I don't think anybody dreams about being a Life Coach as a kid. I'd like to meet the anomaly if he or she exists. About four years ago, I took a spiritual gifts test and learned "exhortation" was my specialty. If you need a dictionary to look up that word, so did it. It means encouragement.
It was a little surprising since I didn't have a ton of encouragement growing up. I was the middle child, the weird one who liked music, art, and anything that couldn't be seen. I was fascinated by the magic and wonder of the world. So, how does someone who didn't get encouragement the right person for the job? The answer was obvious as soon as I asked the question. Who better to encourage than the one who didn't receive much of it.
For the next two years, I sought out ways to use it. When I finally landed on life coaching, I did an internet search for a school. The Life Purpose Institute was a no brainer and for the next three months, I was online learning. In July of 2018, I got my certification.
I've been extremely fortunate and grateful this business has worked out well. But I also know it was already ordained. I've had a lot of clients in the past three years ranging from 16 to 70 years old. The connection I've had with each is uncanny. And, each has taught me something and helped me grow while I've helped them do the same.
One side note, they say in Life Coaching school to pick a niche because you won't make it just as a "life coach." I'm the anomaly. I have more clients in just the life coaching arena versus Career. I'm happy, however, doing both. I'm even more excited to be offering Happiness Coaching. I just. spent 5 weeks getting my certification in that area. My favorite part of working with any client is literally when I get to do what's called "honoring the client." A phrase that simply means encouraging.
I don't believe in coincidences. If you pay even the smallest bit of attention in life, you start to notice patterns or themes. My life and career coaching in Las Vegas helps you tap into that and sort out the message. And specifically as a career coach in Las Vegas, I've worked hard and built up connections in this area to provide you with best services to improve or advance your professional life.
You don't just get to be the goofy, community-oriented morning reporter of a number 1 newscast You create that path. In my life coaching business, I help you move you toward your goals and dreams. And give you some VIP tips in the process.
I've created and performed in a band, written and published two books, launched two successful small businesses and that's only half of it. When someone tells me I can't do something, I prove them wrong. Now I'm helping you do the same thing through my life and career coaching. The first appointment is free.
