Episode 25: Krista Rizzo Talks About Life Coaching

Sometimes the road not taken can lead to something even better. That was the experience of Krista Rizzo. She wanted to be a talk show host and so entered a contest. She lost, but what she gained was a voice. She began to write a blog to showcase the real life stories of real people. Soon she realized she had found her passion – helping others map out their own journeys professionally and personally. She is now a Certified Transformational Life Coach, Author, Speaker, Video Show Host, Wife & The World’s Okayest Mom to two amazing boys.
