Are you ready to...Step Inside the Arena?

Monica McCoy

Monica McCoy is the Founder of MonicaMotivates, an organization providing coaching, speaking, and consulting services that helps women transition from being spectators with their lives to being active participants inside the arena.



In 2011 Monica McCoy noticed the amount of individuals struggling to find their passion and purpose.

Sparking her to action, she founded MonicaMotivates, providing executive-level speaking, global coaching and consulting services to professionals, corporations, and small business owners. Monica initially thought that she wanted to be a cardiologist when going to college, but quickly learned that she wanted to help save people lives in a different manner. MonicaMotivates focuses on providing actionable solutions for business owners and professionals to pursue their passion, dream, and goals in order to maximize their fullest potential.

Monica most recently was the Acting Global Director, Strategy and Innovation for The McDonald’s Division where she led a range of visionary business initiatives. She recently left The Coca-Cola Company to dedicate her work to MonicaMotivates full time.

A measure of a great motivational speaker is one who has been through the very challenges that they have been called to address… one who lives the very principles that they espouse to their audiences. Monica is that type of motivational speaker. Her journey is a powerful and inspirational one made possible by the values and philosophies that she will share. She connects well with people because she truly cares about making a positive impact in other lives.

MonicaMotivates your enthusiasm and spirit is infectious. With the recent changes in my career your guidance has been priceless. The coaching steps given may seem common sense to some, but during difficult times hearing someone reiterate your thoughts is tremendous. You have provided the inspiration to not be discouraged and move forward with intent. For that I say "THANK YOU" I use my "Awesome Next Job" File daily. Thanks again and continued success!!
