I always wanted to be a coach,
but I didn't always know it.
I love people and have always wanted to help them. I am an only child who grew up in a traditional family with my parents and grandmother. I was fortunate to have aunts, uncles, and cousins who were like brothers. I was loved, and I knew it.
When I grew up and dated, I met my husband and married young. My role was to be a wife and mother. Period. I embraced both roles and loved my life because I saw my role clearly defined. I was a caregiver to my family and eventually a caretaker for my mother.
Fast forward a few years. The kids grew up and moved on, Mom passed on. Hubby had his career and hobbies that kept him busy. I felt lost, abandoned, and useless. Was this all there is to life?
I worked at quite a few "jobs". Mostly customer service in nature due to my love of people. I never felt fully satisfied with the work, but I always loved the people.
A strength of mine is my ability to connect quickly and easily with most everyone I meet. I love learning stories, I love learning about their lives, and understanding what makes them tick. I was a nonjudgemental sounding board, and I loved it.
This encouraged me to look into coaching for a living. I started researching how to achieve this and was quickly overwhelmed. So what did I do? I hired a coach.
I told her my story, told her I want to be a coach, but I didn't know how to do it alone. Working with her helped me move from being stuck, to launching my own coaching business.
I found a school, graduated, and am now working in a field that allows me to work with clients that I love, helping them to move forward towards their goals, like my coach helped me.
The biggest takeaway from my own personal journey is that coaching is movement forward, no matter how big or small the steps. Do you need to move forward? Do you need accountability and support?
