In 2009, Chandell & Teresa Labbozzetta decided it was time to stop treating their mission to empower others to take control of their inner and outer landscape as a hobby, and make it their full-time occupation… and so Life Puzzle was born to help people resolve conflicts and disentangle their complicated lives.
Right from the start they knew that economic pressure was a major cause of family and health breakdown, and over they years they saw the personal and intergenerational costs of that reality grow. Today, we all know the importance of mental health and setting boundaries, but Chandell & Teresa were at the forefront of that movement.
LifePuzzle emphasises three very practical strands of intervention that deliver this transformation quickly and easily:
- Building sales, negotiation and communication skills;
- Profitable business skill that are often ignored; and
- Inner transformation because many sales and business problems are solved when our underlying beliefs and assumptions are diagnosed and addressed.
Our core programs in business and NLP run for 13 weeks with ongoing coaching and corporate team training programs that run for 6-12 month sequences.
About the Founders
People are at the heart of our vision so we’d like you understand where we’re coming from.
Chandell achieved the title of Sales Leader with Nutri-Metics at the age of 14 and went on to win personal and team performance awards in Corporate Business Development and Marketing for companies like KPMG. In 2005, Chandell suffered from professional burnout and severe depression as a result of many years of suppressed emotions and stifled disappointments. In 2006, after months of therapy Chandell discovered Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and the answer to her issues of self-worth and achievement. In 2017, she
became the first Master Trainer of NLP in Australia to be certified by the Tad James Company.
Through LifePuzzle, her goal is to As a popular Sales & Business Development Trainer and Coach, Author, and Motivational Speaker. Chandell’s dynamic personality and honesty are engaging and her passion to empower others to overcome obstacles and achieve their personal and professional goals is infectious and fosters confidence.
Through LifePuzzle, her goal is to combat the miasma of depression, addiction, and violence, that is overtaking our society by helping clients overcome their inner demons, build profitable businesses, and develop satisfying relationships and deep resilience. She uses an integrated approach which includes techniques from NLP, Time Line Therapy (™), hypnosis, and business development to help clients achieve amazing outcomes.
Chandell’s own experience, as well as that gained through over 20 years working with teams and clients, supports her conviction that mindset plays a crucial role in happiness, performance, and health. After her recovery, Chandell returned to the Corporate World and helped an under-performing sales team to grow their business by 400% in 6 months by applying the methods she wrote about in her best-selling book, “Confident Closing”, and now teaches in online courses, in-house trainings, and private coaching. You can join the many individuals and businesses each year who say, ‘Thank you, Chandell. You have transformed my business and my life!
Teresa was born in Portugal and arrived in Australia at the age of 8 speaking very little English. Her determination to solve problems, optimism, and bright smile helped her thrive during those early years. She was always looking for ways to create change that was not merely superficial, but reached down to the heart.
She spent more than 30 years as a successful hair salon owner and beauty therapist owning several salons around Melbourne and teaching Hair & Beauty at schools such as The Australian College of Hair and Beauty and The Melbourne College of Hair and Beauty.
In 1998 Teresa was diagnosed with breast cancer which required radical treatment and she credits her journey back to health to learning to “focus on the things that you want, and listening to your body’s needs”. During this time, Teresa was a Sales Director with the popular skin care company, Nutri-Metics. In just six months she recruited and mentored women and men and built her downline team to over 275 people. Through this journey, she learned the power of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Hypnotherapy as tools that help people experience inner healing, growth, and genuine satisfaction. As a Master Coach and Hypnotherapist Teresa’s goal was to give people the tools to achieve their goals and live the life of their dreams, rather than simply ‘making the best of things’ because she realised that it’s what we feel inside us that makes our lives worth living.
Teresa died in 2019 of pancreatic cancer. Right up to her final days she continued to reach out to others and bring joy and hope to those who were caring for her, but her vision has not died LifePuzzle continues her legacy of transformation through personal and economic empowerment.
To empower our clients and help them become the person they were designed to be, achieve everything they’ve ever dreamed of, and build economic, professional, and personal resilience.
