My coaching journey began several years ago. Although I enjoyed my work as a freelance health writer and book collaborator, I wanted more. I’d survived cancer twice, my parents had passed away, and my children were growing up. I wanted to do something new, something that really mattered and that gave me an opportunity to engage with people in a different, more meaningful way. But I had no idea what I wanted to do. I was stuck.
A friend recommended that I work with a professional life coach. I did, and I found the experience incredibly helpful. Because I had no specific passion or dream that I felt compelled to pursue, my coach encouraged me to have fun exploring possibilities, and to learn from the process. While continuing to work as a health writer, I tried many other things—working in a bookstore, teaching college classes, designing and selling jewelry, doing various types of volunteer work. I enjoyed all of those experiences and learned from each one. But I wanted something different. Something more.
As I continued my search, I reflected on everything I had learned about myself during the time I had worked with my coach. That’s when it clicked: I didn’t just want to WORK with a coach. I wanted to BE a coach. All around me, people were talking about wanting to get more from their lives. More joy. More meaning. More accomplishment. More fun! I wanted that for them, too. And I knew that coaching could help them find those things.
I signed up for coach training, and within the first few minutes of the first class, I knew I’d found what I’d been looking for.
I love being a coach. It’s so fulfilling to watch my clients make changes that move them toward a more meaningful, purposeful life. Sometimes the changes are small, and sometimes they’re big. Either way, they make a significant difference in my clients’ lives.
I’ve seen the power of coaching for myself and for my clients. It truly can transform your life.
