Here is what people are saying about their Experience with Dave:

Dave Thorpe can help anyone with any phase of life. The Experience is tailored to the individual. The Dave Thorpe Experience is not just a dictated process that has to be followed in order to achieve success, but is a means to establish goals and achieve them based on the individual’s desires and ability. Not only does he help you establish goals, but it helps you achieve them with a support network. The encouragers will not dictate your path but will help and encourage you to discover and choose the path of your own. I myself know the character and integrity of the employees and stand behind them. I would recommend this to anyone who finds themselves without any drive and searching for what they should do with any particular facet of their life.

Throughout our meetings, I have learned how to set personal goals in a step-by-step manner. This process has provoked me to take initiative when faced with obstacles. For instance, I was encouraged to call the UC Irvine Admissions Office and engage in a conversation about what I can do to improve my application for the upcoming year and question the admission criteria for transfer students.

In addition, our meetings helped me reach my goals by creating time-driven tasks. Prior to our meetings, I would have been lethargic about researching ideal colleges, reading business newspapers, or discerning what major suits me best for my college years. Therefore, the meetings have aided me in completing research for college as well as allowing me to realize I need additional extracurricular activity. As a result, I took up an internship for real estate in Rancho Santa Fe for Summer 2009.

By encouraging me to engage in extracurricular work, I feel that my application to transfer will be much stronger in the year to come. I believe that each meeting contributed to my knowledge by boosting my confidence, teaching me to take initiative, and helping me recognize important information about my college career. I am thankful for the experience, and plan to use my acquired knowledge from the meetings in the future.

Hi my name is Lea and the Dave Thorpe Experience gave me a new chapter in my life.

Dave helped me increase my positive power and relate more productively with my friends and family right away. I love it! I was able to become authentic to my true nature, my purpose, and myself. I was able to find the track that I wanted to be on and was meant to be on. I was able to re-categorize my life and be very clear, and knowing what was first to tackle.

There was no more second guessing. It was thrilling to be able to go back to the raw material of myself and see what it revealed. I was able to validate who I am and explore what is different. It provided me with great piece of mind. I can now go back and deal with my past with unbelievable confidence. I learned ways to help myself that will be used for the rest of my life. I really liked writing about myself and felt that Dave’s “Experience” really extracted the essentials inside me. I believe that anyone on this earth can go through this process and discover themselves. My life had become all about being in safe place, which was boring, and I was missing out on life. It is when you are alive that things grow.

The Dave Thorpe Experience makes you alive and healthy. The process is so revealing. It drove into so many things in my life and helped me learn a different approach to my life and how I now treat each day, each conversation. I have become capable, I am more efficient, I am clearer, I am better able to plan and communicate, I am better able to say what I want and feel, and I process things much more efficiently. I never would have thought all this was possible. It empowered me with powerful tools that I can use whenever I want. I would recommend it to all.
