Career coaching for what’s next in your life.

Quit questioning your career path.

The hardest part of navigating your career is knowing what to do next.

Let’s face it. Most of us weren’t taught how to navigate a career beyond the vague question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” or the off-hand advice to get good grades, go to college, and get a “good job.”

It’s no surprise, then, that most of us don’t really know what we want or need in our careers, let alone what do with them when we get them.

That’s why we’re here to help.

We’ve been there and we’ve developed a proven system we’ve honed to help thousands of members figure out what’s next for their careers in a way that is meaningful, fulfilling, and sustainable…and then helped them make that next move.

Our team of ICF-certified and highly-trained career coaches will help you get the quick wins you need while you work toward your long-term goals.

“Ama La Vida helped me break down the nebulous “what do I want” feeling so that I better understood my goals. I was able to find a new job and restore my own self-confidence.”

You’ll get…

💬 One-on-one coaching

You will be personally matched by one of our relationship strategists with the right coach based on your specific goals, personality, and requests.

🗺️ A proven process, personalized

It’s hard to invest in something if you’re not sure what you’re going to get. That’s why we offer Coaching Blueprints™ which outline our proven process that we’ve used with thousands of members to help them reach their career goals.

AND ALSO, we don’t want to waste your time or skip something you discover you need. Once you start with your coach, they will customize your Blueprint into a personal coaching plan made just for you.

🌟 The right coach, no matter what

With your Ama La Vida membership, you can use your coaching sessions with any of the coaches we have on staff. That means that if something comes up your coach isn’t the expert on, they can refer you to someone who is. We call these Celebrity Sessions™, and they’re only at Ama La Vida.

👯 The village you need and deserve

As lonely as it can feel, you’re not the only one going through this experience. That’s why we host 8+ group coaching sessions every month through our Community Membership (included in all Personal Coaching Memberships), where you can meet other members, share experiences, and learn from each other.

PLUS, get exclusive access to our ALV Connect Slack Community and instantly grow your network by 2,500+ people! As questions, challenges, celebrations and shares come up, pop over to the group and get direct support from your peers and Ama La Vida coaches.

🌱 Growth between sessions

Our proven eCoaching programs are designed to give you opportunities to learn, reflect and explore between coaching sessions. They are developed by our coaches using evidence-based methodologies that are rooted in adult learning, positive psychology, and neuroscience.

No matter what your goals, we’ve got eCoaching programs to support you on-demand.

“I can’t say enough good things about the Ama La Vida team. Not only was [my coach] always so kind and welcoming, but she really listened and was able to provide clear guidance despite all of my blabbering. She was 100% focused on me on my goals which I really appreciated since sometimes that’s not the case. She really is a gem of a person and a truly incredible coach! And whenever I needed assistance with my account the ALV was always super responsive, helpful and kind. Honestly, the best customer service I think I’ve ever experienced.”

What is Ama La Vida career coaching?

Our career coaching services give you one-on-one remote career coaching sessions with experienced and fully-vetted career experts.

At Ama La Vida, we personalize our proven coaching process to give you reliable results that are tailored to you and your unique needs. We deliver this through our one-on-one coaching sessions, group coaching, and eCoaching programs.

What makes Ama La Vida different from other career coaching services?

We pride ourselves on balancing long-term vision with the quick wins and short-terms goals that are keeping you up at night. We believe that transactional coaching (i.e., a coach who just gives you what you’re asking for) will lead to transactional results.

Our coaches will challenge you with unexpected insight into your current state and arm you with new strategies and new skills to help you reach both your short- and long-term career objectives.

Is career coaching just for finding a new job or getting job search help?

Nope! It’s true that a career coach can absolutely help you with your resume, cover letter writing, interview skills and all the other job search skills you need to help you navigate the job market. However, our career coaches truly shine by partnering with you to develop a long-term career plan that will take you from feeling stuck to feeling excited and empowered about your future.

Your coach will help you identify areas for personal growth and opportunities for strategic planning that will support you in both your professional life and your personal life.

What if I need more than just career coaching?

Yes! Your happiness and success isn’t just about your career! Our coaches all take a holistic view of career success to help you create a personal vision of what you want in life.

Our career coaching process starts with self-discovery to help you understand your passions, values, gifts and purpose. Because job satisfaction is really about fulfillment, growth, and work-life balance.

We also take this promise even further by offering Celebrity Sessions™ which let you use your coaching sessions with any of our coaches so you can benefit from each of their specialized expertise.

How long should I expect to work with my coach?

How long you work with a coach will entirely depend on your specific needs and goals. To start, check out our Coaching Blueprints™ which will give you guidance on what to expect. Keep in mind that your coach will make a personal plan tailored exactly to you!

How much does career coaching cost?

We have a variety of membership options. You can learn more about them right here, or book a free consultation to get a personal recommendation!

How will I be matched with a career coach?

Our coach-matching process is highly personal and 100% human. To get started you can tell us more about your personal goals and needs in this form or book a free consultation call with one of our Relationship Strategists.

The team will use that information to personally match you with your perfect coach from our team of 60+ certified coaches.
