Freelance Horn Player and Manhattan School of Music Graduate

[Career Planning for Music Entrepreneurs] was a fantastic workshop.  In many ways, I wish that the topics covered in your seminar were part of the core curriculum for conservatory training. For musicians, self-esteem is closely related to artistic success which is in turn deeply intertwined with successful artistic endeavors.  Goal-setting strategies, project planning, asking the key questions which help to unlock hidden information--- these are the skills necessary for building a platform of success.

I loved the fact that you made people get out of their comfort zone and share things with the group that they would otherwise have not done. That is something that I admire a lot, and you have a great gift for being able to do that! Bravo!

Astrid is an invaluable resource for ALL lawyers in transition.  I felt lost and defeated after years of working at a law firm,and I wanted to make a change but didn\'t know how.  Astrid immediately inspired confidence and helped me make positive changes in my career and personal life.  The coaching process was empowering as I re-discovered my strengths and interests in addition to  working on improving my weaknesses.  With coaching, I was able to identify alternative career paths that I would find rewarding and that I would be passionate about based upon my unique set of strengths and values.  Astrid also coached me through my interviews and brought out the best in me as I presented myself to new employers.  I am excited about the opportunities in my new career, and coaching was instrumental in allowing me to be a happier and more productive person.

Entrepreneurial Projects: Expanding the Reach of Classical Music in Today’s World
