The search for purpose in life has plagued philosophers, poets, and average people for centuries, but life coach Kelsha Jones is lucky enough to have discovered hers. Now she finds joy in helping others find purpose, overcome their hurdles, and lead happier lives. A fully certified life coach, she earned her certificate from the World Coach Institute after finishing her master's in human relations and business.
Part of Kelsha's practice includes letting clients determine the structure of their sessions by making their own agenda. As she moves through the agenda, she listens carefully and asks thoughtful questions that help her clients identify actionable solutions to their problems. She then sends them home with a simple goal-oriented homework assignment. At a subsequent session, they catch up on the progress made and formulate new action plans to continue meeting goals, whether that includes working toward a promotion at work or a promotion to Best Son Ever.
It took life coach Pam Robinson longer than a decade to amass the life-changing techniques she deploys today at Focus on Your Success. Though the transformations she triggers are often visible, the work she does is internal, with methods such as guided imagery and the emotional-freedom technique (EFT). Whereas guided imagery pairs positive affirmations with gradual relaxation in an effort to combat a negative attitude, EFT uses a blend of acupressure and verbal therapy to dispel negative emotions and the negative behaviors that accompany them (such as smoking or overeating). EFT also helps lessen stress.

She and her team maintain a welcoming office environment, complete with hot beverages, Wi-Fi, and gaming consoles in the waiting area.
