I am unapologetically ambitious. I love the fight because I know how to fight. I am comfortable in the struggle because the struggle is all I have ever known. I was grateful to these behaviors because they got me to where I am. I also knew something wasn’t right. I was mentally and spiritually exhausted. Through working with Amber, she helped me recognize that these behaviors have served their purpose but will not get me where I am supposed to go. It is time to put them down and try something new. I needed help to identify, receive and implement grace into my life. This is the crux of the work that we do. I got to admit, these sessions are sometimes confronting but truly in the best possible way. Amber creates a safe space for me to freak out, cry, grieve but ultimately let these labels and behaviors go. Through working with Amber, I see that they don’t serve me anymore and new tools and practices are needed. Each session with Amber I come away feeling supported with new insights and tools to step into the next phase of my career and life.
I am currently enrolled in Amber’s Advanced Group for Coaches and it has been amazing. I call it a one-stop-shop for coaches. What I mean by that is the group not only focuses on goal line successes but also inner ones too. For example, so far with Amber’s expert coaching, I’ve launched my website, had my highest billings month to date ($56K), faced my fears of experiencing deeper intimacy with my husband, and learned to dream bigger dreams for myself. Amber’s company is called “Fierce Loving” and she brings her fierce loving to every single group call and group intensive she leads. I’ve transformed because of her loving presence and leadership, and she is my biggest cheerleader. I’m so happy I’ve made this investment for myself and you will too if you dare to dream and choose to work with Amber. Your coaching practice and your LIFE will never be the same—it will be glorious.
Working with Amber has been life changing. In a very short time, I was able to drop old stories, gain clarity on how I love to serve and anchor into my own style of leadership. I co-created a thriving hybrid coaching-psychotherapeutic practice meeting my financial goals in less than 6 months. And, I did this without having to work harder or sacrifice more.
In my work with Amber, I experienced what it really means to co-create with Spirit and relax into completing one thing at a time with great love and care. I was able to see where my medicine is needed in the world and how to offer it with much grace and ease.
I am so grateful for Amber’s love, encouragement and her ability to mirror back to me who I really am in those moments when I had forgotten.
I began working with Amber at a time in my life when I thought I had to suffer and deplete myself to make money. Amber set me on a path to financial independence and the ability to know that I can create income in ways that are meaningful, uplifting and fun. I stopped struggling and started setting boundaries in my personal and professional relationships. I stopped living in scarcity and survival mode (a way of being that was VERY familiar for me). Now, I know that safeguarding my emotional, and mental wellbeing and keeping myself resourced is the greatest way to grow my business in a sustainable way.
Support through Amber is a cornerstone of my life, so I wasn’t necessarily expecting the Advanced Group to be far away one of the best offerings I’ve participated in—but it has been. The intensives were super-powered batteries of support and possibility that have blasted me off into my life like a superhero each time—creating new momentum in my world that has continued to astonish me.
The first intensive, I got a clear sign within that my partner and I were supposed to buy a house, despite the fact that I had only rented apartments my entire adult life and we weren’t even married yet due to COVID-related wedding delays. Two months later, an offer was accepted on what I can truly say is my dream house, in one of the “hardest real estate markets ever” Los Angeles in 2020—not that it was for us. For us, it was Graceful, magical, and full of ease beginning to end. Now we live in the home I’ve been dreaming of for years—and the upleveling continues.
The guest coaches have been astonishing. There has been big spiritual upleveling that has taken place. And I’ve attracted fantastic clients with ease throughout. This has been an investment I will always look back on as one of the most impactful.
I have been an actor for years but never really felt like I owned it, and it was making me feel uninspired and wanting to find something else. This program was my last ditch effort to resolve once and for all why my career felt so torturous to me. Turns out the issue had nothing to do with my career but more to do with my own feelings of being “enough”, in all aspects of my life.
Just the simple act of investing in this experience cleared a lot of my blockages, but definitely the many tools Amber introduced allowed me to own, in the most genuine and lasting way, my innate “enoughness”. And it has permeated to every part of my life: in social situations, in dating situations and definitely in my career. The proof is in the pudding: I ended up booking and working more then I ever have while I was in Letting Life Love You. Amber had said that our outside world would change and I didn’t believe it. I thought, That happens to other people, not me. Well, I am proof that it did! This course is transformational and the best thing I could have done for myself.
I’ve finally been able to establish a solid routine in my life, including things like daily meditation to keep focused and centered. In my career as a creative person, I feel more confident than ever in expressing my authentic voice. I can clearly hear the change in the music I write these days. Probably the most profound changes in me have happened on the inside though. I’ve learned how to find balance, to forgive myself, to express gratitude, to stay curious, and to be courageous in the face of my fears. I needed my entire life to change – and that’s kinda what happened.
Near the end of 2014, I had dug myself into a workaholic ditch, and felt like I had no control, no compass, and no concept of who I was anymore. I was barely sleeping, eating horribly, and engaging in a myriad of unhealthy stress reducing habits. I could not fathom how my once beloved career had devolved into such a prison.
Everything came to a head one morning when I looked down at my keyboard and discovered it was covered in my own hair. Yes, my hair was falling out. Neglecting my health had finally caught up to me in a bad way, and I knew I needed help to regain control of my life.
And help did come, in the form of a recommendation from a dear friend. “A Life Coach?” I thought to myself. “Really?” as the meat and potatoes Midwestern side of me bristled with mild contempt. But I was determined to be open to help from any and all sources, so I mustered courage and threw myself into the process. However, I had a hard time convincing my fiancée that embarking on life coaching was worth it. Eventually, she told me I had her blessing on one condition, “if your entire life changes,” she said. A tall order, no question about it. But that is what needed to happen. I needed my entire life to change.
One of the most powerful lessons I learned from my life coaching experience is that everything starts in the world of the internal. Often in our sessions together, I felt like Leonard DiCaprio in the movie Inception. But instead of breaking into my dreams, Amber helped me to hack into my thoughts. For instance, I couldn’t get my schedule under control until I learned to kick my “say yes to everything” habit. And there was no ridding that habit until I realized where that impulse originated from…the thought that what I DO is who I AM. Once I realized I was saying yes to everything to prop up my sense of worth, I began to be in control of my decisions again. Personal breakthroughs like this helped me to see that emotional obstacles in my internal world were blocking the goals in my external world.
Over the course of several months, Amber was able to help me dismantle my circus show of spinning plates. I no longer felt like my whole world was one bump away from crashing down around me. I’ve finally been able to establish a solid routine in my life, including things like daily meditation to keep focused and centered. In my career as a creative person, I feel more confident than ever in expressing my authentic voice. I can clearly hear the change in the music I write these days. Probably the most profound changes in me have happened on the inside though. I’ve learned how to find balance, to forgive myself, to express gratitude, to stay curious, and to be courageous in the face of my fears. I needed my entire life to change – and that’s kinda what happened.
From day one, Amber’s presence in my life has continued to enrich, expand and deepen me in ways that continue to surprise me. It’s led to a thriving personal life as well as a robust and deeply fulfilling coaching business.
Prior to my apprenticeship, I coached under Amber in various ways for 2 years. However, the apprenticeship was like a “superboost” for my life and work. It became a magnet for quite literally everything I have wanted for most of my life.
Specifically, this program was the biggest financial investment I have ever made in myself, and I made my investment back the month after I launched. A lot more goodness happened as a result as well: My husband and I bought our dream house, I increased my client load and created new programs, AND I worked less hours and took a lot more time off, felt more spaciousness in my life, and had extensive time with my daughter.
Apprenticing under Amber also brought me across the threshold of running a multiple six-figure coaching practice before we were half way through.
The internal and external gifts of coaching with Amber continue to flourish. I’m deeply grateful for this profound opportunity and how much expansion it’s brought to every area of my life. It has been unforgettable and truly life-changing.”
I felt drawn to Amber’s blog because I knew I needed a fresh perspective on how I have been approaching my life and body. I have been obsessing about my weight since I was a young girl and throughout many different sizes and points of my life. I have tried fad diets and cleanses since I was a teenager and nothing has ever lasted. I have just had further frustration built each time I failed or gained weight back. This program helped me undo those negative feelings of guilt and failure and REPROGRAM MY MINDSET AND LIFESTYLE SO I CAN LIVE THE LIFE I TRULY WANT—FREE AND HAPPY!
I started working with Amber in a moment where I was looking for a change in my professional life. My usual patterns of self doubt and underearning were no longer serving me but I didn’t know how to move forward. It’s hard when you are an artist with no training in business and you think that you need to figure out everything by yourself. I was feeling alone.
It was in our first conversation, that Amber started to open my mind. She showed me that the only thing in between my usual patterns and what I wanted to achieve was myself. I have to admit that my rational self was a bit skeptical of the coaching thing, but my gut was pushing me to join her Letting Life Love You intensive program. I really surrendered to the idea when she told me: I am not asking you to trust me, you can try and experience for yourself. I accepted the challenge and OH MY! Those four months changed significantly myself and my professional life. Amber’s approach to transformation from the inside out is brilliant and solid. I realized that one of my fears of being coached was to have to follow a formula, but Amber showed me that change can be a collaborative and creative process and I am all about that. I was suddenly excited about creating a new and authentic relationship with work and money.
Amber was loving, kind and genuine every step of the way. I felt respected, heard, understood, safe, appreciated, cherished, empowered. After four months, I was confident in myself and my value as a professional and artist. I raised my fees, attracted more work and learned to trust that if I continue using the tools I learned, I can achieve so much more.
I started working with Amber Krzys in 2015. It began with a few workshops, then a group coaching program, and finally some 1:1 and three years in the CFJ Coaching Success School where she’s on faculty.
My experience with Amber has been incredibly rich and so helpful. Certainly, she’s helped me build a sustainable coaching practice, but beyond that she supported me in finding more joy, more enthusiasm, and more light in my life. Amber was incredibly influential in creating and filling two rounds of my signature group coaching program—Women Who Want More, and in helping me fill a number of workshops both live and online.
Before Amber came into my life, I was dreaming of becoming a coach without putting any real action into place. I’m now a full-time coach and I treat it like a profession. My income in my coaching business this year has already surpassed my income for the entirety of last year (which was my best year ever in business) and it’s only April! There’s no doubt that I will continue to work with Amber because the truth is, when I work with Amber—I make more money as a coach.
The best thing about working with Amber, however, is having her in my corner—in knowing that she is holding for my highest good and sharing so much love with me on our calls and beyond. I feel safe with her, I feel celebrated, and more than anything, I feel truly seen.
When I started CIA 2016 I was looking for an opportunity that would support me in moving forward with my coaching practice. This was to be a second career for me and was a sea change in what I needed to bring forth in myself. You see I spent 35 years in a secure bureaucratic system.
Coaching on the other hand called for me to be independent and self-disciplined in mind and actions. This required me to expand my skills. Working with Amber and being part of this group has supported me in deepening my trust of myself and has assisted me in bringing forth confidence in my abilities to step forward into who I am and what I can bring to my clients. I have faced my challenges with grace and ease but not without discomfort.
Working with Amber has been an unbelievable journey—LIFE CHANGING! I said yes to Lead. Live. Love. because I knew I was ready for change. My current way of living was no longer serving me. Fear seemed to be a predominant emotion in my life, keeping my dreams small.
Through the work I did with Amber, individually, and in groups, my life changed. I learned to embrace the scared and vulnerable child, who had no voice. I learned to be kinder and gentler and to stand up for myself. I learned to accept my humanness, and to be open and vulnerable. I listened to my inner voice, took courageous action even with fear present, and much to my surprise, that journey led to decisions about taking care of myself, running my business differently, and having more quality time. It ultimately opened more doors!
I can’t thank Amber enough for her kindness, compassion, intuitiveness, and insight. She is truly a very special soul. And for that, I am grateful.”
My experience in the Rock your body Challenge has been life changing. Not only have I managed to get out of my comfort zone various times, but being in the program has made me connect with my body like I never have before.
I have been a big girl almost all my life and I have never quite understood that you don’t have to be thin to be happy or to be beautiful, you don’t have to have the perfect face to be successful or adventurous or even have the perfect body to feel confident. Being in the program opened my eyes to the feelings I just mentioned are within and we are able to feel them once we manage to fully connect with our body.
Working with Amber has been one of the greatest gifts in my life. I started working with her when I was at a place of new leadership with my company and didn’t know what I needed to do in order to move to the next level. Since working with Amber I have more than doubled my income, I have been able to reduce/eliminate the things that were sucking my energy and instead focus on where my greatest strengths were. On top of that, I’ve been able to hone in on what is most important and valuable to me in order to find the sweet joy of life and of work. Amber has a unique ability to walk you through some of your deepest questions and your darkest fears to come to a place of acceptance of your greatness that leaves you feeling incredibly empowered and valuable. Working with Amber has given me so much clarity to work from a soul centered place vs a place of proving or ego which has given me an authentic voice that has led to my success. I can’t imagine working with a better, more loving coach. She has been a true God-send and I am so grateful for the process of working with her and becoming the best version of myself to powerfully bring my gifts to this world.
The coaching I’ve done with Amber in our apprenticeship has been some of the most transformative of my life.
What has moved me particularly is that I’ve had a pattern for many years of not seeing my own value––as a coach, in other professions I’ve been in, and as a person. No matter how much healing I’ve done around this (e.g., looking at limiting beliefs around feeling unlovable, unworthy, etc.), I still wasn’t able to see and stand in the strength of who I am. Until now.
I’ve had so many wins personally and professionally—and, living from the wisdom inside of me…really seeing and celebrating who I am inside and as a coach…has been the biggest game changer for me. I learned how to show up and really stand in the gift of the work I do with people, and more importantly, take deep and loving care of myself. I upped my fees and interrupted a long pattern of overthinking the emails, blog posts, etc that I write. Personally I began to see that I am worthy of radically nurturing myself and began adding significant “Debbie time” into my day (which is huge, given the go-go-go mentality I used to have.) Slowing down to receive the beauty and joy of life has been incredible for me!
One key for me has been taking small steps to create and affirm what I want, such as not buying into negative self-talk/doubt and being impeccable with how I spend my time in my practice. Along with that, what’s pivotal in our work together is the way that Amber sees my wisdom and strength, even when I’ve not been able to see it for myself. I’ve never had someone believe in me that consistently and support me as unconditionally as Amber has these last months.
When I made the investment, I knew I was saying yes and making a clear commitment to me and growing my practice. Little did I know the results would give me a foundation to release a life-long pattern that was holding me back from living into what I knew was possible for me. Thank you, Amber.
To be honest, at first I was reluctant to join the Coaching Immersion program because as a coach I had gone through some of the same trainings as Amber. But from our first conversation, I quickly realized Amber’s mastery as a coach and how much I could learn from her. One of her favorite sayings is “You don’t know what you don’t know, until you know.” Amber helped me see my blind spots and some of the limiting assumptions I was making that were holding me back from fully owning the value I provide as a coach. And being coached on actual issues and questions as they come up, is priceless.
While in this program I created five complimentary workshops, my first intensive weekend workshop, my own Meetup group, and my first 5-month group program, and I’m set to double my coaching income this year from last year.
And I’ve learned so much and received so much support from the other women in the group. I’m thrilled that when the six-month program came to an end, we as a group requested (and got) an extension!
The Advanced Group was just what I was looking for last year when I found myself craving support and community. The magic comes from a combination of powerful coaching from Amber and like-minded women struggling with the same obstacles as me. I have been amazed at the profound impact not only on my business and how I approach it but most importantly on my life and how I live it. I have switched my measuring stick of success from the bottom line of my bank account to the bottom line of my heart creating more ease and grace in all that I approach. That’s not to say that I am not producing the numbers I wanted! I am right on track to hit my big audacious annual goal which is a 30% increase from the year prior. Between the quarterly intensives, regular group coaching, and the partnership think time with my fellow participants, my growth has been phenomenal.
This wonderful program truly shifted my way of thinking and relating to the world. I am a natural sceptic and was worried a group wasn’t for me, but I am so glad I gave myself this wonderful opportunity. I opened up to vulnerability, allowed myself to slow down and be more present in all areas of my life and learned to act from a place of feeling instead of overthinking. I originally wanted to focus on my own business, but quickly realized that it would be so much more beneficial to focus on my personal growth.
Since participating in the The Rock Your Body Challenge, my relationship with my body has radically changed. I had always thought that if I loved my body and felt content with it that I would become “lazy” and would no longer care what I ate or did. Amber’s course helped me realize that the opposite is true. Now that I’m starting to love my body, I care what I eat. I’m motivated to move and stretch and treat my body well. Not because I believe my body needs to be thinner or fitter, but because I want what’s best for my body. I’m so grateful for this paradigm shift and how this new perspective has brought so much joy and peace into my life.
In the past, I was never interested in joining a coaching group with other women. I didn’t think I would get as much value as working one on one with a coach.
I decided to join Amber’s Coaching Immersion program and give it a try. Well, I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised. The phone calls were so rich and the live meetings beyond powerful. Not to mention, Amber’s feedback on the e-mails was like gold!
Yes, I made money every month…but that wouldn’t have been possible, without changing the way I started to show up in the world. Being in the energy of strong, powerful women inspired me to own that power within me, to stand up in myself with courage, dedication and Queenliness.
Amber is a power house woman. She is sweet and kind—and as a coach, she doesn’t hold back. I love having a mentor that stands for my greatness and truth. She knows when I’m playing small and also when I’m stretching beyond my liming beliefs. I needed that! Someone that can see where I sabotage my success. Amber and the group was all of that for me.
