LIFE BY DESIGN
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Nonprofit Resources LLC
'Nonprofits are constantly trying to do more with less. When an organization can tap into the idea of accomplishing more by changing the energy level, it becomes possible. Awareness is the first step, as most groups probably don’t even stop to think about the real cost (in dollars and time) of catabolic/negative energy and mindset. When our team worked with Natalya of Life by Design, it opened our eyes to the fact that we can change our organization’s energy, by changing our own. Then, we are more available to help our clients change their energy for the better. When a nonprofit organization shifts to positive energy, there are no limits to what they can accomplish. This is true for all of us, and we will be working with Natalya again. Anyone lucky enough to work with Life by Design will be better for it!'
Yash Dubal, Entrepreneur, Owner, Director, AY&J Solicitors
'I have had a great one to one consultation that followed a group Energy Leadership workshop and individual Energy Leadership Index Assessment with Natalya Berdikyan. After this consultation, I understood myself better, found what I truly love and found a sustainable solution for a peaceful life. If interested in exploring energy for yourself/your team, then I would highly recommend her full consultation/services.'
Joseph FrostCo-Founder and CMO, YorCMO
I’d highly recommend Natalya and the Energy Leadership work she does to any executive looking to improve their leadership capabilities. I’ve already seen an improvement in myself, my team, and my company in a very short timeframe after working with Natalya.

Seneit Debese, CEO & Founder, Greta & Starks Apps
“Thank you so much for this transformational coaching journey, which became my hero journey, where you were my guidance to go through obstacles, as wise as Yoda and as persistent as Samweis. Such a very deep transformation.
I am a different person now, a different entrepreneur, a different leader for my team, and a different business person for our clients. Different in terms of success, innovation, collaboration, flow, and joy. I am much more of who I am and whom I wanted to be now. I never had such an empowering journey before. I had several coaches earlier but I never grew in coaching with you.
It is a truly exceptional and very valuable experience. Thank you so much.”

'I have worked with Natalya for only three months, but I feel her energy and commitment to my personal and professional work were most thorough and tuned-in. She listens, and she pays deep attention, she remembers everything, and she always sets out to help, at every turn.
Natalya also has deep command of her field and she can send resources, carefully curated, that speak to myriad concerns and projects. Her work is very, very intelligent.
I recommend her most highly, as a person, an entrepreneur, a past EO-er. Natalya is just extraordinary.'
David Mammano, Host of The Gonzo Experience Podcast and CEO of Gonzo Experience
“For me, Natalya is more of a guide than a coach.
There are so many things going on in my life that I often feel like I am lost in a wild jungle. I feel that Natalya takes my hand, leads me to the center of the jungle and then helps me to decide which natural paths to navigate based on my energies; and more importantly, gives me the tools to navigate them. Her approach is one of compassion, understanding and focus. Natalya helps to make me feel understood and is non-judgemental. She’s a great listener and also has helped me to develop an accountability plan.”
