If you’re just starting out on your life coaching journey and you aren’t sure of who you might want to work with or who your ideal client is, please don’t panic. Part of the beautiful process of becoming and unbecoming is learning who it is that you are here to serve. And of course, it’s an ever evolving piece, just as you grow and evolve, so too will your ideal client. My advice when it feels overwhelming and clouded my darling, is to simply come back to your heart. Place a hand over your chest, focus on your breathing and listen. You have all the answers you need inside you to work out all the necessary pieces as you step up towards those big beautiful dreams honey.
I am constantly learning, seeking new information and evolving in all areas of my life. I honestly do not feel that we ever reach a point where we are all done and can hang our hats up, so to speak. I think it is this openness and growth mindset that has and continues to help me evolve and grow both as a coach and within my business. This mindset also keeps me humble and connected to my why and my mission, which is bigger than just me. It is about the people i serve and connect with. The gentle yet powerful flow on effect this work has and that in and of itself energises and spurs me on to always keep growing, learning and being the very best coach that i can be.
It is important to me that i am present, connected and any conversation or interaction be genuine, powerful and for that person to feel more listened too and heard than ever before.
I am not afraid to lean in to the discomfort of growth, in fact i now seek that edge.
I am not afraid to give things a go and then change route if it does not feel aligned and in integrity. And being in integrity is the determining factor and guiding light for me always.
I am not afraid to get it wrong which sometimes i have and i am sure i will, it is about being in the ring as Brene Brown speaks of so eloquently.
I am not afraid to back myself and this has been a journey throughout my business. It has guided me to be more of myself and bring that in to all that i do. It has guided me to learn that my intuition and inner guidance system is the best business tool i could ever have and will ever have.
So for me, i attest my beautiful business growth and success to using integrity and intuition as the compass and always maintaining a willingness to learn and an openness for things to look different than i thought they would, and that this is absolutely okay, as long as it feels right and in integrity.
One of the very first achievements for me within my biz was becoming booked out. Now i know that those two little words mean different things to different people. For me it affirmed that my work was speaking for itself and that was and still means the world and is of the utmost importance to me and a key factor in how i do business.
So i went about my biz and did the things, shared from my heart, connected with people, leaned in, showed up - and then one day i realised that i was in fact booked out. And it was one of those moments in my coaching journey where i was so deeply grateful that i became overwhelmed with emotion and the tears just flowed (which i admit, they often do).
I never have taken it lightly when someone decides to work with me, i know the level of devotion they bring and it is a privilege to guide them to live all the details of their devotion and in the process for them to be more of who they really are.
