Dr. Grace Lee

CEO Mastery Insights

I am a career mentor & educator, neuroscience expert and speaker helping career-driven professionals joyfully earn more, be more, and experience greatness—an ultimate level of success and reward in their work and life. Given my personal experience where I found that my academic and educational training weren’t nearly sufficient to help me overcome my challenges let alone achieve the greatness I was destined for, I am on a mission to redefine modern education, teaching men and women how to unlock true vocational confidence and master their professional destinies. My approach uses brain-based coaching for career and life integration.

I am a transformational business and life coach who believes that for many women, the capacity to receive is the missing link to their authentic and lasting success. The money story is a worthiness story and we can't receive success when we don't feel worthy.

Angelica Rodriguez

Executive Coach & Non-Profit Executive Angelica Rodriguez

Hi, my name is Angelica Rodriguez. Currently, I'm working as a non-profit executive and launching a corporate executive coaching practice. I'm navigating entrepreneurship because I have found so many organizations with leaders who truly wanted to see big change and transformation. Unfortunately, there were so many hidden roadblocks and a lot of the times, the small steps and minimal risks that were taken didn’t lead to the big transformation they intended. I work with leaders to go “below the surface” to uncover what is holding them back from identifying and leading the big transitions needed to catapult their organizations to industry-leading mainstays. Through a co-creative process, I help executive clients break down silos and get people talking about what is “hard” and “scary” to overcome the mindset of “we’ve always done it this way.”

Monisha Kapur

Founder- Style Coach and Virtual Personal Stylist 344PM, LLC

I’m a style coach and virtual stylist. I work with women entrepreneurs and executives to help them find their signature style and dress to their unique personal brand. At the ripe old age of 8 I knew I wanted a career in fashion. I worked in NYC’s fashion industry moving through the ranks from women’s shoe buyer to product developer to merchandiser and everything in between. After 15+ years in the industry I decided to pivot and spend some quality time with my daughter while going after my entrepreneurial dream. In November of 2013 I launched 344pm- an online personal styling consultancy start up.
