“Shining Life Coaching’s 6-week Dating Bootcamp was so helpful in giving me the motivation and the tools to get back online after a long hiatus. I greatly valued the camaraderie and support of the other women in the group–we helped each other without judgment and with humor, making the process of preparing to post on dating sites easy and, yes, fun! I also greatly appreciated Bernadette’s extremely positive outlook throughout the entire workshop, as well as her great tips on maintaining safety. I highly recommend her workshop to anyone who knew to, or returning to, online dating–it truly helps to have the structure and support she offers.”

“My greatest challenge was writing a profile and moving forward with getting on a site. I was insecure about what to write and how to present myself in a way that would attract responses. The best part about working with Shining Life Coaching was that Bernadette made something I was uneasy about fun and comfortable. I am more confident about going on the sites. My profile has had many responses. Just awaiting the response that will be the right one!”

“I want to thank Bernadette for all her help in coaching me during this new adventure of mine. It’s been so long since I went on a date (41 years to be exact), and since then everything has changed. I feel that I have a better grasp now about what to expect and how to navigate my way through. It was so easy to work with Bernadette, and the advice she gave was invaluable. She made me feel like I was talking to a good friend.”

“My biggest obstacle to dating had been my emotional stance of having too much desperation that was seeping through into my communications. Each “likely suspect” became a focus of too much hopeful anticipation. Working with Shining Life Coaching, I learned the mantra of “don’t take it personally.” That was so helpful, and I continue to hear it ringing in my mind. Bernadette also brings a her strong marketing talents to bear on my choice of words in my online communications to prospects. She was able to point out when my choice of words conveyed negativity or neediness. A good editor is a valuable thing!”

“I look forward to her continued guidance…I know she’ll bring sharp insight, humor and judgment to help me craft a profile that’s both attention-getting and well focused.”
