CHANDLER BIO

Richard Chandler, MA, LPC

My coaching and consulting practice is built upon years of experience in helping business owners improve their businesses and their personal lives by reallocating their time from business operations to strategy and personal time. Because your business and personal life might be quite intertwined, I have both the business and psychological counseling background to be of help to you with work or personal challenges. In addition to business consulting and coaching, I help people become more successful in the world of work through career upgrading and reinvention, expansions into self-employment and in piloting new enterprises.

I grew up in a family of self employment and have been self employed for decades. This allows me to more easily connect with the unique problems that business people have. I have also done a good deal of career counseling and consulting with clients endeavoring to discover a new career.
