Highly RecommendWith a brand new year new goals are set.

Sometimes we didn’t reach the goals we had intended to the previous year so they are still on our list for this year.

Or maybe we had every intention of achieving them last year but we weren’t at the right place in order to achieve a few of them so they weren’t possible at that time.

Either way, no matter what’s on your list for the year I wanted to help you along in case you don’t exactly have everything mapped out as to how you’ll accomplish some of your goals.

Maybe you have on your list this year that you want to hire a coach to help you with your business or maybe you need to get in great shape this year and will need some direction.

Maybe you’re looking for some new business to do online but don’t know who to trust or you’re ready to create your first product and are at a loss as to how to start.

Now the reason I didn’t title this post as 16 bloggers instead of people is because even though each one of the people on this list are bloggers, I wanted to focus more on their businesses.  You still can’t go wrong following their blogs though.

As I go down my list you will see that these 16 people are very talented individuals in their own right.  I’ll share with you who they are, what they do and you’ll soon understand why I recommend them.

For those that know me well you know I NEVER recommend anyone that I don’t stand behind 100% so if I say they’ll do a great job for you then you can take my word on that.

If you feel any of these people can help you in any way, please click on the button where I say “Click Here to Visit” along with their name.  Get in touch with them through their chosen methods  and then you can make that decision if they are the right person for you.  By all means, let them know I sent you okay.  I’m sure that couldn’t hurt.

Now let’s get this post started shall we!  By the way, I’m putting them in alphabetical order by first name so there isn’t any confusion that one person is better than another.

Barbara Charles

Barbara and I have known each other for a little over three years.  We met through a group in Facebook that was putting monthly mastermind groups together to support each other through blogging.  This afforded us the opportunity to get to know each other much better on both personal and professional levels.

Barbara has a full-time job and her commute is over an hour each way.  How she’s able to do it all is beyond me but she’s another dedicated lady bound and determined to build her business online and help as many people as she can.

Barbara is in network marketing but she’s different then most you’ll meet.  Granted, everyone in a network marketing opportunity would love for you to join them but she’s taking a different approach.  She’s eager to help people who want to learn how to build up their own network marketing team.

She’s done a phenomenal job building her own team.  The company she’s involved in, so many people are coming to her for help which of course she’s not getting compensated for.  She has so many awesome ideas to share and it’s not your normal cold calling methods most people are taught.

If you feel like you’re not getting the support of your up-line and you’re eager to build your own massive team, go learn from Barbara.  Head over to her blog, opt into her list and grab her free report titled, “Learn How To Recruit Online”.

Visit Barbara

I’m not in network marketing but through our mastermind group I’ve watched Barbara and she’s shared with us exactly what she did to build her team.  She’s just really good at this and I think this is an area most people in this business need some serious help in.

I definitely trust Barbara and know that she is very good at her craft so if you’re ready to explode your own team in 2015, go learn from the best.


Camilia Rojas

Camilia is known as Cami to her friends so that’s what I’ve always called her.  We met almost two years ago when she opted into my blog and since she was living in another country at that time we spoke via Skype.  We’ve stayed in touch and just a few weeks ago we got all caught up again with each other via another Skype call.

Cami is married and has a young daughter.  Her blog is TityCrafty and she has a lot of really cool and fun stuff over on that one but that’s not what I want to share with you.

Cami is a very very very talented designer and if you do check out her site I want you to know that she custom made her blog theme.  That’s what she does, she’ll custom make your own theme upon your recommendation.  Yours will never be like anyone else’s.

Check out her portfolio and see for yourself what’s she done.  She’s also been working in Genesis so she’s very knowledgeable about that blogging platform.

Visit Camilia

As a matter of fact, when I get ready to finally change my theme I’m going to get Cami to do one for me.  Who doesn’t want one that’s custom made to what the heck you want right!

I highly recommend Cami because I like her, I trust her and I will purchase from her myself.  Oh and her rates are very reasonable so I wouldn’t wait too long if I were you and are interested in having your own theme created because she should be charging much higher rates than she is.


Carol Amato

Carol and I just met last summer upon the recommendation of another blogging cohort.  I admit being a little intimidated by her at first glance but I had made myself a promise to move forward and make those connections anyway.

She actually opted into my blog and hired me for my consulting service because she had an area she felt she could improve upon although I thought she was rocking it pretty great as it was.

I came to know more about Carol over the months and she’s now someone I look at as a dear friend as well.  Yes, I do like her as a person and I definitely trust her as a business woman plus she has been online for a number of years and is really doing very well.

Carol has a mastermind coaching club where she’ll take you by the hand and show you how to build your own successful business.  She’s been where you are, she’s done the work herself, she’s built a successful business and she can show you how you can do the exact same thing.

Visit Carol

Check out her page and you can even schedule a free 15 minute call to see if she is a good match for what you’re looking for.  Everyone I believe needs some type of coach to help them along the way and you can’t go wrong with Carol.


Carolyn Nicander Mohr

I’ve known Carolyn now for almost four years and I just think the world of her.  Most people know that we actually met in person a little over a year ago when she came through Houston to go cruise with my nephew.

Carolyn isn’t promoting anything or creating any type of business but her knowledge of tech is so extremely helpful.

Carolyn’s brother actually convinced her to start blogging about tech and she’s the reason I bought my first laptop, my first iPod and upgraded to an iPhone.  Had it not been for her I probably wouldn’t have done any of those things knowing me.

She’s been so helpful to explain things to me so that I can understand how to use the technology since at times I’m a little slow.

Visit Carolyn

If you need to know anything about technology then visit Carolyn.  If you’re curious about wanting to know about something then contact her and she’ll be happy to help you.

I call her the Queen of Tech and I trust her recommendation above everyone else’s.  I know she has my best interest at heart.


Connie Ransom Rose

I’ve probably known Connie the longest of anyone I’ve met so far online.  We met on Facebook back before I even started blogging.

You know how you just connect with someone and it’s just an instant friendship from that moment on?  Well that’s pretty much how it was for Connie and me.

Connie has many talents and like another dear friend of mine she’s also a professional psychic.  Not only that but she’s a certified life and wellness coach, a numerologist, a palm and tarot card reader, a meridian and temperal tapping therapist and law of attraction specialist.

See what I mean?

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve called her for guidance and support.  She’s always been there for me and she’s been spot on every single time.

She focuses on the areas of your life that need your attention and will come up with a plan to get you back on track. You will not only know what you need to work on, but you’ll have the tools to get the results you need to live the life you were born to live!

Visit Connie

If you feel you need help in any of these areas I highly recommend Connie.  Not that she could use more business but I just can’t help but recommend her.  She’s that good…

Check out her site and let her know I sent you now.


Corina Ramos

Corina goes by Cori to her friends so I’ve been calling her that for a number of years now.  A little over two years to be exact, that’s about the time we met through blogging.

What I admire about Cori is her knowledge of work at home businesses and how to prevent you from signing up with one that’s up to no good.

She’s given me some solid information over the years to help some of my friends who have come online looking for ways to make some extra money and aren’t interested in getting into blogging or building a business of their own.

Cori and I also both live in Houston although we’ve yet to meet in person but it’s on our agenda to do just that this year.

I think the world of her, she’s a great person, she cares about people and wants them to do well.

Visit Corina

If you need some solid advice about work at home jobs then be sure to check out her blog and if you have any specific questions just be sure to ask her.

Oh by the way, she started a new interview series on her blog last month and I was the first in her that series.  Hopefully you didn’t miss that one but if you did you can visit that post by clicking here.


Dana Gore

Dana and I met through blogging a little over two years ago as well.  She actually blogs over at I Choose Awareness but when we met she was a contributing author on a fitness blog.

What impressed me the most about her is her desire to help others when it comes to fitness.  She even wrote a book titled “A Simple Guide to Exercise Safety (What You Don’t Know CAN Hurt You)”.  I’ve read it and I can vouch for it’s content.

How many times have you heard about someone who works out at the gym yet they continue to hurt themselves either lifting too many weights or doing the exercise wrong!  I can tell you guys, my brother is one of those people.

Her knowledge is impressive and now she’s contributing at another blog, Formulated Fitness.  She even spent over an hour with me one night on Skype helping me with an exercise plan that I could start that she felt would benefit me.

Visit Dana

She just really knows her stuff and again, I can vouch for her.  If you need more information about exercising then be sure to visit her at the fitness blog.  And it wouldn’t hurt you to buy her book either.  I mean if you do want to make sure you’re doing things right.


Danny Iny

You’ve heard me speak many times over the years about Danny.  I consider him to be one of the good guys.

Now I did become the “Engagement Superstar” because of him having won the contest he was hosting back at the end of 2011.  But I got on his radar because of that and to have someone of his caliber take notice was just very flattering to me.

Over the years he’s reached out to me and offered me advice.  I’ve purchased some of his courses and he’s a hands on guy eager to help you succeed.

Last year he launched a beta course called “Course Builders Bootcamp”.  I actually got on his webinar and spoke to him about it since he already knew I was in the middle of working on my product.  This course was for people who didn’t have a product and were eager to create one and it could even help you it you don’t even have a list.

I jumped on board and I’m glad I did.  Because we did share our thoughts about how he could improve it be recently just released it where it’s 10 times better.  The doors had closed last week for purchasing this course but have reopened today for a short time only at a very affordable price.

Visit Danny

I can vouch for Danny, his products and his team if you are interested in learning from the master about how to create your own course, launch it and have massive success.  I recommend you at least look at it and then make your decision.


Deborah Tutnauer

I met Deborah last summer after she opted into my list and I gave her a call.  She was very pleasant to speak to and it was like old home week almost instantly.

Deborah is a very talented Entrepreneurial Business Success Coach, speaker, author, event leader and consultant.  That’s a mouthful wouldn’t you agree?  She’s especially dedicated to women and helping them realize their worth.

Boy has she helped me and it’s because of her that I revamped my consulting page and took a page from her book.  Women have a harder time valuing themselves because we are so giving.

Deborah wants everyone to be successful and sometimes we just need that direction.  If you are looking for that type of coach this year then be sure to visit her page.  If you have more questions or want to get to know her first she’s more than open to chatting with you so that you can see if you two might be a good fit.

Visit Deborah

Just the advice she has given me has helped me move in the direction I know I need to go and help myself so I highly recommend her services if you feel this is an area you also need some help in.


Don Purdum

I also met Don during the summer last year as he stopped by my blog for a visit.  We actually conversed a few times via email and through Facebook and then a phone call took place.

There is nothing like speaking with someone on the phone in order to get to know them a little better.  It’s like you have that immediate connection with them and feel closer to them for some reason.  Maybe it’s just me but I doubt it.

I learned a lot about Don and he’s someone I’ve quickly come to admire.  He’s had several businesses over the years but is really an expert when it comes to marketing and what I really admire about him even more than that is how he can help you figure out what business you’re in.

Now most reading this post are saying to themselves well heck Adrienne, I know what business I’m in.  But my question to you is do you really, I mean really?  That’s what he helps people and businesses do since a good bit of the time the reason they aren’t having success is because they aren’t coming across as well as they should.

See my tagline on my blog?  Don came up with that one and all I did was ask him for advice and he rattle about nine of them out rather quickly.  He did that for me though because we’re friends and I’m sure he would do the same for you if you have that relationship with him already.

Visit Don

Either way, if you need assistance with extending your message and/or reach online then Don’s your man.  Drop by for a visit and a free 30 minute consultation to see if what he offers is what you need.


Donna Merrill

Donna and I have known each other for a little over three years now.  We also met through blogging and ended up in the same mastermind group that Barbara and I were in.  That group brought a lot of us ladies together who we all look at as really great friends.

It’s funny but I was also intimidated some by Donna since I viewed her as the social media queen back when we first met.  She just really was very smart when it came to putting yourself out there and building up your presence on social media.

Another thing I love about the mastermind groups is that we help each other along the way and we’ve each grown in certain areas which is exciting for us all.

Last year Donna and her husband David launched their first product called “Blogging Magic”.  It basically covers what you need to know about blogging since a lot of people are often confused about where to start, how do they get traffic, should they comment, is a blog necessary, you name it.

From there though they have moved into a VIP Coaching Club where they offer way more information about how to build a successful business.  Once again, sometimes you just need that coach to help you with your business if you aren’t where you feel you should be right now.

Visit Donna

If that’s the case then be sure to stop by Donna’s blog, check out what she shares, chat with her if you feel a need and for goodness sakes, get her product or join her coaching club.  You will NOT regret that decision.


Enstine Muki

I met Enstine a little over two years ago as well through blogging.  We crossed each other’s paths and I’m happy to say we’re still friends as time has gone by.

Enstine appreciated the advice I gave about blogging and building relationships and I’ve appreciated the value he’s given me and his readers about how to make money online.

That man’s brain really is in overdrive always coming up with ways to make money and of course they are legitimate, inventive and they work.

I enjoy reading his blog to see what he’s going to share with us next and as I released my course last year he gave me some advice about things I could do for my affiliates now that I have some that promote my course as well.

Visit Enstine

I admire him as a person, blogger and businessman.  If you want to learn how to make money online then I suggest you start following him very closely and apply the advice he gives you because you can’t go wrong.


Harleena Singh

Harleena and I have known each other for a little over three years now.  We met the year I finally got my act together and my blog started to take off.

We just bonded and have supported each other ever since.  People think of the both of us when they think of those that comment a lot and are good with making those connections.  Not a bad person to be aligned with in that regard.

Over the years her blog has really grown and has been named one of the top 100 personal development blogs for several years in a row.  Last year she and her husband Vinay created the Aha!Now community which I just joined at the end of last year.

I have not been as active in there as I had hoped due to having returned from my vacation to issues with home repairs and doctor’s appointments with my Mom.  All too time consuming.

The fact is though if you want to meet more people and start getting in front of them to help promote you and your blog then I suggest you join the ever growing and expanding Aha!Now community.

It’s one of my goals this year to be more active there myself because we all want to get in front of some new faces and introduce ourselves to some new people.  What better way then to join more active communities.

Visit Harleena

Stop on by now and sign up if you haven’t already okay and Harleena and Vinay will make you feel right at home.


Kelli Cooper

I recently met Kelli late last year and of course I knew her as Ryan Biddulph’s then finance.  They recently got hitched on January 18th so she’s a newlywed.

I had heard about her many times through Ryan and finding the time to stop by of course was difficult.  Her posts are really long like his but after visiting her blog a few times I have to admit, I LOVE what she shares.

Now I have several friends online who are life coaches and I recommend them all because they are all just that good.  I think though that with this type of coaching you just have to connect with the individual coach in order to have success in that area.

With Kelli’s posts I was just able to so clearly connect with what she was sharing and of course by asking questions just in the comment section she’s always been so eager to help.

When it comes to the law of attraction or understanding some of the areas we may be having difficulty in it’s really great when you “get” what the individual is sharing and with Kelli I clearly am able to get everything because she’s sharing through her own personal experiences.

Visit Kelli

Now I’ve never personally used Kelli’s services but if I needed them I would definitely give her a call.  She offers a free 20 minute consultation to see if you’re a good fit so if you’re in need of a life coach I suggest checking her out.  You be the judge if you two would be a good fit or not.  You’re the only one that can.


Raena Lynn

Raena is another one of the gals I met through the mastermind group I joined on Facebook some three years ago.

The funny thing is that I was also intimidated by her.  I was under the impression that because she was SO successful that she was unapproachable.  Had I not met her in this group I would have probably continued to think that and shame on me.

She is the most down to earth fabulous lady I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.  Raena was a school teacher and has been able to come online full-time now because of the coaching that she is doing now with the MOBE system.

She is killing it guys and if you want to learn how to properly market online and actually grow your business to a six or seven figures then you definitely need to work with this lady.  We watched her build her business and travel all over the place with the Matt Lloyd group as she’s excelled with them and their system.

Visit Raena

Just stop by her page, read more about her and opt into her list.  You’ll be very impressed once you get to know her but you have to be willing to do the work or it will be just another system you’ve purchased and wish you’d done something with.


Ryan Biddulph

Does Ryan really need an introduction?  No but I’ll give him one anyone just in case you’re new to blogging, new to my blog or haven’t yet had the pleasure to get to know him.

I’m closing in on four years now that I met Ryan, back when he was the cash gifting guy.  I never cared for what he promoted but there was something about him that I admired.  Guess it’s what you would call his determination.

We continued to visit each other’s blogs and he eventually came around to understanding the importance of blog commenting and making those genuine connections.

He had been traveling the world with Kelli and making his way online.  He slowly evolved and honed more into his niche which of course is blogging from paradise.  He’s now got I believe 10 books written about his journey’s and teaching you how he’s be able to achieve it all.

I’ve read a few of them and I have to admit, they are good and packed full of fabulous information.

Now you might be like me, a homebody at heart no longer interested in living the free spirited life.  That doesn’t mean you can’t learn how he’s been able to achieve what he’s doing because that can afford you the life you want to live either way.

You name it he’s written about it.

Visit Ryan

For the price of an eBook it’s well worth the money so I say dive in, learn from Ryan and start exploding your blog and business this year.


I believe this is probably the first time ever I’ve written over a 4,500 word post but I would say this time it was worth it.

There are plenty more people I could have added of course and perhaps I’ll do another post like this a little later this year.  These exceptional people have so many awesome talents to share with you and I want this year to start off right under the guidance of some quality people I KNOW can really take you far.

If you are in need of any of the services I’ve listed above please take a look at these guys, email them if you need to, have a conversation to find out if you’re a good fit and for goodness sakes tell them I recommended you.  It doesn’t hurt to let them know how you found them because that will help you both.

Now let’s not forget my little gem of helping you build those relationships online through your own blog community so if you haven’t grabbed my course yet I highly recommend it too.

Love to hear your thoughts and if you are in need of any particular services I may not have mentioned here and I’ll be sure to point you in the right direction.

Let’s go kill it this year guys okay!  I’m in if you are.
