MY CLIENTS SAY:
"I found out about Angela through my wife who follows her on LinkedIn, and at first I was a little skeptical that there would be someone that could make me think differently about the circumstances I was in. I didn’t think anyone who was not actively helping me look for a job would actually be able to help me at all. I decided to start working with Angela because nothing else I was doing was working and knew I needed to change my way of thinking in order to change my reality. I knew that I wanted to give it a try if I wanted to be successful. Coaching with Angela helped me realize even more that it didn’t matter what job I got, it was more important to be in the right headspace so I could get the right job.
"I came to Angela feeling overwhelmed with finding a job in the job market and was feeling like I didn’t have a lot to offer and that I needed to just take the first job because why would anyone hire me. Now, I know more of what I have to offer now and that I can have more of a say in what type of jobs I have or where I work and don’t have to just accept what comes to me. I know I can find the perfect job for me anytime. I may have already found it where I am now, but I also know that it is available to me in any setting at any time. I have that power. I recommend other people work with Angela, especially people who aren’t feeling confident about their skills or finding a job because she creates a comfortable environment where I feel open to share even the most personal things, which are important for this process. She doesn’t just try to give people answers, she gives me tools to figure out answers for myself. I find myself looking forward to my calls with Angela each week."

"I decided to get coaching with Angela because her messages on LinkedIn resonated more and more with me until I got to a point where I felt sure that it would be a good experience. I was in a place where I knew I needed something that I couldn’t put my finger on exactly, but it was getting in the way of a lot of things. Through working with Angela and now, while there are still going to be difficulties and challenges, I feel more grounded in how to go through everything. I feel like I have this tree that I know it’s there that I can hang on to. I recommend coaching with Angela to other people if they are in the right place to accept the change in their lives and how they view their response to the world. It’s a commitment but it is one that feels like, once you decide to do it, right form the beginning, it feels like the right decision. Even though I had been thinking about it and had not been sure for a while, somehow it felt right the moment I made a decision about it. That doesn’t always happen with me."

"I decided to coach with Angela after hearing her on a podcast and felt a connection based on the words she was saying. She made me stop and think about where I am. It was an almost instant awareness of what I needed to stop and think about myself. Before, I never invested in myself. I didn’t think I was worth investing in. So I went to a dark burnt out place. After, I realized investing in myself wasn’t such a horrible thing. It was a healthy choice to get me out of a place where I was ruled by other people rather than ruling my own life. Now, I recognize that I need to put myself first in my world to serve other people to the best of my ability. Before, I was scared, burnt out, probably depressed. Now, I am definitely refreshed. My passion has been re-lit. I appreciate the found skill in being able to be self aware and be self-reflective. It is one of the best decisions I’ve made because it allowed me to explore and understand where I was and why I was there. I recommend coaching with Angela to other people because she challenges me to do hard things and it is helpful to actually apply what you would read in self development books."
Barrister & Solicitor, Shields Law Office
"I recommend coaching with Angela because it was life changing for me. I can only imagine what it would be like for other people, too. Before, I was in negative land and now I am in fabulous positive land. I was really running on empty, and now my tank is full. Before, I was just going through the motions, just thinking that this is it, this is the rest of my life, where I had no purpose, thinking that I was not good at anything, no hobbies, whatever the world tells us to do. I had none of that. And now, I’m with a tank full, I am seeing things that I don’t have to live inside a box. I can live outside a box, and the only thoughts that matter is what I generate. For anyone hesitating hiring a life coach, I would tell them that it is something that will turn around and change your life."
National Marketing Director and Life Coach
"I would highly recommend coaching with Angela to other people because it was life-changing for me. It feels like it just helped me to uncover all the stuff that was already there and helped me to run toward myself. Before, I was like tiptoeing or afraid to run, and now I’m just like running like Forrest Gump towards myself. I trust my feelings a lot more instead of overthinking everything, instead of focusing on all the hurdles. I’m just going to keep running. Angela really helped me be myself for my business instead of wondering what I’m supposed to be. I enjoy showing up for my business way more and have doubled my following on LinkedIn just by showing up and being comfortable as who I am. It is so hard to put into words, but it is one of the best decisions I’ve made because I feel like I had all these pieces, and all the pieces were there, but they weren’t all together and whole, and now through our work, I was able to put everything together and put all the right colors on there and add more color to create my own magic."
Lawyer and Mindful Life & Work Coach
"I recommend coaching with Angela because it is helpful to have someone available to help you identify your goals and connect with your motivation and reinforce good habits around setting the direction in your career and lifestyle. Coaching helped me think bout the direction of my personal and professional life during a period of lot of change following the pandemic and some big life changes. It was a great decision because it is helpful to have someone who has navigated similar experiences as a minority lawyer in this industry who can help you identify your motivation and encourage you to set your own direction."
Big Law Partner
"The biggest change through coaching was distinctly an increase in self-confidence and awareness of self-confidence. I would recommend this to lawyers because having an outside objective person gives me an honest critique of myself and allows me to see what I am not able to see without that objectivity. It is one of my best decisions because it has improved my life. Without self confidence and self-awareness, you’re kind of in the dark. And it is the best decision because I invested in myself and there is a return on that. I can’t place a value on it. It’s so important that I can’t even think of the word. It is priceless."
Of Counsel at Ford Richardson
"I am more patient and considerate for myself, showing love to myself first and foremost so I am able to show the love and expand this for my family, people at work, and everybody I interact with. Other lawyers should work with Angela because she knows the pain points we have, we are trained to be perfect and know it all, and she will help with the emotional upheaval and stress and comes with the job. This is the best investment in myself because it helped me recognize the behavioral patterns that don’t work and are not good for me. I learned how to deal with them, which is helpful for my development, my life, for doing whatever I want to embody the feeling that I am allowed to do what I want to do and get rid of all the should’s in life."
Senior Project Manager at NTT DATA Deutschland GmbH
"I was at a pretty low place, had lost a lot of confidence, and felt stuck. What I did was not working anymore and was caring about what other people think. Fast forward, I have learned to not care what other people think to be able to block out the noise and be more comfortable in my feelings, negative or positive, and have more confidence in my capabilities. It was one of the best decisions I made for myself because Angela came into my life when I needed it the most and got me out of a place where I have never been before. I would recommend Angela’s coaching to other people because she is magical."
Partner at Major, Lindsey, & Africa
"Happy I did it because it provoked me to get the help I needed, like hiring consultants, help around the house, and therapy. I became more cognizant of my feelings, moving away from toxic positivity to effective positivity. The last year and a half has felt like I’ve been faking it til I make it but now I feel like I am actually making it. I would recommend to other people because it would be very useful to get direction and bounce ideas off with. People who do not have direction will benefit from this."
"As an attorney, I give to others, but do not always have the time or energy to take care of myself. Angela’s coaching was the missing puzzle piece the jigsaw of my work days! [Angela] has provided me with a social connection, support that fuels my spirit, my physical and mental health. Thank you Angela!"
Michelle R. Finch,
Managing Attorney at Gravis Law, PLLC
"I started coaching with Angela more for a desire to support this amazing new mama who I got to know over LinkedIn and absolutely loved. I really did not know what expectations or goals I had for my coaching, but wow did Angela give me a quick shot of motivation and clarity. We had such amazing and emotional break-throughs that went far beyond just talking about careers or the practice of law. To me, that’s the point in working with a career/life/entrepreneur coach. It’s about working with people who have the immense talent in seeing experiences, thoughts, emotions outside the box that we often get trapped in. Angela has an amazing gift at this and it helped me to not just jump out of the box but to see that it’s not that scary jumping out of the box either. I’ve since finally taken the formal steps into my long contained dreams and it feels powerful."
