Like most successful people, Mandy has paid her dues. She got into the newspaper business while still in college because she wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps as a journalist.
Things didn’t go quite as planned, and Mandy ended up on the road selling newspaper advertising. She hated selling. Hated making the calls. Hated the rejection. But she never gave up.
Learning to overcome her fear of sales, Mandy’s career in the newspaper business took off, and she spent 25 years as a successful sales and marketing executive at leading newspapers around the country.
She learned what it’s like to work in challenging environments and tough economies, and she learned not to give in to adversity or to make excuses. Along the way, she realized that her true gift was developing people. Working at over ten different newspapers, she became known for her ability to “fix” departments and people that others had given up on.
Mandy has an uncanny ability to connect with people, to see their strengths, and to help them play bigger. That’s what led her into coaching fulltime.
After reading an article in the Boston Globe about coaching, Mandy decided to follow her passion and earn her coaching certification. She left the newspaper business and has never looked back. Over the past two decades she has earned a reputation as an inspirational performance coach, motivator and mentor to countless entrepreneurs, solo practitioners and executives, helping them achieve greater business success and personal fulfillment.
Mandy offers one-on-one coaching, workshops, and mastermind groups and is a sought-after speaker on a variety of topics. She is a graduate of Coach U and a certified practitioner of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator. She lives with her husband and two sons in Yarmouth, Maine.
