Our Clients Say it Best!

“I was looking for help to build a new adventure with my interior design business and

I got so much more…”


When I started working with Angela I expected to get practical business advice and step-by-step instructions on how to build and grow my business.   Instead I got so much more.  She has helped me get out of my own way and look at the world from an entirely different perspective.  She listens and advises, helping me find the right path or best decision in my own way.  I often tell people when recommending her that she is like the perfect boss and the best cheerleader anyone could ask for.

“You have been the guiding light in getting this vision to the finish line!”

The more I reflect on the past two years, the more I realize the universe gave me the time and space to create the place of my dreams.   You have truly been the guiding light in getting this vision to the finish line. Thanks, Coach, for the continued wisdom, guidance, and support.   You’re the BEST…truly an ANGEL to me.

“You reframe my challenges and present

a genius solution!”

I have a view and an opinion about challenges in my business.  I’m a smart person and a good problem solver but you reframe and show them to me in a different way.  A way that I never ever thought of before.  I will think about something all day long and after talking with you, you will say something genius.  I get stuck in my head.  Your reframing the challenges and unique solutions is the most valuable thing in my business.

” My business coach is THE greatest tool in my business.”

An interior designer from my networking group once asked me, “if you had to pick only one, what is the greatest tool for your business?”.  I said, it’s my business coach, Angela Merola.  She helped grow my business with the kind of clients and projects I wanted and helped me launch a 30 year dream collection of rugs, fabric and wall paper.
