How to be intuitively guided

with Holly Hughes

Do I need a coach?

How is an executive coach different than a life coach?

Will it be worth the investment?

Will it work for me?

These may be some of the questions floating around your mind.

Here are some quick answers:


Coaching helps successful entrepreneurs and executives become more successful by reaching and sustaining peak performance. Studies show that coaching top executives at large companies yields 5-7x the company or individual's initial investment. 


I am a certified executive coach who's worked with startup founders, entrepreneurs, and executive leadership teams of Fortune 500 companies.

We’ve helped hundreds of clients, including some of the hottest names in Silicon Valley, move from concept to profitability, through IPOs and acquisitions as well as venture fundraising.

The result of coaching is that clients work with more ease and happiness, are more effective and higher performing leaders, and achieve a greater flow in all areas of their lives.

If that sounds like something you need, then you're in the right place.

If you want someone who's going to only tell you what you want to hear, we won't be a fit.

Are you stuck?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above, you can exhale and know that you've come to the right place.

I'm Coach Elizabeth

I get female CEOs and Entreprenuers unstuck

I'm an ex-sales executive, turned entrepreneur, and coach.

My 15 years in corporate sales working for startups, helping them grow to acquisition, ensures that I understand your world.
My years coaching women in high-pressure, high visibility positions, ensures that I have the tools to get you to the next level.
My spiritual awakening 8 years ago ensures I know how to get you to tap into your soul's power as well.

I help women who are:
- facing career transitions (voluntary or involuntary)
- feeling a dwindling passion for their jobs
- feeling misunderstood or underappreciated in their male-dominated fields

Take back your power and operate from a place of deep peace and confidence.
You don't have to go it alone-- your male counterparts likely aren't.

What I do

I provide  Executive Career and Mindest Coaching for Powerhouse Women who know there's more beneath the surface.

My no B.S. approach isn't for everyone, but if you want big changes fast- there can be no sugarcoating. If you're not in enough pain or frustrated enough to take massive action, then I'm not the coach for you.

Who I help

I exclusively coach women in the following fields:
- Technology
- Finance
- Marketing & Media
- Sales (mainly with national or global reach in CPG)
- Insurance
- Hospitality
- Physicians
- Entrepreneurs ($500,000 min annual revenue)

Executive Leadership levels
- President
- C-Suite
- Owner, Founder

How you get unstuck

Invest in yourself.

I'm not cheap, but you get what you pay for. 

If you want big, dramatic, positive change in your life it's going to require a commitment-- mentally, physically, spiritually, and financially.

So ask yourself, is there anything more valuable than your happiness?

Go deep 

We'll get super-spiritual and I'll teach you how to allow your blessing to flow to you, rather than grinding and trying to force your desires to manifest.

Our relationship won't be surface-level. If you're not ready to get deep into the shit of how you got to the place you are in today-- I'm not the coach for you

Honor the 22-year-old-you

It's time to make her proud. She had BIG dreams for you.

But you've been telling her to "hush" while you make money, exhaust yourself for others, and fulfill "obligations".

If we work together, she becomes the boss, and we're going to listen to every word she has to say.

We're going to overcome subconscious blocks holding you back and causing you to forget your divine power.

Hire an expert 

The person who has the job, life, or peace you want is working with a coach to get it.

They're just not announcing it.

As Seen On & In



Laura Alexander

SVP Regis Haircare

Minneapolis, MN

"Elizabeth is a Godsend.


I sought her out as an executive coach while I was struggling to determine my core strengths and passions, and direction for the future. She helped clear the fog and focus on my goals through research, visualization, and some serious self-reflection. She provided tough love when I needed it, and a strong foundation of support throughout the process.


Her proprietary methodology is life-changing, and I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking clarity and purpose."

Laura Chisholm

COO RMS Beauty

Charleston, SC

"Lifechanging is not a superlative I use often … but that is Elizabeth Pearson.


My work with Elizabeth has allowed me to rapidly identify how to channel my passions and experience to define my next steps. Her program combines big-picture goal setting with accountability exercises and a dose of spirituality to create an environment of positivity and support. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone who is looking for ‘something more’ or to take a satisfying career to the next level."

Rebecka Marcucci

Product Manager, Tinder

Los Angeles, CA

"I can’t say enough how thankful I am to have had Elizabeth on my side during my job search this year!


Elizabeth's holistic approach to career coaching provided me with both tactical tools and personal growth exercises. This combination of support allowed me to not only secure a new job during a global pandemic but rewarded me with 3 job offers in 1 month.

Elizabeth helped boost my confidence during the interview process and enabled me to negotiate an offer that resulted in a 45% increase in my original salary- a salary I didn’t even think was possible.


Needless to say, the investment was well worth it. I consider her an invaluable aspect of my career development and am excited to continue working with Elizabeth as I advance through additional career milestones. "

Tamara Curl-Green

Director, Marketing Communications

Los Angeles, CA

"I met Elizabeth at a critical point in my career. After losing my job, my self-esteem took a major hit. I reached out for help getting my resume and LinkedIn in order but Elizabeth saw me as a whole person. She helped me reframe my thinking around my self-worth as it pertains to my career. 


With her help, I've rediscovered my passion and began to build a roster of projects that excite me.


If you're looking for a positive force to shine a light on the best parts of your career and YOU, I can't recommend Elizabeth enough."

Sean Schmidt
Director of Strategy, Nike
Portland, OR

"Working with Elizabeth has been one of the great pleasures & privileges of my life.


Through her insight, humor & relentless encouragement, Elizabeth forever changed my perspective on who I am & what I am capable of.


She will change your life if you let her."

Christine Eun

Sr. Product Manager, Facebook

Palo Alto, CA

"Elizabeth is a master of her craft. 

No matter what you're going through, she is there with you to guide the way. 

Elizabeth is adept at enabling successful women because she is one herself and knows first-hand what it takes to be a business leader. 

What truly differentiates a coach is the ability to deeply understand someone and suggest solutions tailored to their personal "operating system": their values, motivations, and thought processes. 

Elizabeth does it all and more - with humor, confidence, and optimism."  

Natalie Sterlin

Senior Events Manager

Chicago, IL

"Elizabeth has changed my life both professionally and personally.   


She helped me work through my self-doubt and limiting beliefs to feel the inter-confidence that has always been there but hasn’t come out. She taught me skills that would allow me to be authentic while still being me.   

I now feel a new sense of openness, possibility, and energy as I tackle projects big and small and plot out major career and life goals. 

Grateful for her openness and non-judgmental ways."


Mona Mehta

Sr Dir. turned Holistic Wellness Coach

Dallas, TX

"My husband found Elizabeth and gifted me coaching sessions for my birthday.

Elizabeth has been life-changing. She is the cheerleader every woman needs in her corner - she's honest, no b.s., and believes in you.  Without her, I would not have had the courage to quit my job of 15-years and start planning a future that I had been dreaming about for 20-years. I'm confident with her continued guidance I will be able to build a successful future.

I can't recommend Elizabeth enough to women who are ready to make the next move but are afraid and/or just stuck.

Do it for yourself and your loved ones!"     

Samantha Lau-White

Director of Global Brand Strategy and Marketing

Los Angeles, CA

"Elizabeth got me unstuck.

This is not an understatement. In the midst of great uncertainty (2020), Elizabeth instilled such presence and confidence in me and helped me see my path clearly.

Elizabeth's style of deep intuition and spirituality married with keen business acumen is truly special and I am so grateful to know her."
