I am a Professional Coach. Who Do I Serve? That question has been nagging at me, keeping me up at night…And then, it hit me! Duh! What do I specialize in? Career/Life Transitions. Who am I meant to serve? Michael Port, a well-known motivational big thinker asks this of his listeners all the time. He’s very cool and inspiring! www.MichaelPort.com Mid Life women-Most of my clients are…I enjoy working with them, get energized helping discover/uncover new skills, attitudes, meaning & purpose! I use humor & creativity-often, many in this stage-"empty nest moms" or just searching for more meaning & excited to have the time & focus to work on themselves!
I run Coaching Groups and see the women exploring different aspects of their life. Some may return to painting after raising a family, others might take a ceramics class or keep a journal of their personal growth. It is exciting to share these journeys!
I’m speaking on "Transitions" this Sat at Womens Expo- www.womensexpomd.com. I’m looking forward to working with this group of diverse women. Taking C.J. Hayden’s course -Coachpreneur’s Circle- www.coachpreneurs.com She also created Get Clients Now- www.getclientsnow.com and the program I teach www.gethirednow.com We discuss niche and focus. Exactly what I work on with my clients-niche, in terms of area, industry, career that fits for them. I’m always learning & growing & I like to think seeing my journey helps my clients to learn & grow!
