Rick Grafton // President Grafton Capital Corp

“ I’m crazy at fifty – I’m loving the Courage to Win®. I feel like a kid again. What I enjoy most is the inner confidence. It makes me appreciate who I am and how great life can be. ”

John Janco // Marketing Operations and Project Management at Atrium Innovation

"I discovered my inner confidence again!"
This is an intuitive, wise, tough, kind, and deeply insightful program. It has helped me tremendously in so many aspects of my life. Without this coaching I would doubtless have taken years to make the progress I have in much shorter time. I rediscovered myself at a core level. It challenged me to examine my beliefs and confront my fears. The coaching process helped uncover the stories I had been accepting about myself and dispel the myths that caused self doubt and insecurity that I didn’t even realize I had been harboring.

Paul Burton // Director National Business Development, Great American Art

"The Courage to Win changed my life!"
I graduated from an Ivy League school, got my MBA from Harvard, was successful professionally, but have been aware since my earliest memories that there was an emptiness, a void, that impacted my self worth, and permeated all of my life experiences, in addition to impacting my personal, family and intimate relationships. At 52 I came to Lisa searching for answers and solutions. Lisa carefully guided me into deep self discovery, and stood by me as I reached higher, meaningful levels of self acceptance. I achieved daily and weekly revelations that had true and immediate impact on my life. Lisa changed my life and I am forever grateful that she shared her gifts with me. Choose to work with Lisa and your life can be changed as well.

Timothy Hennig

“I was most impressed with the insight of Live Your Dreams on how the mind works I quickly identified the mental issue that was preventing me from performing at my best. From that point on, it was how to address and defeat that issue. I set goals for myself and tracked how I performed relative to those goals. Perhaps the most impressive thing was, Live Your Dreams taught me how to succeed in all aspects of my life.”

Loraine Bon// Sales Consultant

“ Mental toughness propelled me to set some very high goals and achieve every one of them. The approach to positive AND negative thoughts and emotions helped me move through the obstacles that were standing in the way of what I wanted. ”

ANN PierzchalskiI // Graduate Student

“ I received effective coaching to change a bad situation at work into a better one. I noticed positive changes at work the same day I put the Courage to Win® suggestions into practice. I have never forgotten the lesson I learned -- the advice is so practical and easy to implement. ”


“ Mental toughness helped improve my confidence and focus in my personal, business and sport activities. I now have a competitive advantage I am confident in circumstances that others find frustrating or overwhelming. I recommend the training to anyone who wants to change the way they deal with problems of life. ”


“ I’ve learned so much in The Courage to Win® I don’t know where to start! I learned exactly how to work towards my goals. I know how my emotions impact my life, and what to focus on, and exactly how to manage setbacks. ”



“I have met with Lisa for years now and she is the most caring, compassionate, and genuine person that I have had the pleasure to know. She helps me become a better version of myself after every one of our sessions. The best part is that Lisa has given me the confidence to overcome adversity in my past and has given me the tools to build a successful future for myself and my children. Thank you Lisa!”

Mike Dunphy

Mike Dunphy // Investment Banker

"I am a former Wall St. investment banker, so relatively smart. I had the incredible good fortune to find Lisa about 7 years ago. I had just gone thru a horrible divorce that brought on the onset of both bi-polar as well as scitzophrenia. I basically was bed ridden for almost 2 years. Though I had both a psychologist and psychiatrist they did nothing for me. When Lisa 1st started working with me, I some how knew my life was about to change for the better. She did not talk in psycho babble, but rather genuine concern and a desire to do for me what needed to be done. Though there were many times I would cry uncontrolably to her, she would always simply listen. She is by far the best listener I have ever come across. Because of Lisa and only Lisa I have gone from being almost totally bed ridden to a point where I have gotten my 2 beautiful children back {I lost both during this period}, I have friends that I go golfing and fishing with as well as dinners and clubs. I once again have a life, that at one point before Lisa, I tried to end as the pain was too much. Bottom line--Lisa saved my life. If you are having issues of any sort, you will not find anyone more compassionate and willing to do what ever necessary to help. She is worth 100 of my psychologists and psychiatrists. Perfect example--I was having issues with my ex-wife and was emailing Lisa all kinds of stuff over a 4 day period. Instead of waiting for our regular appointment on Friday, she called me on Thurs. to do what amounted to an intervention get me thru it. This is who she is. There is an old saying but accurate when it comes to this incredible woman--they just don't make em like that any more. I simply will never be able to thank her in a way even approaching what I received.

Frank Landi


"Can’t get out of your own way? Neither could I… Until I started working with Lisa. It is by no means an exaggeration to say Lisa is the most forthright, insightful and challenging life coach anyone could ever dream of. Lisa remembers things about me even I forgot. She will never let me lie to myself. She helps me understand and focus on my goals, and make consistent progress toward them. I succeed far more than I fail, and I owe a great deal of that success to my relationship with Lisa."

Larry Glenesk

LArry Glenesk// Fromer Vice president, Raytheon Canada

"Lisa's Mental Toughness Course Enhanced our performance at Raytheon, it dramatically improved our team dynamics - especially our openness and awareness of each other."


Richard Adams

“My relationships have benefited greatly from Lisa’s coaching. Like all great coaches, she sees what is missing and what is required to improve.  She pushes me past my comfort zone and provides insights that allow me to respond to
situations appropriately."

Alma Rotea // EBA Engineering Consultant

“ Lisa’s training was entertaining. It also gave me insight on my own habits and reactions. I like her interactive approach and she was, appreciably, more objective than I thought she would be. I am able to make use of the techniques I learned from her in my job. ”

Sarah Bell // author and horse care specialist

“ Lisa’s work is outstanding. My daughters and I listened to The Courage to Win® in the car as we traveled- absolutely fabulous. I learned a lot, even though I have studied this subject for years. There were some tremendous insights just put in another way and thereby deepening my own learning and self-improvement. ”

Darlene Gogal

“ This has been the most challenging and rewarding work I’ve ever done. You have made so many things clear to me and I will always be grateful. This has been a wonderful journey of self-discovery. Thank you with all my heart! ”

Debbie O’Flynn // disability management specialist at Enmax

“When I signed up for this course, I had a professional goal in mind. However, I ended up taking away powerful tools that can be used in all aspects of my life. This course was powerful and very much reached me in so far as self examination”

Doug Bruneau

“ This course has helped me feel good about where I am and concentrate on what I can control. Lisa provided the group with tremendous knowledge and experiences to go forward within our personal mental toughness ”

Darryl Durent

Nancy Chawrun // IT, Gibson Energy Ltd

David Hall

“Thank you for the great course! Very much worth the time in order to help my curling game. Very, very impressed with the collection of works you’ve used for this program. I really like how you used a different analogy for the various topics. What more can be said but ‘JOB WELL DONE!”

Dawn Constantin

“Everytime I receive one of your assignments or your feedback from my answers, I feel like I am opening a letter from a close friend. I enjoy being able to read your comments in the comfort of my own space and react to them freely”

Jeanie Markin

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to take the Mental Toughness Class, which helped me a great deal. You confirmed my inner feelings that living consciously is the only way to live. I process everyday situations much easier and feel so much happier with myself. Thank you for the individual coaching I had with you. I needed to unblock a lot of feelings and with your assistance I was able to deal with a lot of stressful situations in my life. I feel very confident with the decisions I’ve made and I truly enjoy living consciously. Again, thank you for the unblocking because I’m on the right track”

Noreen Schaefer // Enbridge Inc.

“As a senior IT professional, I help implement IT change across my organization on a large scale. Recently, I’ve had a leadership role in a critical project, and I’ve used Lisa’s mental toughness training with great success. Using her techniques, I’ve expanded my ability to communicate with others, building even more trust with key people in the project; together we’ve brainstormed some excellent ideas. I look forward to continuing my mental toughness training!”

Gordon McLellan

“Mental toughness can help you take control of the events and results in your life. A diligent user of mental toughness skills will be able to challenge and break assumptions that they make about themselves and proceed to achieve their goals and move to even higher challenges. Lisa Brown is very professional in her approach and sincere in passing her knowledge and experience of mental toughness to her clients. Lisa is easy to communicate with and delivers the training in a way that is fun and memorable”

Kim Wright // director of marketing and sales for Global ISN

“I came in to see Lisa because I had a goal that I was just not taking action on. All I could see were the barriers to that goal and I was pessimistic that I would ever be able to achieve it. Today, I am in a completely different place about it…I’ve gone from a state of inaction to where I feel I can move forward. I know I can handle everything that lies ahead of me without fear. I won’t think of anything less than a positive outcome. The barriers have been reduced to ‘speed bumps’!”

Gail Morash

“I found this course was exactly what I needed for me at this time. I cannot believe the difference in how I look at things and how I approach problems with so much more dignity for myself and others. I appreciated the time you took to respond to the lessons. I found this input invaluable and have read it over many times”

Marliese Miller

“Mental Toughness Training for Sport was a great course! I really like the way Lisa explained all the concepts, they are easy to read and understand. I loved the examples from other athletes. Many were the same as mine, and I liked knowing my answers weren’t weird. This course helped me gain a lot of confidence in everyday life and in my sport. I wouldn’t change anything about this course”

Gord Dewar // physiotherapist and acupuncturist for high performance curlers

“The course has been very insightful for me as a competitor and as a person (in relationships either with my spouse or fellow teammates or competitors). Forcing me to become aware of my emotions and how to deal with them in a real and positive way has been the most rewarding”

Karen Thirlwall // Professional Musician

“ My work with Courage to Win® has given me life-long skills for living a healthy, happy, successful life based on my dreams. The program has tremendous insight and compassion. ”

Lauren Colonna // CEO of Ovis Creative Ad Agency, New York

"I had NO idea there was a program out there that could completely affect my entire life!"
As a business owner for 14 years, I felt like I was on the spectrum of “successful” — I had some “wins” but more “losses”… but I would just cover it up.
And personally — in my relationship — I was “failing” a little every day too. I was never good enough, and it was a recipe for personal ‘napalm’. Enter Lisa Brown. I had no idea that an individual like Lisa Brown was out there and could completely affect my entire life… professedly and personally like she has done with me. She professionally coached me on taking my corporate business from JV to Varsity level (legit terms). She is an instrumental part of elevating me as a professional but even more importantly, Lisa has influenced my personal entire life and relationship in a positive way. Both of which I am eternally grateful for and look forward to many more years of her guidance, support.

Alison Forsyth // PhD, Harvard University

“ Live Your Dreams coaching was exactly what I needed after going through a major career setback. I was quickly able to identify the root of the problem, eliminate my emotional baggage, and then develop the confidence, personal genius, and influence I needed to succeed. I was truly enlightening and already opened a number of doors for me. I fully recommend the Courage to Win route to success! ”

Diane Mcphee  // Spartan controls

“ I have never enjoyed a training program this much." I am on my way to achieving my goal. I can hardly believe it's only been four business days since I left the Mental Toughness training program because so much has changed already. Thank you.”

ILA Edgar // University OF Calgary

“ The Courage to Win® is an incredible seminar. The tools I learned are life changing for me – I feel confident I’ll not get stuck spinning my wheels again! ”

Geoff Moysa // Mcmillan LLP

“ Lisa's course has changed the way I look at meeting challenges, both professionally and personally. Her guidance and mentoring have been invaluable. ”

Shelly Rue // Nominations Analyst, Oil & Gas

“ I’ve learned that there are answers to my problems there are ways for me to be successful! This course has been life changing for me. ”


“ I was in a rut that I couldn't get out of. I'd been in the same job for 5 years and felt stuck. After trying several strategies I finally tried mental toughness training with Lisa. Within 3 months I was offered a senior management position at my company! Lisa's strategies really work. ”


“ I got control of my time and my life. I feel like a winner!" "My struggle was time management. There was never enough time to do everything I had to do, let alone what I wanted to do. I felt swamped... miserable and confused. I am very impressed how quickly I started to see results. In Lisa's 30 Day program, I learned how to work through the obstacles one by one. I feel energized and know what is truly important in my life. I know how to prioritize tasks and eliminate roadblocks. I feel like a winner! I'm a happier and more productive person.”

Anne Chryanowski

Anne Chryanowski // ASCA Level 2 Certified Coach

"Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough when a person changes your life. You have made such a huge impact on me and my life and ability to help others. I signed up to be able to better help others but it was I who really needed the Courage to Win. I needed to believe in myself to help others. Thank you for inspiring and make me better.  am so grateful!

Priscilla Pettit

PRISCILLA PETTIT // Veterinarian

"I feel immensely lucky to have found Lisa as a coach. After my ex-husband left me
and I was in crisis and had been looking for more than my therapist offered
(great listening but very little for action items), I found Lisa. We embarked on an extraordinary journey, Lisa finding critical and key insights into what had happened in my past, my old patterns, and, importantly, how I could break out of these perceptions to find the confidence I was looking for. I successfully attracted my husband back. I went from being disempowered to having the choice of whether I wanted to be with him again. I am deeply indebted to Lisa for the incredible work we did together. She is absolutely the reason I found myself again, found love again,
found inspiration again, found a way to break out of an old mold – it was time and Lisa broke through where therapy could not. I owe her so much. If you are looking to turn a corner in your life, to find momentum again, to be confident in yourself, look no further. Lisa’s coaching is nothing short of extraordinary.

Heather Nock


"I cant say enough great things about Lisa.. I was having a very bad situation with my boyfriend where i just assumed there was no way id get him back.. But Lisa steered me in the right direction and thru her course realized what our issues were. She also promptly got back to me via email with all my questions. So he is back and basically wants to get married! Lisa is 100% genuine real deal... No games and manipulation. I highly recommend any of her courses. I did the relationship rescue but am going further with her other courses... Thanks Lisa!"

David Kramer

“Working with Lisa through the end of a difficult relationship was in many ways a life saving experience.  She allowed me to see things from a perspective that I was not able to do on my own.  Taught me the skills I needed to process all of the hurt and pain associated with the relationship and my past.  Her guidance and support provided the skills I needed to move forward positively, and the confidence that the end of my marriage was not the end of my life.  I highly recommend working with Lisa if you are struggling in a relationship, her guidance and support are invaluable!"


“I'm not sure exactly why things 'clicked' with Shannon like they did, but they did in a big way. I feel a spiritual connection to her I cannot explain. I love her with all my heart. The circumstances of our lives when we got together two years ago were extremely challenging, and we could not be together the way I'd hoped. I became impatient and acted in ways that were not myself, and we broke up. I was devastated. This is when I searched and found Lisa. Lisa showed me how to deal with my emotions and communicate in such a way that unlocked Shannon's heart. In turn, she became more forgiving of me. Today we are in a committed, loving, amazing relationship and just got married! I can't tell you how happy I am, and she is too. We have developed a deep and loving relationship that is in no small part because of your coaching.  I found your advice invaluable!


“Lisa’s insights, her deep understanding of human behaviour and her expert coaching have had a transformational impact on my effectiveness and well-being in both a personal and business setting – enabling me to rebuild neglected family relationships, as well as to become a more successful business leader and manager of people.”

Damien kEANEY

“Ten years ago I started working with Lisa as a Gaelic Football player. My ability to focus and play consistently under Lisa was impressive. I always wondered why I would have one good game and then perhaps not so good. The same would even happen during a half of a game - one good and one not so good. Getting focused was life changing for me. I performed consistently and to the best of my ability using Lisa’s right focus process. I completed all of Lisa’s performance programs and enjoyed every last detail. After I finished playing I was keen to learn more from Lisa and signed up for her coaching program. I was amazed how she helped me help others. I was a manager / coach with a few teams over the following years. I developed an ability to identify players who like myself were not consistently at their best. I was able to help them and allow them the opportunity to be their best and enjoy playing. Taking the pressure off the player and making aspects of the game totally in the persons control a ‘win’ for them was something Lisa really taught me. I am now successfully manager of another team and still use the skills Lisa empowered me with. Thank you Lisa." 

Richard L. Duczek

The mental toughness seminar was quite enlightening, Lisa Brown is one of the best facilitators i've seen in a long time!


"I was going through a VERY hard time in my life and needed someone to help me internally.  Lisa, thank you! Your words, your homework, and your help made a huge difference in my life.  I am a much better version of myself, being confident and happy and I appreciate you with all my heart."

Jason Urichuk

“The most valuable parts of the Courage to Win were the exercises that require coming out of one's comfort zone and physically writing down thoughts or feelings. This course was exceptional, both in terms of content and instruction. This is, without question, the most valuable course of this kind that I have attended. Thanks, Lisa”

Ron Smith

“The training was really practical because Lisa used real life scenarios. The participants could absolutely relate to them, and Lisa kept the atmosphere “light” and conducive to learning. Bottom line: our group wants more of this training!”

Mary Larson

“I found the course to offer concise, effective techniques that were easy to implement, while providing truly excellent results. The techniques helped me improve my outlook, confidence and focus in various situations in my personal, business and sport activities.

I recommend this course to anyone that wants to change the way they deal with problems and the twists of life”

Jody Schancel // secretary, human resources at Mount Royal College

“Thank you for teaching the Mental Toughness workshop- the comments indicate that everyone enjoyed it very much!

She wasn’t boring. She kept my interest throughout the workshop’.”

Shainaz Begum Mawani

“Until I attended your program, I never realized that emotional self-mastery was the key to a happy and blissful life. Your program opened up an immediate opportunity to get the necessary assistance and healing for my bottled up emotions and emotional hang-ups. All this has allowed me to be really aware and conscious about the mental and emotional states of well-being, resulting in a more positive and fruitful outlook on life. Each time I review the program notes and exercises, I gain more insight and am able to harness my inner strength anew in order to pursue my goals and strategies freely…I thank you and congratulate you for having the courage and ability to offer such an excellent course to the public- something that is so easy to follow and practice as a regular routine”

Tracy Gerlitz

“Thanks for the great course on mental toughness, I found it very useful and well-presented. I have tried a few of the concepts you presented and they are working well for me… I have found that when the work day is getting rough, they sometimes help to put things into perspective, for me. They came to me when I was most frustrated with workday events”

John Downing

“I am amazed you have distilled so much essence and wisdom into something so simple and practical (applies to so much in life, as well as golf). For me it is about letting go, rather than becoming…and I am really excited about adopting your advice and quickly regaining the joy I previously had for the game”-

Chantal Corbett // Dinos basketball player

“Lisa, I can honestly say that this course has taught me alot as a player. It has opened my eyes to a lot of things I do when I play, after games, before games. The whole blame, suppression and mental control are things I knew I was doing but not to the extent that you helped me see”

F.F.L // business analyst

“Lisa is very knowledgeable about human behavior and its effects on our lives. She also provides clear examples and directives so you can understand her points easily. Some things that Lisa taught me will serve me for my whole life… I now have a tool to improve my emotional immune system.”
