Are you an accomplished professional or executive longing for something more fulfilling after working so hard to build a successful career?

Do you aspire to something greater – for your life, relationships and for the world?

Hi there and welcome! I’m Dolly Garlo.

My professional journey took me from critical care nursing, to law and business, to my current life as a board certified coach, author, educator, legacy planner, environmental advocate, champion of women’s leadership, sports enthusiast, loving wife and privileged guardian of a standard poodle.
Combining preferred interests and changing course myself, then working with clients to successfully do the same – while navigating issues of family, career, finances, and new lifestyle preferences, dreams and passions – led me to ‘crack the code on how to make it happen quickly and easily.

From there MASTERFUL LIFE Redesign was born!

If you’ve reached that point in your life where you’re contemplating a “second act” or a new path, wondering about a different direction or a life more fully realized… then you may:

  • find yourself going through the motions in your career without the sense of satisfaction you once enjoyed
  • want to pursue purposeful work more on your own terms, with more personal freedom
  • aspire to step into greater leadership roles or have greater influence in areas you care about
  • fear you’ll miss out on your bigger dreams or the meaningful involvements you’ve imagined, or
  • are able to make a career shift financially, yet worry about making the right choices…

If you’ve just started pondering any of that, then this was designed for you!

So you can …
  • Enjoy more of the life you’ve worked so hard to build
  • Work for a bigger, more satisfying and successful purpose
  • Engage in more personally meaningful involvements
  • Exercise greater leadership and influence in business or community matters
  • Discover ways to have more of a positive impact — and more fun…

Not sure where to begin?


here’s how you can create the customized roadmap you need
to build on your career success and ALL areas of life important to YOU…
without reinventing the wheel!

Imagine in Just A Few Short Weeks – You’ll Be Ready to

Step Into an Exciting New Chapter of Your Life Smoothly and Gracefully, with

  • Clarity about where you want to go with your work, life and other involvements
  • A Customized Plan for how to get there and
  • The Confidence that comes from being ready to make it happen!

It’s time to “have it all” — your personally defined all:
a life filled with renewed purpose and greater satisfaction to Live, Work, Lead and Contribute with More Meaning and Joy…

Yes, you can!

No more wondering or worrying…

  • No more frustration from an unfulfilling day-to-day
  • No more sleepless nights from the stress of indecision.
  • No more struggling to find the right assistance and direction!

No more! Creating the exceptional life you envision happens much faster with a system and solid support.

Otherwise, it’s like driving in a new country without a map.  You’ll get somewhere, but will it be where you actually want to go?

And what might you miss along the way?

You are not alone.

Few people get to the masterful point of mid-career knowing how to design and build what comes next – even accomplished people with financial security who could pursue early retirement.


The problem – especially for women – is that it is difficult to find role models or mentors to show you how. Too many accomplished people are actually unaware of the many opportunities and choices available, or how to pursue them.

Most just figure it out as they go along, and wonder about the best next direction. They lack a plan for what’s next. If they set out on their own, they can feel isolated and alone.

“The Dream Has Become A Reality”

When I contacted Dolly Garlo I really could not define what I wanted to do next in life – but I knew I needed a change from my practice in medical oncology. I was beginning to feel that no matter how hard I worked or how passionate I was about every one of my patients – I was not making enough difference. For more than 20 years I listened to patient stories and saw their anxiety and frustrations during their hospital stays. I had accumulated a spiral notebook of ideas and thoughts on how to improve bedside patient care in hospitals. Dreams are one thing – but bringing them into reality takes a leap of faith and courage. Without Dolly, I would not have been able to finally declare that what I wanted to do next. Step by step, together, we worked a plan – and the dream has become a reality.

“The Time Involved To Recreate Myself Would Have Been Too Great”

When we started working together I was running my own family law mediation practice, and considering other possibilities to better address both my work and my personal involvements. Our work helped me focus on other options that were more interesting and exciting for me yet allowed me to use the skills and experience I have already acquired. It opened that creative process and helped me think outside the box.

As a result, rather than thinking that all great opportunities must be out of sight, far away, requiring more education or meeting the right people … we looked closer to home, where I discovered the opportunities right under my nose! If I had not taken the time to stop and think, I may have leapt too far away from my home base, current skills and abilities, and the time involved to recreate myself would have been too great!!

“Make Your Wildest Dreams Of Success Come True”

Before I worked with Dolly, there were factors taking their toll on my business and my personal peace: the economy, time and money developing a recession proof product, and the slow but sure demise of my father and mother – I was intimately involved in managing their caregivers and rallying my siblings for assistance. The compound effect of these three factors were taking their toll.

Working with Dolly was an absolute pleasure – welcoming, compassionate, organized, and insightful. She was no stranger to business and I felt in steady and capable hands. Working in community with all the other students facilitated deep insights as to directions and choices. I was able to grow from a struggling artist with potential to a fashion designer of couture silk art wear for destination island weddings, honeymoons and resort getaways with a business – not to mention being happily remarried and moving to Hawaii. Dolly works from the highest of integrity and I cannot recommend her more highly – may it make your wildest dreams of success come true.

“Reconnected to a Belief in Myself and in Possibilities”

I chose to participate because I felt you heard and valued me as a person, and encouraged me to follow my heart calling as a valuable direction and use of time. The course description was exactly what I felt I needed and wanted… to work with someone who knows some of my life journey joys & struggles, strengths & weaknesses.

I wanted most to shift how I felt about myself and my life direction so I could connect to realistic new possibilities for my life & work. Early on I began to see myself differently… that I have strengths, and a unique contribution to make to life. I began to clear away things I was only tolerating and reconnected to a belief in myself and in possibilities. Others’ stories also helped me realize I am not alone in this struggle to find my authentic work expression in the world at this stage of life.
