Amanda’s Life Design Story

I created many new external changes in my life through Life Design however, the biggest impact occurred with my “internal world.” Before Life Design I identified as an old soul, shy, introverted and socially inept. I had daily anxiety and low-grade depression. I was a homebody who lived within an 8-mile radius of my home to keep safe from the fear of looking badly in public. Since Life Design, my experience of my life has joy and happiness. I am confident in my interactions with others and regularly enjoy time out of my home and being with people. Many have reflected that I “look different” as a result. I feel different! My life before the program looked successful and put together, but I now experience the true joy and happiness of living a fulfilled, successful life — by design!

Dina’s Life Design Story

In 2015 I took a big, somewhat scary, leap, leaving a successful career as a manager in healthcare.  Although this work was important, I longed to contribute more personally to the well-being of others and to do something that would make my heart sing!  I had a lot of ideas but lacked clarity and confidence in what my next steps should be. Frankly, I was at a loss. I had a long-standing dream to help people with cancer.  I also knew that the work I found most rewarding, over the years, was owning my own health and healing practice and as a life coach, where I was able to witness the transformations people experienced when they committed themselves to their own growth and well-being. 

In 2016 I had the opportunity to participate in a Life Design group program.  It was a game changer!  Through the Life Design process I gained the clarity and confidence I needed to propel me into the making the most of my gifts and creating a deeply fulfilling and joyful life that truly reflects what is most important to me, in my work life, my personal life and volunteer activities.
