I came to Monique feeling very frustrated about having multiple passions – none of which had to do with my then-day job. After three sessions with her, I was invigorated and excited about the focus and direction that Monique helped me to find. Her thorough coaching process was insightful and eye-opening and I refer back to her final recommendations report often as a reminder of my “master plan.” I’m pleased to say that I’ve since left my day job and going full steam ahead with my goals! I have been singing her praises high and low ever since! She is intuitive, professional and extremely personable. A definite blessing for me and my business!

Before I talked with Monique, I was interested in too many arenas, yet not pursuing anything. I was constantly feeling stuck, and frustrated that my dreams and talents were within reach, but I didn’t know how to harness that energy into income generating, inspiring, authentic work. After consulting with Monique Eddleton, I experienced many A-HA moments. It helped me to rediscover and refocus my initial passions and how my passions can lead me to executing my divine plan. I felt like a Claritin commercial at times, not being able to focus on anything, but I can see clearly now with Monique’s guidance.

Monique helped me think outside the box of my daily work grind and challenged me to revisit some activities and interests that I found enjoyable in an effort to spur my entrepreneurial spirit. She has a gift of helping people recognize that their passions can be the foundation for viable business ventures. Her energy was contagious! She was just as excited about my journey as I was and her support has been invaluable.

I worked with Monique during the early stages of starting my business. My main problem was being conflicted about my target audience. I was boxing myself into one specific path and was getting frustrated. Monique helped me to see that is was okay to serve two markets and she guided me into a way that I could serve both markets without getting burned out. I love that she listened to all of my business goals and helped me streamline what was a confusing concept into a clear, doable path.

I found my coaching session with Golden Parachutes to be a refreshing and reaffirming experience. It has given me the motivation to move forward with some ideas that I had, and they solidified. No matter what profession you’re in, a non bias look into your potential future path, could be eye opening for anyone!

Monique, thanks a million! It was definitely a pleasure working with you. Your service proved to be invaluable. It would have taken me weeks if not months to collect and analyze data that you provided during our sessions. I appreciate that you were always prompt in contacting me during our scheduled meetings, professional, resourceful, organized and insightful. These are qualities that I aspire to possess as an up and coming entrepreneur.
