About Me

I help people give birth to their big ideas. The people who are my best co-conspiritors are people who have "that thing" - that thing they need to get out of them, that thing they've been doodling on napkins and in notebooks for 10 years, that thing they can't not do.

I'm a midwife. Together, my clients and I birth businesses, products, workshops, retreats, books, campaigns, social movements and more.

You bring the dream, the drive and the determination, I bring strategic thinking, hand-holding, ass-kicking, and a thoughtful, purposeful design process. Together, we ask and answer the hard questions. Together, we get to work, take action, and build momentum. No more "someday"s.

My Anthem (from Sally Hogshead's Fascination Advantage): "I facilitate bold action and follow-through".

I work with people who are ready to put their principles into practice, who are ready to live their lives fully, and who are tired of hearing their own excuses.

This is who I am, how I was put together, what I was put here to do. This is the craft I've been studying and honing for more than a decade.

I help people give birth to something new, or to find clarity and action in 'stuck' situations. If that's you, let's talk.

Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

Wildly Free :: Majestic :: Full of Grace

Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

I began on my own, before licensing or workshops were an option. I booked an AirBnB, cozy cabin in the woods, for a 4 day weekend. Just me, the book and workbook, my deck of Goddess Cards, a few items for my altar, and lots of pens and markers.

I also had access to the Virtual Workshop, available only to The Desire Map Licensees (ask me if you want to know more about that).

This virtual workshop was really the tool that took it to the next level for me. I'm not sure I would or could have gotten to the deep level of integration on my own with just the book. Some of my most powerful moments of clarity came through the words and wisdom of the facilitator. She answered questions, I know now, come up in every group. She helped us gain a deeper understanding of the WHY of The Desire Map, as well as some of the more nuanced details of clarifying how a CDF (Core Desired Feeling) differs from your every day run of the mill feelings.

For me, having an experienced facilitator and a group of peers traveling the same path was essential. I know myself, and I know that having an experienced guide is important when I'm learning something new. It helped to have the group there to hold me accountable and keep me moving forward. That's why I am called to add The Desire Map Workshops to my palette of facilitation tools.

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

UPDATE: I moved to Portugal for 3 months. For the past year, I've traveled and lived more places than I can count, all while building and growing a thriving coaching and consulting practice. I am creating the life I couldn't even have dreamed a year ago (much less 3 years ago, the first time I completed Desire Map). It would be hard to tell you story of a time in the past 3 years that knowing my CDFs HASN'T changed my life. <3

ORIGINAL (for posterity): Hmmmm....well, right now, it comes in small moments - those moments where my CDFs sneak in the backdoor I didn't remember leaving open. When I choose to eat grilled asparagus, with my fingers, standing barefoot in my kitchen, listening to "Live like a Warrior" by Matisyahu.

That in itself isn't anything all that new...what IS new, what IS life changing....is that I no longer feel 'bad' or self-conscious about it. No guilt, no shame. In fact, I know by simply being all of me in that moment, I'm saying YES. YES to the Universe's invitation to bring more of MY CDFs into this world, in to my life. In that moment, I am Wildly Free, I am Majestic, I am Full of Grace.

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

Having been a facilitator and consultant for more than 10 years, I have seen people struggle over and over with goal setting and with trying to create the life and work they want.

The setting of the goals is the easy part. The fulfilling them, the staying on track and following through - that's where things end up feeling not so sparkly. The Desire Map is a tool that breaks through the barriers that prevent people from getting what they want!

When you're tapped into your CDFs - when they're singing through you moment to moment, you don't have to worry that things won't get done. The clarity that comes is a catalyst for bold action and follow through. Once we know how we want to feel, the action FLOWS!

Testimonials

The Desire Map Retreat will rejuvenate you and bring you peace, especially because it's led by Angie Cole who cares deeply about other people and that they get what they want and what they paid for!

Desire Map (Level 2) :: 1-on-1 Coaching

Led By: Angie Cole
You've already completed Level 1, you've got a handful of new shiny CDFs...Now what?!?!

Yeah, I know how you feel. That's why I've developed a next-level-ninja offering for those who are hungry for more.

Based on more than a decade of experience as a life, business, and executive coach, together we co-create your Level 2 experience.

We'll revisit your CDFs to handle any updates or evolutions that might be ready to happen. From there, we'll hone in on the areas of your life where you're ready to create change. Using your CDFs as the compass, we'll get specific and create strategies for infusing your life with more of the good stuff. Not 'someday', but right now.

This is typically a 6-12 session engagement (depending on how recently you completed Level 1). They can be more condensed for someone who wants to dive in and work quickly, or spaced out over a 3-6 month period for folks who like a slower pace to integrate over time. These begin on a rolling basis so please reach out to talk about timing specific to you. (Only 3 spots available.)

Alchemy of Desire :: A 3 Day Retreat

Led By: Angie Cole
Make no mistake, this will shake things up. I call it Alchemy for a reason. Once you commit to this process, and give yourself permisison to go all in (don't worry, I'm here to help with that part), things are going to change. They are going to transform. Transformation means that something changes in an essential way. It is a different thing than it was before - there's no going back to the way things were. This is what happens when you discover and claim your Core Desired Feelings. Together, that's exactly what we are going to do. So now you're asking :: How, When, Where?? Join me for a 3-day, in-person, all luxuries included, pamper yourself (You deserve it.), weekend retreat. The basics... Dates + Times :: Friday, 4pm, 2/12 through Sunday, 3pm, 2/14. Place :: Beautiful Jewell Lodge at Wavus Camps, Jefferson, ME. This is the adult 'summer camp' of your dreams!! Ticket for One please :: $397 Bring a Friend :: $297 (you both get $100 off!) Payment plan also available :: 4 payments of $99 The FULL Monty :: $597 (Retreat Ticket + 3 High Powered, 1-1 Coaching Sessions) (This being said, if the dollars are the thing standing between you and the freedom and power that comes from discoverying your Core Desired Feelings, let's talk.) If all of this is making sense to you, like BIG important, light bulbs and sirens going off kind of sense, then this is exactly what you've been looking for. Come on in, have a seat, we've got this.
