WELCOME TO THE Y.O.U. COLLECTIVE

 

The Y.O.U. Collective was created with the intention of bringing together incredible human beings to create and live their vision. As Y.O.U. stands for: Your vision. Our world. Unlimited Potential.

I wanted to create a certification program that didn’t exist. One that brought together people from different professional and cultural backgrounds with a rich mix of life experiences and desires.

I envisioned professionals wishing to acquire coaching tools to increase the impact they already have in the world.

I also saw the future of coaching, with Y.O.U. Collective coaches at the forefront, creating thriving coaching practices built on their values, mission, and vision.

A collective of people with heart and a commitment to living life to the fullest, and helping others to do the same.  

The Y.O.U. Collective was what I wished was out there when I started out as a coach. And thanks to one of my then clients, Alexa Mazzarello, now a member of the faculty, I was literally asked to turn the vision into a reality.

The Y.O.U. Collective is formed by a wonderful group of individuals here to serve you. Learn more about the coaches and faculty members and what they have to offer. Discover the men and women from Quebec to Texas to California to British Columbia. Experts from a variety of fields; naturopathy, yoga, osteopathy, nutrition, fitness, photography, social media, branding, finance, and more!

May we inspire and empower you to live a life that you love and provide you with just what you need to get there!

Coaching Foundations & The Y.O.U. Philosophy

I remember when this program was but a dream. I had seen a gap in the coaching industry and wanted to fill it with what I envisioned to be my dream program. I wanted to bring together amazing individuals, both as students and faculty to create a collective. Driving home one day I had a flash of that vision and put it all on paper. Today, the Y.O.U. Collective Coach Certification is beyond what I could have dreamed of.

I am excited to guide you in creating the vision and goals for you life. To give you the tools to become the best coach that you can be, whether you use these tools as a supplement to your professional endeavours or embark on making coaching your main focus. My goal is to bring out the best version of you, shine light on what excites you the most to share with the world, and get it out there.

When you join the program, not only do you benefit from world-class instruction, you become part of a community for life! I look forward to working with you and making what seems impossible possible for your life.

When accepted into the 2018 program you will get access to the modules mentioned below from the 2017 program on top of all the incredible modules Melissa, and other surprise guests, will share with you in 2018!

2- COACHING FOR GREATNESS

3- SHARING YOUR GIFTS WITH THE WORLD

Making money and changing the world. Creating a coaching business with endless income potential for you and your life! It is my goal to support you in creating a business and life that you love. One that supports your area of greatness and how you want to make a difference for others. All the while creating abundance in your life such that freedom and grace are continuously present in all areas.

4- COMMUNITY
