Let’s Craft Your Story.


Every person offers the world a unique value proposition. A “story” rooted in the foundation of your past, your skills, your unique talents. We help you to uncover, identify, and tell that story concisely and elegantly, so that others can see, hear, and relate to it in an instant.


Actualize It.


Whether it’s ensuring you’re presenting your best self on LinkedIn, face-to-face, on paper, or on TV, we will help you to identify and build on your strengths and position you for your next act, ultimately landing you in a new, bright spot.

Planning your next act? You have a unique and textured personal and professional history. You’ve found success (and struggle) in any number of forms. You’re ready for your next chapter. What now? How do you define, craft, and land your next act?  Bright Spots Coaching is your partner. We help you to identify your future self, craft your story, and actualize it.
