Here's What Our Dope Tribe Members Have to Say...

"Uncovering your dopeness can be a rough path when you lack guidance.  Eric & Lakila's coaching forced me to dedicate time and energy specially for me. 


As a working mother, I often found it easy to pour into everyone except for myself.  Their program made me focus on my needs and taught me how to operate in my authenticity, which naturally attracted my new fiance'!"

Monica B. - Formerly Single; Now Engaged & Dope AF

“I chose to participate in the Unleash Your Dopeness program because I felt like I was stuck, stagnant and getting in my own way of moving forward in life.  Lakila and Eric put together a series of questions and self-directed exercises that forced me to make some necessary changes.


I would recommend Unleash Your Dopeness to anyone who needs coaching towards making some changes in attitude, self care and overall wellness.  The program was relatable, easy to follow, but also demanded good time management.


The course reminded me that while it is ok to take care of others, it is also ok to put myself first.  I was reminded to align myself with like-minded individuals who are also moving progressively through life, so that I am inspired to do the same”

Vivia R. - Married & Dope AF

“I felt totally empowered and driven to accomplish my goals. I would highly recommend Unleash Your Dopeness. It's definitely a course that will motivate [clients/students] to identify and cultivate the dopeness they already possess.


The couple was so inspiring. They encouraged me to be the dope person I am...giving me tools to make me even more dope, as well as successful.”

Jocelyn W.  - Married & Dope AF

"The Bowden's are a radiant couple, always laughing, always encouraging, always supportive. The type of positive energy they exude not only creates inspiration, it also provides hope for singles and examples for couples.


Their true genuine nature is what supplies motivation. Neither of them are afraid to be vulnerable. Coupled with their collection of goals for themselves and guidance they provide to others, they are naturally inspiring. "
