Amy Yip Coaching
Amy Yip, Founder
I help ambitious women quiet their inner judge, overcome self-doubt and let go of all the 'shoulds' so they can finally be the author of their own life story (because if you're not telling your story, someone else is).
As Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
But it seems everyone has an opinion about who you should and shouldn't be. What you should and shouldn't do. How you should and shouldn't act.
What if you could live a life aligned to your own beliefs, passions, and wants versus being someone you were told “you should” be?
I know it's possible because I've been there!
After 16+ years of corporate life, I found the narrative I wanted to write for myself and followed that path.
In January 2020, I quit my job at Google, sold all my belongings in my NYC apartment and took a 1-way flight to Ghana with my husband to volunteer at a breast cancer non-profit while continuing to coach clients. The plan was to volunteer for 3 months, then travel the world. COVID clearly shifted our plans. We got stuck in Ghana for 7 months and I had to pivot my dreams.
One of my greatest learnings on my journey is: Your mindset, NOT your circumstance, makes all the difference in your happiness and success. Mental Fitness helped me find the courage to pursue my dreams, to pivot my dreams during COVID, and find the gift in every circumstance, to have a stronger relationship with myself and others, to handle the stresses of life and figure out what REALLY matters to me.
I am passionate about doing the same for others. If you want to strengthen your mental fitness, quiet your inner judge, and overcome self-doubt so you can figure out what REALLY matters to you and write the narrative you want to tell about the rest of your life then let's connect. I'd love to meet and hear your story. To help you (re)claim your internal authority and confidently make decisions that lead you towards your dreams (even if that dream isn't totally clear yet)Coaches and Consultants Business Career Communication Executive Health Leadership Life Mental Health Skills Wellness

Rowena Winkler, Owner
Helping women find their voice and own their authenticity.
Hi there! I'm Dr. Rowena Winkler. I help women find their voice and come back to their divine authenticity by using a combination of spiritual tools and practical strategies. My coaching method — and by extension my speaking style — encourages women to tap into self-love, build confidence, get unstuck, and make a change. As a marketing professional with over 15 years of experience, I'm also a higher ed consultant and instructor who develops and teaches courses in strategic communication and writing. I am a content creator, a musical theater performer, and a true extrovert. I love to be with people and I love to help people. I love to write, sing, dance, and act. I love to travel. I am a team player, a collaborator, an innovator, and a leader. I am a spiritual human being and an empath that connects with others. I feel the energy of a room and feed off that energy. I am a visionary that wants to take people to their highest potential, whether that is through my insights in communication, marketing, or using tools for healing like astrology or human design. For years I've always felt that I am capable of doing more and giving more to the universe. My coaching business is the culmination of that deep desire to do more, along with my vast experiences in speaking, writing, teaching, and performing. Whether someone is a student trying to figure out a career path, a solopreneur trying to determine their next marketing moves, or a mom trying to find herself again — I help clients dig deep and ask the right questions to get them to where they want to go next, gracefully and intentionally.Coaches and Consultants Business Career Communication Leadership Life Skills Wellness

Always Been Creative, Inc.
Glenn Rudin, Founder
I help companies create messages that are crystal clear.
It's really simple. If your company's messages (marketing and sales communications) are not crystal clear, your customers and potential customers will not know how to interact with you. I help companies create messaging that breaks through the marketplace noise and allows customers to immediately understand why they need to work with your company.
In addition, every member of your company has the capacity to sell your products and services. It is essential that each member of your team clearly understand why you do what you do so they can clearly communicate that message to everyone they come in contact with. If you are not taking advantage of this opportunity you are leaving lots of sales opportunities on the table.Coaches and Consultants Business Career Executive Leadership Skills
