I am excited to introduce myself to you. My name is Liora Sponko and I am a Mindset and Empowerment Coach for visionaries, entrepreneurs, and creative professionals who want to transform their dreams into a profitable careers and real-life projects.
I have been a coach for several years and worked with creatives and entrepreneurs for over decade. In addition to coaching, speaking and leading workshops, I work for the state arts agency in Oregon, helping build a thriving arts communities across the state. Creativity is essential to being human and participating in the arts impacts us on a profound level.
My methodology: The internal work produces the external results. It’s easy to blame external circumstances or other people for what’s wrong in our lives. But the power is looking within, at our fears and blocks. When we do that, we create space to re-envision another way of living life.
At the core of this work is vulnerability, self-love, and self-expression. So many of us are hiding. We are hiding from our dreams. We are hiding from people. We are hiding from what we want in our lives. We have so much judgement about ourselves– I am not good enough, I am not creative enough, I can’t really have what I want. Sound familiar? I know this because I hear this time and time again from my clients, and I have had these same stories as well.
My story: I used to hide from people and my dreams because I was afraid of being judged. I was so insecure that I didn’t feel comfortable around people. I didn’t use social media because I didn’t want to be seen. I didn’t go after my dreams because I was afraid I would fail. I dealt with anxiety and depression and was constrained from living the life I truly wanted.
The more I did the internal work and learned to love myself, the more free I became. That freedom inspired me to do things that I never thought I would do. I started coaching, speaking, leading workshops. I even gave my first keynote speech on self-love! I now share my life vulnerably with people in my life and on social media– read my blog to hear some of my struggles and breakthroughs.
I am now the happiest I’ve ever been. This energy has me want to have it all– help my clients as a coach/speaker, be successful at my job at the state, enjoy a robust self-love practice (meditation, yoga, gratitude, journaling, working out), actively enjoy the outdoors through kayaking and hiking, and have meaningful, loving relationships.
Certifications and influences: I am deeply passionate about personal development work. I completed coaching certification with Coaching Training Alliance and also was a coach with Landmark Worldwide. I have training in conflict resolution and communication, and am a Reiki Master. I listen to a personal growth podcasts and read inspiring books everyday. My influences include Gabrielle Bernstein, Lori Harder, Kute Blackson, Brendon Burchard, Rachel Hollis, Marianne Williamson, and Dr. Joe Dispenza.
