Darla LeDoux CPC, ACC spent much of her corporate life doing all the things she was “supposed” to do to be successful.

She wondered, “What will people think of me if I quit my good career and become an entrepreneur and coach? And what if I’m wrong?”After 12+ years of resisting this calling, she made a decision to step into her Truth and follow her heart. She now uses her natural gifts and professional experience in consumer insights, product development, marketing, teaching, and coaching to guide aligned entrepreneurs in transforming their results and day-to-day experience in business.
