How I got into Life Coaching
I'm truly living my life long dream of being with my kids at home everyday but I also know I have something to offer. I feel like I've always been a coach, not that I had the skills already, but just something inside of me that wants to help people, wants to listen, wants to understand them, and people have always opened up to me asking for help.
My husband went back to school a few years ago for an MBA and I was interested in and absolutely loved learning about everything he was studying. I realized how stagnant my learning had become. Which was so uncomfortable for me because I'm a learner and it wasn't really part of my life at that time. Granted, I had a baby, a one year old and a 2 year old when he went back to school so I was pretty busy. But it lit a fire in me that I had let burn out. I started reading everything I could get my hands on about habits, self improvement, psychology etc. and I decided someday I wanted to be a therapist. But that it wouldn't happen soon because I loved being a stay at home mom and I want to be with my children and focus on this wonderful stage.
Meanwhile I listened to Brooke Castillo's podcast and joined scholars and fell in love with coaching. I saw such a great change in my own ability to implement the changes I've wanted in my life in regards to patience with my kids, my ability to set and meet goals, self compassion, throwing away all the manuals I have for the way people interact with me ...that I decided, now is the time and I'm going to be a stay at home mom with young kids and a coach at the same time!
The tools I have learned and use with my clients are powerful, impactful and exciting. Being able to help women help themselves as they uncover what is holding them back from creating the life they want is amazing! I couldn't love coaching more!
