She did an amazing job at instantly making me 100% comfortable. Such a sweet woman who really knows her stuff. At the end of the reading I had felt like I got to know myself further than I ever had before as well as relief to have some personal questions answered. Jo Ann is incredible at what she does and I would recommend her to anyone. Love her!

When you decide to make a change, Tonya Sampson " my trainer", is only part of her label. She becomes your brand and that's the only way I can describe her. She's your life coach, sounding board, friend, sister, and that person that sometimes at 530 am has sunshine coming out of her bum and you want to punch but instead hug!! Because she's there for you!! She's changed my life to say the least. She always thinks of things that could motivate me, make me laugh when I want to cry, and just be a better person, not just physically but as a human being! It's not about the check in/out hour session for her when she is with you. She's personally invested in you and a cheerleader the whole time, whether you ask for it or not. ;) So having her as your trainer isn't what you get if you work with her. She treats you like you are literally her only client, is flexible, and has your best interest at heart at all times. She's a huge blessing in my life and honesty if you can pick... who wants some meathead trainer that could care less about you when you can have her?

Tony reached out to me about his business and work coaching services. I wasn't looking for an executive coach, rather a business coach to grow my profits. I was skeptical but Tony was persuasive. the first meeting went well and since then Tony has been working with me to grow my business in a positive way. He has been able to get me to think about things I would never think of. Those ah-ha moments have helped me grow my business more than anything else. If you are looking for help to right the ship, Tony is fantastic and would recommend him to any business owner or executive.

I have used Lisa's coaching services regularly in the past 5 years. I was very skeptical and confused on how life coaching could help me with the things that I struggled with, but after meeting with Lisa for the first time and doing this magical Wheel of Life, I felt more confident and clear about where I wanted to go in my life and career. Looking back now, Lisa helped me better understand my character strengths and interests and I was able to use this new knowledge to really understand what I wanted in life. My career and relationships took off since the time she started coaching me. Not only did she make me believe what was possible and helped me set goals, but also, she helped me organize a plan and strategy to achieve these goals. My thoughts are usually scattered and up in the air, it's a great feeling to have someone with her skills to bring it down to an actualized plan. I did not appreciate the value of coaching until I met Lisa and I truly recommend coaching for everyone. If you don't have a coach, she would be the one.

Trust The Process. Those are the words I think about when I look at how much Jesse has helped me. Coach, Guide, Mentor, these words seem small. When I met Jesse I was a lost, overweight, newly divorced woman with ambitions and goals but no direction. Jesse took the time to get to know the real me. With that knowledge he was able to set me in a direction I could both see and understand. Through his guidance I have lost my excess weight and successfully kept it off. I am now the CEO of a burgeoning Wellness Center and a working goat farm. Jesse heard me and created steps to help me succeed. The process of getting from where I was, to where I am today was made easier with the personal program Jesse set up for me.

John Carney was a great source of 'reason' for me in a time of chaos. He helped me to see beyond the fray, and focus on real-life issues. John brings a unique perspective that quickly differentiates undesirable symptoms from the root of the issue. I like to hit things head-on, and not waste time on incidentals. That's what John helped me to do! Can't say "THANK YOU" enough!

        Cory and I worked together for a few months and in that amount of time I was able to give my life a complete 180 degree turn. I found a job I love and am excelling quickly in the position, I moved into a home with people I respect and I'm excited to share a space with them over the next year, and I was able to strengthen my relationship and respect with myself and hold myself accountable to my short and long-term goals. Cory has given me many tools to use in times of stress and has given me the confidence to tackle all that lies ahead in my future with ease and grace. I am so grateful that I was able to work with her and would recommend her coaching to anyone who may feel lost or lacking control in their lives. She not only helped shed light on my strengths, but she let me see my ability to shine on my own.

            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.
