I can't say enough good things about both of these events.

Masters Retreat exceeded what I thought it would be like 100X plus! The small group with so many diversified interests, business levels and experiences (business & personal) made the discussions so that you could relate and feel comfortable in sharing. The topic – Perfect! Ready to take my leap…and not let all the baggage and road blocks get in my way! Thank You for such an amazing 2 days!

Gathering for Greatness – Great Presenters and their presentations materials were Right On for what I needed right now in my own business. Because the material shared was from business leaders to business leaders, I came back with so many ideas I want to implement, I've had to make a schedule for them all! Thank You for organizing such an amazing event. You Rock!

Hi Lisa,
I had to sit down and thank you for a very rewarding, fun, and exciting weekend at the Gathering for Greatness.

The entire weekend was so well organized. The presenters were phenomenal! The attendees were fantastic…there was a wonderful mix of demonstrators with one common goal.

I loved visiting with friends I had met in the past and making new friends. I also feel that I got to know you a little better too – which I loved. I left Phoenix today so inspired! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
