Hello, I’m Amy. Welcome to Amy Minkoff Coaching.I’m so glad you’re here.
I’m a Certified Professional Coach, dedicated to helping you design and build a life that aligns with your personal definition of success.
What’s a Happy Success Catalyst?
Happy Success is the kind of success we can achieve that goes beyond the typical idea of what it means to be successful (such as having power, money, or things); it’s the ultimate opportunity to unlock your true potential, achieve outrageous results in the area of work or life that matters to you, and live a life you LOVE, with success on your terms!
Catalysts are agents that speed up a significant change or action.
As your Happy Success Catalyst, I can help you accelerate your path to unstoppable personal and professional results; with my guidance and support, you’ll explore, discover and define your own Happy Success so that you can start achieving what you want, loving your work in the world, and living the life of your dreams.
I Speak From Experience
After 25 years of leading cross-functional teams at a global healthcare company, I’m now a sought-after coach, speaker, and team-builder.
A graduate of Columbia Business School and the University of Virginia, I’m certified to coach by the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) and the Life Mastery Institute. As a Master Practitioner of the Energy Leadership Index, I leverage this unique assessment tool to help my clients improve their results. While working with me, scores of can-do individuals, professionals, and business owners, have accelerated their results, and created richer, more fulfilling lives, both personally and professionally.
Although coaching is fun because it’s my calling, when not coaching I love reading historical novels, decorating, and spending time with family and friends at the beach on Cape Cod. I live in Montclair, New Jersey, and I’m Mom to my three amazing young adult children, who have been among my greatest teachers.
Read on below for my personal story.
My Own Personal Transformation
Things shifted for me when I started to live my own version of a successful and happy life; it all began when I reached a test of my emotional, mental—and even spiritual—endurance and strength. Over ten years ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer on the same day I had a meeting with my divorce lawyer. If that wasn’t enough of a blow, I was stood up by my date that night. Experiencing the hardship of divorce and breast cancer at the same time became my victim to victory transformation story. From this place of disappointment, fear, and uncertainty, I discovered what I’m truly capable of. (It’s even more than I had imagined!) I realized that I no longer found my work fulfilling, and I wanted to shift away from working on products with 5- to 10-year pipelines to making an impact on people’s lives in a more immediate, direct, and profound way.
In a defining moment, I decided to show up and shine my own light on my future, so I could see my way there, despite the hardship and challenges I was facing. One way I did that was to gather a team of professionals to support me; I enlisted the help of a trusted team, including a coach, a yogi, a psychologist, and a lawyer. In my observation, going it alone, or “lone ranger syndrome”, doesn’t work. I allowed myself to feel the love of the many people in my family, my community, and my workplace who supported me in so many ways, and I wanted to pay it forward.
That’s when I decided to become a coach—and be unabashedly me in the process.
Along the way, I found my life’s purpose: to help others reach more success and truly love their life, doing what they love. Eventually, I found the courage to make this new-found purpose my life's work, and now I model what I teach.
When I think of the work I do, I’m filled with joy and gratitude. I absolutely love working with people like you to transform their lives and close the gap between the life they are currently living, and the life they are truly meant to live—the life they LOVE— and be unabashedly themselves in the process.
It’s never too late to start living the life you’ve always envisioned.
Let’s work together to align your life and work toward your dream results.
