“Life will never be the same.” – Anthony Robbins
What makes for a great coach? It’s the ability to lead, to make things happen, to maximize resources and inspire others. It’s the ability to solve problems and to help individuals understand what they can achieve. And it’s the skill and the natural gift to influence and guide others to make real breakthroughs and create lasting change.
Great coaches see things as they are, not worse than they are. They have a firm grasp on reality and are honest with themselves about where they stand. They are able, to be honest with you and offer a different perspective. They do not dwell on problems and are not afraid to face them head-on. They do not allow fear and doubt to overcome them. They have the proper skills and knowledge to assess situations and find the best way to move forward.
Great coaches have vision. Their vision allows them to see the best in every situation and they share that vision with others. They understand that alone one can accomplish only so much and that they need others to be successful. They are hands-on and are not afraid to roll up their sleeves to make things happen. It goes beyond giving direction, a great coach will define the future and show you how you can attain it.
Great coaches are also strategic. Strategy is an art. Great coaches realize that transforming a vision into reality cannot be rushed. Strategy requires a plan, it may require change and It’s not always about the resources readily available, it’s knowing when to be creative, when to reach out to others, being able to think outside of the box, and see the bigger picture. It also requires patience, wisdom, and faith.

She was born in Miami, Florida to Puerto Rican parents. Her father worked in the Hospitality Industry, and as a child, Vimari and her family moved around quite a bit. She lived in Puerto Rico for the first ten years of her life, then moved back and fourths from Miami to Pennsylvania and New York. She jokes that she attended twelve different schools, in twelve years, and attributes that experience, along with her career in Hospitality to strengthening her natural gifts of connecting quickly with others and being able to adapt to their individualities.
Vimari is a natural born leader and has always been very independent, self-confident, and goal oriented. These are qualities her parents remember seeing from the time she was a young child to later when she started her career in Hospitality at a very young age in New York City.
Vimari moved back to Miami in 1999 and currently lives in the Village of El Portal with her husband Nariman, and Shadow their Chocolate Labrador. She moved to El Portal in 2004 and is happy to finally live somewhere long enough to call it home.
Vimari is innovative and for many years has been admired in the Hospitality and Meetings Industry due to her widely diverse background as a leader and her experience in sales, strategic planning, process optimization, strategic account management and organizational development. For over twenty years she enjoyed a very successful career in Hospitality before becoming an entrepreneur.
The road to her Coaching career started in 2012 when Vimari’s life took a complete shift and she was forced out of her comfort zone. Within less than a year, she lost her job, ended her eight-year marriage and became an entrepreneur starting her first company.
The job ending initially was of a relief for her because for the first time in her career she was at a place where her values did not align with the culture of the organization. Vimari was very happy to part ways from with some financial stability but after a couple of weeks when she found herself for the first time in her career without a job and not having the motivation to put herself back in the market, she became a bit insecure and began having some self-doubt. That self-doubt luckily did not last long after she was given the opportunity to work with someone who was referred to her by a longtime client. Vimari took that opportunity and decided to give the road to entrepreneurship a try. In 2013, she earned her Certificate in Meeting Management (CMM) and founded Be Productive Meetings & Events as an independent meeting planner.
Shortly after going on her own, Vimari attended Tony Robbin’s “Unleash the Power Within” and it was then she recognized that although she loved having her meeting planning business, there was something missing. After some soul searching, research and hiring a Coach, in early 2014 Vimari became a certified Strategic & Intervention Leadership Coach.
As a manager and leader, Vimari has always had a passion for training and mentoring individuals which is what brought her success in the corporate world. Her ability to identify individuals “strengths” is what helped her lead team’s to be more productive in reaching their peak potential and goals.
Today, Vimari coaches many individuals from various backgrounds, with many different needs. Her captivating personality, experience, and dedication is admired and has helped her make a difference in the lives of many.
Personally, Vimari believes in not only working hard and utilizing her talents but also in giving back. She has been very involved in different associations and Boards as well as her community, and in November 2016 she was elected to the Council of the Village of El Portal. In addition to her career and volunteer work, Vimari also believes in having somewhat of a life balance. Family and friendships are her core and very important to her, and this is how she spends much of her “off” time. She is a lover of the arts, music, and food. She also enjoys strenuous workouts, yoga, reading and on Sunday morning’s she is a lector at St. Martha’s Catholic Church.
Vimari’s motto is to everyday do something to become a better version of herself, and she believes that by doing that she can also inspire others to become a better version of themselves.
