Hi, my name is Paula (boomer). In 2016, I left a two-decade career in investment banking to follow my dream of being a catalyst for others to propel themselves in the direction of becoming their best selves. I founded Celestial Strategy that offers High Performance Coaching, Kundalini Yoga and Energy healing to support others to boldly, vulnerably and courageously embody life and new experiences. We can overcome our own suffering by believing that we are enough, being grateful and taking responsibility for using and sharing our gifts to create happiness.

Over the years, Emer has modeled what it is to be a loving wife, a successful career...
Hi everyone, I’m Sabina Reinhardt, founder and owner of Rocketing Life and Rocketing Role Models, living in my favorite place: New York City. I launched Rocketing Role Models since creating a community where we, as women, can share our stories and build each other up is very close to my heart. I truly believe we are all role models on a day to day basis. With our actions and behaviors, we set examples for others to follow in our footsteps.

No matter how small it seems to you,...
Hi, my name is Larissa! I’m a millennial High Performance Coach and Success Strategist in the United States who focuses on helping entrepreneurs reach their highest potential in all that they do in both life and business. My hobbies are traveling both domestically and internationally (I travel full-time and I don’t have a home base!), trying new cuisines (I’m a major foodie!), and spending time with the people who matter most to me. My motto in life is to lead by design as I am all about lifestyle design. My husband and I have set up our businesses in such a way that they are nearly 100% outsourced and automated, which allows us to “work” only on the things that we’re truly passionate about.
I’ve developed a love and passion for leadership and training through my experience in owning an eCommerce business alongside my husband. I attribute most of my success to engrossing myself in personal development all throughout my career. Because I...
