I’m Ana Melikian, the host of the MINDSET ZONE podcast and the CEO of AMAZE Coaching LLC.
I love to help business owners achieve their goals!
I have a soft spot in my heart for coaches and consultants who are great at what they do, yet hate to market and sell.
I do my best work with people who are purpose-driven, creative, self-aware, lifelong learners, and determined to walk their talk.
I also passionate about speaking to organizations who know how important it is to foster a culture of personal growth.
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 (in Spain), a Ph.D. in Psychology (in England), lectured at a Private University (in Portugal) and traveled to conferences and workshops every opportunity I had.
As you can see I love to travel, and 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. I understood the importance of working on mindsets in order to succeed.
I then realized that I had found my passion – explore the mindset zone to expand possibilities!!!
Because I’m a lifelong learner myself, I decided to learn from the best. I enrolled to study with Michael Port, the NY Times Best Selling author and creator of Book Yourself Solid®. I also had the opportunity to work with Matthew Kimberley, the Head of the Book Yourself Solid® School of Coach Training.
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’m also the creator and host of the MINDSET ZONE podcast that is 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.
MINDSET ZONE podcast has over 400 THOUSAND downloads!
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.
It has been an incredible journey! 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.
In 2018, I launched Tech Tips For Coaches, a very affordable membership site designed to help coaches, consultants, and trainers to navigate the online world and market their services online with ease and joy!
