Trudi Sigfusson {Coach OF THE WEEK}


This is Trudi. She is a magical human being that radiates warmth and kindness.

Which is something that makes Trudi very special. Because here’s the thing…

As most of us go through life, we encounter many reasons for us to close down and protect our hearts. Breakups, betrayals, illness, death, divorces, bankruptcies and a million other pains. And if we allow it, life can really harden us.

So when I run into humans like Trudi, who have been around the block and still feel radically open, I can’t help but marvel.

I know that it takes courage to stay open and soften with every passing year. And it takes tremendous courage to let your child-self roam free and stay wild. Yet when I’m around Trudi, everything feels possible. I can see and feel her glowing when we’re in the same room.

Trudi my friend, I honour and celebrate you.


  1. Describe your coaching approach in 2-3 sentences

    Through curious questions and engaging conversation I lead my clients on a journey of discovery and activation. We shine the light on your unique gifts and how you can bring them forth into the world, to live the life you’ve always known was possible!

  2. What's one thing about you that would surprise people if they knew?

    My story is a “rags to riches” one.... and when I was 4 years old, a spirit came to me and re-assured me that my life would not always be this way. Even at the tender age of four, I knew there had to be MORE!

  3. When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be?

    A flight attendant

  4. How would your mom/dad describe what you do for a living (their words, NOT yours)

    Oh this is a funny one—my mom would say that I have a lot of people that are always calling me or buzzing me on my phone! She would also say that I fly places to talk to people! As she asks, “Where are you going now?”

  5. When do you feel most alive?

    When I am sliding across my hardwood floor “jamming out” to my favourite tunes!

  6. Who is your favourite type of person to coach?

    My favourite person to coach has an inner knowing that their life can be MORE! They are open to new concepts and possibilities!

  7. Name one book that changed your life:

    Becoming Supernatural by Dr. Joe Dispenza
