As a new mom and business owner, my time is obviously limited. Working with Dominique helped me learn how to look at time differently and reorganize my schedule so I could feel good about being mom and still run my business like a boss.

Dominique Anders is truly insightful, intuitive, rigorous and inspiring. She has given me incredible tools and consistent guidance to keep me on my path towards what it is that I truly want out of life. Direct and effective, Dominique was able to see through my excuses and laziness and somehow able to flip in a way that gets me motivated and back into inspired action. Highly recommend her if you are ready to get to the next level in your life and career.
-- Danielle Z, Los Angeles, CA
I’d been at a loss on how to climb that ladder at work so I hired Dominique for guidance. She helped me come up with a plan on how to ask for more money, a better title and more flexibility with my hours. So far, my boss has agreed to let me work from home 2 days a week!
-- Jesse K., Los Angeles, CA
As a mom of 3 and a manager at work, I’ve never had time for myself and it was taking it’s toll on me. I was looking for a coach who could be firm and compassionate at the same time. From our first phone call, I knew I found that in Dominique. While she always listens and motivates me, she also calls me out which has helped me really see the areas in which I can improve and be better with juggling my career and my family life.
-- Cary W., Chicago, IL
Dominique really listens between the lines. I had spent so much time laboring how to handle certain situations and thought that I was really getting bogged down with the unproductive time. She quickly pinpointed my needed focus and communication and helped me reformulate how I could achieve the best outcome in my interactions.
-- Lisa H. Santa Cruz, CA
Traveling for work usually means unhealthy food and limited time for workouts. After being unhappy and living this way for 5 years, I finally did something about it and hired Dominique - best decision I ever made! Not only do I feel and look healthier, but now I also am aware of my habits so I can avoid falling back into the cycle of that unhealthy lifestyle.
-- Angela D., Los Angeles, CA
As you know, no one has all the answers so I don't pretend that I do. But what I do have is the experience, insight and tools to help you find them.
Expect to be all in. Working with a coach is an investment in yourself. There's no point in spending the time or the money if you're not ready to put in the work.
Progress doesn't happen over night. If you're results driven like me, that might make you frustrated, but know that big change sometimes comes from small steps.
Get uncomfortable. You might have a lot of questions, feel stuck or even get a little frustrated. Good! That's how we know we're making progress. Most change feels uncomfortable at first, right?
Hello, Just Focus is a (6) week program designed to elicit dedication, commitment and strategic action towards your goals.
Each week, we focus on a different area of your goal, all while creating mini-achievements along the way.
As a producer and director for over a decade in the entertainment industry, I’ve been coaching creatives, veteran talent and newbies in front of the camera long before I realized coaching was a career itself. Aside from working one on one with individuals, I've also built, led and helped teams conceive, create and execute their projects. (To see more, check here and here.)
As a creative myself, I used to have a ton on my plate. My schedule looked like a Jenga puzzle; ready to crash at any moment. My life was heavily dominated by work and creative projects. Problem was, I wasn't finishing anything. I kept thinking that if I could just find the time to “be creative”, I could do it.
Only 5 years in and I was frustrated. It took observing those around me to see something I didn’t like: the creatives I'd admired were working insanely long hours, putting their personal lives on hold and eventually burning out. These incredibly talented and intelligent creatives, became complacent and put their passion projects on the back burner. They were successful, but they'd lost their mojo.
I had to make a decision; continue down the path I was on or figure out a way to change.
These days, I have the best of both worlds. I've blended my career in entertainment with my coaching practice which allows me to do the two things I love everyday and my job is to help you do the same.
