I had no idea how I was going to pay for the coaching. I was working a serving job, starting to restart my familys company, and pursue a career as a dancer. I was living with my mom and barely making ends meet. I also had plans to move from Chicago to LA in about 4 months, all the money I was making that was going towards survival, were being saved for that move. It seemed impossible that I could generate that kind of money, first of all even to move, and then absolutely insane that I could also be paying a life coach.
I had no idea how to run a business. Our business went from nothing, literally, to now being sold in 30 different stores, including Whole Foods, and we're expanding everyday. We've generated over $70k in investments, grants, and loans. My income has also more than doubled. I have more in my savings account than I ever have before. I paid off all my credit card debt and raised my credit score significantly by 230 points. I also made the move from Chicago to LA really seamlessly and I'm so excited to say that I'm moving into my own place this weekend, that I paid for completely on my own, something I have never done before.
What I like most about working with Louiza is having someone to hold me accountable. I know I'm the type of person who dreams big and doesn't usually execute. I love having Louiza to bring me back down to Earth and remind me what I'm really committed to and make sure that I do what I said I was going to do.
The value that I've gotten from coaching is really going from little girl to grown woman in all areas of my life. I now know myself as someone who can run a business and who can overcome any obstacle that I am faced with, and of course, fear and blocks still come up and that's the beauty of getting to check in weekly with Louiza, because we get to look at those blocks, break them down, and create something new. Through coaching I have expanded what I thought was possible for me. I moved forward in areas that I was so resistant in (ie: dating) and had experiences and growth I would've never had otherwise. Coaching was the push that I needed to take the steps that got me to these things.
I would describe Louiza as loving and warm and at the same time powerful, straight forward, an unwavering stand for me. I would recommend her service to someone who is committed to have a life that they love and, most importantly, that person needs to be willing to do the work that is required.
Louiza is an amazing person. She is a connector and a center of warmth and joy. Her presence is contagious as is her abundance of energy. She was always an enthusiastic cheerleader for me, but would at the same time challenge me to take the tough steps to move myself forward. Her support helped spur my growth and development.
I questioned what coaching could actually do for me before we started working together. What could all this possibility that we kept talking about actually look like? Without being able to understand all the possibility in front of me, I also didn't know if the investment in myself would be worthwhile. With Louiza's help, I definitely was able to see the possibility and appreciate the investment I made in myself.
Louiza's ability to connect with me and help me better understand myself were what made the experience so valuable. Louiza also challenged me and allowed me to see the barriers that I was putting in my own way so that I could knock them down and move towards my goals.
Louiza has supported me in gaining a new awareness of my life and my potential future. Her coaching has helped me make the choice to not do things the way that I always have and instead take action into new uncharted waters from a place of love and power. From this place, I have been able to take accountability for my actions and take responsibility for my future.
I would whole-heartedly recommend Louiza's service. She has helped me co-create an incredible future for myself. Her intuitiveness and guidance have allowed me to make incredible changes in my life - everything from starting to date again to beginning to work on my own business to creating a plan to run the New York City marathon. My path to success that I am currently on is my own path, but I would not be here if it were not for Louiza's guidance.
This year I went to the Philippines for a month and took a total of 8 and a half weeks of vacation. In the past I was afraid my clients would find someone else if I went away on vacation and I was afraid of losing money. I didn't take vacation time because it would mean no money. I'm ready to give more to my patients because I'm giving more to myself. Clients are happy to see me taking care of myself. I used to consider taking off as an expense, now it's a joy because I know that taking vacation times makes me more productive and efficient and much better practitioner. I set my clients up powerfully before I leave, I give them actions to take while I'm gone, and I have my calendar filled when I return. I want to travel more. Now I'm committed to peace and fun and you create structures to keep your clients happy. Vacation is self care. I used to believe that I didn't deserve it and needed to wait until I had a higher income. I used to get some work done during my vacations, now I never open your computer on vacation. I used to feel guilty if I spent any amount on myself.
Initially I feared the cost of coaching, but I knew it was the exact thing I needed to take me to the next level. It was so valuable to have someone listen through my excuses and push me outside my fears weekly, so that I’m living at my highest potential in all areas of my life.
I would recommend Louiza to anyone who truly wants to take their business and life to the next level. For me, my excuses and fear of rejection were keeping me limited. Thankfully, Louiza was there to keep me committed to my goals and reverse my self-limiting fears so that I was moving forward and taking actions. Now I’m producing new possibilities and continuously growing professionally, personally and spiritually."
Louiza is supportive and real. She is positive and brings great energy to every call. She is determined and relentless in her curiosity to delve in. She is challenging and resourceful.
I have become much more aware of when I am blocking myself from what I want. I have been learning the tools to be aware of when that is happening and the also what to do to break through that. I have become much more communicative in all of my relationships and that has contributed to me being more powerful in creating what I want. I have become much more aware of my strengths and self worth which has allowed me to not worry about outside affirmations and contributed to me making powerful decisions. This has produced results with my relationships, dating and my business. All the people in my life have witnessed these changes and they also have become inspired.
I really like the process of breaking it all down and getting to the core of what is really happening. I also really like the support and positivity that Louiza provides. There are tough moments and she is challenging, but there is always a sense that she is there to help and support and that I am doing the right thing. I like how she helps me create the "possibility" and "probability" when I never thought I could. I also really like that she acknowledges me and the work that I am doing - it's very energizing.
I would definitely recommend it to someone who was truly committed to making changes in their life. I truly see that it can work. I also feel like I am gaining the tools that will help and support me for the rest of my life.
I never considered coaching and did not know what it entailed. I was stuck with my life which bled into my business. Dating was something that would have been nice but was not something I wanted to do.
Coaching hit some major points with my business and building a new structure for it. I noticed the types of clients I attract are more B2B and wedding clients, a more focused angle and goal, knowing the worth of my products, and not losing customers due to price increase.
Putting myself out there taught me a lot of things about myself which I took for granted or didn't realize. Business, work and life balance/wellness has helped out things into perspective, which forced me to take a step back to reanalyze my life. Over the past few months, I have created a routine that has resulted in a better time management. I am not afraid to communicate with others, whereas before I held back as to not offend or disappoint. My dating life improved 100% and became an exciting game once I felt more comfortable going out with men.
I was terrified of investing so much money in my own growth and development, on a consistent monthly basis before I signed up for coaching. I was worried I wouldn't be able to grow my business quickly enough to pay Louiza, and that I would go into debt or something else horrible would happen financially and the coaching wouldn't be enough to get me out of it. I'm happy to report that didn't happen!
My favorite thing about working with Louiza is her ability to listen so closely to whatever it is that I'm dealing with, and hear the golden nuggets in everything I say and point out things I may not even see myself, or limitations that I've been blind to. Getting connected to another perspective has be discover things I didn't see before our call, and she reassures me with her confidence and ease that I will always generate value through our calls in whatever it is I'm dealing with in my life.
I would recommend Louiza's service because she provides consistent, unwavering support and skilled coaching looking at whatever people get stopped by, and how they can overcome those blocks. It's valuable work and a powerful contribution to anyone's life.
My biggest hesitation before working with Louiza was if coaching would “work;” if it would be worth the time, money, and effort. I have never had any previous professional coaching and wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. I’m so glad I put my fear aside and committed to coaching.
The biggest change I’ve noticed is an overall sense of mental organization. Louiza has helped give me the tools to be able to concentrate on my short and long term goals while combating mental hurdles that previously slowed my progress. She holds me accountable and pushes me to succeed in all areas of my life. I feel refreshed, focused, and determined with my business. We found areas for improvement and implemented much needed changes. In addition to organization, Louiza has helped move the business in a consistent positive direction.
My relationship is much stronger and more balanced. I’ve become a more committed and supportive partner. I’m so happy and excited for the future. Overall, my life has more direction. Before working together I described myself as floating along, but now I have clear goals and a plan to achieve them. I’m excited, passionate, and embracing positive change.
My favorite thing about working with Louiza is when big breakthroughs happen; when I turn a big corner with myself, my relationship, or my business. I look forward to our calls all week; they’re a way to mentally refresh, focus, and continue to grow. I love being held accountable for my goals and being pushed to follow through. Louiza really is a coach; she wants the best for me and to help me succeed.
I would absolutely recommend Louiza. Working together has been an extremely positive and empowering collaboration. I would recommend her to anyone looking for positive changes in their life but unsure of the first step. To someone who is hesitant about working with Louiza I would say: the first step towards cultivating real change in your life is putting fear and doubt aside. It can be scary trying something totally new, but it will be so worth it. Louiza’s expertise and support has been invaluable to me. Words can’t describe how happy I am that I put my own fear and hesitations aside and committed to working with Louiza.
[I knew] it was going to be challenging and doing things like stepping out of my comfort zone, squeezing things into my already busy schedule, and challenging my way of thinking. But I also knew its worth it too.
My dating activity significantly increased to where I had to manage who I should see. My social connections strengthened and I no longer feel lonely. Overall I am much happier and content with myself and where I am heading in life. I enjoy the control I have to do and create whatever I want. And if I change my mind or don't like something, I can just change it work on something else!
Louiza is very supportive and also provides a level of brain storming assistance for new ideas and ways to approach things.
The hesitations I had before signing up for coaching was purely financial. I’ve done coaching before so I knew the benefits of coaching were worth it. I had absolutely no extra money at the time to begin coaching right away because I just started a new business and had invested everything I had in it. So it took me a few months of straightening out my situation with my business, family, mortgage, and job. The other minor hesitations I had was the time commitment because sessions were on a weekly basis and maybe even the effectiveness of the coaching.
I am on my 8th month of coaching and my life has definitely been less stressful, which says tons, because I naturally create loads of stress for myself. For my life, my already strong outlook on life has only gotten bolder and more confident with Louiza. My moments of fear, second-guessing, and questioning are now rare and far in-between when it comes to my crazy goals. So less stress = better health = 5 pounds lost = more time for myself, family, and happiness.
Since coaching I’ve been able to shift my role in my studio from overwhelmed yoga teacher, to smart business owner, to savvy entrepreneur. I’ve been able to build a strong and reliable team to help me with the tasks that I could wisely let someone else handle so I can tackle the business generating responsibilities. My yoga studio and I are still growing, but through coaching I learned that I don’t have to do everything myself and through planning and action, my goals can be achieved.
My deep rooted life-purpose is to be a professional blogger and to be able to finally express my creative side and my love for it. Therefore this had the most blocks, hurdles, emotions, complications, excuses, and pretty much where a lot of the work went towards. But with Louiza's candid and insightful listening and coaching, I’m miles closer to launching, after 3 stagnant years of trying on my own and suffering on the inside about it. The thing I discovered about this is I actually had to straighten out my life and my business because it was killing me. And now that’s been smoothed out, my full attention is now on my blog.
One of the most important changes I have noticed is my relationship to the word urgency.
I did a life changing course before meeting Louiza and while it was amazing I did not get the one on one accountability every week for each area in my life. Before signing up I was hesitant because I was concerned about the money and was not sure if the results were real. Money and time were my two considerations, and after the first week with Louiza I was able to identify other area in my life where I was hesitant to make choices because of these two factors. A conversation with her transformed my hesitancy and my perspective on not enough money and not enough time.
The noticeable changes are around my mindset. The conversations provide access to something I never thought about before. They are not just ideas. But actions to take in areas of my life that are important to me. I am job hunting looking for substantial pay more than before. I've increased my compensation request. My dating has transformed. I am clear on what I want and have become much more direct in my conversations about what I want.
The feature I like the most about coaching is that, Louiza's Socratic method. She never "gives me " answers, and she always has great suggestions. She is so open, non judgmental, understanding, and a great listener. She hears even the things I'm not saying.
I recommend working with Louiza because she’s an amazing coach. She listens for what’s important to people. She is gentle when your uncomfortable and gets you in action even when your hiding out in life.
Through coaching I was able to understand how scared I was of vulnerability and I have committed to stepping outside of my comfort zone and challenging the notion that I have to hide who I am and not show people my true self.
Coaching supported me in noticing that automatic patterns and beliefs were ruling my life and that I could consciously change my beliefs and go after what I really want.
You will love working with Louiza. She will support you in achieving your desires in life and be help you to be accountable each week to take steps toward what you want rather than settling for what you already have.
Before working with Louiza , my biggest hesitation was that she was much younger than I. I didn't think she had the life experience to help me with the issues I wanted to work on. I'm so glad I reconsidered and got to see that a younger person's point of view is very valuable and gave me a different perspective than that which I usually experience.
I always felt very safe sharing with Louiza and trusted that what she had to say would make a difference. Louiza was a delight to work with, always enthusiastic and supportive. Our calls helped me see so many things I might otherwise have not ever shifted.
I would absolutely recommend her coaching services to others. Louiza has a real commitment to helping people and having their lives work. She does so with sensitivity, thoughtfulness, enthusiasm and love.
Before we started working together I was hesitant about the time and money, of course. But more than that, I had doubts about how effective coaching would really be for me. I wasn’t sure coaching could generate the concrete and tangible changes I wanted in my life.
However, through coaching, I have noticed MASSIVE changes in my life as a whole from working with Louiza. From our time together I have become so clear about the patterns that keep me away from the relationships and life that I truly desire. Even more powerful than this clarity has been the support in developing new ways of being and taking action from an empowered place (i.e. generating my life from my heart and love versus from fear).
Louiza has helped me become more honest with people and myself. Being honest has also helped me focus on my goals and make decisions that are inline with what I really want.
I was hesitant to sign up for coaching because I was unsure I’d get enough return in my investment, however Louiza’s commitment and friendliness made the coaching way worth the price. She supported me in staying accountable, recognizing different opportunities for growth and debunking the different ways I sabotaged my own goals.
Louiza helped me discover that the paths I believed defined success were not the only options in my life. She helped me build a strong foundation to build my future on.
I have noticed my entire life perspective shift. My life used to be controlled by fear and one of the first things I learned was to release it. Now, I don't even remember what fear and anxiety are. They make no sense to me anymore! That is the most amazing part!! I live with no worry or fear because I simply trust myself and my life. In my surroundings, my entire life has changed in every aspect. When I first signed up, I was down because I had moved to my dream location, Valencia, Spain, and was unable to continue there because I was making no money and couldn't afford to stay. I was living there illegally and had just met the love of my life. I was sure I wouldn't be able to return to Spain to my new dream city, Madrid, and still have the love of my life be around and be legal and have a job and a busy, fulfilling life all in one. Now, one year later, I live in Madrid. The love of my life told me he never once stopped thinking of me and I am more in love than ever.
Since beginning coaching, my creative flow has been exploding nonstop. I constantly have new and innovative ideas and was referred to by my boss as "revolutionary". I live in peace, harmony, and love. My only complaint is that my face hurting from smiling has become a part of my daily routine. Negativity no longer exists in my life, there is simply no place for it.
What I loved about coaching most was Louiza's enthusiasm. She believed in me so much that I believed in me. She guided me to an entirely new way of life and I haven't looked back since. She has shown me the path to live a great life, a life filled with doing whatever I please. She showed me how to let go of everything I was conditioned to believe through proof of how our minds work. She didn't tell me the secrets, she pointed me in the right direction and led me there. She let me figure it out on my own but together we figured out everything I was searching for. She was incredible motivation and always a positive aspect of my week to look forward to. She believed in me when no one, even myself in the beginning, did. Finally, I started to join her and believe in myself and saw the beauty of life unravel before my eyes. Once she got me to see why she believed in me so much, my entire life shifted because once you believe in yourself, it's only uphill from there. I never even saw negative things as being negative anymore. I knew they would pass and were apart of only going up. Each week I only got more and more positive. There wasn't a single drawback.
I would recommend Louiza a thousand times over again. Her service is life altering. She allows you to dig all the way to the core to begin and restructures every single aspect of life and how you see it. Thinking back it truly leaves me speechless. I have accomplished all I wanted when I started and an absolute infinite amount more. The most beautiful thing is knowing that it's not as if life is a plateau now. I continue coming up with ideas, opportunities are constantly arising, my dreams are unfolding in spades plus so much more I never could have imagined.
You may be hesitant to begin life coaching, but there is without a doubt, absolute guarantee, that when you look back, it will have been so much more worth it than you can ever possibly imagine. You go back to the roots of your soul and reconstruct every last thing, I can't express the impact of change that occurs. The most beautiful thing is that they are the most incredible, unimaginable changes. I am so beautifully blessed to experience them and am beyond grateful to have done it. I can't even begin to picture my life without having done it, all I know is that it's nothing like what it is."
At first I was hesitant to sign up for coaching. Initially I thought of the support as an indication that I was incomplete or broken. Once I experienced a sample session, I was relieved to hear that we would be focusing on the goal areas I wanted to grow.
After working with Louiza, the changes have been numerous starting with the most important relationship, relationship with self. I have become loving and more compassionate. Additionally, I am now completing all tasks that normally would let fall to the sidelines. My business has grown by being present to the relationship with my clients.
I found myself and self-love in the same place. I continue to be a force of action these several months and have accomplished so many of the goals I set for myself. I find that I continue to surprise people around me and inspire to grow.
Coach doesn’t quite explain the role that Louiza plays in your life. She’s a mentor, active listener, spiritual guide, big sister and much, much more. Louiza is a fantastic listener, dynamic in her presentation of tools and is a connector at heart. Her passion for connection is evident in every interaction.
I would recommend Louiza because she’s a professional that sees your self interest at heart and finds a way to propel you to the next level. She is more invested in your goals than you are and is happier for your success than your mom!
