My Story:Been There, Done That
One of the benefits my clients receive from me as a coach is that I have been around the block a zillion times and have learned many lessons the hard way- by trial and lots of errors.Although I realize that my clients may need to do some of their own suffering to get what they want from life, I now believe that life is meant to be easy and fun.I receive great joy in helping my clients learn, grow and succeed without years of struggle.Coaching is a process that accelerates success, and you can count on me to be there 200%.As a coach, I am not here to tell you what to do, but to be a powerful beacon shining the light on YOU. You might recognize yourself in some of my struggles below:
Struggled Young and Overcame Obstacles: I grew up poor, one of seven children, in Miami, Florida. Our family home was burned down when I was 5 years old and I had to live with a neighbor and wear boy's clothes for a year before our family was reunited. I was raped by a neighborhood teenager at age 6. Our family moved six times before I was 18, causing me to have to make new friends and learn new environments.Life was tough, although I loved my family and can recall many, many happy times. I understand hard times and I appreciate what it takes to move on.
Made Mistakes and Made Course Corrections: Pregnant too young; married and divorced twice; single parent of three children; worked full time while putting self through college- taking 15 years to earn my B.A. degree; lost $$$ in stock market crashes- twice; worked too long for abusive bosses and even got myself fired when I got my first computer (having the ability to say what you want easily on paper is not always a good idea).
Moved Up the Ladder Quickly:After I graduated from college, I got my first -real- manager job and -real- salary; over the next 6 years I worked in progressively more responsible positions, in different industries, and tripled my salary, while rising to a VP level in a national company. I love helping others move up too.
Success:Living a Dream Life:I married the love of my life (Chuck) , blended our 5 kids (and now 11 grandchildren) and have been happily married for 37 years.Yearning for more flexibility and freedom, we moved to a small foothill town, and each started our own businesses in 1991. I have been loving my life ever since. Sharing love of adventure with my husband, we have travelled the world (Hong Kong, Italy, France, Canada), circled Denali and cycled California I find great joy in helping my clients reclaim their peace and ignite their passion so they too can live their dreams.
