I don't even know where to begin. Prior to meeting Michelle, I had no idea what a life coach was. All I knew was that I was stuck and I needed a bit more guidance in my life and that's when my cousin recommended her to me. Michelle is beyond amazing. When I first met her she gave me her book and her workbook. These tools, along with her, helped me through my whole process. I was able to self reflect more and change my way of thinking. She's helped me have courage to do some of the scariest things I could never imagine myself doing. She's helped better direct my life to where I want to go and open to my eyes to my own truths. She has a passsion for what she does and it truly shows in her work. There's never any judgment and she's able to share her toughest experiences . Michelle has an amazing heart and only has the best intentions. I admire her strength the most. I'm extremely grateful for her guidance and highly recommend her as a life coach.
If you're like me, you're reading this wondering if you should take the plunge. While each situation is unique, I gotta say... DO IT! If you have the means and could use guidance in any aspect of your life, absolutely dive in. Fawn is incredible. I've been working with her for over a month now and I've seen so many significant changes in my life, changes that wouldn't have been possible without Fawn's support and knowledge. I contacted Fawn when I decided I needed a more hands on approach to improving my outlook and my habits. What I've achieved in my short time with her is far greater than I ever expected. I come away from our sessions more positive, more motivated, and refreshed. Her meticulous handling of each session, her ability to listen with an intent to understand, her check-ins, and her resource sharing is so intuitive. She knows because she's been there. Her scheduling system is wonderfully easy, which is especially helpful when dealing with different time zones. She utilizes Google Docs for session notes, which I love! I can carry my progress in my pocket. Fawn does an amazing job laying out a path at the beginning of coaching, but she also knows when to make adjustments. Much like life, you can only prepare so much before you have to simply run with what you've been given. I love that each conversation feels like catching up with a wise friend I've known for years, all while aspects of my goals are starting to fall into place. I'm incorporating her suggested action items in a way I've never been able to do before: effortlessly and optimistically. I'm gushing, but so what? One thing we touch on so often--and for good reason--is gratitude. I'm so grateful to have found Fawn and I can't wait to see where the remainder of our sessions lead.
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.
Pedro is an amazing life coach who's guidance has been unparalleled. He is extremely honest, loving, and full of confidence. I highly recommend Pedro to anyone looking for some help navigating through a difficult part of life.
I had the pleasure of having Harry serve as my Life Coach for three months. I found him to be quite insightful and direct. I truly appreciated is capacity to connect with me and offer wonderful guidance and support as I made the desire changes in my life. I strongly recommend Harry as a Coach.
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 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!
Judy’s program is so valuable in every way. I felt it was a very essential program for everyone in whatever stage of life to take a pause and reassess and refresh. Judy ISN the real jewel behind it. She brings an energy and enthusiasm to every call. She helps you see things you may not have seen yourself with each weeks work, and is able to personalize the material to each client. I have referred her to Teo close friendship who also rave about how fundamentally important and life’s changing the programs are. Judy is part coach, part psychologist, part mentor, part everything. She really brings so much insight and experience. I loved this program and her guidance in making it a part of my life.
Randy Powell has assisted me in clarifying my vision, provided me with steps to take to achieve my life's goal. Not only has he helped me figure out what my vision is, he also provides guidance on what is blocking me from moving forward. He has given me encouragement throughout my time working with him. He has also helped me empower myself with my purpose and stand in my own individuality. I reccomned Randy Powell's services to anyone who wants to achieve their dreams and be successful at it. I am truly grateful to have Mr. Powell as my life coach. I could not have made it this far in my journey without his motivation, positive energy and his WANT for me to be as successful as I want to be.
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
My role as a board member with Pronet Career Resources, a support group for unemployed professionals, is to find speakers that can assist the members in developing the skills needed to obtain a new position in the workforce. Michael stepped right up and offered his services. The information and personal involvement was tremendous and the members who attended Mike's talks and trainings were simply blown away by his presentation. Everyone was impressed with his enthusiasm and professionalism. I have also had the pleasure of recommending Michael as a speaker for a networking group of business owners. His presentation hit the mark for the attendees on how to improve themselves and their businesses. Mike is a great coach and a great speaker. Any company or organization would do well to have Michael as a featured speaker to help reach their goals and objectives.
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.
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.
Just wanted to give a shout out to Celia! We've been working together for a few weeks now and it's exactly what I needed. After a few years of major changes, I was feeling pretty overwhelmed and couldn't seem to get back on track on my own. Celia has been great about helping to set goals with food and money, writing resume/cover letters and in general not allowing me to beat myself about totally normal feelings. I feel better than I have in months! So thank you Celia and if anyone else is feeling the pressure of life and needs a little guidance, I highly recommend reaching out to her.
