My name is Mildred and am privileged to have Linda Shafer as my mentor. I met her through the Year Up program where students are partnered with mentors, as it is the school curriculum.
Linda has made such an impact on me, both career wise and personal development. I have known Linda as someone with such a big heart, she takes time to listen and give just the right advice where sought. Now a student at Umass Boston, I am studying to accomplish my Bachelor’s degree in Management, and doing my internship at State Street Corporation. This would not be possible if I hadn’t listened and acted upon advise from Linda. I therefore strongly and highly recommend Linda because she’s the reason I have achieved so much today.
Linda is an insightful, intuitive, compassionate life coach and mentor. Her depth of professional experience coupled with her own life experience makes her a powerful coach if you truly want to make changes in your life. She walks her talk and lives her own work.
I worked with Linda for six months. During that time I learn so many things about myself and where I wanted to take my career path. Linda opened her tool box and shared her tools so that I could have my on box to open when I am struggling. She helped me discover how to nurture self love and release fear, for the opposite of fear is love. I think the most valuable learning from her was that all of these discoveries were already present I just needed a sage to guide me. She was my sage. I am now pursuing a career in patient advocacy. I have been accepted at Boston College School of Social Work. I believe our journey of self knowing is on going. Spirit brings people into our lives to help us along the way. I am very grateful that Linda was “put in my way” (a quote from the movie Four Feathers).
Linda Shafer is one of the most phenomenal Life Coaches I have ever met. Her acute listening to her clients and their desires has her zoom into the most perfect questions to ask them. The light goes “ON” and the client claims their power. Incredible, time and time again. I would absolutely reccomend her to any woman I know! Linda is AMAZING!
Is there anything as powerful as someone carefully listening to you? Someone bearing witness to the real you and without judgment. For me, I don’t think so. This is the beginning and the essence of my relationship with Linda
Linda has an innate ability to draw from you what you really need and probably possess . Maybe it’s in asking the question differently that brings forth new answers from you or seeing the circumstances in your life without the fear and judgments that provides new clarity. Through her encouragement and skills as life coach, I was able to step into my power and self worth in a way that has set my life into a belief that anything is possible. She has helped me believe that by being my genuine self and speaking my truth free from fear and judgment, I can have the life I desire and deserve. In the course of our work I developed the mission statement for my business and created my life’s purpose. It’s amazing to wake up every day and have the trust, passion and desire to live both.
Her style is a unique combination of care, compassion, humor, self accountability and action. She is an amazing woman and a brilliant resource for anyone looking to live a more fulfilling loving life. I’m so grateful for her presence in my life.
