Anita did a fantastic job of helping me to identify and clarify career and personal values, goals and objectives. I went from feeling trapped and unhappy with my job, to feeling energized and in control. She provided me with guidance, tools and resources to help me create “work/life balance” and to determine “what’s next?”. Anita’s broad range of experience, skills and knowledge and her warm personality made my coaching sessions a success and a pleasurable experience!

My experience with Anita has been extremely positive. I was sceptical at first that a business coach could help me run my business, however in the short time that I have had with her guidance has given me focus to what was most important in order to improve both my business and personal life. I have seen a great amount of positive change and have been able to quickly act on opportunities that have both helped in reaching my short term goals, as well as moved me along my path to reach my long term goals. In less than 6 months I have hired a great new full time assistant, learned to delegate many draining tasks, moved TMCA to a new location, and create a new marketing plan that showcases all the integrated services I provide. Also, by planning ahead this tax season ran more smoothly then any before so I actually had more time for my family which is very important to me.

My timing of finding Anita couldn’t have come at a better time. When I first heard of Anita I was anguishing over the decision of making a career change from public accounting to industry, a decision that would have significantly impacted my family and my future. At the time, I was no longer focused on my career as I once was. Quite simply I was going through a mid life crisis and was in emotional turmoil. Through her coaching sessions, I have learned to control my emotions when faced difficult decisions and people. She also assisted me in removing the distractions that were causing me to lose focus in my career and personal life. I can now approach decisions and problems with a clear and focused mind. My practice has never been more profitable than it is now. And I have never been at more peace with myself despite my busy work schedule. Because of the positive attitude Anita has help instil in me, I now look at every crisis I encounter as an opportunity rather than the impossible. My family thanks you as well Anita.

I don’t normally subscribe to services of a professional coach. But when I met Anita at a lunch with fellow CAs, I felt this was an individual I’d like as an advisor. Several months later, I asked Anita to help analyze an acquisition to grow my business. I wasn’t sure the acquisition was congruent with my objectives. Over the next 12 months, she helped define my personal and business objectives, define opportunities and challenges and develop strategies to tackle barriers in my way. Ultimately I came away with a successful plan of action. More importantly, Anita was indispensable through various tools, methodologies, and dialogue to help me become much more effective in my business daily. It’s so easy to for me to refer Anita. She helps you understand yourself clearly and gives you strategies to address what’s really important. You only need to act.

Anita Pizycki is an extraordinarily gifted coach that has assisted in our business and personal transformations. Six months ago our professional accounting firm was struggling with staff transition and workloads. We were losing our ability to balance our business and personal lives. Effective goal setting, communication, follow up, warmth and a sense of humor assisted us to create a more successful and rewarding environment for partners, staff and clients. Our sense of balance is renewed and improved. Thank you, Anita!

Anita Pizycki is an extremely effective voice of encouragement and guidance. If you are like me…filled with wondrous intentions to organize those stacks of files and spend more time at home, but never seem able to actualize these goals, Anita in an inspiration. I think of her as my own little Jiminy Cricket…a voice to get me going and realizing positive results, rather than staying stuck in the dreaming stage.

It is wonderful to have Anita as my coach and confidant. She has helped me organize my paperwork, my house, my life! Instead of wasting time “overthinking” decisions, I now have tools to deal with them more effectively. I worry less and have more peace of mind. Anita is a great coach and gives “100% plus” of great advice, great references and great listening. I made the initial call to her because she is a C.A., like myself, but I have stayed because she is so much more!

Working with Anita has helped me get my financial and career priorities straight. She helps me establish the tasks required to achieve the larger goals and then serves as a resource when I need tools and contacts to complete these tasks. With her coaching, I was able to reconnect with a childhood dream to export security systems to the Ukraine and start researching the viability of the endeavor.

I have used the services provided by Anita as my coach for some time. I have found her advice invaluable and her listening skills 2nd to none. Above all her empathy and understanding of situations and circumstances has enabled Anita to provide direction and has made my experience as a client very rewarding.

Anita was a great inspiration to me in many aspects of my life. Through her encouragement and “homework” assignments, she helped me develop enough self-esteem to make some major changes in my life. When we first began speaking, I was looking for a new job. She helped me develop a list of questions to pose in interviews, in order to get exactly the type of job that I wanted, and which I now have. Anita gave me perspective in my approach to different aspects in my life. She helped me learn that “no one would die” if I played the piano in public, or if I cooked a different meal. Our weekly conversations helped keep me on track and focused on what is important to me, focus on the goals I wanted to achieve, such as a healthy work environment and a fulfilling life outside the law.

I am a Certified Financial Planner, and I have had the pleasure of working with Anita over the past year. Before I started working with her, it seemed like I was not getting ahead. My business was not going where I wanted it to go. I was frustrated. Anita dissected in great detail all of my business activities. She soon discovered my problem and made excellent suggestions to eliminate it. Two days ago I picked up a cheque for over one million dollars to invest. This was one of the largest personal cheques to be deposited on our office. In addition, my business activity has picked up, and the future looks great. If you are serious about your business or personal life, you cannot go wrong by sitting down with her. Thanks Anita, for all that you have done for me.

I really enjoyed my first coaching experience. I especially enjoyed the manner in which you catered the sessions to my needs. You asked many important questions in the beginning so as to properly approach me as a client. It is helpful to have someone who does not have an emotional or personal connection to you who can both listen and provide clarity to some of the emotions you are feeling or the issues you are dealing with. You were very well versed in the latest assessment tools and research in my areas of interest, which mainly deal with career pathing.

Anita uniquely combines incredible professionalism with passion and a sense of humanity. It is a rare gift and blessing to anyone who benefits from it.

I had reached a time in my life where I needed to be focused, but where? I needed a new direction. They say there are no coincidences in life. I believe that myself. I had met Anita because of my Real Estate business; the conversation in general opened the door to coaching. She has been instrumental in helping me focus; find direction in so many aspects of my personal, financial and Real Estate career. Her inspiration through personal tragedies was comforting. Anita always knew what to say, or a book to read to help me in my journey. In life we have many journeys—- this was one of my most special because of Anita. Thanks so much with all my heart—–my life has been transformed.
