"Talk Straight Dammit teaches you to take out real estate in space called BLISS"

"Stephen breaks down so many great points as he does so masterfully as an orator, as a  minister and as a teacher. He infuses his colorful language, the ability to not only speak to a story but to show you that story.  Sonji brings in her masterful, strategic, liner thinking of structure and layout to get us from 'A' to 'B' and ultimately to 'Z' which is where we all want to end up, in a place, in that destiny that we call joy."

"What I love about this book is that it allows you to identify, create and navigate a powerful conversation, not only about yourself, but about your family, your career, your relationships, your spirituality, and your money.  This book apologetically says, who you are is so valuable that you can only give yourself the straightest, clearest, most powerful conversation about the man or woman you are becoming."  

--- Lisa Nichols, One of the world's most-requested motivational speakers, 




"I always look forward to our coaching sessions and it is always good talking to you. weekly  Sonji makes me view things more positively and with an attitude to solving whatever I am facing.  I am really grateful.  I know that she is God sent."


  "Your book is a great read with extremely valuable information.  I finished reading it in two days.  Now I am waiting on my husband to read it so that we can share our thoughts. I recommend this book to anyone who is seeking to improve in the area of positive self-talk. The information is so relate-able.

"Stephen can relate to a lot of different circumstances.  He helped me to deal with the craziness in my family and self limiting beliefs.  I learned to find the positive in what I thought was a negative situation. I highly recommend Stephen as a life coach."


"  We all felt your heart, your love for one another, and the passion and purpose in wanting to help people. We really enjoyed our time together. Your book is an encouragement that we the Walks of Life are on right path to clear out the Clutter in order to grow into what God has really designed us all to be. Only God truly knows the issues of our heart and you hit all of our buttons, whether expressed verbally, and through our body language, Your book and workbook challenged us to dig deeper into ourselves to which we discovered negative beliefs, where they came from and how to obtain Bliss. I believe we all will be trying to figure out how to have Alexa speak positive Affirmation to us. That was so Dope!!! We are forever grateful.


  "Wow, this book is amazing. Once I started I couldn't put it down.  One thing I really admired was the honesty and both of your abilities to say it like it is which so reflects the name of the book! I could relate to being so skinny as a kid. For years, I wouldn't dare tell anyone that, now it's like, well maybe others won't feel so alone. That's how your book made me feel.


 "Chapter 6 resonated with me the most! Although I have been spoiling myself, I have also been too hard on myself.  This Chapter reminded me that I am sooo worthy of love.  Additionally, it reminded me to acknowledge and celebrate the many "BOLD" and "Inspiring" decisions I have made during my life! I am ready for Mo' B.L.I.S.S."
