"I've known Johnny for over two years, having first met him as a guest on his FMMK Talk Radio show, where he interviewed me and asked questions about my novel "The Collectibles". One of Johnny’s questions was What is your recipe for living? As we talked for an hour, and then another, I was fascinated by the depth and understanding in Johnny’s approach, and deeply moved by his interest in other people, and more importantly, how he could see and bring out the best in them. As founder of From My Mama's Kitchen, and author of the award winning book of the same title, Johnny explores a subject to which he is fully committed: Unconditional Love. I’ve watched him address audiences and seen the expression on their faces as he conveys his wisdom and reaches their hearts. As well as an accomplished author and talk radio show host, Johnny is an accomplished motivational speaker with an amazing business background, committed to using his keen organizational and leadership skills to make the lives of others better."

When I found out Johnny coaches individuals on personal and professional matters, I decided to engage his expertise. He provided me with a customized action plan that helped me regain a fresh perspective about myself. This renewed confidence gave me the strength to tap into my natural leadership tendencies.
