A LESSON FROM ARCHERY:
What is an Anchor Point?
The definition of an anchor point is this: a point on an archer's face (such as the chin) against which the drawing hand is placed in order to stabilize the archer's aim before release of the arrow. (Merriam-Webster)
At Anchor and Aim, we believe that reliable, balanced, and consistent work comes from a place of being grounded. We believe in the pause before the aim, the intention behind the action.

"My experience with Gina of Anchor and Aim Coaching was excellent! I found her to be compassionate and patient, yet willing to ask questions and make observations that challenged me to learn and move forward. Gina helped me process a very long and difficult season of transition and loss. I now find myself in a much better place than when I began my coaching relationship with Gina, and I absolutely recommend her."
