BeYOUtiful Minds goal is to equip young adults with a true understanding of themselves and to give them pride in themselves and the confidence and motivation to be the best version of themselves that they can be, starting sooner rather then later.

Founder Karolina Sky Rafalski “I have a strong belief in educating our youth from a young age about who they are, how their mind works and what their unique talents and career interest are. How can students and young adults be expected to make a career choice if they don’t truly understand who they are?

That’s what BeYOUtiful Minds is here for, I want all young people to avoid many years of searching and copying others and as a result making the wrong life choices.

In my practice I have noticed that most of my clients are in their late 20’s and 30’s and their biggest struggle is that they don’t know what their true passion or purpose is and they feel lost!

Through a process of self discovery, by means of a combination of psychometric assessments, career guidance, coaching and uniquely targeted moltivational talks, many young individuals reach their “Aha moment”.

The best part of my job is to see my clients walk out of my office with so much promise and pride within who THEY REALLY ARE. They leave motivated and determined to live their purpose. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could do this for our youth at an early age?

My view is that prevention is always better then the cure and I would like to equip our youth with the invaluable self knowledge that will help them avoid searching for answers in the wrong places but rather focus on their uniqueness within, understand how their mind works and get them on the right career and life path from day one. With this follows high self esteem, confidence,positive self-talk and an appreciation of others for their uniqueness. We can create a generation of smart, happy and powerful young individuals who will inturn contribute to their local communities. This is why I started BeYOUtiful Minds.”
