Business leaders flourish.


Working with Yan has been life-changing. After starting my own strategic communications firm in May of 2016, I knew very early on that I needed a level of accountability and balance in my new role as CCO. More than ever, I have a responsibility to be an effective leader - my team and my business depend on it. Because of that, I have a desire to constantly grow and be as impactful as possible for those around me. Yan has helped me flourish as a business owner - and even more importantly - has guided me through tough decision-making processes, all while coaching me how to live the fullest life possible, a life that was once a dream and is now a reality.

Yan is an exceptional business coach and a dynamite delightful person. Her spot-on perceptions and insights knocked my socks off. Remarkably intuitive, her metaphors offered me the opportunity to think beyond my limitations. Her infectious zest helped me to harness my best self and elevate my curiosity and motivation to learn more. Added to her affirming and remarkably perceptive style, Yan's humor and sincere empathy made me feel at home, relaxed, and valued throughout our coaching.

She has an amazing talent for crafting exciting business coaching that sparked my creativity. She helped me keep my nose to the grindstone when I needed that for accountability. Her coaching talent enabled me to find structure and added meaning to assist me in accomplishing my goals. Yan appreciated my successes and we joyfully celebrated them together.

To me Yan is an artist with grit. A very powerful lady like steel sometimes and on other occasions as gentle and understanding as a rare beautiful flower. Yan is unique. A shining star coach.

I have been coached by many coaches, and I teach positive psychology coaching. Yan stands out from the crowd. She is super dedicated to your success and happiness.

Gift yourself with coaching by Yan. It may be the best forward motion and valued learning fun you have in your career and in your entire life, too.
