Executive Coaching & Career Transition Coaching

There is something that shifts in your life and in your world when you decide to stop playing small” – Abby Locke

Abby Locke, The Brand Brilliance CoachI can clearly remember the moment in life when I decided to stop playing small. My thoughts shifted, my personal world changed and my entire outlook on life, success and growth was elevated.

But it didn’t start out that way. You see I was the poster girl for job hoppers. Every 2 to 3 years, I kept moving from job to job, doing the “right” thing and trying to convince myself that I could make it work.

The reality was this…I knew deep down inside what I wanted to do more, but kept making excuses. I tried to convince myself that staying in a safe, comfortable zone was fine.

Well, 1997 rolled in and epiphany came with it. I finally woke up and made a commitment to stay true to my purpose and go for my BOLD career dreams which was starting my own consulting business.

Not just any consulting business, but one where I help executives and emerging women leaders to identify their personal brand, discover their strengths, get clear on their interests and passion and learn how to effectively market themselves in today’s competitive business environment.

I have never looked back and have no regrets.

Why I Do This?

Call me the eternal optimist, but I just like seeing everyone win!

For as long as I can remember, I had the natural ability to connect with others, help them get confident and embrace their true career and personal life goals without restriction, hesitation or concern about what others think.

What I love most of coaching my clients is experiencing them reach that breakthrough and “aha” moment in their lives. When you show up as powerful and authentic in your life, personal and professional success has to follow.
