Angie Mattson Stegall is an Executive Wayfinder (Business and Life Coach) and an award-winning author of five books.
My “official bio” is at the end of this page.
You might have arrived here because you are feeling overwhelmed and/or totally burned out by your very successful (yet incredibly frustrating) business and/or life. You are feeling “meh” or chaotic or some confusing combination of the two.
On the outside, it looks like you are killing it – accolades and all the other trappings of success. As people have said to me in the past, “You present well.”
Yet, in reality, you feel completely trapped by your success…because you are miserable inside.
The Wayfinding Journey my clients and I embark on slows them down. Calms them down. The Journey brings clients from a point of deep frustration and unhappiness all the way through to peace, freedom, and clarity.
Clients and I walk in the land of POSSIBILITY: you begin seeing and believing that what you want IS possible.
And what you might want is more TIME and more FREEDOM and more inner PEACE, while still experiencing success and satisfaction in your professional endeavors.
My clients learn to love themselves by creating a life based on their VALUES rather (versus the “no pain no gain” sweat, hustle, suffer method most people try using to achieve their goals).
Through our Wayfinding together, my clients report that they feel healed and healthy and are living their lives with ease.
About eight years ago, my business looked great. I was writing books and winning awards. I was speaking professionally and had plenty of clients.
But, I was desperately trying to ignore a lot of warning signs. Chronic exhaustion. A deep unhappiness with the actual work I was doing. Unexplained weight-gain. Deep and lingering frustration about where I was living.
I made some surface changes and even some moderately significant ones. But things in my life and business were still broken.
And that tiny whisper of a voice just kept insisting, “There’s more for you in this world.”
I took myself on my own Wayfinding Journey to find out who I really was deep down. To discover what I really wanted in life and was meant to do in business.
My journey was five years of turmoil. My husband and I blew up our businesses and our lives. It cost us all of our money. But at the end of the journey, I was crystal clear on my values, I was honest about what I wanted and needed in life, and I’m doing the best work with my clients (and, happily, my husband was experiencing the same results).
Now, I feel fulfilled, peaceful (or “happy for no reason” as I like to say), and am experiencing professional success like never before. This deep satisfaction rings like a bell deep in my body.
I hope you’ll consider a Wayfinding Journey with me so you don’t have to endure five or ten years of floundering for answers. Let me walk the path with you as a guide, trusted advisor, and someone who can speak plainly, honestly and with compassion to help you find your way.
“You have a unique ability to connect and serve your client’s highest purpose. You ‘see’ what’s needed. You ‘enact’ what’s needed. You ensure it’s at a pace they need.” RL, Charlotte, NC

“You were a key determinate to my reclaiming an essential part of myself (my artist-dancer etc) which infused new energy, confidence and authenticity back into my leadership.” Barrie Barton, Stand & Deliver Asheville
“When you and I started working together you set me on a path of change I didn’t know how much I would need.” LL, Charlotte, NC
“Angie’s relationship with nature and her use of nature as an environment for growth was revolutionary for me.” Roberta Borsella Farnum
“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

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, and more recently kayaking 340 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, up the St. Mary’s River in Georgia, crossing the Okefenokee Swamp, and paddling the entire Suwanee River to the Gulf of Mexico.
In 2016, she and her husband 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.
