Rik is a high-passion, high-energy, amazing coach. Rik brings an incredible power and focus to his coaching and this really helps get great results for his clients. Since working with Rik, my personal interactions, presentations and outcomes have all improved dramatically. I feel better and am performing better.“- Jeremy Samuel – St Kilda, Australia.

Rik Schnabel is an amazing person and a true professional in his industry. I was given the opportunity with my company to be coached by Rik to enhance my sales. His ability to listen, train & guide me with his knowledge of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) was an experience that I will take through life with me. Rik personally changed my outlook on life, and created a Selling System for me which taught me to understand a deeper level about power of the mind and enhance my communication. You finish with an “I can do it” attitude. I highly recommend Rik as he changed my life and my approach to the way I work in my business & private affairs.”- Amanda McInerney – Hampton, Australia.”

Kapow! Thank you so much. Your coaching is so powerful, I want to savor it… I’m also not sure how much success I can handle at one time. I might explode!” – K.McKnight – Melbourne, Australia.”

Your work with me has helped enormously. Before I worked with you on my bird phobia, I was unable to even look at birds. I had had a huge turnaround. Not only can I look at birds, but I can have one sit on my arm. The work you are doing is truly amazing. It is changing lives. Thank you so much for what you do and who you are.” – Carrie Ann Gallagher, Chiropractor, Port Melbourne Australia

My fears seem to have drifted away, no “big bang” just over the course of the day after coaching, things seem clearer, the fears and excuses have faded away – that (bad) stuff is not relevant to me anymore. It’s even hard to think about the bad stuff with any clarity. I feel fantastic.” – Robert Skehan, Entrepreneur, Caulfield Australia

In a world where time is of the essence and change is the norm, I have learned techniques through Rik that have assisted me in making immediate changes in the most effective ways.

Rik Schnabel has been a life changing experience. I visited places that I did not know existed and was introduced to living life with a positive mindset.

The week after Rik’s coaching, I began living the future I had created!” – Dita Kasal, Ontario Canada

After Rik’s coaching, I noticed how uncannily I now seem to be in the right place at the right time. So far, I have a sponsorship deal, two new alliances and four new clients! It is definitely my new found faith in myself.” – Sandy Ewing, Principal, Life Coaching Melbourne – Melbourne, Australia

Since your coaching, I am now coaching full-time. I needed a computer and an office; I manifested both in 48 hours, just by following my intuitive voice. Four days after your coaching I got very specific about the group I chose to coach (Expatriates adjusting to life in their new chosen country). As a result of being specific, I have 2 potential strategic alliances and a new networking group. I believe this is just the start of endless possibilities for me. If you want more from life, connect to Rik’s coaching.” – Sue Thurston, Star Coaching – McKinnon, Australia

“7 Years ago I had a major operation and embarked on an Internet Education Self Improvement Program. R!k was one of very few that offered me life changing health tips without asking for money.  On the Internet many tell you how many millions they have made and about their travel, cars and houses. But they still want your money. I have never heard R!k boasting about the incredible successes that he has had. Online is full of Charlatans, R!k is definitely not one of them. He is the real deal.” – Richard Gault
