Through Paradigm Shift - LifeCoaching, I've learned that not only is adulthood complex but also it is not given; Adulthood is achieved. In order to achieve adulthood it takes great work ethic, consistency,determination, and gre​​a​​t planning. My Life coach taught me the importance of networking, budg​eting, building upon my resume, and​ a​l​so planning for the future (short and long term). Everyone should have goals, and along with those goals should come great planning because a goal without a plan is a wish. And I thank my life coach (Mr. Leak) for each lesson.

Garvis is a tremendous motivator. He taught a values-based workshop for my church youth group. His riveting discussion touched on the importance of godly living and how to become a better young man. The young men gained significant insight and were inspired to become better. Garvis is an outstanding lifecoach!

Several years ago the youngmen at Rosa Parks PreK-8 School; a part of the Dayton Public School district were introduced to a wonderful program sponsored by Mr. Garvis Leak. This outstanding program was entitled "Boys 2 Men". Weekly, Mr. Leak along with other dedicated men would meet with the middle school youngmen to discuss life skills. I can recall one workshop activity where the students were so actively engaged. The workshop focused on teaching the youngmen how to tie a necktie. The students were so proud to learn the skill that they set aside every Friday as shirt and tie day. Thank you Mr. Leak, for providing a wonderful opportunity for the future of tomorrow.

Garvis is amazing with his approach. He is people friendly, compassionate, dedicated to looking into various resources to help best connect with client needs. He has given me a wealth of knowledge far as insight with the spiritual and business aspects. Teaching me the importance of being able to have the right foundation to build off of in order to be successful. Mr.Leak has gotten in my face and has been stern a few times so I can stay focused on the plan we developed. I am truly glad to have him as a mentor and friend. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't be where I am.

I searched the Dave Ramsey site and requested i be contacted by a Coch. XSeveral Coaches contacted me but Coach Garvis had the attitude, confidence I was looking for. My goal was to find a qualified and compassionate individual to work with my granddaughter and her spouse. Coach Garvis worked with them, one on one, for several 1 1/2 hour meetings. Following that they enrolled in FPU. They are now well on their way to developing life habits that will impact not only them but their two young children. Coach Garvis also met with them after FPU classes to re-emphasize the lessons. I can only thank God that I found Garvis. He has been a Godsend for my family . Thanks Garvis for all you have done and continue to dop.
