Here is what some of the experiences of our clients.

I have had the privilege of working with John as my coach for the past six months. I’m not sure my words can ever adequately describe the depth and value of the changes, growth and progress engaging in this program has afforded me.

The program begins with establishing a focus of development that is distinct to the individual. This is not a one size fits all approach. It is personally tailored through collaboration and trust.

The program has allowed me to develop new perspectives and awareness. It has increased my capacity to perform at every level….but the kicker is….this increase comes with less effort. When there is no struggle or resistance, life/tasks become much easier to accomplish. For the first time in my life, I know what freedom and inner peace feel like.

I entered the program with only myself in mind….but I can truly say it has changed not only myself….but everyone around me….for the better. My daughters’ relationship with myself and with each other is deeper and more supportive. I engage and dance with life rather than run from it. This confidence has allowed me to take my commodity trading to the next phase of development.

For anyone who knows they have the capacity to be more….this is for you! It will help you make that quantum leap forward. I will be forever grateful to John for guiding me through this process of growth and transformation. Blessings.

“I am extremely glad I worked with Theresa as my personal coach. She has helped me overcome what seemed to be overwhelming obstacles and develop an awareness that I never before realized. Theresa helped me develop skills and a higher way of thinking that will continue to guide me throughout my life. In the few months that we worked together, I experienced a great amount of growth, including finding a new job and moving forward in my relationship with my significant other, two factors which I have been struggling with for several years. I know I could not have done this without her knowledgeable guidance. I would highly recommend Theresa to anyone, especially if you are struggling with an issue, feel stuck in life, or simply want to be able to make better decisions or feel more satisfied and fulfilled. Thank you Theresa!!!”

I took the TAGR and the Dream Builder class. It is something I wish I had been introduced to years ago! It has helped me shift my thinking from having a constant negative self talk to being more positive and optimistic. While therapy and psychology can teach you WHY things are…..Theresa’s classes/coaching can help you take life to the next level….by showing you HOW to change things…….these programs will help bridge the gap from where you are…….to where you want to be. It is an eye opening experience and I would highly recommend it to adults and teens alike! It should be part of school curriculum….it is that life changing!

As a young adult, going about and planning your future may seem intimidating and fearful. Many do not know what to do about their lives and careers may seem like a dreadful occupation. With Dream Building, there are people here to assist you in your life however you choose to see it. Gentle encouragement and strong values are a testament to this program. I, myself, am a product of the success of this class. While before, I was unsteady, wary and constantly nervous, I was calmed, cooled and collected upon my initiation into the Dream Builders curriculum. This program will assure you the path to success and self-confidence in no time.

Having to answer to someone on a weekly basis about what matters to me, how I am going to get myself there, and what blockers I perceive was both a treat and a slippery slope. It is always easier to blame others for why we are not accomplishing something. I was profoundly impacted by both my progress and my setbacks and how they were intertwined in my ability to show up for myself. You give what you get….and with John as a life coach, the more you give, the more he gives. John has the gift of offering a different perspective on situations, which cause one to shift from the current state. I highly recommend John for those of you brave enough to believe in yourself and take action to accomplish your dreams!

Dear Theresa,

I want to thank you for both Think & Grow Rich and Dream Builders. I have attended, read, listened to, purchased etc. hundreds (yes hundreds) of motivational, inspirational, self-help, self-growth seminars/workshops/programs over the past 25 years. I always learn something from all of them. However, it is easy to let life interfere with follow through and continuing to apply the newly acquired knowledge. The continued week to week gatherings along with the “self-discovery/life journey exercises” (as you know I don’t consider them homework) help to keep the focus on self-exploration, discovery and growth. It also instills accountability both to myself and the group.

I didn’t have any huge revelations during Think & Grow Rich, I did gain some personal insight and regain some discipline in follow through. However, it was a great start to the excavation of my unconscious, but self-inflicted obstacles. Dream Builders has given me the opportunity to continue this exploration into my buried thoughts and my unconscious, conditioned thinking and barriers. I have had several mini-revelations, a big aha moment and a major light bulb moment. It is worth much more than the money I invested. The insight I have gained into my mind and soul, have been pivotal. These discoveries will allow me to achieve many of the goals I have either been afraid to attain, sabotaged or started and got stuck or derailed.

We all spend weeks or months planning vacations, choosing the perfect paint color, shopping for that knock out outfit, putting the right creams and lotions on our face and skin; but how many of us invest time in to planning our lives? Writing goals and actions steps is a wonderful start. However, if you are not getting where you want to it is either your game plan or your thoughts that are getting in the way. If it is the game plan, this is an easy fix, reevaluate and revise your plan. If it is your thoughts, such as doubt, fear, negative self-talk, letting others’ words derail you, than this requires work…on yourself. It means allowing yourself to delve into your deepest thoughts, inner secrets and possibly fears. It is not an over night process. I know I will continue my journey of self-discovery and growth, long after the class ends. I have had enough time to incorporate this as a lifelong activity now. I will likely go through Dream Builders on my own from the beginning once the class ends, just to see the shifts I have made in thought and behavior.

While some may view taking the time to learn about your thoughts, having breakthroughs and living the life you want, as self-indulgent or even selfish, it is the most self-full and giving thing you can do for yourself and everyone in your life. When one is living their dreams and at peace with themselves they can be more loving and caring to those around them.

Thanks for working with me so I could get past my financial obstacles to pursuing this program. It was an exceptionally worthwhile investment. Thanks for being accessible for questions and support between classes; and for sharing your personal stories and insight.

I was very successful by most people’s standards before I engaged John Wienecke as my “Life Coach.” I had what looked like a happy marriage, well adjusted kids, a lucrative career. I placed great value on self reliance, and was not only resistant to life coaching, but had been openly skeptical of the value it could hold for me.

After working with John for several months, I feel transformed in ways I could never have anticipated. A lifelong agnostic, I have been vocally critical of organized religion, and while not having the courage to fully reject the existence of God, I considered people of faith to be, at best, delusional, at worst, ignorant. I now not only have a path to understanding God, but also the ability to communicate with that part of me that is part of him.

I have rejected the fearful jokester, who used humor as a way to avoid being vulnerable, because that person no longer served me. I have reconnected with my wife in a deeper, more satisfying way. I have become a father to my children, instead of their comical friend. I am able to partner with my clients in a non-manipulative sincere way; where I feel a sense of pride and accomplishment; creating bonds that will last a lifetime; rather than feeling like an imposition on their lives.

Goals of my youth that had retreated to idle dreams have reemerged as not only possibilities, but as the expectation of my future experience. I have climbed Kilimanjaro with my fourteen year old son. This summer I will be hiking the Inca Trail in Peru from Cusco to the top of Machu Picchu with my entire family. I can’t wait to see these ancient ruins with my own eyes, but I am even more excited to see my eleven year old daughter’s expression when she sets foot on this hallowed ground! I am proud to have had the courage to follow my vision. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to share these experiences with my wife and children. I know the leadership I have shown them will inspire them to richer fuller lives of their own!

I am no longer embarrassed to share publically that I will stand atop Mt. Everest, or that I am going to be a national leader in the field of life insurance sales; In fact I expect to do both.

I am no longer afraid to be myself. I am excited to create a life that inspires me. When I am old and I look back at the life I lived I will reminisce about the times I shared with the people I loved and know I shall have lived rather than having feigned happiness in a risk free existence.

I encourage anyone who harbors a secret childhood dream to dare to have the courage to give it life. I am grateful to John Wienecke who has helped me to reengage the man I truly am. I recommend him to you with absolute conviction.
