Instructor Biography

Dr. Allana Da Graca, Development Expert & Life Coach

Hello There,

Thanks for stopping by. Many individuals desire to reach personal goals but may not reach their intended plan because of the daily rigor of life. An individual may desire to become an entrepreneur, be in a relationship, leave past hurts, and feel more life satisfaction, but obstacles of poor self-talk, bad memories, failed dreams and more can stop someone from having the hope needed reach new milestones. 

All of my self-help courses have been designed as an interactive resource that individuals and professionals can learn from time and time again.  

The best way to enjoy these self-paced courses is to be as authentic with your personal goals as possible.
