Today we’d like to introduce you to Arica Angelo.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Arica. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
As a young newly divorcee, single in a new city, I found myself having to figure out dating. I would soon learn that I enjoyed dating immensely and got so good at it, a friend of mine said “Hey you should start writing about this!”
From a simple blog, to books and a YouTube channel so my journey into being a dating coach escalated and evolved.
But… it wasn’t enough.
I kept running up against the same challenge with all my clients, their problem wasn’t with dating…
It was with intimacy.
I had to take a real honest look at myself as a dating coach and realize I wasn’t really solving their problems by focusing on dating.
If I really wanted to make an impact in my clients lives, I would have to dig deeper, explore more the nature of the heart and radically shift my message.
And here I am today, leading people into the mysteries of intimacy and restoring love back into their lives.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Smooth road? HA! What’s that?
No way. Entrepreneurship has been a really difficult road and many times I had to take a 9-5 job while building my coaching business.
I have sold shoes in Beverly Hills, jewelry, caviar, you name it, anything to keep the lights on and build my dream.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to throw in the towel and just give up.
There were times in my life where those closest to me questioned me as to if I really wanted this.
But coaching people into the terrains of their hearts is in my DNA, it’s in my blood and when you feel something that strongly, there’s no walking away.
(Thankfully I’ve had the love and support of many who gave me the strength when I felt like I couldn’t go on anymore.)
The Arica Angelo Intimacy Experience – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I specialize in intimacy, but often times when I share with people about this, they don’t have a clue as to what I’m talking about.
“Do you help people with sex?”, to which I giggle and say “of course sex, that’s very important… but so much more.”
Many times, people have intimacy blocks that prevent them from connecting with the people they love, the opposite sex and even in business with their partners and colleagues.
Connection, communication and helping people move beyond those deep seeded fears is my specialty.
When my clients tell me that they’re finally able to connect with their loved ones and even themselves like never before… well I still get very moved and it’s a sobering thought that my work can transform another human being’s life.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
To me, success is something very personal and it’s not a one size fits all. But if I can travel freely, provide for the ones I love and do it all with a sense of inner peace, well that’s what makes me truly successful.
