In your life, you’are being tossed to and fro, losing focus by going along with momentary distractions – instead of following those dreams and that life plan you have long since misplaced. Sound familiar?

Here’s My Story

At the age of 25, I was a homeless Air Force veteran who didn’t have a penny to my name.

Today, I am a national award-winning business owner and a professionally-trained and certified life coach who just a few years ago sold my first business before taking 12 months off to travel and explore beautiful, exotic locations.

From both my corporate career and my years as an entrepreneur, I have gained extensive experience successfully creating, developing and marketing businesses. My work has included business development, automation, marketing, training, and leadership. And I have learned a few great business and life lessons along my path to success. So now I spend my time coaching dreamers to reach their goals.

When not coaching, you can find me either working on finishing my book, being a guest blogger, speaking on various topics at workshops or broadcasting on my podcasts.

In my personal time, I am [tweet_dis]a hobbyist photographer, amateur artist, beach bum, blogger, and a travel addicted island-hopping adventurer who also fancies fashion[/tweet_dis]. Found something relatable in my story? Send me a private message and let me know your thoughts. I’d be glad to hear from you.

Angelica G. (Texas)

I had hoped to make some changes in my outlook as I go through this transition to the next phase of my life. And my expectations were met.

Changed Outlook

The life coaching exercise was great. I wrote the letter and felt some things that I needed to address and realize about myself. I’m just an innocent living person, who’d been hurt at a young age and need to figure out how to get that person back. I’m ready for change and willing to do what it takes to get there. Thank you for all your help.

Revealing

I don't think there was anything you could have improved upon. I felt that you were always empathetic, understanding, encouraging, never condescending and I always felt that you really cared. You are a great communicator and very sincere.

Very Sincere

Newer Heights

Life coaching allowed me to take a critical look at my life's goals.

Critical Assessment

The letter went awesome. Wrote 5 pages. It was much needed. Love writing and that is something I needed to do. Writing it made me feel good inside. Knowing the younger me wouldn't feel alone in life. At first my anxiety was high and I had so many bubble guts. But once I started writing I couldn't stop. I loved every last min of it.

Felt Good
