Liz has been my personal trainer for the last 5 months. I love working with her, the sessions are tailored to my needs and goals I've set out to reach. Liz comes up with a plan to help her clients get there. She motivates me to give it my best, and in such a positive demeanor. Since working with Liz I have seen the biggest changes month to month regarding my weight, inches and body fat percentage, all dropping significantly. Her whole outlook and attitude have really helped me not only at the gym but at home. I think of Liz as I decide between having a healthy dinner or a box dinner. I finally feel like I've made a lifestyle change thanks to Liz. This is what I wanted and needed.

Verified review

My coaching experience through Fluid Leadership has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! Attending these coaching sessions helped me through one of the most trying times of my life. These sessions helped me to discover what is most important to me and to pursue the life I want to live. My life coach, Lawrence Ellison, used methods that empowered me to search my heart for the dreams that I had allowed circumstances and fear to bury. By actively participating and doing the assignments, I graduated from the reactive to the creative and have started paving my way to a fulfilling life. As a result of these sessions, I am now pursuing my passion for a career in music. Fear no longer has me bound, I’m taking control of my life. Thank you Fluid Leadership, for your guidance has given me the courage I needed to make the necessary steps to live an abundant life. I’m thankful!

    Three hours flew by during my conversation with Maggy, and in that brief time we were able to uncover some critical aspects of my personality that had been inhibiting me from moving forward. Furthermore, we highlighted and aligned my goals and morals to make decisions clear, allowing me to move forward with confidence, lifting a huge weight off my shoulders. During our consultation, Maggy was able to tap into who I was as a person and as a professional allowing me to be fully open and express things about myself that I had not previously acknowledged. Working with Maggy was a huge help during a transitional period in my life.

    Leslie’s approach to life-coaching is completely unique and it works. She gets to the heart of the matter, quickly and effectively with an approachable and formidable style. Her personal experience and deep understanding produced new insights that for me, were invaluable. The wisdom in Leslie’s coaching was key in gaining new vision and moving people through cloudy areas of their life. A key foundation to her success in life coaching is her engaging and active listening skills and ability to identify areas for improvement in a supportive way. I reached out to Leslie for assistance with achieving greater balance in my life as I was juggling five children, a potential career, and managing my own life. I highly recommend Leslie as a Life Coach, she is easy to talk to, honest, direct and has a great sense of humor.

    I had the honor of working under Kristen Crockett when she was a Trainer and Consultant for College Summit. Kristen has the ability to coach, mentor, and guide in a way that really brought out my leadership skills, confidence, and fearlessness as a facilitator, speaker, and professional. She understands the most critical strengths someone needs to enhance, in order to take their leadership and boldness to the next level. At the same time, she delicately but consistently tackles an individual's professional challenges in a way that allows growth both personally and professionally through her coaching and mentorship. My experience working under Kristen's training and coaching allowed me to excel, gain directorship positions, and eventually have enough boldness, confidence, and discipline to start and grow a successful business. I would highly recommend her as a speaker, trainer, or coach.

Our team of professionals is comprised of military veterans, business executives, leaders of Government, and people with specialized skills (such as adventuring, craftsmanship, flying, etc).

We thoroughly enjoy helping people and companies achieve their strategic and tactical goals. Their success is our success. Providing problem solving skills sounds easy, yet it is one of the most miss-understood, and under utilized life skills of most people. We pride ourselves on having a very select group of teammates focused on your success.

    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

    What is a life coach?

    A professional, accredited life coach works with people to help them make important changes in their life, either growing in their profession or changing gears in their personal lives. They help clients turn their dreams or wishes into realistic, attainable goals. They guide people through the process of making life changes by helping them evaluate the steps they must take to reach a particular goal, then help them decide how — and whether — to take those steps in the most efficient, effective and rewarding way possible. A life coach acts as a motivator, strategist and accountability partner. Unlike a therapist, a life coach doesn’t help solve problems from your past — they’re focused on helping you move forward with new ways of acting and thinking that will help you reach your goals. Some people specialize in particular types of life coaching, including life balancing coaches, small business coaches, executive coaches and personal finance coaches. Some meet clients in person, while others hold consultations over the phone.

    Regardless of which type of life coach you’re interested in, make sure the person holds an International Coach Federation (ICF) credential. There are three tiers of credentials: Associate, Professional and Master, which require coaching experience ranging from 100 hours to 2,500 hours.

    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 a life coach cost?

    A life coach helps clients set and reach professional and personal goals, develop positive habits, and deal with stress. Some people meet with a life coach once or twice, while others form an ongoing professional relationship, meeting regularly in person or on the phone. The average national cost to meet with a life coach ranges from $80 to $130 an hour. Some coaches offer per-session pricing, especially for one-time meetings; expect to pay an average of $100-$125. People who want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, career growth or lifestyle changes may be able to get discounted pricing in a package. For example, three 60-minute sessions cost an average of $300, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $350, and four 60- to 90-minute sessions plus unlimited contact between sessions cost an average of $400. Some specific types of coaching, such as relationship or marriage coaching, cost more than standard life coaching. For instance, three 60-minute relationship coaching sessions cost an average of $500, four 60-minute sessions cost an average of $550, and six 60- to 90-minute sessions cost an average of $650 when purchased as a package. Training and experience can also affect the cost of hiring a life coach. An Associate Certified Coach, who holds a certification that requires only 60 hours of training and 100 hours of coaching experience, will charge less than a Master Certified Coach, who typically has at least 200 hours of training and 2,500 hours of coaching experience.   

    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.
