Why I chose to be a Life and Business Coach.
My background is in social work and I have worked over 20 years with many people going through very difficult times. I have helped them reach their goals and get back to living a life that they want.
I was also hired to go into companies to improve their performance and get them ready for audits and joint commission visits.
One day after having a crappy day at work, I realized that I was not living the life that I wanted. As much as I loved helping people, I was feeling lost and stuck. I realized that I was missing something in my life, and I was not living my own life. I have been a daughter, sister, wife, a mom and an employee. I had forgotten about me and What makes me “me”? I realized that I had put everyone else in my life first. I dealt with my own struggles and the ups and downs of my life, while worrying about and taking care of everyone else.
As I was sitting in traffic on the drive home, I knew I had to start taking care of me. Put me first. I had to live my life for me not for anyone else. I had to give myself the permission to say “No” or Do something just for me. I thought of the saying, “if you want a happy home, keep mom happy”. Then, I said why am I not keeping me happy?
This was not easy for me to do right away but I realized how important it was. I knew that if I did not start taking care of myself and make some drastic changes in my life, I was going to keep feeling out of balance and lost. I wanted to be the best me as well as the best mom and wife. I had to learn to be, me and love me. It was time for me to shine!
My friends, family and those close to me always told me that I was their “go-to person” when they needed help or had a problem.
So, I looked at my career experience, friendships, and education and passion for life to point me in the next step in my career. The idea of helping others as a Life and Business Coach was the natural choice and next step for me to take. I know I want to help people with their journey in life and help them reach their full potential as well help companies improve their work environments for their employees and help them become successful.
For fun, I enjoy watching sports. One of my favorite things to do is to go to Tampa Bay Lightning Games or watch them on TV. I also love going out to different places to eat and trying new food. However, the most important thing to me is my family and the time I spend with them.
So now it is your time to take the next step and contact me today to Embrace, Empower and Energize your life or business with my plans and allow me to work with you as your new Strategic Life Coach.
