Angela Bishop Ross is an IFC Certified Coach focused on the mechanics of creating and running a business, managing personal and business finances, and motivating others to level up in life. She has successfully run her coaching and consulting practice, based in the Oakland/East Bay area, since 2005. Angela has helped thousands of women and men level up in their lives by taking the guesswork and stress out of creating and running a business, or managing personal finances to create solid foundations.

She is a legacy business owner, serving as the Principle and Managing Partner of BishopRoss & Associates / Ultra Business Services, a boutique financial and small business consulting firm -  which includes Business Management Consulting, Accounting, and Tax, practices - started by her father 38 years ago.

With over 25 years of experience in organizational and strategic business development, Human Resources, and financial management consulting., Angela is an expert at teaching new and aspiring entrepreneurs how to get their businesses started the right way. By showing you how to recognize, trust, and follow your instincts, Angela aims to ensure you have the clarity and confidence to make the best decisions about your business, your money, and your life.

 

LIKE MANY WOMEN, ANGELA HAS HAD HER BATTLES WITH SELF-DOUBT, IMPOSTOR SYNDROME, AND PEOPLE PLEASING.  

Her transformation inspires other women who struggle with similar challenges to overcome their fears, identify their non-negotiables, aspire to define success for themselves, and live life on their own terms.  Through her laser-focused coaching, Angela has empowered thousands of women to MAKE BETTER DECISIONS WITH CLARITY AND CONFIDENCE. She leverages her corporate business experience and certifications as a Life and Business Coach to create financial, small business, and life skills programs and workshops for women, young adults, and entrepreneurs, particularly women of color.

Angela was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Systemic CNS Lupus that forever changed her life. Soon after, Cancer and Parkinson's came calling and with several strokes and seizures, she lost her memory - including her husband and baby girl - the ability to walk, and even talk.

SHE WAS GIVEN 18 MONTHS TO LIVE.

Angela began months of debilitating chemotherapy and intense rehab, pushing herself to not only learn how to walk and talk all over again, but to learn who she was and the calling over her life. 

 

She knows what it is to dig deep to find the courage to persevere and go after her dreams. The many obstacles in her life - homelessness, racism & sexism, and living with disabilities to name a few - fueled her passion to teach other women how to do the same. Her transformation and fight to live life on her terms continues to INSPIRE AND MOTIVATE. She gives God the glory, and wants to share her skills, experience, and life lessons with you!

CUTTING THROUGH THE NONSENSE

“Angela has a way of cutting through the nonsense and getting right down to the heart of the matter. She is an amazing listener and comes up with practical ways to solve problems.”

Alicia Finch, Sacramento, CA

WHY COACHING?

Coaching is fundamentally different from therapy, counseling, or giving advice; it addresses specific personal or professional goals like being open to love, getting a handle on your finances or changing careers, by identifying your obstacles. Then creating a course of action to make your life be what you want or need it to be.

But Angela is a transformational coach... She takes those basic coaching principles a step further by dealing with how you see and think about yourself in order to create true and lasting change.

COACHING IS NOT:
  • Therapy or counseling

  • Providing recovery and healing

  • About looking at and dissecting the past

  • For healing past wounds that may be affecting the present
     

 It’s Time for Coaching If You Are:
  • Tired of the indecision or making bad decisions

  • Frustrated with negative self talk

  • Overwhelmed by self doubt

  • Ready to get clarity and build confidence

  • Ready to own your power and create meaningful change, not just setting and achieving goals!
