We had the good fortune of connecting with Alyssa Nobriga and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alyssa, what is the most important factor behind your success?
One of the biggest contributing factors to my success has simply been staying true to myself. I’ve found that when I make decisions that are in alignment for me, things always work out better and I go further than I ever could have planned on my own. Staying true to myself also means I make choices that lead me to work I enjoy more, which of course makes me more motivated. There are so many different paths to success, and the right one looks different for each of us. That’s why it’s so important to have tools that help you stay in alignment for what works for you, even if it looks totally different than someone else’s path to success.  One of my favorite tools for this is using my top values to help me stay on track in each area of my life. If something is feeling off in my career for example, I look at my top 5 values and ask myself which one isn’t in alignment in that area. The easiest way to know if something is out of alignment is if you’re feeling frustrated, stressed, or unhappy in any area of your life. For example, if you’ve been feeling unhappy at work, you can sit with your top values and see which one isn’t being fulfilled there. Let’s say you realize one of your top values is connection and you aren’t feeling connected at work – that’s a clue for what you need to adjust. You can reflect on what would make you feel connected at work, and make shifts to get back into alignment there.  The path to success may look different than you had imagined, but when you stay true to you, you’ll not only be happier but go further in the long run. 

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I went from licensed psychotherapist to business coach and love blending transformation with strategy to help clients create real lasting change. It’s not about intensity, it’s about getting out of our way and being strategic.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Go on a sunrise hike in Temescal Canyon, then go to Erewhon Market for a Reishi Cappuccino and breakfast, rent bikes and cruise around venice and santa monica, play pickleball at the Johnathan’s Club and then jump in the ocean and call me 😉
