After working long hours in a career she did not enjoy and living in a city close to where she grew up, Krista Talley knew there was more to life. After setting out to find a more meaningful personal and professional life, she found herself in Austin. Changing paths personally and professionally can be overwhelming but she believes that success and happiness come as soon as one chooses to be vulnerable.

Vulnerability Leads to Success

Having had personal experience in working long hours in an industry she did not enjoy, Krista set out to help others like herself who felt stuck and often hopeless in their career. Coaching allows her to help clients find the “light at the end of the tunnel” and help them understand vulnerability is key to success.
