Why Coaching?

My why:

When I launched my first business in 2009, it was entirely run on excitement and opportunity. My friends and community were cheering me on at every turn, but it was in the moments when I was all by myself where my inner critic really let me have it. For every enthusiastic customer, successful event, or new business innovation, I had double the limiting beliefs and compelling evidence for why I wasn’t qualified. 
I looked for teachings on how to do it better: I studied Nonviolent Communication, I explored bookkeeping, business planning, and management styles. I worked for a variety of companies, organizations, and teams in management, sales, and direct service. I discovered that it is less about what I know and more about how I learn.  In each role, my key to success was finding a goal worth playing for. 
Training with the Academy of Coaching Excellence has helped me share the value of coaching, companionship, and collaboration — not just through skill but through presence. The lessons I have learned through coaching, mentorship, and teamwork have helped me align my focus with my inner vision. With this, I have been able to set goals, take steps, and celebrate success. I have developed practices that help me focus on what I want instead of my old and familiar insecurities. I have been able to take on new projects that continue to expand my experience and expertise and support my unstoppable curiosity and drive.

"Slam helped me access courage I didn't know I had in order to manifest the shy little dreams I had crawling out of the woodwork."

I would recommend this course for anyone starting any major new project, or wanting help in navigating a major life change."
