  • “Her immense experience as a women’s life coach shines through. Readers will enjoy how intelligently practical yet empathic it is. This is where the value of the book truly lies: It delivers the essence of Sam and that transformational magic she brings into her work with her clients and teams.”
    —Lin Tan, Master Certified Coach, International Coach Federation Director of Training, Collective Change Institute President (2020), ICF Singapore Chapter

    “What makes this volume carry weight are the real stories that inspired each chapter. I especially enjoy the questions which Sam has thoughtfully curated at the end of each chapter. They may look simple, but they could be just what is needed to give us that much needed reflective pause. Finding Joy in Transitions is definitely not a book to be finished in one reading.”
    —Gloria Arlini, Deputy Director (Strategy & Policy), National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre

    “As a coach, Sam has helped me work through sticky decision points in my entrepreneurial journey so I could view them through a new lens. I am so glad that she has written this book which will help us reframe transitions from difficult challenges to joyful opportunities in a thoughtful, accessible and practical manner. I can definitely see myself pulling this book out over the years when changes happen and I need to look for a new perspective!”
    —Toni Chan, Founder and Creative Director, August Society

    “Sam has the unique ability to be caring while holding the complexity of transitions from both a psychological and practical perspective in order to offer pragmatic, solutions-oriented support. This book is an extension of her knowledge, experience and words of wisdom—a must-read for anyone going through their own transition.”
    —Saba Hasanie, Managing Director, OSC Leadership Performance

    “Sam has helped me navigate difficult decisions in my professional and personal life. I have benefited from her deep empathy and she has helped me find the courage to handle tough conversations and have the clarity to move forward. As a reader, this book does exactly that.”
    —Yi Ning Lim, marketing professional 

    “I thoroughly enjoyed reading Finding Joy in Transitions. What struck me most was the way Sam was able to capture so much experiential wisdom on the different transition scenarios and put them together in such a delightful and effortless read. Anyone could benefit from this book as we all go through transitions in some stages of life and having this book will allow us to make sense of the anxieties associated with the changes and take inspired action to move forward with ease.“
    —Suman Balani, PCC Managing Director, Flourish Consulting Pte Ltd

    Finding Joy in Transitions is a wonderful resource for the many stages of transition and change that we find ourselves experiencing in life. I love that the chapters can easily be read in any order. The Reflection for Clarity questions at the end of each chapter make it especially practical and useful. If you find yourself stuck on how to move through a change in your life, I highly recommend this book.”
    —Susan Sadler, PCC Founder, Sadler Communications LLC
