License to Succeed: Lead Without Permission

Learn my proven methods to being a respected and valued leader, get the recognition you deserve, and live the life that you want.


License to Succeed: Lead Without Permission is the essential personal development program for the woman who wants to stand out, be acknowledged and be emphatically herself.

You feel invisible or misunderstood…. You’re working long hours…. You’ve finally hit the wall and you feel like you’ve plateaued….

You’re dreaming about a life where you have the job you’ve always wanted, the life you’ve always wanted, with the salary to match, but you’re stuck in the same-old, same-old, you feel underappreciated and you can’t seem to get out of your rut…then you are in the right place.

Dear Hidden Gem,

You are not alone.

You are generous, maybe too generous. You have time for everybody in your life, but not for yourself. You’re smart, talented, skillful, and we both know you deserve to be celebrated. It’s time to focus on stepping into your spotlight.

You have been so distracted with the day to day, dealing with all the things thrown your way, not making waves, not asking too much, and you’re feeling frustrated all the time. It’s boiling over and you are going to snap and say something out of anger. You’re complaining about your day, your coworkers, your boss, your business to anyone who will listen.

You are a diamond in the rough and it’s time to get polished and shine!

Don’t be a passenger in your journey, take the wheel and lead the way!

You want to feel confident, heard, valued and respected. You want to love your work, your team and not feel drained. You want the money you’re earning to reflect the effort you put in. You want to be OUTSTANDING!

So, let’s make this happen for you. Give yourself permission to change your life.

This is your moment to move past fears and elevate your game.

You stay in your comfort zone and this has made you invisible. You’re not making any progress being sidelined or ignored and it’s time to claim your spot as a dynamic leader.

Maybe you…

...Volunteer to pitch in and help team members only to watch them get rewarded for the work.

...Expect others to live up to your standards and get frustrated when they don’t.

...Are waiting for an opportunity to arise for development, elevation or promotion and those opportunities just aren’t coming your way.

...Are feeling lost, disengaged and generally apathetic about your work life and not sure what to do about it.

...Feel like every time you speak up and have an innovative idea, it’s shoved aside, ignored or accredited to someone else.

...Are taken for granted and never feel successful.

...Tired of being overlooked, passed over and underappreciated.


Let’s leave all that behind. It’s time to Lead Without Permission and get the happiness you deserve!

You've Got This, and I've Got You

You don’t have to go through the Sunday night anxiety, dreading having to work the next day and wasting precious weekend time worrying, analyzing, and dwelling.

You can start to feel like you’re making an impact and get excited about your contributions to your work life, home life and relationships.

We can’t do anything all by ourselves, all it takes is for you to decide you’re ready for someone to offer guidance.

It’s time to Lead Without Permission!

star banner.jpg

I have been there…

I’ve worked in situations where I offered process improvements, streamlined workflow, and improved morale, only to be passed over for promotion (not once, not twice, but three times), given more responsibility without a raise or promotion, and taken for granted.

I’ve been in the situation where I get an above average performance review, but there’s just no place for me to move forward.

I’ve done the long hours, nose to the grindstone, thinking that all this demanding work, loyalty and dedication would pay off eventually. I had to pay my dues. I had to prove myself. Instead I ended up burnt out, disengaged and stifled.

I’ve managed teams that dismissed my authority, showed disrespect, or second guessed my direction.

I felt trapped, lost, frustrated, ignored, held-back and devalued.

It wasn’t just one job: it was with big corporations, small and medium sized businesses, start-ups, and even my own business!

The problem was with me, but I didn’t see it.

These situations taught me valuable life lessons that I can now impart to you.

I wasn’t sure how to make the change I knew I needed, but after years of training, self-education, reflection and experience...


I was able to build a formula for success!

star banner.jpg

I am now living my dream and I want the same for you.

Everything I ever wanted became a reality. Now I…

...have a beautiful child, despite being told I’d be unable to have children

...Live in cottage country on the water – a dream I had always had, but couldn’t figure out how to achieve

...Make my own schedule that gives me the freedom I need to be happy

...Have a wonderful, supportive partner who elevates and celebrates me

...LOVE my job!

I know you can have all you ever wanted too...

...and my goal is to guide you to it. I believe it is there for your taking and it’s my life’s work to see you get it all!


I want to see you…

...Be a leader and take control of your future

...Make the salary you want

...Love going to work every day

...Feel surrounded by support and love

You need to realize that you can’t do this alone.

No one becomes an outstanding success alone.

Dot banner thin dark.jpg

You are probably thinking…

“This won’t work for me…”

“It’s different for me...”

“I don’t have the resources…”

“My friends and family will help me get there…”

You know better.

You know it takes an objective mentor to help you see your way through this. You know that you need to take control before this frustration and hopelessness takes over your whole life.


You don’t want to waste any more years of your life being invisible, not living your dreams, unsure about your direction.


So, I created License to Succeed: Lead Without Permission.

Here is what our graduates are saying about License to Succeed: Lead Without Permission

Beth Grixti - EFT Practitioner/Emotional Success Coach

“I am shocked at what I’ve unlocked! Risha has managed to create a 12 week program that contains all the tools needed to break through that self help barrier I had been blocked behind. License to Succeed: Lead Without Permission has given me an entirely new self-perspective. I have always been working on self improvement, I’ve read so many books, I’ve done so many exercises, nothing seemed to really get me there. But the way each week builds in Risha’s program it’s like “a-ha” after “a-ha”! The foundation that is needed before building up is why this program works, and continues to work. Yes, even in twelve short weeks!”

Kathleen Pollard - Actor

“Risha's coaching will truly guide you towards finding your best life. I never thought of myself as a leader before taking her course (License to Succeed, Lead Without Permission). But I was shocked with the self discoveries I made and how many new tools I have at my disposal to lead in my life, career, personal relationships - and feel like the confident, successful person I am. Risha's energy is second to none; she is a motivator, cheerleader, sage and friend all in one. She inspires you to succeed every step of the way. I can't recommend this work enough!!”

Olivia Neal - Entrepreneur/Business Owner

“Participating in Licence to Succeed: Lead Without Permission was the best decision I made for both myself and my business. It not only shows you what YOU are capable of but it also gives you a whole box full of tools to bring on success and help knock down all of your tried and true excuses in the process! I will be unpacking all of the information, reflection, strategies and connections I made during those 12 weeks for years to come. It is an opportunity that keeps on giving. When I signed up I felt burnt out and lacked confidence in my ability to achieve my goals but each week, Risha helped me to realize where I was holding myself back and why. My confidence ballooned throughout the course and I left knowing I am worthy of success. Thank you for your continued support & wisdom!”


Jenn Hogg - Arts Administration/Production and Stage Manager


“ I had never thought of “goal setting” as something I needed or was interested in. I had associated “goals” with “stuff”, you know, big mansion, a pool…fancy car, that kind of stuff. I never thought that it was something for personal achievement and I realize goal setting can also be for…personal milestones: Health and relationships. I didn’t think I had goals, but I definitely do now!”

This program is not for you if…

●       You are still making excuses and apologizing for yourself. If you think you’re ok in the shadows, and are happy living there, I can’t help you.

●       You are skeptical about the results of this program. I KNOW it works. I KNOW it changes lives. If you don’t have faith in me, you’re not going to be open to all I have to offer.

●       You think this is a quick fix. It’s not. It’s the beginning. It’s the groundwork. It’s your jumping off point. You will need take responsibility for implementing it.

●       You think this will make you rich. It might, but that’s not the point and I’m not going to promise you millions of dollars. I am going to promise you a life that will allow you to have millions of dollars if that is the goal you choose.


You can stay hidden, invisible to all and...

● Be stuck, plateaued in your career.

● Continue to have frustration and anger build.

● Cause undue harm to your self-esteem.

● Step into your spotlight

● Realize your worth

● Stand up for yourself

● Bring value to the table

● Speak confidently

● Gain respect from those around you

and lead your life without permission.

You have permission to be amazing!
