About the Episode:

When I was first introduced to coaching (feels like forever ago), I had no idea what it was, and I was a bit resistant to the concept.

Since I didn’t know what it was I had a bunch of misconceptions.

I thought I had to legitimately be broken or something needed to be wrong in my life to benefit from coaching. Plus, I thought my life was just fine as it was, so why would I need coaching?

Here's what I realized.

First, no one needs coaching, because no one is broken or needs to be fixed.

Second, you don't know what you don't know. Once I dipped my toe into the coaching pool, my world view was totally shattered for the better. And, every part of my life improved, my marriage, my relationship with my kids, my career trajectory, my health…

Third, there are very few things in the world that have a sustained and profound effect on who you are. For me, I'd say there was the me before I got married and the me after, the me before I had kids and the me after, and the me before coaching and the me after.

Going from resisting coaching to embracing how it's improved every part of my life was a journey. One that many aren't familiar with.

So, this month on the podcast, we're doing a 3 part series to introduce you to the transformative power of coaching.

You'll hear my story, where I get super real and vulnerable about my struggles and how coaching helped me overcome them.

And then you get to meet two of my clients and learn from their experiences.

Whether you’re a coaching novice or an expert, I invite you to listen to these episodes as they'll give you a real and honest look into coaching (and a sneak peek into my unique style of coaching).
