Angie Mattson Stegall is a Wayfinder (Business and Life Coach) and an award-winning author of five books.
Wayfinding is the term Angie uses to describe the work she does with people – usually business owners and professionals. Wayfinding is about inquiry, impact, and clarity.
People find me when they are feeling overwhelmed and burned out by their very successful (yet incredibly frustrating) businesses and lives. They are feeling chaotic, but want order. I help them achieve that.
These high-performing entrepreneurs and executives are seeking a partner – someone who will listen without judgement, ask the hard questions without judgement, and someone who can speak plainly, honestly and with compassion to help them find their way. I’ve been in business for 17 years, have written five books, and worked with hundreds of business owners and executives.
My clients often feel incredible relief after one session and see the major changes they were hoping for in 90 days or less. I can “see” where someone is stuck and excel at helping them unpack their confusion, move through the pain of indecision, and find the clarity they want to take aligned action with confidence and joy. From chaos to order, naturally.
Worth noting: working with me spans the personal and the professional, because both matter: you are a human BEING first and a person DOING work second.
My clients work with me repeatedly for years (some since 2011). They confess, “Angie, it’s lonely at the top. It takes courage to run a business and having you as a partner and guide to walk beside me on this journey makes a huge difference.”
Our time together will focus on three areas: (1) Why are you doing this work? (mission/vision/values/culture-type questions); (2) What’s your day-to-day look like? (time management, productivity, tools); and (3) Who are you BEING? (leadership, communication, and mindset in business AND life).
Angie Mattson Stegall earned a BA in Organizational Communications from Queens University of Charlotte. She’s a Martha Beck Certified Wayfinder Life Coach and is in training to become a Certified Forest Therapy Guide with the Association of Forest and Nature Therapy Guides (AFNT) and already incorporates nature-based coaching into her work with clients.
In business since 2003, Angie shares her extensive business experience through seminars, teaching, and speaking (classes, breakouts, and keynotes). She’s spoken to groups at Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC, MassMutual Insurance, the Western Women’s Business Center’s Annual Conference, Duke Energy, FemCity, Sisters United, and eWomen. She’s worked with executives and their teams at Duke Energy, MassMutual, Doosan, Kuebler Inc., and Corning as well as with dozens of small business owners and their teams.
As a five time published author, Angie won the 2014 Women’s Business Award (author category) at the fifth annual Women’s Business Conference and was a Founding Member of the Brevard Authors Guild. She also received the coveted “5 Star Award” from in the 2016 Authors Talk About It independent book awards for her fourth book, Make Some Room: Powerful Life Lessons Inspired by an Epic 16 day Colorado River Rafting Trip through Grand Canyon.
Angie and her husband live to travel and love immersive experiences, like taking a private 16-day Colorado River rafting trip through Grand Canyon and spending 13 days on a self-supported rafting adventure covering all 149 miles of the French Broad River through North Carolina and into Tennessee.
In 2016 they completed a 6,000 mile road trip to see Glacier, Yellowstone, and the Badlands National Parks and Devil’s Tower National Monument.
Between 2017 and 2019, they traveled over 20,000 miles back and forth across the country in their Class A motorhome, visiting places like the Rocky Mountains, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon NP, Capitol Reef National Monument, the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska, Liard Hot Springs in British Columbia, Joshua Tree National Park, The Petrified Forest National Park, and the Civil Rights Museum in Birmingham, Alabama. They lived for several months in the middle of a national forest in Alaska and on Bureau of Land Management Land in Escalante, Utah.
Together, they sincerely believe taking time away from their businesses regularly keeps them more engaged in life and in their work.

“Angie absolutely was a game-changer. She took what I was already doing and helped me transform them into activities that were more effective. I bought myself a bunch of time, which is a finite resource. Working with Angie was life and business changing.” Frank Schwartz, LEC Media, NC
“Angie has an uncanny ability to discern what it most important to advancing your value proposition…In short, Angie quickly diagnosed the underlying issues and helped me find the courage (and the time!) to make some meaningful changes and held me accountable so I could start doing the work that truly feeds my soul.” Chris McLeod, Chapel Hill, NC
