Drs Glenn and Sharon Livingston (our founders) have sold over $20,000,000 in consulting services to major brands like the ones above.  Glenn has worked with over 1,000 coaching clients and directly  supervised many coaches and psychotherapists. (And Sharon has worked with over 60,000 people in a group format!)  The Livingston's previous work and theories have also appeared in dozens of major media like those listed above.

Dr. Glenn Livingston is the son of two therapists in a family of 20 psychologists, social workers, counselors, and therapists.  The "helping business" was literally in his blood from birth...

Shortly after getting his Ph.D. (from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology on the Einstein Medical Campus in New York City)  Dr. Livingston built a 65 person practice in approximately eighteen months.  When people's symptoms resolved, he invited them into his coaching practice until, five years later, he was working almost entirely as a coach. Glenn generated more than 1,000 referrals and/or new client calls, and also directly supervised many coaches and therapists...

But because he doesn't have children, thoroughly enjoys his work, and has never had to commute, he launched a second career as a consultant.  His specialty at the time was helping large companies evaluate psychological response to advertising, which is where he originally developed his business expertise... 

Along with his wife he also offered team building workshops, creative ideation sessions, and name development...which were arguably some of the most expensive coaching services ever sold.  (In one of them, he and Sharon were responsible for leading an executive team to develop the name "Nextel" in a single weekend.  That organization became a billion dollar conglomerate)... 

Their companies eventually sold more than $30,000,000 to clients like AT&T, Lipton, Panasonic, Whirpool, Nabisco, Colgate-Palmolive, W.L. Gore, Bausch & Lomb, Citibank, American Express, Hallmark, Hunt Wesson, J & J, General Mills, Ford Motor Company, Novartis, Astra Zeneca, Exxon, and many more. 

And along the way their work, theories, and research into human relations and consumer motivation were covered in places like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, the NY Daily News, Crain's NY Business, The Milwaukee Business Journal, The Indiana Star Ledger, American Demographics, and many, many more...

But here's where Dr. Livingston's business history can really help you in selecting the right niche...

In 2003 he got fed up with working for large organizations, fired all his corporate clients, and quietly tested the methods he'd developed doing millions of dollars of high end consulting to see if they'd work on small, untapped niches...

Dr. Livingston actually sold $250,000 worth of electronic downloads in psychologically driven niche markets like body language, pet care, games for the elderly, etc., before moving to coaching markets like "Emotional Eating."  He subsequently began teaching these methods, and launched an internet advertising agency which quickly grew to 21 people.

(DISCLAIMER: It's unlikely you'll achieve the same explosive growth because Dr. Livingston had a lifetime of marketing experience behind him when he started, as well as a unique set of resources to draw upon.  But you WILL get the full force of his knowledge and experience...a powerful combination it's extremely difficult to find in any other certification program.  See full disclosure and terms of use agreement before purchase please)

Glenn has many other accomplishments (including running a routinely sold out, high end coaching practice of his own), but for our purposes today what's most important is you realize while other programs SAY they can help you choose a niche and market your practice, we have a well thought out, organized system which has been tested and proven in the trenches...

Dr. Sharon Livingston earned her Ph.D. in the mid 90s based upon predictive research into facial picture sorting.  She's since become one of the world's foremost specialists in consumer psychology, group techniques, and finding the "Emotionally Unique Selling Proposition" for any market.  Sharon's the woman many billion dollar companies bring in to find out what's deep inside their prospects' heads, often before an idea for a product or service even exists.  She's personally interviewed over 60,000 consumers (a real number) about their emotional response to advertising, and her client list reads like a list of the Fortune 500:

"My expectations were exceeded. I was impressed by both the character and competence of Dr. Livingston. Her ability to draw people out in unique and creative ways and apply the gathered data to complicated analyses made my experience working with her a memorable and fun one!" -Stephen R. Covey
