We had a fabulous time in 2014 in Stafford, VA learning, growing and exploring in life, love and business with our special guest Mr. Tony Gaskins. Below, you can read some of the testimonials from participants and Ari’s clients.

“The Release the Chains conference was one of the most inspiring, enlightening and invigorating experiences I have had in a long time and is by far a must attend event! It has been an awesome pleasure to be a part of “Release the Chains” and “Youth Takeover Summit” events!  Participating and attending these events has inspired me to renew my passion and to take my business to another level.  The tools and lessons received are priceless – no limits, no boundaries! Ari, thank you for your leadership and vision in developing what I describe as the most prestigious and awe inspiring events.  These events would not be possible without you and your excellent staff, whose creativity, energy and attention to detail gets you a rating of “five stars”.” ~Sintrell Dass

“Powerful weekend is an understatement! I just knew I had to be at the conference and didnt know why. But as Adrienne Helovesme Thomas said I’ve never attended a conference that focused on so many aspects of our lives: business, finance, relationships and entrepreneurship. I met new friends, fellowshiped and grew as a woman. I cried so much! I felt blindsided because at one point I said to myself “I wasn’t expecting ALL of this!” I learned how to be vulnerable and transparent all while giving me the kick in the butt I needed to keep moving forward. As a a therapist, there aren’t many opportunities to just let my hair down and be me because I am superwoman to everyone else during the week. So this weekend was worth it and it renewed my faith in women supporting women towards our purpose in life. I can’t wait to see what R Ari Squires has in store for us next year! Total exhale moments all through the weekend!” ~K Ann Robertson

“I’ve worked with many professionals and learned from some of the best experts in the world: R & B Singer Chante Moore (pictured), ABC’s Secret Millionaire James Malinchak, Jack Kennedy and Oprah’s boyfriend Stedman Graham and Ari just blew me away. She knows her stuff! I recommend her to many of my celebrity friends and colleagues when they are looking for someone professional, knowledgeable in their field and keeps it classy. They say nothing but great things about her and call me to thank me. I tell people all the time that they better look out for Ari. She’s driven, her clients absolutely love her because she is creatively helping them surpass their limits in so many ways and she is not afraid to push you to your next level. Ari is IT! I’m glad to call her my friend and professional colleague!” ~Vicki Irvin – Biz Coach, SuperWoman Lifestyle

“Being a part of the Mastermind group with Coach Ari has helped me increase my businesses visibility and clientele just by applying key recommendations taught by her over the past three months!  The coming together and consistent support has encouraged me to take personal risks, step out of my comfort zone and call when I need help. Having a core group of sisters that inspire, share and provide guidance is a lifesaver to say the least; and I am thankful for Ari because she cares enough to give it to me straight, holds me accountable and supports my success as I concur each milestone.” Gigi McMillian

“Through Ari’s P.U.S.H. Mastermind Group, I have noticed a phenomenal transition not only in my business but in my thought process as well.  Her detailed and extensive training coupled with the comradery of our fellow P.U.S.H. Partners, has led us all in experiencing massive success.  I highly encourage anyone interested in taking their business to the next level to join this awesome group!” Joy Pearson

“My Book is My Business Card” R Ari Squires ‪#‎ReleaseThatBook‬ Any time women come together with a collective intention, it’s a powerful thing. Whether it’s sitting down making a quilt, in a kitchen preparing a meal, in a club reading the same book, or around the table playing cards, or planning a birthday party, when women come together with a collective intention, magic happens. Phylicia R.‪#‎Priceless‬ That’s what happened on yesterday at the Release That Book Boot Camp with Ari Squires. Thank You So much Ari for pouring into us and pushing me out of my comfort zone. ~Lisa “Get Excited” Tabler

“I just wanted to share my experience and heart with you. I had an amazing opportunity to work with R Ari Squires on her event. When I tell you it was an experience, it truly was an experience. It really will let you know if you are able to handle pressure, wear multiple hats, all while serving others. I have participated in events before but this has solidified my hearts desire to serve in a big way. We have the best opportunity to learn from Ari and yes, we are investing in ourselves by pouring our finances into being coached but know that you can gain so much when you are truly OPEN to learning more. This past weekend has ignited such a fire, such a desire to do things in excellence but with integrity, grace and excellence. Im done playing it small or safe. Its time to unleash possibilities. Thank you Ari for allowing me to participate in such a big way. You are a selfless mentor and I appreciate the opportunity you gave to introduce you for the event. Ari, you showed up in a big way and everyone really enjoyed the Summit. Having a behind the scenes perspective gave me a new found respect for you and your vision.” ~Leslie Y. Jackson

“I have had the pleasure of participating in the P.U.S.H. Mastermind Group powered by Ari Squires. This was my first professional dealings with Mrs. Squires, and to my surprise, she over-delivered on the expectations she set for the group. WOW!!! Ari has done an outstanding job of creating such an unmatched synergy amongst the group, which consisted of ladies from many different backgrounds, and professional experiences. I am beyond pleased with her knowledge and professionalism, and am further along in my coaching practice than what I was when I began this mastermind journey; this speaks volumes toward Ari’s credibility because we are only four sessions in to this experience. At this rate, I can only imagine where I’ll be once we’re done. Ari’s knowledge, paired with her dedication and willingness to serve others makes her the ideal choice for anyone  seeking a reputable, results-producing business coach.” ~Keisha M. Green
