After the loss of my mom (cancer), I struggled to find joy in my daily life. I knew I had the ability to become the person I wanted to be, but I was having a hard time achieving it.  I had a great husband, career, and children. I had supportive friends and a wonderful social circle, but all of that still wasn’t enough. 

I met Cheri in the academic world, and she offered to provide me with her expertise and guidance.  With her coaching I was able to understand how much my past influences the current moment, current day, and future days.  I worked through the assigned exercises and had virtual meetings on a regular basis.  

Cheri helped me realize what is important to me, what inspires me, and what I can do to realize those things and live my best life.  I have renewed motivation, energy, and outlook and with her help, decided to take action toward my goals and dreams.

Cheri is a compassionate and caring coach.  I felt challenged to complete the required assignments and saw value in being led by an expert.  It truly was a partnership and we both did our part which led to my success.  

Cheri has seen first-hand how her coaching has helped me transform my personal life, professional life, and physical life. My friends and family have noticed, too, but most importantly, I feel the positive effects in my daily life, and for that, I am so thankful for Cheri.

One of the biggest breakthroughs Cheri helped me with was recognizing my true potential as an educator. Being a teacher is often very frustrating. Cheri helped me navigate the unknown, she guided me through new learning experiences, and she uplifted me in ways I can’t even begin to explain.

Cheri shares her soul with those she works with and I became part of her flock. I have admired her dedication to conquering new paths and have applied her wisdom to my own life.

“You know, you don’t have to be Polly Perfect…” This sentence will remain in my head and heart forever. And I’m not even sure Cheri knew how enabling that was for me. 

Cheri has helped me grow – not only as a professional – but also as a woman of God.  Cheri has helped me step away from the need to prove myself over and over. 

She has given me skills to know that I am always enough in God’s eyes. In working with Cheri, I have realized that she is both skilled and gifted as a life coach. Her strength and compassion have made a deep impact on my life.

I met Cheri in the most interesting coincidence.  My husband was one of her students at the University and we met on a residency project in Hawaii.  I had just gone along for the ride you see … but wasn’t that an amazing coincidence?  That’s really the hand of God at work.

I had started my own BeachBody coaching business at the time, and I knew nothing about using social media to reach potential customers.  But Cheri taught me how to use Facebook and how to use YouTube to market my coaching business.  What a great gift that was to me.  I would have never ever been able to do this without her help.

What I love about working with Cheri the most is that she’s technically brilliant and spiritually filled.  I needed that combination.  And God knew that.  Cheri taught me how to set goals.  She taught me how to set SMART goals that are specific measurable, achievable, relevant, and time bound.

I felt so confident meeting with her to outline my plan and each week we met to measure my progress and set new action-oriented goals to achieve the main goal.  That’s what coaching is to me.  Having that very valuable resource to help you get started and break through some of those challenges that are serious roadblocks and help fix challenges that get in the way of achieving success.  I highly recommend Cheri Toledo as a coach!!!
