Aligned to your priorities. Making a meaningful impact. Reenergized professionally and personally.
— Your future self
That moment you realized. . .
It’s time to reconsider what you really want (and retake control of your career + life).
Perhaps it was when you snapped at your child for wanting to spend more time with you.
Or when you picked an argument with your spouse over something insignificant.
Maybe it was when you said yes to an over-demanding colleague (even though it means working long nights for weeks on things you don’t even want to be doing).
Or the moment you realized that you barely have the time to schedule a plumber to fix your leaky faucet.
You’re smart, savvy and driven to succeed, which means that you’ve been following expert advice. The problem is. . .
You’re beginning to realize that you can’t just time manage your way to a more balanced, fulfilling life. You’ve got to go deeper.
Heather will help you get to the next level without losing yourself in the process. The results of working with her – individually and through her mastermind – speak for themselves. . . more than a 20x return on investment.
Heather challenged me to see situations (and even my own actions) in new ways while also keeping me focused on what was most important. This enabled me to quickly organize my ideas into actionable plans and take consistent action so that I could accomplish my goals while improving both myself and my results.
Hey there. I’m Heather Moulder.
And for me, that moment was. . . December 15, 2003.
Driving home after a long day at work, oblivious to the twinkling red & white lights (that were everywhere) and irritated by The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year mockingly playing in the background, I burst into tears.
Although I’d wanted to be a lawyer since the age of ten, I was ready to give it all up just 5 years into my career.
- At the office almost every weekend.
- Averaging 90+ hour weeks.
- Getting maybe 4-5 hours of sleep per night.
- Barely holding it together.
Did you know that more than 50% of private practice lawyers report feeling stressed and/or anxious all or most of the time? Yep, that was me (and had been for over 3 years).
But because I was worried about making the wrong choice + what others would think should they find out how I felt…
[Everyone thought that I had it all.]
…I told myself that it was the same everywhere, so did nothing.
[Which – of course – was an excuse due to fear of making the wrong choice.]
But that night was different because. . .
My dear husband interrupted my evening gripe-fest to say “Heather, you have a choice.”
They say never to go to bed angry with your spouse, but apparently my brain needed that time to itself. We fought. I went to bed angry. And woke up the next morning begrudgingly thinking “Ugh, he’s right.”
It was time to retake control of my career and life.
[Worried about burning out (like I was)? Listen to this episode on the symptoms, sources and solutions for burnout to more easily determine your next best steps].
If you’re someone who agonizes over the same issue again and again, Heather will put you on a fast-track out of that overthinking mindset.
Heather was able to pull things out of me that I’d never before put into words and provided me with a framework for solving my own problems (while giving me gentle nudges to keep me on track).
Working with her empowered me to align my decisions with my priorities without feeling guilty about it. It helps that Heather lives her life this way too.

Applying the inside-out success formula enabled me to. . .
Achieve more of what I wanted (while doing a lot less).
[Turns out mindlessly trying to mirror the tactics of colleagues (who aren’t happy themselves) isn’t the best recipe for long-term success or happiness. . . Who knew?]
I made partner in an international law firm. And built my own book of business (to over $2.5MM).
While navigating through 2 pregnancies (and 2 bed rests!), the 2008 financial crisis (as a corporate finance attorney) and a battle with breast cancer. And staying true to myself.
Proud not just of my achievements but of my choices.

Be genuinely looking forward to how your future plays out, like Kate. . .
When I first started working with Heather, I had lost the passion and drive I once had for my work. I didn’t perceive that I was living a meaningful life.
Coaching with Heather taught me how to ask myself the right questions to go from problem to solution. And it gave me the confidence to effectively communicate why I was the best fit for a big promotion at work (that I got!). I’m now genuinely looking forward to how my future plays out.
Why listen to this recovering lawyer (of 18+ years) turned executive career coach?
If someone had asked me ten years ago what I’d be doing now, I’d have answered “practicing law (of course).”
But two unexpected events happened that forever changed me and my path. . .
Thing #1: The 2008 Financial Crisis.
Although I made partner that year, it was the WORST year of my professional life. I had a (small-ish) book of business that was *poof* wiped out by the financial crisis.
As a semi-introvert who doesn’t love to put herself out there, the thought of building new relationships, pivoting my practice and rebuilding from scratch was terrifying.
And so I simplified my business plan, leveraged my strengths, and followed my values (while testing softer sales techniques that felt good to me).
It worked! Within a few years, I was over $1MM in originations (and eventually built that to over $2.5MM). While serving clients who respected my time and were a joy to work with.
The lesson? Leverage your strengths + follow your values. It simplifies everything and leads to more success (while also having more fun).
Thing #2: Breast Cancer.
I was only 38 (with 2 young kids at home – ages 2 and 6). It was aggressive and the prognosis wasn’t good. Thankfully, I made it through.
This experience taught me how to LIVE fully and without regrets. And it changed how I defined one of my top values (service). . . which is what led me here.
[For more about me – and inspiration around how to transform life’s messiest moments into positive ones – listen to this episode of the Life & Law Podcast].
Was I worried (even scared)? Yep.
But after what I’d been through, no way was fear stopping me.
As my boys grow older I want them to know that they have the power to create their own happiness. And I want that for you too.
You already have what it takes – you’re driven and committed to succeeding. All you need is an expert (who’s been in your shoes and knows how to prevail) to help you uncover your answers, regain your confidence and retake control of your career and life.
And create your next level of success and impact.
One of the biggest benefits of working with Heather is her ability to get you to re-think and then re-focus on what’s most important.
I often go into our calls thinking that one thing is of most concern, and then she uncovers something deeper (that I never realized was an issue).
Be prepared to uncover things you never before realized about yourself.
Heather is perfect for working parents struggling to do it all who want tangible solutions to create a more balanced life.
When I first came to Heather, I didn’t know how to say no and my inner voice had become very unkind.
Heather quickly identified the root causes for why I felt so stressed and gave me practical strategies to overcome them. I’m now able to carve out time for myself, relax with my family and still work full-time.
She has a special talent for making people’s lives better.
One of Heather’s super skills is knowing which questions to ask that uncover the solutions you’ve been looking for. Her targeted approach will help you uncover the answers.
Heather is direct, honest and no-nonsense. If you’re tired of feeling like you’re all over the place, work with her. She’ll keep you on track (and herd you back when needed) so that you can uncover what you want and how to start making it happen.
After working with Heather, I’m able to do more of what I love to do (which doesn’t even feel like work).
When not helping attorneys have BOTH balance and success (while growing their business by $200k+ in just 1 year)–
… here are 5 things you should probably know about me —
You'll never hear me talk how you can manifest your dream life (Because It Doesn't Work That Way)
You can’t just think your way to success (if only!). It requires consistency, action and strategy (plus hard work).
What you WILL get from me: a simple, proven framework for long-term success coupled with science-backed strategies for how to make lasting changes for the better.

I have eclectic taste in tv shows
Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Modern Family and The Last Kingdom are some of my all-time fav’s.
But when you consider the common thread (strong relationships between the characters), perhaps it’s not so random since one of my core values is connection.
Easily bribed with chips, salsa and queso
And melted cheese alone isn’t proper queso (you need garlic, onions, jalapeno peppers, and tomatoes at minimum).
Queso done right (that includes ground beef + guacamole – something we Texan’s call Bob Armstrong dip) is my kryptonite.
Clients tell me that I have 2 big superpowers
First, asking questions that elicit the exact right answers they need to move forward. And second, my uncanny ability to simplify what seems incredibly complex.
Turns out that part of what made me a good lawyer translates into coaching too (who knew?).
I believe that mindset is your foundation to success (but not everything)
The truth is that you also need a strategic plan, to work hard, be consistent, learn from mistakes, and a network of people you trust that can help you along the way.
That’s why mindset work is only one piece of my inside-out success strategy (and why the other 2 prongs revolve around all the other stuff).
[For more about how this works in real life, listen to this episode of the Life & Law Podcast with guest Jim Chester (an all-time audience fav).]
Heather has a laser-focused ability to quickly get to the heart of a problem, and create a new, simple path forward.
Anyone ready for change and willing to try a new aproach will get tremendous, life-changing benefits from working with Heather.
Insightful and astute, Heather’s in the right business.
Heather has helped me become more self-aware, to re-frame my thoughts and adjust plans so that I can take the right actions to effectively reach my goals.
Everyone needs a Heather in their lives! I’d recommend her to anyone wanting strategic career advice and accountability.
The best part about coaching with Heather is that I left every session knowing that her process had enabled me to come up with my desired solutions on my own..
When I first came to Heather, I was struggling to juggle work and my role as a mom and wife. I wasn’t just stressed, but felt unmotivated to take action and like I was failing at virtually everything.
Heather helped me dig deep and uncover the thoughts behind my struggles (that I didn’t even know I had). She empowered me to be honest with myself, which was exactly what I needed to finally move forward.
