from Chef, Austin Texas on 01 May 2016
About a year ago, I began considering whether I should leave my career in higher education research for something more in line with my personal passion for health and wellness. Leaving a job is often scary, but leaving a career was a whole new experience for me and one that required a lot of careful consideration. During that time, I learned about Joseph’s coaching services.
He helped me identify and think through the steps necessary to make the decision that was right for me. This was no easy process, but his patience and insight were invaluable in getting me to where I am today– now embarking on a career shift that I know will bring personal fulfillment, the challenges I need to feel productive and useful, and a level of financial support complimentary to my lifestyle.

Joseph’s highly professional, yet personable approach to career coaching will not only help you achieve short term results, but help you achieve bigger picture goals.
From the outset, Joseph helped me identify what I needed and where I needed to be heading, and he gave me practical tips that I could apply directly in my role. As a result of working with Joseph, I have become more assertive in my role, the people who report directly to me are thriving and I am being entrusted to make business critical decisions. I would highly recommend working with Joseph.

Without Joseph, I might have given up before I even got started. Instead, my business is growing and expanding. I benefit tremendously from the way Joseph pulls on all of his expertise: professional transformation, entrepreneurship and branding. One of the most valuable outcomes of Joseph’s coaching is that our work together has transformed my perspective from one based in the limited culture of corporate employment to one that supports acting on the full range of possibilities for success. The other very valuable outcome is that Joe has helped me to gain tremendous confidence that my authentic voice and what I have to offer is valuable to my customers. Whenever irrational fear and limiting beliefs start to take over, Joseph’s coaching techniques pull me back on track to staying true to my vision and brand. That confidence has made all the difference.
from Lawyer, Washington DC on 26 Jan 2016
Joseph has bridged the gap between my harboring thoughts of a business idea for over 5 years and finally implementing it with a passion. I had always regarded myself as accomplished and motivated, having achieved my career goals as a lawyer, and I didn’t know that I would benefit from coaching. Yet, Joseph’s comprehensive knowledge of business, branding and overall career advice has been the package of priceless expertise that I needed to develop an on-line business I’ve also wanted to create for many years. His clear, ongoing advice and exceptional generosity with his time has provided me with the concrete steps and necessary resources to turn a lingering business goal into a fulfilling reality.

Joseph has been instrumental in me securing my new job and returning to the workplace after an extended maternity leave. He enabled me to overcome my loss of confidence, coached me to perform at interviews, and provided invaluable guidance on CV writing. I secured a new job very quickly helped by his coaching, and believe 100% that it would not have been as fast and ‘smooth’ without his coaching and ongoing support. He has not only coached me on my original coaching objectives (ie. CV guidance/interview performance) but also on more personal aspects regarding life changes which has come very supportive too.

I came across an article Joseph Liu wrote online and felt inclined to e-mail him. Joseph promptly e-mailed back and was willing to speak with me and help me out during this time of transition of my life. After completing my Master’s degree, I was at a crossroads. I was unsure of what I wanted to do or where I wanted to be. Through my conversations with Joseph, he helped me realize my true goals. He gave me the tools and confidence to create clear path to make these goals become a reality. He was extremely supportive and encouraging in this time of change in my life. I am extremely grateful for the invaluable advice he gave me to help ensure my successful career and future. Thank you, Joseph. I look forward to many other instrumental sessions.
from Radiologist in Boston on 16 Jan 2015
Before meeting Joseph, I was in the midst of an existential life crisis. I felt as though I had been blindly following a pre-set career path and jumping through hoops without considering what I really wanted to do with my life. I found myself at an impasse – unable to get organized, unsure of how to go back to square one, and uncertain of my life’s purpose. Over the next several months, with Joseph’s coaching, I began the complex process of analyzing myself and the different facets of what I would find fulfilling from my life’s work. He served as an impartial sounding board and provided the encouragement I needed during that transitional time to put together my own action plan and investigate my options in a way that made sense to me. Ultimately, when I made my decision, it was with supreme confidence and direction that I began working towards my career goals. Joseph is a terrific listener, practical networker, and an encouraging but objective advocate. With his guidance, I explored the full range of possibilities and ultimately embraced my life’s authentic trajectory. He receives my highest recommendation.
