“I am so impressed with Rhonda Kinard of A Life Ignited!  As a speaker for The Urban League of Philadelphia’s Empowerment Week 2018 event “Careers Empowered”, Rhonda was awesome! She was professional from the moment she agreed to participate in the engagement. She was detail oriented, had great preparation and follow through, arrived early and was accessible to audience members beyond her segment of the event. 

Most importantly, her presentation was flawless. Her role in the event was to get the group motivated and empowered. Rhonda was real, present, engaged with the audience and seemed to genuinely enjoy what she was doing and the coaching she was providing. I would highly recommend Rhonda for group engagements and personal coaching. Feel free to contact me personally for a more detailed reference. I can’t wait to work with Rhonda again!” ~ Debra Abrams, CPA, PHR, Urban League of Philadelphia

After I saw your video about Udemy and Camtasia, I finally published my FIRST Udemy course yesterday. 😊 

If there was a section in it for who I am indebted your name would be the first in it. I never would have done a course if I had not seen your videos. I just wanted to tell you how you have inspired me ( again!!)  Thank you and God Bless. The name of my course is “Best Freelancing Websites for IT/software industry”. Every day I see my revenue report, I thank u.

Rhonda presented at our Best Practices Conference that focused on leadership in healthcare and she did not disappoint! 

She was an engaging and dynamic speaker who captured the room and had people thinking on a personal level about how their own self-care can positively impact their presence and performance in the workplace.  Rhonda provided practical, digestible pieces of information for attendees to take home and implement immediately to begin a journey of self-care.  I would definitely recommend Rhonda for any group as her work is applicable to areas outside of healthcare as well.

Through your coaching, I was able to reduce my weight, balance my career, and be a better wife and mom. So, this article in the Philadelphia Business Journal is a reflection of the support you provided to me behind the scenes!

I am an accomplished, successful, professional woman. And there are times when even accomplished, successful, professional people need a little assistance, or a “push” to get to a place where they become an even better accomplished, successful professional.

Throughout the coaching program, Rhonda was a sounding board, a cheerleader, a mentor, teacher, and an accountability partner. We reached the goals I had set for myself during our time together.

I highly recommend Rhonda, and it’s comforting to know she is always available as a resource should there be a time again in my life when I need a little help steering the ship. ~ Helen Sanders, Assistant Director, Applications and Data Services, Temple University

[Professional Development seminar] was perhaps the most continually beneficial and motivating seminar enjoyed by our team. The graduate students were particularly impressed and appreciative of your ability to communicate difficult concepts easily as well as share a weighty and broad volume of professional experience and knowledge.

~ Rev. Dr. Malcolm T. Byrd, Retired Director, City of Philadelphia Mayor’s Office Of Faith-Based Initiatives

Juggling many responsibilities including managing a busy household with my partner and our 2 children, keeping up with my health and wellness needs as someone with Multiple Sclerosis, trying to attain personal fitness and body goals, working to grow my real estate business, and also knowing that I still needed time for myself… I knew I needed some help. Rhonda was a tremendous help to me during the time I spent with her as a life coach.

Helping me organize my goals and get better with time management were some of the primary focuses we worked on. I have seen great results during and after our term together. I was able to reach the weight goal I set for myself and right now I am the busiest that I have been thus far in my real estate business.

The best thing about Rhonda is that her service is personalized to you. Many of my challenges were things that she could relate to as well (as a wife, mother, and entrepreneur), which made the process very comfortable. 

Rhonda is a great motivator and she really does take on the role of your personal cheerleader. Although she will cheer you on, she will also light the fire under you when needed. I’m glad I was able to have the Ignited Experience!

Thank you so much, Mrs. Kinard, for the two workshops you have done.

I have already started implementing the information I learned into my daily life and now I am equipped with the necessary skills to use if I become faced with any challenges in the workplace or normal life outside of work

Every day, you have the opportunity to pursue your innermost desires and create a life that awakens your soul and feeds your spirit. You get the choice, every day, to let go of mindsets and patterns that keep you from rising. 

You get to decide for yourself what is best for you, who you want to be, and how you want to feel. You get to rewrite your narrative, design your life, and unapologetically pursue your desires. 

You get to say, “I want more,” and then go make it happen!

My mission is to empower you to create a life and business that sets your soul on fire; to equip you with the confidence, courage, and skills you need to thrive in all areas of your life, and to be unstoppable in your pursuit of next level excellence, health, and wellness – in life and business.

No more playing small. It’s time for you to step fully into all that you’ve been called to be and all that you’ve been called to do. It’s time to IGNITE!
