I remember when I started coaching with Karen I felt completely lost, partially broken and mostly paralyzed from having the ability to do anything that would move me in a forward direction. I was going through the motions of every day...work, home, sleep, repeat. It was a daunting and exhausting cycle. Karen helped me to see things from a different perspective which made life not seem so overwhelming.
I looked forward to our meetings every other week eager to learn what new tools and BS Karen would call me on!! I often walked away with many aha moments and better, healthier ways to deal with my stuff that made it not seem so stressful for me.
My coaching experience has enabled me to stop being so hard on myself. I am more patient and kinder with my thoughts and actions of self-love. I know I am deserving of having anything and everything I want and I am taking steps to get there without feeling like I need to be where I want to be tomorrow. I will get there.
After coaching with Karen I now believe that if I keep taking steps every day, I can achieve whatever it is that I want to achieve in any area of my life. I now have the courage to stand up for myself and speak out when I am not being respected, seen or heard. I take responsibility for all my actions that have put me where I am today and know I can change whatever situation I am in at any given time.
I would recommend coaching with Karen; it really helped me to get unstuck. Sometimes you get tunnel vision and feel like there is no way out. Karen can guide you through the darkness. I feel more positive about the future than I did 6 months ago. I am loving who I am more every day and I have the tools and resources I gained through coaching to keep me moving on my forward path! Thank you for that!!!
Besides being very creative, resourceful and fun, having Karen as a coach produced real momentum and concrete results and I'm still continuing down that vein now that our coaching relationship has ended. In a short period of time I developed a website, sent out mass emails, took a niching workshop, organized my finances, and started solidifying business foundations such as office space and using on-line resources such as Zoom. Also, realized it was time to balance my work with a get away and to re- charge!
I took more risks and got messy and learned that I can experiment with various workshops that I teach and if they no longer suit me, I can move on. That went the same with dating!! Thank you Karen, so wonderful working with you : )
Since working with Karen I have clarified my goals and moving toward achieving them. Finding a meaningful relationship is one of my goals and I have been able to get clear on what I want in a relationship and what my deal breakers are. This has helped me to be more intentional about who I am willing to give my time to and more resilient when it isn’t the right fit. I would recommend coaching with Karen to anyone who feels they can improve their lives but needs help and guidance to dig deeper and be challenged.
Before I started working with Karen as my Life Coach, I felt like things just weren’t going quite right in my life, but I didn’t know why. I had finally moved into the house of my dreams and was in a job that is in the area that I want to be working in. So, I decided to try coaching not really knowing what my end goal was. Karen helped me identify the things in my life that were “OK” but not exactly as I wanted them to be. With her encouragement and support, I was able to cut back my hours at my current job and get up the guts to approach my husband to support me in doing some training to help me move closer to my goal of having my own business. I even approached another local business owner in my community about hiring me part time so I can learn about going into a private practice without having to jump head first into that before I feel ready. I never would have made these changes on my own. I would have just stayed stuck and unhappy without really knowing why. Now, I am able to approach my life and each day with new vigor and a feeling of empowerment. I have the confidence to believe I can achieve my goals...AND change them if things aren’t going quite like I expected. Thank you, Karen! I could not have done it without you!!!
