TESTIMONIALS ABOUT ASPIRATIONS WORKSHOPS
To Whom It May Concern;
I was asked to write a letter of recommendation for Kristen and am writing one happily for her. This is in regards to her workshops, which show people how to successfully navigate thru the resume and interview jungle. I took one of her workshops in July 2000 and have successfully used the skills I learned to become a successful project engineer in one of the top 50 engineering firms in the nation as well as being able to negotiate a salary commiserate with my knowledge and skills.
The first thing I noticed about Kristen´s seminar was the size. She kept the size small so that she could give each of us personal attention, based on each of our particular needs at the time. Thru the workshop, I was able to learn how to write a resume in a style that would be noticed for the particular field of employment I was entering. She showed me the use of keywords and how to place them so that Human Resource personnel, who have little knowledge of the work that I do, are able to see them and flag my resume for further interviews. Kristen also showed me the importance of cover letters and how to structure the content so the maximum information could be conveyed in the fewest words possible. She helped me strengthen my interviewing skills and pointed out weaknesses in my technique. She gave me key statements as answers to questions formatted specifically for me, and the materials to practice enhancing my interviewing skills by memorizing them so that, in every interview, I am prepared for any question with a great answer. Finally, Kristen gave me key statements to use during salary negotiations to improve my salary range with ease.
To date, I have never failed in obtaining a position that I have applied to. Using the techniques learned in Kristen´s workshops, I have always been able to get my foot in the door and win the position that I sought, even when I changed careers into the IT industry for a few years. In addition to successfully navigating the tough career path due to today´s economy, I also obtained a level of confidence and a means of improving other aspects of my life, both personal and business. Kristen´s proven method showed me that life is a process and that with a well, thought-out action plan, I am able to accomplish more and obtain a higher quality of life. I highly recommend Kristen´s workshops for anyone who wants a proven step-by-step method of improving parts of their lives.

Krista´s insights as a Life Coach are very helpful, especially the advice she gives during times of psychological struggle. Knowing now what she has taught me allows me to maintain patience and practice these skills in all aspects of my life. Thank you Krista! ~ Pete February 22, 2016
Things of hope are as not as far away as it seemed...If you can control your thinking, you can change you life for the better. I WAS having panic attacks and was hurting bad (physically)... and this changed my life. ~ David, November 7, 2016

Thank you for your awesome message to those going through drug and alcohol abuse. I myself am now on Savannah Georgia. I have seen my kids resent me, my wife be mad at me as well as her kids, my family, my friends. It has been too long and I have been sober since September 06 2016. I am in AA and that is Step 3 I believe. Place everything into God´s Hands. I am now at step 9 to make amends. Every day, I go through step 10 and 11. I also signed up for the group. Thank you and peace upon you. ~ Christopher, October 19, 2016

I normally am very pessimistic about people communication with the other side. However, last week while Krista and I were hanging out, I mentioned that 3 people I had contact with in the last 2 days had my sister´s name, Ashlyn, which was odd and I felt as though it was a sign. Krista then attempted a reading. She started drawing a picture of a person with long dark eyelashes, light eyes, and a shower cap looking down on an M crown with a gear, which she drew. She told me that she was continuously drawn to the piercing blue eyes. I asked her if she could tell whether the figure was a man or woman. She said I assume a woman because of the eyelashes. I said I think it´s my dad, and Krista asked about what´s the deal with the shower cap though. At that point I showed her my favorite picture of us together. In the picture Ernie, from Sesame Street is holding me in his arms and my dad is looking down at us as we are about to pose for a picture. She looked at the picture and started laughing because my father´s poofy 90´s hair was the shower cap, the E or gear was Ernie´s hair and I was his little princess, the crown (which incidentally was an M, for Megan in the drawing she sketched). It brought me to tears (the happy kind), and I felt lighter after the entire process was over. It was not the intent of our meeting and was very surreal. (Krista saw this photo she had never seen before and she knew how my father felt/feels about me, when we have never discussed him!) ~ Megan, November 23, 2016
Krista came to my home and did a reading on me. It was so spot on it actually scared me. She said there is a woman with brillo hair...And saw wood and fire. My grandmother passed who had brillo hair and she lost her mind when her oldest son went in the their barn. He fell asleep with his oil lamp... The hay caught fire. My grandfather pulled him out and while my grandmother was there standing over her son my grandfather pulled my uncle Al´s boots off and his legs came with it... He survived but lost both of his legs and my grandmother lost her mind. She was institutionalized. Amazing Krista picked up on that immediately!!! Thankfully, once the reading was done, she laid hands on me and gave me a blessing. It was so calming and loving. The very best and real deal! ~ Allie, March 6, 2016
REVIEWS RECEIVED ON THIS BOOK PROJECT: In November, Krista approached me to help her ghost edit her book because of my background. During our first appointment, we discussed the ideas and concepts of the book, and I was taken aback. For years, I had been discussing with my family, that I wanted to get my children involved in religion, but I felt that many of the religious organizations focused too much on differences and division of people. This book was exactly what I want my children to learn. It focuses on the unity of people and loving everyone, to fulfill the ultimate happiness, or as Krista calls it purest peace 24/7/365. In this new internet age, with a rapidly expanding population, the rules of interaction etiquette have not kept up with the times. This program will change how people approach life and others by defining new social norms and rules to both love and respect yourself and others.
