Assalam alaykom! I'm Fatima Alshameya, a certified Life + Business Coach. I help Muslim women have amazing marriages and run successful businesses--- all while serving Allah.

......so basically for those who want have their cake and eat it too. Because.cake.is.delicious. 

But really at its core, my work is about relationships. Your relationship with your husband (because everyone deserves to be loved deeply for who they are), your relationship with your customers (because this is why people buy your products/services), your relationship with yourself (because this is the foundation to the rest), and most importantly your relationship with Allah (because that's why we're here to begin with.)

About this website's name:

Back in my college days, I bought a t-shirt at an Islamic conference that had this message printed:

One God. One Ummah. One Love. Today, 16 years later, those words still deeply resonate with me: That we have one love for each other as one Ummah because of serving One God.....so naturally, One Muslimah was born. And because One Muslimah can make a huge difference. You. Me. All of us....especially together.

What my work looks like:

Connecting with people Heart to Heart. No judgements. Letting them be seen, heard and held. No matter what.
Some sisters come to me for just relationship coaching, for example, they want to:
:::stop fighting with their husbands

:::decide if they should get a divorce or stay
:::want the passion and fun back in their lives as married women

Some sisters come to me for just business coaching, for example, they want to:
:::start their businesses like yesterday and stop procrastinating
:::they want to make more sales (without pressure induced marketing tactics. Yuck!)
:::learn to stop perfectionism and caring what people think
:::set up the right systems so running their business feels less overwhelming

And others come to me for both.......It really doesn't matter because my job is the same: to listen deeply, ask powerful questions, help you create a plan, hold you accountable and celebrate with you on as you make those goals happen (this last one = the best part of my job).

I'm certified by two life coaching schools accredited by the ICF (International Coach Federation). I went to two schools because I wanted to offer my clients two different sets of skills. My clients get AMAZING results because I'm a one stop shop.

A bit more personal:

I love tea. Sometimes I get out of bed earlier so I can spend time sipping tea before I start my day. I'm drinking tea now writing this! I'm married to a ridiculously funny husband and we have two beautiful daughters who light up my days.

I'm the Executive Director of an international 100% volunteer Islamic nonprofit organization. I created it 8 years ago and gives me the blessing of working with some amazing sisters. 

At my core, I'm a teacher and an international speaker. I've been teaching for 13 years. Speaking at events for the past 8 years. Some for small gatherings. Others where the audience was so huge, everyone looked like little ants.#goodtimes.

I've wanted to be a life coach before I ever knew what Life Coaching was. Life coaching is similar to counseling. I worked at a counseling agency after I graduated college. Though I loved it there was something missing for me & the clients. Six years later, I realized what it was when I found out  what life coaching is (not to mention 200 jobs and a diverse portfolio later).

I hope that visiting this site feels like having tea with a dear friend—the kind of friend who always greets you with a hug, who always makes you feel comforted, and who gives you that extra boost of encouragement or laughter to get through the rest of your day.

I'm so glad you're here. Feel free to call/contact me, hire me or get on my newsletter. I pray it brings you tons of benefit.
