Hello Barbara, I just got into your book and I’m really enjoying it. We have to let people know it will be available. We definitely have similar passions and I want to help you in your endeavor to help others. I’d like for you to be a guest on my show.

What others are saying:

I started reading your “Choices” book tonight. I’ve read 3 other books and reports on goal setting, knowing your vision etc during the last week which is all very familiar material for me. But somehow your book really spoke to me.

I was fighting back tears as I read and made notes. I’m up to about p46 and I’ve got to stop playing small.

Your 5 year vision was amazing, tearfully beautiful and you deserve every bit of it. You are so right. We want to touch other people’s lives and we won’t do it by holding back. But making the dream, the vision, the mission a reality has to be right up there. I really am focusing and concentrating on all of this.

I love your “Meet Yebut” and am very impressed that T Harv Eker wrote the foreword.

What others are saying:

Barbara is that rare breed of person; not only a woman who has a clear vision of where she is going and what she intends to achieve but also one who can clearly implement a plan and bring it to fruition.

Most of us have strengths that make us effective to initiate a project, or run with it for a certain distance, or complete and manage different parts of a project.

Barbara manages all stages and with equal enthusiasm and commitment – this is quite a rare talent. She does not give up when the going gets tough and she ensures that you don’t give up either. This clarity, commitment, tenacity and tidiness are wonderful qualities in a personal life coach and trainer. With Barbara you get the whole team in one person!

What others are saying:

I have to say that working with you has given me great inspiration and confidence. I feel though as I have drifted away from our aim and have a lot of caching up to do! It seems like I haven´t been serious enough since before summer.

The last few months I have been taking on significantly more responsibility within the business throughout Europe. We are at a rapid growth period where every hour is fully used. It is a lot of fun and I am enjoying my new role very much. I give a great deal of credit to your Coaching and Mastermind group as working with you has given me more courage and energy.

Barbara, I know people will get result when they go through that course guided by you.

But when I downloaded your program and began using the membership benefits — I began to see how unique your approach really is!

Finally I have a personal guide who addresses MY QUESTIONS and issues directly. Also you provided encouragement when I needed it most. You’re correct, Barbara, change is work, but with you, the journey has been exhilarating! I have so much more time now that I can spend with my wife Lisa and our kids. They really love the changes in me. Thank you for all of your hands-on help!

What others are saying:

This isn’t about theory. Your system is about doing and achieving.

I think you really want people to get the vision they want for themselves. That’s way you ask us to describe it so vividly – and finally I got it. I am not a victim anymore. Thank you so much.

Summer Resort Seminar

Summer Resort Seminar

What others are saying:

You see how we live, trapped by convention, culture, expectation of others etc.

You don’t live that way, and seem to have done it differently from an early age. From your experiences, you understand why we do what we do, and how we can change our lives by being honest with ourselves about what it is we really want from life, and then working towards achieving that.

I think many self-help books are fluffy. They are written for one purpose – to make money. The people who write them have a holier than thou approach. Not you. You talk to your readers as one of them and actually get us to get up and do it.”

What others are saying:

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful system. Your support along the way really made the difference. It seemed as though, whenever I felt discouraged, an e-mail would appear in my box and get me motivated again. And the feedback from the online conferences was invaluable.

I am in a warm, committed relationship for the first time in years, and working on getting the education I need to become a nurse, a lifelong dream of mine.

What others are saying:

Barbara, I want to thank you for your help in seeing my last relationship with new perspective. Much as I thought he was Mr Right, you helped me to see why he was not and why I have lessons to learn for a better future. Without your insight, I would still be lost instead of which I am positive, hopeful, optimistic, strong, and learning to be on my own and for it to be ok.

I use your daily assessment sheet to see what empowered me, what didn’t and what lessons I can take forward.

Thank you so much. Merry Christmas to a wonderful lady.

Workshop Participant

7 years ago my life changed tremendously, when the world of subtle energy was introduced to me through Sahaja Yoga. I made a first step towards my balance and growth. Many people in our world do not care about this, though, certainly, all of us need it very much! But fortunately, there are such people, who are interested in supporting the others and giving them inspiration to grow and blossom. These realized souls become the sources of immense positive energy, love, joy and balance. You are one of these rare people, Barbara. I wish you all the best in the noble activities, and sincerely hope that the light you have inside you will light thousands of other hearts!

    Everything published made a bunch of sense. But, consider this, suppose you wrote a catchier post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added something to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean Barbara Hofmeister's Media PageTo Be Or Not To Be – The Choice Is YOURS! is a little vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post headlines to get viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

  4. Loving the page and news. Keep it up.
