When I first met Jude I told her that it was my desire that one day she would see herself through my eyes.  I then had the pleasure of watching her fully embrace her own journey of awakening as she moved from being one of my apprentices, to being my events coordinator, to now being a force in her own right as she powerfully and compassionately leads others to following dreams of their own.  It is obvious that my original desire has been met, for Jude has only to look at the many lives she has touched to see herself as I saw her way back when.
Bill Bartmann, Billionaire Business Coach

Over the 15 years that I have known Jude Smith, she has consistently demonstrated her commitment to excellence, and her commitment to sharing that excellence with others, both within the walls of her classroom and beyond.  For not only has Jude been an outstanding classroom educator, but she has shared her warmth and her enthusiasm for learning through workshops she’s created and led for fellow educators.  Jude’s gift is her ability to see excellence in others, and her skill in inspiring others to see that excellence within themselves.
Dr. L. Edward Lynn, Associate Superintendent – Arlington Central School District

Jude is a pillar of strength and fortitude.  She is a force to be reckoned with - a force of grace, service, and unconditional love.  Jude has touched me, moved me, and inspired me to be authentic.  She is an amazing woman who went from inspiring fourth graders to inspiring all of us to play, live, and see life as children do.
Jeff Brodie, CEO - Codefusion Communications Inc.

When I first heard Jude Smith present heartfelt, timely, and motivational thoughts, I was deeply touched by her honest concern for others and her ability to move an audience.  I was part of a large audience the first time I heard Jude, yet I felt she was speaking directly to me, filling me with a keen desire to be a better person.  Jude is skillfully capable of binding together the hearts of an audience to the greatest of all commissions - loving and serving others.
Harrison Tyner, Publisher - HTI Music

Jude has the gifts of courage, love, compassion, intelligence, knowledge, respect for the dignity of the human being, empathy, integrity, and deep wisdom.  But most of all, her heart is a safe place to land in.
Ruth Lightner

Jude has her own style and powerful manner.  She moves audiences and gets them excited.  I feel her love and her connection to people whenever I hear her speak.  She comes from authenticity.
Sri Kudaravalli

I know God places people in our lives, that once you connect with them, there is just a knowing that this person is special.  I feel that way with Jude.  Thank you, Jude, for providing a safe place to test my wings!
Sunny Burgher

I would hope that others would take one of Jude's courses and be able to let go and find that child inside.  It's invaluable.  This course validated me - and reminded me that I have something to offer.
Kit Cowan

Jude is very skillful in helping people overcome their fears and their resistance to participating.  I enjoyed her course and found it freeing and thought provoking.
Peggy Hansen

Jude's course helped me to look inward and reflect on where I was and how far I have come, and the possibilities there are to do or become anything I desire.
Roseann Strouth

Jude is a very engaging speaker - very motivational and honest.  Her course taught me a lot about myself.  It lifted me up and made me feel good by reminding me of my strengths.
Laura Blaha

My evaluation of Jude's course was that it was excellent.  Her course had great value - teaching participants to step outside of their comfort  zones, so that their power has a chance to shine.  Jude comes across as a light - strong, resonate, and powerful.
