A personalized plan for your professional goals

There’s a fine balance between a system that works, and taking extra steps you don’t need.

That’s why we start with Blueprints™, which outline our proven, tested process we’ve honed over years of helping thousands of people navigate what’s next for themselves and for their careers.

Think of them as a coaching plan template. They’re where you’ll start.

From there, you and your coach will work together to tailor the Blueprint (or Blueprints) to your unique needs, goals and circumstances.

🏃 You might move faster.

🧘 Some parts may take more time.

🕵️ You might add some other focuses unique to you.

But these Blueprints are a great place to start as you ask, “How long does this take? What am I getting out of this? How can a coach help me?!”

When the thought of what’s next in your career leaves you, at best, apathetic and, at worst, filled with existential dread, you need more than a new resume. You need a career plan, and probably some soul-searching, confidence-boosting along the way.

We’re not just here to get you a new job.

We’re here to help you uncover the right next step for your life. Get ready for career clarity and confidence.

We’re not one-size-fits-all.

These Coaching Blueprints are our proven process that have helped thousands of members find success, but just like couture, your coach will take this process and personalize it to your unique needs, timeline, and priorities.

Career Coaching with Real Results

“Ama La Vida was just what I needed to help me navigate a major career transition and use my values as a compass. Coach Jana was truly an amazing coach with wisdom packed guidance and questioning that led me to make a great move where I felt 100% confident in my decision. I loved having access to the Ama La Vida membership site with modules and access to other special events/webinars on topics that interested. Would definitely recommend Ama La Vida to others!”

“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.”

“Maddie is an incredibly thoughtful, kind, and dedicated coach. As a recent graduate, I was lost about what I wanted to do in life and how to get somewhere in the working world. I was forcing myself into rigid thinking about what I should do, and I was also feeling uninspired about the options available to me. Maddie helped me see things in a new way by identifying my core values and passions, and mapping out possible career paths that align with those parts of myself. I immediately felt motivated and inspired again upon my first session with her. During my time with her, I also landed my first full-time corporate job. Maddie helped me see how the skills I’m learning at this job reflect the passions and values we discussed, and how I can use these skills in the future. If you’re on the fence about working with a career coach, don’t be. Maddie is the real deal, and I would highly recommend working with her. She listens carefully, takes detailed notes of your sessions, holds you accountable, and does it all with empathy. Thank you Maddie!”

“I can’t say enough good things about the ALV 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.”

3 Steps To Career Clarity


1. Sign up for your membership.

Choose the number of sessions you want each month to get started.


2. Get personal, targeted support.

Your personally-matched coach will help you define success for yourself and create a roadmap to your goals.


3. Say “goodbye” to stuck, lost, overwhelmed and unfulfilled.

No matter what comes your way, your coach will help you stay on track to reach your dreams.

You have questions, we have answers:

How do I get matched with a coach?

Can you guarantee success?

We have coached thousands of people over our 6 years together and we can tell you, this works. The first step of our process is to help you define success for yourself, because that looks different for everyone. Once you have that, we will support and guide you so that you have all the tools you need to be successful.

What makes you qualified to help me?

All of our coaches undergo a rigorous vetting process before joining the team at Ama La Vida. We take into account ICF certifications, advanced degrees, industry experience, and coaching background to ensure that you are signing up with the highest quality coaching team.

How will this be different from therapy, or talking to my friends and family?

Great question. The short answer is that a therapist is uniquely qualified to address disorders and mental health concerns in a way that our coaching staff is not, and would not.

Instead, a coach is there to help you identify what you want to create in your life and career and put a plan in place to achieve it. We can help you see where your thoughts, habits, reactions and assumptions are getting in the way of you reaching your goals. You can learn more about coaching versus therapy in this blog post.

On the other hand, your family and friends can be wonderful resources and support for you. However, they often come to the conversation with their own perspectives of what they want to see for you, which may not line up with your own goals and desires for your life! Our coaches go through a thorough training process so they can help you identify what you want and get there using your unique skills and gifts.

How will I be matched with a coach?

Our team of expert Relationship Strategists will review your intake form or speak with you one-on-one to better understand your goals, the right coaching-style for you, and any other preferences you have.

From there, they will match you with one of our 40+ coaches we have personally reviewed and vetted to ensure you receive the highest quality support.

What if I don’t like my coach?

While uncommon, if for whatever reason you’re not happy with your coach pairing, just let us know and we’ll be happy to match you with another coach.

Sometimes it takes getting into the process to fully understand what you need.
