“I’m much better at observing myself. I’m clearly taking action on things I never would have before. I am getting out of my head and more into my gut and my heart. I know myself so much better. I’m listening to myself and being kinder to me and those around me. I’m making better decisions. I feel more confident. I understand my path and purpose better. I’m sold on coaching as a permanent part of my journey. I feel wholly improved. I feel more capable of knowing when I’m dealing with an issue, and how to take stock.”
— C. Lee

“My biggest learning is that I am a participant in the world around me and not just a spectator, and that it’s okay to speak up on my own behalf if I want things to change.”
— Tiffany
