Professor Lunsford was my Statistics teacher at the University of South Florida. I also went to him for private tutoring. He explained concepts to me in way that was easy for me to understand. Dr. Lunsford is very knowledgeable and an outstanding educator. He made learning a lot of fun and showed genuine concern for his students. He always was passionate about his career and it showed. I wish all professors and tutors were more like him! I graduated in 2011 and live in Washington State. Even on the opposite side of the country he has been a wonderful mentor!

I first meet John Bruno when I was a junior in college. He was the martial arts and strength and conditioning coach at the time. He is very knowledgeable about both subjects. Part of earning his respect is remembering that if you ask him to teach you, you are the ignorant one so listen and try to do what he says. He can seem pushy at times but he does care about those he teaches. If he hadn't pushed me I would've never exceeded my own expectations. In some ways I think he may have believed in me more than I did in myself and for that I am thankful.

I've been working with T.Jae for over two months now, and I'm grateful for his perspective every day! He started as my Business Coach; we soon realized as a micro-business owner business and life are more-or-less the same. Now, he helps me with all parts: clients, motivation, self-esteem, relationships, and my crazy blended family. After working with T.Jae: • I have become aware of what I need in situations to keep me grounded. • I can stand up for myself/my needs in stressful situations. • I can have level-headed, actual conversations with my husband. • I have found a direction with my work, and I'm proudly working my business. I admit, not every day is perfect. I do fall back into old patterns. I do curl up in a ball and hide. I get overwhelmed and negative. BUT, they last a fraction of the time they use to. When I do fall off the wagon, T.Jae is always right there for me. Ready to listen and helps me work through my feelings. He has never made me feel wrong, insignificant or stupid. Instead, he gives me reassurance, gives me a new perspective, helps me create an inner strength. I am happy to continue working with T.Jae to see what more I can get out of life! I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to be a stronger, more giving, complete person.

Nichole M (Proud USMC Wife) said... I have known Jihan for several years. We initially met at work and quickly became friends. Even though she is only a couple years older then me, I look up to her and feel like she is not just a friend, she is an amazing person! She has the best advice and outlook on absolutely any topic you can throw her way. She is understanding and forgiving and kind. I can't say enough good things about her. Even though she has officially booked her second client, I would say she has had impact on hundreds of people and has been a life coach all along! I love you girl and so lucky to know you! You have absolutely helped me more then I could ever explain!

Roxie is great. She does not waist your time. She does her best to get to the heart of the matter, then works with you to set up a game plan for success, as well as hold you accountable to execute the plan. I love that she provides a warm and inviting atmosphere and always welcomes you with a smile. I would recommend Roxie to anyone who needs a little guidance to get on or back on the right track.

    What they did for me was to radically change the direction of my professional life into something of meaning and purpose and the ability to earn money doing what I love to do! This, in turn, contributed to my personal life and made me realize how able and talented I am and have been for some time. They helped me clarify my passions, purposes and skills in ways I had not previously considered and that made a huge difference! Thanks!

    I am very pleased that attended a course with Marina Piantanida. I did not just listen to lectures. I worked with homework, practice and assignments. I've heard and seen before, but the difference between theory and practice is huge. When you not only read, watch and listen to, but try to act it, and you see the reaction of the people to your actions, you get the desire to introduce this skill in your daily life. And the growing belief in that you are able to do all. You gain strength and excitement. In addition, listening Marina’s clear instructions, you begin to see and understand your own mistakes. Thank U!

    My life aligns with my practice. I lead with my heart, not what I've learned from textbooks or training.


    At some point when you were a child, you knew what you wanted to be when you grew up. You played for hours doing things that you loved. Now, you are all grown up, and life is not quite the same. You have some unanswered questions: What do I do with my life? What is my passion? Why am I not fulfilled? How do I find my dream job? Well, I am here to tell you that those things that you wanted as a child really are the key to your dreams and is the most important starting place to finding the answers to these questions. If you have some of these or similar questions, then you are in the right place. You may feel you want more, or you have come to realize that you should be doing something else with your life, but you are not quite sure what. Maybe you have an inkling about what you want, but you lack the tools or strategies you need to move forward. Taking some time to investigate your childhood activities and past times will give you access to the things that you are passionate about. You never actually lose these passions; you just get off course. What is life coaching? "Coaching is an on-going partnership that helps clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life. Beginning with the clients' desires, coaching uses reporting, exploring, and a consistent commitment to move the client forward. Coaching accelerates the clients' progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are today and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be tomorrow." - International Coach Federation, ICF Life Coaching is all about helping people get from where they are in their life to where they want to get to. If everyone is being honest with themselves, I think we could all do with improving an area or two of our lives. Rather than actually telling someone the answers, a life coach is the catalyst for getting a client to find the answers themselves. By asking challenging and thought-provoking questions, a life coach can unlock the potential in a client. Coaching is forward looking and focused on the action you are willing to take to get what you want out of life. Sometimes, you just can't see the wood for the trees!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a career coach?

    If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

    • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
    • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
    • Defining your career goals
    • Creating a plan for job searching
    • Improving networking strategies and skills
    • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
    • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
    • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

    Why is career counseling important?

    Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

    • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
    • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
    • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
    • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
    • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
    • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
    • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

    How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

    A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.

    How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

    When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

    What is a career counselor?

    If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

    Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.
