Who says women can’t have a successful family AND a successful career?
At TCI we believe that it takes passion to truly inspire the extraordinary through coaching... and who are more passionate, determined, and inspiring than mums? Today I was reading through some of TCI coaches’ stories looking for inspiration, and sure enough, there are some incredible women out there leading incredible lives… Success AND family!

“The Bigger Picture: Vivid, Bright and Expanding Daily!”
“I am a mother to two young boys. My journey into parenting had felt like one challenge after another. Our first son was born with a deformity, our second son arrived via an extremely painful and high-risk pregnancy, and both children suffered ongoing health issues…”
“One day I realised I needed to make some changes, for myself and for the good of my family. I knew I wanted to challenge myself to continue growing and becoming the best version of me. Deciding to sign up to the Credentialed Practitioner of Coaching course, was for me the pathway to beginning my own personal development, and learning how to more serve others”
“In the last 10 days I have submitted my manuscript of just under 43,000 words for my book “Trust Your Melody” to my editor…Not only that but my article has been picked up by several of the biggest charities in the world relating to my sons deformity, and shared with the thousands of families they support. From not speaking up to having an international voice!”
“Learning that I have choices in every moment, and uncovering what contribution and growth mean to me has been a huge influence. Overall, it has been about taking one small step at a time. With a 1 & 3 year old running around the house, progress can at times feel very slow, but the bigger picture is vivid and bright and expanding daily. Even more than that, I know I can fulfil it.”

“My investment in TCI is worth more than the weight in gold!”
“Before I started my journey with TCI I worked in roles that I had no passion in, I was basically trying to survive each day at work. I then fell pregnant with my beautiful boy and soon after I had him I fell pregnant again with my daughter… On delivery of my daughter I almost lost my life I suffered post-traumatic stress and of course pain for the many things I had loss.”
“My desperation to overcome my pain and struggle is how I started to look for more in life, from this I found The Coaching Institute… The learnings of how to think outside our boundary conditions, be a better human being and a leader has assisted us in creating, growing and maintaining our team and providing a professional service to our clientele.”
“A few things that really stick out for me are the teachings in how to deal with fear because there is a lot of it in business, know who you are and what you stand for and beliefs. We dared to dream and we still dare to believe we will become greater then what we already are.”

“Didn’t Really Know What the Word 'More' Meant to Me, I Just Simply Knew that I Wanted It!”
“I am a single parent working full time, and solely raising a 7 year old. I have a mortgage, I was always busy doing ‘stuff’ and I was just making ends meet, which ultimately meant I was living a pretty mediocre life (of course I didn’t know that at the time). I wanted so much more for my daughter and wanted so much more for myself. I just didn’t know how...”
“That was of course until my saving grace (kick in the pants) through the form of a phone call came from an exceptional man in the WOW team, Matt. The life transforming conversation.”
“I am using my previous successes in Health and Wellbeing through Personal Training in Fitness, I am able to draw on that experience and work with my clients to achieve their ultimate state of wellbeing.”
“I am now able to achieve all that I set out for myself in a resourceful way. I am also an exceptional mother because of it, and am creating shifts in my daughter to ensure she grows into a resilient adult. It has made me a more patient and supportive daughter to my parents who are also modelling me with their friends and, I am an even better friend to all of the wonderful people in my life right now.”

“I Have A Voice and TCI Helped Me Find It!”
“If memory serves I found TCI through an ad in the paper – so old school! This was all in the days before Facebook too…”
“Just to know I wasn’t alone on my quest was the best thing.”
“I have a background in Banking, Recruitment and Training. I loved working for the Bank. I thought they loved me too – but when corporate restructures happen – you can still get shown the door. Life happened along the way though – my new found enthusiasm for life saw me have a baby at 39 years of age. The third person I called when I found out I was pregnant was at TCI.”
“My business name is ‘Modern Etiquette’ – get noticed for all the right reasons! I work with my clients to achieve clear, confident and charismatic communication – of their brand and their personality. This niche enables me to utilise my coaching, NLP, Meta, ESIP Profiling tools and my past experience!”
“I attribute my success to finally doing the do. I have all my balls up in the air along with the spinning plates - and that’s great. If one drops, I have others. Keep moving and follow up! Value your time – be strategic yet genuine as you build your networks. Say yes because you can figure out how.”
“Call the WOW team–they really do want to hear from you.”
