Hi, I'm Andrea Johnson

 

I’m a coach, trainer and speaker, specializing in values-based personal, spiritual and professional growth.

Every day, I come into contact with women who feel stuck, limited, or like they don’t have a voice. 

Unfortunately, I have heard it all:

  • It’s too late to change directions, now. 
  • I’m too young / too old. 
  • No one will support me. 
  • I have no idea what I want to do.
  • I can’t do THAT!

To all of this, I say - oh, yes you CAN, and we’ll figure it out together!

The coaching relationship provides me a front row seat to one of the most amazing shows on earth - personal growth.  I love watching you figure out exactly where you can or need to go, how you can make a difference, change the direction of your life, and blossom into the unique and beautiful woman God created you to be. 

The personal connections I develop, uncovering dreams, goals, fears and how to conquer them… and learning from you, as you discover your unique journey, are the things that fuel my passion to walk alongside you as you grow.

Here's a little more about me... why I do what I do.

I've come to understand that the qualities that make us who we are, are what we must celebrate. We each have a special purpose, unique perspective, and unlimited potential. Better yet, we can both discover and develop them.   

I help other women discover and achieve their potential through coaching, writing, speaking and training, from the perspective of Intentional Optimism. This is my philosophy of life, and includes the following six pillars:

          Optimistic - Hopeful, Positive Proactive

          Present - Seeking Wonder, Generous, Kind

          Courageous – Leading Others, Adventurous, Resilient

          Energetic - Industrious, Excitement, Life-focused

          Wise - In Respect, Words and having Understanding

          Intentional - Purposeful, Planning, Growth Mindset

My mission is to build a global community of women helping women. A place where we foster leadership from every stage or position in life. A place where we celebrate wonder; move forward with hope and openness; share wisdom and encouragement; offer each other a helping hand; ask freely, and share lavishly; and celebrate our differences as avenues of growth and expansion.

Let’s  change our understanding of what it means to work, provide for our families, have financial stability, and be a leader in the community. Life is an adventure - let's live it to the fullest!

What others are saying...

"Andrea is a compassionate and thoughtful critical thinker. I love brainstorming with her and often need a partner in brainstorming to move to the next level of something I'm working on. She listens carefully, takes mental notes, then asks great questions to get me thinking about next steps. ‘Why do you believe that? Are you reacting to the words or the person? Why not now?’ She encourages me to believe in myself, think bigger, and challenge the beliefs that I may be mired in but may not be accurate."

"Andrea has this innate ability to redirect any negative self-talk towards affirmation and motivation and truly mean it. When you are stuck or lost, she’s there to help you get around that roadblock. She is absolutely the person that will help you find the map within yourself to get moving towards your goals. Andrea has helped me see my future and find my voice."

Kim ~
Manager

"Andrea is the most positive person I have ever met! She's like the sun, warming your heart with positive energy. She's open to communication and trying new things, has the ability to see the big picture, and encourage you on your path to achieve your goals. I am on a new career path now, thanks to her mentorship. I wish I’d had her as supervisor early in my career! The sky has no limits, clouds are just stepping stones and storms will pass. Her “You can do this” attitude is contagious!!"

There are events in life that define our journey. Once they happen, we begin describing everything else as “before X” or “after X”. For me,it was the day my mother died. Suddenly, I became aware of my own limited timeline. The drive to find my voice, purpose and place became urgent. I dove in, head first, and discovered the desire to help myself fueled a greater desire - to help others. Soon, I stopped defining myself in terms  of roles (wife, mother, manager),  but in terms of qualities: curious, determined, happy, adventurous. I've come to understand, that the qualities that make us who we are, are what we must celebrate. We each have a special purpose, unique perspective, and unlimited potential. Better yet, we can both discover and develop them.   

I do this through speaking, training, coaching and writing -  with a focus on helping women grow into the leaders they truly are. Intentional Optimism is my philosophy of life, and includes these five pillars:

          Optimistic - Hopeful, Positive Proactive

          Present - Seeking Wonder, Generous, Kind

          Courageous – Leading Others, Adventurous, Resilient

          Energetic - Industrious, Excitement, Life-focused

          Wise - In Respect, Words and having Understanding

          Intentional - Purposeful, Planning, Growth Mindset
