Join with the hundreds of thousands of “Journey” graduates who declare, “This is the best, most valuable two days of education I’ve ever received. It is life changing and career-building!”


    “Your ‘Journey’ is absolutely incredible. I used your affirmation techniques to leave a very comfortable role and take on a new position — where I turned a group into the most effective and productive sales team in the company. I achieved a great deal more work-life balance, have deepened my spiritual life, and have a new and clearer vision for my future. I learned it all from your program.”

    – Stuart Gray
    President, 4Remarkable Service

    “Your ‘Journey’ made a tremendous difference in my life. I learned how to deal with stress so I’m happier, more productive, and better received by my coworkers. I learned how to achieve my goals, once and for all. So I went back to school, started exercising, and lost 25 pounds. I dramatically improved the way I listen to my staff and my peers, and my attitude has certainly improved!”

    – Sheile Fitzgerald
    Supervisor, Department of the Treasury

    “Your BELIEF system for bringing out the best in others was brilliant … especially your section on how to ensure the follow-through of others. Now we’re in the process of bringing your ‘Journey’ to all of our people here in the U.K.”

    – Dave Hirst
    Audit Manager, HBOS

    “Your ‘Journey’ was unlike any other program I have ever attended. When those programs were over, we put our notebooks on the shelf and never opened them again. But at the end of your ‘Journey,’ you gave each of us a reinforcement program to keep the lessons in the forefront of our minds, and you made sure we stayed on track and used what we learned. Thanks!!!”

    – Kathy Welte
    Director, National Marrow Donor Program

    “What would I change in the ‘Journey’? Nothing. You have made the greatest impact on my life of any public speaker. This program is terrific!”

    – Carolyn Krumrey
    Chief, NASA

    “My wife Laura pushed me to attend Dr. Zimmerman’s ‘Journey to the Extraordinary’ experience even though I was skeptical. Thank God she did!
