Instructor Biography

Angela R Loeb, Self-Development Consultant

A participant in one my classes once said, "Imagine if we lived in a world where even a small percentage of people started doing what they were born to do - wow what a world it would be!"

Yes! I agree!

I'm grateful and honored that my self-development programs and processes continue to serve so many all over the world. It's awesome to see that "small percentage" of engaged and excited people growing daily!

Basically, I'm really into self-development... learning it, teaching it, and supporting others who do too.

And I like results. While it's fun to talk about the esoteric side of things (and I really do love having such conversations!), it's even more fun to take action. What I do best is translate big, abstract concepts on how to make the most of ourselves and get where we want to go in life into easily understood and executable steps that work. All of my programs, as well as the books and articles I've written, reflect that passion.

After a 3-year hiatus, I'm back on Blog Talk Radio with my own show, Be Radiant Radio. Hope you'll find me there and tune in live or listen to the archived recordings at your leisure.

And please feel free to friend, follow, like, and link with me online at G+, Facebook, and Twitter.

Be well and shine on!
Angela
