Who are your clients?

I work with people just like you who are usually the highest in the class. You’re the person your family, friends, and coworkers comes to for solutions, yet you sometime feel alone. You have a great job, you make a decent living, better than most people in your circle, but you know you are not being paid your true worth. You believe you deserve more. You are loyal to a fault, and have a heart for giving, but don’t know who you can turn to in a time of need. You have always been successful in whatever you put your mind to, but feel like you were created for more purposeful work. You have a burning desire to make an impact in the world.

You crave the freedom to do more of what you love and we’re created to do. You need spiritual and mental support from a like-minded tribe of successful people. You need the tools to advance to next level in your career. You want to release limiting thoughts and push through fear. You need a safe and supportive space to be transparent.

What makes you different from other coaches?

I coach from experience, not just theory. I have been there, done that, and literally wrote a book about it. I’m a proven leader. In addition to building other servant leaders along the way, I successfully navigated corporate America to become the 1 st African American Executive for Porsche, all while overcoming fear, loss, divorce, financial ruin, my own limiting beliefs, and did I say FEAR! My message is my ministry.

I’m very spiritually grounded, and believe that each of us was given a purpose before being born into this world. That purpose is for others, not for us. I believe that the world needs illuminating and it only happens when people like you and me are walking in our purpose, and shining our lights to create positive change for others. I believe in tough love which means I won’t allow you to nestle in your comfort zone or have a pity party. You will always get honest feedback, and purposeful direction.   Afterall, the world is waiting on you to show up, and I take that very seriously!

I’m concerned with how to get you to the next level FAST – to help you STOP wasting time and leaking your energy and your power where it doesn’t belong and get you focused on taking action sooner.

I don’t beat around bushes or waste time.  You may not always like what I have to tell you – but you can be sure I will always tell you the truth. The truth about what’s standing in the way of your success and how to get rid of it FAST so you can start getting results in record time (Hint: It’s usually YOU!) I will hold you accountable, and push you to the next level.

What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?

The Khalil Experience: Illuminate Life Acceleration Coaching: From Auto-Pilot to Driver products and programs were created for people who are absolutely excited and dead serious about living a life of purpose, and abundance, and ultimately getting paid what they are worth.

This means not running around all day long, beating yourself up anymore saying: “I have to work twice as hard to get half ”. They were created for you to put systems in place within a few months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually lead you to increased wealth, promotion, freedom from limiting thoughts, and a new mindset of abundance.

Being a high achieving go-getter myself, I’m known to work best with other hard working people who are committed to their success no matter what. People who are super-ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to take to break the hard worker trap. My clients often tell me – “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it!” Consider what you’ll do with me to be a high-octane crash course on everything you need to know to break free from limiting thoughts and other peoples lids on your potential. You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: Take Full Control of Your Life to Experience High Speed Success.

For what type of professionals are your programs NOT going to work?


Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.)

The Khalil Experience: Illuminate Life Acceleration Coaching: From Auto-Pilot to Driver programs are NOT for those who have no money coming in and are absolutely, financially desperate, at least not right away. It’s been my experience that people in financial crisis do not trust the recommendations I give them and do not do the work (probably because they spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get next month’s rent check or mortgage payment.) If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another. Do yourself (3) favors:

1. Get some money coming in with a full-time or part-time job at the very least, and then call me. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your mind enough to focus on the The Khalil Experience: Illuminate Life Acceleration Coaching: From Auto-Pilot to Driver assignments and the BIG picture.
Once you start seeing real results in your career and/or business as a result of our work, you can then start pulling yourself up out of the hard worker trap and focus on your own purpose.

2. Subscribe to receive my free email newsletter over email https://www.crystalkhalil.com/.
The free information will get you started towards your goals until you’re ready to work
with me one-on-one.

3. Make a point to read the “The Khalil Experience” weekly tip in my e-zine. The tips are sent over weekly and will give you LOTS to think about. Doing these three things will really help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, schedule a call with me and we’ll get you started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me.) Other types of personalities I won’t work with (without exception) are the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?

About Crystal

The Illuminator 

How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a transformation coach?

To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting “compelling story”, that brought me to where I am today – coaching people like you on exactly what to do to achieve the mindset changes they want to walk in their purpose. That defining moment in my life happened in 2011.

Several months earlier, while I was working at  Coca-Cola, I was offered a job out of the blue by another company. They found me – I hadn’t been looking.

I loved what I was doing, but after two rounds of negotiations, the money and benefits sounded really good – so I accepted. But when I went to resign, my boss asked me to give her a little time before I sealed the deal.

Before I knew it, the VP of my department came to my office and explained to me where I was on this “Nine Box” performance grid. It turned out I was on a “High Performance/High Potential” track that no one told me about. He then presented me with an attractive counter-offer.  I learned a lot that day and gave him my word to stay.  Two days later, the corporate love of my life – where I rose from entry level to become the first African American executive worldwide, where I was first inspired to write my book: “Hard Workers Work Hard and Networkers Move Up,” called with an offer I couldn’t refuse.

I loved the idea of going back to Porsche and teaching others, especially women and minorities how to build connections and get promoted. Many of us were lovingly taught by our parents to be the hardest worker, keep our heads down and our nose clean. I had learned back in 1993 that the “work hard” formula was the fast track to staying small and broke.

My passion grew into developing people on and outside of my team. I started investing in my own leadership, hiring executive coaches and devouring everything I could read about leadership and purpose-finding.

It was a trip to one of the most beautiful places in the world, Cape Town, South Africa where I found my heart’s desire. Standing on Table Mountain, I held hands with my best friends and petitioned God: “I want to be able to travel this entire world, see every beautiful thing you ever made, serve you and help your people without regard for resources.”

In that moment, I heard myself saying: “Where did THAT prayer come from? If this is truly what I want, how will I ever break free of living someone else’s dream to follow my own purpose?

I made a decision right then and there that I needed to be FREE.  Free from debt, free from other people’s expectations and judgement, and most of all Free from my own limiting thoughts.  I was going to live purposefully no matter what it took! At that very moment, I made a commitment to immerse myself in absolutely everything that had to do with my success: I became a certified John Maxwell speaker, trainer and coach.   Under the tutelage of my coach Lisa Nichols, I became intent to become a better speaker, and transformational coach.

I continued to invest in my growth and wrote a book about my success called “Hard Workers Work Hard, And Networkers Move Up!” In 4 years, I had gone from standing on Table Mountain, the picture of success by the worlds standards, but hungry to uncover the purpose God placed in me, to standing in my truth and resigning from my very comfortable corporate job to follow my own dreams as a transformational speaker, trainer, and coach!

I cleaned up my past and started teaching purpose and passion driven professionals who come from the “hardest worker” syndrome how they can do the same: I watched their sense of freedom, independence and confidence to pursue new promotions and opportunities skyrocket. I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping other smart, driven, independent thinkers who want to get ahead breakthrough their inner blocks, make more money and have the FREEDOM to create the life and career they’ve always dreamed of.

Since then, I’ve worked with many private clients, spoken in front of countless groups: I’m living my dream of traveling all over the world and earning an income while I travel with my online business.  I have created, “The Khalil Experience:  Illuminate Life Acceleration Coaching: From Auto-Pilot to Driver; Take Full Control of Your Life to Experience High Speed Success”, a series of 9 important inner and outer freedom building steps every person with a burning desire to make a difference in the world needs to apply to get out of her own way, be in control of her own life and career and say yes to the opportunities that will have her live in her greatness.
