Dr. Mahaffey is a coach's coach. She brings a wealth of practical business knowledge, expertise, and clarity to the overwhelming process of figuring out how to turn a vision into a business. She also brings with her a wealth of resources and connections to benefit her clients. I would recommend her to anyone who feels that they have a viable business idea for which they need objective feedback and validation, as well as anyone who is seeking an accountability partner. I'm looking forward to having her on my team for a long time.

Dr. Dionne Mahaffey was referred to me by a friend when I was in a turning point in my career. I had decided to leave a job that was stimulating, and yet, emotionally draining. I had been following one path for my entire career. I felt that there was something else out there for me that would be more fulfilling, and yet I had no idea of what that might look like.
Dionne met with me, heard my story, saw my strengths and passions and had helped me to see myself in a new light – one that pulled together many parts of my identity that I hadn't allowed to shine in the past.
She gave me the confidence to step out, and equipped me with tools and information that are helping me be successful on my new path.
I have now set out on a new journey. It’s been about 6 months without a full-time job, but I’m finding that doors are opening that give me much more freedom, more control, and more fulfillment. And as a friend said to me “you’re still eating, aren't you”? Finances haven’t been an issue – I have found that opportunities open up for me because now I have the time to follow them. And I’m feeling good about what I’m doing.
It takes courage to make a change, but having Dionne in my corner helped me to muster that courage and to move forward. She’s been invaluable.

I so loved this experience and would highly recommend Dionne to anyone. She truly is a great life coach. I appreciated the fact that she has a doctorate in psychology, but it didn't feel like therapy. She partnered with me and helped me to believe that I am in charge of my own destiny.
- Mark R, CEO, Atlanta, Georgia
Dr. Mahaffey is a persistent and passionate business person that stands firm to her conviction of making a positive mark on society. She is a natural problem solver using a unique blend of creativity and analytics. Clearly, the best I've seen! I highly recommend her to organizations seeking a team-coach, performance coach and trainer for their staff. The performance of our staff improved tremendously upon using her services.

My job of 20 years had come to an end and I was lost. I didn't want to seek new opportunities and had no idea which direction to take. Dionne helped me remove the emotional blockage that kept me from seeking new horizons. Not only did I re-frame my career pursuits, but I also leveraged a hobby and started a business.
