"The [Energy Leadership] assessment broke down my life clearly into seven energy levels, and it was shocking to see how much negative energy level was present.  Being an extremely visual person, it was the reality check that I needed. The assessment gave me a foundation on which to base my future action plan in terms of solving issues.  While everyone has positive and negative energy in their lives, it is really helpful to know what percentages they are, and how they are also subcategorized, and how these tie in with each other."

Attorney and ??????

There seem to be an infinite number of resources available to people looking to make career changes these days, and I think I looked into most of them before I met Astrid. Numerous books advised me to do what I loved.  That sounded good, except that I didn’t know what I loved. A career test provided some insight and long lists of possibly compatible jobs, but ultimately directed me to do what I loved - back to square one.  Another career coach, dispensing with frivolities like love, laid out a practical approach to a career path that objectively made some sense, but I knew in my heart that I would hate it.  I felt deficient for not knowing what I loved, unreasonable for rejecting a sensible path that didn’t appeal, and in general, completely hopeless about my situation.

Are you ready to take charge of your life and experience authentic success?

Then you have come to the right place! As a coach, I share my passion for excellence and authenticity in the service of my mission: to inspire and empower you to live a life of genuine personal, professional and creative success.

Public Speaking For Musician Entrepreneurs: Draw In Your Audience with an Enticing Theme
People love music. It has been around since the early days of human's existence on the planet and it is not going away. But classical music is under attack for being too elitist, too difficult, too alien to the experience of today's audiences.  That's why it is important to find ways to invite audiences into the world of classical music.  One of the most effective ways  to do so is by speaking to audiences about the music that they are about to experience. I have been doing a lot...

Turning Arts Entrepreneurs into Inspired Leaders: Know Your WHY
My project in working with musicians and arts leaders is not only to teach arts entrepreneurship—the mindset, skillset and process of actualizing an innovative idea—but also to take entrepreneurship to the next level of cultural leadership To do so, I have my students articulate the greater purpose underlying WHY they make music, teach, perform and then communicate that purpose to the audience on whom they want to have an impact. In fact, by knowing your WHY, you can become the kind of le...
