When I started coaching with Norma in 2020, I was a brand new business owner, searching for someone to help guide me in this journey.

I was unaware of my values or boundaries and had insecurities that I didn’t even know were holding me back.

Through working with Norma I gained awareness in many areas of my life which now I can confidently say:

  • I know what my values and boundaries are

  • I know what fuels and drains me

  • I know what kind of relationships I want to foster

  • I more than tripled my clientele and revenue in 2021

  • I am confident in my skills and capabilities

  • I have strong communication and problem solving abilities

Working with Norma as a life coach has helped me realize my ultimate potential as a woman, entrepreneur, mom, and athlete. Her spot-on coaching has been incredibly valuable in motivating me to have clear intentions, take action, and live my life deliberately (instead of just letting life happen to me!) Her vast life experiences as well as her infectious attitude about taking charge of your own happiness, has been crucial in teaching me how to navigate the obstacles that stand before me in order to get to where I want to be! Norma has helped me discover the things that matter the most to me and has been critical in helping me discover my true self and purpose and what is best for ME moving forward!

I find that [my] sessions [with Norma] help me think clearly and truly make me think about what I have the power to do in order to get what I want.

I really can’t thank Norma enough for the support and accountability given to me so far. I feel much more confident in my independence and ability to be on my own. Norma has helped me to realize that I can and should continue to work towards my goal of “My Team”. [She] helps me to know that I am resilient enough to get through this time in my life on my own, but I don’t have to. I must start telling people how I need them to be in my life and what I need from them. I thank Norma for that.
