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

Below is a comprehensive walk-through of the many questions you might have, with detailed answers for each. Please read it in it’s entirety to understand what Living Out Goals is all about.

How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a life coach?

To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting “compelling story”, that brought me to where I am today – coaching people like you on exactly what to do to experience more joy, peace, and balance in their lives as a busy professional. 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 had horrible managers who were disrespectful and made me question my self-worth. 

I was torn and confused.  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.

After months of inaction I decided to move across the country from New York City to Houston after one phone call and said I’d figure out the details later. 

Well that took months of part time work, living in someone else’s home office, and starting over in a new city with no friends.

One year after quitting my job I landed a position I wanted as a school leader.  For three years I gave the position my all.  Unfortunately, I was still saying yes to everything my supervisor 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 freelancing using the skills I had.  As my own boss I got to say goodbye to all the things I hated about my job, I got to work from home and set my own hours, I got to take control 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.  Each day I had to give myself a pep talk to complete the work.  I didn’t think about the fact that I would have to market my skills and make offers to do more of this work that I wasn’t excited about.  I spent a year wishing I was doing something else.

The real issue was that I repeated a pattern of working myself to the point of burn out and would quit thinking another job would be the solution. But I was the constant in all of those jobs and could track this habit of overworking back to the age of fifteen!

Never had I considered what I was passionate about that I would enjoy doing.  Had I spent time thinking about what I really loved and where I ultimately wanted to be before quitting my job I would have saved myself a lot of stress, time, and energy. 

I eventually got clear on what I really wanted out of my career and life. And it wasn’t only about my career success but real fulfillment.  I went full force in making my internal desires match my external reality. I did the deep mental work on identifying my purpose. I learned to say no, valued my time and made others respect it, I made doing the things I enjoy and spending time with those that matter a priority. I transformed my relationship with work and went from feeling like it was something I had to do, to something I woke up excited to do each day.

Just to prove that the internal shifts were real, I went back to the school district I left. But this time I chose a role that allowed me to be in my purpose, negotiated a $10,000 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.

Today I manage to 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.

I now teach women how they can do the same. I’ve watched their confidence and outlook on their jobs transformed and watched their social lives skyrocket too! I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping other overworked and stressed out career women to achieve success in the areas they most desire, change careers or regain the love and passion they once had for their profession.

Since then, I’ve worked with many private clients, spoken in front of countless groups: I live my dream of waking up inspired to do work I love and live my purpose; and I have created Purpose, Balance & Bliss, a series of seven steps every busy career woman needs to apply to achieve a more fulfilling and balanced life.

Who are your clients?

I work with people just like you who are experiencing high levels of work stress and are on the verge of burnout due to their all-consuming careers. They thought that climbing the success ladder would make them happy but are now questioning if there is more to life. My clients often can’t remember the last time they took a vacation, a day off or time to enjoy themselves. They are constantly thinking about work and see their personal lives are suffering as a result.

  • Career Changers
  • Educational Leaders
  • Social Workers
  • Managers/ Supervisors
  • Aspiring Entrepreneurs
  • Corporate Professionals
  • Health Care Professionals
  • Freelancers and Creatives
  • People Pleasers and Perfectionist
  • Seasoned Professionals stuck in a rut

What makes you different from other “life coaches?”

Although we will occasionally touch upon time management and other “business coach-y” things, you have me as a Purpose, Balance & Bliss expert and consultant. I work on the inner and outer principals for success and look at your life and your relationships from a holistic perspective. What that means to you is that you get a wise-sage-meets-kick-butt authentic life and career coach. I’m also very spiritual and I don’t pretend to hide it either. Because I’m not delicate, you’ll always get a straight to the point quick and honest response from me.

I’m concerned with how to get you in a better mental state fast and improve all aspects of your life while helping you reduce work stress and enjoying life more.  You may not like what I have to tell you – but you can be sure I will always tell you the truth. The truth about what’s standing in the way of your success and how to get rid of it FAST so you can start getting results in record time (and I throw in a healthy dose of humor and inspiration, which always helps!). {Tweak this part with a description of your coaching style}

What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?

The Purpose, Balance & Bliss ™ workshops, products and programs were created for people who are absolutely excited and dead serious about transforming their current relationship with their jobs and seek a more fulfilling life in and outside of work. This means not running around all day long, beating yourself up anymore saying: “I have no control of that” or “I can’t because I have to work.” They were created for you to put systems in place within a few months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually lead you to loving your job again or transitioning out to a new one, a deeper sense of self-worth and better relationships.  

Being an action taker myself, I’m known to work best with other determined go-getters, people who are committed to their success no matter what, who are super-ready to implement change and just want to know exactly what steps to take to create more balance in their lives.  My clients often tell me – “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it!” Consider what you’ll do with me to be a high-octane crash course on everything you need to know to make your work more enjoyable and conducive to the lifestyle you want. You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: enjoying work and loving life again.

For what type of professionals are your programs NOT going to work?

Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for (It wouldn’t be fair to them). The Purpose, Balance & Bliss ™  programs are NOT for those who have no money coming in and are financially desperate, at least not right away. It’s been my experience that people in financial crisis do not trust the recommendations I give them and do not do the work (probably because they spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get next month’s rent check or mortgage payment). If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another. Do yourself (3) favors:

1. Get some money coming in with a full-time or part-time job at the very least, and then call me. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your mind enough to focus on your {your signature system} assignments and the BIG picture. Once you start gaining clarity and making progress towards your goal as a result of our work, you can then start seeking employment that lights you up inside. Whether that’s focusing on your own business or transition to the position/industry you really want.

2. Sign up for the free 10 Steps Goal Crushing Guide. The free information will get you started towards making progress towards your goals until you’re ready to work with me one-on-one.

3. Make a point to read the “Goal Getters” bi-weekly tip in my newsletter. The tips are sent every other week and will give you LOTS to think about. Doing these three things will really help you get primed for our work.

When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get you started (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me). Other types of personalities I won’t work with (without exception) are the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?

What exactly is the Purpose, Balance & Bliss ™ system and what does it include?

Here’s what the System gets you to do:

Get Clarity– We work together to get you clear on what a fulfilling life is to you, help you discover your purpose and determine a goal for our time together.

Designing a Plan– We outline a plan to help you reach your ultimate goal.  We’ll look at what you should be focusing on to move forward and the actions you need to be taking each day to leverage your time, effectiveness and fill your tank up so that you show up as the best version of yourself.

Uncovering Resistance– You might already know what you need to be doing yet are still struggling in procrastination, feeling stuck and spinning in circles. You’ll be learning proven techniques for breaking through your inner resistance, self-doubt, fear, anxiety and all of that “stuff” that keeps you playing small so that you can begin taking action towards transitioning to the next phase of your career.

Making a Mental Shift– You’ll learn to break through your liming beliefs and subconscious blocks.  I’m going to show you how to move through your emotions so you can move forward with confidence and clarity in your life. You will learn to set up mental triggers for consistent results for staying motivated and having positive momentum.

Setting the New Standard– You set new boundaries for work and your personal life so that you can stop stressing and feeling overwhelmed. This often comes from trying to be everything to everyone and putting your needs last. Whether you are living your life for your kids, your bosses, your parents – there is no concept of self-love when you live for others. Stop being the last one on your list of priorities.

Finding Bliss– I teach you to connect to those things that light you up and help you implement changes that will lead to more joy in your life. You’ll reconnect with your passions.  This is called HAPPY and fulfilled.

Celebrate Success-This is where you enjoy all the fruits of your labor and notice that the changes you have made are shifting your reality. You’ll celebrate what shows up so you can pave the way for even more success! Your confidence will sky rocket as you consistently produce results over and over again!

Does this really work?

Yes! The result of our work is an approach to shifting your mindset so you value yourself and teach others how to do the same. You’ll learn to value your time and hold others to the same standard resulting in more time to pursue your purpose, seek employment that lights you up, work on your own business and make the transition to entrepreneur, make time to nurture your mind and body, enjoy enhanced relationships with those that matter most in your life, explore activities that bring you joy, and maintain a peaceful state of mind in midst of chaos.

Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?

Yes, I encourage you to! Please go to the Client Testimonials page and read all of them. See which ones you feel drawn to, either because the person has gotten the results you want to get too, or perhaps because that person is in a similar situation. Then feel free to reach out to them via our Facebook group and ask what they got from working with me and my programs.

How quickly can I expect results?

That depends on how quickly you can make those inner shifts. Some clients are ready to go and own their power to create the changes they want to see in a very short time frame, sometimes even a few weeks while others have a bit more work to do first. It also depends on your level of consistency in implementing the changes discussed.

How can I guarantee myself that I make the shift to a fulfilling life, in record time?

Do all your homework. Be totally committed to your success. Understand that this is a process, a proven one, that works if you take action and implement all of the steps. All my clients who have diligently applied every step of Purpose, Balance & Bliss ™ have successfully regained control of their careers, established new standards for themselves, transitioned into new positions or entrepreneurship, strengthened their relationships, increased confidence and experience more joy, in much less time than they would have on their own AND have truly found what it means to live a fulfilling life on their own terms.
