"When I attended the “Take Charge: Keys to a Successful Legal Career” my office hosted, I went in with an open mind but no expectations about how useful the workshop would be for me. I was surprised by the thought provoking content which, coupled with Astrid’s creative energy, led me to think in new ways about managing my daily tasks, asking for work experiences I had only been hoping for, and thinking about how I use my time. The creative and positive approach has been helpful to me in the months since. I strongly recommend the workshop as an enjoyable and productive way to rethink how you are using your time and energy at work and, if you are ready, to ask yourself hard questions, such as what your goals truly are."

"Astrid's approach to personal development and self-discovery was stellar. She was able to consolidate my hunches on what had made me successful and happy in the past, and to refine them in a positive, value-oriented way. The workshop was succinct and compelling, addressing both the practical and psychological concerns of professional musicians. Astrid is an inspiring and engaging speaker, and also a compassionate individual. I highly recommend her workshops to all those who have all those questions and doubts that always seem to be milling about upstairs!"

"Aside from her practical and hands-on approach to building a brand, Astrid explodes with energy at every turn, inspiring you to sit up and take notice of every word she says. I have to say, I work with passionate people in the arts on a daily basis, and I have never come across anyone so genuinely excited to help people seek their highest potential. Yes, my experience with Astrid has been tied to the music business side of the world, but her energy, skills, and practices can and should be applied to anyone seeking to be employed doing the thing they love to do."
