The Intersection of Personal and Professional Life
Hana elaborates on her coaching philosophy, emphasizing that she coaches the “whole person” and doesn’t separate who individuals are at home and at work. She discusses how she partners with clients to evoke self-awareness and inspire them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
“I tend to coach on the professional side, knowing that I coach the whole person. I can’t separate who you are at home and who you are at work, and there’s a lot of times where that comes into the conversation.”
Overcoming Fear of Perception
She shares an interesting question that ties ideally to the fear of how others perceive us and the importance of overcoming that fear.
“Somebody asked me a question the other day. It was part of a game. It was like, would you rather watch a movie that was like a glamorized version of yourself with high-quality actors, a multimillion-dollar film, versus a raw documentary of how people actually see you.”

“This is going so great, though. I started to be a little self-aware. I got a little long on my first question, but that’s okay.” – Taylor and Hana
