Life coaching excites me. It is something I am so passionate about. Being a life coach is not something I every really thought of being until about a year ago. I was plodding along, periodically wondering if I should go to grad school for history, which was my college major, and become a professor. I was also contemplating getting a degree in counseling because I am a compassionate person who wants to help people.
I’ve thought of being an acupuncturist, an addictions counselor, a nutritionist and many other things. I am also a writer and wanted to work that into my career path. I had forged a decent home-based business as a writer so I could raise my kids and be there for them, but now they’re 15 and 20. They don’t need me around that much.
My own life coach suggested that maybe this was a good path for me. I immediately knew he was right. It was the answer I had been looking for. I joined a program at Rhodes Wellness College and have loved every minute of the process. I love coaching. It’s just a conversation between two people who are very in tune with the process and working hard to find solutions for one person, the client. My clients do the hard work. I hold space for them and I learn something new about myself every time.
Giving to others helps me give back to myself. I can’t believe I get paid to do this. I know that coaching can work miracles. I want to share my passion with you and help you achieve the life you want.
