Strangely, I was so passionate [about what I was doing], that I barely noticed how little sleep I was getting. I was burning the candle at both ends, juggling my full-time job and completing school work every evening, caring for my three grandchildren, doing house renovations, and doing as much learning at The Coaching Institute as I could.
Amazingly, I still had energy; a newfound energy and passion.
I realised where my true passion was. It was to coach and empower others, and thanks to the life coaching courses at the TCI I was able to share my new learnings, and make a difference to the lives of the many young people I had seen battle with anxiety and other issues.
I had always wondered how I could do more to help the parents I came across on a daily basis, many who were crying out for help, not knowing how to support or manage their child.
I began to visualise myself helping these people outside the limits of the school system. So I continued to push myself, test and measure. After being with The Coaching Institute for four months, I decided that if I could sign up a paying client, my vision might be possible.
I ran a workshop a few weeks after joining— then voila, I signed up my first paying client.
I can’t explain how excited I was. And—gosh —I've given her awesome value. She is still my client! She is an amazing woman who has come such a long way, as I have I. I’m so proud of that.
