About Me

North By Northwest – “Pointing You in the Right Direction for Your Life” was born out of the need of Karin E. Fried's clients for more in depth coaching. Her focus is on helping entrepreneurs and busy professionals who are overwhelmed with the challenges of juggling their busy careers and their families realign their personal values to achieve the happiness and success they deserve without the stress they are currently experiencing. Fried helps her clients balance their life and achieve their goals with support and guidance, while helping them reduce their stress.

I also help people in transitions - downsizing, retirement, career change, empty nester, relationship change..... find the next path in their life.

Coaching is defined as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. It is a highly tuned and powerful process of communication and problem solving. The relationship between a coach and a client is co-creative and focused entirely on the client’s interests, challenges, and goals.

A ‘life coach’ is someone who is trained to help you see clearly where you are today, then find ways to move forward towards your goals. Coaches help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives. They are a source of motivation and inspiration to help clients reach their full potential. They are personal trainers for their life goals.

“My ongoing education allows me to help clients with the numerous challenges that they face in everyday life” said Fried. Increasing my knowledge will enable me to provide the highest quality individualized services to my clients”.

Karin received her training through Coach Training Alliance. Prior to completing this coursework, Fried had also earned numerous certifications from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD).
