You and I, you, you, and I…

Have you ever noticed how once you start thinking about something, it comes to you over and over?  You think about buying a certain kind of car, and suddenly you notice that car everywhere. You think about getting into shape, and realize everyone around you is talking about his or her workout routine. Whatever the topic is, once it has your mental attention you start hearing about it everywhere?  That’s happening with me and “coaching” right now.

In the past month, I’ve had someone tell me about their experiences with acting class and a coach, another tell me about their great success with a sales coach, and yet another share their experience with a vocal coach. On Facebook and Twitter, my friends are talking about a nutrition coach, personal trainer, a yoga instructor, and the list goes on and on. I’ve even heard business and life coaching discussed on John Tesh Intelligence For Your Life.  Now that’s serious business. WTHuh?

Many of you have approached me for coaching in different areas of your life and business over the years. I’ve said no, or not now, or when I have more time. Well, all that has changed. I have gladly and gratefully surrendered.

I’ve always known deep down that this is a calling for me. From the time I was a young woman, I’ve had to prove myself over and over in a corporate world where women don’t always get an equal voice at the table.  I’ve had to overcome looking young; being dismissed or disregarded by those twice my age who were convinced I could not possibly have anything valuable to add. I’ve had to walk a fine line between being assertive and being perceived as the big “B”. And for many years, in the early days, my absolute fear of failure was the greatest contributing factor to my success. I just never realized back then that someone would seriously want coaching for any of that from me. Now, I realize that not only is it a privilege to share these experiences with you, and as many women as I can possibly reach in my lifetime…it is my OBLIGATION to do so!

So thank you to those of you I am currently coaching – I learn as much, or more, from you as you do from me! For the rest of you, I’m delighted to announce that I will be offering a six-week, virtual, group coaching experience starting in June. I will help you set B-I-G goals, and make you accountable for them. I will encourage you to embrace your bold ideas, and take action NOW. I will provide a spot where women come together, share their stories, and learn from each other. Stay tuned for more details. I CANNOT WAIT! (Sorry, but I gotta shout it! I’m that excited!)
