Hello there,

I am a lawyer and global nomad who recently turned into a life coach and writer. Rediscovering my passions to connect with people and be creative was one of the greatest gifts of my adult life. Having experienced for myself how life coaching can pull you up from the dark places we all sometimes fall into and bring you back to the light, I want to help others have the same experience.

I believe that every person has the potential to do incredible things. What often gets in our way is fear and self-doubt. Sometimes, the doubt is so strong that we cannot see a clear path. I want to help you get back on track and let love and courage be your guides.

Originally from Germany, I have lived in several countries and know how it feels to give up one home for another. I have felt like an outsider at home and abroad and have learned to create my own culture from my experiences. Expat life can be a challenge and a gift. If you are moving abroad or back home and would like some support on this journey, I would be more than happy to help.

I am looking forward to working with you on your very own unique journey!

Welcome to the pasture, where the grass is greener because we water it. (Unless you live in California and are in the middle of a sever drought. In that case, brown is the new green baby!)

My name is Anna Acuña and I’m the Fulfillment Coach for you—the Ambitious Professional in your 20s/30s seeking work and a life that sets your soul on fire.

I’m passionate about inspiring and supporting you in the pursuit of your passions.

Let me guess, you’re bored out of your mind and wish you were doing something more fulfilling with your life. Am I right? Chances are you’re good at what you do and make a decent living doing it, but find yourself drained, unfulfilled and uninspired. Do you feel like you’re just going through the motions? Do you have all this potential brewing inside you waiting to be tapped (like a delicious craft beer), but either don’t know what to do with it or find yourself hesitant to take action? Perhaps you already know your passion and need help figuring out how to pursue it. Or maybe you have no clue what your passion is and want to discover it. If you’re anything like me, then you have multiple passions and no idea which one you should pick and commit to.

Sound familiar? I know what it’s like to feel lost, confused and paralyzed by options.

I also know how to clear the fog, find clarity, direction and focus around what I want to pursue in my life and take deliberate action.

When I graduated college with a B.S. in Kinesiology and minor in Theatre, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life in terms of a career. All I really cared about or felt fulfilled doing was lifting the spirits of others and encouraging them to pursue the things they were passionate about. There wasn’t exactly a career out there I knew of designed for such an abstract “skill set” though. Besides that, all I knew was I was passionate about many different things and wanted a career that would allow me to do a variety of things. So, despite the very real and looming burden of student loan debt, family expectation, social expectation and the pressure to settle down and find a “real job”, I held off in search of a career that set my soul on fire. A career that not only allowed me to connect with and support others in the pursuit of their passions, but also provided the creative fulfillment, sense of purpose and freedom I desired, especially in terms of my time and money.

I’ve never been one to do things for money. Instead of choosing a job to just pay the bills, I pursued my passions to see which one would be a fulfilling career option. I trusted my instincts, let my passions guide me and tapped into the abundance of potential I possessed. I pursued and enriching collection of work experiences and took advantage of opportunities I never thought possible before.

Some of those opportunities included working in the entertainment industry, teaching and education, becoming a certified Yoga Instructor, learning web design and working for an e-commerce scuba company.

In the pursuit of my passions, I discovered what matters most to me and started crafting an intentional vision of my life. Along the way, I came across Life Coaching and began to contemplate the idea of starting my own business as an entrepreneur. To be completely honest, the idea of starting my own business scared the shit out of me and the thought of turning into a “salesy, bottom-line crazed douchebag” was a huge turn off—you know what I’m talking about. So, I spent another 3 years mulling the idea over while working for other people hoping to find my dream job. Eventually, it became undoubtedly clear that the life I sought was one of my own making and on my own terms.

Pursuing my passions led me directly to the work I had been looking for all along; life as a Wild & Free entrepreneur!

So let me ask you…what are you passionate about? Would you like to pursue it?
Pursuing your passions is the key to creating a life that sets your soul on fire. When you do the things you love, work becomes a fulfilling, energizing and worthwhile use of your time that allows you to create, innovate, make a profound difference in the world, and live your life to the fullest. It boosts your health and all aspects of your being—mind, body, and spirit.

If your instincts tell you to pursue your passions, then trust your gut and tap into your boundless potential. As your coach, I will guide you through the process of discovering and pursuing your passions, so you can create a life that sets your soul on fire.

Follow me and soon you will be Wild & Free!

Sick of the daily grind, but don’t know what else to do?

What if you could pinpoint your purpose, take steps toward the livelihood that’s right for you and make the rest of your life the best of your life?

My name is Sara McArdle, and I coach mid-career professional women to find the work that delights and energizes them, and aligns with their sense of purpose.

Dreamy, right? Because if you’re like my clients, you’ve been dissatisfied doing what you’re doing for a living—for years. You’re stressed out, frustrated, uninspired or possibly flat-out unhappy, and it’s having an impact on your well-being. Maybe you’re not getting the respect and appreciation you need. Or, perhaps what you’re doing just “isn’t you.”

Whether you’re clueless about what else to do, you’re scared of losing your cushy pay and benefits or changing your career field is simply too daunting to dive into on your own, I’ve got your back. My programs are designed to help you leave the daily grind behind. We’ll shine a light on which areas of your life are supporting your career change and which ones are holding you back, and we’ll uncover your deepest values and hidden talents. You’ll clarify the work you’re called to do, you’ll have a roadmap and strategies to get from here to there and you’ll begin to take courageous steps toward the livelihood that’s right for you.

Why me? Well, I’ve been down the road of career change, myself. I certainly wasn’t born with a clear “calling.” I picked my field in one, five-minute conversation when I was 17 years old. And while I knew as soon as I started working professionally that something was missing, it took me 20 years to try something different. I wish I’d known how much more quickly and easily I could find fulfillment, with the right help!

I have the credentials, too. I’m a Whole Person Certified Coach through Coach Training World and I’ve been practicing NVC since 2013—a discipline that helps people transform their negative self-talk and take actions that bring increasingly greater satisfaction.

Why wait another minute to connect with your calling and do what makes you come alive? Book a free, 30-minute strategy session today at www.saramcardle.com. Let’s go!

CIAO!
I’M CARLOTTA
FOUNDER OF WAVES OF CHANGE & YOUR LIFE DIRECTION COACH!

As a certified life direction coach, I believe in the waves of change we find our true direction. Either we choose to make a change or we are navigating trough difficulties in our life, I can tell you that every obstacle we experience will lead us to the right path. We might feel lost, or overwhelmed by the multiple possibilities we have in front of us, but when we are in alignment with our true selves, than even the most scary change can be faced with positivity and can bring us to that amazing stage of our life where we feel fulfilled, happy and in peace! And this is why I am here! to help you get crystal clear on your whys, give you all the tools you need to finally find your direction and live a life behind your wildest dreams!

MY STORY
For as long as I can remember, change has always been a primary factor in my life. Either because I decided to explore more, get to know different cultures and reality, or because it had been imposed on me.
As Joshua J. Marine said “Challenges are what make life interesting. Overcoming them is what makes life
meaningful”. And yes, with my ups and downs, everything was quite “interesting”! I got my master degree in International business, I had lived in 6 different countries, I had two changes of careers and I was than able to move to Hawaii. But I knew there was more of me to discover. My soul was screaming out to be heard amongst the chaos and busyness of my life, but I was not ready to listen, not yet! Until one day a big change was imposed to me: my soul mate left me.. That was the most devastating yet empowering experience of my entire life! Thanks to that experience…I WAS FINALLY READY TO FIND MY LIFE DIRECTION!
In that life changing experience I did the only thing that felt right for me: pray. I prayed for answers, I prayed for healing, I prayed for a better outcome, and the universe responded. I needed to go in worth and find find myself back, get crystal clear on my values, my strengths, my believes and use them to find my true direction, my purpose! I stayed positive and kept believing there was something better waiting for me, and that was on the other side of my fears. Luckily for me, I found life coaching and I learned valuable tools and strategies to
heal myself and get my power back. I worked on releasing my fears, I changed my belief system, I started recognizing the voice of my ego and than give more space to the voice of my soul. In few simple words I released all the blocks to the presence of my magic!
Today I am living a life behind my wildest dreams. I worked hard to get my coaching certification to be able to guide as many people as possible, to discover the magic within them and finally live a happy life. I know how scary and overwhelming can be to find yourself alone in those life changing moments, but luckily you don’t have to face all of this alone. I am here to help you find your true life direction and shine brighter than you ever did. Because if there is something I learned from all the life changing experiences of my life is that there is always a better plan awaiting for us, and each obstacles we encounter is just a detour in the right direction. Everything will be ok, you will be ok, you will be smiling again, you will love again and you will find your power back and finally be ready to shine!

As Marianne Williamson said: “We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others”

HOW I CAN HELP!
I believe we have all been brought to this World to shine bright and be happy, the way we do that is our own unique magic. I do believe we are all powerful behind our imagination, and in a World that teaches us to always plan for the worst is crucial we instead find our own direction to shine bright and manifest everything we want in life. Helping people to find that source of love, power, energy inside of them is what I’ve been brought to this world for. Is never to late to find your way in life, each obstacles you have encountered brought you closer to
what you are meant to be. This is the time for you to believe again, to fall in love, to dream big, to smile, to laugh, to leave fears behind, to realize whatever you put yourself into… to be stronger, to be healthier… to BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF!
If you are ready to invest in your dreams and finally find your power and shine bright than I am the right person for you!
