Frank Ma

Business Manager

I followed my passion for self-development into the helping industry, met Adrian and A Path That Fits, and we immediately clicked. I took a leap of faith out of the corporate world and never looked back. I have a degree in Business Administration from the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business.

I'd always known in my heart that I was supposed to be “doing something else,” that brought me greater joy and more meaning, but I just didn’t know what that “something else” was. I decided to create a website to educate, inspire and motivate people who have any of the 140+ autoimmune conditions. We have already cultivated a global community of 7,000+ on Facebook. I love what I do and the feeling of full alignment with my passion, personality, preferences and purpose.

I’d hated my career as a salesman and needed a change but didn’t know where to start. I found ‘A Path That Fits’ online from a Google or Yelp search. Now I’m a furniture designer. I make wooden furniture from design to completion and I love going into my small garage workshop every day. My clients love me (THAT NEVER HAPPENED IN SALES). Honestly I couldn’t be happier. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Daniel.

I had just quit my job knowing I could not work in the field I had been working in for 10 years. I had some vague ideas on what I wanted to do next, but didn't know if it would work or if it was right for me. Daniel helped to clarify my next steps. The homework was eye opening and the discussions helped to solidify my plans. Now I know I should be teaching and I have all of the details set up. Perfect!

When I first contacted Adrian I could barely speak about how trapped I felt in my career, life and goals. Adrian's method was game changing. I completely flipped my life around. I left my career in Production to go back to school to become an Acupuncturist. Thank you for supporting me in becoming what I never thought possible: happy, challenged and content.

When I first met with Adrian in February '08 I was working at a job that left me feeling broken down, insecure, and confused. Our sessions were so fun and filled with powerful tools and exercises for understanding myself and creating a picture of who I want to be. The job I have now is the best I have ever had and is a reflection of so many things that are important to me. I highly recommend Adrian as a career coach.
