A coach is a champion for your success.

Why would I need to work with a coach?
Because you don’t need to do life or business all by yourself anymore. Working with a coach (like me!) ensures that you have someone who’s apart of your journey to help you to think bigger, embrace your fears, and keep you on track towards your goals. Whenever you’re going through a transition and want to achieve big things, it’s helpful to have a professional listen to what’s really going on, ask you about the important things, and provide that space to help you make the best decisions for you.
What are the benefits of coaching?
Working with a coach accelerates your progress with encouragement, support, and accountability. My clients experience quicker and bigger “wins” working with me than if they were doing it all on their own. When you’re inspired and equipped to reach your goals, you experience more productivity, focus, better time management and work/life balance. Not to mention a greater sense of purpose, peace of mind, self-confidence and joy.
What's the difference between a coach and (counselor / consultant / mentor)?
A counselor uses therapy and a diagnosis approach to help a client heal from a past issue or experience. Even though a session with a coach can feel therapeutic, a coach is more future-focused, action-oriented and provides support and accountability to get you to where you want to be. A consultant identify and diagnose a person or company’s needs and issues, proposes and implement a solution, based on the consultant’s area of expertise. A coach partners with the clients to collaborate on a solution that the client can implement themselves. A mentor is someone who has “been there, done that” and is gracious enough to share their knowledge and wisdom to help you along your path. This overlaps closely with a coach, but a subtle distinction is that a coach is an expert in personal development and growth, so they’re trained to ask you the important questions to help you pave your own way.
How does coaching work?
During our first session, we’ll lay a foundation to getting to know your history, goals, and values. Each subsequent coaching session is a focused conversation that’s checking in with your progress, dealing with issues that come up, and working on what’s next. It’s conveniently done over an online conference call via Zoom, scheduled at your convenience every week or two weeks.

What do we work on together?
I love working with creative, entrepreneurial people who have the desire to grow their leadership skills and grow their teams in their workplace. Common topics we tackle together include: establishing a rhythm/routine, identifying core values, picking top priorities, planning content for speaking engagements, embracing fear, and self-care/boundaries, cultivating an amazing work/team culture, etc.
How do I pick a coach that's right for me?
I’m a firm believer that the best results comes from a great relationship/fit with a coach. Here are some things to consider when you’re hiring a coach: Get specific on the outcome you want. Coaches have different specialties, so it’s beneficial to know what exactly you want to work on. A health coach helps you with your health, a finance coach helps you get your budget and money in order, and a business coach may help you grow your business. Credentials matter. Look for a coach that has coach training so you can have the confidence they are up to the professional industry standards. We learn to dig deep, ask better questions, and listen in between the lines to give you personalized attention that works for you. Beware of self-proclaimed “coaches” who make big, lofty promises when using their one-size fits all method. Real results require time, commitment, consistent action, and helpful feedback. Results matter, too. Check out the coaches’ testimonials and success stories so see what kind of results their clients get. Are these similar results to what you’re looking for? Make sure the personality and style are a good fit. If you’re working with a coach for at least 3 months, make sure you’re a good fit and it’s someone you trust and LIKE! Coaching is a personal investment, so it’s helpful to work with someone you enjoy spending time with. For more info, check out the blog post: Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Coach
