Welcome to my INNER CIRCLE

Coaching working women and mothers to create whole-life abundance with more ease.

Do you look impressive and pretty perfect on the outside, but on the inside there are parts of your life that you know need more care and re-calibration? 

What is neglecting your mental + emotional life costing you?

I have coached thousands of high-achieving women who usually fall into these categories:


  • They have had extraordinary professional success but at the neglect of a personal life area(s) health, marriage, money etc. 
  • Their work-home life has become a pressure-cooker where kids and friends feel their consistent stress
  • They are chronically busy saying it is a “season of life” but that season never seems to end. Control to create certainty is their comfort.
  • Their soul feels something is missing… but  unconsciously, they do not allow themselves to dream
  • They are in major season of uncomfortable change that shows up in lowered self-esteem, depression or anxiety, however subtle. Like who you are today may no longer be fed by the path you started years ago…
  • They care for everyone else first and put themselves last, there goes the airplane mask analogy!

On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your most important whole-life areas–and what is the long-term cost of not addressing? 

 Ladies, we can invest so much time & money on assets, accolades & achievement–yet neglect our emotional and mental experience.

I am a fan of therapy and have done my fair share, but it can take forever and become more of a paid time to unload. This is why I have put my lifelong self-coaching tools and spiritual practices into a coaching framework called WHOLE-SELF POWER. It coaches you cognitive practices and the values we want to model and pass on to the next generation, including our children.

Days are long but years are short. You deserve a richer quality of daily life

Peace and Safety

Reduce racing thoughts and regulate triffers that send you down mental spirals


Understand your social anxiety, people pleasing, over-giving…and step into a new power rooted in worth.


Serve your talents and skills that you know are not being served at their potential


Recalibrate your time so your life blessings actually feel like abundance, not constant overwhlem.


Turn your pain into positive impact, because your story and the authenticity of wholly who you are is your power. 

When I met Claudia I was deep in the chaos of corporate life. I moved quickly and I was getting rewarded but I wasn’t happy.  I was deep in the “perform, conform, produce” cycle and frankly I was losing who I was and my happiness.  Having Claudia as a coach was a lifeline and validation that I was hitting up on the system, and it wasn’t me. She brought me to a my new life.

Ready to create your most abundance life with greater ease?

My Inner Circle is an exclusive community where I provide coaching using my proprietary Whole-Self Power framework. They are tools that have changed my life in my journey of build multi-million dollar companies that have impacted over 1 million women in aggregate.


I replace your definition of success and productivity with a vision of “wholeness” that transforms your daily work-life experience


I help name and transform your mental programming, trigger patterns in relationships and disengage the power it has had on you


I provide you a very simple daily self-coaching practice called W.A.T.R. that you meditate on daily, injecting energy for inspired action


I awaken your soul and latent passion to pursue the fullest expression of yourself. I help you see your authenticity (story, pain, talents) as your power and key to abundance

About Me

Hello, I am Claudia Chan, a 48-year old working mama who has “made it” according to society standards.

From 25-35, I co-founded America’s # 1 shopping party Shecky’s Girls Night Out.  Gen X  and older Gen Y ladies, remember those $100+ goodie bags?

From 36-46, I led the award-winning S.H.E. Summit conference convening 600+ renowned speakers with attendees from over 400 organizations. I was a first-mover in the women’s empowerment movement that our last decade has seen.

At 42, I wrote a NY Times celebrated book This Is How We Rise, then spent the next 5 years as a global keynote speaker, igniter and coach to female changemakers–obsessed with improving workplace culture.

In 20+ years of entrepreneurship, I have built multi-million dollar companies that have impacted 1MM+ people through the women and organizations my platforms have served.

A Manhattan born-and-raised girl married to a boy from Georgia, John and I have 2 miracles of life – Arya is 6 and Jackson is soon-to-be 8.

Yet until just 3 years ago, my lifetime strategy to success was unconsciously putting pressure on myself, so much so that what mattered most in my life (health, marriage, kids + community) was getting the left-over version of me.

Your family and world needs the healthiest version of you. Get my newsletter + follow me on your favorite platforms: 


It is time for women to tell our new story. Claudia is a role model herself of a woman who went after her dreams to live her own truth.

Claudia Chan is a total life transformation tornado.  She takes high-order observations and applies them in a practical way, delivering a rare combination of ruthless honesty and compassion.  At a time when humanity has been traded for tech, she has infused spirit and soul back into work.  I would not be becoming the woman I am without her coaching.

Claudia – everything about you differentiates you. You are one of the few leaders focused on wholeness. I mentioned you to one of my coaches today, I will never forget what you said to me about my work. To paraphrase, you tied my success in the supplier diversity space to success at home with my husband, my family, my employees. 

You pulled me towards the highest vision of what I wanted but could not put language to. You have been my “wizard of oz” and help me be fully me.

CEO , JKA Solutions in Supply Chain Diversity & MWBE Capacity Builder

The coaching we had has completely empowered me to make the moves I so deeply needed to make since that very day, from closing my boutique to focusing on just the perfume and candles and slowly planting all of the seeds for my future. Over the course of the last 3 years, the seeds you planted start growing, then growing rapidly and now they are flourishing. I remember so many things about that day, and I revisit our conversation very often as I remind myself to stay focused and clear on my path.
