"I highly recommend Jeff Smith and Alisa Sattler – the amazing team behind Raising My Game. The professionalism and passion for what they do is second to none. Thanks to their coaching my overall levels of health, wealth, relationships, and business have increased dramatically. I don’t know exactly what is in their secret sauce, but after 6 months of working together I have a new sense of wellbeing in my life. Their strategies, exercises and wholistic approach have given me the tools to be a better me, and lessons that will guide me for a lifetime. I have to say that working with Jeff and Alisa has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to learn from them."
“Game-changing” and “transformational” are two terms I would use to summarize my experience. I engaged in coaching after many successful years of my career and am amazed at how much this has helped me to raise my game! Thankfully, my coaching engagement also came at a time when I was entering into one of the most toxic work environments of my entire career. Not only did this help to improve my healthy relationships, it also helped me to navigate the very rough waters and emerge even stronger, and better than I was before. I remind myself daily how thankful I am to have met Jeff and consider him not only a colleague but a friend. It is super exciting to see what Jeff and Alisa are doing and I want to thank you both for your continued support and guidance!"
