Testimonials

 
Rayla has a unique gift of simplifying tasks and beliefs to help you craft the best version of yourself. I was impressed after our first session, but what continues to inspire me is her ability to challenge your own thoughts, questions, opinions, and ambition. Her honesty, attention to detail, and uncanny knack of staying task oriented only highlights her passion for her work and clients. Rayla reminds you that it’s OK AND NORMAL to dream big and that your dreams are ATTAINABLE. The coaching I’ve received in planning alone has been well worth my time and efforts. The work she assigns is essential in aligning your vision, values, and even self-worth. I feel much more confident in my day-to-day interactions because of our sessions. I am very grateful for her support, wisdom, and guidance as I transition to clarity in my passion, work, and career.

I chose to work with Rayla because she has always impressed me with her focus and determination in whatever she has chosen to do. She helped me think about the “bigger picture” and challenged me to define my truth. This was something that I always knew to be very important, but had never taken the time to carefully consider. Due to my time in our sessions, I am better armed to decide what are opportunities and what are distractions. Also, I took a giant leap of faith to work in a new city, and am now in a happy career in Chicago, IL. I have Rayla to thank for that.

“Rayla goes as far as to follow up with me in between sessions, always thinking of new ways to help me grow. She’s constantly motivating me to be the best at what I do. Prior to working together, I was really lacking a vision for myself. After several sessions with her, not only is my vision clear, but I also have a plan on how to turn that vision into a reality. I’m so grateful for Rayla’s dedication and commitment to inspiring me. There’s no way my vision would have ever been this clear without her. Thank you so much, Rayla!”

“Rayla and I had a fantastic first session! We were introduced through a mutual friend and connected immediately. I really love how Rayla takes the time to get to know her clients, so when you do have your first session, she already has a good understanding of how you want the future meetings to flow. Her passion and enthusiasm for life is beyond radiant and also contagious, that one can tell she wants what’s best for her clients. I am so thrilled to be working with Rayla and look forward to our sessions together! She guides me to become the best version of myself.”

“During my first session, Rayla challenged me to identify my vision for my career and more so, the vision for my life. By the end of the hour spent writing and in discussion, I knew I needed to change paths in order to achieve my vision. Together, Rayla and I made a plan, I began reaching out to my network, and I now have a new job with an incredibly supportive manager. Today I work with an amazing team, sit in my first office, and am growing my skillset beyond what I thought possible. I continue to meet with Rayla monthly to discuss roadblocks and set goals. She holds me accountable and asks the hard questions like “if you aren’t willing to put in the time, how bad do you really want it?” My biggest Rayla lesson? Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back. So glad to have Rayla in my tribe!”

“I have wanted to start a business to sell my handmade pottery since I graduated with an Art Degree almost 10 years ago. In November 2016, I finally committed to the idea of starting an online shop. I shared this idea with Rayla one day and mentioned how it will be my ‘side hustle’ until I get tired of it. Although I would love for it to be my main source of income, I couldn’t see how that could be.A few days after that conversation, Rayla reached out and said she couldn’t let me continue thinking in such a small way. If I wanted to be a business owner full time and wanted to sell my pottery, why couldn’t I?!It wasn’t until our first coaching session that I fully envisioned what that would look like. During our time together, Rayla helped guide me into a more focused approach on how I think about my future, and how to focus my efforts towards action. I usually consider myself a “doer”... but just because I’m doing, doesn’t mean it’s effective. I think I’ve always struggled with focus, and although I had all of the ingredients, it was through Rayla’s coaching that I finally developed my own recipe. She also has a way of helping me think of things as big ideas, where I’m naturally more focused on the micro-details.I’m grateful for her support and guidance in helping me develop my vision and future. Somewhere along the way, I forgot what it felt like to “dream big” about what I want to do in life... her guidance and support have allowed me to hit reset on the path I feel I have become aimless walking down, and now I can form a path that will lead me into a future where I’m living the life I’m meant to live! It’s all about a Vision, Focus and Action!”
