Until my next seminar with you I promise to be a good student and put and put all this wonderful structure into practice.

By Mary Davis / Spa Royal

I have attended Dori's Leap Ahead seminar and it was fantastic! She shared some really great information and taught me a lot of new ideas that I could add and or simply tweak within my business. Dori is super easy to talk to and to get along with. She really went above and beyond to make sure that I was a success at any change I made within my business after attending her course in San Francisco. I highly recommend Dori if you need to recharge your company and watch your profits soar!

By Sheila & Bob Brittinghan / The Beauty Bar& Wellness Spa

I met Dori last year (2010) at the New York show and knew immediately that I wanted to attend her Leap Ahead Seminar. At that time, I had attended 2 of her classes in New York. After attending her Leap Ahead Seminar a year later, I am excited to get back to my business and put everything in place. Thank you Dori for the inspiration, motivation, and coaching to put our business knowledge in place. You are the BEST!

By Tish Singh / Aesthetic Spa & Salon

After everyday I left the Leap Ahead Seminar, I am so motivated to start using everything I’ve learned. I can definitely see lots of profit increases with just the way we recommend our treatments/products. Even I, who has never been good at sales, feel I can do it genuinely. I’m excited! Thank you Dori! You are wonderful!

By Jenni Cornette / The Beauty Spot

Dori, I am completely inspired and dedicated to implementing the knowledge you have provided me. I am ready to take The Beauty Spot to the next level. I hope to achieve the balance I am seeking in my life by utilizing these tools. I look forward to growing with you.

By Dani Griffith / Beauty Spot

Dori, You rock! I am beyond excited to go back and kick some spa butt! The information you have given me is exactly what I needed to give me the confidence to excel in this business. I have already recommended your work to my spa peeps and plan to follow you for more! You are a huge InSPAration for me to set and reach my goals to be the best spa leader I can be.

By Rina Tzeng / Akoya Spa

Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful seminar! The systems that you’ve created for spa owners and the clarity that you have provided us is like giving us the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. There should be no reason why I can’t make my mom’s spa dream come true. Again, it has been a pleasure to attend Leap Ahead. I hope to make you proud to have me as a student.

By Brent Voorhees / Spa D’Athena

Dori! Dori! Dori! Thank you so much for giving me the XYZ to my A through W. I’m looking forward to many more years of working with, learning from, sharing with and friendship with you and your team.

Dori! I have learned so much in the last three days! I enjoyed learning and laughing with you and I’m so excited to take this back to Colorado and be in the same boat as my mom! Big thanks!

By Evelyne Viens Dobish / Mirage Holistic Spa

Thank you so much. This seminar- your entire business is a wealth of information and so beneficial. I can’t wait to get home and implement it all. You are awesome! Thanks a million! I look forward to working more with you.

By Beth Pestotnik / Skin Essentials

After working with Dori for over a year via phone, video, and CoachMe calls, I am absolutely amazed how much additional information and ideas I gained. Just to be in the presence of Dori was worth the cost of the seminar…she is brilliant. I am inspired, motivated, and ready to implement and teach her techniques and systems. This seminar has “put all the pieces” together for me and given me such clarity. Thank you Dori!

This was an awesome seminar. I learned so much and gained so much insight. The classes were fun and highly informative. I’m ready to unleash the dragon and prepare for a great future in the spa industry. You Rock!

By Pamela Orth / Renu Laser and SkinCare

What a wealth of information! For spas medical, massage, etc., the information Dori shared with us is invaluable! I highly recommend her!

By Lynn Pattishall / Renu Laser and SkinCare

If you own a spa of any kind this is the best money you’ll ever spend!

By Mary Schinbeckler / Turtle Cove Spa

I can’t wait to get home and implement all of the great ideas Dori gave me! She is a wealth of information and experienced in the spa industry. This seminar has been a great investment for me to ensure the success of Turtle Cove Spa!

By Debbie Justice / The Spa At Merle Norman

To sum up the Leap Ahead Seminar from Insparation Management: Phenomenal. The valuable content and presentation of materials, along with a mix of likeminded spa professionals, as well as a talented facilitator, are invaluable. The caring and dedication of Dori Soukup for her leaders goes way above and way beyond what I ever expected from her program. After 30 years of being a business owner, I thought I had all the answers. Dori showed me many new ways to ask the questions, then guided me to search for more productive answers. Show her your desire, and she can lead you to become a better business professional, as she did me.

By Natalie Spencer / Renaissance Day Spa

Leap Ahead exceeded my expectations! I have attended Leap Ahead twice. Once by myself and once with my executive team. Since I’ve returned to work, I have refined many parts of our business plan and implemented many of the new marketing strategies I learned. Our traffic flow and sales have increased by 30%. We loved the VPG program; it opened up our eyes on how we should measure our performance. Leadership Excellence is very dynamic and so full of valuable information.

Once I got back to work and started to see results, I convinced our president to have Dori conduct a private seminar for our entire management team. She has been working with us for two years now and while other businesses are suffering from the slowing economy, our business is stronger than ever. We grew our business in double digits last year and continue to do so now. The Leap Ahead seminar and all of InSPAration Management’s educational programs are so dynamic. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking to improve their overall business efforts. Thank you so much!

By Jackie Martin / Jacqueline Morgan Day Spa

Finding Dori and InSPAration Management has been such an amazing experience! We started with Leap Ahead, then joined the CoachMe membership, which has been like having our own private coach all year round. Now, InSPAration Management does all of our newsletters for us! The support, training, and guidance that weve received has taken my business from doing pretty good to Wow, I never imagined this kind of revenue was possible! Implementing all of Doris business management tools has been so extremely time saving and helpful for our entire management team. Just to name one, the Spa Business Manuals CD;

I can only imagine how many hours it would have taken me to create manuals for each department. But all we had to do was make few edits to customize the manuals that InSPAration Management provided and now we have professional, impressive, and practical manuals for the entire spa team! Training is a pleasure now! Thanks to all of the training and encouragement Ive received, my leadership and management skills have improved tremendously and my spa team now has direction, goals, and motivation! I enjoy my business now. Thank you Dori!

That’s what the LEAP Ahead Leadership Seminar is about: Showing you a PROVEN blueprint that will shortcut your success and give you the tools you can immediately “cut and paste” into your business.

By Cindy Cobb / Allure Enhancement Center

This is like getting a Master’s degree in Spa Business Building! This is stuff they didn’t teach you when you went to school…and you probably didn’t learn these important business-building lessons when you opened your spa.

By The Skin Essentials Team / Skin Essentials MediSpa & Boutique

The Spa Business Manuals have helped me implement structure, consistency and amazing strategies in my Spa. I have never had the time to create these myself and I’m so thankful to InSPAration Management for creating these. Through my work with Dori these past years, I now have 8 team members and these manuals are just the thing I needed to help my team grow and function our best together! Thanks, Dori, and the InSPAration Management team!

By Jay Cowan / Love to Live Spa

You’re truly my idol. Moving forward, my eternal dialogue starts with “What would Dori do?” Hearing about how you first started managing with little success to winning an award a year later is more fuel to my motivational fire! Thank you for being you!!!!

By Karen Houshultz / Apple Day Spa

You are an InSPAration and a blessing. You have a God-given gift to inspire others in the most positive atmosphere. It was awesome to spend 3 productive days with motivative, like-minded people. I look forward to working with you in the future!

By John Van Tassell / EuroPro, Inc.

Dori, Thank you for taking the risk and following your passion. You are truly inspirational. We believe this training will make meaningful impact in our business and our lives.

By Lisa Salcido / Europhoria

Dori, Thank you so much for this amazing training! I cannot wait to go back and implement your great ideas. You’ve given me the confidence to go back home and be on fire! Can’t wait to bring you to Bakersfield and share you with our TEAM OF EXPERTS!

By Dainerys Sanchez / Nu Spa Medical

Dori, I have to admit that when Erlyn and Dr. Luisa asked me if I would be interested in taking your Leap Ahead training, I had my reservations about it. For a while, the idea that it would be way out of my league bothered me a bit. So I said to myself, only God knows why this opportunity to step up and take a risk came knocking on my step. Therefore, I assured myself that I would make the best out of the experience, learn as much as posssible, and prove to myself that even an underdog can be a leader. The last three days have been a wonderful journey of knowledge and possibilities. You are like an open library of experience. I am so glad to have met you and to have the opportunity to create a professional relationship with you and your team. This was just amazing!
