I can’t believe it’s been more than two months since I’ve written here! I’ve missed you guys so I thought I would post an update…
Earlier this week I was on the ICA alumni call and we were all sharing one thing about ourselves that we wanted the other coaches to know about where we are at. The one thing that really struck me was how almost everyone had shifted and changed their focus and niche since graduation. What a relief to know that I’m not alone in the struggle to determine who I am here to serve!
This past summer truly has been a soul-searching-journey for me. I actually began the summer tightly niched and confident. Through a series of events I lost access to the confidence and each month I broadened my focus to attract more clients. What I learned is that moving away from my calling feels terrible! And guess what? I’m right back at my original niche serving parents of teens and tweens! The journey away from my calling was so valuable because I learned what it feels like and how to return to it. Today my confidence has returned and I am excited to share with you what I am investing my energy in:
I have just finished re-vamping my website and I absolutely love it! It simply feels right. I invite you to check it out and email me your feedforward (focused on what’s working).
I created this site to share my love for photography and to pass along tid-bits of information to support parents through the teen years. I like to post here daily and I share a lot about my personal process, what I am going through, and how I get through it. Even if you aren’t a parent, there is a lot of valuable information about family and relationships.
The Coaching Quiz
This is a tool for people to use to find out if coaching is right for them. I would love for you to take the quiz and provide me with your awesome insights!
Change the World Community
Coach Jean Paul invited me to join Zaadz, which is all about connecting people who want to change the world! I totally love it and invite you to join as well. If you do, be sure to add me as a friend :~)
American Chronicle Writer
I am a contributing writer to the American Chronicle. It is so cool to get my message out to others who might not have even heard of coaching before!
Free Coaching On-line Group for Parents of Teens & Tweens
I just created an on-line group for parents of teens and tweens to receive and offer support, connect with other parents, and build a database of resources. This is one of my newest projects and I’m looking forward to growing it.
As you can see I have a lot going on! I have found that staying connected to other ICA coaches is an integral part of my support system, coming up with new ideas, and furthering my development. I invite you to attend our weekly ICA alumni coffee break calls and monthly alumni calls hosted by Karen Cappello (please see the ICA bulletin and calendar for details).
Oh and speaking of Karen Cappello, I am thoroughly enjoying and reaping the benefits of being a part of one of her coaching groups. It is absolutely amazing and my experience with the group is one of the leading factors in my recent growth spurt and development. One of the best parts of this experience is that I am learning how to facilitate and lead coaching groups myself. It is similar to our classes at ICA, but at a deeper level.
Well, it’s been nice reconnecting with you! I invite you to post a comment with an update on where you are at. Although I’m not sure when I will be posting here again, I do know that I enjoy connecting with all of you. I look forward to continuing to learn and grow together.
