Brian’s continued support and motivation, I will reach not only my weight goal, but my ultimate happiness. There are no more excuses when it comes to really wanting to live my life. I’m beyond that now. So, who do I write out the check to again? LOL (laughing out loud)

Utilizing Brian as my Life Coach has opened not only my mind, but my heart as well. His unique insight, tremendous heart and intuitiveness connected me to my true gifts. He showed me that I do indeed hold the key to my successes.

In utilizing my strengths from within, I was able to change my darkness and be empowered to believe, achieve and succeed in myself! Before I knew it, I was able to release old destructive habits and embrace a new constructive and proactive view. His process was a breath of fresh air because he showed compassion of his heart, which allowed me to look inside at mine. By connecting me to my greatest assets, I was able to achieve my goals and succeed much further than I had originally thought I could. Brian, thank you so much for allowing me to take my time in stepping out of my own way, and removing the obstacles that were holding me back to my true greatness. Your motivation and inspiration of making positive choices has reflected me to always remember to stay positive even when the fears and self doubts were knocking at my doors. By being the “key” to my own life, is a constant reminder that I must be present in it. Again thanks and you will always be a part of my successes.

Brian has been a major catalyst in my pursuit and passion for making a difference in the world. After years of working in New York City as a Nurse in the hospital, I knew it was time to branch out on my own, but I was truly fearful of making the wrong choice.

Even though his questions were direct and tough to answer in the beginning, it encouraged me to dig deep inside my heart and to let go of my old thoughts and patterns that I was used to. It’s never easy to see the end result when you begin, however he never let me falter when it came to my pursuit of my happiness. His guidance has provided the faith and belief in myself to achieve anything I set my mind to as long as I honor my values, the light from within me and my happiness. I had clung onto the fears long enough and I knew that if I wanted to control my destiny of true happiness then I had to take ownership of my wants and start making the choices that would have major affects to not only me, but to others as well. With Brian as my coach, I was able to figure out my game plan and start accomplishing my goals step by step. I soon found myself leaving the hospital and started my own business helping others heal their own health. Knowing that I’m making a difference to others for all the right reasons is what brings me true joy and happiness each and everyday. I’m happy to say that not only is he my coach, but a very dear friend.

Brian's coaching has helped me access the root to seeds of doubt that have haunted me for years. His commitment to my growth has guided me to a place beyond the old limiting beliefs of my past. As a practitioner and teacher of yoga, I am clear that the answers are within me.

Yet, there are times when one cannot see past the shadows. As I became more empowered to discover my true self, I became aware of the fact that there are times when we need the support, encouragement, and listening of another to see that we are capable of stretching to the next level of our full potential, which is immeasurable. As I saw the old doubts that I had formed during adolescence rise to the surface during our coaching session, Brian's
ability to see past the "story," was not only instrumental in providing me with clarity, but allowed me to recognize my true power as I take the steps along my path. One of the areas that we worked on was my relationship with my mother and ever since our session, I have been able to accept and own my own power and my own life. I now experience myself and others with love, compassion and acceptance. I am grateful for Brian's constant encouragement and support as I reach new heights and levels of awareness.

The day that I had met Brian, was approximately two months from the day I asked the infinite source for help the first time in my life; if my prayer was to go unanswered I was going to distinguish my life.

I needed someone to reach out to me in a nontraditional, non-threatening fashion; the second he walked up to me and shook my hand I knew that I would never be the same and that is exactly what I needed. I wanted to change, but I was stuck, my addiction to fear was almost comforting. I was used to being miserable. After talking to him and allowing him to enter my personal space, I made a conscious choice to take responsibility for my life and happiness. Accountability was the key to melting my ego’s resistance to love, which is what I was so desperately trying to find, self-love. He gave me questions that I vehemently avoided, but ended up answering. His patience and ability to not get sucked into the negativity, blame, judgments, ego manifestations, illusions, anger, and constant fear I was projecting onto him, gave me confirmation that he was truly coming from a place of love and light. I was trying, but my ego was winning, my self denial of love, turned into self-hatred. He told me that he saw who I really was and this comment made all the difference. I took this anger and transmitted into proactively changing my life for the sake of giving, expressing, and allowing love into my life in all forms. This had to be done without forming attachments to outcomes, expectations, and judging others. This new perspective has freed me to show the world the best part of me, the light and infinite capacity I have to love. I will continue to embrace more spiritual and emotional growth, for now I realize that change is inevitable. This time I have no fear because I can always choose to come from a place of love and light. I have control of manifesting my own joy and how I perceive life. Thank you, Brian, for allowing me to see what was hidden for so long.

Working with Coach Brian has proven to be a huge benefit not only to myself, but my family as a whole. I would be lying if I said I wasn't skeptical prior to doing this work but it has been nothing short of extraordinary!

It's easy to put your trust in someone who is passionate, enthusiastic, and genuinely loves what they do and Coach Brian brings those qualities and more to every session we have together. He has opened my eyes to new ways of looking at things that matter most to me and my life, and I am extremely grateful and feel very lucky to have had this chance to work with him. I think it's obvious that I would highly recommend Coach Brian's talents to anybody looking to improve their life. You won't regret it.

My story was different than most kids my age. When I met Brian I was a seventeen year old girl who believed that there was nothing more to life then what was on the surface and to me the surface looked hopeless.

I was lost, insecure, and most importantly broken. I was so desperate to put the broken shards of my life back together but was afraid I'd have to do it alone. Brian, unlike many people, didn't allow me to put the pieces back together. In fact, I threw out those pieces and replaced them with a gift I received from Brian's teachings: Acceptance, Patience, Beauty, Possibilities, and above all things Love. Those five keys were the foundation for who I am today. Before Brian started coaching me, I had this void that for some reason couldn't get filled. I had no idea why it was there or how to address it. The void wasn't caused from the physical world, but from a lack of faith. Brian taught me how to believe in not only God, but the child within that I thought I lost years ago. Today, I see through the eyes of that authentic, beautiful, child. Today, I am brave and have the necessary tools I need to conquer any obstacle that comes my way. I was always reassured that I am stronger than any challenge that I will face and all I need to do is believe in the possibilities. Now, I am eighteen and getting out into the world and what inspired me to do this was one simple concept... Believing in the possibilities and the impossible.

I met with Coach Brian in Sedona, Az. We immediately hit it off, discovering the age-old question of " What's it all about ? ". Despite the generation in our ages, for me, it was quite easy to see that here was a young man who "got it". Our conversations and friendship have grown ever closer since meeting with him.

His “Be The KEY” coaching touches the basic core value in what we all possess, our heart, which, upon meeting him is way too evident to over-look. From what I’ve encountered, he's taken his primary strengths (empathy, love of his fellow man and woman, intelligence, and warm personality) and honed his abilities to convey these talents to us as clients in a simple and fun way. He has kept the growing process simple, never allowing fear or doubt to consume my ability in moving forward and following a plan of action to take me where I am going."

There's no doubt in my mind that wherever Coach Brian chooses to utilize his strengths on a client, they would be benefited individually and for the entire world. I agree with his philosophy that when one's path is recognized and a course of action is chosen, it takes the necessary work to make it happen. To use a sports analogy, great teams only become great through self-discipline, daily hard work, and, above all, practice, practice, and practice! Coach Brian instills both the courage and confidence to work toward and achieve one's goals. We all need a mentor in our lives, someone who cares about our struggle for victory. One who has our success uppermost in his mind. After knowing him as long and as closely over the years, I can say that what pleases him more than his own success is to hear those words, "put me in, Coach, I'm ready to play".

What I’m about to tell you is true and meeting this Angel changed my life forever. Coaching with Brian has guided me into myself, and helped me see the greatness of who I truly am. He showed me what our past, present and future is all about and coached me in how to live in the present moment.

It is truly the way my son and I live our lives now. I finally had had enough of falling in holes, but just in different roads. Now after some guidance, support, and inspiration, I believe in myself and now have the light to my path. I thank God, for bringing not only such an awesome coach, but a great friend and angel to help me shine my light within. I know that I can talk to him about my fears and doubts, but he never judges me and allows me to
take ownership of them. I have changed so much in my life, including careers, friends, and being a better Mom. Thank you so much for always coaching me to see what was right in front of me all along and for always honoring me each and every day in return. Through awareness, recognition and respect, I have transformed my life in so many ways I can't even count. My wish to everyone in the world is: May you be blessed and able to find the light with in you, just as I did!

I knew there was a reason for you coming into my life, but at the time I was blinded. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you so much for always coaching me even though my pride and ego constantly got in the way. In the beginning it was hard to be ready, willing and able when all you can see is unhappiness and self doubt.

As you know, making a decision to divorce someone is never easy and can be a very scary situation, but you inspired me to follow my heart and to take control of my happiness. After years of misery, I discovered my truth and peace inside and have found the love of my life for all the right reasons. My life will always be blessed knowing that I’m connected to my values and a true believer in never settling for life. Now, me and my kids will have a life that was meant to be lived all along without the all the negativity that almost destroyed it. I’m grateful for all our sessions and for keeping me laughing and smiling, and to always remember that life is beautiful if we choose to embrace it. Most of the time it’s tremendously hard to shed the person we were as a child, but you allowed me to explore all my values and what I stand for as a person. This new view of my happiness was there all along, yet I couldn’t see it right in front of me. I will never live my life without regret because I never know what tomorrow will bring. I now understand that my past has educated me in making healthier and more loving choices because they reflect the happiness of my heart for all the right reasons. Thanks again.

Coach Brian’s Achieving Greatness seminar was an invaluable lesson on positive thinking, self-worth/realization and of course overcoming ones fears! I believe that your message can and will help me to set the foundation that humanity needs to transcend to a higher level of consciousness, but to truly define the term of why we call ourselves "Human Beings". Thank you!"

"Just left Coach Brian's workshop on "Achieveing Greatness". Awesome job. Coach Brian…I feel like a "Rock Star" now.”

Linda

“I missed your previous speaking engagements and made a promise not to miss this one and I’m glad I didn’t. What powerful information you gave. I have to honestly say that I normally don’t like to attend seminars because I have to step into my own fears, but your thoughts that it’s ok to be human really touched home with me. With my busy schedule and attempt in thinking I can handle it all only made me realize that I really can’t and that I need to be ok to ask for help when it comes to balancing my life. Thanks for showing me the way to my own GREATNESS.”

David

"Coach Brian is a blessing toward understanding our own blessings! His "Achieving Greatness" seminar was absolutely powerful. Coach Brian is an ambassador of Spirit we all share. He is guided by his inner place of peace and say's things inspired from above. I'm VERY grateful for the ability to share in this amazing journey. The privilege to participate in something as wonderful as his seminar is really an experience everyone should have. I anticipate Coach Brian becoming a best-selling author sometime
soon."
