Her passion is elevating, empowering, and enriching the lives of leaders locally and around the world.

In March of 2018, Lillit with hundreds of John C. Maxwell coaches from around the world, trained thousands of leaders from various organizations at government levels, hospitals, schools, churches, and private sector companies in Costa Rica.

She has a double major Bachelor’s Degree in Management Information Systems & Accounting and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Cal State University, Northridge. This set her up for success in building and running a business in the medical x-ray field while transitioning it into the era of new digital technology in the Radiology Industry. Being a female minority in this technical x-ray equipment field, she successfully led and transitioned hundreds of medical office doctors and staff to digital radiology with her skilled mentorship and training in digital x-ray equipment. Today many of her customers refer to her as “the bridge” due to her ability to understand the technical lingo and communicate it to the end-user in language that helps them easily understand and integrate it into their everyday practice.

But above all, she is a proud mother of two beautiful, bright, compassionate, selfless, and caring daughters who have been her inspiration and drive to create a better world for all, today and for future generations!


"Lillit Cholakian is incredibly intuitive, a wonderful listener, and highly pragmatic and has found her calling as a career coach. In terms of pedigree, she is a successful business person who also happens to be a trained coaching professional. Lillit assesses and offers a view of your situation quickly. She was extremely helpful in developing my vision for the organization, and for thinking through how to manage issues while pursuing the next milestone. She sees the best in you and helps you to build a plan for how to put those strengths and passions to work in a career and in life. Equal parts business and advisor, coach, and cheerleader, Lillit helps you to bring your vision to life.

"Lillit Cholakian is an incredible coach and mentor. I have taken several of her mastermind classes with John Maxwell. Each one of the classes have had a different focus and a different group of people sharing ideas and experiences with each other. The one constant has been the way that Lillit can listen and give input and advice in a profound way that makes me want to do better. She has planted seeds to create a leadership fanatic within me. Since starting her classes I have taken on a Board of Director’s position with PCMA SWP chapter and became the President of Speaking Your Business Toastmasters club. In addition, I have applied what I have learned within my work and personal life. I highly recommend that you contact Lillit and let her help improve your life as well."
