River City Six – Angie Petersen-Green
Meet Angie Petersen-Green, owner of Vision Maps with Angie (www.visionmapswithangie.com).
Tell us a little about your business.
Vision Maps with Angie is a business in which I help women and men (a.k.a. visionaries) find their purpose through the process of a series of questions, which I call my “dream sheet.” After these questions are answered, I provide them with resources for attributes they are lacking (time management, self-love, organization, etc.). Once that is established, I go through a values assessment, clarity quiz, and guided meditation with the client(s). With proper guidance, we can prepare your vision board with the necessary supplies that are provided in the cost of the workshop (poster board, magazines, glue, scissors, etc.). During the coaching session, there is meditative music playing and aromatherapy for relaxation.
How did you get started in the business?
After going through my own self-discovery journey over an 18-month span, I decided to make an impact on others. Believe me though, I’m still growing! During my time of transformation, I was seeing three different coaches and one in particular who happened to be a coach I found online from Idaho. She had asked me, “What is one thing you’d like to do?” That’s when the vision board was born. It’s been a very therapeutic career for me.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally?
Explaining to people the value of what I do. Some people don’t want to invest time and/or money, as according to them there is no relevance in doing a vision board workshop, but the people who have know how beneficial it is.
What has been your most important achievement professionally?
The numerous people who’ve been through my workshop and the testimonials they’ve given that have spoken volumes to my continued passion to help change people’s lives.
Tell us a little about your family.
I grew up on a farm outside of Exeter, NE with my parents and younger brother. I’m happily married, with a 15-year-old daughter and two stepkids.
What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life?
People change for two reasons: Pain or pleasure. My biggest turning point happened when my father passed away in 2015.
What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know?
I did improvisation at The Backline.
Who inspires you?
I don’t necessarily have a certain person in mind. I truly feel there are inspiring people around every corner if we just look for them. The people who inspire me most are those who have a high degree of integrity, empathy for mankind, and those who follow through on their promises.
What is your favorite quote or the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
