Burcu Shines and Makes Others Shine

#31 Burcu Unsal, 37 - Life Coach
Burcu Ünsal was born in a coastal town of Mediterranean Turkey, Anamur, to a loving family of educators in 1979. Since she was a little girl, she has loved speaking, singing, entertaining and sharing her gifts with the world. She learned to play different instruments such as the flute, mandolin and organ at a young age and continued with the guitar as a teenager. As a smart and multi-talented girl, she was both the valedictorian, representing her high school in quiz shows and the main talent of the school, receiving several music and literature awards. So a small town with limited opportunities was not really what she was after. She wanted more in life.
She had to fly higher! And she knew education was her answer. She studied with her heart to live a life on her own terms. And she scored within the top 100 takers of the 1995 university exam, receiving the honor of getting her Bachelor’s Degree at METU and a rare scholarship opportunity from the government. And this was how Burcu Ünsal left her hometown and began to search for her shining soul.

Her educational background includes but is not limited to a BS in International Relations from METU, an Award in General Business Studies with Concentration in Marketing from UCLA Extension, an Executive Education Award in Building and Leading Customer Centric Organizations from Harvard Business School and another BS, MS and an ongoing PhD in Metaphysical Psychology from the University of Metaphysics. Burcu Unsal has also had the privilege of working with the best names in the personal development and success studies such as Dr. Richard Bandler, Tony Robbins, Les Brown, Brendon Burchard, Adam Markel, Bill Walsh and Robert Kiyosaki.

Having attained an Executive Management level in her marketing communications career after 10 years of international experience with Fortune 500 brands like Coca Cola, AVON, BP, Kotex, Gillette, Audi, etc. at multinational advertising agencies like McCann Erickson, Saatchi & Saatchi and Ogilvy, and having worked with the world’s biggest gurus in personal development, Burcu Ünsal created Be-Live in U International NLP & Coach Training in 2011, and has been leading it since then, with a vision to push humanity forward.

She is the only Turkish-American Licensed NLP Trainer in the whole world, an ICF Accredited Life Coach Trainer, an award-winning Motivational Speaker, a top-rated Course Author and a Lead Instructor, teaching Leadership Communication Strategies and Emotional Intelligence at UCLA Extension.

Having touched thousands of people’s lives from all over the world with her passion for change and growth, Burcu Ünsal has been featured on numerous international TV interviews, newspapers, magazines and radio shows. She has also spoken on several seminar and conference stages as a Motivational Speaker, to call out the leaders in people and empower them to let their power shine out.

In addition to all this, Burcu Ünsal is a Distinguished Professional at the world renowned Who is Who Registry; the Official Life Coach Sponsor and the Miss Turkey Franchise Owner of the Queen of the Universe Beauty Pageant; the California Women’s Conference’s and Women Network’s Executive Director for Turkey; a Strategic Partner for Success Resources in Los Angeles and in Turkey and the selected Ambassador for Turkey for United Nations’ Olympia Awards, 7 Arts of the World. Her first book “You are a STAR, Shine! (Sen Bir Yıldızsın, Işılda!)” was published by the biggest publishing company in Turkey, Dogan Novus, on January 1st, 2016 and she now is also a published author. And because she Be-Live's when we solve all the communication and behavior problems in the world, starting with the one with ourselves, this place will be a much shinier and happier place, she literally stepped up and claimed her new American name to be "Shiny"; the one who shines and makes others shine.
