“I met Erin Williams through a friend mine, who is also a client of hers, and I started attending her group coaching sessions with, I must admit, quite a bit of doubt about the whole concept of "life coaching". I considered myself far too cool and well adjusted to be in need of any "coaching" from anybody. Weeks later, here I sit doing my very best to come up with the right adjectives to describe this amazing woman. She is real. She is one of "us", the countless women (and men) who have navigated a myriad of struggles, relationships, prejudices, frustrations, disappointments and the countless challenges and barriers that we all face and have to overcome as we build on our hopes and dreams and sometimes, just to make it through a really bad day. Erin is not just someone out there telling people what she thinks they want to hear; her gift is in the way she listens and hears what we are really saying and then challenging us to face the real stuff and decide what we are going to do about it. Erin has helped me realize, through my own self-assessment and evaluation, that I, just like the rest of us, could use a little of her brand of "coaching" from time to time. I'd recommend Erin to anyone, and have enlisted her to work with my daughter as she makes the transition from teenager to young woman. As a matter of fact; I wish I'd have had Erin around during that time in my life. Erin is one of a kind and I'm forever grateful to my friend for dragging me along to meet her!”

Consumer Affairs Lead/Project Manager
"Building character is the most difficult, most rewarding work I've ever done--and Erin has helped me in every part of the process -- from choosing the next step in my development, to encouragement in reframing ['disaster' situations]/[defeats] into growing experiences.Thanks to Erin I've learned how character can be built, brick by brick, piece by piece; and that the life I want to live can be designed, constructed, moulded according to a plan--my own. It feels amazing to be in the driver's seat of my own life -- finally."
"Erin’s coaching sessions have been instrumental in helping me discover key points which allowed me to create positive change in my life. Her experience in corporate America and business acumen make professional goals attainable, while her caring yet no nonsense approach, makes personal goals easy to achieve. With Erin and her coaching, I feel I have gained a better sense of self and a friend."
"I have been working with Erin since 2009. By hiring her I was hoping to explore new horizons in my already well-established recruitment practice. To be exact my goal is to lead the list of the most influential recruiters by 2020. She helped me to create a fair and accurate understanding and appreciation of myself - the “as-is version”; set up the “to-be” version; identify steps to move from point A to point B. While being on a journey with her from point A to point B, I enjoyed her fun, creative and respectful style, professionalism, life experience she has to offer, and of course the end result – increase in my productivity. It was refreshing to be reminded that I am beautiful, sexy, smart FEMALE, and by being feminine I succeeded tremendously in my career. What worked very well in our co-operation is that by “unleashing” the true self, and letting it fly significantly increased the height at which I fly. She guides me how to be myself, and by doing so to enjoy every moment of life to the ends’ degree. Hiring Erin is one of the better investments I ever made into myself."
Director of Executive Recruitment
"Erin was an absolute star for our company. She coached 2 of my executives both employees were very different; one was just promoted to the VP level and the second was a senior VP. Erin was able connect with both of them. She has a very direct style and gets straight to point. I was able to see results within the first 2 meetings she had with my executives. I highly recommend her services."
"I am a reader and through my reading I understand that success is built on a foundation of support. In many cases that support comes from family and friends, but sometimes we need an independent observer to provide us with the opportunity to step outside our defined boundaries and challenge ourselves to be more than we currently are. When I relocated to Houston I was given the phenomenal opportunity to become more. With a new job and new opportunities I began to wonder who this person in the mirror was and who could I ultimately be? I found myself wanting to be more and looking for that “independent observer” to challenge my core beliefs. I have not always liked what Erin has had to say and in some areas there has been outright resistance on my behalf to step out of the comfort zone I call my life. But that was what I was searching for and as I look back over the past year, where I started from to where I am now; I am more today then I was yesterday. I have waded through some of the muck and challenges of the past and for the first time in many years I am seeing the unbelievable potential of that person I see in the mirror. Thanks Erin for the support and challenging me to be real, alive, to be all that I can be!!"
"I had the pleasure of working with Erin Williams for about five months during her short-term contract with VT2 Studios, one of the largest video production companies in Texas. It only took one meeting with Erin to realize that she is a very unique and gifted professional that adapts quickly to new situations. Her astute business sense, insightfulness, and objectivity towards difficult business situations, immediately qualified her to become an integral part of the executive top-level decision making process within the company.
Erin possesses a special gift to be able think on her feet and present meaningful advice, without pre-judgment or being condescending in any way. She gains respect with whomever she interacts; from the President of the company to the Receptionist.
Although I am no longer at VT2, Erin and I continue as friends, as I always find our conversations to be thought provoking and insightful. I still seek her advice and objectivity regarding my professional and personal life strategies, her unique perspective and inspiration is helpful when trying to make difficult decisions, set professional goals, or even just trying to make sense of current life events.
In summary, I have the utmost respect for Erin Williams, her professionalism as a consultant, and her unique abilities as a Life Coach. If you are reading this reference because you are considering investing in Erin’s professional services, my advice is that you meet her and see for yourself – I doubt you will be disappointed. I give Erin my highest professional recommendation. Feel free to email me if you would like for more information."
“I learned more about myself in one session with Erin than with all of myself help books and tapes combined.”
"After meeting and working with Erin Williams my career has reached a new plateau of success. By setting goals and working hard to achieve those goals, it has been amazing to watch what I can accomplish. Erin has truly taught me that my destiny is what I make of it, and I am in total control of my life and my business. I am 100% focused on the future and what I can do to make it the best it can be and I owe that focus and drive to Erin."
"Erin Williams, a woman described in these words: intelligent, compassionate, comical, inspiring and lovable. She is a woman whose inspiration is fuel for others. Knowing Erin through a business relationship and as a friend, listening to her trials of life and seeing the road she has chosen to take, is more than just a resume’ of life, but a guideline for others to follow."
"Erin is the best life coach on the planet. She not only provides you with the tools to succeed, but she genuinely cares that you do. If you are looking for personal and or professional growth, Erin is the only person you should even consider calling."

"Working with Erin over the past several months has been an extremely wonderful and productive experience. Not only have I been able to meet my initial goal, within a few weeks. Since then, she has helped to keep me focused and motivated to see my idea go from a concept to reality. Now rather than wishing to have my ideal life, with Erin’s help, I feel that I am creating it. It is truly an empowering feeling!! I believe she is doing her true calling in life and feel blessed to work with someone with such exceptional passion and knowledge for their craft. Thank you Erin!!"
"If I had to tell someone about Erin Williams and what she has done in my life, it might as well be a book. I have and will always look up to Erin Williams. Before I signed with a modeling agency or even said her name once, I will not forget the way she changed my life by saying to a 15-year-old girl with acne, braces, and glasses, “You are beautiful.” That girl was me. It may not be much to anyone reading this, but when you are an awkward nerd of a little girl on your way to womanhood, no one really EVER says that to you except your mother. Erin Williams saw potential in me as a model, which goes to show that most people in business feed you lines of “what you want to hear” versus “what you really hear.” She trained me, counseled me, and was and is always honest when I make any decision in the modeling market. My ten year modeling career has been composed of a lot of hard work and driving passion. Overall, I owe my career start and success to Erin Williams who is my coach and my friend."
