New Style of Relationship Coaching for the Modern Women

New Style of Relationship Coaching for the Modern Women

As Relationship Coaches, we help women – REdesign their marriage – REcover during/after divorce – REbalance their business.  Meet Yvette Valdenegro & Geovanna Burgess White, coaches and co-founders at YG Collaborations.

The most sought coaching requested are the women who want to REdesign their personal relationships. This appeal reaches women looking to have a healthy dating life to those who have been married for years and want to spark their marriages again. Our clients may also be thinking, drowning, or REcovering from divorce. They are career-driven or business owners who need to REbalance their boundaries, time management, or thoughts toward their work life. We are trained in specific tools to create action plans and frameworks to build successful relationships no matter the stage of life, age, religion, background, culture, or location. We concentrate on the present and the future, helping you bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

Here is some clarity as to why we capitalize the R & E in REdesign, REcovery, and REbalance. According to Oxford Languages and Google, the prefix ‘RE’ means once more, afresh; anew. The mere definition already opens up the window of possibilities. Imagine looking out that window, in the future, with the relationships that currently leave you feeling frustrated and angry. Is it possible to look at the future with your closest relationships in a positive light? What if you could not only look in the future but also imagine them afresh and anew? You CAN look at your relationships afresh and anew. No matter the state. We coach our clients through a framework grounded in the meaning of RE. RE is emphasized with capital letters to remind us that we will practice this repeatedly with an intense force originating within ourselves.  

Our stories began at a risk point, evolved based on risk, and have positively developed because of risk. Risk to us would be the absolute uncertainty of what will and can happen in the future. Risk can mean financial, emotional, and any form of loss or setback you know ahead of time that most people would say will occur.

We both set our sights on accomplishing the ‘musts & shoulds’ in life, school, marriage, career, and having children. Maybe not precisely or in the same timeframe, but as women, wives, and moms, we were dedicated to following strong societal values, standards, and rules surrounding the norm of early 21st-century womanhood. Although being young women brought us the joy of newness every step of the way, we both knew there was more to be experienced. Each of us had a different journey. Geovanna dedicated herself to a corporate career and eventually ventured out on her own with a divorce, remarriage, and starting her own business. Yvette dedicated herself to raising her children, volunteering, working, going through a divorce, and starting her own company. Our business partnership intersected over time. We began intertwining our passions to help young couples during their early engagement through their wedding nuptials. We risked working and bringing our businesses together at the height of the pandemic. We were willing to risk keeping our businesses open, reducing rates and giving away free services to see others flourish. We don’t take that lightly, nor with an arrogant attitude. We see how over time, risking our businesses financially during a time when others closed their doors so seems foolish to others. This fighting and take-charge spirit kept our worlds spinning and moving forward. There were many changes, developments, and strategies. Still, our willingness to take risks led us to where we are today over four years.

 We eventually sold our two individual businesses and put our time, effort, and energy into what we do best. We Help women build intimacy on all levels, revolving around the most crucial relationship topics communication, finances & sex. We use a life-altering framework to coach and teach our clients how to REdesign, Recover & REbalance their midst and goals toward their relationships for the right RESULTS.

Taking the risk to help women, marriages, and families at large seemed the only way for us to step forward. It has taken focus, determination, and the willingness to want and give more. Our choices are not risks but a motivated mindset to not settle for less. We chose to be persistent and take daily steps toward our goal of establishing a NEW overall framework to help women in our relationship coaching practice.

Everything we do is on the cutting edge. We like to disrupt former, more traditional mindsets created years ago and give them a modern lift into the mid- 21st century. 

We are known for being straightforward yet have a compassionate approach to helping women REdesign, REcover, and REbalance the relationships they desire. A combined 20 years of coaching experience positions us to guide women to the marriage they always wanted but didn’t know they could create.  

The space for coaches is increasing at an all-time high. 99% of individuals and companies who hire a coach are “satisfied or very satisfied,” and 96% say they would repeat the process. (ICF Global Coaching Client Study). 80% of coaching clients say they improved their self-esteem or self-confidence thanks to coaching. (2009 ICF Global Coaching Study)

Being the best version of yourself will change the relationships around you for the better. Why not grow and get the results you want at a quicker rate? We offer a 6-month program and one-on-one sessions to fit every need. If you aren’t sure where to begin our connection call is the place to start for clarity. Our weekly podcast, Redesigning Your Relationships, welcomes guests, teaching, and training while discussing topics surrounding relationships with a tangible, current, and forward approach each week. We dive deep and do not shy away from keeping the subject of your interpersonal relationships real.

Our effective strategy for growing our clientele has always been to give. Giving and the expression for giving have been and will continue to be in ways some may not consider.  

Our partnership began years ago in our previous businesses. We desired to help a list of couples who had lost their wedding venue and the deposits they paid toward their weddings. We both came together to strategize, find new venues for the couples, and see who else could help the cause. After witnessing the lack of generosity in helping these couples, we became thankful for each other’s attitude toward giving. We were giving back to others even when there was no monetary value. Then during the pandemic, our former businesses suffered just like everyone else. Still, we managed to stay afloat by giving away services to those in need. We eventually gave more than $55,000 in services. Ironically our businesses grew in reputation and word of mouth through the process, leading to natural organic growth. We have brought this same desire to help others with our partnership at YGC Relationship Coaching. Through volunteering in multiple organizations in our community, we give our time our money to these same groups or other organizations in need. For example, we started a local Ignite Her Society Houston Chapter to provide women with a networking group that focused not on their business. However, it benefits their businesses but centers around the individual woman leading the company. 

When meeting someone new, going to these organizations, our coaching calls, our podcast, and everything we do, we bring value to everyone around us. Giving value to others can be of your time and money, but we often prefer to guide someone in need a listening ear, encouragement, hope, and the reassurance that even in the loneliness of moments, women who want change in their lives have somewhere to turn. Offering a platform for women to feel their worth is the starting point in all we do.  

Here are a few crucial thoughts we want to mention. We understand the work-life balance between the hours, mental & emotional energy, and physical exhaustion is one of the most challenging obstacles to overcome as a business owner. The drive to succeed can negatively outweigh the need to manage your personal life. Maintaining balance, a manageable schedule, and the emotional roller coaster of the ebbs and flows of business is a must. 

We know the value of being the best version of yourself is priceless. We can’t measure or place a monetary value on growth, change, and the ability to REdesign your life. We can say your value as the best version of yourself compared to the deficit of failed relationships, divorce, and broken families are devastating. You are worth the time to become the best version of yourself. You are worth being the author of your own story and planning out the life you deserve to avoid or overcome any more devastation.

As your coaches, we know you can achieve your goals and vision for your life NOW! We are here to help you REdesign, REcover, & REbalance your mindset and goals toward your relationship for the right results. Our mission is to help you put your dreams into action and get big results. 

Wherever you are in your relationship, focusing on yourself and becoming the best version of yourself will be one of the best decisions you will ever make. If you are WILLING, then we are here to help you.
