HEY! I'M SANDY.

An explorer, coach, creator & joyful optimist dedicated to helping you change your mind in order to change your life.

Change.

George Bernard Shaw once said, “Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”

As a first-generation immigrant, third-culture kid who’s lived in four different countries and traveled all over the world, I‘ve experienced change every step of the way.

Here's a secret...

I USED TO THINK THAT COACHING WAS ONLY FOR
EXECUTIVES WITH BIG BANK ACCOUNTS

Who needed coaching? I could just work harder - it was my problem, I should be able to solve it. But by choosing to go at it alone, I slowed down my progress because I couldn’t see my own blind spots.

The magic of coaching is that you have an objective set of eyes looking at your life to help you identify areas for improvement and move you forward with your goals.

Seriously, what would your life be like if you could speed up your results, lower your stress levels, and find the clarity you need to succeed faster than ever before?
MY CAREER AND PERSONAL JOURNEY HAS BEEN ANYTHING BUT CONVENTIONAL. I’VE EXPERIENCED BOTH ENDS OF THE SPECTRUM.
From waitressing 12 hours a day to running the show at a huge international company; from not being able to afford a place of my own to living all around the globe, I’m proof that rules were meant to be broken.

But despite looking like I had all the answers on the surface, I was, in fact, a bit lost. I wanted to figure out how to uncover the answers to the questions I had been asking myself for as long as I could remember.


What exactly makes us genuinely happy, successful and creatively fulfilled?

Why do some of us struggle and suffer, while others seem to find a way to thrive, in spite of life's adversities?

I joined Ignite during a difficult leveling-up period in my life, and I think it was a huge help in steering me into the right direction. Life is a lot, but learning to navigate everyday with my Sage in the driver seat has given me a lot of peace and motivation

MONICA ZOU | TORONTO, CANADA

My goal was to improve my positive self & enhancing my relationship with my husband, in our ‘golden years’. Discovering my Sage powers helped me find myself again after encountering my younger sage self, pure joy and happiness. I see the change in my husband’s response and I am so thankful and grateful for discovering this.
