We are celebrating more than 30 years of success in the personal and   professional development training field!  Here are just a few comments from some of our clients!



Barbie has been motivating and inspiring others to develop their leadership skills, unlock their personal power, and gain the self-confidence needed to reach their full potential for more than a decade. Barbie and I met during my tenure in local government. During that time we were part of the team that created the Economic Empowerment Program of which Barbie was responsible for providing self esteem development and employability skills to individuals in U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funded public service programs. The program received a Best Practice Award from HUD and the participants gave Barbie high accolades. Additionally, Barbie provided team building training for my department. The training was creative, dynamic, and motivating and employee morale and collaboration improved after they attended. Many of the staff and I continued to discussion Barbie's techniques, with excitement, long after the workshop was over. From my experience, Barbie has a passion for empowering others and a sincere desire to help others achieve success. Her presentations were inspiring, edifying, enjoyable, and presented in a professional and practical manner. Her message of realizing your own self-worth, creating a vision of success, and personal empowerment is enlightening. I highly recommend Barbie's development opportunities to virtually any group.

 "The Inspiration"


Written about Mrs. Barbie K. Reed by Kiara H. 17 years old


She walks with elegance. The click of her heels says that she's a phenomenal woman.


She talks with grace. She speaks with a sense of accuracy, with every word being nothing but the truth. When she smiles, it seems as though there is some place higher than the heavens.


Her head is never down, above the mountains is where it always stood. Listen to her, the answer to life's questions are at the tip of her tongue. Her demeanor is one of a queen who is giving her blessings to anyone in want. She is the national anthem for us women. She lets me know that I can make it. She gives me to the tools that say I will.


The melody of her voice is like a peaceful aria that says there's hope. And guess what? It's priceless. She is my angel who has given me her spare wings. For that I want to say thank you. You have touched me in a way you can't even imagine. YOU ARE THE Inspiration!"
