Inspiration with Val
Hi! I’m Val.
I’m the person who will help you create a life that makes you jump out of bed every morning with a permanent smile and ongoing sense of excitement.
I’m a life coach, career coach, speaker, and podcast host living in sweet home Chicago next to beautiful Lake Michigan.
I would love nothing more than to help you increase your confidence, get clarity, dream big, and take massive action.
“Everybody needs a coach.”
- Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google
I’ve devoted my life to inspiring others to enhance all aspects of their lives and begin to live a life with no regrets.
When you work with me, you will become energized, more appreciative of each moment in your daily life, and be more present and mindful, and you will take action and achieve things that you barely dreamed were possible. You will overcome fear, take bold action, and become the best version of yourself.
Through collaborative coaching exercises, you will have an opportunity to think about yourself – your strengths, skills, interests, and life experiences – in new ways that will lead you to many exciting personal discoveries.
I am here to remind you that you are truly capable of anything in life.. Now is your chance to take advantage of your many innate talents and abilities and go after everything you have always wanted in life.
My question for you is: What would you do differently – what dreams would you go after – what course correction would you make – if you knew you would be successful and could not fail?
Together, we will make the impossible possible.
