My attitude toward my career has changed. I don’t doubt myself and make excuses anymore. I don’t feel like a failure anymore. I feel energized and motivated to keep taking the next step. I like having steps to follow and a process to trust so I don't get overwhelmed.
“Carissa is a smart, caring, and compassionate person who is committed to excellence in everything she does. I’ve had the privilege of working with Carissa in several different ways and have witnessed her dedication as an author, speaker, trainer, coach, and most importantly, a friend.
When she decides to pursue something important to her, she’s an unstoppable force, and yet she does it with wisdom and grace while encouraging others along the way. She’s a brilliant businesswoman who’s gifted in both casting a huge vision and being able to break things down into manageable pieces so the right things get done and the vision comes to pass. It’s extremely rare to see people operate with excellence in both, and Carissa seems to do it with ease.
Aside from her professional life, what I admire most is how Carissa does it all while being 100% committed to her priority, her family. As busy as she gets, she doesn’t permit herself to be so consumed by her work that she neglects the people who matter most to her; her husband and children.”

Carissa helped me see that my old patterns aren't loving. They're fear-based and straight-up UNKIND. #mindblown
Her words have helped me approach sales calls, client interactions, and even family relationships in a totally new way.
"I felt inadequate to follow my dreams and didn't know where to look for help. After working with Carissa I definitely felt more confident in myself, my abilities, and my future. Carissa is an amazing mentor who will be there for your success. The entire experience has been amazing."
Carissa's program ended up being the missing piece in my life. My whole mindset on myself, my worth, my work, and my focus has shifted. To say that everything has changed understates it. What I’ve done doesn’t just affect my career, it's affecting my entire life.
“I was in a job that I liked, but it didn’t provide me with the life I truly wanted. I wanted freedom and the opportunity to impact people on a much larger scale. I was trying to learn the “secret” on how to escape my 9-5, while still providing for my family.
I felt stuck and could tell it was impacting me in other areas of my life, too! I was double-minded, trying to balance my full-time gig and the one that I truly wanted.
Carissa, with one question, changed my perspective on my situation. By simply asking me when I was going to take the next step (and sharing her personal journey), gave me the confidence to take the leap on my own.
I was able to quit my job and am now happily doing what I love…helping other kids find their passion and using their natural strengths and abilities to reach their full potential.
Carissa has a heart of gold and is 100% in your corner. She truly cares about your results. In a world where so much fake authenticity exists, Carissa embodies a selfless persona…and I can’t recommend her enough!“
"Carissa really connects with readers in a way that leaves you heard, understood, and encouraged. You won't want to stop reading!"
"Carissa is one of my favorite contributors. Not only is she a beautiful writer but she's also a brilliant storyteller. No matter the topic or format, she nails it. It's a joy to read her work, and I'm looking forward to the day I can read more of it."
“When I took the leap to reach out to Carissa, I was burnt out in my job, with no idea how to get out, while quietly hoping that one day I could pursue my bigger dreams that always seemed too big to achieve.
Being burnt out and overstretched in a job is exhausting. The stress affected every area of my life – my marriage, my relationship with my children, my health and my spiritual well-being. I was empty and going through the motions without a plan to make a change.
I cannot explain how transformational it was to work with Carissa. I have worked with multiple therapists, attended spiritual retreats, and read numerous self-help books in the hope of overcoming past trauma. Some of those activities helped, some of them were short-term band-aids, and some of those were simply a waste of time. Working with Carissa, however, was far and away one of the best investments of my life.
Carissa helped me identify that my fundamental blind spot was my view of self. Because of my abilities and accomplishments, it was hard for others and myself to recognize how warped my self-image was. But deep at my core, I was still fighting the messages that childhood and even adult trauma ingrained in me.
Carissa’s coaching and her program fundamentally changed my outlook on life in a way that I did not understand was possible. I have more self-confidence, I have more patience and joy as a mother, and I was able to walk away from a stress-filled job and begin to pursue my long-held career goals.
I didn’t know what to expect from coaching, and I was nervous making such a big investment, especially with someone I barely knew. I am so grateful I went with my gut and joined Carissa’s program.
Both Carissa and her program far exceeded my expectations and I cannot recommend her or her program highly enough.”
“Carissa was second to none when it comes to customer service, communication and professionalism. Not only did she deliver as promise, but she helped set aside *any* fears I had. Thank you, thank you!”
“Carissa is an absolute joy to work with! Not only is she creative and full of unique ideas, but she also is a quick thinker and problem solver. She always goes above and beyond not only what is asked for, but what is envisioned. I recommend her to everyone I know!”
“Carissa is a true professional. It’s clear that Carissa cares deeply about the satisfaction of her clients. She is on-time with projects and very responsive. She does excellent work and I would recommend her to anyone.”
Carissa is amazing! I don’t work well or accomplish things with people who tiptoe around me. I will never grow or achieve the things I want to achieve if I’m working with someone who’s too afraid to tell me what I really need to hear. I need people to be direct and honest and communicate with me and Carissa is amazing about that.
“Carissa was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She listened to exactly what my vision was and then guided me through the whole process – while offering thoughtful and helpful suggestions or questions along the way. She responded to emails and calls quickly. It is clear that she is dedicated to providing a great product and great customer service. Plus, she is just a nice person – the kind of person you’ll enjoy working with.”
