Introduction: My mission is to help you maximize your influence, impact and income in spite of the obstacles in your way. Without sacrificing your purpose or your passion. To help you consistently show up as the most EPIC version of yourself. I call it the EPIC YOU Formula and tracking system and it has not only changed the trajectory of my own life but now the lives of hundreds of my clients as you can see from the testimonials. My goal is to help you quickly and consistently remove the things that are preventing you from being able to relax into professional and personal joy and success -- those things that will continue to keep you stuck in paralyzing cycles of low self-esteem, worry and self-doubt unless you commit to making some critical changes. If you just need help with your interview skills, it might take only 2 sessions, but if you will give me 90 days or more of your best focus and commitment, these strategies will absolutely transform your life. Personally, professionally and yes, even financially. I have seen it over and over. “The best investment you can make is in yourself.”- Warren Buffett When facing obstacles that seem unsurmountable, we tend to get stuck in our own blind spots unless we get help. My mission is to help you not only learn how to excel professionally but to help you learn in the process how to rewire your mind for consistent fulfillment, recognition, security and success -- so that you can finally focus on enjoying life and in the process unleash the most EPIC version of you personally AND professionally! Top Mindset Optimal Performance Life and Career Coach / Epic Performance Strategist/ Corporate Trainer and Inspirational-Motivational Speaker/ Expert in GRIT and Resilience/ Powerhouse Entrepreneur / Bestselling Author / COACHING EXCLUSIVELY VIA ZOOM / Not Cheap But As You Can See From the Testimonials I Get Results [If you are interested in my motivational speaking for keynote, small group or virtual speaking events, please visit my Meridith Alexander web site or my dedicated Meridith Alexander Thumbtack speaking profile. The following is focused on my coaching services.] Would you describe yourself right now as feeling stuck or overwhelmed? Do you feel like the years and months are ZOOMING BY with little to show for it? Like you’re missing your purpose and just going through the day without much passion or purpose? Are you aching for change -- just not sure how to do that? Are you ready and willing to stop tinkering with bandaid "coping skills" and invest in a new path, one that is validated by others many of whom who started this journey feeling as nervous and skeptical as perhaps you are? Are you willing to accept that the trial and error approach or the infinite chain of "Plan B's" will not only waste valuable time and money but will probably lead to a similar place of frustrating "stuckness" six months for now? And are you ready to concede that if you could fix whatever is holding you back on your own that you would have solved the problem by now? Is the change that you desire valuable enough to you that you will take what might feel like a financial leap of faith in order to achieve it? If your answer is not "yes", my program is not for you. And if your answer IS yes, get ready for a journey that is definitely not a "cheap" investment but one that will change the way that you live your life going forward beginning in the very first session AND one that will help you earn money doing what you love in the process. Your mission -- should you choose to accept it -- is to learn how to blast through those barriers, identify your next step forward and create a crystal clear bullet-proof 90-Day action plan for unleashing your superpowers and creating a life that you love. Beginning... right...now! SCROLL DOWN FOR PRICING AND PACKAGES. (Favor: Please do check my pricing before reaching out because Thumbtack does charge me rather heftily when you reach out to me. And remember, because my mission is to serve clients nationally, I coach exclusively via Zoom. Thank you!) Do you know that 96% of all people never even start working on their big goals? Why? Because they're too afraid to get started. They're afraid that what they really want is "impossible". Well, guess what? Studies also show that 76% of us will die regretting that we didn't stay true to ourselves. That we let others' expectations define us. Those are two pretty scary statistics. And there's only one way to change that. Start taking better actions beginning today. If you are reading this because you are feeling stuck, because you know that you are ready to invest in some powerful positive changes in your life and you're having trouble getting results on your own, let's hop onto a complimentary FIND MY POWERFUL FUTURE NOW strategy call. I can help you CLEARLY IDENTIFY the things that have been tripping you up, help you REBOOT them and then help you to UNLEASH the best version of you out into the world with TANGIBLE RESOURCES AND STRATEGIES. You see, what drives me (you might call it my MISSION) is helping you begin to realize the potential that previously might even have seemed impossible. Things that have been hiding in your blind spots --usually for decades. This is not basic "accountability coaching" (although we do set up finish lines and hold you accountable...wink!) Quite frankly, I am not as interested in seeing you take "busy" action as I am in seeing you accomplish results -- especially the results that on your own might not have seemed feasible. After all, Einstein even observed that you can't solve a problem with the same mind that created it so when you hire me, we become a team with one mission: your progress and ultimate success. In transition in the corporate world? If you are here because you are ready to find a job that you love waking up to or because you want to FINALLY secure that promotion or next step forward that has been eluding you, be sure to ask me about my BECOME A "JOB WINNING NINJA" program. And if you feel a bit weak in interviews and you know that your LinkedIn profile is anything BUT irresistible, this program is DEFINITELY FOR YOU. Simply reach out to me and we can set up a complimentary strategy call right away. That program specifically targets how to Identify your Dream Job Superpower, Convey Your Perfect Fit In an Irresistible LinkedIn profile and Become a Master at Acing your Interviews in (yep) less than 4 hours. Whether your desire is to go further in the corporate world, reinvent yourself more powerfully on a personal level or launch a business that gives you the fulfillment that you crave, providing you the missing link to go from "wishing for change" to creating change is my unwavering promise to you! And not just any change. A positive, deliberate change that helps you begin to fall back in love with your life -- personally and professionally. I'm committed to helping you see a level of potential within yourself you might not even know has existed. Or, you simply never knew how to tap into. Much more than work/life balance, I want you to achieve your ultimate work/ PASSION balance where you are rocking your world thanks to the stories and (yes) greatness that is uniquely you. I'm Meridith Alexander. And Just A Few Years Ago, I was more than stuck. I was facing the impossible. A boulder had left my 22-year old daughter in a wheelchair with a traumatic brain injury requiring 24/7 care. I was doing my best to learn how to be her caregiver. The 4 months in the ICU at Schuyler's side had almost destroyed my business. And I remember sitting at my office desk wondering how on Earth I would be able to pay my bills? As you can imagine, it was really hard to stay positive. And I certainly was feeling anything but "epic"! I remembered when I first got the call. Schuy was in a small hospital in South America. Three heroic doctors were fighting to keep her alive. I hopped onto a plane completely engulfed in what felt like the perfect storm of emotions. Anger. Grief. Despair. Fear. But by far, the worst of all was feeling powerless. There was nothing that I wanted more than to help my daughter. I sat there zooming through the night sky at 30,000 feet when it struck me. I may not be able to control the outer game but I sure as heck could play a mean inner game. You see, I had always been fascinated by the people who emerged from great challenges absolutely epic. And specifically how they did this. I realized that I had gotten a great education but one key piece had been missing. How to learn to live. How to show up as the best version of yourself. Regardless of the chaos that might be surrounding you. Those questions lead me to study the core elements of our inner game. Ancient philosophy. Plato. Socrates. Lao Tzu. Eastern religion. Western religion. Personal Development. Spirituality. I studied energy, the science of the mind and neuro linguistic programming. The eastern arts of Tai Chi and Japan's AIKIDO. I became an avid student of Abraham Hicks and the Law of Attraction. So yes, for my daughter's sake, I said, "GAME ON!" I was ready to play the most masterful inner game of my life. I had to win! All of this chatter about the power of our minds was either real or it wasn't. And I was about to find out. Never in my entire life had the stakes felt higher. I began to apply the inner game strategies and techniques that I now share in my coaching and training. My mindset became like titanium. And the results began to reflect that. Things that were textbook "impossible" became our reality. And just a few weeks later, doctors were calling us the miracle family. So yes, we did win! Almost exactly 4 months after that boulder struck, Schuy was officially released from the hospital. Schuy had survived the unsurvivable. The "impossible" had become our "I'm Possible". That's when the G.R.I.T. Formula was born. I began marrying what I had learned about the inner game to my outer game and everything changed! Clearly I was on my way to getting not only out of this abyss but to a place where I could actually wake up exhilarated by the day ahead. My formula was working! And it was working well! People began to notice. And eventually, people began to ask me to coach. To teach. G.R.I.T. Mindset Academy was born. I had discovered my calling. My passion. My purpose. And I had discovered that I could indeed thrive doing what I love. It felt almost magical. Most rewarding of all was that I had discovered that I could teach these skills to others. And literally be there watching the transformation as they went from stuck to thriving. Clients began referring other clients and the re-enrollments went through the roof. It was quite a milestone. And yet, it was just the beginning of great things to come. So today, not only has this formula allowed me to create the life that I love and fulfill my promise to the Universe, it is now transforming the lives of my clients all around the world! Every single testimonial reminds me why I'm doing what I'm doing and why I love what I do. And I firmly believe that all of this can be possible for YOU too. With a formula that incorporates some of the most high impact strategies from neuro science, top business mentors and "inner game masters" ranging from Tony Robbins to Esther Hicks, this process is much more than simply upgrading your resumé and interview skills (although I help you with those too). Yes, this process definitely teaches you the "how" (based on the "how" that is right for you). Whether your focus is on a promotion, a new job, a side hustle, a passion or a completely new YOU, I quickly realized one HUGE pitfall that virtually everyone was making: in their quest to find the Easy Button, people were skipping over the ONE THING .... Where most people are stuck ISN'T where they think that they are stuck. Yep. REALLY! They were stuck in a pattern of blindspot thinking which inevitably lead to consistently feeling stuck, overwhelmed, frustrated, insecure, filled with self doubt --- the list goes on and on. In other words, it creates a pattern of turning you into your own worst enemy. Think that's inevitable? Normal? Let's think again. Better yet. Let's change it. Beginning today. Get ready for the journey that will help you wake up feeling virtually bulletproof, excited to face your day, ready to achieve things that previously might have seemed impossible -- and in the process, help you to positively and powerfully impact the world.

I did a single session with Meridith to go over interview techniques and skills, and chose a single session just to get a feel for coaching and where it fits in my life. I am so happy I did. She gave me great talking points and helped me come up with genuine answers to those hard and uncomfortable interview questions. I was very happy for all the help!

This has been one of those experiences that changes everything! I’ve just had a handful of session so far, but I can already tell that Im feeling stronger and extremely encouraged! Motivation is up! Energy is up! Confidence is up! And best of all, my daily joy and thankfulness is changing the way I see my successes. My husband and kids are also very excited to see this version of me. I have been a stay at home mom for 14+ years and have always carried with me some big personal dreams! Meridith is helping me cut a new path to finally making those dreams a reality! I’m learning the tools and rediscovering my passions that will take me into the next stage of life. I did a lot of research on available coaching, therapy, etc … and I’m pleased to say, the 5 star reviews are true! Meridith is extremely talented and has a special gift of helping others see the value in themselves. With practical solutions and thought provoking discussions, she is truly helping me turn my fears into determination! I will be forever thankful for this experience! Meridith is a true gem!

Meridith it truly a professional when it comes to coaching for interviews. She gave me a wealth of insight, and also a very positive and unique approach! I am now much more confident, and was quickly able to recognize some of the things that I needed improvement on, after we went through my two sessions. I am really excited with what I have learned, and have been using my new techniques every day - with some pretty amazing results! I highly recommend Meridith for interview coaching! You will really enjoy working with her!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing depends on whether client is looking for keynote, breakout sessions, coaching or customized events. Please contact me with more information to discuss budget. I have competitive pricing for packages as well as for individual events and/or services.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We will start out with a consultation where we can familiarize ourselves with the client's needs and goals. From there, we will create a structure with timeline and system for achieving those goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My formal education took place at Phillips Exeter Academy and Georgetown University where I focused on languages and diplomacy. I began my career in the food and hospitality industry. I loved the business and only left it because my jewelry making "hobby" evolved into a business before my very eyes. When I became a mother, I helped my father with the marketing and branding for his talent agency. Three decades later, I have written millions of dollars in contracts for my own performing arts agency and helped numerous artists perform on stages from Las Vegas to Hawaii to Mexico and beyond. I have focused on personal development for decades. I am certified in coaching, training, mastermind, gamification and neuro-linguistic programming through Success Resources, one of the largest personal development companies in the world. My hands on experience came when my daughter was crushed by a boulder in 2016. Doctors credit my deliberate mindset with dramatically impacting the outcome of her treatment. They call us the miracle family. To this day, my daughter continues to relearn everything from walking to talking. We smile. We laugh and we are by no means defined by any perceived limitation of our circumstances.
