Meeting with Cary was literally a God-send for me and for my business. I was truly struggling with the direction in which I would be moving our business for the future. Cary was able to understand those difficulties and ask the right questions to help me recognize the importance of knowing what I was really passionate about and how I could use that passion to grow the business. She took the time to look through my website and social media pages and offered great suggestions on how I could improve the look and feel of each one. I have already implemented many of her ideas and I am looking forward to implementing more on our newly updated website. Having started several businesses and Vend Raleigh, Cary has personal knowledge of how to connect to customers, subscribers and others in a truly relational way. If you are looking for someone to get a “fresh set of eyes” on your business, I would highly recommend Cary. Her perspective and advice have been invaluable to me. I am certain that she will bring that same enthusiasm to all her clients.

The consult was great and outside opinion was nice to hear. The write up of [Cary’s reviews were] very helpful in [allowing me to stay present in the consult and not having to take notes, giving me direction after our meeting.]

Beautycounter is a mission based company that launched in March of 2013. Beautycounter’s mission is to get “safer products into the hands of everyone.” You may be wondering what does that really mean. It means that Beautycounter is about educating and informing consumers on how to read their personal care labels. Beautycounter provides an option to choose safer products for you and your loved ones. Beautycounter has skincare, body care, kids and baby line and cosmetics.
The last federal law to regulate the ingredients in personal care products was in 1938. To date, the US have only banned 30 ingredients, whereas the European Union (EU) have banned 1400. Therefore, it is perfectly legal for personal care companies to include ingredients that are known to be harmful to our health. With that in mind, Beautycounter created a Never List that comprises over 1500 questionable or harmful ingredients that is prohibited when formulating their products. Beautycounter creates products with safety and performance in mind. When Beautycounter launched in 2013, there were 9 products; however now there are 90 products and more in the works.
I’ve been using Beautycounter for over 2 years and started as a consultant in July 2016. I decided to join as a consultant after my youngest daughter started Kindergarten. I wanted to find a job that would be super flexible so that I can still focus on being a stay-at-home Mom. I already loved using Beautycounter products, so I thought what better way to share the mission and help our family out financially.
If you’re interested in finding out more about Beautycounter, I’d love to chat with you. I also have products on hand for you to try. You may contact me through email [email protected] or phone 415.517.0112. Here’s my personal website for you to check out the products: beautycounter.com/dinasaiz Looking forward to meeting you!

Noa is an Inspirational Speaker, Certified Professional Coach, Author
Clients: Progressive – out of the box thinkers, business leaders, Executives, Individuals and teams that won’t settle for the norms to create the change they want.
I Help You Dare because you Care.
Noa’s first experience as a leadership coach was when she served in the Israeli Navy as a leadership trainer. She helped officers learn what does it mean to lead by example and walk their talk. Since then her passion for working with leaders and learn more about leadership has never stopped. Noa brings over 20 years of experience in Change Management, Human Resources, Project Management, Talent and Development, Relocation and Expatriate Coaching. Noa worked at the for-profit and the non-profit sectors, inside organizations and as an external consultant, she led employees for money and led volunteers for passion.
Noa learned first hand, through her personal relocation experience, that many times when we step into the path of change, we think we know how the change is going to look like, but in reality, it seems different. This personal experience made her obsessed to understand better the emotional and social state during a time of change. She studied how it impacts personal growth, awareness, grief, decision making, organizational culture and of course leadership.
what is the norm?
After the move to the US, it took Noa years to be okay with the idea that every time she opens her mouth people know that she is different. This new reality taught her to see people and life situations from a new perspective and respect the different and different opinions. This is why her passion is to encourage progressive leaders to keep challenging the norm, to think differently and never settle on leading a change they care so much.services
Noa inspires progressive social business leaders, executives, teams, and individuals to dare. She believes that norm is only a word with no real meaning. Her talks, workshops, and coaching spark people’s desire to show up. She encourages them to stop flirting with change, think outside the box and never settle down on being the unique person they are. Especially, if they don’t fit the “norm-box.”
Noa lives in Raleigh, NC with her husband, Ofir, and three loud, hungry teens who teach her how to fear no one and be an aware parent. As a giver, Noa loves hosting people and make too much tasty-healthy food (yes it is possible). Running outdoors is a meditative outlet for Noa, it allows her to connect with nature and disconnect from the screens and take time to deepen her ideas. In 2017 Noa started “On the Run,” videos where she shares inspirational short and sweaty thoughts after her runs. You can find those videos on her social media feeds. When Noa is not coaching or speaking, you can see her in one of the local coffee shops sipping on a good cup of caffe-latte while writing her thoughts.values
- Courage (while respecting the fear)
Contact Noa to schedule 30 minutes free consultation that will allow you to design your work plan with her.
“Noa’s coaching led me to discover that I simply needed to give myself ‘permission’ to take the steps necessary to invest in myself more fully, take control of my day to day decisions/actions and focus on the important work and doing so with confidence.”
“Noa has a gift of knowing how to push and challenge when needed and pull back and hold the space in a nurturing way at other times. I still use many of the tools that Noa gave me today when I get stuck or feel overwhelmed with life. Noa is talented, creative and an incredible coach.”
Noa has a gift for totally engaging her audience through a variety of professional coaching techniques. She asks thought-provoking questions that can’t be answered with a one-word response of” yes “or “no.”… She gave everyone a sense of ‘can do!’…I highly recommend Noa for groups who are looking to: build efficient and effective teams, audiences who want a solid motivational speaker who is able to deliver concrete suggestions based on real-life scenarios, and organizations that need a fresh pair of eyes to help them better focus and redirect their mission if needed.
