"I set up a session with Angela to prepare for an interview. The session was great. She gave me great advice and answer all the questions I had for her. I used most of her tips during the interview and I got very positive feedback from the person I interviewed with. I will definitely consider doing more sessions with her. "

"I found the feedback and coaching to be very beneficial and insightful. It was great to talk about my career with an unbiased perspective and hear feedback on areas I was doing well and areas of improvement that I could implement. I would use this service with Angela again in the future and would recommend it to others looking for career advice. "

"Angela's mentor session was very helpful. She provided me with insight into different subfields I could apply my skills to within media/photography and also gave me action items that I could work on that will help me find a balance between my day job and my personal work. It also helped that she was very patient and listened closely. Angela was able to provide a perspective on my career and my level of expertise that I had not considered before and I highly recommend her services to anyone else. Thank you!"

"This was a very informative session. Angela knows what she is doing and its very helpful. She really answered questions I had that where not related to my career, but my goals as a whole. She is understanding, notices things you haven't said about yourself and she gives inside that is very reasoursful. I have a clear direction about what I need to do and how I need to do it. From this session I realised that I need to sit and rethink my goals and how I'm going to archive them. "

"Best decision I made! I am at a crossroad in my life on where I want to go with my career. Angela was able to translate my challenges and confusion into a clear defined goal. By the end the call, I had clarity of what types of jobs I should search for based on my skills and what I am most passionated about. Angela was amazing and blew my expectations away! She is very knowledgeable and was able to help provide me with not only what types of jobs but industry insight as well. Angela is amazing and truly listens to YOU and then provides actions you can take without feeling overwhelmed. After I ended the call, I finally felt energized to begin my search and was excited what the future will hold. "

"Angela was an incredible resource for me to discuss challenges I'm currently facing in my career. I thought career coaching was primarily for job seekers, which I am not, but this is not the case! She helped me set up an action plan to push forward with confidence and belief in my abilities. She validated my thoughts and feelings and encouraged me to self-reflect as I work toward achieving my goals. Angela was very down to earth, easy to talk to and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!"
- Jen D. Apr. 29, 2016
"The call was helpful in giving a better sense of direction. As a result, I feel a little more confident in where I should concentrate my efforts and how I can work smarter in the action phase. "
- Folakemi O. Apr. 27, 2016
"Definitely worthwhile. Angela was able to provide focus and direction with my resume and my career. Best investment made. Exactly what I needed. "
- Brian B. Mar. 24, 2016
"Well, who knew it was this easy? If I'd have known what an asset Angela would be to me in my career transition, I would have reached out to here a very long time ago. We were barely fifteen minutes into the conversation and she'd provided so much clarity and focus to areas concerning my resume and personal branding development when I'd been spinning my wheels for months! Yes, the $95 for the session was worthwhile but it was the person (I'm bragging on Y.O.U, Angela!) behind the investment that made this money very well spent. She was, and is, exactly what I needed.
