Meet Monique Boyd of Maryland. She is no stranger to BOND Inc. Through the years, Monique has supported many of BOND’s initiatives through her work as a relationship coach. Monique owns and operates a business where she offers life/relationship coaching, image consulting and personal training services. Her mission is to help people transform their lives so they can move to the next level. Monique’s vision is that the people she serves will begin to pursue their dreams, discover new ways of thinking and be empowered to make better decisions for their lives.
I started my business to help build stronger African American families through stronger relationships and partnerships. It has since expanded into other services that we believe are the keys to building a stronger community. Through our life/relationship coaching, we’re able to help people identify and diagnose the challenges in their lives which are preventing them from the success they desire and develop strategies and action plans to help resolve those challenges. We also began offering image consulting services because we realized the importance of having a healthy self-image and how you present yourself to the world. Last, we would be remiss if we helped people do all the inner work on themselves and forget about the outer work which includes keeping ourselves healthy and fit for our own survival. Our motto is that “we transform you from the inside out!”
My greatest accomplishment to date has been:
Seeing my clients grow and transform their lives. I’m always amazed at how hard my clients work and how much effort they put into becoming better people. I always feel like a proud momma when I see my clients move into healthier relationships.
The most challenging thing I ever experienced has been:
Not being able to help people who can’t afford my services or they’re in a situation which is beyond any help I can give them. When you have a business, you have to do what’s right for the business and that may mean turning some people away that really need your help. That is the most heart breaking thing that I have ever experienced but I do have a meet up group which is free and I encourage those who can’t afford my private one on one services to join these groups. I also host workshops on specific topics which are offered at a relatively low cost and may be a viable option for those in need of semi-private coaching.
My most valuable lesson:
I’m telling my age here but having lived this earth 30 some years, I’ve learned to accept people as they are in life. Being judgmental does nothing but stop you from understanding people and developing a sense of tolerance for a person’s individual self-expression. People have choices and their lives are a direct reflection of those choices. No matter how much you try to steer a person in the right direction, they still have to walk it alone. As Maya Angelou says, “when you know better….you do better”.
I love helping people to succeed. My strength and inspiration comes in helping people achieve their greatness in life. If you’re looking to make changes in your life and my services interest you, please contact me immediately. I look forward to hearing from you!
