Founder / Empowerment Coach
With years of experience in the Direct Sales Industry, Direct Connect Coaching founder, Fi Mazanke, felt an urging to move in a different direction in her career. Based on the premise, “leap and the net will follow,” Fi decided to leave her secure job of 12 years with no set plan in place. Just 2 weeks later, the opportunity to enroll in a Leadership Coaching Certification Program presented itself and Fi jumped on the opportunity. It was a valuable decision to become certified, because coaching is her life’s passion. She completed the first of four coaching certifications and began work in her Direct Sales Company and introduced the coaching concept to the sales team. The coaching program was new at the time, and the agreement was for a one year experimental program to evaluate the program’s benefits. The results of the coaching program were so powerful in both sales and recruiting, that coaching went from experimental to a national program in one year.
After being on board for a year and a half, Fi decided that it was time to diversify her client base and started Direct Connect Coaching, successfully working with children, teens and adults on an individual basis and expanded to group work to bring the message of empowerment forward. Fi is on the cutting edge of getting clients to explore their strengths and passions while removing blocks to allow these gifts to be at the forefront of their lives both at home and at work.
Several years ago, Fi was asked by two different couples to officiate their weddings. As a result, Fi became an Ordained Minister in 2008. She designs original wedding ceremonies for couples, highlighting their deep connection in love, and creates an atmosphere of a very personalized wedding experience.
