life and business coach Ana McRae

Hey, I’m Ana McRae


who want to build, grow, and scale thriving businesses while living fulfilling lives

For all the conversations our teachers, parents, and peers have about success, no one is actually talking about fulfillment, and what it looks like to have both.

I don’t believe you have to sacrifice your happiness on the altar of making money. In fact, I believe pursuing your purpose & building a business that fulfills you is the fastest, easiest, and most sustainable path to building wealth.

I believe you are capable of achieving the level of greatness, impact, and wealth you deeply desire, even though your brain has fears, doubts, and excuses about what you’re capable of. In fact, I know that when you get your head in the right place and intentionally master your mindset, you become unstoppable.

And to be honest, I don’t think success is all that complicated. When you make decisions in alignment with your vision and consistently take strategic action to move you forward, you cannot fail.

The #1 reason I’m a damn good Life and Business Coach is because I help you align mindset, strategy, and fulfillment to exponentially grow the results you see in your business.

From burnt out as a corporate consultant to thriving as a life and business coach

here’s my story…

It’s one you might have heard before, or even experienced yourself.

I was always the “good girl.”

I did all the right things that I was supposed to do to become successful.

I got good grades (graduated university with a 4.2GPA), I got a good paying job (at a growing consulting company), and…surprise, surprise… I was deeply unhappy.

Good grades meant I sacrificed any and all hobbies at the expense of being successful and eventually forgot who I was or what I liked to do anymore – God forbid I found myself with an hour of spare time, I would debate what I should do until the hour was up…

The “good job” might have come with a steady paycheck but it also came with a high cost – I was never around to watch my little ones grow up, I didn’t get to see the world on 2 weeks of vacation, and I dreaded the 3 hour commute required to show up to an office every day.

And while I was good at what I did, it didn’t light me up. I didn’t wake up excited about my day. Instead, I counted down the hours until 5pm and I lived for the weekends.

This was life as I knew it. I had climbed the ladder, made it to the top, and was expected to hunker down until retirement when I would be free to live the life I actually wanted.

except I couldn’t… 

I wanted much more freedom to travel & to make memories with my family

I wanted much more fulfillment from my work & to make a bigger impact

I wanted much more financial abundance without having to work more hours

Eventually I hit a breaking point where I could no longer sacrifice my happiness for a paycheck and became determined to create not just financial success, but fulfilling success ™. 

  • I took a good hard look at how I was defining success and flipped the narrative on its head to work for ME so that I could create something I actually WANTED
  • I did some deep digging on my values and got crystal clear on what I wanted my life to look like so that I could start to align the puzzle pieces
  • I got honest about my limiting beliefs and started to learn how my own brain was keeping me stuck so that I could grow beyond my fears, doubts, and excuses
  • I built a business that fulfills me on a daily basis and focused on taking strategic action and moving forward before the evidence of success existed
  • I stopped trying to do everything alone in my business and worked with a 1:1 coach to help me make progress faster

Today, I make 6+ figures a year working 20 hours a week and traveling 5 months at a time, doing work that absolutely lights me up and living a life I truly love.

Whatever your definition of success looks like,
I’m here to help you create it.

Whether that means launching a brand new business so you, too, can escape your corporate job and live the life of your dreams…

Or scaling your existing business to 6 figures, 7 figures, and beyond so that you can have the level of impact & wealth you desire without sacrificing your values or burning out in the process…

I’m here to help you build, grow, and scale a thriving business while living a fulfilling life.

Because I believe you can have both without sacrificing one for the other.


but I am the best possible life and business coach to support you in building, growing, and scaling a thriving business that supports your version of fulfillment. Here’s exactly what makes me different from anybody else out there…

01. Education & Experience

I’m always learning, stretching, and challenging myself to be better than I was yesterday.

I am certified as an Entrepreneurship & Business Coach, REBT Mindset Coach, and Life Purpose Coach – you’ll see exactly how these all tie into my business coaching framework (mindset, strategy, and fulfillment).

I also have a wealth of experience gained prior to my coaching career that makes coaching with me a completely different experience from anything that’s out there.

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Leadership and Business and am uniquely qualified to support you in both of those things. I graduated with a 4.2 GPA and so I daresay I learned a thing or two. 

But more importantly, my support isn’t based just on my own experience of building, growing, and scaling a successful & fulfilling business. I also bring a ton of expertise from outside of the coaching industry after years of training and working with hundreds of business owners as a business consultant. 

As a certified Lean Six Sigma consultant, I helped businesses drive up revenue and profitability through strategic planning and process improvement. So not only can I coach you, but I also know exactly what a well run business looks like and can support you with creating a successful and sustainable company.

I’m a master at designing efficient processes to help you get more results with less time while your business runs like a well oiled machine. And I have an eye for seeing opportunities you’re not noticing. That’s what makes me an incredible business coach.


I deeply care about your success, not about the number of calls we have.

What lights me up is helping you build, grow, and scale your dream business to support the life you truly desire. 

That’s why I am deeply involved in my clients’ businesses – supporting them at all levels with designing their growth strategy, working through their mindset blocks, processing big and small decisions, celebrating every win, navigating challenges in life outside of business.

Unlike most coaches, I am NOT just there for a 30 min chit chat each week – I am here to help you create tangible results & massive growth in your business. Helping clients make $108,000 in 4 weeks, secure their typical annual revenue in a single month, and achieve their 5 year business goal after just 8 weeks, I’m here to help you blow yourself away with what you’re really capable of.

That’s why my life and business coaching partnership isn’t based on the number of calls. You get unlimited coaching in between calls so that I can be in your corner every day. Hence I only take on a few private clients at a time – because I’m fully invested in you. 

I also want coaching to be accessible to you without having to pay $25,000 your first year in business. That’s why I structured my 1:1 container for new entrepreneurs around a revenue share model, which allows you to pay less up front and more only when your business grows. So, as you can see, it’s really not about the number of calls for me: my income quite literally depends on your business results – and that’s why my clients grow so quickly. Because we’re in it together.

03. FOCUS ON fulfilling success™ (not just financial success)

It doesn’t matter to me how f*ing rich you are, if you don’t wake up feeling happy and fulfilled in all areas of your life and business, you’re not doing it right.

I’m here to help you build the life you truly desire, through a thriving business that makes a lot of money, but money is not the end goal for us. We don’t prioritize arbitrary financial targets at the expense of your health and happiness.

We’re here to build a business that works for you, create success that aligns with your values and what you really want, and actually experience fulfillment in life and business – the money is the gravy on top.

And in order to do that, we create sustainable success strategies that are personalized to YOU – we do not use cookie cutter approaches because there is no one right away to build a business. What worked for me might not work for you, which is why having 1:1 support to help figure out your secret sauce is infinitely more valuable than another course that preaches a 10 step method that worked for somebody else.


I have clients that have been with me for 4+ years. That’s how insanely valuable my entrepreneur coaching program is. I truly value depth and connection so I aim to have deep, long lasting relationships with my clients, always. You can count on me to support you in your life and business for however long feels good for you.

Because of the breadth and depth of my expertise, I serve clients at all levels.

Some of my clients want to escape their corporate jobs and have zero entrepreneurship experience – I help them build a profitable and purpose driven online business so that they can have the freedom, fulfillment, and financial abundance they desire.

Some of my clients have been running multi million dollar businesses for years – I help them operate at peak performance, challenge and stretch themselves, and level up in wealth, impact, freedom, and fulfillment so they can step into their full potential. 

Because of this, I bring a deep understanding of the challenges at each level and I’m able to support you at every stage of your business.


I’m not your typical business coach. I’m not a one trick pony – here to teach you the latest hacks to Instagram marketing or just get you to $10K months; I’m not making stuff up based on one coaching program or the one business I launched; I’m not here to charge you $10K for a couple phone calls; I’m not preaching a cookie cutter strategy; I’m not working with only one very narrow type of client.

I’m the real deal: not only in terms of my education, my wealth of experience, or all the levels of business I can support you in, but also in terms of what I value in our relationship: your fulfillment and getting you the results you want through a deep and long lasting relationship.

If this feels like a good fit for you, let’s jump on a call so we can get to know each other and see if a coaching partnership is the right next step for you and your business.

Who I Work With

I became a life and business coach to help ambitious entrepreneurs just like you achieve their wildest life and business goals and live their dream lives.

My clients work in so many different spaces! They are

  • in the private lending industry
  • running a massage therapy franchise
  • in the economic development space
  • money coaches, business coaches, life coaches, wellness coaches
  • in pharmaceutical tech industry
  • online business managers
  • mechanical cost consultants
  • real estate developers

And that’s just a small sample of the different businesses I help my clients build, grow, and scale as a life and business coach.

Within these industries, my clients are so very different:

  • New moms who have realized they can no longer stay away from their kiddos all day & want a business that gives them more time together even though they have zero business experience
  • Multimillionaires in their 40s and 50s who have realized sacrificing their happiness for money is no longer worth it and want to start a business that supports a life they actually love
  • Successful women in their 60s who are ready to retire but not ready to be done working & want to define their “second act” so that they can have purpose to their days
  • Men & women in their 30s and 40s who realized the corporate path is not for them regardless of how much success they’ve created & how fast they’ve climbed that ladder and want a business that affords them more freedom & no glass ceiling
  • Entrepreneurs with multiple six figure businesses that want to scale to $1M and beyond but refuse to hustle & sacrifice their happiness in the process and want to do it in a way that’s fun & easeful

The point is, you or your business don’t have to fit any kind of mold for us to work together!!

The most important thing is that we share the same values and desire the same outcome: to build, grow, or scale a successful and fulfilling business that allows you to have the life you deeply desire.

If this resonates with you, and you want more freedom, fulfillment, and financial abundance, without sacrificing your happiness in the process of launching & scaling a business…
