    Before going the Art of Charm, my success with developing a relationship were hit or miss. I found The Podcast and started seeing changes and others saw in me too. Nothing can compare to the experience, knowledge and coaching that I had in person. My confidence in social settings is sky high and everyone has taken notice. […]

    I was super hesitant about AoC because it seemed like a big investment. I had done other workshops with other so-called ‘coaches’ and while they were kind of helpful, they didn’t really make any lasting change. However when it came to meeting people and managing relationships, I wasn’t getting anywhere on my own and needed to do something. The AoC bootcamp turned out to be a ton of fun and gave me just what I was looking for. […]

    Signing up for the AoC Bootcamp has been my greatest investment to improve myself and change my life.

    I gained so much confidence in my ability to connect and deepen my relationships with people. It’s amazing how much easier it has been to meet new people and create instant connections. I have the exact same personality, the only thing that has changed is my mindset and a few behaviors. […]

I now really look forward to my nights out and crazy stuff seems to be happening all the time. One thing that really exceeded my expectations on the course was how much fun I had. The coaches were awesome […]

    When I made the decision to attend an AoC program, I didn’t realize I was making a choice that would change my life forever. I am so much more confident in my ability to connect with both men and women. The coaches were amazing! My favorite part about the program was the tailored feedback, I grew by leaps and bounds each day because of the coach and peer feedback I received. […]

    The Art of Charm changed my life–so much so that I (and friends I haven’t seen in months) barely recognize me. I’m still the same person, to be sure, just with lots of new skills and without so many of the fears and insecurities that had been holding me back before I began listening to The Art of Charm Podcast just a few months ago. I had high expectations going in to my boot camp and can honestly say that AOC exceeded them […]
