Co-Founder & Certified Life Coach
Passionate About Inspiring Others
At a crossroads, Carolyn’s future seemed bleak and directionless. Everything felt like a failure or a dead end, from her job to her relationships, her stagnant finances to her incomplete goals and projects. Feeling purposeless and out of control, Carolyn was stuck, hopeless, and depressed. Seeking answers, she soon discovered what would transform her life completely.
Attending Rhonda Britten’s Fearless Living Workshop in September of 2019, Carolyn heard her calling. By January of 2021, she was a Certified Fearless Living Coach. Fearless Living not only helped her reveal her path it enabled her to embody skills and concepts in empowering her to guide others to reveal their own unique purpose and best version of themselves. In living more authentically, her relationships and her communication improved, her job was a means to an end, rather than an end in itself, and her support community expanded. Carolyn now chooses her life by making it happen, instead of letting it happen to her.
She says “There is no greater honor or pleasure than to support another human in realizing their own power, passion, and purpose.“
A Georgetown University graduate, with a Bachelor’s of Science in Foreign Service, Carolyn spent her professional career, performing serial gigs in Theatre, Marketing, Office Administration, Human Resources, Retail and Non-Profit Management, and Higher Education. The knowledge and skills she amassed from her various roles, have equipped her with vast experiences that contribute to her coaching abilities and business sense.
A Chicago native, working coach, and evolving small business owner, Carolyn resides in the Wicker Park/Bucktown neighborhoods, with her significant other, Shamus, and their two unique cat personalities, Rupert and Cornelius.

“There is no greater honor or pleasure than to support another human in realizing their own power, passion, and purpose.“ Carolyn Nivling
“I've worked with Carolyn for about four months. Week after week she had patiently helped me to move from the wheel of fear to the wheel of freedom. She's very genuine and I really felt how much she cares for my growth, but more so my inner growth. It's been such a great joy to have her as a coach and I highly recommend her! She's officially my favorite coach️.”

“Carolyn is much more than a coach, she's able to dive into layers of relatability that ease you into a rolling conversation. Along this path, exploring yourself, she starts to draw out your mechanisms for holding back. With compassion and purpose, together, we took steps towards ideas and with her enthusiasm, I forgot my fears and started to execute goals. Only later, sitting in absolute awe, I realized the dramatic swift in my power she guided me to accomplish in a short period of time.”
S. Kirmani, Project Manager, Virginia
