My Story

Charlotte Smith, Professional Career and Life Coach, Bay Area, California

For many years I was successfully climbing the corporate ladder at a law firm in the UK. Working long days, always moving up; never a dull moment, chasing the next success; all while comparing myself to others, always putting pressure on myself to succeed; achieve the next goal, don't miss out. And while I was a success junkie... I was teetering on the brink of burnout. I was overloaded. I wasn't making time for my health, my friends, my family. I wasn't doing the things which were important to me.

After 7 year's at the law firm, deep down I knew something was not quite right with my life. I wasn't happy. I was not fully aligned with the work I was doing. Something needed to change. 

This huge journey began 5 years ago.

Now I am living my best life as The Life Design Coach. In this life I am able to combine my talents in empathy, listening, reflecting, creating vision, organizing and planning, creating structure. 

I am able to help people declutter their minds, experience less stress and overwhelm in their busy lives, then work towards designing lives they love! 

I craved for more meaning  and balance, and when my husband was offered a job in Silicon Valley, California, I decided to take the opportunity to follow my heart and start a business of my own.

This was the begining of my experiment in Life Design.

From the moment I chose to start designing my life the way I wanted it to be, EVERYTHING changed.

I could plan my schedule and make time for the things which were important to me. Within 3 months, I was making the same money as a lawyer. I was more productive. I was happy. 

I started work on deep diving to understand my core values; figuring out my personal mission statement, identifiying my purpose, and creating strategy around them.

I trained as a professional coach at IPEC (Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching) to build my coaching skills and ensure I was the best coach I could be. 

"In my world, every single Monday feels like a Friday afternoon." 

My vision is to lift people up to their potential and highest-self. To enable them to live their most inspired life.
