“To be open, honest, challenged, and seen in a really beautiful way.”

“To grow in ways you’ve been hoping for, but haven’t yet.”

“Be prepared to really look at the things that hold you back and be willing to let them go.”

“Be prepared to engage in a whole new self-discovery, where answers aren’t ever going to be given to you, but the right questions will be asked that will help you discover for yourself, what the answers really are.”

Pre-Coaching with Rey:

“I felt scattered.”

“What was I doing with my life?”

“I would see people doing big things and thinking I can never do this.”

“I thought wow, I know some amazing people who just get stuff DONE. I know what I want to do but am not sure how to do it or where to direct my energy or attention right now.”

“I felt like I could go 100 ways, but I don’t know where to go or what I really want in the end.”

“Little challenges and obstacles were daunting tasks.”

“I would create stories that devalued my self worth.”

“I felt like I knew where I wanted to go, and if only I could get there things would be better.”

“I felt overwhelmed often and was very indecisive.”

“I felt stuck and although I knew what I wanted to do I didn’t know how to do it.”

“I felt like I was ALWAYS catching up and just getting by”

“I was afraid and I was making decisions from a place of fear.”

“I was afraid of failing and I didn’t even realize it.”

“I was a people pleaser and had a hard time saying no even when I knew it wasn’t good for me.”

“I would self sabotage in ways that I couldn’t even see.”

“I felt like I was always working hard to figure out that one thing I needed to get to the next level.”

“I was playing small.”

“I felt like I was always on the edge of burning out.”

“I was so caught up doing what I “should” that I couldn’t see what I really wanted.”

“I was SO critical with myself and I didn’t realize how much it got in my way.”

“I felt like an impostor.”

“I knew I could do better, I just didn’t know how.”

“I felt foggy and lost in the muck of it.”

Post-Coaching with Rey:

“I realize now that I had no idea what I was capable of.”

“I feel more comfortable and confident with myself, my process and how to support myself.”

“The life I am living now post coaching is a life that I never dreamed of (My dreams weren’t big enough then).”

“The circumstances won’t make me as much as I will make the most of my circumstances.”

“I am looking more inward, and feeling more confident in myself.”

“I know myself better, this helps me navigate things and the unknown in a more centered way.”

“I can engage in the world more fully.”

“I still don’t know where I am going really, but the unknown is a whole lot less scary for me. I don’t feel ungrounded by it.  I feel more okay taking it day by day, or step-by-step, still having a goal in mind but not focusing so much on the end, but focusing more the journey and the process.“

“I am showing up more fully, authentically- and trusting that through leaning into those things that nourish me, I can bring a whole lot more to the table.”

“I am more centered and steadily taking steps towards my end goals, and engaging in the process/journey wholly (as my full-self). THAT makes all the difference.”

“My life has gone in ways I could have never imagined.”

“I have way bigger dreams and they will be my reality some day.”

“I have a defined vision for myself that I love.”

“When I have a challenge at hand I am so mindful about it.”

“Coaching with Rey has given me life experiences that are invaluable and thatI can draw from the rest of life.”

“When you are all alone in your head you don’t do it.

“Huge benefit – Shaping my perspective.  Learning to take control of your perspective and thoughts  and the flip side allowing your thoughts to control and shape you.”

“I learned how  to develop the skills I need on my own as opposed to looking for someone to tell me.”

“I have given myself permission to really be me.”

Appreciation

Rey’s coaching was remarkable! His genuine nature keeps the conversation real and his confident support was easily felt even from the other side of the world! Rey’s coaching guided me through my doubts and awakened the confidence within myself needed to make my goals a reality.
Delfina Zagarzazu, Sustainable Businesses
I love working with Rey. He’s warm, professional, quick to pick up on subtleties and a great motivator. I would highly recommend engaging Rey for coaching or other leadership initiatives.
John Erik Metcalf, Entrepreneur | Passionate about community and technology
Rey is simply way beyond his years. As someone twice his age, I am amazed at his wisdom and understanding. He is truly living in his calling and he is well equipped for the courageous calling forth his clients receive. We will all be buying Rey’s best selling book one day.
Russ Parker, Head of Creative Leadership at Kit and Ace
My coaching experience with Rey was excellent, and I would highly recommend him to others.

I’d never done coaching before, and honestly was quite unsure what to expect. If anything, I have viewed coaching rather skeptically, but was interested to see how a session could go.

I was surprised to find that it was extremely easy to delve quickly into some main constraints to my own career, and Rey quickly gave me some tools and mechanisms to be more focused and productive with my work. He was easy to talk to, funny, and very encouraging. He tried a few different methods and was able to go with what stuck for the client (me) to provide a very personalized experience.

As someone used to being a chronic “overachiever” or “yes” person, I get sidetracked and am unable to focus entirely on one project, and often find my own performance lacking, even if the client I’m working with is satisfied with the outcome. By far the best value I received as a result of the coaching with Rey were methods to shut out all the side projects for periods of time, and get things done excellently in a sub sequential way. I’ve been extremely productive and proud of what I’ve gotten done since our session.

I think that many people could benefit from Rey’s coaching, and would recommend reaching out to him!

Alyssa Rivera, Marketing and Analyst - Sustainable Development
I scheduled a coaching session with Rey when I realized I needed to make a change but wasn’t quite sure how. Between running my startup and raising my toddler, I felt that however hard I tried to be intentional with my time, I was operating re-actively. I had previously never worked with a coach and was not sure what to expect, but I’d heard Rey speak at a conference and of his outstanding reputation as a coach so I figured it was well worth the investment. I must say, I was blown away at what we were able to accomplish in our first session. Rey is a kind and thoughtful coach, he listens and it is obvious to me he skillfully tailors each session to the individual. I am not one to leave reviews on the internet, but I felt so strongly about our interaction that I felt compelled to write here to highly recommend Rey.

Rey is not afraid to take you to the places that make you squirm, because those are the places where you’re stuck (and are usually too busy or scared to see). That’s exactly what happened at my first coaching session, which triggered sweeping changes to my business within days. While it was ultimately up to me to acknowledge bottlenecks and create change, Rey’s guidance shined light on the problems and accelerated growth.
Carolyn Gale
I’ve received coaching from Rey on both an individual basis and in a group setting, and my experience and growth exceeded all expectations. I would recommend Rey as a coach to anyone seeking to strengthen leadership skills, address entrepreneurial challenges, and to those who are ready to grow from deep introspection. A few of the most rewarding achievements I had from working with Rey were embracing failure and finding opportunity from it, learning to choose my state of mind and controlling my thoughts, creating productive daily habits, leveraging my resources around me and learning to effectively delegate, and practicing difficult conversations. I attribute living a more purposeful, fulfilling, and authentic life to my work with Rey
Allie Eklund, Financial Advisor at Tridea Advisors
I really can’t believe how much was accomplished in so little time! I expected a few tips on how to live and work more effectively, but I got much more than that!. The conversation was completely authentic, Rey was able to quickly see the things that I didn’t even realize were holding me back.

Rey pushes you in a positive way which allows you to think outside your ordinary box, reflect deeply and then take action. Not only has he helped me “jump” into the next phase of my life with excitement, but he has given me the ability to see my life with so much more clarity. I would absolutely recommend coaching with Rey, it’s definitely worth it!

Grace Lee, Fulbright English Teaching Assistant
Rey is an awesome coach. From our first session, he gave me tactile, easy-to-apply guidance that made an immediate impact in both my personal and professional life. He is tough and demands results, which is exactly what I needed to push me through some of the difficult challenges I needed his guidance on. Rey is also young and innovative, bringing a refreshing perspective to the table. Highly recommend Rey!
Katie McConnell, CPA, Director of Recruitment and Development at GALLINA LLP
As someone that had never had leadership/personal coaching before, I was completely unsure of what my experience with Rey and coaching would be. I was expecting a few helpful tidbits of generic leadership knowledge and that would be that. Instead, I was completely blown away with Rey’s coaching style and also his incredible ability to subtly pick up on issues that I myself wasn’t aware of and to bring them to the forefront. Suffice it to say that since my coaching session with Rey, I feel like I am a completely different person. We went through a number of incredibly valuable exercises that I think better helped me understand myself, my motivations, drivers and what I really want in life as a whole. I left our session with a clear perspective, actionable items for self-improvement and a renewed vigor in both my personal and professional life. I truly believe that when I look back at my life in 5 years, my coaching session with Rey will be a major blimp on my life map where I will be able to directly pinpoint my change in direction that really helped further align me towards my desired path. I would highly recommend Rey’s leadership coaching to any and everyone looking for helpful guidance and perspective on any aspects of their lives. I feel as though I am on the path to becoming a stronger leader, mentor, friend and overall person due to my coaching session with Rey. I cannot recommend him enough. Thank you Rey!
