Pegi Burdick is a personal development coach for executive women who have achieved success in many areas of their lives but still feel unhappy. She helps women who feel trapped by “the glass prison” to break free and make decisions that will help them live the lives they deserve.
Her journey to her current work began in 2003 when she was a vice president of national sales for a knitwear company owned by a woman and staffed by women, with a female client base. It was in this environment that Pegi began to understand the unique intricacies of how women communicate, grow, and interact with one another.
Unresolved financial conflicts between the owner and the management team frustrated Pegi, and led her to seek a saner, predictable environment. At the recommendation of her then husband, who saw how instantaneously Pegi established trust with total strangers, she became a mortgage broker. She quickly discovered, and was amazed by, the countless ways women had mismanaged their finances. The trusting relationships she developed with these women also afforded her much deeper insight into the intimate details of their lives, and she learned that many of them were coming out of abusive relationships. They were burdened with house payments they couldn't afford, and had children to feed, but were not receiving financial support from their estranged husbands.
In 2005, the stories and the struggles of her clients inspired Pegi to develop the concept for a business, Home Loans For Women. The company strived to help those women keep their homes and repair their finances, while donating 5% of the net profit to organizations that helped victims of domestic abuse.
In 2007, Pegi faced her own demons as her life approached its own financial cliff. Divorce, death and moving, pulled her forward into her commitment to finally get control of her spiraling-down life.
In 2008, Pegi began coaching women to help them discover what their financial behaviors reveal about the disguised emotions that control everything in their lives. “Your finances are a symptom of an underlying emotional issue that needs to be addressed,” says Pegi. “You can’t fix your finances without fixing the problem that created them, but once you do, other areas of your life will also improve.” She wrote the book, “It’s NEVER about the Money…even when it is,” to share her insights, creative tools and healing processes she uses with her clients all over the world.
Through her coaching and public speaking engagements, Pegi gives women permission to follow their feelings, identify self-sabotaging habits, and establish self-trust.
“Your feelings are your identity,” says Pegi. ”When those childhood feelings get triggered by present-day challenges, it can put us into such a deep conflict that at times, will feel like a life or death struggle. How we manage those battles will be determined by how much inner control do we really want; do we really want to do the hard work of gaining self-awareness?”
Like many children who were raised on the East Coast, education and financial success was emphasized. Pegi felt the pressure to achieve success according to others’ standards, rather than her own. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from New York University in the ‘70s and then attended the Culinary Institute of America and opened a restaurant in Manhattan. When the partnership with her fellow owners went awry, Pegi moved from the “dark, bad weather” of New York to sunny Los Angeles.
It took 22 jobs, four businesses and two failed marriages for Pegi to work through many of the issues that had been keeping her from her true calling; helping other women work through the pain and isolation of their “glass prisons,” to feel free, in control of their lives, and finally happy.
Testimonials Press Page
“Pegi is brilliant, spot on with her analysis, and creates a comfortable environment in which women can share sensitive issues and not feel shamed. She is a master at identifying the root of an issue in lazer-quick time and then offering a tool to repair the issue.”
Sophie B. Hakim
“Her method of bringing a person from insecurity to confidence is as practical as it is powerful and I can absolutely attest that it was her way (hilarious, wise and consistent) combined with practical weekly exercises that helped me get through my divorce with grace and love.
When the time was right, I was able to end things with my husband from a place of self-love and confidence.”
Mary C. Shurett

“When I met Pegi, I was a confused 40 year old who had just been left by her husband of 20 years. I was working for an abusive tennis club owner. I had very low self-esteem.
I needed help, but struggled with sharing my feelings with anyone, I felt like a failure as a Mother and wife. Pegi recognized it and took on the challenge to help me get a grip. She has a knack for getting one to consider healthier ways to live life thoughtfully and effectively.
The tools she taught me how to use five years ago I still use to this day. I could go on and on. I now own the salon I worked for, quit the tennis club, divorced my abusive husband, and my children are now stable young adults. I know her coaching helped to give me skills leading me to an awesome life!”
