Do you wonder what it would be like to pursue a life and career that excites you?

I did and it took me a long time to figure out what that was. Below is my journey towards finding that being a life coach was my calling.

How did you become a life coach?

That defining moment in my life happened in 2013.

I quit my “secure” job as a teacher.  I loved teaching but I had enough of the horrible managers, the 14-hour days that were eating away at my relationships and left zero time for a social life.  

I was under intense pressure to do even more work when I was already giving all I could. I was stressed out and suffering from anxiety at the thought of going to work every morning.  

I questioned what I could do for work since teaching was all I knew.  I felt stuck.  So, I sat and waited for a sign.  That sign came in the form of a colleague encouraging me to move to Texas.

I decided to move from New York City to Houston after that one phone call.

One year after quitting my job, and surviving by working multiple jobs, I landed a position as a school leader. I thought that things would be better if I worked outside of the classroom. 

For three years I gave the position my all.  Unfortunately, I was still saying yes to everything my principal asked of me.  I was still working 12-hour days six days a week, still had no social life and was breaking out in hives from the stress. 

I was repeating the same cycle as before just in a new location.

That’s when I said ENOUGH!

Again, I quit.  I started my own educational consulting company. 

As my own boss, I worked from home, set my own hours, and finally developed a social life.

It was everything I said I wanted except…

I built a business around something that felt safe.  

It was a skill I knew I had, but not something I cared to do.  

I eventually got clear on what I really wanted:

  • freedom to work in a way that was ideal for me (at home with my dog or anywhere in the world).
  • to set my hours and have full ownership over my income.
  • to impact the lives of those I worked with.

Being a life coach provided all of the above.

I just had to be brave enough to step outside of the traditional education setting and believe I could be successful.

I decided to shut down the consulting company and be a coach everywhere I went.

I went back to the school district I left. But this time I chose a role that allowed me to be in my purpose, coaching teachers, while working fewer hours, negotiated a raise, and an extra month off!!! Most importantly I went back with a very different attitude. No longer would I play the victim. I set the standard of what I would tolerate from others early on; I respected me, so others had no choice but to do the same.

The more teachers I coached the more I knew that they needed help beyond just how to manage their students and deliver a strong lesson. So I offered them life coaching. I wanted to help them experience the shifts I had and move up in their careers.

I realized how important this work was and how alive I felt when I was being a coach.

The more people I coached the more my confidence in my inevitable success grew.

I decided it was time to quit a job for the last time and go all in on building my coaching business.

Today I fill my days with meaningful work, a complete social calendar, and make a positive impact on those I encounter. I found my purpose, learned to maintain a better work-life balance, and experience more joy and peace of mind because of it.

Coaching transformed my life and I now teach others how they can do the same.

I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping other overworked and stressed-out educators experience the freedom and benefits of having their own coaching business.
