Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Alicia Holland.
Dr. Alicia “Alise”, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
It all began when I was in my room writing in my journal about my day from school back in middle school. I received a spiritual vision that would change my life and others forever. The idea of writing a book was part of that vision, along with opening a business to help others believe in themselves and go far, only to learn that I had to leave the place that raised me, my hood in Many, Louisiana. Before leaving Louisiana to teach in Round, Rock, Texas, I had to close my tutoring business.
In 2004, at the age of 20, I got my first teaching assignment to teach in middle school and that’s when I realized that there was something more going on in my life. I started tutoring and that’s when Realistic Measures & Consulting was born in 2007. I didn’t put a lot of energy into it at that time because, within that timespan, my husband and I had a young baby girl and another baby girl on the way. While teaching full-time, taking care of my family, and finishing up my doctorate. I managed to graduate at the age of 26 and write that book that my intuition had shown me back when I was a teenager. The book is called “Becoming a Better Tutor: A Data-Driven Approach to Tutoring. That one book catapulted to a book series titled, “Expand Your Tutoring Business” that has four books to help you expand your own tutoring business. At that time, that’s when I got serious about following the visions that I got from that point on.
Two major things happened in my life that were catalysts to force me to finally walk away and leave my past behind to follow my dreams. In 2010, I had a terrible car accident that left me not able to care for myself or my family resulting in major setbacks in my life. In 2013, I was choked after having a tonsillectomy and had to make a very difficult decision to end my marriage. I got another spiritual message in October 2015 and the voice said, “Move West”. So, my daughters and I moved on to the West Coast in less than two weeks with only $50 to my name.
Because of these two tremendous life experiences, that burning passion on the inside of me to believe in myself and go far to be the example for my daughters, I had to do what I had to do–so I stepped out on faith to create my own destiny to help others believe in themselves and go far.
The idea for Realistic Measures & Consulting has always been in the making but the vision is crystal-clear as we now work with business owners, creative geniuses, professional athletes, academics, celebrities, and ordinary people who are willing, ready, and able to do extraordinary things in their life. Just this year, I received another spiritual vision about moving into the field of psychology since I am already an Intuitive Business Consultant. So guess what…you guessed it?! LOL! I am officially enrolled in the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) program at California Southern University to expand our coaching practice as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in California.
Additionally, I share my life’s story through the book series, Linelle Destiny, and we partner with the Non-Profit, Linelle Destiny Holland International to continue to do the work to help others believe in themselves. At the end of the day, we want our community and the world to know that we are dedicated to changing lives one realistic measure at a time no matter which side of the tracks you come from.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Once I moved to the West Coast, I experienced career challenges that motivated me to continue to move forward and be a Merchant of Hope to others and help them navigate the mud of life. The moment I stepped out on faith again, it seemed like the floodgate to new career opportunities opened and that’s when I learned that God was watching over this situation the entire time. My faith activated the next phase of my life’s journey. The biggest life lesson that I have learned through these experiences is that it is not about what you do or where you live, but it’s about who you are as a person. That lesson has helped me handle many difficult situations, along with my faith and intuition.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Realistic Measures & Consulting – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.

Depending on who you are talking to, they may tell you that I’m Shorty, Linelle Destiny, Mystic Alise, Dr. Alise, Professor Holland, AngelAlise, Alise. I am known for a lot of leadership and supporting roles in various industries so people from all walks of life come to me for personal and professional advice. For example, I am the creator of two digital video series, author of over 40 books, host two digital talk shows, and have a strong digital presence on many platforms providing people with knowledge in body, mind, and spirit. My clients have dubbed me as “Lady Knowledge” because I have the divine, spiritual knowledge, personal, and professional experiences to help others navigate their personal or professional situations. I am most proud of as a company how we help people improve their lives and become the best versions of themselves. Many of them are breaking generational cycles, kicking addictions, and restoring their personal power. So, it is pure joy, happiness, and gratitude to get those ‘out of the blue’ updates and to see how progress has made is priceless to us. Truly I tell you, I am deeply humbled and grateful to serve in this capacity.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
On a personal note, I am interested in doing more guest appearances in films and movies to represent intuition and help people understand it. I got a taste of acting, directing, and editing short films back in March 2019 and have a few creative projects in the works. Right now, Realistic Measures & Consulting have plans to expand and add more people to our team who are willing, ready, and able to serve others. Everything we do is done intuitively so the Spirit will let us know what our next move is! It’s safe to say though that we will be expanding so stay tuned!! LOL!
