You’re committed to being and doing your absolute best.
You’re driven… Self-motivated.
And you’re ready for the next chapter even if you don’t know what that is… Yet.
You’re in the right place.
You’re experienced and sophisticated in your field… And while there are a number of things you’d like to work on…
Your game is so much bigger than the others around you… That you’re holding yourself back.
There’s a little part of you that’s scared of your dreams… You don’t see how much you’re keeping yourself from what’s possible.
That bright line between your personal and professional life makes it difficult to see how the two are interconnected.
You are a visionary and a leader.
I’ll help you leave your legacy.
I’m passionate about real conversations with laser focus. My life’s commitment is to help entrepreneurs and executives take action to create their life with purpose. Whether that is in your career, business, personal or professional brand, or self-expression, my intention is to help you find your true voice and use it.
I’m an entrepreneur. In 2009 I started my first business, Step Brightly. Step Brightly is a brand strategy studio that helps CEOs create and execute their brand with purpose. Together with my clients, I create brands with intention, impact and long-term success. I started my coaching practice, Be Bright Lisa, in January 2016.
I’m a life and leadership coach. As a professionally certified ontological coach, my intention is to create the space for you to explore all kinds of possibilities, set intentions, and then get into action. I have over 600+ hours of one-on-one client experience and I’m trained to listen at an extraordinarily deep level, add that to my design thinking and together we will bring heart, soul, and action to every conversation.
I’m a wife and mother. I have my own life experience to share. I’ve traveled the world, made my share of mistakes and learned how to be vulnerable in the face of my biggest fears. I’m married to an architect who is ridiculously handsome and have four kids, two of which are my step kids, whom I adore with all my heart.
