"It has been a pleasure getting knowledgeable advice from Montsterr. I was really going through a trying time in my relationship that ranged from infidelity to problems with family. The advice was phenomonal and pointed me in the right direction. I enjoy reading his topics covered durin "Montster After Dark". Its amazing how he touches lives in so many different ways. It is a true blessing to have someone out there listening with a clear mind."- Kierstin Sandy Springs, GA
"I feel compelled to tell everyone I can about such a special woman such as Stephanie. She appeared in my life when I really needed encouragement! I don't think I knew that I needed the extra push until I received it. She's so determined, honest, compassionate, and warm. .. What I like to call a kindred Spirit to me. In just the short time I have know her, and even from afar, I see the resilience! Workouts twice a day?! Making time to give undivided attention to others, and yet keeps time for herself. Remarkable! She is a true blessing! Her great deeds are being rewarded 10 fold. Gods speed to you Queen. May you always be blessed and be a blessing to others as you have been to me." -Blessings, Pearl M. McNatt
"Monts has always been a positive person for as long as I can remember. Ever since high school when we used to dance in the hallways at Ribault he always been a good friend of me, my brother, and my family. It's great to see Montster really showcase his talents to the world and at the same time remain extremely humble. He is destined for greatness and y'all can Montster that!!!!" -Mr. Jones Atlanta, GA
"I was introduced to Stephanie Alva about 4 years ago by my wife, Angelina. From the moment I shook her hand I knew that I had just met someone that would enrich my life in a most positive way. Stephanie is a genuine person. I don't think that I've ever met anyone who, even when they were down, went out of their way to let you know that she knew that a brighter day was ahead. You can't help but to elevate your disposition when she's around. What a joy and honor it is to call her a friend. I've been a witness to some of the trials thrown her way and not once have I seen her waiver from her unshakable belief that God truly has her back. I have no doubt that the lives that she has touched and the paths that she has crossed have benefited from her strong belief and her ability to articulate. Someone once said, "Love and Happiness are perfumes that you can't sprinkle on others without getting a few drops on yourself". Stephanie Alva absolutely pours Love and Happiness. - James D. RichardsonBusiness Manager
"Montster has always been a positive person since we was woopin in the hallways back in high school. Im glad to know him!" - Leon Jones Altamonte Springs, FL
"Stephanie is a great motivator and always has an encouraging and uplifting word to share. She supports you 100% in your efforts which helps you push towards your goal. " - Coach Nisha Ray Life Coach
"I would love to give a testimony of how Montster has motivated me. One day I was going through some personal turmoil and wanted something to take my mind off of what I was going through. I got the invitation to go to a Ustream broadcast presented by Montster, and I thought that it was going to be simple entertainment. During the discussion on the various topics, Montster took the spin on talking about life and how the things in life are attainable. He talked about how he is thankful to God for taking care of him even though he was doing something that was not smart. (e.g. driving to work with barely any gas in the car). This moment of transparency ministered to me in my situation and told me to look for the bright side of any situation that I am going through. I have been following Montster on Twitter ever since and he has helped me laugh and think so many times. Thank you Montster for keeing a tamborine player motivated."-Kyson, Richmond, VA @soundwave_gen1 on Twitter
"It's difficult to put into words my feelings about Stephanie Alva and the impact she's had on my life. She's the ultimate example of: "please take my advice because I've been there." I remember her struggles and obstacles and how they affected her life. Now that I observe her take complete control of her life and her decisions, all I have to say is: Watch out world!!! Though her methods are unconventional, her tenacity and her ability to adapt are very apparent. Charisma and likeability are understatements, and she has the uncanny ability to find humor in everything! I love where shes been, who she is and what she will become." -Angela Scott-Betton Professor, Los Angeles, CA
"Tavaghn "Montster" Monts: Spend a few minutes conversing with him, and you will quickly realize that there is a lot of thought and maturity in his words. When he talks, people listen, and everyone is sure to end the conversation taking away something that will make a difference in their thoughts, actions, day, week and life. Whether in person or on Twitter, he has a knack for making people relax, listen and talk to him freely. It's not because he makes funny jokes or gives the latest and greatest scoop on what's hot or not. It's simply because he gives you the motivation you need to feed your ambition. For me, Montster's tweets always seem to come at the right time. I would be having a frustrating day at work and open up my timeline to read him telling his followers that as bad as it seems, someone else would give anything to be in our place. I could be having a hard time with my mate and read that I shouldn't give up without a fight. I would run into brick wall after brick wall and he would say that obstacles are opportunities. I struggled with the decision for a while to leave a job that was comfortable but inhibited my advancement in life. I read Monts Motivate Your Motivation telling me the differences between successful people and people who settled, and decided to make that plunge. I tend to sit back and read more than participate in the conversations, and over the last few months he's helped me through some tough times and helped me make some difficult but much needed decisions. Thanks to him giving me lots of motivation, I've been able to step out of what is comfortable and into what is unfamiliar, but what I truly want. As a single mother with 2 sons, one who has special needs, I've had a few mornings when I felt like putting one foot in front of another was like climbing a mountain. I'd read or remember some of his Motivate Your Motivations, say a prayer and keep it moving! I am so excited to be a part of his growth and to watch him turn into something bigger than he even dreams about! Montster has motivated me in more ways than he will ever realize! I have often thanked God for using him to bless so many! Keep doing it Tavaghn!"-Lade OlagokeAtlanta, Ga
"There is so much I can say about how Stephanie has allowed her light to shine, but for the sake of time I am going to keep this short and sweet. Although there has not been a lot of interaction between Stephanie and I, the most important of all is the consistency in her personality. She is always smiling and full of encouraging words, most definitely does she keep the "food for thought" on deck! I am appreciative for her smiling face as it was wonderful to see and made me realize that things are not as bad as they may seem. I am excited to see her allowing God to use her to keep that smile going and passing along the joys of life in those less fortunate. Hands down Stephanie Alva is a delight in life!!! May God continue to bless her and everything she is involved with!"

Don't put yourself in a box that doesn't even have your name on it! The world is full of wide open possibilities. The only true limits that we encounter are the limits that we place upon ourselves. I don't care what you've been told or even what you've been telling yourself. Greatness lives inside of you. You are a PIECE OF GOD walking the face of the earth... YOU ARE PERFECTION!!! YOU show people how to treat you by how you treat yourself In order for things to change in your life, YOU have to change. The worst thing you can EVER do is to give up! The strengths we have are meant to be of service to other people. With more confidence you will find it easier to take chances, learn new things and grow. Develop a new habit of building your value internally and choose to let go of what you cannot control. You can turn things around! You can succeed, even in the most difficult of circumstances! Your network increases your net worth! Be like little children and make believe! If you stay ready, you won't have to get ready! Acknowledge your magnificence!
