People can easily achieve success and fulfillment when they put their ducks in a row – mindset, strategies, and implementation.
Hi! I’m Ana Melikian, the host of the MINDSET ZONE podcast, and CEO of AMAZE Coaching LLC.
I was born in Portugal and lived in Europe until 2003. While there, I spent much of my time in academia where I received two masters in psychotherapy, a Ph.D. in Psychology, and lectured at the Universities in Portugal and Spain.
I traveled to conferences and workshops every opportunity I had.
On one of my trips to the United States, I met my life partner. That is the main reason I picked Phoenix, Arizona as my home, where I live now with my husband James and daughter Isabella.
My experience in academia taught me how to teach people effectively with metaphors and images.
This helps me explain complex concepts in a simple and understandable way.
From Psychotherapy, I transitioned to Life Coaching and decided to build an online business to create positive change.
I quickly realized that I was a needle in a haystack, and knew that if other “needles” were seen and successful, I could learn how they did it and do it myself.
So, I started to study online marketing. I learned what worked and didn’t work. I began to help others take their business online.
Now, I’m an Elite-Level Book Yourself Solid® Certified Coach, as well as, a Board Certified Coach (BCC), a Certified Life Coach (CLC), and a 12 Week Year Certified Trainer – what can I say, I come from academia and love to learn new stuff in order to help my clients. You may call me a “collector” of certifications.
I have a soft spot in my heart for coaches, consultants, trainers, and speakers who are great at what they do, yet hate to market and sell.
For more than a decade, I've been helping these service professionals create and leverage a super simple digital presence based on their humanity.
I also thrive when working with other business owners and leaders who want to amplify their impact.
All of us need to work on our mindsets in order to succeed.
That realization brought me back home to Psychology, specifically Business Psychology that focuses on applying psychological insights for the success and fulfillment of individuals, groups, and organizations.
In 2014, I’ve created the MINDSET ZONE podcast that was featured in The Huffington Post “15 Podcasts That Will Leave You Pondering Life’s Big Questions,” and during its launch, reached #1 in iTunes’ New & Noteworthy in Business, Management & Marketing, Health, Self-Help, Education, and Training.
In 2015, I co-founded the More Clients More Fun, where we developed leading-edge LinkedIn strategies for business development to land high-value clients.
We have delivered training to over 10,000 business owners in six continents, and worked with over 250 training and coaching companies and organizations including Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching®, The Ken Blanchard Companies®, Book Yourself Solid®, The Corporate Agent®, and the Association of Corporate Executive Coaches® – ACEC.
I also founded Solo Biz Academy, a very affordable membership site designed to help coaches, consultants, trainers, and speakers to navigate the online world and market their services online with ease and joy!
I'm also the Director of Education for Book Yourself Solid®.
