Our History

about-us-image

Although Within Your Reach Consulting Services, LLC officially launched in 2004, the seed for this life-changing organization was planted years ago (1997). Our founder, Monifa Robinson Groover recognized a common theme which appeared in the majority of her work:

* Most people consistently try to prove themselves successful based on societal standards

* Pain has no respect of person

These two themes pose challenges that often keep individuals from embracing transformation and excelling beyond their circumstances.

Within Your Reach remains committed to helping clients realize that transforming their lives begins within. We teach our clients that once transformation has taken place on the inside, success has already been achieved. However we don’t stop there. We help our clients see how inward transformation has a positive impact on every area of life. This is what living a healthier, happier and more productive life is about. We are not only concerned about our client’s dreams and goals. We are concerned about our client’s lives.

Message From Monifa

From my heart to yours…

“The storm may alter your course but it does not have to alter your destination.” Monifa

Like many others I’ve had dreams and goals and yet encountered challenges that seemed intent on blocking my progress. Despite the challenges, I learned first hand that intention, integrity, faith and purpose were key elements to success. I am grateful for how my experiences have shaped who I have become today. My purpose is to educate, inspire, encourage and extend guidance to you, with the hope that you will be able to soar above any challenge you may encounter.

My hope is that Within Your Reach will inspire you to live your life “On Purpose” and not haphazardly. I am excited about what life has to offer and I want you to be excited too! Strong winds may seek to distract you and steer you off course, but it is important to remain steadfast and focused. I am convinced your life will become more enriched once you connect with us.

Until next time, be happy, be blessed and remember to live your life…ON PURPOSE!
