"No one wants to think about their own death and yet we must. The only thing that is true is that we are born and we eventually must leave this world the same way we arrived-empty handed. When I heard that Lesley was an end-of-life coach, I immediately sought out her expertise. I have known her for several years when we worked together for a Fortune 500 Company. Her dedication, knowledge, care, and focus in everything she does made it easy for me to reach out to her for information. We happened to reconnect at a time when I was contemplating planning for my own death due to the sudden loss of friends and family members much younger than myself. Her course opened up my eyes to the variety of options available to choose from for one's final days- from End of Life Awareness and Grief Support, Power of Attorney, for health and finances to type of burials- or not. Her course came in handy as I found this knowledge invaluable when my dad passed away only a couple of months later. Just the same way we plan our lives, we need to plan for our death. It certainly will bring much comfort to know that you will not be caught off guard when your time comes to move onto the hereafter, and it will lessen the grief and stress that
your family will have to deal with."
"I have known Lesley James for a number of years and have found her not only intelligent, but caring friendly and compassionate.
Whatever task she takes on is completed with
passion and knowledge to the best of her ability.
She has attained excellence in whatever position she has worked in over an expanse of 30 years in the work force, and I would not hesitate in recommending her in her new ventures."
"All through my life, from young adult to senior citizen, I have had to make important life decisions that affect not just myself
but spouse, children, parents, etc.
These decisions affected the entire trajectory of my life and those around me.
To have clear instructions in place for the last part of my life
is as valuable and important as any other decision.
I consider this to be my final gift to the people I love.
It will save them the horrible emotional distress of proceeding blindly.
They will KNOW what my wishes are and have a clear path to proceed.
That, more than anything else at this point of my life gives me great peace."
