The program is designed to take an individual artist to the next level of the musical path. All information can be adapted to a band, artist and even their personal life.

During my onboarding telephone calls with Collision Drumsticks CEO Carlton Banks and Collision Drumsticks Director of Operations Monique Sar, I was given a very clear understanding and interpretation of the Collision Drumsticks Mastermind course.     

Monique provided insight to phases of the course in an easy to understand directive, asking question of a personal nature in order to completely personalize the information provided. Additional information was provided to show basics of the program, which resulted in immediate positive effects on my social media pages.  

The program is designed to take an individual artist to the next level of the musical path. All information can be adapted to a band, artist and even their personal life. I highly recommend the Collision Drumsticks Mastermind course for anyone who is looking to take the leap into personal and professional development.

She asked all the right questions and provided tangible hacks that converted to actual profit growth for my business.

It is a great pleasure to speak on behalf of Monique. As an owner of my own business I have sought out many coaches and would have to say Monique is the realest! 

Monique was able to give me more useful tactics in our one hour growth hacking call than I’ve had from many other coaches. She asked all the right questions and provided tangible hacks that converted to actual profit growth for my business. She not only tackles aspects of mindset growth but also how to increase sales for ones business. For those who thrive on online sales and live that laptop lifestyle like myself, she has created an amazing system of different strategies to maximize email and Instagram marketing and more.    

Monique never ceases to amaze and inspire me. I have known her since college and she is one of the most knowledgeable, successful, organized, smart, focused, determined, hard working people I’ve ever known. She exudes excellence and her business experience and credibility speaks for itself. She has been there from the start of my business cheering me on and providing me with endless motivation and advice that every boss girl needs! 

It has been a privilege to work with her and gain so much knowledge from her. If you’re looking for someone to bring actual value to your business goals that will undeniably yield results and profits I recommend scheduling a call with her! 

Nancy Phoenix | CEO & Founder at Status Industry

I didn’t have business experience when I first started my business, and with her guidance, I am more confident in myself and my abilities.

I have worked with Monique on several occasions and together we have established a strong personal and professional relationship. She is not only a mentor, but a friend that is genuinely interested in my professional growth. I didn’t have business experience when I first started my business, and with her guidance, I am more confident in myself and my abilities.  She gave me a better understanding of my “why” and how to proceed with the unknown when building my brand. 

I had the opportunity to work with Monique for a 60-minute growth hacking session. The time she spent with me was direct and to the point. She jumped right in and made sure every minute was spent effectively. We discussed different marketing strategies, various systems that generate connection, tips on how to sell with soul, and ways to provide powerful and relatable content. The information she provided was meaning and a was a foundation for growth in the online yoga industry. 

Without a doubt, Monique is a leader. She is dependable and great at her job. She is kind, genuine and respectful and makes talking about business, (a topic that is scary to many), seem so easy. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Monique’s guidance and couldn’t thank her enough.

Monique is a master of harmonizing all the noise in the coaching world, because she has actually performed and executed at the highest sales and leadership levels herself.

“As a top tier producer, leader, and national speaker in the financial services industry, I have only sought coaching from those who have achieved great things in their respective professions. Successful, open minded professionals want assurance that the people they surround themselves with are the “real deal”. That is why I endorse Monique Sar as a Coach for high performance and executive sales.

Monique has always epitomized the relentless pursuit of reaching her own highest potential, and has proven her credibility with actual business results. Monique was nationally recognized at a Fortune 100 company as one of the highest achieving young sales producers and leaders in the United States. I partnered with Monique, during her work in my industry, by employing shared staff with her for both of our personal sales practices, as well as co-mentoring a unit of 10+ junior advisors.

I personally witnessed Monique perennially lead the nation in number of volume product sales, as well as volume of new client acquisition. This is a direct testament to Monique’s qualification in the peak performance coaching space. Monique is a master of harmonizing all the noise in the coaching world, because she has actually performed and executed at the highest sales and leadership levels herself. Subscribe to one piece of her content and take one phone call from her, and you will confirm why I emphatically endorse her.”
