I started my Journey with The Coaching Institute back in June 2015.
I was a single parent of 3 young children, searching for more. Searching for a way to provide for my children, get back into the work force and for the first time wanting to do something aligned with my passion of helping others. What I didn’t realize was just how important this journey was going to be, how much it would affect my family and those around me... and just how much I really needed this change.
I knew my goal of starting a Coaching business, I knew I wanted to help others, I knew I had both talent and passion driving me. What I didn’t know was how to love myself, how to embrace failure, push through challenges and see my full potential.
TCI taught me so much more than how to run a successful Coaching business... It taught me how to live again. When I began I was exhausted in my life. I was putting on a daily act being the positive person I was always known for. I was taking care of my family, and resenting being “stuck” on a path I didn’t want to be on.
No one saw the moments of despair I felt, the moments I spent in tears on my floor, confused, angry and believing that this is all there would be.
I dove into the Coaching firstly as a way to earn an income and kept myself ‘busy’ doing something I was ‘good at’.
And then I learned so much more... piece by piece I started to strip back the story I had been telling myself for years and began finding my authentic self. I discovered and healed years of hurt, years of telling myself I wasn’t worthy, good enough or loved. I began to connect with a part of myself that had been locked inside... and that’s when I realized this was so much more than starting up a business. This was about falling in love with me. This was about trusting myself, believing I can and will succeed.
Thanks to the support of Mentors, Fellow Coaches and the team at TCI I blossomed, and as I did my business naturally followed.
I now get the privilege of having the most amazing clients, who are also learning the importance of self love. Together we grow, and discover how to experience life with passion.
My whole life has changed and I am so grateful for the support and guidance I received from TCI. I am happy; I have a purpose, I LOVE what I do every day... I no longer live a life I want to escape from, and now live a life I am joyful to wake up to each and every day.
