Although the details change from engagement to engagement, the objective is always the same: Help organizations and individuals get to where they can be.

As a StoryBrand Certified Guide, Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, and experienced Marketing and Communications professional, I use the
power of story and proven methods backed by the Gallup organization to develop and implement messaging and leadership development strategies
that help individuals and teams do what they do, better. Whether it is an onsite workshop, a motivational keynote, or ongoing coaching - I can help you get that extra degree you need to help you solve the problems that are holding you back from winning in the marketplace.
I’m a business and life coach for high-achieving salespeople.
If you’re missing your targets, feeling stuck, and feel like you’ve lost your edge, let’s talk.
I’ll help you get your head back in the game so that you can hit your numbers and create success in business, and life.
The question I am most often asked is, "Why do I do what I do?" The most honest response I can give is that I wish there had been a me for me when I was starting out as an entrepreneur back in 2007. I spent a lot of money on all the wrong things thinking it would magically give me the answers – or at least get me a bit closer to success. Frankly, it was frequently the opposite. And even though I knew my CliftonStrengths, I wasn’t making the most of them or using them to their advantage.
In 2015 I had a revelation. I was 42, still no closer to knowing what I wanted to be when I grew up. Couple that with a cancer scare along and a one year old little boy and whoa! It was my wake-up call, my big A-HA! I knew I had to make a change. With a good bit of reflection and honesty (with myself most of all), I realized the one thing that had stayed constant was my love for Strengths. I picked up the phone, called Gallup and 8 weeks later was in Mexico City certifying (in Spanish!) as Peru’s first and only Gallup Certified Strengths Coach.
I dream of creating a world where everyone can live to their full potential, talents aren’t wasted and happiness is contagious. As a mompreneur and expat living in Peru, I understand the challenges and rewards that both entail. When I’m not helping others boost their confidence, craft their message and create extraordinary lives, I am often found at the sewing machine, at the movies, enjoying a glass of wine with friends or horsing around with my terribly precocious little boy, affectionately known as O.

Audra M. Hajj is a passionate and unique business owner that has earned a phenomenal reputation for her innovative concepts and savvy business approach. In 2014 she was nominated for the prestigious Top Woman in Business Award given by the Orange County Business Journal. Why is this unique? It is unique because she worked diligently to make a solid career out of being the tough guy.
Change is often a difficult thing to deal with for many people, but for the last 12 years Audra has created a proven formula for change within her agency. She gives her clients the ability to become the good guy, while she takes on the more difficult role of change in a established business. What does this mean? It means that when employees complain about changes the business owner can be a sympathetic ear rather than the bad guy causing the change. If employees see that a paid professional is controlling the changes, they will be much more receptive to the changes that are taking place.
Over the last decade, Audra has built a highly reputable agency that has over 300 employees. Her proven methodologies are the key to her success. She delivers niche expertise in areas that are needed for companies to succeed both on and offline. She has served over 3000 clients since 2006 , some with business already existing while others come to her in the beginning to avoid common mistakes other new business owners make, in the early stages.
People who meet Audra instantly feel her drive, passion, and energy. It is evident that she truly wants to help business owners succeed, both established business and startups alike. When asking her if she enjoys what she does, she states "I almost feel guilty getting paid, I love my job more today than yesterday and yesterday at work was the best day of my life!" Audra is currently the CEO of Phoenix Business Cycle, and a speaker and author. Her latest book is The Internet Ignition, a book about how to build a profitable online engine. She is in the process of writing her second book titled: The CEO Hostage.
Audra recently stated, "The most precious thing in a business owner’s life is their time. They can do what no other person can in their business, but many times I meet with business owners doing 3-9 employee jobs. Things that are necessary but not good for them to be doing. I want to free the business owners who are trapped working in their business and have them start working on their business. This is where they can grow their business and start to dominate their industry. With the proper support staff that is customizing, systematizing, and actualizing their business needs, they regain time. "
Her strengths are: Strategic / Achiever / Relator / Self-Assurance / Positivity
