Fearless Decisions Empower Choices (Angie Colee)

  • Episode #127

Angie Colee shares her compelling journey from being laid off by the Oprah Winfrey Network to becoming a coach. Having faced her own crossroads, she understands the desperation for direction — but knows it needs to be matched with embracing intuition.

Angie Colee is a business mentor, author, podcaster, and digital nomad based in Austin, Texas.

In this episode Melinda and Angie talk about:

  • Overcoming the paralysis of decision-making by eliminating perceived risks
  • The emotional similarities among clients regardless of their nature
  • A coin-flip exercise as a lighthearted way to help clients access their intuition
  • The “act as if” exercise that helps clients explore potential outcomes and gain decision-making clarity
  • The role of physical sensations in managing overwhelming decision-making processes
  • Coaching’s role in providing perspective and not assuming clients’ needs
  • The balance between directive guidance and empathy in the client-coach relationship
  • Processing emotions as a significant part of overcoming resistance to decisions
  • The “I don’t know” response from clients as a critical point for coaching intervention
  • The importance of clients’ self-trust and ownership of their decision-making process
  • Using low-stakes practice scenarios for safer decision-making
“We can’t attach to the outcomes. That’s where I think a lot of the suffering and the anxiety comes from, because we pretend like we’ve got control. We don’t.”

— Angie Colee

Angie Colee is a business mentor for rule breakers and rebels. She believes creativity is one of the most valuable assets on the planet, that business skills can be learned by anyone, and that people (NOT profits or processes) are the most important part of business.

Her mission is to help you grow your business with more confidence and less stress… without becoming a completely different person or losing your edge.

Angie has a master’s degree from Carnegie Mellon and has consulted with and run creative teams for Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula (PLF), MasterClass, Lowe’s, Copy Chief, Orzy Media, and Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad brand.

When she’s not writing or publishing new episodes of her podcast, Permission to Kick Ass, you’ll find her on the road living as a full-time digital nomad with her cats, Stella and Ollie.
