Every year around this time I reflect on the big leap I took to start my own business.
Now three years in, I reflect on how freakin’ scary it was! How even making my first professional Facebook post felt like I was inviting all of my worst fears to come and take up residence in my daily life.
What if I fail?
What if no one takes me seriously?
What if I’m not good enough? Kind enough? Smart enough? Savvy enough?
What if I don't like this thing at all?
Well, if there’s anything that working with coaching clients for 3 years will teach you it’s that those thoughts are normal, you’re not alone and when it’s all said and done, each and every one of us is capable of coming out the other side of fear stronger than when we entered.
This World Tree Coaching anniversary moment is made all the more poignant in that this week I will also reach my own birthday milestone – the big 4-0! FORTY!
I remember the 40th birthday parties of my parents’ generation always included fake gravestones and black streamers. Thank god we’re not in that place anymore! Times have changed! I think forty seems pretty awesome.
I love my work as a coach and writer. I adore with every part of my soul sitting down and supporting someone as they walk through fear and come out the other side. I love the challenge of it all and feel stretched every day to be a better coach and to tap into my strengths and confront professional challenges. I can’t claim the hard parts are easy…but I do love them!
And I also love how this work forces me to get comfortable with all the many ways we feel. The losses, challenges and passions of my clients remind me of those places in my own life. My coaching work is about my clients, but I feel like it’s a jackpot of incredible luck that I get to learn along with them.
This year – above all else – I will be celebrating! Come do that with me!
In celebration of these milestones, I am offering 5 special coaching spots at a fantastic reduced rate.
Why 5? Because that’s the space I have and I like the number.
Why the reduced rate? This is totally the social worker in me. It probably means I’m not the world’s most savvy business owner, but I love sharing things. I’m not kidding. I LOVE sharing! So, while I can’t give things away for free (all the time)…I can share the shit out of my services. My financial planner probably thinks I’m crazy.
Okay, so maybe you think you might be one of the five and maybe the price seems right, but you're still asking - Why life coaching?
Here are my favorite things about life coaching:
Life coaching is about helping you find your strengths and use them.
Life coaching helps you get to know yourself better and cut through that annoying voice in your head that tells you things that aren’t true…or tune in to the voice that totally nails the truth every time.
Life coaching supports you in the practice of living in balance between the heart and head.
Life coaching helps you learn to say yes and no better.
Life coaching is both challenging and fun…it’s like a marathon without the sweat, chafing or lost toenails.
Life coaching gives you a personal cheerleader (That’s me!) to nudge you into really living because, seriously, you are not getting any younger!
Here’s who I’m looking for:
I’m looking for those people who’ve thought about coaching and thought about coaching, but just don’t quite send the email.
I’m speaking to those of you who are super curious about the changes you want to make, but also feel scared about what you might find on the other end. Hint: Being scared is okay and there’s really no reason to do it alone.
I’m looking for those of you who just feel really, really ready to grow, to learn and to have someone (finally!) listen.
And I’m looking for those of you who feel all over the place and who regularly ask yourself, “What the hell am I doing!?”
Just 5 spots. Details here.
See you soon!
