I am a blogger, an author, a teacher.
But first and foremost I am a coach.
My original profession, trainings and certifications were for Life Coaching and from there I have specialized even further as a Money Coach.
Yet, no matter if my clients come to me for Money or for Life - our coaching together will eventually lead right to the middle of their lives. So, my expertise as a Money Coach requires a high-degree of expertise as a Life Coach. And I should warn you: my kind of coaching is definitely a different kind of coaching.
And the clients that I coach - My People - are definitely a different breed of people.
My People know that there's a better way to live. They might not know how to get there - but they believe that there is more waiting for them and for their future.
They want to understand why they are where they are.
They want to learn.
They want to understand what's going on with them and their lives. They might want to figure some things out with their relationships (husband, boyfriend, or the lack of), understand why their mom (or anyone for that matter) still has the power to get under their skin, or refine the art of saying "No."
Maybe they just want to learn how to feel good walking around in their own skin or why they stopped laughing or smiling like they used to. Or maybe they just simply want to look forward to life again.
But at the center of everyone of my clients - you will find someone who just needs a few smart lessons, a couple key concepts, and some simple tools.
My clients know that happiness is a skill to be learned - and that just a few short coaching sessions can radically change their life.
The Way It Works:
45-minute sessions on the phone for six consecutive weeks. (If we can't do consecutive - we will just roll it into the following week.) Between sessions we follow up with homework, journaling and coaching via email.
We cover any number of these topics and tools (plus many more) custom tailored to meet your needs:
What to do when the universe doesn't behave the way you want it to - for reals... I don't do woo-woo
How to handle another person who isn't behaving the way you want them to - without using any weapons of mass destruction (or passive aggression)
Self-Esteem and how to find it - it's not lost, it's a skill to be learned
Insecurity and how to eliminate it - how to make the voices stop
How to say no - without the guilt - and without losing all of your friends and loved ones
Why arguing with reality never works - and why we still try to do it anyway
Who's responsible - really? - Who you are allowed to blame and why.
How you feel about yourself and others - and how to be a more pleasant human to be around
Changing old body beliefs - and how to shed the ones that continue to cause suffering
How to never hurt someone's feelings again - seriously life-changing knowledge here
How to never get your feelings hurt again - pure mind-ninja magic
How to 'fix' a relationship - whatever seems to be broken can definitely be fixed - and you're the one to do it
How to deal with guilt, shame, worry, etc. - how to not have these crappy feelings running your life
Working With Me:
I know that it's great marketing to make yourself scarce. It would probably be a good marketing ploy to try to trick you into thinking that I'm sooooo busy I couldn't possibly take one more customer... blah blah blah. But, I'm not like that. I don't need gimmicks and I hate it when other people use them.
So here's the truth. I'm a single mom and I work during my daughter's school hours. I'm passionate about my job and LOVE my clients. And I also love personal time with the people I love. So... I only work with a few people at a time. That way I can be a great coach AND a great human in general.
If you purchase a coaching package, I can usually guarantee starting you within a week (give or take a day) of when you sign up. I will do my best to get you on the calendar asap.
A lot of people ask me why I became a coach.
My answer to this is personal. And the story starts with hiring a coach. It's a story of my journey from a place much like the place that you may find yourself in. A life of stress. Financial anxiety. Lack of confidence. Crushing insecurity. Money worries. Weight problems. Incredibly judgmental of others (and myself). Barely thriving within a hollow marriage. Feeling separate and alone.
Don't get me wrong. I wasn't walking around like the wreck I'm making myself out to be. I was successful. I was put together. Always a smile on my face. You would have never known what was really going on inside. At the time, I didn't think it was all that bad... I could temporarily convince myself that everything was just fine. I lived my life pretending to be happy, but always with a nagging feeling that life could be a whole lot better. Always wondering if I could be happy...
Like... for reals.
So I hired a coach.
Before coaching, I used to lay awake at night, money worries rolling around in my head.
Is there going to be enough for the bills?
Why can't I get ahead?
I should be saving more.
If I could just get out of debt...
I need more money.
Why is this so hard for me?
I hate this stress.
Insomnia. Stomach aches. A mind that wouldn't ever slow down. Back then, I drank too much, ate too much, didn't work out enough, and watched way too much TV.
So why tell you all this? It surely doesn't paint me to be the perfect-picture smiley-coach that you're probably looking for.
But, let me tell you...
I've been there. I lived in that place... the place much like where you might find yourself right now. I know what it feels like to be anxious, worried, afraid, confused. I know what financial anxiety looks like, feels like. Hell, I even know what it tastes like. (You'd be surprised how closely money-worries go hand-in-hand with over-eating!) I've witnessed the consequences of financial stress in my family, in the lives of my clients and in the lives my closest friends.
Life can be so much better. I'm not kidding. You can feel a LOT better... right now. You don't have to make more money, become debt free, change careers, move houses, get married, or divorced. You don't have to do anything but get some help from someone who can teach you some simple concepts and truly show you the beauty of questioning your beliefs.
I'm no different than you are. I didn't do all of this money work on my own. I had a lot of help getting here. That's why I am passionate about paying it forward to help my clients succeed, create their own financial freedom and really truly live in financial peace.
This journey has made me a better person. A better mother. A better friend. Happier. Wealthier. Healthier. More beautiful inside and out.
I've also seen what money coaching can do for my clients. I've watched them transform their lives and find their own financial freedom. And I am passionate about helping you find financial peace as well. If you are wondering what money coaching can do for you, please shoot me an email. I have several coaching options that can work with any budget.
You don't have to do this alone.
I've got your back.
