Does this sound familiar?

“Before succumbing to chronic fatigue, doubt and my inner critic encouraged my overthinking of everything. Overwhelm invited indulging in busyness, over-researching, and shopping sprees for needless things. Striving for perfection and making everyone happy nearly sucked the life out of me by forgetting to think about me. Black clouds hovered above me as I questioned everything I did. I couldn’t figure out ...

    A few episodes ago, we discussed integrity in our coaching businesses. I believe it is of the utmost importance to uphold a high level of integrity and trustworthiness in our coaching practices, not only for ourselves and for our clients, but for the industry as a whole. Upholding acceptable practices includes not only avoiding unacceptable practices but also being intentional to choose and implement good, quality procedures and po...

    While you build your business, creating connections and community is an integral part of success. Community is two-fold: connections with your clients and connections for your business. While independence and self-direction is a mainstay of coaching businesses, it is important to have community as well. It can be tempting, or you may even feel pressured, to do everything alone, to figure everything out yourself. But a powerful supp...

    The coaching world has expanded and showing people the value is easier than ever. Most potential clients already possess some knowledge of the value of coaching. I see this as a huge advantage. You can spend less time educating people on the value and more time standing out in your unique way. However, I still see many coaches struggling with hesitancy and insecurity around the topic of their offer. 

    Do you have thoughts of doubt t...

    Oftentimes, thoughts creep in that we don’t realize are affecting us in a negative way. One common example is the myth, “I ought to be able to figure all this out on my own”. Thoughts like that not only place massive amounts of pressure on us, they can hinder us from growth. But the reality is that there is a lot to learn. We are all expanding our knowledge, our skill sets, our mindsets. Allow yourself to embrace that process and l...

    To build self-trust as we build our businesses, we need to take a look at ourselves, where we are in our personal lives, and how circumstances can bring challenges. However, taking care of ourselves and carving out time to focus on our goals can be nearly impossible at times. But when you know yourself more deeply, when you hang in there and don’t give up, when you show up and do the work -- you cannot fail. You may need to go slow...

    Ethics and integrity are paramount to a reputable coaching business and quality coaching. Due to very limited regulations, we technically have the freedom to adapt our style and the tools we use as we see fit. Unfortunately this freedom can be abused and give our industry a bad name. Coaches can get sloppy, dive into areas they aren’t qualified to help, not uphold confidentiality, or not respect materials they are using. This means...

    The relevance of shame and the effects of shame are impactful regardless of the type of coaching you do. On the surface, it may not seem applicable to some coaching but once you recognize it, the connection becomes clear. Shame can influence a wide arc of thought and behavior patterns, and everyone has a degree of shame. Because no one is immune, the goal is not to avoid shame but rather to become shame resilient.

    Uncertainty creates a vague, dark cloud of confusion. It may be uncertainty in your coaching program or the direction you should take.
