“It’s hard to imagine what my life and business would look like without the tools I learned at Thrive...”
"When I first started my business, I didn’t know how to get clients. I wanted to become a speaker but I felt so shy that I wouldn’t even raise my hand to share when I was in a small workshop.
In Thrive Academy Programs, I was able to breakthrough my fear. Shortly after, I accepted an invitation to speak in front of a large audience. Because I had their step-by-step system, my business went from $45,000 to $250,000 in that first year.
Just a few years later, I’m an internationally sought after speaker and well known thought leader in the world of holistic nutrition. I’m a published author and have been on TV. The best part is that I was able to set my business up to have the freedom to fully focus on being with my daughter for the first year of her life.”
Rose Cole, Holistic Nutrition Coach
“I'm being flown around the country to speak to women's groups...”
Before I took Thrive Academy Programs, I was struggling to pay my bills and wondering... where the heck are my clients? I so badly wanted to make a difference, but I didn't know how to market myself and felt completely intimidated and afraid.
Jesse and Sharla helped me learn how to sell packages and enroll people in long term programs, and now just a few years later, I have a multiple six figure business... coaching women entrepreneurs to become the leaders and teachers they are here to be.
As a result of my success, I'm being flown around the country to speak to women's groups and entrepreneurs, and getting the chance to network with and share the stage with some of the women I've been looking up to for years. Thank you, Jesse and Sharla, for what you provide, it's so needed.”
Sage Lavine, Conscious Women's Business Mentor
“My full time "hobby" turned into a thriving practice.”
“I've been a massage therapist in solo practice for 16 years. Before working with Jesse & Sharla, I struggled for years to get more than 8-10 clients a week and to earn more than $40,000 a year. Even though I was told over and over again how good I was, I started wondering if I was ever going to have a practice that was more than a full time "hobby."
I signed up for Client Attraction Mastery with Jesse & Sharla and even before the program was over, my client load jumped to over 25 a week. Because I learned the power of defining my niche and boldly (yet from a place of service, connection, and heart) asking my clients to re-book before they left the office, my clients were returning for more sessions.
I was soon booked 2-3 weeks in advance. I was able to raise my rates by the end of the year and hire 2 other therapists to work for me to take my client overflow. My full time "hobby" turned into a thriving practice.
It has now been two years since working with Jesse & Sharla and each year since Mastery, I have made over six figures in my business and regularly have over $10,000 months with my best month hitting over $15,000. My practice is 90% referral based so I do very little marketing. I have also structured my schedule so I see clients 4 days a week and have my evenings and weekends free. I love my work and my life!!
I have such deep gratitude for Jesse & Sharla and their amazing support team. Thank you, thank you!!”
Randy Lind, Certified Massage Therapist
“I’ve created an internationally recognized brand...”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I didn’t know how to market myself. I just knew I wanted to serve. After working with them, I grew my business to six figures and started speaking internationally. I was invited to interview the biggest names in the industry: Jack Canfield, Marcia Weider, Janet Atwood, and many more.
I’ve created an internationally recognized brand helping business owners remove their blocks to create profitable businesses. My biggest month so far has been $55,000.”
“I made over 1 million dollars in my business!”
“When I first met Jesse and Sharla, my health was seriously compromised because I was overworking myself at a stressful job that didn't fulfill me. I knew I wanted to start a business...but I didn't know where to begin. I signed up for all of the Thrive Academy Programs and within 1 year I made almost six figures.
Now just 6 years later, I lead live events, group programs and home study courses that have each generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales. I love being able to work from home in my yoga pants.
This year, I made over 1 million dollars in my business! The best part is, I'm totally fulfilled by the difference I’m making, and I get to go on the best vacations like surfing in Costa Rica.
Thrive Academy gave me the courage, support and know-how to get my business off the ground and running successfully. I highly recommend their excellent, incredibly valuable training programs!”
Vrinda Normand, The Irresistible Online Marketing Mentor
“I’ve gone from overwhelm to the ease of six figures.”
“After 10 years in my shamanic practice, I knew I was holding priceless wisdom, but I was struggling to grow my business and burning out.
I was guided to join Thrive Academy Lifetime because I wanted to grow my business in a heartfelt way with like-minded practitioners.
I'm amazed at how my business has grown! I now teach workshops all over the U.S. I’ve gone from overwhelm to the ease of six figures. I earned $15,000 in November in referrals alone! And this has allowed me to finally own a Retreat Center.”
Dani Burling, Shamanic Trainer
“(I)...increased my mailing list by 2,500 (including people in 35 countries) and brought in $20,000 in just two months.”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I wasn't sure how to really share my expertise in a way that people actually GOT IT and were compelled to work with me.
Through their programs, I've become clear about my expertise and who I can most help, I've created an information product that positions me as an expert, and I'm leading teleseminars that impact people all over the globe.
I just hosted my first virtual event where I interviewed 21 successful industry leaders. This was HUGE and put me and my business on the map. I'm now connected with influential leaders and this project increased my mailing list by 2,500 (including people in 35 countries) and brought in $20,000 in just two months.
Thank you, Jesse and Sharla!”
Alison Marks, MA, CFSC
“I'm making six figures and my bank account is growing without me getting out of my PJs!”
“I've been a fitness trainer since 1996 and before working with Jesse and Sharla I was working hard teaching 10+ classes a week and making $75,000/year. I didn't think a fitness trainer could make money without being a celebrity, showing up for class or to a client's home to teach. Was I wrong!
After working with Jesse and Sharla, I now have an information product (5 Keys to Creating a Fitness Program You Love) and have just launched a Free "Women Getting Fit" Wellness Teleseminar series. I'm seeing money come in without leaving my home and sometimes I just can't believe it!!
If it wasn't for Thrive I'd be teaching for the rest of my life, feeling stuck without any clue how to create the dream life my heart was longing for. Now, I'm making six figures and my bank account is growing without me getting out of my PJs!”
“Jesse and Sharla took me step by step through a process that has transformed my business and my life.”
“Before I worked with Jesse and Sharla, I was really frustrated with my business. It felt like a much beloved hobby. I put in a lot of effort, time and expense but could only get it going in a part time (very part time) fashion. I felt quite defeated and well, hopeless about being able to do the work that I loved and also make a bigger impact in the world.
My life is totally different after working with Jesse and Sharla. Now I know how to have conversations with potential clients and feel excited about them... instead of worried or fearful! I actually LOVE those conversations and so do my potential clients. I get so many "thank you's" afterwards, and of course, CLIENTS.
My schedule is full now with clients that I love, who pay me what my programs are worth, and I'm motivated and inspired to continue to grow with my business. I’m consistently earning at least five figures each month, with my best months averaging around $15,000.
It's such a radical transformation for me and has considerably added to my confidence and quality of life. I feel I can contribute so much more to my family and be there for them because I can make my own schedule, and this truly means the world to me.
I also feel so much hope and optimism that this is just the beginning for my vision. I am daring to dream again and know now how to ask for support in creating that dream!
Jesse and Sharla took me step by step through a process that has transformed my business and my life. I'm looking forward to what happens next! You two believed in me when I was in crisis. You saw a bigger vision and I believed in you to coach me through it.
I love you guys and my gratitude is immense for the work that you do. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.”
“Thrive Academy...has saved us thousands of hours and tens of thousands of dollars.”
“Last December, I got inspired to create a coaching and seminar business... My plan was to lock myself away for 6 months and design programs we would sell online and at seminars. We were on a fast track to spend tens of thousands of dollars on creating these products with the huge risk that maybe people wouldn't even buy the finished programs!
We invested in Thrive Academy and it has saved us thousands of hours and tens of thousands of dollars.
In fact, our expectations have been exceeded over and over again. The content, design, integrity and awesomeness of their programs are incomparable!
Now, less than one year later, we have an “8-Week Easy Cash-Flow” Intensive to sell online, sales letters completed, website being re-vamped, two new programs created and running with paid participants.
We started less than a year ago with zero clients in our new business and are at six figures already - with over half in recurring monthly fees! We are already making between $15,000 and $20,000 per month.
We simply could not have done this without Sharla and Jesse. They are the real deal and are with you every step of the way. They are more than trainers - we love them dearly as they've changed our lives immensely.”
“Last month I made $25,000!”
“I have studied with several other well-known marketing mentors. While I learned valuable info, none of them gave me the complete step-by-step system to build and grow my business. I began to feel disheartened and wondered if I could really make it in business.
After being in Thrive Academy, I got clear about my niche, the value I bring to my clients, and I created a coaching program. Last month I made $25,000! And 5 of the last 7 potential clients I talked with said YES (at $6,000 each)!
I'm so grateful to have the tools to grow my business. It has enabled me to serve more people and has freed me to spend time doing what I do best.”
Lynn Rousseau, MSOD, PCC
“I went from one client to 5 long term clients within a few weeks of Client Attraction Mastery and had my first $10,000 month!”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla I basically had no coaching clients to speak of. My practice was pretty much reduced to one corporate client while I was running around the Vancouver networking circle in the desperate attempt to launch my coaching business. My elevator pitch resulted in puzzled looks and polite conversation but no engagement, no referrals and for sure no bookings.
In the Client Attraction Mastery program I learned about the five energies, where my strengths are and where I can expand. I also received templates and tools that changed the core of my business, my introduction statements, and my positioning. Following these templates resulted in immediate success.
I changed my networking strategy to generate new leads and partnerships. I totally repositioned my services and my expertise and quickly signed up 5 long-term coaching clients. I also created a signature talk and stepped on the stage of a local networking Meet-Up for the first time.
I was so proud when I stepped on the Thrive stage as one of the top 10 success stories for the Client Attraction Game and I am well positioned to achieve my personal revenue goal of $36K during the 90-day game period. Being a member of a very strong and caring community has also given me access to many amazing relationships and supporting and healing conversations. I am facing my inability to acknowledge my own successes head-on with the support of members of this amazing community.
I am now well positioned to multiply these results during Leverage! Thanks Sharla and Jesse and the Thrive Team and Community for all the support and for showing me that I can do it!"
“My income went from $1,000 to $15,000 a month and it’s still growing!”
"My income went from $1,000 to $15,000 per month and my business has been continually growing for the past 4 years since I started working with Jesse and Sharla. I used to have a fear of making and having money, but now I can make money without feeling anxious or guilty.
From what I learned from Jesse and Sharla, over 60% of potential clients I talk with turn into high-end clients. Also my personal life has changed dramatically. Being Japanese has taught me so many things, like how we show up and speak up. In Japan there are so many people who have similar issues like me, and I have a passion to show them how we can be seen and heard and that we can be ourselves and happy. And as we do it, it contributes to the world.
I enjoy helping Japanese leaders to have a successful business and a fulfilled life."
Yoko Tajima, Success Consultant
“I now have FEWER CLIENTS but I make MORE MONEY than ever.”
“Before I started working with Jesse and Sharla, I wanted to learn how to get more clients but did not feel very inspired with my business.
Since I've started with them, I've led my first teleseminar. 300 people signed up for the call and on that call I filled my first group program making $12,000. It's a great feeling seeing the orders come in after the call...
Now I'm offering my first online event, the Super Women Summit, a networking Telesummit. I am inviting the most successful Super Women to share their secrets about their "Super Powers" and have women network with each other on the live calls.
I also created a business retreat where I am taking my clients to Tuscany. It's almost sold out and has turned into another six figure business venture.
And I signed my highest paying client this year with a $30,000 retainer.
It's been a year since I joined the Thrive programs and I now have FEWER CLIENTS but I make MORE MONEY than ever.
Thank you, Sharla, Jesse and the whole Thrive team for this amazing journey!!!”

“I lead workshops all around the world - from Austin to Amsterdam, Berlin to Budapest...”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I felt like I was always chasing after clients. I averaged 4 clients/month and was making just enough to avoid going back to a J-O-B. I knew I was great at helping men transform their love lives and become much more confident dating, but I was stressed out and never really knew how to sell in a way that felt right to me.
Through the Client Attraction Mastery program, I learned Heartselling and started looking forward to my sales calls because I knew there was a good chance my potential clients were going to sign up and pay me handsomely for my services. After taking Six Figure Speaker, I also started leading free introductory workshops. My confidence as a speaker has grown, and I lead workshops all around the world - from Austin to Amsterdam, Berlin to Budapest, and LA to London.
My business has more than tripled - within 3 months after starting their programs I was seeing 15 clients/month and earning six figures. My best month so far has been $43,000. I've grown so much I needed to hire a team to help me. My business is nearing the half million mark and I’m consistently making six figures per year. Thank you, Thrive!
"I had given up on my business … now I earn at least $10,000 a month!"
"Before doing Thrive Academy’s programs, I was on the verge of quitting my coaching business and going back to getting a job at a restaurant. In fact the very day I agreed to go to the Client Attraction Summit, I was going into my first day of work after trying to build my practice to no avail for a full year.
Later, when I attended the Client Attraction Summit, I remember vividly an exercise that asked us to determine what we needed to do to reach six figures (I.E… how many 1 on 1 clients, group programs, and products we'd need to sell). At that point reaching six figures or making 10K+ per month was a dream that I desired but deep down didn't believe was possible for me.
I felt a certain powerful energy when I was with Jesse and Sharla and the whole community and I knew it was the place for me. I invested in the programs, went to their events and studied everything Jesse and Sharla gave us.
I put it into practice relentlessly until it became second nature. I wasn't an overnight sensation but I did quit that job after only 1 day and never looked back.
Not only that but I'm also proud to announce that in only a little more than 1 year I'm averaging $10,000 per month and I recently had a $14,000 month!
Now my business is truly thriving at a level beyond what I thought possible: I have a full practice, various group programs, 4 home study products, many top JV partners, my own live events and I even got on TV (FOX and NBC) as an expert this past year.
Amazing things are happening and I owe much of it to Jesse, Sharla and the whole Thrive community for supporting me and pushing me to breakthrough to new heights in my business even when I didn't believe I could. But I believe now!! Thank you so much!!"

“I learnt how to leverage my time and launch a program, saving me years of trial and error!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was unsure of how to leverage my business. I was so busy working with clients one-on-one that I had to turn away prospective clients. I had also spoken to several groups, but could never count on anyone becoming a client.
They taught me a formula that helped me not only get clients from speaking, but it improved the content I delivered. And, they had a step-by-step process that showed me exactly how I should launch a program. If I had done it without their help, it would have taken me years and I would have come up with ideas and strategies that were half as good as theirs.
Since I did work with them, Jesse and Sharla helped me launch successful group programs within a few months of joining their program. And, about 20-30% of people who hear me speak now choose to work with me!”
“My most recent workshop was standing room only and my sales totaled over $90,000!”
"Before working with Jesse & Sharla, I was struggling as a single mom to pay grocery bills and make my car payment. I had previously been very successful as a Chiropractor and a bad car accident left me unable to practice, divorced and barely making ends meet in a crummy sales job. I was stressed out, unhappy and wondering if I would ever really make it…
It was a huge leap of faith for me to sign up for the first course but I dreamed of a different life and hoped that this would be the answer.
Since then I created my Character Code System, launched my membership site, filled my workshops, my private coaching practice and my VIP programs. I’ve attracted press, publicity, speaking/book agents and was recently featured on NBC Talk Radio. I co-hosted an International Social Media & Sales Telesummit with 18 phenomenal speakers.
Hollywood is looking at my Character Code System right now and I have 2 books in front of publishers. At a recent speaking event I made over $4,200 in just 12 minutes and $20,000 in sales in 4 weeks. I also had the joy of walking into the bank and paying off that car loan... Whoo-Hoo! Can I just say that yes, life is different now!
And the success keeps coming. My most recent workshop was standing room only and my sales totaled over $90,000!
Best of all, I get to spend more time with my daughter than ever before and yes…I get 8 hours of sleep a night!
I remember sitting in my first workshop with Jesse and Sharla and realizing that they aren’t just interested in teaching us information, they want us to really go out there and succeed. They give so much from valuable content to emotional support to templates to technical details… [Thrive] is the ticket to success!
Thank you and much love to Jesse, Sharla and the entire [Thrive] Team!!"
“Within 8 weeks of Client Attraction Summit I doubled my company’s revenues!”
Before working with Jesse and Sharla I’d lost my direction with my business and, in many ways, my life. I’d been an executive sales trainer for years and, while I excelled at training people how to sell their products or services, I would stumble when trying to sell myself. I had lost my own sales confidence because I’d begun to devalue what I do. People kept telling me to play bigger with my business, but I couldn’t figure out what that would look like for me. I didn’t know how to grow beyond my one-on-one client base in a sustainable way. I had so many questions and not a lot of answers. That’s when I decided to take a chance and attend the Client Attraction Summit to see what I could learn.
Through the Client Attraction Mastery program Sharla and Jesse showed me how to confidently communicate the value of what I do with my potential clients so they’re immediately inspired and trust that we can achieve their company’s sales goals together.
The Leverage program also provided me a framework for playing bigger without burning out. I’m currently implementing Leverage principles in my business to exponentially increase the number of clients I’m able to serve, while keeping my freedom intact!
Within 8 weeks of attending the Client Attraction Summit I doubled my company’s revenues, but that was only the beginning. I experienced a $35,000 month and earned more in the first 3 months of 2015 that I did in the whole year in 2014!
However, the best part of becoming involved with Thrive has nothing to do with money for me. Sharla and Jesse helped me overcome my limiting beliefs so I no longer question the value of my services. There are entrepreneurs and executives waiting for me to help them overcome their dysfunctional relationships with sales so that they and their teams can grow their business to unprecedented levels of success. I can’t wait to help them get there!
“I went from working 70 hours a week to working 10-20 hours… and earn three times as much as I used to!”
“Before meeting Jesse and Sharla and this amazing community I was working as a homeopath 6 days a week all day and night working my way up throughout 11 years of practice to about $5,000 a month. I never had time to relax, I was always stressed and worried and every so often I would crash from exhaustion and depletion.
My husband had gone to a Thrive event before me and I saw how he tripled his income after just a 3-day Summit so I began to read their book and follow their emails and teleconferences and I signed up for Client Attraction Mastery.
From July 1st that I signed up even before my first live event, I doubled my income and hit $10,000. The second month after attending the event I made $14,000.
After my first live event I got very clear on how crucial is was to have my niche. Jesse made it very clear that the foundation to success is having a clear niche, as it shows our commitment to ourselves and whom we serve, I am glad I took that seriously because somehow magically within a week I was known as the expert in my field.
Now instead of working an average of 70 hours a week, I work 10 to 20 hours a week. The rest of the time I get to be with my husband doing our hobbies of swimming, camping, parenting. Every few hours I check my forum to see if my clients need me and I attend to them virtually or over the phone for a few minutes, they are happy and I am too from any part of the world I am in.”
“3 months after Client Attraction Mastery I had my first 6 figure month!!”
“Prior to joining Thrive Academy and working with Jesse and Sharla, I was struggling to choose a single focus for my new coaching practice. I felt tossed around by every new idea that popped into my head and, worse, was charging too little in my old business to support the transition.
When I stumbled upon one of Sharla’s videos online, her insight into the ways that conscious entrepreneurs typically undervalue themselves immediately inspired me to increase my rates. This was a big step for me -- increasing the financial stability of my old business finally gave me the resources and confidence to move forward with my new one.
At that point, I invested in the Client Attraction Mastery program, which helped me let go of even more “unworthiness” blocks and taught me how to position myself much more effectively in networking conversations. Three months later, I had my first six-figure month!”

“In six months, I went from just covering my basic living expenses to earning $14,000 a month!”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I struggled to make a living, I was just covering my basic living expenses, food, rent, gas, and never had any money left over. I had no financial cushion. I kept my situation a secret because I was embarrassed and I didn’t want anyone to know I was just scraping by. I felt resentful because I knew I was a great coach and I had tons of value to offer the world.
During the Client Attraction Summit, I began to feel really hopeful, more confident and inspired. One of the exercises Jesse did with us was to help us feel confident about raising our rates. That really worked for me and I put it into action right away. I devoured the templates on heartselling and I was determined to master the techniques and tools I was learning. I realized there was a proven system that would get me where I wanted to go. I listened to the Home Study Program over and over so I could model how Sharla and Jesse did the heartselling with grace, ease and love.
As a result of Client Attraction Mastery my monthly numbers began to increase. I was determined to get into the $10,000 a month club. Six months after joining Thrive I surpassed the $10,000 month and went straight to a $14,000 month! I knew I had broken through some old limiting beliefs. This experience has changed my entire life. I’m relating to clients and potential clients in a new, more confident way. My inspiring energy is contagious. I feel like I’m a magnet attracting clients who are a perfect fit. Now I love having heartselling conversations and making offers from the stage. Not only has Thrive increased my bottom line but it has raised my coaching skills to a whole new level. I’m now planning two vacations, accumulating savings and feel good about shopping for new clothes."
Thank you Sharla and Jesse for believing in me and helping me live my life’s purpose.

“The Thrive Programs are the best investment I have made in my business!”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was doing okay. I had a steady flow of clients but could not seem to get more than a few at a time. It seemed like I was stuck at never having more than 5 at a time. I was definitely not where I wanted to be financially. I felt very frustrated; I knew I needed to be having more sales conversations but wasn’t sure how to get them or how to turn more of those conversations into sales.
In the Client Attraction Mastery program I learned two things that have turned my business around dramatically in the past year. The first was Heartselling. I have been in sales for close to 15 years but learning how to sell my own services and not a product was a real challenge for me. Heartselling took away all my fear and concerns and made it easy to connect with people in a meaningful way. Also, the insights and suggestions on how to get more people signed up for free consultations were brilliant. I went from having just a few each month to averaging 20 a month.
As a result of learning Heartselling and finding dozens of people to practice free consultations with, my income has steadily increased all year. I am on track to double what I made last year and most importantly, I hit one of my big milestones, which was to have my first $10K month. One of the most powerful lessons I have learned this year is believing that what I do matters. This belief has allowed me to raise my prices and to believe in the value that I offer. This belief has not only increased my income but it has also improved results from my clients.
Client Attraction Mastery and the other Thrive Programs are the best investment I have made in my business. I can’t wait to see what happens next!"
Dr. Minette Riordan
“After Speaker my first workshop closed $4,000 in sales – from NEVER having made an offer before!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I participated in a few other training courses that, quite frankly, I wasn’t ready for based on where my business was at the time. I’d been a student of speaking long before realizing I was a “speaker geek,” and I knew something was missing in the way I presented.
I didn’t have the financial resources to invest in producing large scale events and knew that smaller workshops would be a better fit for me.
From the first moment of seeing Jesse in action on stage and watching how effortlessly the content and the offers flowed, I knew I wanted to study with him and Sharla. In the Speaker program I learned so much more about myself and how the connection to the audience really does matter more than anything else, and that, combined with learning and embracing the Heartselling conversations and consultations gave me the boost of confidence I needed to be a much more effective speaker and leader.
In my first workshop I closed $4,000 – this after NEVER having made an offer of a paid program or services before. That gave me the boost to reach out to more of my prospective clients, and that month I closed $11,000 in new sales. Then during the Client Attraction Mastery program, I used what I learned to close $13,000 in sales. This was a HUGE confidence builder for me, and I know the next $10,000 plus month is not too far off!”
“I went from $500 a month to $12,000 a month!!!”
“I received my coaching certification in 2012 but soon after sadly realized that my school had not prepared me for the real business of coaching. I was only making about $500 a month as a general coach helping people with “whatever“... Yes the school had suggested getting a coaching specialty but that was about it, maybe we spent few hours on the entire subject.
In 2013, I discovered Thrive by attending a Summit - it was great. I learned the basics on how to develop a Niche and a powerful “What do you do statement“, and that Thrive's focus is helping people like myself be successful in the business of coaching. I immediately thought “I can do this“ so I enrolled in the very next Client Attraction Mastery Program. That same year I started “CoachYourGenius.com“ helping people get into coaching based on their experience, education and the desire to help others with their powerful background. I now also help existing coaches and entrepreneurs breakthrough the barriers that hold them back from taking their business to higher levels.
Today my life is full of possibilities with an income that supports me and my future. I can make $12,000 in just one month by inviting people to a free consultation and later converting them to a full year program. And I learned how to do that just by following the templates and strategies I learned from Jesse and Sharla at Thrive. Thanks to the both of you!”
Ernesto Mercado, Inner-Game to Wealth Coach
“In 2 months, I made over $29,000!!!”
“Before finding Thrive Academy, I struggled to pull in $600 a week as an Intuitive Coach and International Teacher– and that was after being in business four years! Within hours of being home from Jesse and Sharla’s Client Attraction Summit I earned $9,100 in just one day. A month later after the Client Attraction Mastery Event I pulled in another $13,500 in only one week and it didn’t stop there. In two months, I made over $29,000.
I was in complete disbelief. I had no idea this kind of money was possible in the holistic field. Even with my 30-year background in personal consciousness and clients telling me that I had changed their life I was ready to throw in the towel on my bigger dreams of serving more people. It turns out all I needed was Jesse and Sharla’s Heartselling™ techniques. What used to be awkward and hesitant for me around asking clients to commit became this aligned way of serving and giving them the choice. My fear of being pushy was gone and where I couldn’t sell a package to save my life before Thrive I now sell multiple packages a week!
My one-on-one time is completely booked now. What also helped was learning to not be so watered down and serving everyone’s problems to becoming an expert at specifically helping smart, talented women understand if they’re with Mr. Right. Now I’m leveraging my time so I can serve more people and still be the parent I want to be for my 8 and 10 year old children. Even my husband, who witnessed all my struggles making money is now thrilled that I can pay for a personal trainer, the nanny and help him retire early. I am in full gratitude for Jesse and Sharla!”
“I increased my rates by 150%!!!”
“When I came to Thrive Academy, I was deeply insecure and feeling unworthy of success in the endeavor of my legacy and mission. As a former bookkeeper and co-owner of a rare coin business for over 20 years, it was only nine years ago that I ventured into the world of poverty post divorce and a quest to find my inner voice.
I am thankful to Sharla Jacobs and Jesse Koren, founders of Thrive Academy for I’ve spent an entire year dining on their wisdom and am a Lifetime Member. My experience after attending the Client Attraction Summit was that I met my first client who signed up for my four month program. With that client, I earned a 100% increase in my rates. After the Client Attraction Mastery Program, I asked for and received a 150% increase in my rates and was stunned that I could make this effective within a 30 minute, free phone consultation.
As I look back on my experience in the Money Breakthrough, I chose to make deep space in my heart to deeply unravel the blocks I was carrying. While I’ve yet to find and create leverage, I have faith that I will in the near future. As a Speaker, I found the Six Figure Speaker program highly valuable for integrating the message of spirit and finance and truly look forward to being on stage and earning six figures with my message of Prayergasm.”
“I now have an INTERNATIONAL business!”
"Before Thrive Academy, my income fluctuated between $5,000 - $8,000/month and my business was local or in the U.S. only. I felt frustrated because I wanted to reach more people but didn't know how to take my business to the next level.
Within ONE month of working with Jesse and Sharla I reached six figures! And I've been earning six figures ever since. Their Get Leverage program helped me double the number of students enrolled in my programs and increased sales for my home study course.
And I now have an INTERNATIONAL business! Using the Heartselling I learned in Client Attraction Mastery, I enrolled many new VIP clients, including in Europe and Asia, and women fly in from all over the world for my trainings.
My latest celebration is the success of my first telesummit I co-hosted. Over 5,000 people registered! We interviewed best-selling speakers like Sonia Choquette, Alan Cohen, Margaret Lynch and Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks and brought in over $30,000! I tripled my list in 2 months and I continue to build JV relationships with TOP transformational experts. I even host a monthly interview series, "Love, Spirit & Success" with luminaries in personal growth, spirituality and business.
I can't wait to see where my business goes, and grows, next! Thank you, Jesse and Sharla!"
Rev. Sage Taylor Kingsley-Goddard, CHT, RM, The Prosperous Goddess™
“I quit my job and went full time in my own business and then soared to six figures that year.”
"Before coming to Thrive Academy, I was struggling to get my business started. I had chronic fatigue, insomnia, and a full time job, which meant that I only had nights and weekends to try to get my business off the ground.
Jesse and Sharla taught me Heartselling, and how to start a workshop business. I integrated this (with my own tools and style) and built a full practice in a month and a half. I quit my job and went full time in my own business and then soared to six figures that year. In that same year I spent 4 months traveling internationally!
I now have a thriving business where I've helped thousands of people, get to travel as much as I want, and make money doing what I love while helping others do the same!"
“...my business went from $40,000 to $100,000 in one year.”
"When I came to the Client Attraction Summit in 2008, I had $0 in my checking account, $400 in savings, and no credit. I was really scared and losing hope that my business would ever really take off.
Before the first day of the workshop was even over, I realized why I was broke. It wasn't my "craft" that was the problem. The problem was that I didn't know how to communicate what I did to people in a way that they could understand.
So I signed up for the Client Attraction Mastery program and learned Heartselling... and within a few months I got some new clients and my business went from $40,000 to $100,000 in one year.
Now I'm running a six figure business with private clients, a rockin' group program with people I LOVE, and I'm ready to launch a membership organization that I feel more excited and passionate about than anything I've ever done. Thank you, Thrive!"
“Thrive Academy...helped me triple my practice in under 3 weeks...”
“Before I met Jesse and Sharla, I had quit my six figure corporate job and trained as a coach, but nobody had told me how hard it was going to be to get clients. I didn't know who I was trying to reach, and I was so desperate, and undefined in my focus that I was chatting up people in the grocery store line as my potential clients. People were avoiding me, and I was broke.
During the Thrive Academy courses, not only did I learn practical tools, tips, and solid practices that helped me triple my practice in under 3 weeks, I did deep inner work that cleared out years of blocks around money. And best yet, I learned how to speak to a room and convert my words into dollars.
Making $18,000 in a weekend is thousands of times better than making a little over that in a year. It's been just over a year, and I expect to earn six figures teaching small business owners how to create hot brands that attract more of the right kinds of clients. Thank you, Thrive Academy, for giving me my life back!
Sage Lee, Small Business Big Brand
“I am now the person on stage who can count on a rush to the back of the room.”
"Today was a life-changing moment. I got my dream here... The selling part of my talk was the funnest part! I got this rush to the back of the room. There were about 80-100 people in the room and 80-90% of the room ran to the back. I am now the person on stage who can count on a rush to the back of the room. Can you imagine how powerful that is? It's a whole new level of confidence. And I know I can count on that. Since then, my biggest earning month has been over $74,000."
Morgana Rae, Charmed Life Coach and Money Goddess
“I generated over $10,000 of business in one month using only two of nine ways to attract ideal clients!!!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was too timid to start my own business. I teach men how to attract their ideal partner and communicate their value effectively. I would dabble with coaching or give away my time for free, because I didn’t realize my own value. I remember I once helped a guy over a huge block in just thirty minutes, yet it never crossed my mind to charge him.
I felt incredibly frustrated. Trapped in my old job and difficult economic conditions. I had no idea how I could escape and was resigned to my fate of an unhappy work life.
During the programs, I realized that I wasn’t alone. I was facing the same problems that many coaches face. By learning how Jesse and Sharla had grown their own successful business, I knew that I could do it too, and all their templates meant that I never strayed too far from what works.
After getting into action, I was able to generate over $10,000 worth of business in one month, by just using two of their nine ways to attract ideal clients. I was dumbstruck by the momentum I was building up and I owe it all to Thrive Academy.”
“I made $6,000 from one speaking gig!”
Before working with Jesse and Sharla I was exhausted emotionally and struggling every month financially. I was so burned out that I actually shut down my business for three months. I had no idea why what I was doing wasn’t working and why it was so hard for me to make money.
Using the free consult templates from the Client Attraction Mastery program along with the strategies from Six Figure Speaker completely transformed my business. Before Client Attraction Mastery, I had no idea how to convert potential clients into paying into clients. After learning Heartselling and the tools for mastering the free consult conversation, I was able to turn 60% of those who were interested in my services into paying clients.
I always wanted to go out and speak but didn’t know where to start. Because of my overwhelm I couldn't get myself to take the steps to make it happen. The templates and strategies in Six Figure Speaker were so straightforward and made being successful as a speaker very easy.
Within the first month of completing Six Figure Speaker, I already had 4 speaking gigs booked. And I made $6,000 from just one event using the heart selling system. The knot I always had in my stomach because I didn’t feel like I had any real control of my income is gone. Because of the tools I learned in Client Attraction Mastery I know I can always get more clients when I need to. The most amazing part is that after 10 months in the program I just had my first $10,000 month. Investing in Thrive was the best thing I ever did for my business.
“I’ve already earned $2,231 by speaking for less than 2 minutes on stage!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was struggling to find myself as an author, creator and presenter who was not just creative but successful, too. I knew I had a calling but I didn't know what it was or what it looked like. I had a few consistent clients who were covering some of my bills but I had no reliable way to build my business. How I got clients was somewhere between "magic" and "accident.” I felt like I had no control.
Through their Client Attraction Mastery and Get Leverage programs, I became clearer about my value and how to create and deliver something of great value. I made $18,861 in one month! Now I have the skills and proof that I can be creative and successful!
Through their Six Figure Speaker program I learned how to successfully make an offer from stage. I’ve already earned $2,231 by speaking for less than 2 minutes on stage! This launched my first successful group program, which I turned into a hot home study course I can sell again and again. My business vision is evolving and most importantly, I feel solid and grateful every day because I get to do what I love and BE EPIC!
“I generated over $25,000 in new client sales in the first month of the program!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla I was so overwhelmed with my business that I felt like I was drowning. I was working with so many different modalities, people didn’t know who to refer to me and I was barely making enough to pay my bills.
At the initial weekend workshop I realized that while I had invested tens of thousands of dollars in my personal growth I had never invested anything in business training! I had a burning desire to make a big difference in the world and realized I needed the nuts and bolts and the right community in order to be successful.
In the Client Attraction Mastery program I learned Heartselling and how to not give away my services for free. I raised my prices and connected to the value of what I have to offer. I generated over $25,000 in new client sales in the first month of the program!
I am so grateful to the Thrive programs and community. I feel as if I am part of a family. Jesse and Sharla are incredible role models of what is possible when coming from the heart.”
Amy Cheryl, A.P.P
“In the 8 months following Speaker, I earned an additional $200,000 in my platform speaking/workshop business!”
“When I signed up for the Six Figure Speaker program, I had a hard time asking for money, for doing what I loved, without feeling like a hooker. I was already a successful keynote speaker and media darling, and had many opportunities to speak on stages across the country. But making an offer from the stage always made my palms sweat, my knees weak and my voice quiver. My body language gave away how uncomfortable I was asking to get paid and my sales were dismal. I happily gave it all away during my talk and even more afterwards by coaching attendees one-on-one, still never asking for the sale.
And while I already had a successful six figure business, the private clients I had were taking all my time. I wasn’t scale-able.
Six Figure Speaker - the program, the templates, the community, the connections - changed all that for me.
In the month in between the 2 Live Event weekends I booked 10 speaking engagements. The first time I delivered my talk, using the templates, I earned $7,500. (And this was just 19 days after the first weekend!) Overall I earned almost $40,000 in those 10 talks alone, and it's still one of my most popular and profitable talks.
Then four months after Speaker I delivered my newly re-branded 2-Day workshop, “Red Carpet Results” to a packed audience and filled my coaching program by making an offer from the stage. (I now feel empowered and able to ASK for the business!) In the 8 months following Speaker, I earned an additional $200,000 in my platform speaking/workshop business!
And the benefits don’t stop there. The connections and support I experience through the Thrive community have blown me away. The people who support my workshops in the back of the room come from this community (and ensure a successful event given that they are using all that we learned at Six Figure Speaker!); and many of my most powerful JV partners come from this community.
Thank you, Jesse and Sharla, and the Thrive Community, for launching the new ME!”
“...my biggest monthly income so far has been $56,000... working only 15 days in the month!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. I was only working one-on-one with clients, long hours and just making a couple thousand dollars per month. I wanted to reach more people, leverage my time and make more money.
During the Six Figure Speaker program, I saw how I could impact more people and make a bigger difference in the world. It gave me the confidence I needed and I TRIPLED then DOUBLED my business again. I jumped into six figures with ease.
I earned $6,000 in 15 minute presentations more than once! And my biggest monthly income so far has been $56,000... working only 15 days in the month!
All this done with integrity, heart and authenticity! Many thanks, Jesse and Sharla, for your amazing programs, and your big hearts.”
Nathalie Ekobo, MBA, International Speaker, Intuitive, Business Consultant
“If you're going to add live events to your business AND you want to sell from the stage, you MUST have speaker training - it's non-negotiable! I'm super-picky about mentors, but when it came time to learn these skills, there was only ONE set of mentors I would consider: Jesse Koren and Sharla Jacobs.
Shortly after I completed their Six Figure Speaker program, I hosted my first event for 12 of my clients. Even though I made some mistakes, my offer resulted in $36,000 of additional business! The skills I learned from Jesse and Sharla allowed me to recover quickly from my mistakes and stay focused without getting triggered. Best of all, my participants LOVED the event and created amazing breakthroughs for themselves.
Jesse and Sharla hold NOTHING back. I've invested in a lot of sales trainings, and I can honestly say that no other trainer I've experienced has matched their generosity. You will learn gems that you can use in ANY sales situation, including one-on-one Heartselling and teleseminars.
Now, I'm thrilled to report that I'm hosting my first major live event in June of 2012. It's 3 days - a big commitment and huge leap of faith! But I feel 1000% confident, thanks to Jesse and Sharla. I believe that ANYONE who leads workshops or does group selling of any kind can benefit from this outstanding training. Thank you, Jesse and Sharla - you rock and I love you!”
Elizabeth Purvis, The Marketing Goddess
“I knew I just needed the right blueprint.”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla I was working 60+ hours a week and making about $40,000 a year. Ugh! Every day was a painful struggle and I questioned everything. I knew I just needed the right blueprint.
And I found that blueprint in their programs! I used their systems and strategies to launch my last business and made $160,000 in my first year. I decided to return again this year as I just launched my brand new platform in January. I made well over $18,000 my first month just using Heartselling alone.
Thank you, Jesse and Sharla, for being who you are in the world. I use the templates, the structure, and the strategies in everything I do to be a success. 7-Figures here I come!”
Michelle Van Otten
“I was able to go from creating a brand new business to creating a six figure business in less than one year.”
“The Get Leverage program was the single most important program I have ever taken to both get my information out to more women as well as create a thriving business. The principles are now in my bones.
It’s because of the Leverage principles that I was able to go from creating a brand new business to creating a six figure business in less than one year. It also helped me to re-frame my business so that I am no longer burned out from 1-on-1 coaching.
My info-products and teleseminars have allowed me to coach people from all over the world over the phone, as well as has made me over six figures in a fraction of the time it would have taken me to enroll clients 1-on-1.”
"I have made over $25,000 in just a few months after beginning with Thrive...”
“Relief barely begins to describe my experience! I went from confusion, overwhelm and resignation about my business to clarity, purpose, passion and success! I have become one of those success stories that until now, I almost couldn't believe. I have made over $25,000 in just a few months after beginning with Thrive and have added a total of 11 new clients into my 6-month program!
My gratitude is immeasurable. I have truly transformed my business--without you this would NOT be happening. You are the teachers I have been waiting for and your training is the roadmap I have been seeking. Today, I referred another person to you guys. Thank you for your extraordinary contribution to me and to my clients. My heartfelt and glowing recommendations will continue!”
Kristen Moeller, Bestselling Author and Author Coach
“In the Get Leverage program I made my son my #1 priority.”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I had totally given up on my happiness. I was devastated both financially and emotionally, after leaving an abusive relationship (and I was pregnant). There were moments I loved being a Mother, and many others when I absolutely hated it. I didn't accept any type of support and was stressed out, always asking, “When do I have time to work and make money for us?” I secretly dreamed that my son and I would be rescued by a wealthy Prince Charming and all the worry would go away.
In the Get Leverage program I made my son my #1 priority. That inspired and motivated me to develop a group program (my six step signature Money Detox program) to create financial freedom for myself AND my clients. I offered my program at Leverage and earned $1,873 in 75 seconds! And then I launched this program and went on to make over $34,000 in six weeks!
I am so excited to be helping heart-based business owners handle their money stuff so they can make the huge difference they are here to make. I have my power back and have become the person I was waiting to be rescued by…It all really can be easy.”

“Knowing I have created a career doing what I am meant to do and earn a living doing it has changed my life forever!”
“I had just quit my successful corporate job to launch my dream business when I first discovered Jesse and Sharla. I had 1 client and was earning $750 per month. I was scared and worried that I’d have to go back to working a J.O.B. that I hated, giving up on my lifelong dream of teaching, motivating, and inspiring people to be their very best.
Through Jesse and Sharla’s programs I got the tools and support I needed to create a six figure business. My best sales month so far has been $10,450! Knowing I have created a career doing what I am meant to do and earn a living doing it has changed my life forever!”
Susan Berke, Business Coach
“The first week after the Client Attraction Mastery Launch Event I earned $15,000.”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was frustrated, struggling, and burning out. I wasn't reaching the clients, nor doing the depth of work, I had always felt called to do. While I was earning $8K a month with 10 clients, I knew there was more.
In my first Thrive program, I had a powerful coaching experience with Jesse that helped me discover what was holding me back in making a stronger connection with my (potential) clients.
The breakthrough coupled with the templates and Heartselling strategies helped me grow my business easily and effortlessly. The first week after the Client Attraction Mastery Launch Event I earned $15,000. Within a month I earned over $39,000!
I am now planning a month of workshops in Australia and the classes are filling easily. My private practice is full and I have 4 books in the works to be published. I increased my prices and more people came to work with me. I am loving what I do even more. I'm just getting started and have everything to look forward to in creating the wildest success of my dreams.”

“I was inspired to get into action IMMEDIATELY!”
“Before discovering Jesse and Sharla, I felt trapped. I was running a successful print and promotion business AND had established myself as a speaker and trainer as my avocation, yet I wasn't doing what I really wanted to be doing... earning a great living working as a speaker and a trainer. Yet I didn't know how to make this shift. I had been trained to deliver other people's stuff. I didn't know how to develop content or find my own clients.
It was in Jesse and Sharla's programs that I had my turning point. Not only did I learn a step-by-step system for how to come up with my own content and find my own clients, I also was inspired to get into action IMMEDIATELY! Within one month after the first Live Event I had delivered my very own workshop. I was now on the path for getting paid to take the stage!
Within 1 year, my new training company was earning six figures and surpassed the revenue I had been making in my print and promotion business. Within 18 months that doubled! On average, I earn $20,000 - 40,000 at my weekend workshops. I've also grown from being a solo entrepreneur to hiring a team of 5 to support the growth of both businesses.
I'm so passionate about making such a huge difference. I love helping entrepreneurs and small business owners find their power and greater success in their businesses. I often feel like a little kid who never wants to go to bed because I'm having so much fun with my business! Thank you, Jesse and Sharla!”
“Thrive has helped me get out of my own way so that I can focus consistently on serving from the heart."
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I felt great about helping people eat food they love and still achieve their ideal weight. But I was struggling to accept money for the value I delivered.
As of January 2012 I was only bringing in about $3000 per month. I was so uncomfortable with the money conversation that when one client asked me how much I charge, I told him "whatever you think."
In the Client Attraction Mastery program I really learned how to stand in my value. As I did
that, I began to create results with my clients beyond anything I imagined. Before they were happy, but now they tell me they're getting more than they ever expected from a coach -- freedom from emotional eating, a healthy relationship with food, and rapidly losing weight without killing themselves at the gym.
Now I have a full practice. My highest earning month so far has been $12,000. Thrive has helped me get out of my own way so that I can focus consistently on serving from the heart."
Katharine Pike, Holistic Health Coach
“I earned $13,200 as a coach AND my manufacturing company had $15,338 in new sales - all in the first month of the programs!”
“When I first started working with Jesse and Sharla, I had three paying clients in my coaching practice and was earning less than $300 a month. My 25 year manufacturing business that I run with my husband was at a low point. And I felt frustrated and resigned. I didn’t know how to break away from my “desk job” in my own company and make a difference (and more money) with my speaking.
In the Client Attraction Mastery program I had the breakthrough I needed - I finally valued myself and what I offer. Coupled with my new Heartselling skills and all the templates, I earned $13,200 as a coach AND my manufacturing company had $15,338 in new sales - all in the first month of the programs! I have also found powerful JV partners, along with tons of support, in this community. Thank you!”
Wingman for the Motivational Speaker
“Before working with Sharla and Jesse, I was working one-on-one with clients struggling every month to create a steady flow of income. This was very stressful because I am a single parent, solely responsible for supporting myself and my kids.
I decided to invest in the Platinum Program. By doing all three programs, I gained the confidence and tools I needed to grow a more leveraged business.
I now have 2 information products (Thriving Together: 5 Secrets to a Child Friendly Divorce and Virtual Training System for Professionals: 5 Keys to Bringing Self Awareness to the Table) and have started a year-long program for divorcing parents. I now have a steady flow of income, earning around $14,000 in my best months. And I am on track to earning six figures this year! All the while serving more people and doing what I love to make the world a safer, gentler, more compassionate place for children of divorce.
Thanks, Jesse and Sharla, for your inspiration and support. And thanks Missy and Megan for your coaching and guidance along the way. It's a great team!”
Cat J. Zavis, J.D., M.A.
“In 5 weeks time I went from very little income (just enough to get by on) to $240,000!”
"I was at a financial and physical low before working with Jesse and Sharla. I was totally lost and didn't have any direction with my career. And I was realizing the consequences of constantly saying yes to others. I was looking for mentors and a smarter way to provide for my family. Jesse and Sharla's perspective and results were so radically different from mine I had to say YES to their programs! (Because in saying YES to them I was saying YES to myself!)
Through the Client Attraction Mastery program I gained the tools and direction I needed. I started asking, "What's the most leveraged use of my time?" People started calling me out of the woodwork and asking for care. My energy was up because now I knew my yes's were leading to somewhere I wanted to go and I could say no when needed.
In 5 weeks time I went from very little income (just enough to get by on) to $240,000! And I went from seeing under 10 people to providing wellness care programs for almost 450 people! The great thing is that now I have more free time and more creative energy. I have more time for my children while serving more people and my self care program is central to my life and my ability to serve.”
Dr. Jasmine Therese Esguerra, DC
“I'm literally making twice the money in half the time sharing my gifts with way more than twice as many people...”
“At my lowest point before working with Thrive Academy I was working over 60 hours a week and barely making $5K/month. I felt incredibly unfulfilled with the way I was working and wasn’t having a large-scale impact in the ways I wanted to. I was helping my clients grow their businesses with simple systems and strategies yet was missing some key pieces to take my own business to the next level.
I’ve already completely redesigned my business, AND my life, thanks to the concepts taught (in such an effective manner) in Six Figure Speaker. I’ve made phenomenal connections and reaped the benefits of being completely supported by a like-minded community. Now I’m working where and when I want with my ideal clients and am able to serve more people more efficiently. As a result I’m having a much larger impact.
In the second weekend of Six Figure Speaker I had the opportunity to present my virtual program, “Overwhelmed to Organized” from the stage. In 12 minutes on stage I made $5,000 and I had at least another $5,000 in client sales as a direct result of contacts made in the program. That’s a total of over $10,000 in 30 days or less… and I’m just getting started!
This past month I broke the $10,000 mark and I'm on track for earning six figures, while working LESS than 40 hours/week! I'm literally making twice the money in half the time sharing my gifts with way more than twice as many people - it's a win-win for everyone. I have so much more time to be creative and deliver even more results to my growing list of private clients.
Six Figure Speaker is such an amazing compilation of templates, coaching, accountability, networking, motivation, support… this list truly goes on and on. Thank you!
Sara Flowers, Business Growth Consultant
“My life is unrecognizable from a few years ago...”
“I have fully stepped into my purpose as a transformational leader working just 4 days each week. My clients rave about the changes in their lives and most of my clients keep re-booking. I now have the time and money to travel and enjoy my life.”
Tomasa Macapinlac, Self-Care Queen
“I doubled my income in the first month of the Thrive program!”
Before learning from Sharla and Jesse, I was gradually getting overwhelmed. I felt happy and fulfilled coaching and helping people get over PTSD and distress (rape, accident, broken heart, being a hostage...) in just 6 sessions. But, the high amount of repetitive work was frustrating me. I wanted to find a way to help more people, but with less time invested and minimum repetition.
I had never learned and marketed my business before joining Thrive. As a former United Nations consultant I became a UN vendor with my coaching and most of my clients would come from referrals. Marketing was out of my comfort zone. I bought 5 online home study marketing courses, studied them and decided that the Thrive Academy is the best for me.
I was looking to learn how to work with groups and develop a Home Study course. The first part of the whole Thrive Program was Client Attraction Mastery and I took it seriously. Among the many things I learned was how to coach clients to make the best decisions for themselves when they had concerns (money, time, spouse) about investing in themselves. Before Thrive, I would never address these topics. Thank you Jesse for explaining that “dancing with concerns” is an integral and absolutely necessary part of helping people! That almost doubled my income in the first month from $6-7K to $12K!
The program has also helped me pick a second niche to develop an online course: working parents with teens who have a lot of distress. They are undergoing the traumatic stress almost every single day. I am very passionate about this niche because half of my clients are working parents. I also have a laboratory at home: my 16-year-old daughter who helps me in developing this courseJ! Sharla’s step-by-step teaching of how to organize and turn the repetitive part of my work into a Home Study Course “Turning Teen Behavior Around” was a breakthrough for me. I learned several strategies that could help me to coach groups and have fun. I am planning to start the course, hopefully, at the end of this summer.
One more thing about Thrive’s live events: I do not need to work out on those days because I can dance with people during the breaks and be in the best learning state!
“I now have VIP packages that sell well at $11,000 for 16 hours of coaching!”
Years before I joined Thrive, my son said “Mom, until you pick one thing that you do, I don’t think you will have the level of success you are capable of. It must be hard because you are so good at so many things.” It felt impossible to just pick one from the smorgasbord of creative work I was doing. I loved them all. Letting go of any of them felt like a huge loss. The main obstacle in all of them was sales. I hate hate hated selling.
My neighbor had attended a Summit and described Heartselling to me. I felt huge relief that there could be a way to sell that had integrity and connection. I went in the house and signed up for the upcoming Summit.
Both Jesse and Sharla addressed this common challenge for coaches and health practitioners of being knowledgeable and experienced in many areas as they guided us to whittle it down and choose our “niche”. I struggled a lot trying to define mine. I remember Jesse saying “Pick the people you want to spend your life with.” I let go of my many forms of work and committed to my Speaking Coaching and had a rough first six months until at Client Attraction Mastery I got clear about who my ideal clients were and I had liftoff.
The beauty of Thrive for me is that both the inner and outer obstacles are addressed. Old beliefs and patterns are dismantled and heartfelt, effective business systems are taught.
I had never even heard of selling packages of coaching sessions and had only sold hour by hour ($75 per) often with people calling in urgency “I have a talk on Tuesday. I need help!” I would work with them and not hear again until the next emergency.
After Client Attraction Mastery I soon started selling $2,000 ten session packages and had clients renew for another round because they are amazed at the transformation they have and “want more”. Less than a year after Summit, I created (with the fabulous help of my Thrive coach) and sold a VIP Custom Package for $11,000 for 16 hours of coaching.
I am delighted and grateful that with the wisdom and support of Thrive Academy, I am able to deeply own my value, be of service to my amazing clients and make these leaps forward financially and personally.
“My business is soaring in ways I couldn’t even envision 18 months ago!”
Before starting with Thrive, I had been in business for almost 2 years and was doing fairly well. I actually came to the Summit because I had connected with Sharla at an event we were speaking at and I wanted to get to know her better and be in her circle. I was totally being a groupie.
I got so much more than a friendship with Sharla. My business is soaring in ways I couldn’t even envision 18 months ago. I have learned to trust myself and to listen to my gut about the directions to take my programs. I am working in a way that is completely aligned with my values and is a reflection of my deepest beliefs about people and transformation. It’s crazy, but this simplification of my offerings and clarity of niche has clients flocking to me, instead of me having to chase them. I have been signing clients up for multi-year programs at $50,000 per year and I am speaking to groups across the country about how they can love their business and be more successful than they thought possible. My income has soared, I am working far less hours and am happier and more satisfied than I have ever been.
The true beauty of what I’ve gotten from Thrive is so much more than the income. I now have a family, a place where I am completely accepted for who I am, with whom I can be vulnerable, authentic and raw and know that I am covered. I have returned to myself, and am confident in my abilities and worthiness. I am supported, loved and appreciated. I get to be part of a tribe doing amazing transformational work in a world that doesn’t always understand – and as a Lifetime member, I have a place to come forever that reminds me that I’m not alone. Heart-centered, transformational caring business owners are with me in spirit, supporting me wherever I am.
Thanks to Jesse, Sharla and the entire Thrive community, I love my life and my business!

“I recently paid off all my credit card debt and filled my yearlong program!”
Before I found Thrive, I had been building my therapy practice very slowly and with a lot of effort. My passion is guiding small groups of women in gorgeous outdoor settings where they can experience the profound healing and transformation of connecting with nature. Pre Thrive, I was struggling to fill my trips. I was increasing my yearly income very slowly and carrying the burden of credit card debt.
Over the course of being in the Mastery program, I was inspired to dream big about my business and take it to a whole new level. Being in the room with other incredible people growing their businesses helped me see my value and see that I could step into a higher version of myself. I really felt Jesse and Sharla calling us out to give our gifts fully.
With this new found confidence and direction and with the support of Thrive, I created a yearlong program for women that brought together all the best of my many years of being a therapist and wilderness guide. I filled my yearlong program, making close to $25,000, which was the biggest boost ever to my income. I am now leading my second yearlong program and recently paid off all of my credit card debt! The best part is that because I stepped into my fullest self, my clients are experiencing profound transformation and doing amazing things in their lives!

"We’re now making over $200,000 a year in a brand new business."
“When we came to Thrive, we had a pretty successful private practice, but we were working so hard, we hadn’t taken a vacation in years! If we didn’t see patients, we didn’t make money and couldn’t maintain our lifestyle.
More important is that we had a vision to do something really big where we could impact lots more people than was possible just seeing patients one-on-one. Thrive programs helped us go from one-on-one work to working with hundreds of more clients at any given time. We created our first group program, where we can lead calls from anywhere in the world. We’ve led our program from Mexico and even from lake Tahoe in between ski slopes! And we’re now making over $200,000 a year in a brand new business.
The best part is that our clients have lost over 4,000 lbs collectively.
What we learned at Thrive allows us to make a huge difference and even earn a living while we’re sleeping and on vacation. What used to be a pipe dream is now a reality for us - and we know we’re going to be leaving a legacy.”

“85% of my free consultation conversations turn into clients!”
I chose Jesse and Sharla as my mentors right as I was starting my business, because I knew I needed a strong foundation of business skills and a community of supportive peers. Without Thrive, building my business alone would have been painful and slow-going.
In the Thrive classroom, I learned how to be confident in my own worth and stand in the power of my services. Thrive taught me how to have sales conversations in alignment with my values, and I am thrilled that currently 85% of my free consultation conversations turn into clients. I went from my heart beating out of my chest every time I raised my hand to speak, to delivering a cross-country speaking tour with ease.
My last launch generated over $11,000, enrolling clients into an online group program with participants from all over the country. In the three years since I started my business and my time with Thrive, I’ve tripled my income every year and I’m on track to triple again in 2016. My business model going forward will support me to make $150,000 while only working about 75-100 hours a month.
I’m deeply grateful to Jesse and Sharla and the Thrive community for all of the support and learning. I wouldn't be here without out them.
“I went from just enough to survive to THRIVE in a life of my design!”
My 20-year marriage had fallen apart right before I found Thrive Academy. Only knowing financial struggle with my husband, I was now left to manage it all on my own, as a single mom. Even though I put on a very strong front, I was terrified every day that I wouldn’t be able to keep a roof over our heads and healthy food in our mouths.
I had been a self-employed massage therapist and workshop facilitator for years, however my clientele and cash flow were inconsistent and it quickly became necessary for me to get a job to support us. I was miserable working for someone else and STILL barely making enough to survive. I even had to rely on state assistance to help with food and medical expenses. It was obviously time for a big change and that’s when I discovered The Client Attraction Summit.
When I walked into a conference room 3 years ago, it was my very first event like this. When someone asked “what do you do” I said I was “a massage therapist…plus SO much more.” With all of my different massage/healing certifications and tantric shamanic training…I couldn’t really describe what I did for my clients (in a way that made sense). All that changed at Thrive Academy.
Jesse and Sharla are the first business mentors I invested in. It was a huge stretch for me to make that commitment, since I was already financially tapped out. However, I knew that nothing was going to change if I didn’t take risks. So I took a leap of faith and signed up. I spent my "last" dollars to join Thrive in the spring of 2013. My commitment created miracles...By spring of 2014 I was in Lifetime and this last Jan 2016, notoriously the slowest month of the year, I joined the $10,000 a month club with $18,500! A monthly income so high that it compares to my yearly income of previous years.
What I’ve received in EACH program has been invaluable in my business and in my life. My purpose became even more clear, more specific to the powerful gifts I personally bring to our world…not just due to the courses I took, but because my entire life has been the blueprint. In this process of business building, marketing, speaking, and leveraging; I've learned more about myself and my gifts and my potential than I would have ever given myself credit for before.
Breakthrough after breakthrough, template after template, content after content, Jesse and Sharla didn’t just teach me how to get more clients; they showed me that there is wisdom in my wounds; there is power in my pain…and there is a theme that my life path has followed. Being at Thrive first helped me realize that my expertise runs much deeper than I had ever imagined and then helped me put the puzzle pieces together so I can show up more fully in the world as the transformational mentor I am.
Now that I’m clear what I do: I work with high-powered, sexually ripening women in leadership who have traded their desire for responsibility and ambition for too long and are now ready to create soulful, fulfilling sex lives; and with continuously applying what I learned at Thrive…my business is flourishing on a whole new level. I went from just enough to survive…
...to THRIVE in a life of my design!
