Coach Michelle was influential in me making a transition in my life. She is very compassionate but very truthful in her approach. When you are in crisis, you dont know what the plan should be or the first step to putting one together. She is very good at helpingyou with a plan and holding you accountable to it. IN the first meeting I felt hope and by the 4th meeting I felt empowered. My family begin to notice the transformation and I was much more fully present within my relationshipb. Most of all it was a great moment in my life to get to know me!
I could write a complete memoir around my experience with Fawn. Before I get into it, I want to be very straightforward: Fawn: -Incredibly smart with huge range of knowledge in counseling and resources -Infinitely compassionate -Super easy to talk to and considerate of me -My biggest cheerleader (I'm talking up there next to my mom) -Worth every penny Me: (and you, future client!) -Stuck / Confused / Unhappy -Willing to be utterly honest with Fawn and myself -Open to making big and small lifestyle changes -Committed to spend as much reasonable time on coaching exercises and reading -(4 months later) Crazy in love with myself and so proud to have embarked on this journey to create my HELL YES life I liken my experience with Fawn to be, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." (Buddha) I was in a really tough place in my life, feeling like I had no direction or even a compass to guide me. Fawn struck me with a phrase in her bio that said that she helps women who feel like they are stuck. I totally identified with that. I knew that something needed to change in my life. I originally reached out with the intent that it would be my career, but working with Fawn became so much more. With her guidance and support I have made incredible changes in my life, self-appreciation, discipline, relationships, spirituality, and happiness. We started unpacking the deepest of deep limiting beliefs that I had about myself. In no way would I describe this process as easy, but the payoff is oh so sweet. I have personal testimonies from the people around me (some of who don't know that I'm working with a coach) that recognize a change in my daily happiness. One of the MANY things I have loved about working with Fawn is her ability to zero in on what I need. She has incredible knowledge combined with a natural intuition of how to help her clients grow. Even if I didn't know what I would accomplish on a given call, it was her talent and expertise that helped me each step along the way. She introduced me to new methods of communication and taught me many exercises that I will continue to use whenever I am faced with challenging situations for the rest of my life. She also recommends great books :) Another area of note where I noticed a huge change in the course of my coaching with Fawn is my self-discipline. I was really struggling with accomplishing anything that felt like "work". (Outside of work.) I was a writer that hadn't written in years and through my personalized action items (or assignments) I began a very therapeutic return to my art. I also started creating a schedule and setting goals for myself. Over time, the result and accomplishment of doing the "work" totally outweighed the dread that hovers around procrastination. I was able to change a really bad habit that I specifically identified in the beginning of this journey. I have a remarkable amount of quantifiable self-improvement in my google docs that I am so proud of. I have to second another review I saw saying if "you're wondering whether or not to take the plunge..." DO IT. Your life is about to change.
I needed to update my résumé and a cover letter to distinguish myself from the competition. I asked Fred to help me with this task and he responded promptly. He also helped me with my career goals to clarify my targets and to foresee any other additional possibilities. I enjoyed his work style and the results were outstanding. I less than 2 weeks I got hired.
I reached out to Claudia to help me with my career in business development and sales. After my first session with Caludia I already started feeling and seeing the positive results in my career and my personal life. I am excited to seeing my results as my therapy continues with her.
A few things brought me to the Pasadena. After an 18 month long hiatus from sprint triathlons, a change in career and relocating to Pasadena, my search for a new trainer started. I plugged into Thumbtack and interviewed some candidates, then I found Tommy. What a find!! He's experienced, educated, motivating and understands my ultimate goal in my sport. I came in with a slight injury and his rehabilitative exercises are effective and yet making me stronger and faster. His dedication to what he does exudes through his training. He identifies and encourages me to push. Any athlete could increase their athleticism and talent when working with Tommy. Everything you want to know about your functioning body, nutrition, supplements, etc., he knows it. His patience is endless. I've trialed other trainers, but the rapport was lacking in attentiveness and follow through. 100% present every time. A life investment worth every minute. I feel confident that my goals will be reached working with Tommy Houck.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Elenie Opffer for the past month. This year I decided to make a transition professionally into a slightly different field of work. After updating my resume I realized I was rusty and out of practice with my interview skills. Elenie and her professional expertise have helped me articulate my strengths and skills and confidently transform them into responses to some of the toughest interview questions. Taking her professional advice on recorded mock interview exercises and giving me feedback on my cover letters has allowed me to stand out beyond my competition. Her professional insight and coaching has prepared me to be a more confident and refined professional. Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Elenie. The amount of value you receive from her knowledge and detailed coaching will allow you to be the polished professional companies seek.
For career minded individuals Emma offers a compelling mix of openness, strong listening and understanding skills, with proven business acumen; in short she understands the world you are operating in. Furthermore, Emma has a lovely way of getting to the heart of this issue (root rather than the symptoms) and keeping you focused on reaching your potential with a strong action plan. I highly recommend working with Emma.
I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.
I've worked with Julie on everything from career, and relationships, to weight loss and finances. Her Coaching is always spot on and to the point. We have used various mediums and modalities to get me to the Next Level, such as "The Wish", Young Living Essential Oil sprays, and Energy work. I go to Julie FIRST with any big decisions and issues when I find myself stuck. She's your All-Purpose GURU for getting yourself out of your own way. Thank you Julie for never letting me lose traction with my PURPOSE!
I've hired MJ in the past for consultation and career services. He is without a doubt the best man for the job. His years of experience in the camp world, in addition to his practical-problem-solving outlook makes him the perfect addition to your team whether you are starting a new venture or looking to rope in what you've already got in front of you. MJ helped me go from "not sure where to advertise" to "I need help managing all these bookings!" He traveled to me with concise ideas of how he could help. I look forward to having another reason to hire him!
Greg was super helpful in guiding me through the steps from a working at a startup to now a small business owner. He not only helped me make careful but smart career decisions, he also helped me package myself and my idea in front of the investors. I needed much help with business modeling, financial modeling, and pitch deck compilation, and Greg taught me all in the most efficient way possible. I would not have been able to raise the funds I needed and be where I am without Greg today.
Miriam has been coaching my family and I for the last year. It has opened up a whole new world for me, not only in my personal and family life, but in my business and career. Miriam has helped me set certain goals, and has been there for me every step of the way until they were achieved with tremendous success. With both my children being coached as well, it has lifted their self esteem, and today are thriving academically and socially. I highly recommend Miriam. Her trustworthy nature, sensitivity, and strong skills will give you the tools to have your life transformed to the levels you always dreamed of. I know my life changed for the best, thanks to her! For that, I am forever grateful!
Mel's insight and encouragement helped me battle through a seriously bleak period i went through this past winter/spring. I went to Mel at a time when I was facing obstacles that I thought I just couldn't overcome and i didn't know where else to turn. I was in the midst of a health crisis, was laid off from my job, dealing relationship issues that left me feeling worthless an depressed, and dealing with difficult family members. I literally thought all was lost. Mel listened to me with the warmth and compassion of a dear friend, but also challenged me to go to those dark places and gain awareness of my patterns and "stories" that kept me in this ugly self-defeating cycle. Through her eloquently put insight and encouragement, I left every session feeling empowered with a realistic plan of attack. Armed with the tools Mel taught me, I feel like I have matured beyond what i ever thought possible for myself and gained an invaluable sense of awareness that i consciously continue to build. Im very happy to report that i feel like I have made it through the worst time in my life so far. Its been a long rollercoaster of a journey, but Im physically and emotionally on the mend, and i am embarking on a very exciting career opportunity. I am sure that this new adventure would not be in my life were it not for the amazing growth I went through via life coaching. I intend to make working on building my awareness and opening consciousness a lifelong pursuit. Its hard to imagine such powerful wisdom coming from someone you'd just as easily hang out at happy hour with, but Mel is a rare gem who possesses wisdom well beyond her years. As I have gotten to know her more through the Raise Your State community, I have seen her candidly battle through her own difficult journeys. If you are lucky enough maybe one day she'll tell you her story. For me personally, It has been an amazing thing to witness this transformation in her, and even more incredible to see her come out the other side wanting to dive back into the depths to help other young people who are feeling just as lost. She is not only a life coach to me but and endless source of inspiration and light.
I am writing to offer my strong recommendation of Kathy Norton as your advisor and coach in obtaining guidance through the hiring process of employment. Kathy was able to take my former resume and key in on my skills and abilities. With her vast experience in her writing and analytical skills, she was able to convey the important requirements of the job specifications into my resume. She gave me a story that gave me the confidence I was seeking for in the interviewing process. Through her coaching abilities, I was able to convey to the employer that I was a strong candidate for the position. With my old resume and lack of interviewing skills, I had been in search of a new career for over a month. Now with my new resume in hand, and her coaching skills, I have obtained a new career that is a great fit for my employer and myself. In sum, Kathy is an exceptional advisor, a hard working individual who will always go the extra mile for you. I am so grateful to have had Kathy as my advisor and coach. Sincerely, Janine R. Goldman
Tish has been great to work! She's very knowledgeable about how to expand my network and has good connections in lots of different fields. I would definitely recommend her as a career coach.
Randy Moraitis has been my coach through a difficult divorce and subsequent career change. He has the ability to focus in on the areas I most need help with and then works with me to create a realistic plan to effectively move toward and achieve my goals. He listens well and is fully present each time I meet with him, which is highly important to me. As a result of his coaching I was able to navigate my divorce and heal more quickly than I would have without his knowledge and guidance. I continue to work with him to further articulate my career path and how it ties in with my life purpose. Randy is continually furthering his own skills and knowledge through continuing education, which gives me further confidence in his abilities and his heart to bring his best to his clients. Without reservation, I give Randy Moraitis my highest recommendation.
April Fletcher has helped me immensely over the last year rediscovering what I want to do with myself and and my career. I've gone from feeling like I should let go of my musical talents and career to really cherishing them and focusing on how to get involved in the scene again. How does she do this? Well... She is a great listener - She'll let me say all the different things I need to get off my chest without judgment. After I've vented out my ideas and feelings, she offers her super-powered support and encouragement. I know that if I talk with April, I am going to feel better about my situation and motivated to go out and get things done. And she's very creative in the activities she suggests I do to reach my goals. It will range from really pushing myself, to taking it a few notches down and listening to my undercurrent - meditation - taking me time. She is a positive force in my life. I highly recommend her services!
Tracy is one of the wisest and most clear-headed people I have ever worked with. Her ability to see not only the problem at hand but also a myriad of solutions is what makes her such a gifted coach. I live in NY but do my sessions with Tracy on the phone. Speaking with her always brightens my week and helps me move forward with my goals. She has helped me to build the confidence I need alongside a working plan that helps me both build and achieve my goals. She is patient, kind, and full of intelligence and understanding. Working with Tracy is a truly life changing experience. Invaluable as far as I'm concerned. I could not recommend her highly enough.

What makes me standout is that I have spent 30 plus years in personal development going through decades of personal spiritual training and every imaginable kind of bodywork and therapy.
