"Words can't even begin to describe how I feel right now... Let's just say that I've just had one of THE MOST AMAZING weekends!! It was the pleasure and honor of receiving mentorship, self-growth and personal development training from Ericka Kelly Enterprises!! Prior to taking her classes, I was barely coming out from some dark, hard times in both my personal life and Air Force career. Still feeling overwhelmed during those times, it was those very words, "Leadership is for everyone" that was the beacon of hope I needed to hear (figuratively speaking). In taking her classes, it has taught me how to better communicate with people including my leadership, peers, Airmen, and friends. Thanks to her weekly courses, I've been able to strengthen the bond with amazing leaders. This journey of self-growth, both personal and professional development has just been extraordinary. Thank you, Ericka, for your time, your mentorship, sharing your wisdom, and adding value to my life. If given the opportunity, I HIGHLY recommend taking her courses!!"

Thank you for your servant’s heart, we are great because of your sacrifice, it was an honor to serve with Ericka.

She has the heart of an Angel, a commitment to caring because her clients are people first, she embodies professionalism, excellence in everything she does, and a desire to go above and beyond to serve everyone in her sphere of influence.

Great and authentic speakers open a window for others to see in their lives and create a mirror for listeners to reflect on their lives. Ericka Kelly is the window that created a mirror for me to reflect on my life; thanks Ericka for helping my growth journey. What I’m saying, Ericka Kelly is the real deal that refuses to settle for mediocrity. Good leaders ask great questions. And one of the questions Ericka is constantly asking Ericka. How can I improve and grow as a person and as a leader? Leaders cannot give what they do not have, Ericka is always improving so she can better serve. "

"I first met Ericka while working at the Pentagon. Her charisma and kind, yet direct, manner immediately drew me in. Now, years later, she is an invaluable mentor and life coach who has made a significant difference in my life. If you're looking for someone with a gift for connection and compassion, look no further. If you're looking for a no-nonsense coach who will help to accelerate your mindset and career, call Ericka. And if you're looking for a speaker with an amazing and inspiring story to tell, she's the one."

"Ericka Kelly is an amazing speaker and trainer. I have had the pleasure of hearing Ericka speak at a Military function as a keynoter, virtually as part of a mastermind alliance, as well as training for Diversity, Equity, and inclusion seminars. She is an engaging storyteller that connects with the audience and changes lives. She is one of the best communicators in the business and I highly recommend her for your venue."

"Ericka Kelly is the coach and mentor I've been longing for! I first heard of Ericka from a friend that was trying out her John Maxwell classes. I was instantly intrigued because I've been a huge fan of John Maxwell for quite some time, and I always looked for opportunities for self-growth and development. When my friend finished her first course, she recommended that I take it for the next round. From there, I was hooked! I have been taking courses with Ericka regularly since then so much so that I recommended to my leadership that our entire unit would benefit if we invested in her presentations. Personally, Ericka has brought so much positive to my life; I cannot thank Ericka enough for being a positive influence in my life! Ericka’s reputation speaks for itself in the Air Force Reserve, but her life experiences, expertise in her professional roles, made her the perfect presenter for our unit. She understands the ins and outs of the Military and the Reserves, the good, the bad, the ugly. She spoke about resiliency, managing a force through change, self-growth, credibility, diversity, communication, and development. The audience was intrigued throughout the entire seminar, and were left wanting more, many of them wanting individual time with her. It's been a few days since the training sessions, but every day since I have heard quotes or references from the training! We're planning for more sessions in the future!"

"I have known Ericka Kelly for over two years. Her training/teaching skills are excellent. She encourages everyone to express their feelings on the topic and share their thoughts. With her guidance, I have begun to host my own seminars! Ericka dedicates her time to help her clients. She is an inspiring mentor and role model. I am honored to call her my coach. If you are looking for someone with the highest coaching credential or a fantastic speaker, do not hesitate, call Ericka!"

"Ericka Kelly was part of my military promotion and being selected as an annual award winner. I cannot be more thankful that we crossed paths. She is an amazing mentor, leader, and human being. I want you to know Ericka is by far one of my favorite people. She has built me up through my toughest times, shown me my worth, and betted on me even when I wasn't willing to do it myself. Thanks to Ericka and the classes she offers, I now walk in rooms cool as a popsicle and can speak with confidence and from the heart. I have realized how others see my confidence."

"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-toss to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" I have met so many humans that come from nothing and pure struggles, they never give up! Here is one of the best humans I have ever met…..want to change your situation just spend a few minutes with Ericka Kelly and your mindset will start evolving."

"I have personally experienced Ericka's exceptional talent as a speaker and leader in the field of Diversity, Equity, and inclusion. She asks such rare questions, guides uniquely, and listens through the insightful lens of her decades of work that have defined her experience. I sincerely recommend her as a speaker, a coach, and an exceptional mentor."

"I first met Ericka Kelly at a Senior Leadership Development course as she came to speak to our class. Some of the stories and feedback she provided allowed me to understand many avenues of leadership in a different perspective. A few years later, I was fortunate enough to join her for 3 John Maxwell mastermind courses and she's really instilled a variety of traits on leadership to help me as I continue my career. I'm very fortunate to be involved with these courses and would highly recommend Ericka to speak within your business, military units or just one on one as she has made it clear through all my courses. She's here to help others."

"I have known Ericka Kelly for over 7 years. As my career as an Air Traffic Controller was rapidly coming to an end, I took advantage of taking a communications mastermind with Ericka. Even though I still had things to do, I was floundering and was looking to jump start another career and needed guidance. Not knowing what to expect, I was impressed with Ericka’s delivery style and insight to the material she presented. This made Thursday night my “New” favorite night of the week. The 10 members of this class came from different career fields and had a wide variety of perspectives to share. The material and my classmates showed what blind spots I didn’t know I had and how to correct them. Ericka’s facilitating was so good that the Thursday Night Crew ended up taking another 4 John Maxwell Classes with her. If you’re interested in personal growth and becoming a better leader, I highly recommend that you reach out to Ericka Kelly Enterprises and let her help you identify “Your Blind Spots.”

"I had the pleasure to hire Ericka to facilitate a 2-day seminar for military Enlisted Leaders. With her John C. Maxwell credentials, it was a perfect fitting to add value and leadership nuggets to the audience. As a result, we grew into our role, gained knowledge, and became better leaders. I highly recommend Ericka for any of your speaker, training and/or coaching needs. She is highly professional and provides excellent service. Ericka is approachable, professional, and engaging. She is a great communicator and motivator. She delivers beyond 100% and will not disappoint. Do not hesitate to move forward with Ericka for any of your engagements!"

"I met Ericka Kelly from a personal referral who knew she would be the perfect person to get me going in the right direction. I shared that I was living with the effects of having survived and lived through serious trauma; I could tell Ericka immediately empathized. She stated, we may never forget our traumas, but we can find ways to overcome them and find ways to work through them. I believe Ericka’s initial push, her soft yet steady approach to keeping me accountable and the information of understanding where I was coming from was the catalyst that truly was a paradigm switch for me. I know I had to do the work, but sometimes having somebody who can understand your situation and break it down for you into "do-able" parts to get started and keep going. Ericka is this amazing person. The mountains I was seeing in front of me were actually climbable. This helped me tackle one thing at a time and start to accomplish and achieve what seemed to be an overwhelming amount of work and tasks that kept me frozen for a long period of time. I was able to land my first real job opportunity/offer in over five years post-trauma with confidence. Ericka's wealth of knowledge, training, accountability, and coaching can help any individual or corporate team achieve success in their goals whether it's personal or professional. I am forever grateful."

"Ericka Kelly called me out on my BS. I had recently returned from a deployment and was ready to retire. Ericka wisely asked if I had an associate degree with the Air Force to which I replied "negative." Ericka called me out and told me that was the real reason why I wanted to retire; she was right. She inspired me to return to school and get going with my higher education. It wasn't easy, but I plowed through school and graduated in June 2022. I stayed in the military and was promoted in 2021. I am thankful for Ericka’s mentorship and everything she has accomplished as a Latina Immigrant in the Military. I recommend anyone looking for a coach or a mentor to reach out to my friend Ericka and learn from her wisdom and credibility."
