Young Urban Voices, sits down to chat with the Life Coach herself, for an all exclusive interview on how to live your best life and how Ms. Ciara got started in her profession.
Young Urban Voices: How did you become a Life Coach?
Ciara Elle: My career is counseling. I decided to become a life (coach) for 2 reasons. (1.) I realized some of the clients that came into my office for counseling didn’t need it, they needed guidance. (2). Reality television is what made me take the coaching courses sooner.
Young Urban Voices: How did you create “GO Get It.”? Your brand of motivating people to their highest potential.
Ciara Elle: Hmmmmm it’s kinda of a long story but in short, “Go Get It” is the title of a book I penned. As I wrote the book I realized I had so many different gifts but I hadn’t recognized It until I read my book. I realized that I offered alot of different things in which people could benefit from.
I knew I wanted to create an agency but I was torn on what to call it; my book was sitting on my sofa (for some odd reason) I remember picking it up looking at it and saying to myself “dang that’s it(the business name) “Go Get it”. I second guessed it because I thought it would sound a little ghetto but I couldn’t get my mind off that name so I ran with it.
Young Urban Voices:What advice would you give to people who say they are stuck in life and can’t achieve their goals?
Ciara Elle: I always tell people “Life is what you make it, if you want it, take it”. You just have to have a one on one with yourself , a reality check so to speak. Once you do that things will become clearer.
Young Urban Voices: As your time as a Behavior Intervention Specialist have you seen any situations that have shocked you?
Ciara Elle: LOL…… Absolutely.
Young Urban Voices: What was the story behind your book, “Drowing In A Mother’s Womb?”
Ciara Elle: Wow! Drowning in a Mothers Womb was the first book I penned. Drowning in a mothers womb is the reason I continues to write books. Drowning in a mothers womb is my story, uncut. I had youth clients that had challenges as well and they didn’t think they would ever overcome them so I decided to share my story. That book was solely for my clients but it obviously surpassed them. I went through hell growing up ultimately it made me who I am Today and I want my clients to know they could do it too!
Young Urban Voices: What prompted you to write your other two books, “B.A.I.T.” and “Go Get It.?”Ciara Elle: Books… books were written inspiringly through my clients and what I see on reality television. My books sends messages to do better to want more and how to be a woman.
Young Urban Voices: I read that you were a music manager, how did you get involved with that?
Ciara Elle: LOL…… I’m still trying to figure that out as well. Initially, I was helping a friend of the family out with some paperwork, one thing lead to the next and well here I am managing artists. This is something that definitely just fell on my lap. Nonetheless I actually like the music industry.
Young Urban Voices: What inspired you to creat the adoloscent program Build Me, Make Me, Mold Me?
Ciara Elle: My upbringing was the motivation but my clients were my inspiration.
Young Urban Voices: What has been the highlight of your career?
Ciara Elle: I don’t think I’ve crossed that bridge just yet.
Young Urban Voices: Is there anything else you would like to add?
Ciara Elle: I think we covered a lot, you had really good questions. Thanks!!!
