How long have you been a student for, in the coaching Institute?
About 22 months and it has been phenomenal, I have loved every moment.
What do you do right now? And what success have you created for yourself as a result of the course?
Right now I have left full-time work and I am coaching full time. I have got a wide range of clients, which I'm loving. Every moment I can wake up and I can balance my family and get straight into it. Through coaching a lot of people on Zoom, it's often easy for me. Certain weeks, I will have five clients on but other days I might do networking or have some time for myself... Now I've got a great balance of my business, which I'm loving. I'm attracting some beautiful clients who I value working with.
"Loving my life and living my dream"
What was going on in your life before TCI? Where were you and how is it different from what you're doing right now?
From the very beginning, I knew that I had this ability to help people. I was helping a lot of people that had an addiction, hence why I wanted to get a qualification... What I didn't realize was that along the way, I actually learned the most amazing thing: how to develop myself, how to grow self-love for me, how to develop as a person.
When I first started, I was working full time, but I took action straight away. On a busy day full of parent-teacher meetings and teaching, I would simply read a page from a book... But I continued to learn as much as possible.
I knew I wanted to build momentum and the minute I got into The Coaching Institute, my commitment to learn and grow grew stronger. I committed to say yes and figured out how. Every single day I committed to doing something for my passion for coaching.
“This is my journey, my vision, and what I wanted for my life.”
How much of a different person are you now to who you were two years ago?
I thought I was a good person two years ago but now I feel personally developed... This is a journey of self-love. To understand it, develop it, and know who I am was just a phenomenal feeling. I didn't realise that self-love and self-trust were going to be something that I could learn.
I have such amazing relationships with people in the community, which has been phenomenal. It is surprising to witness my own growth and see who I am now. I love myself more than ever.
In college, I learned and realized that wow, I'm beautiful and I could tap into that. People would keep saying to me, you look younger, like I'm heading 50! The feeling of allowing it in is beautiful.
“Looking at what I have achieved I feel, Wow! I am loving myself while nurturing a relationship with myself and I want to keep up-leveling. Never even thought this was possible. I want to keep growing and I know there's no end to it.”
What would you say to someone who's watching this? Who's thinking about getting started as a coach, starting their journey with us here at TCI?
Give yourself the gift, and do it. It's beautiful. The best journey of my life
“My training with TCI helped up-level my coaching and improve my strategies. I shared the knowledge I received with my community while connecting with the people I knew from college. My self-doubt was converted to self-trust.”
