Meet Nina + Change It Up


Entrepreneur • Success Coach • Life Strategist • Mindfulness Practioner


I’ve always been a producer— a doer— a MANIFESTOR!

Over the past 22 years, I’ve worn many hats. I graduated top of my class from Seton Hall University for Communication Studies. I’m credentialed as a professional, personal, and confidence coach, as well as a mindfulness practitioner (IAHT global member) and emotional Intelligence facilitator.

I started off my career in the TV biz. Then, transitioned into the corporate events arena—leading massive production, creative, and cross-functional strategic teams for global Fortune 500 companies. Along the way, I traveled to over 15 countries developing countless marketing, training, e-learning and coaching programs. I also ran my own agency prior to launching Change It Up, as well as founded the non-profit—AGFS Foundation and have been an entrepreneur for over two decades.

Through my diverse career journey, I found that my greatest gifts and passion reside in my connections with people. I am the happiest and at my best when I’m sharing my experiences and strategies to inspire and motivate others to achieve greater success and experience more daily joy.

In fact, my passion for learning, growing and SHARING is the backbone of—well, everything! It was as though a light was turned on shining a clear path to my own TRUE NORTH and I couldn’t ignore it and there was certainly NO going back.

So, I listened to the whisper of my soul and found gratitude in all of the important work I contributed up till this point—and that’s how Change It Up was born! This life-fulfillment brand’s fundamental principles are based on my personal experience and business expertise, but most certainly rooted in MINDFULNESS.

Although I was extremely grateful for all of the opportunities I created in my career prior to launching Change It Up, I realized there was MORE.

Once I made the massive shift in mindset, perspective and let go of negative beliefs I was able to REIMAGINE MY ENTIRE LIFE—including my career!

Since launching Change It Up, I’ve had the privilege of working with countless women around the world one-on-one, hosting nationwide group events and in leading self-development topic-driven WalkingWorkshops™ and TrailChats™ in SoCal.

I also teach my corporate clients soft skills and communication strategies, along with one-on-one executive/performance coaching and group facilitation. And, I’m currently developing e-courses, as well as collaborating with other beautiful inspiring souls who share the same vision and passion.


This is more of a calling than a job! I’m truly living the life I’ve craved since I was a child. And, firmly believe that you are never too old and it’s never too late to make a change!

Before working with Nina I felt absolutely stretched too thin and depleted with too much on my plate. Nina recognized and showed me the potential I had within to start a new career.  She has a natural gift that inspires me to increase my awareness in order to get super clear on what I truly want. And, she continues to motivate me on a path that I walk each and every day. The payoff is incredible— I now have a NEW job that I really enjoy with  AMAZING INCOME. In fact, Nina helped me completely reimagine my career so that I can also work from home, with a schedule that I dictate so I am now able to attend all of my children’s school events. I feel so fortunate to have found balance, purpose, and clarity about my career. I cannot thank Nina enough for her guidance and motivation!

I started working with Nina shortly after I retired from my 22-year career and was feeling completely lost and overwhelmed.  I realized I had used my work to define who I was and all of a sudden I was full of self-doubt and lost all confidence in myself. Nina helped me gain my confidence back and identify my priorities.  She challenged me a few times throughout the journey because I started to fall back into my ‘comfort zone’ and thought I was in a good place, but she made me realize I needed to trust the process.  I was able to work through so many different emotions—really get grounded and ready to go back into the work force RENEWED and READY!  After my sessions with Nina, I landed a new AMAZING JOB close to home that allows me to balance both work and family. Thank you Nina for being such a great mentor and coach!

Nina Antinora is living proof that it’s never too late to make a change for the better in your life. The fact that she herself has lived and breathed this process makes her all the more qualified and trustworthy in giving phenomenal expertise on how to initiate and manage change. She has helped me trust myself more, open up to the options I have and to realize that I hold all the cards! I’ve been able to up-level my career and navigate personal relationships better thanks to Nina! She has a natural gift for helping people increase their awareness and in return understand that we always have a choice. She has helped me tremendously in changing my mindset and wrapping my arms around this principle. I’m forever grateful for her guidance and will continue to utilize her tools.
