    Close-Up Talk Radio spotlights personal empowerment life coach Beth Koehler

    in Motivation

    Saco, ME – Awareness of the Law of Attraction has reached a fever pitch since the 2006 release of Rhonda Byrne’s best-selling self-help guide The Secret. But what is the Law of Attraction? And how can we use it to improve our lives?


    According to personal empowerment life coach Beth Koehler, the simplest explanation of the Law of Attraction is that we attract the energy we project, so what you focus on, you get more of. If we’re joyful we will attract joyful people and circumstances.


    “The law of attraction is always turned on, like the law of gravity. Why not learn to use it to your benefit?” says Koehler.


    Koehler incorporates the principles behind the Law of Attraction philosophy in her personal coaching sessions, where she works primarily with women 40-70, empowering them to align with their heart’s desire.


    “As a coach I have the ability to step back from the center of their lives,” says Koehler. “I help them realize the ways in which they may have manifested their own struggle. If they have the power to manifest their struggle, they can manifest joy as well.”


    Koehler says the hardest thing for a coach to hear is “Yes, but…” because it means they’re blocking themselves in some way energetically. They know there’s something that needs to shift. All it requires is an openness and willingness to allow change. If you allow help and support from avenues you’ve never considered, you’ve just opened the floodgates of change. That’s the Law of Attraction at work.


    Says Koehler: “I love to witness my client’s growth and see them become empowered and confident and strong enough to start making different choices in their life, better choices in their life."

    Close-Up Talk Radio spotlights Business and Personal Coach Ed Karsai

    in Business

    Vancouver, BC – Fundamental to the coaching relationship is creating a non-judgmental, safe space that allows our skills and talents to come forth. When our inner resources become accessible to us, new perspectives become available and new options present themselves allowing for better decisions and choices.


    Ed Karsai is a Business and Personal Coach that specializes in helping his clients better themselves to better their business. He coaches business owners, managers, leaders, executives, entrepreneurs and employees.


    “What I want to do is really connect with that individual and understand what they want,” says Karsai about when a potential client initially makes contact. “The more ready and willing and open the individual, the further we can go.”


    Every individual has their own struggles and challenges, but many people carry an inner resilience, creativity and capacity to move forward through life’s challenges. There may be problems around us, but we each have the ability to work through them.


    “As a coach, I am here as a facilitator to help you discover for yourself your next step and where you want to go,” says Karsai. Fundamentally, there is a belief in the client and that they have the ability to deal with their situation. “Starting with that assumption changes the tone of the conversation.”


    Karsai says he’s looking for people who want to make a change and are motivated enough to take action. Together, he and his clients work to identify what’s holding them back while developing the necessary steps to achieve their goals.


    "I’m looking for people who are fully committed to engage and do what needs to be done to move forward," says Karsai. “I love when people have a shift in perception and things start working for them. They’re able to move forward and begin to realize their goals and dreams.”

    AL DEGREGORIS 


    As he continues his emergence as a dynamic new independent artist in the contemporary jazz world, keyboardist and composer Al DeGregoris still remembers the encouraging words he parents would offer frequently as he was growing up in Long Island: “Be patient. Work hard. Everything will come, All In Good Time.” That last phrase is the perfect title of DeGregoris’ new album, the latest step in the fulfillment of his musical dreams, which finds him vibing with some of contemporary jazz’s top hit making artists.
