Hi, I’m Farnoosh Brock, President and Founder of Prolific Living. I am a business coach, an executive coach, a mentor to online business owners, a speaker, and the author of two Amazon best-selling books and the creator of two dozen online products and programs to help you live your life with purpose, fulfillment and success. I also have 11+ years of technical and leadership experience from corporate America.
But my real bragging right is that I’ve helped hundreds of remarkable souls tap into their true authentic powers, walk their true professional paths, pursue what they were meant to do in life and get paid extremely well for it.
Now, can I tell you how I created my success and happiness?
By investing in myself through coaches and mentors with my hard-earned cash and over a period of time. This is admittedly after first resisting the idea of paying for a coach for a miserably long time, trying to do it all “on my own” – the heroic approach – and taking one too many detours before finding my way to real success with the right coaches!
My results from coaching have been absolutely essential in building my 6-figure business and location independent lifestyle – if I’m not on the phone with one of my amazing clients or writing, I’m either practicing yoga or on the business seat – no more economy, thank you – of a plane going somewhere!
Working with private business coaches introduced me to foolproof systems, authentic sales techniques, business fundamentals and actual success secrets that I now use daily to empower my own clients. I love watching them break through their limitations, create continued success with a sense of fulfillment in their own businesses and professions.

I was the biggest skeptic about coaching, until the day I hired my first coach. Let me explain.
A Little Confession: Coaching has helped me unleash my real success, happiness and freedom both in my personal and professional life. If you are not investing in yourself, you will reach a plateau and stay behind.
Over the years, I’ve had several coaches and mentors as well as heavy participation in mastermind groups of various kind. Each have played a key role to help me past my own limiting beliefs and challenges. I believe in coaching wholeheartedly, as do all massively successful people in this world. What about you?
Here’s a distinction: As I remind all my clients, you do not NEED a coach! You are perfectly capable of doing it all on your own. It may take a lot longer, cost a lot more money, and be unnecessarily harder, but still, you do not need a coach.
Now if you *WANT* a coach who believes in you, who holds you fully accountable, who guides you precisely in the direction of your goals and dream by keeping you focused and showing you how to create the highest expression of yourself through your work and your art, and by proving that you are capable of serving your purpose in this world and making a profit at it, then we should talk. I can help.
I walk my talk. Everything I coach you on, I’ve done first hand and become an expert through experience. If we work together, I show you all my success and failures so you can duplicate it for your own success.
My story: I went from a successful corporate employee to a multi-passionate entrepreneur and twice published author with a profitable business in less than 2 years.
I resigned from my 6-figure job May of 2011 and hired my husband full-time into our business out of his 6-figure job in December 2012.
I tell you this because if I’ve done it, so can you. If you don’t know how but are willing to find out, I can help you.
If you want to learn how 2 ex-electrical engineers (me and my hubby) – who only ever learned how to be good old employees – left corporate life behind and created a freedom lifestyle with their own business, dozens of income streams and balance it all a world travel schedule to boot, I can help you.
My success was not accidental or lucky. It can be replicated, repeated, and taught and followed. You can apply the same success principles to YOUR business aspirations or your career and get similar if not better results. If that interests you, my coaching program may just be right for you.
Here’s what you get in my coaching program that most “elite” and “highly sought after” coaches would never give you: ALL my secrets to success.
Because as my client, you deserve to know everything about how I made it. And I know that the more I empower you, the more we both win.
Success is not a zero-sum game. I am here to create a whole lot of it for you.
You can ask how I left my 6-figure job, how I got the publishing deal for my first book, how I wasted money and made expensive mistakes early in my corporate career and in my business, how I recovered from the setbacks, how I got my second publishing deal, how I quadrupled my blog traffic and sign-up rates, or how I create programs and products and services that sell every day and how I quadrupled my income at the start of 2015.
I share it all if it’s relevant and useful to you. I open the curtain and let you see everything because, you know what? I can’t stand it when I pay for an expensive program or hire a coach only to get basic fluff without any real juicy secrets behind the true success of the person I admire. Can you?
What some of my clients shared about working together
Kareem Elsayed, Senior Instructional Designer at a top multinational technology company I started working with Farnoosh to help me move forward in my online business. As we made progress, she uncovered that my true deeper desire and ambition was to increase my income. We worked together on my current job – to see if what type of opportunities were available. When we exhausted all options she helped me get clear on what I wanted in a new job. When it came time for negotiations, I consulted Farnoosh and she helped prepare me for the crucial conversation. In the end, I wound up working for a very famous tech company and getting a 30% raise.
Dr. Tuesday Bigelow, Cosmetic Surgeon & Entrepreneur I discovered Farnoosh when I purchased her juice book and began reading her blog and was intrigued with her passion for health and her love for travel. My profession is different than most of her clients but I had some career decisions to work through and felt I needed some coaching. I wasn’t sure she could help me but after a an introductory call, I knew she was my gal. I chose to work with her on a one on one basis for over a year. Farnoosh was exhilarated to step out into a different world to work with me. She makes sure you stay focused and she has a great ability to mindmap the order of steps to achieving your goal. She is very flexible and adaptable to her clients and makes herself available to you between sessions to accommodate you in any way that she can. Farnoosh is super organized, efficient, and insightful with an uncanny ability to ask the right questions to get to the root of a road block. We sorted through my career issues and solved those so quickly that we were able to move onto my side dream project and took that it from an idea in its infancy to a finished product! Farnoosh has a contagious energy and enthusiasm about her that immediately uplifts you! She is so grounded and her voice is so calming. Just take a sneak peek at her affirmations programs and you will understand. She was both a business coach and a life coach to me. We worked on everything from my business, career to juicing, yoga and positive affirmations. I loved every minute of our work together. During 15 months of coaching, doors were falling open for me and I believe it is because of principles she taught me. She will not disappoint and coaching with her is one of the best investments I’ve made in myself in years!
Taisuke Yamamoto, Director at Geezerbuild Private Limited (UK & SG) and Faction Entertainment Ptd Ltd When I first approached Farnoosh I expected logical, insightful, and thoughtful advice about my business & career goals. What I got went far beyond my expectations, as Farnoosh changed the way I thought about not only my career, but my life as a whole and my vision. Within a few months I can honestly say that I’ve become a more thoughtful, happier, productive, and focused person.
I came to her coaching as an extremely busy entrepreneur who was managing multiple businesses, and I had thrown away my ‘social life’ and drudged on with 15 hour work days. I had yet more goals (writing a book) that I wanted to accomplish and asked Farnoosh for help in aligning my direction and to keep me accountable for my tasks.
Right from the start I realized that I was being coached by an extremely talented and compassionate person. Farnoosh will push you to find clarity – Why do you want this goal? What underlying reason is there in taking this career path? How do we plan this? What can I do to help you? Farnoosh will ensure that you prepare a concrete plan and inspire & motivate you to keep pursuing your dreams and successes. She will always be there to guide you through the tough times, but at the same time will keep you accountable..she won’t let you slack, and that was perfect for me to stay productive.
For my coaching journey in particular, Farnoosh found a key insight during our calls that I would never have figured out myself : I was doing too many things, burning out, and not working on what was ‘essential’. Farnoosh slowly guided me through a process that has made me much more directed towards doing only the essential things in my career, and I feel that positive shift will stay with me and grow my businesses indefinitely. Not just in business in fact, Farnoosh made me see that my personal health and happiness had to be taken care of in order for me to have a fulfilling career and life for the long term.
I found the coaching style very suited to my needs as Farnoosh was flexible in her schedule, and helpful at all times (for example I would email her a quick business issue I had, and she would respond with great insight into the next steps I should take). By pure coincidence Farnoosh and I were in the same country traveling, and I had the honor of meeting her in person for lunch! She was exactly how I had imagined: fun, smart, and an amazingly positive person to be around.
In summary, what I got from the coaching with Farnoosh was real results: I am on track with my book goal, I’m living healthier, happier, and my business revenue has actually doubled since I began working with her. This was the first ever ‘coaching’ I had invested into, and I feel I’ve been very lucky to have taken the leap to be coached by Farnoosh. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone who is seeking a positive change.
Bruce Rodgers, On Resigning from a 25+ year Corporate Career to Go Solo I have been working directly with Farnoosh for 4+ months, and WOW — what an incredible experience! From our introductory call, she immediately put me at ease in speaking with her about my desire to move on to my own dreams and ideas, even when I hadn’t completely thought them through. She worked skillfully, diligently, and patiently with me to identify my passions and skills, and the resultant strengths. Right from coaching session #1, I felt super confident in her experience, skill, enthusiasm, positive “move forward” attitude, and concern about me, her client. What’s really outstanding is that it’s not just “rah-rah” cheerleading, which was my biggest hesitation with engaging a career coach. The fact that Farnoosh has actually DONE what she is teaching in her “practice-based” coaching and the Smart Exit Blueprint class gives her an instant measure of credibility – it’s what helped to sell me. Of course there’s a necessary element of cheering (which she is amazing at), BUT it’s eclipsed by Farnoosh’s practical, well-thought out, careful STRATEGIC planning required for a SUCCESSFUL career transformation. She recognized the work I put into it, and once the planning was done, she knew exactly how much to “praise”, and how much to “push”, to create real results, to take me to the next level. And, it’s WORKING; it’s been life-changing: I just RESIGNED from my 16-year Corporate position, and am fully on my way to doing my own gig, following the PLAN, and I am more excited than ever. And as independent and “extreme” of an analyst as I am, I honestly don’t think I could have done it without her. She knows what she’s talking about. She ROCKS!
Laurel Staples, REDpodcast.com Farnoosh Brock’s personality is magnetic. She is smart, insightful, and deeply passionate about helping other entrepreneurs express their gifts and talents through growing thriving businesses. If you’re ready to go full-time with your business or simply start making more money doing what you love, Farnoosh is your gal to learn from. Her approach to life and business is fresh, holistic and most importantly, it WORKS to help turn your dreams into a reality.
Julie Grauel I decided to work with Farnoosh to help me get more confident in my sales conversations. We worked not only on how to improve my sales conversations but also on my packaging and pricing, and the things that were holding me back from success. She was very generous in sharing her experiences and great at holding me accountable each week. Outside of our coaching calls, she was quick to respond whenever I had questions or needed some additional support, which I really appreciated. Her husband Andy was also a great resource when I had questions about how to do something on my website and very accommodating with his time. As a result of our work together I have a lot more clarity and confidence about how to approach prospects and how to respond to them. I would recommend Farnoosh to any business owner looking to take their business to the next level.
Vickie Velasquez & Larissa Galenes, Vegetarian Zen We had reached a point in our business development at which we felt “stuck”, and thought that a business coach could help us to move forward. During our initial consultation, Farnoosh asked us tough and insightful questions about our business, clientele and goals. Throughout our coaching, Farnoosh continued to provide guidance which helped us gain a sense of clarity and direction that could have taken us months (possibly years!) to figure out on our own. While we still have a lot of work ahead of us, our time with Farnoosh provided the jump-start we needed to take our business to the next level.
Eric Sheetz, On Implementing an Exit Plan from a Corporate into Self-Employment I sought coaching from Farnoosh because she has accomplished something that I have not yet done. She was exited from her corporate job on her own terms and appears the happier because of it. I want to do the same. In our work together she has helped me to discover my hidden talents. Armed with this discovery my objective now feels within reach. Farnoosh has the courage to try new ideas so our coaching sessions are customized and unique to my needs. In our frequent email correspondence and our phone session calls, Farnoosh invites and works through disagreement. She has no interest in being anyone’s guru. Her approach is to offer assistance. She is organized and doesn’t forget the commitments I make to myself. In working together she has learned how to nudge me along effectively and remain accountable to my plans and my success.
Kim Nightingale, Owner at Nightingale’s Notes I have worked in corporate for my entire live and I have strong opinions on many issues. Because I am a doer, my biggest fear was that after I invested in the coaching program, I would find myself resisting the techniques or not see the value in them. When I finally made the decision to do the program, I made a promise to myself to let go and just follow the process. I am so glad that I did! The 3 month journey took us in a very different direction from the original outline I had brought to the table. The reason I say ‘us’ is because working with Farnoosh is truly a team effort. Farnoosh helped me to realize that she can guide and give great suggestions, but I had to do the homework and know what works best with my management style. She gives 100% of her time and energy and often surprised me with emails filled with tools that pushed me into a whole new way of thinking. She even worked with me to put out my first e-Book! Farnoosh is someone that truly wants to see you to succeed. She gets genuinely excited about the progress of your projects. I can’t wait to work with her again!
Barbara Jackson, On Gaining Confidence that Let Her Get New Top Clients Last year, I made the decision to take a leap of faith and quit my corporate job. It was by no means easy, but in every way, it was the right thing to do for me. At first things didn’t take off the way that I had imagined they would. So I started to lose faith in myself and my business. My confidence was down and I seriously needed support. Through some online searching, I came across Farnoosh’s coaching program and saw that she had also taken a similar leap of faith out of her corporate job and I just knew I had to meet her and get her guidance. I had never done any career coaching before and I had no idea what to expect, especially since it would have to be over the phone (as we are in different continents!). I was surprised by how quickly Farnoosh was able to identify the areas that I needed to work on. We worked through these challenges successfully, one by one – from negotiating with my new clients to building my own personal self-esteem, to getting me back to a healthy lifestyle and reducing my stress. By the time we were done, after four months of hard work, I had made a 180 degree shift in all areas of my life: financially, professional, emotionally and physically. I can confidently say that I am now on the path that I want to be on and the best of all, I am extremely proud of myself, which is in a surprising way, is a new feeling for me. Thank you Farnoosh.
Mark Hyder, On Coaching As A Tour Guide To Your Future! Sometimes you need a guide, even just a little bit and maybe just for a little while. Someone to wipe the fog away from the window so you can actually see what could be just ahead of you. Someone to be your calm voice of reason and who can validate what you think you see with another set of eyes and a different perspective. A guide who has already traveled the same road and knows what lies just ahead and around the bend in the road that you cannot yet see. Farnoosh has been that for me. I was well on my journey and deep into my trip toward where I wanted to be when I found myself off course and a bit confused as to how to get to my destination. I could see it from where I was at, but what I could no longer see was the path that would take me from where I was to the place I wanted to be. With her help I’m back on track and actually moving again toward my original destination. I would recommend her to anyone needing to build the bridge from where they are at, to where they want to go.

John Kowalski at Babacita, Marketing Consultant – On Moving from Corporate to His Own Business I had never even considered working with a coach but was currently at a standstill with developing my consulting business plan. I had explored my personal and professional skills but with all the “parts and pieces,” I was unsure of how to translate them into a solid business offering. Then I found Farnoosh! In our sessions, through her brilliant insight, thought process and analysis, I was able to move forward and the pieces came together. Her encouragement, inspiration and dedication to my situation and to me were unlike anything I had experienced in the past! Where have you been all my life?!? Now, moving forward with her expertise and guidance, I will absolutely succeed. Being a pretty driven individual, Farnoosh was able to still spark me to a new level that was missing for years. I highly recommend working with her.
Monica Bourgeau, On Gaining Clarity about her Business Goals & Vision
I loved working with Farnoosh and was able to gain so much clarity around the goals and purpose of my blog and writing. She provided straightforward and actionable ideas that were exactly what I needed right now. She was also incredibly responsive when I had quick questions or ideas. She is a wonderful sounding board and gives thoughtful feedback and advice. I am energized and enthused for taking the next steps with my blog and informational products.
Rachael Lay at Choices Life Coaching – On Leaving Her 6-Figure IT Position after My Story
Yesterday I handed in my resignation from my 6 figure, executive IT position and Farnoosh, you were the one who helped me take the leap from constant rumination into action. I have been courting the fantasy of leaving my job to really dive into my businesses full time but always felt like it was just a mad hatter, out there idea that I would be laughed out of the village for. I was convinced that without a full client base, a replacement income and the largest safety mat ever, it just couldn’t happen. And yet, I was struggling daily with a total lack of passion. I wanted to be in ‘my place’ but I couldn’t make that happen, without letting go of the my old reliable. Then I started learning more about your story, and I just came to a feeling that you weren’t selling the regular “Quit your job, follow your passion and life is rosey” plug. Your story had something else that made it so much more real and inspiring and I kept thinking about you as an example of the reality of how my decision could work out. And so I leapt. I am equally terrified and exhilarated. I am simultaneously panicked and high on possibilities. You helped to create this monster, thank you so much for that. Rachael
Veronica Shanklin, Corporate Employee On Taking the Smart Exit Blueprint Class and who by the end of class had been hired by her FIRST client! The SmartExitBlueprint was an excellent way to kick off my plan for an escape. Farnoosh is so positive and encouraging and really makes you feel like you can conquer the world. The course is well-organized and she is always available to answer questions and provide guidance if and when you are stuck. I recommend the course for those who know it’s time to make that move but just need that extra push and a little confidence to get the ball rolling. Thanks Farnoosh!
Lawanda Thompson, Corporate Employee On Taking the Smart Exit Blueprint Class and Bringing her Entrepreneurship Ideas to Life For those who’ve spent years in the corporate world and have come to find it unfulfilling, but are unsure of how to go about making a change, Farnoosh’s Smart Exit Blueprint course is a wonderful place to start. For me, there was no better way to begin exploring the path to entrepreneurship. Farnoosh took a truly holistic approach to developing the coursework and guiding the class through each module. By the end of the course I had the solid, practical tools I needed to identify my next steps. I’ve become inspired again and am well on my way to transitioning away from corporate life.
Tal Gur – On Getting His Coaching Program off the Ground I first got to know Farnoosh through the blogging world. We both attended Chris Guillebeau’s world Domination Summit this year and after reading some of her brilliant posts I asked her to be interviewed to my Below to Zero blog. A few months ago I was looking for a coach to help me communicate better through my words and further build my coaching program. Both Farnoosh and I were born in a non-English speaking country so I knew she would be the right person for me, and she has been so great. Farnoosh pushed me to reach new boundaries. She helped me understand my strengths and unique abilities. Her constant support, sage advices, and unwavering belief in me allowed me to take my writing and coaching skills up a notch. And for that I am ever thankful. Tal Gur, LiveOutTheDream.com.
Sylvia Duncan at The Duncan Approach, On Taking the Smart Exit Blueprint Class Signing up for the Smart Exit Blueprint class was one of the best things I could have done. Going to work every day to a job that is un-fulfilling was draining me. My emotions were out of control and I all I could think about was quitting no matter what, but, that wouldn’t have been smart, not with all the other responsibilities I had. The Smart Exit class has helped me to put things into perspective and look at the situation in a practical manner. I now have a plan that not only takes into account all my responsibilities, but also has helped to generate new ideals for a new path! I no longer see my current work situation as “life draining” but as a stepping stone to where I’m going. Oh yes, and the best part is now that I have a plan, I’m no longer controlled by my emotions. I like the new me!
10 11 Unique Benefits of Working with Me:
You gotta find the absolute right coach for you! And a good coach will insist on working with the right client. It’s a relationship and it works magic and wonders when it’s right. So what is unique about working with me? What will you miss out on not to have this coaching experience?
1. Getting to the Root-cause of Your Problem: One of my strengths is in getting to the root cause of your problem by asking you questions that will bring you clarity.
2. Working Fast – Not Wasting Your Time: I work fast. I don’t waste your time or mine. We power through the one-hour sessions and you come ready to these sessions because you fill out worksheets beforehand so we don’t waste time figure out what the problem is, we start the work right away.
3. Working within a Holistic System, not Just Random Coaching: Part of the problem that you are not making progress and reaching your goals and becoming whom you believe you were meant to be is that you are not putting all the pieces together. You get good advice but it’s not holistic, it’s not part of a big picture or program. I work within a complete system with you, one that has guided me to the right place and I believe can do the same for you.
4. Avoiding the Same Mistakes: I bring you my full experience – you can ask me anything! – from 3 years of blogging, 10 years in the corporate world and 18 months at a start-up, and one year of running a thriving online business, and I’ve made mistakes and turned them around. The goal is to prevent you from those mistakes and lost opportunities.
5. Getting to Immediate Results: You can see results as soon as you spend minutes with me because I give you immediate actionable steps with visible tangible results but you need to be on board and be willing to do the work.
6. Exploring Solutions You Had Not Entertained: It’s possible you know what is not working and what you need to do, but for every problem, there are dozens of approaches and solutions. I give you the other solutions just in case the obvious one isn’t your favorite.
7. Learning from a Corporate Junkie as well as an Entrepreneur: I can give you advice and insights into both worlds, the pros and cons, the best ways to navigate each and how to transition from one to another, and most of all: help you figure out which is right for you.
8. Relating to You on a Meaningful Level: I will relate to you and your challenges on a deep level. I have worked with hundreds of people from all over the world in my profession and traveled extensively, and this has always been one of my strengths, and my greatest rewards of working with individuals.
9. Going Well Beyond Your Average: I cannot stand average or mediocre, and believe we were all meant for greatness, but many of us just let go of our potential. If you want average improvement, this won’t work. I want to infuse potential and power back into you do stellar things with your life and career.
10. Giving You Honesty with Encouragement: Yes, sure, I give you “brutal” honesty but I do it with encouragement. The goal isn’t to point out what you are doing wrong. The point is to help you see everything else that you know and can be doing RIGHT.
Bonus 11. Having Fun: I have never had a client with whom I have not shared at least one laugh. We work, we explore, we discover, we break down barriers for you AND we will still have heaps of fun doing it.
Emily Summerer, Women’s Life Coach – On establishing a blog and website from scratch One day I Googled “find your own path” and the first website was Prolific Living. I was in the process of transitioning from a finance career at a Fortune 500 automotive company to empowering women as a life coach. I had just started getting certified as a coach and building the foundations needed for my business. Since I live overseas and move every couple of years, I knew I would need a strong blog to attract clients. Immediately I felt connected to Farnoosh through her blog. I have always been a big believer in finding the right mentors or seeking out the advice of experts to make my journey easier so I purchased a 3-session coaching package. I was a novice to the world of blogging and Farnoosh was able to share her expertise with me in a way that was easy to understand and enabled me to act upon the advice immediately. She provided me with detailed notes of our discussions and the action items to be completed between sessions. Farnoosh is someone who truly understands and wants to see you succeed as much you do.
Carrie Crotts at Samsara Consulting, On Going Full-time on Her Own and On Taking the Smart Exit Class After becoming familiar with Farnoosh’s work through her podcasts & blog posts, I was impressed by her quality of work. And when she offered the Smart Exit Blueprint course, it was exactly what I needed at that time. I started the class wanting to learn to do a professional exit from my corporate work into my own business. Funny how the universe works, because literally in the middle of the course, my ‘day job’ ended through its own circumstances. The course was the exact net for me to land safely with having the tools and resources from the Exit Blueprint course. Farnoosh bent over backwards to accommodate to her students, even when they were in varied states of exiting corporate life (i.e. just thinking about what to do & helping to brainstorm ideas all the way to me – who recently graduated ‘to the other side.’) It’s a great class and good work to do to align your life to your passions. She will show you how to do it step-by-step.
Sarah Alfares – On Finding the Right Career Path in University Finding the right career path was a big problem for me and even though I tried many possible solutions, I still felt lost. I thought that contacting a coach would help and when I found Farnoosh and heard her story, I was inspired by what she did and I knew that she was the right person to work with. My consultation call with Farnoosh showed me what an understanding and an experienced person she is. I opened up to her easily and felt I could trust her, which made working with her a very easy decision. During the coaching cycle, I was given different exercises that helped me learn more about myself and find solutions to the problems I was facing. Thanks to Farnoosh, I have learned to make decisions based on what I want and what is right for me and not what others want from me. I have also learned how to look at my situation differently and see difficulties as experiences that enable me to grow. There were many times when I felt stuck but Farnoosh’ support and guidance kept me going and pointed me towards the right direction. Farnoosh was very dedicated and she was always there for me; answering every email carefully and yet promptly. I am very pleased with my experience and I know that I have obtained more than I thought I could and I was able to improve many areas of my life.
Chris Harris, IT Consultant – on Moving to Blogging and Online Business I have been working with Farnoosh for the last 7 months, she has been a tremendous asset to work with. Her experience working in corporate IT and then making the jump to running her own business has been an inspiration to me. She is a powerhouse of talent and ideas that she channels into helping others to do the same. I am fortunate to be working with someone of her caliber who is warm, personable and able to see in my blind spots to develop new ideas and directions for making changes in my business life.
Please don’t apply to coach with me if …
If you are here to get some ‘free coaching advice’ or you are price-shopping for the cheapest coach, then I am not your gal. If you are doubtful about the value of a coach, I am also not here to convince you otherwise. If you are not ready to invest in yourself and to do the work, again you’re not in the right place. If you are not ready to start working right away, and you think maybe someday down the road you might need a coach, let’s not waste each other’s time because we would not be a fit.
But if you are ready to invest in yourself and ready to make great stuff happen in your career or your business, if you feel worthy of massive success and you need support, guidance and direction to move your dream forward, you are my ideal client and I am here to fiercely support you. Think big promotion, big salary increase, big profits and big time change in the direction of your dreams and desires.
Blaine, Financial Expert, On Clearing Roadblocks through Proven Strategies and TechniquesI would encourage anyone looking to advance in self development to contact Farnoosh. Whether it be in personal self development or career development Farnoosh provided me with enlightening insights that helped me identify roadblocks that were keeping me from reaching my potential. Farnoosh then provided applicable tools and exercises to assist in overcoming my shortfalls that allowed me to see things for what they really were. Her energy is unmatched and her passion for what she does will come through clearly as you work with her. Farnoosh is definitely a positive spirit who is genuine and sincere. I would have been willing to pay twice the amount I did to work with her as the value received far outweighed the cost.
Emiel vanden Boomen, Blogger at Act of Traveling, On Not Wasting Time Searching for Answers Alone Sometimes you are stuck and need advice for your personal or professional situation. It takes a lot of time to search the internet trying to find answers to your questions. How do I deal with lack of motivation? How can I negotiate more salary with my boss? Honestly, I never before had a talk with someone about personal issues and challenges. The weird thing was that I realized my issues were not one of a kind. Others had traveled the road I was about to hit. Farnoosh turned out to be someone with experiences in many fields, business as well as personal. In one single hour, we touched on multiple subjects, losing not a single minute of time. I realized I was not alone out there. It is great to discuss your challenges with someone who wants to listen. In the end, it is the interaction between people that creates the added value.
Priya (my shy client) Engineer Dreaming of Becoming a Writer – On Ending Self-destructive Cycles Thank you for an eye-opening session. I absolutely LOVE your depiction of the vicious cycle of behavioral/emotional problems. Though I knew I had to get away from feeling victimized by my circumstances, I wasn’t doing anything about it other than feeling disgruntled deep down all the time. But after talking through it with you, it’s crystal clear that any complaints on my part are mere excuses to staying complacent. And also, until I talked to you, I didn’t realize to what extent my approval seeking was holding me down. So thank you for giving me the encouragement to start with small, consistent and meaningful steps to delve deeper into my dreams and aspirations.
Tibor Febland, Aspiring Entrepreneur – On Starting His Own Cosmetics Business I would just like to thank Farnoosh so much for the coaching session which has had such a positive impact in my personal and professional life! I was a bit hesitant to ask for coaching with her at first – I was not sure I would get the value out of it and I was not even sure she could help with my particular problem – I had been toying with the idea of contacting a coach and now I’m so glad I did and I’m so glad it was Farnoosh. Very happy with the way things went, I am sure Farnoosh and the session continue to have a positive impact on my life. Sincerely thanks again and I look forward to our next session. Love and Light from Tibor
Stephen Gaudet – On Finding the Right Path in His Career I was lucky enough to stumble upon Farnoosh and Prolific Living last year. Before I met her, I was in a job that was very secure, paid well, and was in a field that I had been trained and educated in. I wasn’t happy though. My brain kept saying….stop acting like a spoiled brat…do your work and be happy you have it. My heart knew that I needed to make a change …and it won the disagreement with my brain. When I found Prolific Living online, I was so happy to see that there were other people out there going through the exact same thing I was. I knew I needed a change, but didn’t know how to go about it. Farnoosh got me on the right track through some excellent one on one Skype sessions, and a multitude of emails. She challenged me. She informed me. She enlightened me. I’m now beginning a new journey in my career and I owe it all to Farnoosh…..thank you!!!!
Sean Cox, Vision Coach – On Turning His Blog into an Online Business Farnoosh was great for mainly 2 reasons. First, she gave me concrete and practical advice that was very helpful and that I could move on and take action with right away and that was great.Second, I appreciated her generous and friendly spirit. She seemed to really care about my project, which is as important to me as the content and advice she gave me about online business. I would highly recommend Farnoosh to anyone wanting to improve their blog and also anyone that wants to build their online business. Thank you, Farnoosh.
Maria Brophy, Consultant for Artists – on Self-Discipline for Writing an eBook under Tight Deadline I had been wanting to write a book for as long as I can remember. I had everything you need to be an author, except for a few key components: organization, focus and confidence in my own knowledge. I had a bad habit of starting books projects, but never finishing. Then I got an opportunity to co-write with a very successful writer in my niche of art licensing, It was a huge step up for me, but I wasn’t sure that I could do the work and meet my deadline. I did a session with Farnoosh, and she went above and beyond. She helped me eradicate the fears that were holding me back from getting the work done. She helped me organize my writing, broken down by chapter into days and weeks so I’d meet my deadline, and then she followed up because she cared! The book is finished, I’m proud of the work that I did and I now have the confidence to write another.
