Your ‘Sweet Spot’ for meaningful work

Past clients say…

I’m living my dream life. Beaches, rice paddies, coconuts, and sunsets.. all while doing work that I find fulfilling and meaningful.  I would absolutely not be here as quickly if it wasn’t for Lydia.

I needed a clear path to freedom from the office taking my existing skills and creating a tangible business I can travel with. I’m forever grateful!

If you’re open to changing your habits and belief systems, and truly want to be pushed out of your comfort zone to create a lifestyle and work/life balance of your dreams, Lydia is your coach.

Working with her changed my life and my approach to work entirely. I cannot go back now, only forward, and I’m excited for the years ahead.  I no longer dread work!

A formerly employed engineer who doubled her income with a consulting business.

Lydia strikes the right balance of compassion and no-nonsense ‘reality-check’ advice that has gently supported me in taking back my own power in my life.

She has guided me to look more honestly at myself and how I react to challenging situations that crop up in my life, helping me to identify the lessons that are blocking me from moving forward and creating my dream life.

I no longer have any excuses to keep playing it small!
