About Gretchen Hydo

I’m glad you’re reading this and I am excited to meet you! My name is Gretchen Hydo and I am a professional certified life and business coach, as well as a speaker, trainer, author, and thought leader. For over 10 years, I’ve been a trusted guide and advisor, helping men and women ignite their passions and accomplish their dreams.

Prior to coaching, I owned and operated a successful boutique Public Relations agency, where I worked with a variety of corporate brands and helped put them on the map through A-list publications and mainstream media outlets. My experiences as an entrepreneur, with hands-on business experience, have made me an ideal business productivity coach. In addition, I am a married mother of two, making it easy for me to relate to busy parents juggling the demands of work and home life, while striving for successful partner communication and continued romance.

If you are reading this, you probably feel like there should be more to life. Maybe you’ve climbed the ladder only to discover that you don’t like the view from the top. Or, maybe you’re burnt out and overly busy, but not moving forward.

People come to me for all sorts of reasons. Some are dissatisfied or confused. Others are searching, wanting more, but aren’t sure how to get it. Some have a specific goal they want to optimize and activate. Regardless of their circumstances, I meet people exactly where they are and help them break through the status quo and find their path to happiness.

Coaching focuses on helping motivated people achieve their goals faster and easier than they would if they were working alone. From professionals struggling to maximize effectiveness and efficiency, to individuals dealing with times of transition, or for anyone wanting to answer the age-old question “Why am I here?” Coaching is for everyone!

If you are ready to go to any lengths to experience joy and success, let’s talk. Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life!

Gretchen Hydo Success Stories

Transformational Changes

"My time working with Gretchen has been truly transformational. I am a small business owner, and I came to Gretchen a few months ago hoping that she could help me get 'unstuck' in many aspects of my business. She provided amazing insights and gave me practical activities that I could do to change my perspective on my work and myself in general. She is an extremely positive person and truly cared about helping me reach my goals. As an added bonus, she is a seasoned PR professional and makes great recommendations about how to market yourself and your business. Work with Gretchen. You'll be amazed by how much positive change can come from even a few sessions." ~ Eve P.

Take Your Life & Business to the Next Level

"Anyone who needs a life change or who is looking to go to the next level should work with Gretchen.  She is the best.  I've been around a lot of "experts" and they don't hold a candle to her intuition, knowledge, communication and ideas.  Best money I've ever invested in my career!!!!" ~ Kathryn B.

Motivational & Professional Speaking

"We invited Gretchen to speak before a group of professional business women.  The purpose of the presentation was help women to grow in their businesses and their personal lives.  She had the attendees identify their barriers and set goals.  She was very kind, engaging and fun!  Each person learned a lot about herself and also had many laughs.  I would definitely invite Gretchen to speak for us again.  Thank you Gretchen." ~ Esther H.

Life Coaching

“Gretchen is amazingly gifted at holding space for her clients. During those tough decisions she was right there to walk with me. She is kind and patient, yet firm and always has my best interest at heart. I just finished my 9 week session with Gretchen and I went from tossing around a million business ideas to one solid plan that I feel great about. She has made a big impact on my life and I can't wait to work with her again." ~ Andrea W.

Managing Work-Life Balance

"Gretchen is absolutely amazing! I found Gretchen when I was searching on yelp for a business coach for my online business that I have eagerly been wanting to start. Once working with her I realized I needed help to find balance with life and work. She made me feel so comfortable and helped me every step of the way. I have only been working with Gretchen for only a few short weeks and I feel better than ever. She is positive and empowering, not only is she an excellent listener but she helps you reach deeper within yourself and reach you're full potential. She will bring out you're true strengths. If you are looking for a life coach, business coach, guidance, or all of the above do yourself a favor and sign up with Gretchen you will not be disappointed." ~ Candice J.
