Carol-Ann’s Personal Development Bio
Even as she continues her workplace coaching and consulting in North America, Carol-Ann’s passion these days is ignited by making a difference with clients across the Caribbean, Europe and Australia. Watch for the launch of her radio shows and next publications – a journal on letting go of the negative events of daily life plus e-book on coping with impossible elderly parents.
Coach, facilitator, motivational speaker and Reiki Master, Carol-Ann Hamilton is a Pioneer-Visionary who inspires people to live purposefully.
In 2003, this “spiritual warrior” recognized it was time to break through the so-called protective cocoon of employment. Cold turkey. An enormous leap of faith. Just one of multiple bold decisions put into action across decades – emblematic of the quietly-gutsy brand of courage that has earned Carol-Ann a loyal following amongst clients, colleagues and friends alike.
During a very challenging family year in 2010, she yet managed to publish what she considers her most significant work to-date – Step Out of Your Sandbox! The book is all about how to release old comfort zones and have the Life of Your Dreams. Unlike her best-selling leadership and entrepreneurial volumes, Carol-Ann’s growth as a sandbox expert arrived one step at a time. For the five years this writing took, she lived and overcame every single challenge she encourages readers to surmount. By now, Carol-Ann has released so many stuck places she doesn’t know where the box is anymore. She hasn’t looked back!
In sharing her wealth of stories and examples, she hopes this deeply personal yet widely practical work will form an irresistible blueprint to embolden people to venture into the uncharted territory of their True Selves with open arms.
Indeed, nothing delights Carol-Ann more than enthusing others to unleash their potential, evidenced by her motto, “Encouraging Your Greatness!” In a very deep sense, her bone-deep commitment when her own time comes is that humanity the world over will have reclaimed its inner magnificence.
