“I went from getting paid hourly to being paid for the value that I bring to my client!”
Before I met Jesse and Sharla, I had a successful Bookkeeping business, but there was a problem, my revenue couldn’t grow more because I was charging hourly for my work and I was already at the maximum hourly rate for the profession. My biggest month then was $7,500 and I worked nights and weekends during that month to reach this. I was happy in this field but I knew something was missing.
During the Client Attraction Summit I not only found the missing part of the puzzle but it also brought me clarity. I was SO INSPIRED! When I left the Summit, I knew what had to change in my business. It was scary and I knew that if I wanted to make it happened, I had to let go of my main client that was bringing me 75% of my revenue and using 85% of my time.
After attending Client Attraction Mastery, I was clear on what my packages could look like and went all-in for the 30-day challenge which supported me so much in gaining momentum. Not only did I have new services to offer and now the time (since I let go of my main client), I also had a plan to follow!! The seeds that I spread during my 30-day challenge grew and within 45 days I had my first 5-figure month in the business I had been running for the past 4 ½ years!! Thrive helped me to break that revenue ceiling that I had put myself under!
That was just the beginning. Now I’m speaking at events, which I’ve never done before and I’m making more money and I’m working way less doing what I really love, teaching in the business financial field!!!
Thank you, Thrive Academy, for the eye opening and putting me on the right path!!!
“Best of all, I’m getting new clients and making more money! I brought in $12,702.86 this month!”
Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was a working artist trying to make ends meet. I sold work through galleries and buffered my income with multiple teaching jobs.
When I realized that only three more sales of art per year would exceed my entire year’s teaching salary, I quit to make art full time. Pretty soon, I yearned to teach again and decided to start coaching.
I attended the Client Attraction Summit in January 2014. I was so blown away by the 5 Elements of Heartselling; they appeared to me to be actual stepping stones to success. For the first time, I realized:
- Though having sold my work through galleries all my life, I knew NOTHING about sales
- I was trying to figure everything out on my own by observing successful people and guesswork
- I had invested very little in marketing and didn’t really know what it was
- I was doing everything backwards by trying to go right to live events without building a client base, and, most of all:
- I needed a teacher!
It came as a great relief to find not only two great teachers, but a third in my coach, Ivana, and countless others who surround me at events. I’m still stunned to realize how many new friends I’ve made through Thrive, and how many of those friends have become my coaches, clients, colleagues, and dear friends. What a gift I gave myself! The program itself feels holistic, and I’ve grown in every direction from attending Thrive events.
During a transformational exercise at the Summit, I remember putting down the recurring, moldy thought: “I don’t know how to do this,” along with the heavy chair I was holding to represent that weight. I DO know how to do this, and what I don’t know, I can learn. Learning to ask for help, and what is actually HELPFUL in this business, has made all the difference! Each template is a MAP, period. Those stepping stones have grounded me in a sequence, a physical, tangible, set of things to DO.
As a result of your programs I’ve built a real coaching business that’s expanding all the time. Learning the concept of the *PACKAGE* (now my favorite word) was key for me, and within a few short months following the Summit, I had 6 new private clients!
I’ve started a Meetup Group which now has over 400 members in Tucson and meets once a month. I lead the group like a rockstar, speaking on a topic critical to creativity, while positioning myself as an expert and seeding programs the whole time. I learned these things from you and they are so valuable!!! Several members of my Meetup group have now enrolled in my group program, so I’m learning to create funnels, which is like learning to build an engine, right? What a difference there is between running without an engine to humming with one!
I’ve also held a live, day-long event which attracted more attendees than ever before, and I have spoken publicly about creativity in my community. I also launched my online group mentoring program, “The Flowzone,” which helps creative people do their best work. I have to show up each week, with big value and my whole heart.
I’ve been interviewed for a few great podcasts, on AM talk radio, and invited to speak to the design students at The University of California: Long Beach, the result of my attending a conference for women industrial designers. I also picked up two fabulous clients as a result of that conference!
This past month, I was invited to be an affiliate partner and contributing blogger to ArtworkArchive.com, an inventory web service for artists. I’m also working as an affiliate on a major launch for another coach, both an honor and a great financial opportunity. The phone is ringing, and every day brings new possible jobs.
Best of all, I’m getting clients I adore and making more money! Finally, because of my coaching practice, I brought in $12,702.86 this month!.
I LOVE being a high performance coach to creative professionals. I LOVE watching people have big revelations and moments of growth because of something I said. And I love watching their confidence grow, as mine has because of Thrive.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

“I had a $27,000 weekend at my first sold-out two-day event!”
When I met Jesse and Sharla, I was juggling two careers and two kids as a single mom, spending more money on my coaching business than I was making (my accountant called it an “expensive hobby”). I had no idea how to sign someone up for coaching at the end of a consult, was extremely uncomfortable with the idea of “sales,” and couldn’t figure out how to earn an income doing what I loved. When I went to the Client Attraction Summit in April 2016, I didn’t have a single client, and felt like a fraud.
Joining Thrive was the best thing I could have done for my business. I finally found a method of selling that worked for me – heartselling. I learned how to conduct a successful consult, ask for help, and speak on stage. And their templates shaved many, many hours off of my work…I was stunned at how well they worked! Like magic, one client after another starting signing up for private coaching. And then after Speaker II, I began leading live events, and recently had a $27,000 weekend at my first sold-out two-day event!
I can’t express how grateful I am to Jesse, Sharla, and the amazing Thrive community for all of their tremendous support. I truly couldn’t have done it without them, and am so glad I signed up for Lifetime.
And the most exciting part of my newfound success? After four years of juggling two businesses, I have finally gone full-time with my coaching business! I am elated that my dream is now a reality, and that I am helping single women around the world turn their heartbreak into a breakthrough!

“This will be my third month in a row making over $10,000.”
Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was stuck at an imaginary ceiling in my business, even though I had helped change thousands of lives with my work, both online and in person, my income had stalled and my group classes had fizzled. After 23 years in the coaching industry I felt defeated and frustrated. My clients loved me, I was getting them great results, I just wasn't attracting enough clients.
During the Thrive programs, I got clear that it wasn't that I was asking too much for my services but rather I wasn't valuing myself and my unique gifts enough. After reading Jesse and Sharla's book, The Art of Attracting Clients, I realized that I needed to value the work I did by the difference it made in the lives of my clients and I gave myself a raise.
By the time I got to the Client Attraction Summit I had already had my first $11,500 week. It was as if a switch had been turned on. After the Client Attraction Summit, I felt an even deeper understanding of what was possible for myself and my business. The ability to connect with ideal clients using the Heartselling method made it easy to show up in service and receive the financial rewards that followed.
As a result of the programs, I have made over $30,000 in new sales in less than 45 days. This will be my third month in a row making over $10,000. I feel excited to work with clients who are willing to step up and participate at a higher level and happily invest in my programs and services. There is no ceiling, I am on track to have a multi-six figure income next year, and earlier this year I held my first luxury vision quest retreat in Thailand. I’m currently planning my second retreat, this time to Costa Rica with a select group of Master Creator clients. Because of the work I've done at Thrive, I know there is no limit to the success I can achieve when I show up fully and work from the heart.

“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!”
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.”

“$40k in 3 months... in a completely new country”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I had just begun working with a business coach 1:1 to make my business work.
I don’t live in the US, and was there for vacation when I found out about Thrive just a few days before the Client Attraction Summit. I flew there because a friend I trusted recommended it and after watching each one of Sharla’s videos, I decided to attend. I made a promise to myself that to make it worth it, I needed to play full out and hit certain targets I set. The heart-centered strategist there that day made me feel connected and honored in ways that other seminar assistants from other events hadn't, and I felt the genuineness in the community and the work and magic that was happening incredibly alluring... I was curious and took a huge leap of faith! It was so worth it.
During my work with Thrive Academy, I had breakthroughs after breakthroughs, in life and in my business. The combination of an amazing heart-centered community, leaders who model strong possibility mindsets, strategies to implement in my business, and friendly games/ competitions to encourage momentum, I was able to challenge myself and step into amazing versions of myself. I grew as a business woman, a leader and as a lover, daughter and friend. I continue to grow with the community.
My breakthrough came as I became more and more courageous to bring all parts of myself to the table, most importantly the courageous bold woman versus the cutesy smiley girl that I was previously so used to. It freed me up to be myself, and as a result, connect much deeper and more authentically in my work with clients. Creating the funds and opportunities to come to Thrive for 7 events on 12-18 hours flights was also a big breakthrough in my commitment to myself, being part of a community and doing the work. Every program helped. My biggest breakthrough came during Six Figure Speaker, winning 4th in the Top 10 and sharing my offer on the stage...it was scary. The breakthrough was the coaching after (on stage) where my self critics completely took control and made me feel like a failure. With permission, Jesse shared my “story” with the whole group, that I was boring, and the whole group shouted, 'No!!!!!'. That experience changed me forever. The internal shifts it made catapulted my success in my business. During that summer, I hit my first $40k quarter, created and ran my first Freedom Success Formula Group Coaching Program which ABC, FOX, and NBC covered, ran this while traveling SF, LA, Oman, Dubai, Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Paris, Bali, and am authored a book on a You Only Live Once (YOLO) Lifestyle and Business (where spirit meets action
As a result of the Thrive programs, I had a clear strategy on how to achieve the goals I set, transforming lives while creating an amazing You Only Live Once (YOLO) lifestyle. Thrive showed me what true community and collaboration meant. It's an honor to be surrounded and supported by transformational leaders who lift each other up and let each other shine their brightest. My biggest gift was trust: trusting Jesse, Sharla, the community and most importantly my vision and myself."

“My income went from $1,800 to $15,000 per month…”
"Before I came to the Client Attraction Summit, I used to sit in my office and hope clients would miraculously come to me by referrals. If I did have a conversation with clients after they came, I would be so grateful that they trusted me and came to me, that I felt bad charging and would give them a huge discount on everything.
Then I took the Client Attraction Summit 2 Day Intensive and I learned so much. I went from a 12’ x 12’ office and $1,800 per month to an office with four treatment rooms and between $15,000 per month in income.”
Since then I am a women's health expert for First, O, Shape, and Prevention magazines and have been featured on FOX NEWS NATIONALLY and CW stations in Denver. I’m currently working on my second PH.D in Counseling.”

“65% of my Free Consults 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 65% 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 $35,000, enrolling clients into an online group program with participants from all over the country and world. In the four years since I started my business and my time with Thrive, I’ve tripled my income every year and I’m on track to double again in 2017. 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 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!”

“My business is thriving…earning over $500,000 last year and growing!”
“Working with Jesse and Sharla has been critical for my business. They taught me how to have Heartselling conversations where over 50% of the potential clients I talk with turn into high-end coaching clients.
And I can lead any teleseminar, speaking gig or live event with confidence because of the Thrive templates. At my recent live event, I made $55,000 and lives were changed.
My business is thriving… earning over $500,000 last year and growing!”

“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
“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.”

“I had to raise my rates 3 times in 3 months due to being overbooked!”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I had been stuck in my business and had a dream of developing a program to help inspire women to live the life of their dreams. I was making decent money, but it wasn’t anything to write home about. Every month was the same and I had no idea how to break that ceiling. I had a dream of doing something big, but had no idea how to get there. When I met Jesse and Sharla, I realized this was my path to creating my dream business.
During the programs, I launched my new coaching business working with women who are stuck in their careers and know they have a bigger purpose, I help them discover their life purpose and turn it into a thriving business. I had to raise my rates 3 times in three months due to being overly booked. Each month since I have been enrolled in platinum has been a record breaking month. They make everything easy to follow. All I have to do, is do what they say and it works every time.
Now that I am completely booked with one on one clients I am launching my dream group program this month. I am on track to leaving my job in 2 months and couldn’t be happier."

“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.

“Connection matters more than anything. I went from $500 a month to $12,500 a month!”
“Before investing with Jesse and Sharla, I was feeling totally lost and not so hopeful that I could establish myself in the love and relationships field. Utterly lost and overwhelmed were the major feelings I faced each day. Three years ago, I was a multi-talented coach who was underutilized and earning about $500 a month. Last month, I made $12,500.
Looking back now, the biggest lesson and gift I learned was during Six Figure Speaker. As a graduate professor, I never really had to worry that much about connection or managing the arc of energy in the room. The more I practiced ‘connection matters more than anything’, the more success came to me.
At my last event, there were several times when I could have lost control of the energy in the room. There was a lot of concern in the room about having a photographer. Some felt it not safe. Before, I might not have noticed that enough. Or, I might not have ‘danced’ with that concern enough throughout the weekend. The result of paying attention to the energy in the room was a very successful event. One person left saying it was “one of the best and most heart felt workshops they I have ever attended.”
I treasure all that I learned about ‘connection matters more than anything.’ It not only changed my business, but it transformed ME. I like myself way better and all of my relationships, not just on stage or in business, feel more fulfilling!
From my heart, Jesse and Sharla, I thank you for being such strong leaders in my village of support. Much love to you both!”

"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.”
Tom Yarema, MD and Sumer Joy, CEO
“I have reduced my client schedule to 4 days a week and have staff trained and in place to serve our clients and allow the business to continue to grow!”
“I have had a successful practice for 20 years. Several years ago, I started to hire additional acupuncturists so that I could decrease my workload. As I have grown this model (I have 3 acupuncturists as employees), and as I have matured, the stress of running a practice has caught up with me. By the end of November 2014 I was feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. And, as a clinic, we were not seeing the number of clients we had a capacity to see.
I was seeing the majority on a one-on-one basis. My acupuncturists were underperforming. I wanted to see less and have my practitioners see more. At the same time my weight significantly increased and my blood pressure spiked to 186/107. I was terrified as I have a building to pay for and a staff of 7 to pay as well as patients who depend on me. After attending the Client Attraction Summit in December, my wife, who is the clinic administrator, determined that Thrive Academy was what we needed to not only move the practice forward but to also allow us to change what we needed to do to take care of ourselves as well as our patients and our staff. I especially wanted to reach more people and bring them into our clinic without having to see all of them. The task seemed daunting.
- The Platinum Program gave me a way to address all of the areas I needed to take the practice to the next level… the level where we wanted to be.
- Client Attraction Mastery taught me the principles of Heartselling, which provided the confidence to enroll more patients with authenticity and deepen relationships. The Dancing with Concerns has created better client retention. I’ve been able to teach my acupuncturists and administrative staff the same principles for them to take advantage of as well.
- Leverage helped me to create a high-end program so I can reach more people, make more money and have more time for self-care.
- Six figure Speaker affords me the confidence and tools to reach a greater number of people, show up as the expert, and create demand for our services, that will help fill our practitioners schedules and help to launch my workshops
- Transformational Leadership gave me tools to be the leader I knew I could be to make a positive impact on my staff and help them be the best they can be.
We are positioning the practice to increase our clients from 350 to 400 consistently in the next 3 months and empowering our staff using the Heartselling conversations, Free Consultations converting potential clients to reach my dream of serving 500 clients per month by end of the year without me having to work harder!!! I have been able to reduce my client schedule from 5 to 4 days per week and to follow a self- care plan that has created better health. I chose to focus on self- care and reduce stress and I am happy to say my blood pressure has returned to normal on a consistent basis. I have the support and tools to position me in fulfilling my life mission and live a vibrant and magnificent life.”
“Finally giving myself a profit paycheck”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was on a precipice. I had finally settled into work that felt right, and I was coaching a couple of long-term clients and running my group program twice a year. And yet, I had been working on my business full time for 4 YEARS and still every quarter my business expenses would cancel out any profit. I was living off dwindling savings.
I could see the other side but had no clue how to tip myself over. Then I hit a heartbreaking divorce and moved back in with my parents with just a couple months left to make it work. The pressure was on.
Joining Thrive was the tipping point. The community energy revived me, and Jesse and Sharla helped me move through fears I didn’t realize were holding me back. I went from feeling drained and unstructured to being intentional.
I made 10K in my first 30 days doing the program. The relief I felt moved me to tears. And the most exciting part? Finally giving myself a paycheck from the $7,000 net profit that quarter."
"This is such great fun!”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was doing 2 healing sessions a week. My clients were getting phenomenal results, however without any concept of marketing, I was not able to reach my audience. I felt like I was wasting my gifts and I was dipping into family funds to keep my practice going.
I accepted an invitation to listen to Sharla’s teleseminar. As I listened intently, all the puzzle pieces started to fall into place and I could envision my practice growing. As Sharla spoke, I tapped into her energy and found her to be filled with sincere integrity. I immediately signed up for the Client Attraction Summit, knowing I had found a mentor.
During the Summit, I drank in the marketing information and carefully studied the templates. I totally resonate with “Heartselling”, because it is based on caring about your clients…caring enough to give them your absolute best. I spoke to my spirit guides and signed up for Platinum!
I attended Mastery Launch in February 2017. It was interesting, fun and exhilarating. Jesse, Sharla and the templates created a system, where I could easily plug in my personality, along with my services. My Thrive Business Coach helped me create a unique niche, which offers a free 30 minute “Ignite Your Spiritual Groove” Discovery Session.
I returned for Mastery Acceleration in March. I can’t adequately express how excited and almost giddy I was when I heard my name called out for being the top producer. I had made over $23,000 in one month! And, I have sold over $16,000 in the 3 weeks since then!
This is such great fun! My clients are reaching new heights of health and JOY, as they layer the healings' momentum, by having sessions weekly, instead of 'whenever'."
“Within a few months, …I stopped being afraid to talk about money and 90% of the people who came to me for the first time committed to at least 10 sessions!”
“Before I started working with Jesse and Sharla, I was at the top of the chart in terms of experience and expertise… and near the bottom in terms of getting clients into my holistic practice.
I was ready to give up, but managed to come to the Client Attraction Summit with an open mind… and in those two days, I changed course and started moving in the direction I wanted to go.
Within a few months, I was getting results that astonished me -- when I stopped being afraid to talk about money, 90% of the people who came to me for the first time committed to at least 10 sessions!
When Jesse told me that there were two ways I could have a big impact even if I lived in a small town -- travel or get on the phone -- I took the Six Figure Speaker approach and immediately scheduled my first webinar. The speaker templates that helped me write my first script still form the basis of my presentations on line and from the stage.
Over time, there's been a shift in what I offer and who I work with -- and the skills I learned in Thrive's programs continue to give me a concrete basis for success.
My daughters are grown and live in Canada and Turkey, so a big part of my "Big WHY" has to do with having time and resources to be with them. In 2013, I broke the $10,000 a month mark 3 times, even though I spent nearly 3 months with my girls! It just wouldn't have happened without Jesse and Sharla and their dedication to give deeply from their hearts in every Thrive program.”
“Doubled my monthly income to $11,000+ within 3 months!”
"Before joining Thrive Academy I had experienced three traumatic life events: breast cancer, divorce, and a loss of my office I had worked from for 15 years. My private practice took a big hit, and I became frightened that I would not be able to support myself and my daughters. Slowly but surely, I moved through depression and rebuilt my practice, but there was very little left over month after month and college for my daughters loomed in the not too distant future.
Then, a dear friend sent me an email, about the Client Attraction Summit. Upon first glance, my whole body erupted in chills. I knew I was supposed to be there. I signed up immediately, and that is how I came to be at the Client Attraction Summit of January, 2017. I had direct recognition of multiple souls on the staff & team, so it was a no-brainer to go straight to Lifetime Membership with Thrive. Seriously, this is the best gift I have ever given myself! From this place, my monthly income doubled within 3 months, taking me into the 10,000 Month club!
Honestly, this story is for you, if you haven’t yet picked a niche, or are still working on your “What do you do?” statement.” I was able to double my income mostly from using what I learned in Client Attraction Mastery about positioning myself, while still only working 3 days a week, at an hourly rate! As a Spiritual~Psychotherapist, I have worked with clients for over 23 years and supervised MFT (Marriage and Family) Interns for 15 years. Since I have started positioning myself, no one even questions my rate.
So, here is my current WDYD, “People come to me for a variety of reasons (Relationship Issues, Anxiety, Depression & Trauma.) I have found that usually underneath the symptom are various wounds in need of transformation. I Love my clients, until they have learned to love themselves. Thus, their life can transform in all arenas.”
Because of Thrive, I have reconnected to the spiritual practices that deeply fuel me. And I have a true community of love, support and guidance. This has set me up for success as I start to dream what may be next: Webinars, Zoom Groups, & Destination Retreats. You can Dream Bigger because Thrive has your back, and has whatever resource you might be in need of. If you resonate at the Summit, I recommend Thrive-Academy as the best Business Support one could ever wish for! So far my best month, is $11K+, what will yours be?"

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think of making $18,000 in less than a month!”
“Before I met Jesse and Sharla I had just launched my brand new coaching business. I did the typical start up which is working on everything but money-making tasks. I spent 5 months without clients. I had no idea how to market to my audience and I was beginning to regret my decision in opening my business.
During the Thrive program, I learned that I simply had to have conversations with lots of people and best of all, create long lasting relationships with amazing people around the world.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think of making $18,000 in less than a month. I used to spend months and months to turn wages in my 9-5. I proved to myself that I am the best boss to myself because I give myself days off and I get to have way more spa days! I proved to myself that I can make my dreams come true.”
“I went from less than $500 a month to more than $10,000 a month!”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was playing really small. I was seeing a handful of clients a month but not making a living and not seeing a way to bring in more clients or make more money. I was making less than $500 a month and it was stressful and disappointing.
During their programs I found the courage to begin charging more for my services, I switched my niche to a more aligned direction (a couple of times) and with every event I attended I felt more confident and more visible. I began bringing that confidence into my speaking engagements (which I never had before Thrive) and hosting big events of my own. It was after about a year that I was making 10 times what I had made before Thrive, and still, I was aching for more.
I realized then that even though I was showing up to Thrive, using the templates in my business, selling packages to my clients and running a group program, I wasn’t Heartselling nearly as much as I could be. Especially now that I had landed on a niche that was truly utilizing my gifts and people were responding. So I recommitted to Heartselling and having conversations with people where I was both vulnerable and positioned and BOOM, I had my first $10k month. $10,296 to be exact.
This is a HUGE win!!! It’s more than 20 times what I was making before I joined Thrive.
In the 18 months I’ve been a member, I’ve watched a lot of my friends have $10k months and I was always happy for them and also worried that I would never make it. Realizing that I wasn’t utilizing all the incredible tools at my disposal was the turning point. This shit WORKS, as long as you actually work it, and sometimes that takes a little while to really get the hang of. (Thankfully they have a lifetime membership program which meant I could come back as many times as I needed to really ‘get it’.)
I’m finally enjoying the benefits of the business I always wanted to create. I frequently have two and three thousand dollar days. I can work from anywhere in the world and I can take time off whenever I want. Next week I’m taking a month off and cruising across the Atlantic for a writing retreat. After that I’m going on a 5 week road trip around the country visiting loved ones and speaking at different events.
My group program is selling, my coaching practice is practically full and I have no doubt that there are more $10k months in my future because I have all the tools I need to make it happen. I am so utterly grateful to have found this community and these mentors in my life. Things will never be the same. "
“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
“In my zone of genius...”
"When I came to the Summit I had this idea that I wanted to build a company called EQ Schools that provides training to educators on mindfulness, emotional intelligence, positive psychology, and the importance of play. I had a certain sense of belief in my ability, but it wasn’t cemented in. The idea that I could have a big impact required me to fully believe in myself, and I wasn’t there yet. I already had opportunities to speak, with my biggest gig paying $2k, but I couldn’t see the business structure as one that would allow me to walk away from the classroom.
Blown away by the energy, the people and everything the Summit provided for me, I felt kinda bummed because I knew I couldn’t afford to sign up for the programs… but then I realized that I couldn’t afford NOT to! So I asked my wife if we could get a HELOC loan to pay for it. It was really scary, because I was just a teacher at the time; my business hadn’t really been much more than an idea at the time. Money was so stressful for my wife and me at that time, as we were a 1-income family.
Just three months after I joined, I made it to my first $10K month! But really, the breakthrough coaching was a moment that changed my life. It cemented my belief in myself, and my capacity to do this. I felt so free and confident afterwards. I took heartselling to schools and filled our first conference with over 150 guests, making at least $50K in revenue from that one event. I was like, “Wow, this shit really works!” My last conference had over 400 people in attendance! I realized I had had a misconception of what sales really is. I now realize that really sales is all about coming from a place of service.
My primary source of income is leading workshops in schools, keynotes and speaking gigs in districts and other organizations. It’s not uncommon for me to land a $7K-$10K speaking deal now for 4-5 hours of my time.
I had a $40K MONTH while still working my full-time job and home schooling our kids.
And I’m so grateful for this community! I teach people about the importance of social support, but didn’t really ‘get it’ until I joined the community of Thrive. It provided the space I needed to get in touch with my vulnerable side, and I have made friendships that will last a lifetime, for sure!
14 months ago, I couldn't have imagined that by now I'd be taking a leave of absence next year from teaching, that I would be totally focused on the business, that I would be speaking in all these different places and really doing the work that puts me in my zone of genius. And the best part is, now my wife, Allison, is fully on board as my partner in this business!"
“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’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
“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!
“Since positioning myself correctly, I have been booked solid for 3 months!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I didn’t know how to interact with clients and serve them. I basically had no referral clients last year and I started to wonder if I should change careers.
I remember reading their book and thinking “I’m doing everything wrong. No wonder I’m not getting any clients to sign up.”
I really struggled with asking clients if they wanted to work with me. I was so afraid to get rejected. Every month I was wondering how I was going to make rent.
During the Client Attraction Mastery programs, I learned how to have a sales conversation that didn’t feel salesy. I learned how to connect to my clients by being curious about them. One of the biggest insights for me was in regards to positioning - I never used to tell my clients about myself. I thought I would be regarded as full of myself - but now I know different. By positioning myself, my clients get more committed and more excited to work with me.
After taking the program, I feel so much more confident in myself and my coaching. I have been booked solid for three months and I’m now getting referral clients!
I knew I had the coaching tools to make a difference, but now I also have the tools to interact with clients and get paid for everything I’ve done to be a great coach! And I love how I can be myself while using all these great strategies.
Next month I am going to go on a yoga retreat to Costa Rica - something that I didn’t think I would ever be able to afford! In the past I would have been stressed out about being gone for a week and not been able to make money. I love my life!”
Rebecka Heinmert, Golf Performance Coach
“(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!”

“More money, closer friends, a community that “gets” me – what could be better!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was charging very little for my services, doing a lot of barter, and was unsure of how to get clients.
I went to networking events…some people were interested but it rarely led to new clients. When people were interested I would tell them how much a charged (which looking back was very little!) and they hemmed and hawed…leading me to feel bad and cut my rates even more! Needless to say my business was NOT self supporting.
In Client Attraction Mastery, I learned how to put together my “What do you do statement”. Now I feel much more confident that when I say what I do people instantly think of someone that I can help. I can honestly say that shifting how I talk about what I do is what has made a huge shift in my business.
My life has never been better and I owe much of this to Thrive Academy. My business is very successful. So much so that last year I had two $10,000 months. I would never have imagined this before! I have joined Lifetime and fly out from New Jersey, my business paying for this easily, and love spending time with my Thrive Tribe. Many of my closest friends are in this community and I could not imagine my life otherwise! More money, closer friends, a community that “gets” me – what could be better!”
“I went from making $1,000 to $10,200 a month!!”
“Before I came to Thrive, I had been in business for 12 years. But I was only barely able to cover my bills each month. I had the same car for 12 years and was only able to take vacations to my sister’s house in Sacramento because I couldn’t afford to do anything else.
Signing up for the Client Attraction Mastery program was BIG stretch for me. And I am so glad I took that leap of faith!
Within 90 days, I had my first month where I made $8,169! The best part was that shortly after the program my only daughter was getting married. And I was able to add thousands more dollars to her wedding! At the end of that year, my mom was diagnosed with cancer for the second time. I stepped away from my business to support her. After she was well again I went back to my business and I was down to making only $1,000 that month. But I had the tools from Client Attraction Mastery. Within 90 days I was back up to $8,648 per month. Recently had my first month where I made $10,200.
I feel so grateful to Thrive for providing me with the tools to guarantee I can make six figures every year. I consistently make great money doing what I love!”
Carol Daly, CHT, MRET
“My free consultation clients are now saying yes to working with me!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was struggling with getting new clients. Even once I had a free consultation with them, I was not having them say yes because I was not asking the next question: are you ready to work with me?
I was feeling fear and stress about how I was going to pay my bills and pay off my debt.
In the Client Attraction Summit weekend I learned Heartselling and had a few “aha” moments. First, I didn’t feel alone in being an entrepreneur who was struggling – financially and emotionally. I also realized that when I did come in contact with a potential client, I had energy of desperation rather than service when speaking with them. I was able to let that go and feel much freer in my connections and able to be more present and of service.
I am going a step further and offering the free consultation to several people, rather than just giving my business card and hoping they’d call.
I am still learning, and having more Heartselling conversations. Each time I asked if the person wanted a free consultation, they said yes – that’s 3 consults and 1 conversion so far, two weeks after the weekend seminar. I also had the guts to ask leaders in my field to participate in a telesummit I plan to host; so far 3 of 5 said yes.”

"Within the first month of working with Thrive I took my $700 a month business to over $5000!"
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I felt that I would never be able to sustain myself as a coach/hypnotherapist and I had been trying to find clients anywhere and everywhere. I was working with an average of two clients a week and, most of the time, for free. I believed that it was normal to be a struggling coach like my prior life as a struggling artist. I published a book about women in midlife crisis and genuinely helped my clients pave their own ways to success, but after all I was just one good coach among many others who weren’t as fresh to the industry. Who was I to believe I could have more?
The turning point for me, was at the end of the programs’ first weekend, when I was asked to step into a group depending on whether I wanted to commit myself, and, if yes, for how long.
After this first weekend I fully committed to my people: the fabulous ladies who are tired of being lonely night after night and who want to bring love in their life. I gave my first talk as an expert in front of weight watchers team leaders and over two hundred clients, went to singles meetup groups, created my own meetup group “Date like a French Lady”, and was thrilled when 75 new members signed onto their own journey with me overnight. I was having more Heartselling conversations than I ever thought possible with potential clients lining up to talk to me after every speaking gig. Within the first month I took my $700 a month business to over $5000.
Just 7 weeks after starting my journey with Jesse and Sharla, I have an average of 10 clients a week and am starting to offer group programs in order to help all my ladies find the love they deserve. I am ready for this new next chapter toward love and abundance and looking forward to having you join me."

“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!”
Dr. Minette Riordan
“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
“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.”
"I made $16,000 in 5 weeks!!!"
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla I was struggling to fill my part-time schedule with cash paying patients. I also desired to create additional income without having to see patients one-on-one full time.
During the Client Attraction Mastery program I had my best month ever! I not only filled my part-time schedule but had to expand my hours to accommodate new patients. I also learned the importance of tracking my numbers which was something that I resisted in the past. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that I made $16,000 in 5 weeks! I am also on track for creating additional income streams around my passion for health and wellness. Thanks Jesse and Sharla for helping me to realize that my goals are well within my reach!"
Pam Middleton, MD
“My practice doubled and my 5 year business plan will be executed in 1 ½ years.”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was struggling with filling my practice. Even though I had excellent and unique services to offer, potential patients were still hesitant.
I was frustrated and didn't know what to do. I had been trained well to do my work but I didn't have any business training.
Using the tools from the Client Attraction Mastery program, I learned how to have HeartSelling conversations that helped me connect more with my clientele and show up in service.
As a result, my practice has doubled and I am executing my 5 year business growth and expansion plan in 1 1/2 years.”
"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!!"
Sean D Stewart
“I went from 10 to 20 clients in less than 90 days!”
“When I started working with Jesse and Sharla, I was about a year and a half into my coaching business working with clients with celiac disease, and even though I was doing well, I was discouraged when potential clients that I knew I could help would say, "I'd love to do this, but I just can't afford it." It really hurt my confidence to watch them walk away.
“Through Jesse and Sharla’s Client Attraction Mastery Program, I learned how to have healing conversations (without being pushy or salesy) with people who thought they couldn't afford coaching. And as a result, I went from 10 to 20 clients in less than 90 days! And I did it in a way that was in alignment with my values. In my best month, I doubled my average income and brought in over $9,000!
“I've learned so much from Jesse & Sharla and have confidence in my ability to grow (and maintain) a thriving practice.”

“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!"
“From using Heartselling I’m now on the path to meet my aggressive financial goals!”
"Before joining the Thrive Community I was enjoying some success with my Speaker and Presentation Training business, but was not reaching my admittedly aggressive financial goals that I had put in place. My intent was to at least replace my 6 figure High Tech salary – and while I was on the path to double the amount of income I'm making in this second year in business over my first, I still had a ways to go!
I loved working with the awesome Heart Selling Conversation templates - I modified them to make them reflect my own personality and style. Having the structure of those templates was so perfect for me, because in my speaker training business I provide a structure for my clients and an opportunity to practice and become comfortable speaking and presenting. And Jesse and Sharla did an amazing job of showing us how easy and natural the conversations can be!
As a result of having a lot of Heart Selling Conversations in the past 3 months, my first ever VIP Successful Speaker Master Class is now 75% full! This is a 6 month program at $3000. It is a very hands on, in person program, and participants walk away with their very own 10, 15 and 30 minute speeches created, practiced, delivered and filmed!
While I was making money with my private clients and workshops, the money I’m making from this one VIP course is really setting me on the path to meet my financial goal!
On top of this, experiencing the breakthrough transformations Jessie and Sharla provide has enabled me to help people at a much deeper level than before I started their programs. What a truly valuable gift!"
“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!”
“After Client Attraction Mastery I’ve booked my first vacation in 3 years – for a month!!!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was frustrated and overwhelmed with the amount of demands on me as a single woman business owner, struggling to make a living.
I was seeing an average of 4 clients per month besides my part time teaching contract and was barely making enough to cover the bills. I felt emotionally exhausted and was heading for financial bankruptcy. I signed up to their program as a final attempt to avoid the inevitable.
During the Client Attraction Mastery programs, I was able to get off taking it all so seriously. It helped to know that I was not alone in this and joined the suggested game using the scripts and templates for 21 days full out.
As a result I overcame my resistance, gained courage and confidence to connect with people without attachment. I was offered speaking opportunities in and outside the country, including free accommodation, food and transportation- miraculously. I made new connections and found clients signing up effortlessly and feeling ok about those who didn't.
I now have renewed energy and enthusiasm and a bright future ahead. I have booked my first vacation in 3 years to get away for an entire month over the Christmas holidays. ”

“From a sales slump to almost $20,000 in 8 days!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I had many business successes but recognized that something wasn’t working.
My results were inconsistent and I couldn’t see what I was doing wrong.
In the Client Attraction Mastery program, I learned how to systematize my selling in a way that felt good to me. I also recognized that there was an element in the sales process that I struggled with and without it, my potential clients weren’t given an opportunity to say “yes”.
As a result of completing the program, I not only walked away with new tools, but I was able to transition from a sales slump to almost $20,000 with just 8 days of work in the 1st month!”
Lisa Marie Platske
“I went from $35,000 a year to $12,250 a month!”
“Before working with Thrive Academy, I was seeing on average 12 clients/week. The most I had earned in one year was $35,000. I knew what I offered--permanent, holistic allergy elimination-- was valuable, yet I struggled with what to charge and how to talk about what I do. I felt discouraged and somewhat hopeless that my work eliminating allergies would develop beyond hobby status.
Through the Thrive Academy training programs I learned how to confidently, attractively position myself. I doubled my practice immediately in 2012 and each year my income has significantly increased.
I’m most proud of the Speaker training I did with Thrive because I went from choosing to be the “invisible woman” to shining on stage, speaking to several hundred women at the WOW Women’s Conference. Not only did I widen my reach with that one speaking gig, I also discovered I love to speak!
We’ve closed out our best year so far and celebrated our first $12,250 month in July.
I’m so grateful to Jesse, Sharla and the Thrive community!”

“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 made back double my investment within the first 3 weeks.”
Before working with Jesse and Sharla. I was pretty sick of doing “just fine.” I had taken tons of courses and paid lots of money without seeing my investments multiply.
This program worked better than I had expected. I made back double my investment within the first 3 weeks It was fast growth. Once you give up your own fear of lack and begin using the questions they give you in their template, you’re unstoppable.
After my success with my 1st business, something strange happened. I realized that my profession of Corrective Exercise Therapy was not my calling. Within 2 months I quit my whole practice.
Even when I changed my niche to Sex and Intimacy Coaching, I was able to use the program materials to pick up 15 clients in one month. Some months I have a waiting list. I did it all with Heartselling and coming from a place of service. No website. No business cards.
Now I’m on track for six figures. I work 3-4 days a week, 3 weeks a month. My partner and I just signed a contract on a gorgeous condo in New York City and on our time off we like to travel. We spent last New Years in England, Brugges, and Paris. We go skiing each winter and just got back from 2 weeks in Hawaii. We’ll be going back to England, Croatia, and Italy for 3 weeks this September.
I love my life. I can’t thank Jesse and Sharla enough for their help.
“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 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!
“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!!"
“I work less than ever and consistently make $8,000 - $10,000 a month”
“Before coming to Thrive I was trying to get started as a life coach and felt like I was spinning my wheels…getting nowhere. I was a highly successful fitness trainer for 25 years but I really wanted to get off my feet and build a life coaching practice. I was stuck and did not know what to do. The bulk of my $60,000 a year income was coming from personal training and I could not get the coaching practice off the ground. It was very frustrating because I had just spent $10,000 and 12 months getting certified, and I am a great coach, but I couldn’t get it going.
At the Summit I saw a vision for myself. Not just getting life coaching clients, but creating a leveraged business that would let me help more people, get off my feet and have way more freedom in my life. You see I was 51 and I realized I just didn’t want to work hard anymore.
As I went through all the programs, I just kept looking for my sweet spot. How I could find the words and get myself out there so “my people” could find me. In Leverage I had a breakthrough as I discovered my signature system and so it became effortless to talk about what I do to a potential client, especially using the free consult template from Mastery. One of the unexpected results of finding my niche, finally, and really owning it is now I am known as the knee pain expert. Speaker gave me the confidence and again the templates to make compelling offers on free teleclasses. With all the learning and background from the group programs my success skyrocketed when I did a VIP day with Sharla and Jesse.
Since taking action on the strategies that Sharla designed for me personally in my VIP Day, my coaching practice is full and wait listed. I work less hours than I ever have and I consistently make $8,000-$10,000 every month for almost a year now. I am rested, happy and my bank account is full.”

“I've been at SIX FIGURES for 22 months straight now since I started training at Thrive!”
"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 have been at six figures for 22 months straight now since I started training at Thrive! 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!"

“I went from earning $20,000 a year to earning $20,000 a month!!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla,I was the founder and operator of a gift-based healing center. As much as I loved this innovative model I was guided by my intuition to convert to a cash-based Naturopathic healing practice. Within a week of saying “Yes!” to my intuition, I was gifted a ticket to Jesse and Sharla’s Thrive Client Attraction Summit.
One of the first things I got from the weekend was finding a niche. This was hard for me because I thought I already had a niche—I was a Naturopathic Doctor for god’s sake. But I remember that every time Jesse said the word ‘niche’ what popped in my head was “fertility” which made absolutely no sense to me since I didn’t feel like I was an expert in that arena. Serendipity would have it though, that during the week after the program I was approached by several people who asked if I would help them with their fertility issues. I said I would get back to them… and I sat down and made a map of all the things that I’m trained and can help with and how those things connected to fertility. To my disbelief, tears streaming down my face, I realized I was the PERFECT person to help people with their fertility challenges, and that the field was exciting enough to keep me on my toes. So, I landed on my niche by the time I took Thrive’s Client Attraction Mastery Program where I began to really master the heartselling conversations and have applied them to my practice successfully. I have about a 95% conversion rate from a heartselling conversation to client!
As a result of Thrive Academy’s programs I went from making $20,000 a year running my non-profit to making $20,000 in one month and had the best time ever serving a group of people I absolutely love and adore; I have changed my beliefs around money and abundance; I have more confidence to do the work I’m meant to be doing in the world and I have found the group of people that I absolutely love working with – my niche of fertility allows me to work with couples that are struggling to start a family and support them in getting really tangible results within a short period of time. My Fertility Success program offers the result of conceiving a healthy baby in 3 months which is a very bold offer that I could never conceive of giving prior to Thrive.

“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!"
“I'm no longer feeling burned out…and am feeling excited to grow my business.”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was rather clueless when it came to marketing my business. I also had this tendency to push hard and then burn out, and was in the burned out place with my business. I was so ready to take my business to the next level but just didn't know how to do that without burning out even more.
Through Jesse and Sharla's programs, I learned leveraged marketing strategies so I am more consistent and more effective in my actions! My workshops, group programs and packages are attracting more people than ever before. And the best thing is that I'm no longer feeling burned out - I now have a clear plan of action and am feeling excited to grow my business. I recently made over $10,600 in one month!
I love this community, too! Thank you so much Jesse and Sharla!”
“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 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 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’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!”

“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!”

“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.”

“I generated $56,000 in new income – in a month!”
“Attending Mastery gave me some amazing resources that I used to transition from an existing business into my new entrepreneurial venture. I used the Heart Selling method along with some of the success skill sets we teach clients in our coaching work to soar and generate $56,000 in new income in my first month.
The level of commitment I set for myself was unwavering and armed with Thrive Academy's templates, it helped me go beyond what I expected. And the result was coming in at FIRST PLACE in the Mastery Game we all played! The accomplishment inspired me so much that I've written a short e-book with my wife, Carol all about what I did to win the game and grow my business to new heights.”
Thank you for the opportunity to improve my skill sets
“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
“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 the first month of the program, I earned $19,600.”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I already had a successful fertility acupuncture practice for 20 years. I found the work very fulfilling, yet I had a strong desire to bring that work to a larger audience. As a clinician seeing patients one-on-one, I was limited to 75 - 80 office visits per week. I joined Thrive Academy to learn how to reach a larger audience by working one-to-many.
"During the Client Attraction Mastery Program, I learned the art of Heartselling, which has given me the foundation to start forming Joint Venture partnerships. This not only supports my current private practice; it's also helping me reach more women and start setting up my business to work one-to-many.
"In the first month of the program, I earned $19,600. And I am just getting started! I still have two additional Thrive Programs to learn from this year, and I am confident that the strategies Jesse and Sharla offer are going to help me fulfill my lifelong commitment of helping as many women as possible achieve their goal of having healthy, happy babies."

“In my first 30 days of the program I earned $10,000...”
“Before Client Attraction Mastery I was earning less than $2000/month and working with 5 clients a week. In my first 30 days of the program I earned $10,000 and helped 10 more people get out of pain. It is wonderful to realize how much of a difference I can make in peoples lives, and how appreciative they are that I can help. With Heartselling, everyone wins. I now make more, work less and enjoy having more time to travel.”
Vondette E. Brinson, AdvCBP, LMT
“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!
“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 made $8,000 in sales in one hour!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was struggling to find a lucrative niche. Although I had run a successful home-based business for 19 years, I was ready to build something new that used more of my skills, creativity, and passion for justice. While I had exciting ideas, I felt hopeless about ever being paid well for my expertise.
In Client Attraction Mastery I figured out a lucrative niche! I was shocked that I actually tripled my income in the 90 days. And in my first workshop following the system I learned in 6-Figure Speaker, I made $8,000 in sales in one hour! That was more than I’d ever made in a month.
Thrive taught me to stand in the value of my services, and as a result, my business and reputation continue to grow and strengthen as I support entrepreneurs working for a better world.
The biggest gem I learned in the program is the importance of presenting myself to the world in ways that say, "I take myself seriously and expect you to take me seriously, too!" I'll be forever grateful to Thrive for helping me step into my power, and for the wonderful community we are all creating, which continues to be the source of not only support, but wonderful clients and referrals.”

“I went from losing my ENTIRE savings to earning $10,000 a month doing the spiritual work I love!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I had just lost my ENTIRE savings and business property in a economic-collapse related foreclosure. I was making about $2,000 a month in my “on the side” shamanic healing practice, and that was not enough to support myself and my kids in San Diego.
With the money stress, my health was deteriorating, I was feeling hopeless, and in the midst of all that, I lost my marriage. And you know what? I’m so glad I was desperate. Because that’s what it took for me to get serious -- and get successful!
I set aside my “no debt” policy to invest in my business, and put Jesse and Sharla’s programs on a credit card. I’d spent well over $100K on college at Stanford, and $65K on law school, and yet (at a time I really “couldn’t afford it”) I needed to pay these guys to teach me how to do business. It was humbling. And it was one of my best decisions ever.
After Client Attraction Mastery, I easily doubled my practice, doing HeartSelling Conversations. I relaxed into knowing that I now had the tools to literally control how many one-on-one clients I had.
Now, I make over $10,000 a month, and I love traveling in my RV whenever I want, living in my beach cottage in San Diego, and shopping stress free.
I love making money helping other spiritual entrepreneurs have real impact. And my favorite thing is reading the thank you notes that roll in daily from my clients! I get so excited by this, because I know in my heart that we spiritually-inspired entrepreneurs are the ones who can change this world, if only our messages and teachings can get OUT there, and if only we can stay resourced by getting paid and respected enough.
Jesse and Sharla modeled this truth for me. I know we are changing the world. And that is the biggest paycheck I could ever hope for.”
The Spiritual Entrepreneur’s Mentor
“Now I know how to sell my paintings without being quiet OR pushy!”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla I was ready to throw in the towel on my art business. While I had experienced considerable success in the 80's and 90's as a professional artist, in the last 7-8 years I hit a wall, felt hopeless in business, and blamed the economy. So I was feeling rather cynical and sorry for myself at the [Summit]!
And I'm so glad I signed up for more support! Through their programs I learned so much about how to sell from a place of service. I had always been afraid of being pushy (especially since I can be so enthusiastic) and ended up being quiet and demure with sales! Now I know how to sell my paintings without being quiet OR pushy!
I also learned how powerful it is to be able to stand in the "tension" of a sale. I used to always make a joke and that would cost me the YES! Now I am clear, present to my customer's needs, upfront with my prices, and proudly envision and await a "yes" to my offers.
Within the first two months following the [Six Figure Speaker] program I earned $21,500 through sales and commissions of my art! My earnings this year alone have shot through the roof and are due to be more than triple the last three years combined!
I am so grateful for all the support I have gained from Jesse and Sharla and this community. THANK YOU!"
“I more than doubled my income… my best months to date brought in over $11,000 in sales!!”
“Before Thrive, I loved helping my clients gain confidence and transform their beliefs to have a more relaxed, healthy, and financially abundant lifestyle. The best results were achieved with clients who worked with me for at least 6 months, even though I was only charging month-to-month. I was too scared to ask for a six-month commitment up front. As a result, many of my clients weren’t receiving the full potential of what they were capable of, and my monthly income was maddeningly erratic.
“I'd have good months and bad months, but never know what to expect. At its worst, I stretched the limits of my credit cards and dipped into my retirement account when my income lagged during slower months.
“During Client Attraction Mastery, I became clear about what I was already doing well and I learned to stand more in my value. More importantly, I began to see that I hadn’t been standing up for my clients by not offering a 6-month commitment. With my new confidence, and the motivation to reach out to even more people, I was totally surprised by what I found: when given the option my potential clients happily purchased the longer commitment, knowing they wanted my support and expertise for an extended period of time.
“As a result of this discovery I have more than doubled my income, build a more consistent flow of revenue, and now have a waiting list of clients. All of this came about without ONE change in technology or other investment in marketing. I recently had two of my best months ever with over $11,000 in sales in each month. Thank you Jesse and Sharla! The coaching and skills you have given me are priceless!”
Professional & Personal Growth Consulting
“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 made $25,000 in 3 months!”
Before I started with Thrive Academy I was still struggling to make consistently high income every month and was having a hard time selling my high-end coaching programs in my new niche of marketing & mindset coaching for coaches, holistic practitioners, and other service-based business owners.
During the programs I learned their signature system of “Heartselling,” which allowed me to feel more confident and powerful during my free business strategy calls with potential clients and effectively move them through their fears and concerns that kept them from saying “yes” to the programs I offered that I knew would help them solve their business challenges.
Thanks to what I’ve learned in the Client Attraction Mastery program, and the amazing community of support from other Thrive Academy students (our “Thrive tribe”), I made $25k in 3 months! That’s as much as I used to struggle to make in a year when I first started my business!
I’ve also raised my rates, taken on more business clients, consistently earn double my former monthly income, and have had several 5-figure months. I’m still pinching myself!
I’m on track to have another year of growth and surpass my previous income ceiling by at least 20%. And thanks to their “Get Leverage” program, I’m launching my first home study and group coaching programs—something I’ve been wanting to do for 2 years.
Marketing, Mindset & Manifesting
“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!”

Cat J. Zavis
“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!”

“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 Generated $40k+ In New Business In Six Months!”
Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was taking a shotgun approach to my business. Trial and error was my mantra and it gave me a wide spectrum of results. The lack of consistency was putting me on a fast path to burnout as I was spinning my wheels in areas that I realized were not contributing to the growth of my business.
From going through the Six Figure Speaker and Client Attraction Mastery programs, the templates helped me to finally create the consistency that I could count on in my business to have the stability that no other JOB could create.
I now consistently convert anywhere from 20% - 40% whenever I do a speaking engagement and private coaching clients and referrals come even easier than before.
This has translated to over $40k in new business that can be directly attributed to Thrive impacted activities…in just 6 months since the summit!
The even greater value is the business community that Jesse and Sharla have cultivated. I now belong to a loving and supportive group that has now become, in some ways, a family closer than the one I was born into!
My prices have increased, and I must say…the future looks bright, I gotta wear shades. Thanks, Jesse and Sharla!
Wei Houng – Six Figure Coach
“We brought in over $562,000 the month after I started this program.”
"Before working with Jesse & Sharla, I felt burned out and discouraged when month after month I wasn't meeting my financial goals. It got to the point where I just completely stopped tracking our numbers when I was unable to fill our schedule to capacity.
"During the Client Attraction Mastery Program, I learned that tracking my business numbers was KEY to our success. I felt so relieved having the templates and learning Heartselling. This program helped clear my mind so that I could prioritize and take my practice to the next level. Finally, I was excited to be at work once again!
"In the middle of the first quarter (after planning two seminars and Heartselling to many new patients), I tallied our numbers and was so excited to see that we're on track to reach our financial goals! We brought in over $562,000 (our best month so far) the month after I started this program. And we plan to gift our team members with a bonus, too, something we have not done in years. I am so excited to see what this year will bring utilizing all of the skills I learned. I now look forward to every conversation with a potential client!"

“I’m going on a 3 week vacation in Hawaii...”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I had a small somatic coaching practice but lots of big dreams. I knew I wanted to reach a lot more people and offer programs, but with a small list and limited network I didn't know how to even start. I was working lots of hours making very little money.
“Through the Thrive programs I got insights, tools and a vision of what was possible. I connected with amazing people, and being part of the community opened partnerships and friendships with people who supported me to play a much bigger game. I finally learned how to talk about what I do in an inspiring way, and got templates for selling from my heart to a group. Jesse and Sharla were the wind behind my back, encouraging me to speak and lead weekend workshops for myself.
“And it’s all paid off! I just launched my first six-month group program, making over $20,000 by offering the deep emotional healing work that I love. I am now comfortable having conversations with clients about $3,000 or $5,000 investments, knowing that it's totally worth it for the value they get. This summer I'm going on a 3 week vacation in Hawaii, with full trust that my business will continue to thrive while I relax.
“Most of all, I am so happy to help more people discover their authentic, empowered, loving self. I am transforming people's lives and hearts the way I have always dreamed of. And in my best month so far I made $23,732 in sales. I am so grateful to the Thrive Community for helping me share my gifts with the world!”
“I doubled my prices and actually doubled enrollment!”
"Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I struggled to get enough students to fill a class. I was tired of under-charging for private clients, and overworking as a therapist, healer, teacher, administrator, bookkeeper and marketer. I loved all my roles but was wearing so many hats, I was exhausted. I was teetering financially.
At the Client Attraction Summit I took a leap of faith and invested in the Six Figure Speaker Program. Through that program I finally understood why people weren't signing up for my classes, and more importantly, how to communicate the value so they would sign up. And once I put this understanding into action, they did sign up!
I also hired a few key people to join my team so I could focus in on what I do best, and end the cycle of exhaustion. I also stopped under-charging myself. I doubled my prices and actually doubled enrollment! Our monthly revenue had doubled from about $5,000 to $10,000 per month. Now our classes are filled, and students are committing to year long certification training programs with us.
My staff and students are required to read, "The Art of Client Attraction," and attend the Client Attraction Summit before they graduate so they can learn to market themselves and have a practice they can enter into soon after they graduate.
I can't thank Jesse and Sharla enough for their brilliant guidance in helping hundreds and thousands of people bring their healing gifts to the world!"
Laura Fine, Director, Lionheart Institute of Transpersonal Energy Healing
“In the first 2 months of the Thrive programs I earned $57,000...”
“When I started my practice 7 years ago, I felt like my business was more of a hobby. I couldn't seem to figure out how to attract clients, even though I was doing some really amazing work. I was afraid that I was going to have to go "get a job" because no matter what strategy I tried, I couldn't get any traction.
“Through the programs with Jesse and Sharla, I refined how I talk about what I do, and learned how to speak with greater power and clarity. Attracting clients is no longer a problem. I now have clients seeking me out! I'm also standing more in the value of what I offer, and have increased my rates - and my clients are excited to pay this (and they feel like they're getting a great deal!).
“I've now shifted my focus to doing group programs because I simply don't have time to see any more individual clients. I have a six month waiting list for new clients to work with me individually. In the first 2 months of the Thrive programs I earned $57,000! And to celebrate I bought myself a red Miata!
“Thank you, Jesse and Sharla!”
Scott Mills, Ph.D.
“3 months after Client Attraction Mastery I had my first $10,000 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 $10,000 month!”

“I have tripled my business and am having a greater impact.”
“Although I had a successful business before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was starting over on the West Coast and struggling to promote myself. I had all these limiting beliefs about “selling” that held me back.
“Through their programs, I learned how to promote my work in a heart-felt way that helped me overcome my limiting beliefs about selling. I also discovered new ways for reaching more people, which has helped me move from working with clients one-on-one to offering programs and doing speaking engagements.
“Since doing their programs, I have tripled my business and am having a greater impact. My best month so far has been $10,050. And I have gained a beautiful community of friends and colleagues as well.”
“In the last month of the program, I earned $23,000!”
“Before participating in the Thrive Academy programs, I was burning out with my psychotherapy practice. I had been in private practice for over 23 years. My practice had diminished in the last couple of years, yet I wasn’t motivated to do anything to get it going again. I was only earning about $3,000/month.
“Doing the Thrive Programs helped me tap into my inspiration again! I realized that I can build my practice with my IDEAL CLIENTS - people who I ENJOY working with! I feel a growing confidence in knowing that I can work with people who are really motivated to do the in-depth body/mind therapy that I do. I am clearly communicating to clients what I do and what it takes to get the kind of results that they desire. I am asking them to commit to the work they need to do and they are committing to the work more than ever before. They are booking packages now rather than just one session at a time. (And I am NO LONGER working with clients I don’t enjoy, and who are not my ideal clients!)
“I have more than doubled my practice! In the last month of the program, I earned $23,000! Even more important to me is that I now have a practice of only my ideal clients and am inspired and excited about the work that I am doing, and the people I am working with.”
Lillian Kelly, M.A., R.C.C.
“I am having a blast, knowing that I’m making a huge impact on my clients...!”
“Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was struggling to keep my image consulting business afloat. I knew I was making a big difference for the few clients I had, but I didn’t have the tools or confidence to grow my business. I ended up taking on a part-time job just to make ends meet. I was discouraged and depleted.
“So when a friend of mine told me about the Client Attraction Summit, I decided to go. I was so blown away by Jesse and Sharla’s enthusiasm, success stories, and amazing content, I couldn’t ignore that burning sensation in my core propelling me to sign up for their programs!
“In the Client Attraction Mastery Program, the breakthroughs I had, coupled with the templates they provided, gave me what I needed to more than double my practice. And it was the Six Figure Speaker program that really took me - and my business - to the next level. After that program I was finally able to quit my part-time job. I moved to LA (a dream of mine!) yet still return to Minneapolis to do work with clients. My biggest sales month so far has been $13,000 and I am definitely on my way to six figures!
“Through it all, I am having a blast, knowing that I’m making a huge impact on my clients’ lives as I help them discover their authentic style and feel confident in all their interactions, both personally and professionally. I know I would not be where I am today had I not taken that bold leap of faith and signed up for Jesse and Sharla’s programs.”
“From $1,500 a month to $12,000 in 3 weeks!”
“ Before working with Jesse and Sharla, I was earning around $1,500 per month and having no business model whatsoever. I wanted to serve, but either felt really pushy or like a total pushover during sales.
In taking Client Attraction Mastery, I learned the 5 elements of Heartselling and the result was I earned over $12,000 in 3 weeks. My whole life changed. I joined Platinum and Lifetime shortly afterwards, was placed in the Top 10 for Six Figure Speaker and won the Money Game when I repeated Client Attraction Mastery.
I feel deeply aligned with my purpose and grateful to be having consistent 5-figure months by helping coaches to discover their niche, create their packages, and dramatically increase their income.
Thank you SO MUCH Jesse and Sharla for your mentorship and the community you've created.”
“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!

“I earned $10,000 in 3 weeks!”
“Although I had gone through a lot of business programs before meeting Jesse and Sharla, I still wasn't having the results (and making the money) I wanted. I started to get nervous about how much more money I'd have to invest in my business before I'd get a return. I even got insecure at times and questioned what was wrong with me. I had the "right information, the right mindset and the right attitude" to have a successful business, yet no matter how many of the right pieces I had in place, I was frustrated that all my hard work wasn’t paying off.
“And then I did the Client Attraction Mastery program, and when I followed their Heartselling system, I earned $10,000 in 3 weeks! Jesse and Sharla are masters of the art of selling. They taught me their simple step-by-step process (which involves TEMPLATES!) and as a result, I made more money than I ever had before in such a short period of time.
“It was simple. It was authentic. It didn't feel pushy or fake and it wasn't rocket science. All I had to do was follow their templates and BAM...I made MORE money! Just like that!! Thank you, Jesse and Sharla! Now that I've added your magic to my mix, I've become a powerhouse!”
Big thanks and deep bow,
