In a national competition, Chandra
was selected by THE
OPRAH MAGAZINE as
The Life Coach to deliver a series of coaching
sessions to the Grand prize winner of their
prestigious Toyota Moving Forward contest. She
also spent five years on NBC/TV
a weekly program called “Reality Check”. She
has written 2 books, produced several CD sets,
been interviewed on radio and newspapers as well
as having an international clientele and private
practice in Tampa where she resides. Chandra
Alexander has been living and teaching
authenticity for the last 30 years.
After winning The Oprah Magazine contest
all I can say is "Life is what happens when
least expected." This is how I can best relate
to having met Chandra. With Chandra's help and
wisdom, I was able to finally let go of a bad
situation that had resulted in the loss of my
identity, and ultimately, re-claim my place in
the world. I am finally on the road to a life
changing journey and now making decisions that
tell a different story. There is no substitute
for the gift of learning that life is full of
second chances. Chandra was there every step of

call-in questions from viewers seeking advice
"Chandra is Tampa's
very own 'Dr. Phil'. Straightforward, to the
point and doesn't fool around. When it comes to
a 'Reality Check' she doesn't pull any punches.
We love her weekly segment and so do our

I loved today's message it was perfect for me
"If you are “waiting” for the other
person to change, you are setting up a no-win situation.
We change because we want to change, not because someone
wants us to. "
I'm a Special teacher education, I teach
Pre-K students with severe and multiple disabilities.
Currently I have a principal who does not understand
these students and wants the class to be different I
have pleased him for the last two years thinking he
change and I could show what these students truly need.
Over the last months I lost my love of teaching and
looked forward to last day of school. You are so
right I can not change this principal, so I'm
looking for a new teaching job. I'm truly excited about
the search and the new possibly, I feel so BRAVE!!!!
Thank you for your daily advice

First, I would like to say that I watch
you on Daytime and I can not express enough how powerful
and to the point I feel your advice is. It is not any of
the "well, what do you think you should do" mantras we
sometimes hear from professional psychiatrists, etc. It
is simply put, right between the eyes advice about what
to do in the here and now. I applaud you for how well
you seem to express this. I am so very, very impressed
by your advice to people.
I watch Daytime as most people do. I was
ironing and watching and a lady called in about anxiety
of flying to her sister's. Well I have same problem. I
used to fly but, since it's been years that I have
flown. Our son and his wife are in the Navy in Norfolk
Va. and they have presented us with there first son
Eric Lee, which I got to give him his first name, it's a
family way we pass on, sorry got off track. The kid's
want me to fly up, but they know I have this problem, I
can fly nonstop, which is fantastic, it's just doing it
alone. Sarah (daughter in law) said she would fly down
and fly with me but I would still have to fly home
alone. I am not a baby, but I hate to get in air and
know I can't get out or open window for air , I hope you
don't think I am odd. I want to see our little man
(Eric) so bad, I can hear you, “Well girl, put your mind
to it and go fly to that little man. Can you tell this
Nana there is hope?
Hi Chandra, It’s been 1-2 years since our
last talks. I saw you on TV today and recall our great
strides in our sessions. Simply put: "Thanks!" You
look and sound great; I feel great having lost 125
pounds, and I look forward to talking with you
Fondly, Nancy McDalbot
P.S. Your chandelier earrings looked
perfect with your outfit!
I very much appreciate the interesting
and informative television segments, as well as the
question and answer portion of the segments, I have seen
on the Daytime television show. I look forward to your
Daytime television segments, and thank you.
Good Morning Chandra,
May I say how gratifying it is to listen to your frank
and sound observations and insight into problems that
face us in our attempts to live healthy meaningful
I am constantly impressed with your viewpoints and am
writing to thank you for sharing in such a way through
your TV appearances....I learn from you
I love your daily e-mails. I was going
through some things and found a card my aunt sent. It
has a wonderful verse on the back, you may have read it
before but I wanted to share it.
The highest good is like water.
Water gives life to ten thousand things
and does not strive.
It flows in places men reject and so it
is like to Tao.
In dwelling, be close to the land.
In dealing with others, be gentle and
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In business, be competent.
In action, watch the timing.
No fight: No blame
Thank you for inspiring me every day,
I watch you on DayTime regularly. I have
MS and I time my rest time after my shot to the show
You never fail to be informative and full
of life affirmations.
I watch you on the Daytime
show and I think you are great. I really try to listen
to the things you talk about, but for the first time I
think I need some help and being a man I am not used to
asking for help about my feelings.
I was visiting in Florida for a
few days on business and saw you on the morning show you
Dear Chandra: I live in Orange county
California and receive your daily emails. I love your
coaching style and the wisdom you share. I have just
transitioned out of "not-working" relationship and now
recognize all the incorrect beliefs, fears, and thought
processes that kept me stuck. Thank you for being there
when it counted the most!
Thanks in advance,
Love, Cherie Dugas

Amazingly, the few times I am home to see you on a
Monday, you seem to say just the thing that I need to
hear for my "dilemma of the moment." I thought the three
C's of a relationship was such a good relationship
litmus test but the most useful thing was when you
pointed out that more of one does not make up for a
deficit in the others. I imagined it like the soundness
of a three legged stool when one leg is woefully
shorter! I have been guilty of trying to "prop up" the
wanting area on more than one occasion...but then I come
to my senses! You are great and I love the daily e-mail.
Thanks so much,
I love it ! You Go Chandra ! The best
advice ever !
Thanks for being you ! Such an
I heard you this morning on Channel 8,
and listening to you was very refreshing. I loved your
attitude and professionalism, and I loved what you said.
Just a note - My therapist loves you!
I grew up in a narcissistic home, and
seem to attract the same kind of people in my life. I
happened to see you one morning on Daytime. This may be
the turning point I needed. I would have given anything
to go to the seminar, but I could not afford it. I
would love to have your book and will try to find the
money soon. Thank you for the daily inspiration in the
Diane Stewart, Venice, FL
I am very interested in your coachgirl
concept and have recently been turned on to you by
Channel 8 Monday mornings... I'm running out to buy
your book today, but would like to attend any future
seminars. I just missed your 9/17 event in Tampa, when
is your next seminar?
Hello, I live in NJ and was vacationing
in Tampa area this weekend (and caught your segment on
"Daytime"). My mom and I were glued (as we are both
lacking chemistry in our marriages!).
I related to everything you said about
chemistry....way to go!
Thank you so much!
A fan in NJ,
PS...Is your book available all over the
I appreciated what you said on
TV today and I have to be thankful that I had a headache
and thus got to stay home and watch you. I am new to
Tampa and new to Florida but will be watching you and
Daytime every Monday.
God bless and thank you,
I'm glad there is someone actually
competent out there, with a public forum, who is making
some attempt to help people remember how to think (for
themselves). There are so many who have forgotten. With
all the distorted input from everywhere and what appears
to be a chronic lack of any kind of reality based living
and thinking, it's no wonder. I've actually had the
thought of dropping you a note for awhile now....just to
say that I find quite refreshing your approach to the
world, people, and situations. I'm a big fan of
accepting things being what they are. A little common
sense goes a long way.
I have watched you on Mondays for many
months, purchased your books----one for each of my adult
daughters and myself, and attended your seminar this
past Saturday. Obviously, I think you're great and
value your judgment and assessment & advice of the
situations and problems posed to you by your clients and
Thank you in advance for your help!
You were awesome today (Monday) on
daytime; you were so about the "law of attraction," and
so many people you want to MAKE get it, and they don't.
Makes one ponder old Soul concept...
I Loved the segment.
Love your way,
I have seen you many times on "Daytime",
and have come to respect your authority/opinion on many
of the subjects featured there. I work late, so I catch
the second show at 3:00 a.m. and can't call in (I
actually tried) seeing as no one is there. Thank you,
and keep up the good work, but remember your work is
more than just a job.
I watched you on TV this morning and feel
like you are the only person who can help me.
I've watched you several times on TV and
just want to say I have never heard anyone speak on
relationships with more insight and understanding than
you. I have read your book and recommended it to many
of my friends. Each time I hear you, I get a better
understanding of my own relationships and make changes
that result in very positive and rewarding ways. Thank
