I am Cristina Cardoso, Mindset Coach, Entrepreneur, and Founder of Monarch International Institute for Personal Development, LLC.
I live in the beautiful city of Santa Barbara, California. I love sports, vegan food as much as I love traveling, I am a proud mother of two amazing humans and a grandmother of a handsome little boy.
My passion and my mission for coaching developed while working for the Santa Barbara School District for 16 plus years.
In 2013 I worked in a Junior High School, as an Administrator Assistant, and working around teens is where my coaching passion was born.
Seeing and hearing the teens struggle with self-esteem issues, breakups, self-harming, and feeling misheard and misunderstood, reminded me of my teen years, feeling invisible and misunderstood as well, it made me realize that I had a mission to do, I needed to be of support for these girls who were suffering and finding other outlets to cope with their feelings and “dramas” as many adults would call it. I asked the Administrator for permission to host an afters-school girls support group, as volunteer work, she accepted, and I become the mentor/coach of a group of 20 girls.
My mission was to become the mediator and advocate between the girls, their parents, and society, closing the gaps of miscommunication. The teens learned how to effectively communicate their feelings, their needs, and wants, but most importantly “how to love and value themselves” learning and growing with them become my passion and my life calling, and the Idea of MIID, LLC was born.
I am a confident coach who is here to help you get out of your comfort zone, old patterns, behaviors, and the life that you have been stuck in for decades. You know the ones, …where you feel exhausted, overwhelmed, and like you are always moving but never getting anywhere, and you keep using the same behaviors and patterns, but they are not producing results.
As a certified executive coach, life coach, and speaker and after working with over 300 people and delivering over 200 coaching sessions in the last 3 years, I am confident that my expertise, my energetic, personable, and practical approach will elevate your mindset and deliver amazing results that you won’t be able to stop talking about.
Let’s work together to create the healthy, abundant life that you always wanted but somehow lost track of.
