As a coach and business developer, my goal is to always create a safe environment in which my clients can see themselves more clearly. This allows us to identify gaps between where you are and where you want and/or need to be. It lends itself to us creating SMART goals and action plans that often require a shift in behavior and habits. These goals and plans then become the guiding structure for your accountability and shape our work together.

I’m Rafrica Adams (Raf for short) and when I’m not ratcheting up my Tetris scores or vanquishing opponents in Words With Friends, I do audio/video tech work for AAMG. I graduated from UNCA in 1997 with a Mass Communication degree, and I have 20+ years of experience in multiple a/v fields, including sound engineering, still photography, live PA setup/operation and video production. Additionally, I have nearly 20 years of working full-time in a live television broadcast environment under my belt, and I’ve used what I’ve learned there and applied it to shooting/editing video.
I’ve also operated a DJ business for over 20 years where I’ve provided musical entertainment for clubs, weddings and corporate events; my website for that work is http://www.sine-language.com.
I love all things design! From graphic design to mapping out the automation that helps us better connect with you, I’m the woman who gets it done. I’m an Excel nerd who is learning to fall in love with Google Sheets. Making things beautiful (visual and technical) is my passion.
I have 15 years experience helping small, service-based businesses and larger corporate departments better utilize their existing software to streamline their processes.
