"As someone who has to train for the unknown and unknowable, literally any physical task you can throw at a person, the daily physical, mental, and emotional demands are extremely high. After winning the world championship and getting crowned "Fittest Woman on Earth" I found that I was putting unnecessary pressure on myself and struggled to stay in a successful mindset.
I decided to reach out to Tosh to help with my mental game. I had always been so impressed by his personal history, unbeatable mindset, and attitude.
Tosh and I sat down and we came up with a plan to train the mental mechanics, the same way you my train for a physical challenge. We evaluated where I was, laid out small achievable goals, and programmed habits to get me where I ultimately wanted to be.
Working with Tosh and my mindset training not only has me a better athlete and competitor, but also a happier, more productive and compassionate friend, wife, and coach. I simply feel like a better human."

"As a Director of Veterans Affairs I have the honor to work with some of the nations finest Veterans Service Organizations, share business practices with leading companies who have veteran platforms of their own, and work with the best and brightest around the country. I’ve had the opportunity to work with ‘Tosh’ at the 2016 Triumph Games, a veteran television competition filmed at West Point Military Academy highlighting adaptive veteran athletes, where he was the Athletic Director and in charge of creating and coordinating all the events. Anyone who knows Tosh identifies him as an electrifying individual who quickly commands respect and earns the admiration of anyone in his presence. I immediately recognized the value Tosh brings to a team environment and how his personal journey throughout life has provided an incomparable foundation for training and leadership development.
Not long after the Triumph Games, we began working together to assemble a world class leadership conference for Power Home Remodeling. This event turned into an experience that many of our employees have considered the most powerful and dynamic conference we have had to date.
In my experience Tosh and the Crooked Butterfly team embody certain core values many people talk about, but few genuinely demonstrate consistently throughout everyday life. Simply put, he is a beacon of authenticity in an increasingly disingenuous world. It has been an absolute honor to work with a Marine who serves others every day with the highest distinction, dedication to excellence, and utmost humility."

"Our organization has experienced exponential growth over the last few years. The majority share of this expansion is a direct impact of the concerted approach we take to develop our people and to create a service-leadership mentality. While we host several conferences for our employees annually, we hold two core leadership conferences for our top 200+ sales, marketing and operations leaders each year. We have brought in great individuals for these events, such as Wayne Gretzky, Colin Powell, Michael Strahan and many more. We are always searching for innovative ways to push the boundaries and unearth the seeds of greatness within our people.
Last year we asked Tosh to assemble a diverse team of high performers to create a life-changing experience that would take our leaders to new heights and explore the boundaries of possibility. Words cannot begin to express how effective this experience was for our leadership group. This singular event, hosted in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, impacted individuals in a way I had not imagined possible. We are proud and honored to have had the Crooked Butterfly experience and look forward to the future together."

"The experience of a lifetime is a cliché and frankly an understatement. Most companies have a product that they want you to buy. Crooked Butterfly took the time to reverse engineer the needs of our organization first. The amount of work Tosh’s team spent researching, identifying our history, and embedding into our organization allowed the team to truly create an independent leadership journey that was organic to our organizational requirements and specific challenges.
Additionally, the Crooked Butterfly team used a subtle approach, layered throughout the conference, to build a pattern of leadership themes that would evolve intrinsically within each individual over the course of our conference. Through this process the team was able to surgically target and expand on certain values and beliefs that are rooted at the core of our business. Lastly, the ability to create a singular experience is one thing, but to create an everlasting impression requires authentic and genuine leadership, which the Crooked Butterfly team demonstrated flawlessly."
