Coach Training: How I Became a Coach

There you are, standing at the edge of the cliff, contemplating your next move.

You know you can’t go back, but it scares the crap out of you to think about taking that leap.
It’s the great big unknown.

It beckons you forward, but yet your feet feel like they are stuck in the mud.

Do you know this feeling?
I sure do.
Flashback to 2007.
New York City.
Corporate America.
6-figure income.
Black suits.
Business travel.
Trip to Asia.
No kids.

That essentially described my life in 2007, before I made the leap into coaching and entrepreneurship.

I’ll never forget receiving these sizable bonus checks in my job of $5,000, $10,000, $20,000 and feeling happy about the money, but sad about my career.
I felt like I was stuck, trapped, and completely burned out.
What was I supposed to do?
How was I going to reinvent myself for the 3rd time in my career?
Why couldn’t I simply be satisfied?
Those questions plagued me for years up to that point.

I finally surrendered … by quitting my job one cold November day at the tail end of a 200-hour yoga teacher training course.

Naked. That’s how I felt. Stripped down to the bare essentials, I vowed to move forward honestly and using Spirit as my guide.
It was at once liberating and terrifying.
Can you feel me on this?

I was so lost in my career.

Like a boat, lost at sea.
I needed an anchor.
That lifeline came in the form of a person when she told me about her work that she loved.
Work that I had been doing my entire life without me being conscious of it.

What was this work? COACHING.

As soon as I discovered this field, it felt like I came HOME.
Home into my heart.
Home into my calling.
Home into the knowing that coaches act as midwives for our clients and students as they birth their biggest dreams.
It’s the ultimate blessing to be a coach, to create space for my people, to ask questions and to serve by conducting coach training.

My clients are saying YES to sailing away from the safe harbor and doing BIG things like:

Hosting a big giveaway to grow her list + help more people
Starting a free Facebook group to serve her tribe
Paying a deposit to host a kickass workshop in an awesome venue
Writing her story + healing the past
Launching a podcast
Giving a TED talk
Buying a URL that is SOOO hot + the total homebase of her growing online empire
All of these gals are COACHES.
I LOVE being a coach + guide to fellow spiritual coaches.
It’s truly, truly fantastic.
A dream come true helping these gals make that LEAP across the abyss into their next chapter in their spiritual business and gorgeous life.
How about you?
Are you ready for massive shifts in 2016?

Here’s what you need to know:

You’re not alone.
Anytime change is happening, the Ego FREAKS OUT and wants to keep you small.
It takes a lot of guts to walk away from an “okay” life that isn’t you and say YES to your destiny.
Being a coach + leader to a tribe that you adore is the cat’s meow.
Your time is now. Do not waste another day.

Your destiny is calling.

It’s time to say yes to your livelihood as a COACH.
“When you have come to the edge of all light that you know and are about to drop off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.” – Patrick Overton
Fly high, girl. Fly high.
