By all measures, I had a solid, dedicated staff or architects but I still found myself managing everything and chasing work opportunities.
“I was finding less time for the creative pursuit(s) that I love and cherish. I was exhausted and my energy was depleted.
I knew there had to be another way to approach running my architectural practice. It wasn’t until I met Rita that I understood this was all possible, and more.
Rita was able to unwrap my company’s great potential by asking the right questions and coaching me through her 7 key prosperity practices model of success. She tapped into several “limiting beliefs” that were hindering my ability to see clearly the true value of what I could build and helped me transform my thinking so I could find the path to self realization, joy and expansion. Her incredible guidance has been key to the complete transformation I have experienced within the last year.
Rita introduced me to the concept of co-creating a vision for AWA. She helped facilitate the process of co-creation and in doing so, it became clear that there were some major energy leaks and that some things needed to change. Once we articulated our company’s vision, we were able to clearly identify what was not in alignment and proceeded to put in place systems that allow us to move towards a more cohesive, productive, vibrant and impactful company.
The culture is now what we always dreamed it would be and we continue to attract the right types of projects and clients.
Rita has truly been a gift to me and my practice. Her open, positive and passionate guidance has been invaluable both at personal and professional levels. She really cares about her clients and is masterful at helping them find the way to a more joyful, purposeful and impactful way of being. The biggest gain for me has been the ability to pull back and allow the magic to unfold.
Born in Colombia, I came to the United States for college and graduate studies. I always knew I wanted to be an architect. I feel fortunate to have been able to own my architecture practice for the last 24 years and realize my life’s purpose.”

“I have great peace, but I have also started a whole new business and career that I love vs. being stuck as a wedding photographer.”
“Before working with Rita I was a successful wedding photographer, but was not inspired in pursuing it anymore. In addition, I was in a very toxic and manipulative relationship with money. I didn’t understand it. It was never there when I needed it, and was always leaving me. It seems I had nothing but bills coming in no matter what I did and I felt totally out of control. The stress, fear, and uncertainty was affecting my quality of life.
Then I signed up for Rita’s coaching program. Now it wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t over night, but slowly it was more then just my financial life that improved. From working with Rita I found out that a lot of my financial blocks stemmed from other issues in my life and after working on them my stress went down, my relationships improved, and money started freeing up and appearing faster then the bills.
Now I am not writing this testimonial so you sign up for coaching with Rita. Honestly, I would rather keep her all to myself. But I am writing this so Rita and the universe knows how thankful I am that she came into my life. I do not know where I would be without her!
I am no longer so stressed out and overwhelmed with money. Most importantly I have great peace, but I have also started a whole new business and career that I love vs. being stuck as a wedding photographer. I have founded Get Found Stock, a stock photography and social media content creation membership site. I already have numerous recurring memberships and sponsorships for the site.”

“Rita has the rare ability to command the room while providing guidance and support in an unobtrusive manner.”
“Having our organization grow so well in the last five years has been a “nice” problem to have, but it’s still a challenge. It is important for us that as we grow we ensure our organization operates from a shared vision and maintains the quality of our artistic programming.
Rita has the rare ability to command the room while providing guidance and support in an unobtrusive manner. As the Executive Director of Golden Thread Production, Rita’s presence was invaluable to me. I was able to sit back, reflect, and focus on participating while allowing Rita to help us articulate our individual visions for the organization. She then facilitated a group conversation helping us arrive at a shared vision. She then assisted us in prioritizing our objectives and developing common goals.
By the end of the retreat, we had a powerful, shared Vision, a 5-year vision for the organization, and prioritized achievable goals.
We look forward to working with Rita on our continued growth and success!

“My entire life, professionally, financially, personally… has evolved and flourished.”
“Prior to working with Rita, I worked around the clock trying to achieve financial success that eluded me. I had lost connection to my family and our cherished time together. I knew that things needed to change.
From the first workshop that I attended in November 2017, ‘Magnetizing Success and Prosperity Planning Intensive: Igniting the Miraculous’ to Rita’s Coaching, and our VIP days, my entire life, professionally, financially, personally… has evolved and flourished.
In a relatively short time together, Rita helped me see my value as a professional. I realized I needed to increase my fees so they were in alignment with the value I was providing for my clients!
Immediately following the ‘Magnetizing Success and Prosperity Planning Intensive’ workshop, I made the decision to return to Curaçao and offer my services as a Business Coach. I always knew I had the ability to coach and I just needed that little piece of self-trust that I was missing.
Beginning in January 2018 I began offering my new services as a Business Coach and charging what I knew I was worth. I immediately began to feel less stressed.
I am now coaching the management team of one of my customers, consisting of 4 managers and the CEO!
My business has grown financially, and I will reach my financial target this year. I also have an assistant who helps me out with some projects. That also gives a sense of relief that I do not have do it all myself.
Finally, I no longer work on the weekends!”

“I now see that my limiting beliefs were running my life and that was the reason I was continually on the verge of creating abundance instead of actually manifesting it.”
I had the limited belief that I couldn’t earn money without being partnered with my ex-husband. This left me feeling helpless, hopeless and dis-empowered.
My new empowering belief is that I can create lucrative business opportunities with grace and ease.
As a result of Rita’s coaching I closed an $8600 (3-day) consulting deal then added an additional $2400 from another client in the same city.
I now see that my limiting beliefs were running my life and that was the reason I was continually on the verge of creating abundance instead of actually manifesting it. I am embracing what I learned and saying my new belief to myself daily, and am watching great things happen in my life!”

“Rita helped me get out of my own way and created an environment where I could make this happen. My forecast through the end of 2015 indicates I’ll be at 140% of my 2014 revenue!”
“At the beginning of 2015, I wanted to increase my business 50% over 2014. Rita felt that goal was way too low and suggested I give myself a stretch goal of 200% over my 2014 revenue. Wow! The amazing thing was when we really sat and analyzed my business and worked through all the possibilities of what was attainable for new and continuing business across the year, it made sense. What a confidence boost! What a motivating belief to get out of my own way and really take it to the next level.
I have negotiated several deals this year where I charged more than I would have. Rita was sitting on my shoulder telling me to charge what I’m worth…and they said yes without hesitation!
My forecast through the end of 2015 indicates I’ll be at 140% of my 2014 revenue! Rita helped me get out of my own way and created an environment where I could make this happen. AND, I took over 50 days of vacation!
Thanks, Rita, for moving me beyond what I thought was possible.”

“Of all the coaching I have ever done, Rita is who I keep coming back to.”
“When I first met Rita, I was a realtor experiencing frustrations and doubts about my ability to be financially successful. Today I serve as the Vice President and Managing Broker of two office locations, am considered an industry leader at the local and state levels, and have grown my own personal real estate team. I also own two retail businesses and an income property. My business success is a byproduct of my vision, creativity, and ability to take powerful action every single day—all guided by Rita.

She has a special gift for seeing possibilities in her clients and these past six months I’ve felt her holding me accountable to my vision in a way that was empowering and uplifting, never heavy-handed.
Thanks to Rita, I am well on my way to launching a new program, and building a solid support team to help me make it all happen with ease. Overwhelm has been replaced by excitement and trepidation with a new understanding and confidence in the value of my work.”

“Rita helped us discover where our energy leaks were – in the last 8 months, our revenues increased by 44% !”
“Since we began working with Rita, in the last 8 months our revenues increased by 44% and our net profit increased by 132% compared to the same 6 month period last year. Our biggest challenge in our business was working way too many hours. We wanted to find a way in which we could work smarter and still deliver high quality and on-time deliverables. In our work with Rita, we defined our focus and decided to create a company culture that had the qualities of Ease, Trust and Excellence. Rita helped us discover where our energy leaks were, both inside the company and with our mindset.
Rita is incredibly insightful. We feel this is born from listening and hearing us. Her recommendations are personal to us and spot-on for our business. She distills things down to the simple essence and helps us determine what our focus should be to achieve success. Rita celebrates our uniqueness and embraces it, and helps us figure out how to make it all happen. We love working with you Rita!”

“The clarity and direction I received awakened a vision I would never have imagined. Working with Rita propelled me into action!”
“Working with Rita was incredibly valuable in a way that was completely unexpected. She not only provided content and tools that are now powerfully guiding and strengthening my brand, but she also led me to see a much bigger picture for myself, my business and my life.
The clarity and direction I received opened up a vision that I would never have imagined and propelled me into action! Now I am not only helping individuals live a life of wellness, but I am also being a catalyst for altering the medical industry as we know it.
This kind of breakthrough has occurred often in working with Rita. Her intuition, insightful questions, and deep spiritual connection enabled me to experience my Higher Self at a whole new level – to more deeply connect to my life purpose. Extraordinary!”

“I’ve stepped up to a whole new level in my business, overcoming a block I’ve had for years!”
“Rita has the gift of being able to see deeply into who I am, which for me is essential. I have found very, very few coaches who truly get me, and as a result, appropriately coach me. Rita did that for me beautifully and championed me to step into a role that was far beyond what I could see for myself.
Her insight, confidence and belief in me allowed me to step up to a whole new level in my business, overcoming a block I have had for years. After signing up for Rita’s coaching program, I made back my investment in just three months! And I’m continuing to bring in money from my new work at a higher level than I ever expected, thanks to Rita’s coaching, support and insight. Thank you, thank you, thank you Rita!”

“Rita is voraciously committed to the truth about who I am and what my mission is here on earth.”
“As a spiritual teacher, I found that my biggest challenge was in creating the vision and structure for my work and putting myself ‘out there.’ I knew I had a larger vision, I wanted to express who I truly was, and create momentum but I was hesitant, and unsure.
I also needed to build a website that truly expressed who I am and create momentum to get the word out. Rita helped me do all those things. It wasn’t all easy, and sometimes I didn’t like what she said, but I followed her guidance and it worked!
Through our work together I have clarity around my vision and I own my gifts as a spiritual teacher, mentor and healer. Since January, I established a new marketing plan, rebranded my work, logo, and website. I have developed and launched a new 7 week course, various program and coaching programs, and published an e-book. In response to the need for collective healing and growth, I created and host two programs; the Circle of Compassion and Roadside Assistance on the Path of Life, a Facebook LIve Event. I have booked 2 speaking engagements at upcoming conferences, have enrolled 8 participants in group programs and 7 private clients. My income has increased by $15k and have a complete framework for my business and am living (and teaching) my divine study.
Her public events have also been super powerful. Rita’s presence and the synergy that is created is very empowering and inspirational. The work we did at her WealthyMind Training and Consciousness Intensive was a game changer for me. Rita held the space for me during a very powerful exercise around changing a specific belief that freed me from what was holding me back in terms of my personal power and my ability to see the truth and express it.
Thank you Rita!”

“Rita’s insistence on clarity with numbers had me discover that my net worth was $250k more than I’d thought. And it just keeps getting better!”
“In just a short time in working with Rita, I developed a solid prosperity consciousness that continues to have me attract miracles!
I also received a much more positive performance review and a higher bonus than I’d anticipated. I sold my condo in 4 days for $25k over the asking price. I found my dream home that exceeded my expectations 5 days after closing my condo. A job opportunity that was more aligned with my heart’s desires was created especially for me.

“In Rita, I have a trusting partner who always has my best interest in mind”
“Rita’s authenticity and integrity is incredibly powerful and transforming! Her focus on tangible outcomes with a Spirit-based approach encouraged me to invest in myself. I was drawn to Rita after I observed her in action at an intensive, and in just one month of coaching I have experienced a flow of abundance, both personally and professionally.
I now better understand and appreciate my relationship with money. She helped me not only define and clarify my own unique qualities, but also understand and appreciate other people’s relationships with money. I was moving in with my boyfriend at the time, and Rita’s coaching helped keep us in harmony through our transition. She helped me release my past family history with money, step into my power and allow my light to shine brightly.
In Rita, I have a trusting partner who always has my best interest in mind. I have an increased sense of confidence about the future and I feel as if a gateway of abundance has opened up to me. I am noticing miracles every day!”

“Since working with Rita, my monthly cash flow has consistently doubled!”
“Words seem inadequate to articulate fully the positive impact that Rita has had on my business, my life and my marriage. As a person seeking support in getting to the next level, I feel extremely fortunate to have found Rita, someone who fully sees me at all levels: intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and commercially.
Since working with Rita my monthly cash flow has consistently doubled (and in some cases, tripled), I have attracted new opportunities to speak to larger audiences, negotiated excellent fees and terms, and most importantly have been empowered to say “no” with grace and ease when an opportunity does not feel congruent. I have never been so organized and productive as I am now and I feel every day more connected to my purpose.”

“This is the most business I have ever had in my career!”
“The increase in our business is fabulous. We have 22 deals in escrow and we are closing 10-12 loans next month. And we have more than 50 more deals in pipeline!
As you might have guessed from these numbers, my business just exploded right after I met Rita and has continued every day since. I am doing everything I can just to keep up. This is the most business I have ever had in my career – I am thrilled.
The limiting belief I had is gone. I felt a huge shift, and since that time I haven’t looked back.”

“I am generating more income, and my work is expanding into new dimensions I had only imagined.”
“As soon as I met Rita, I trusted her integrity and felt a resonance with her passion for helping people from a very sincere place in her heart. In one day with Rita, we managed to create a clear vision and master plan for my business and give me the sense of direction I had been longing for.

“You helped me develop a game plan to ask for what I want…and I made an additional $15K in income that week!”
“First, I had a breakthrough around my fear of asking for what I want. Then I had the powerful revelation that I have the right to my voice. You helped me develop a game plan to make requests to the appropriate channels and ask for what I want. I made the requests and within one week I began getting the “cream” leads, resulting in an additional $15K in income that week.
The best part is that with your support, I was able to do all of this with such ease and grace. Rita, it is an amazing feeling to know you are holding a huge space for me and there is SO much yet for me to grow and experience.”

“We brought in an additional $10K to our business in one month!”
“As a direct result of implementing the strategies and practices that Rita taught us, my husband and I brought in an additional $10,000 to our business in one month. And it was easy and joy-filled, because we were in alignment with the spiritual and practical principles that she teaches. I’m very grateful for Rita’s grounded, clear and loving approach and of course for the results!”

“Rita’s coaching has been the catalyst for my entire life’s transition. Her approach of practicality, business sense and action mixed with spiritual principles was the formula I was looking for… and it provided results.”
“Prior to working with Rita I had been in a lot of transition, financially and creatively ‘surviving.’ I needed an outside perspective, support and clarity. What I love about Rita is the first question she asked me in my time of distress was, ‘What do you KNOW?’ Most people think they have all the answers, but Rita empowered me from the very beginning.
Her approach of practicality, business sense and action mixed with spiritual principles was the formula I was looking for… and it provided results. I signed up for a writing course, and have written a coffee table book. I created a brand called An Inspired Path, and my overall income has doubled! Rita’s coaching has been the catalyst for my entire life’s transition. She believed in me in a way no one in this world has, seeing what I couldn’t see myself, then she stood next to me as I walked across the threshold toward abundance, purpose and passion. Now I am no longer surviving; I am THRIVING personally, emotionally, financially and professionally.”

“Rita provided a path to gratitude which has shifted everything in a positive way. For the first time in my life I’m truly grateful for the amazing work and life I have created. I’ve finally stopped trying to be someone I wasn’t meant to be.”
“I was in crisis mode, no longer wanting to work for my current company because I hated it and always felt ‘less than.’ I thought the only way out was to retire early, but after attending three different events with Rita, everything changed. Now I no longer believe I need to retire to find happiness. I started working part time, making enough money to have fun and live a full life. The things that caused me angst for years I simply stopped doing. With my new flexible schedule I’ve been able to take several vacations with my retired husband and fulfill my heart’s need for the wilderness, bicycling and human connection. Community work is also something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, so I started working at a local soup kitchen. It was hard at first, but it has propelled all areas of my life forward. I also completely changed my website to reflect my new business model, attracting the clients I WANT to work with.

Women, Power & Body Esteem Testimonials
“I have more presence and confidence”
“Being certified in WPBE has given me more presence and confidence, as well as adding elements to my work that have an ‘attraction factor.’ The last three proposals I wrote for personal coaching have been $11,000 – $20,000 proposals and two have been accepted immediately. Only one of these actually includes some elements of WPBE, and yet in all of them, it is the way that I am showing up now – as a result of doing the work myself – that is making all the difference. I am seeing much faster results.
Additionally, it helps create juicy topics. As of last week, I have nine speaking gigs booked this year, across many branches of a metropolitan women’s business network.”
– Sue Tsigaros, WP&BE Certified Coach
“I felt a breakthrough in compassion for my own body”
“The Women, Power & Body Esteem program empowered me to find body esteem – authentically and completely! Truly, this is the most profound, deep and vulnerable work I’ve done.
My energies were blocked by years of stories I created about what it means to be a woman – an ideal woman worthy of love and affection. These blocked energies kept me in a state frustration and resentment. In this program, we dispelled the collective unconscious notion of what society says it means to be a woman, and I was able to create my own new and authentic expression.
With my body, there was a major disconnect from my neck down. Having to be with my bare self, both figuratively and literally, was a breakthrough in the area of vulnerability and compassion for my own body. I reclaimed my inner power and renewed my commitment to self by expression of who I am in this world.”
– Susan Jentzch, WP&BE Certified Coach
“I finally quieted the constant critiques that I had about my body”
“My biggest takeaway from the Women, Power & Body Esteem workshop was a greater amount of love and appreciation for my body. I had never really thought about giving love, appreciation and kindness to myself, only to others. It allowed me to listen more to myself, my intuition, trust it, and care more for myself. That really rocked my world.
Having greater access to my intuition has made a tremendous difference in how I show up in relationships and my professional life. This program also quieted the nattering and constant critiques that I had about my thick legs, round backside and unique nose. Now I appreciate those body parts and what makes me ME…strong, powerful, womanly and beautiful.”
