SUCCESS STORIES

“The biggest thing that I got from AbundantLifeU course is getting FOCUSED, because I was scattered everywhere. I wasn’t going anywhere specific with my acting career, but now I’ve made connections with casting directors, producers and people all over the industry that can really help me move forward.”  – LeRoy Mobley, Actor

“Having the one-on-one coaching (with AbundantLifeU) was the best thing I could have ever done because it truly changed my thought process… by the very last session with Kelvin, I was offered two job opportunities on the same day! God has truly anointed AbundantLifeU…the coaching is like no other because Kelvin and Edwina care about each individual, and they seek to bring out the best in every person they counsel. This is not just a business to them, it’s ministry and it’s evident that they are operating in their purpose.”  – Maya Carpenter, Actress

Working with Kelvin is really fun… The system that AbundantLifeU has created has been really supportive especially as a creative person. Kelvin really took me through a process…going through my SMART goals, making an action plan and getting them all on my calendar... It all sounds very simple but having someone to bounce back and forth with to get organized has been such a gift. I think what AbundantLifeU offers is very special.” – Michelle Barton, Actor and Producer

“The first day that you work with Kelvin, it’s going to be immediate – the results that you see. If you really apply yourself and take the time to invest in you…”

“You know, you don’t want to just be busy, you want to be effective and I feel like AbundantLifeU has really given me the tools to do that.”  – Calvin Winbush, Actor and Musician

“Edwina and Kelvin are great God loving people. They really seem to care about  what they are doing.  They really want to help others accomplish their dreams  and I think that they are doing a great job.”  – Erick Chavarria, Actor

“One the greatest blessings I received from taking the class has been applying the practices to my life…One thing that immediately happened is that I received a job soon after the class….Now I have a steady source of income and I know how to manage my finances…I can honestly say that without the teachings, I probably would have just continued to squander my money or not know where it was going.”  – Ariana Smith, Artist

“My entire life is just jumbled up and I just don’t know where I’m going. Whether its dance or to go workout or whatever. I never really had a set strategy…it was really cool to see real people who have had the same experiences as me and who went through a step-by-step process. I hope that I can take this training and move it forward into my life as I go.”

– Chrisacos, Singer and Songwriter
