My vision is a world in which women never feel small, are always in control of their own destiny, live without boundaries, and lead with love.
My clients constantly inspire me. I often feel like my job is to give people seeds and to guide them in planting and tending them into a beautiful garden. I love watching them grow beautiful things in their life. Most people are so driven and willing; they just need the seeds and a little guidance. THEY do the work, THEY put in the time, and I am always awestruck by the beauty that results.
Sometimes even I wonder how I got here. This is the nutshell, of the nutshell version.
I wasn’t born knowing I would become a life coach. I thought maybe a dancer, in the theatre, or maybe the president. I certainly didn’t think -Life Coach-. Probably because of my blue-collar and turbulent raising. Let’s just say my family wasn’t ever focused on self-actualization.
I was raised to be tough and hard and was ashamed on my marshmallow center and I imitated “tough” and “hard” as best I could. I got pretty good at it. I left the alcoholic home I was raised in before I finished high school. I grew up fast, kept my nose clean, and worked my ass off. Years later, my husband (then boyfriend) showed me truly unconditional love, helped me drop the chip that was firmly on my shoulder, and knocked down the tough/hard/angry façade. I learned my authenticity and stood as my own woman. God, I love that man.
During my service in the Air Force and DoD, I realized I’m pretty darned good at troubleshooting people problems. I fully embraced my new fearlessly authentic self and my puddle-of-goo side. I got to explore through teaching, mentoring, and coaching how I could help individuals and teams.
I love helping incredible people do better and succeed. I love seeing them fulfill potential and feel with them incredible pride when they get an award, promotion, or exceeded even their expectations. During this time I realized that helping others become excellent was where I belonged.
I joke that “hard work” is my life’s proof. Okay, half joke. I work really hard. I believe very deeply in human potential and the incredible power in having someone in your corner. Anything is possible when you have the right tools, resources, and support. Women on a mission are my people. The greatest thing I can do in my life is to lift another person up.
So, I believe in your potential,
and you should believe in it too.
Oh, and Cassie says “Hi!”
