Peter’s amazing range of knowledge and expertise, combined with his desire to help others succeed is what attracted me to this great leader.  His carefully considered, client-centered advice and guidance, along with the timely resources he provides, gave me what I needed to take my business and life to the next level.  I know for a certainty that he can help anyone succeed, anyone who is fortunate enough to be guided by him.

 I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation BE WISE & ANALYZE, finding it very motivational.  Without a doubt, you met the expectations of myself and the Orillia Manufacturing Association.  The perspective you put on the balance between work vs. leisure time, family, etc., really does bring us back to what is important in our lives.

The resources and guidance found at BFL have enabled me to take back full control of my destiny in this ever increasing hectic world.  With the knowledge gained from BFL, I will be able to achieve my professional goals 5 to 10 years earlier than anticipated while at the same time enhancing my personal and family life. 

You have no idea how much of a difference it has made in my life. 

I appreciate your time, knowledge and advice.

The Canadian Institute of Management found your presentation of 

“How to Have Your Best Year Ever” to be thought provoking and entertaining. 

It gave the group the opportunity to step back and consider

how one spends their precious time on the planet

and our impact on those around us.

I would like to take an opportunity to offer a formal recommendation for Peter Tymciw.  In partnership with the Mariposa Skating Club and Innisdale Secondary School, Peter provided a superb presentation focused and researched for my special group of students.  Peter brought forth an energetic, passionate and well planned seminar pertaining to the needs, motivation and self-development of my national and future international figure skating students.  Students quoted thereafter as being `..inspired...`and `stimulated...` to better themselves and their skating practices.  I believe Peter to be a positive addition to a variety of topics and dedicated to pursuing the best of ones personal and professional development.  I highly recommend Peter to any event regarding motivation and personal development.

We would like to thank you for a terrific speech and for helping us all to have a great and most enjoyable meeting last night.  I can tell by how riveted to you the audience was, that we were taking in what you said and learning a lot from it.  It seems to me that public speaking is the vehicle by which you transmit whatever it is that you have or want to share with, or teach to others.  Last night, you taught us about many of the important contributors to public and professional speaking and I believe helped each person really stop and think of what it is they want to do in life and how they can convey their knowledge to others and be good at it and make money at it, to be pragmatic.  We all enjoyed your speech and again, thank you for your time and efforts to making our meeting a terrific one.  Thank you also for the wonderful books you generously gave to us. I love mine and I know the woman who got hers is intrigued by her gift of a book from you..

This seminar inspires people to consider the alternative of a life of mediocrity or a life of thrilling adventure.  It inspires people to go for something that they’ve longed to do, yet have slipped away from.  This seminar does much to allow people

to recreate their life.

Excellent Peter!!  Truly inspiring!  Timing is perfect.  I am just starting a brand new career and am having some serious reservations!! 

But you have given me HOPE! Thank You.

Peter is an excellent speaker and motivational “mover”. I really enjoyed his seminar, which, as some other things in life, came at the right time for me.  I needed “something” to re-gain my focus and Peter just helped me to clarify my priorities.  Thank you Peter!

Danny Cheoreanu


Your presentation was charismatic, thought provoking,

life-changing and entertaining.

Victoria Serda


Excellent presentation.  Practical and life applicable.  Easy to implement. 

I will be starting my goal list tonight!  WOW!

Lois O’Neill


Great reminders about the “shortness” of life!. 

The way you ended your seminar was truly memorable.

Linda Doran


Well done, you kept my attention.  Good point – once you’ve been stretched, you can’t go back to what you were.

Brian Wiley


Powerful topic.  To consider one’s purpose and impact in life.  

As to some, a snowflake settling in a field or as the one that starts an avalanche. 

Each unique.
