Transformational Life Coaching
I want to write children’s books! Should I quit my job to start my creative business? I want to find the love of my life! I want to find a job that makes me happy! I need to work on my self-confidence so that I can move up at work. Everything looks great on the outside, but I’m feeling really empty inside.
I want to make a difference in the world, but I have no idea what I want to do. I want better work-life balance so that I can spend more time with my family. I want to feel good about my body. I want a better relationship with my husband. I want to be a better boss. I want to be an effective leader.
What about you? How can I help?
I work with women who are either unfulfilled, or stuck in rut, and ready to move into their bold NEXT LEVEL,
OR women who are scared to create the beautiful personal, professional or business life they truly want, STEP into their NOW.
Which one are You?
Are you ready to reach your full potential? Are you ready to unleash your maximum capabilities?
What would you do if you believed anything was possible? Who would you be?
What would your life look like if you finally moved from a place of overwhelm, burnout, or just being stuck?
Are you ready for your next level in your personal and professional life? Are you ready to create the mindset that empowers you to go for what you want, when you want it, and how you want it?
Are you ready for a new relationship with yourself, others, doubt, fear, anxiety, time and money?
Are you tired of waiting until after A, B, and C fall into place to create and live the life you deserve?
Raise your hand if you’ve ever told yourself, “I’ll do it one day.” Whatever “IT” is.
Year after year you find yourself in the same familiar, comfortable place, putting your life off until “one day.”
When the time is right. When the kids graduate from college. When I have enough money. When I have enough time.
When I know what I want to do. When I save enough money. When I lose 10 pounds.
When I find the “One.” When I win the lottery.
“I’m a perfectionist, I have to get it right,” or “I’m a procrastinator. I have to find time.”
It’s like trying to play double Dutch. You dying to hop in and skip yourself silly, but instead you’re hopping on the sidelines, just waiting for the right time to jump in.
Nervous. Scared. Thinking. Assessing. Holding back. Stuck. Waiting…
No worries! I’ve been both women, and I’m here to help.
For my entire 15-year litigation attorney career, I fought hard to avoid my life purpose. It didn’t seem realistic. I had too many other obligations and pressing commitments.
But I promised myself that “One day I’ll quit my job and start my two dream businesses; Design, make and sell fashion clothing, and accessories for women AND become a life coach for women.”
I wanted to create something that allows me to have a positive and direct impact on women around the world. To bring joy into the lives of women from the inside out; my life purpose.
I took a half-hearted, brief step of faith in 2005 with a mini sabbatical to gain clarity from my 80-hour work weeks, and decide what I truly wanted for my life. I spent time enjoying the beautiful sights in Cape Town, South Africa, and started my jewelry design hobby.
I even tried enrolling in a life coaching program in South Africa, but fear + doubt + my inner critic + my crummy money scarcity stories held me back.
So, I returned to the United States to my safe litigation job, and promised myself again that “one day very, very soon,” I’d get the courage to quit and reconnect with my passion and life purpose.
The problem was that every time I opened my calendar to circle “one day,” I couldn’t find it. All I could see were actual dates. That was annoying.
Does this sound or feel familiar?
Your life looks great on the outside, but you’re feeling empty inside.
Do you walk around with an “I’m OK”-mask on? Feeling guilty for even questioning whether you should be happier?
What happened to your big dreams? Before you got stuck. Before you became unfulfilled with the direction of your life. Before you stopped being motivated, challenged or inspired?
Before you settled for a generic version of the good life because at least you have a job and a roof over your head.
You had the perfect vision for your life doing work and play that stimulates you, challenges you, rewards you and brings you joy.
Work and play that is purposeful, passion-driven, that feeds your soul, opens you up to creativity, and gives you confidence and inner peace + joy that makes you sleep well at night.
You have been seeking a way for your passion and uniqueness to have an impact on others, to give back, or make a difference in the world.
Maybe you have been dreaming about starting your own part-time or full-time business;
Maybe you want to create increased intimacy in your romantic relationship;
Maybe you want to finally find love and settle down;
Maybe you want to pursue a creative passion – write a book, learn to sing, learn to paint or learn a new language;
Maybe you want to travel the world;
Maybe you want to feel good naked;
Maybe you want to look good naked;
Maybe you want to pay off your financial debt and finally start saving money;
Maybe you want to create a meaningful life, designed on your own terms.
The good news is that you can! All it takes is a commitment to investing in yourself, and acting by a specified date.
The idea that my dreams would never be goals if I failed to make that commitment never really resonated with me. I was happy to stay in my comfort zone where everyone around me reminded me how lucky I was to have the job of my “dreams.”
So, I kept my mask on.
11 years after that sabbatical, I finally took inventory of my life, quit my job, and chose to step out in faith to uncover my possibilities. The date on the calendar was May 29th, 2016.
So, what made me choose to finally step into my NOW?
I felt like a fraud. I wasn’t living my life in a way that was aligned with my core values. I was tired of lying to myself. I was tired of waking up with knots in my stomach. I wanted to finally meet the real ME. After 40 years, it was time.
It finally hit me. I have one shot. So, I asked myself, “When will NOW be the best time for you to believe you are worthy and deserving of living your best life, MiMi? “When will NOW be the best time to choose to be everything you were created to be?”
And then I broke down and cried.
It took me less than 3 minutes on May 29th, 2016 to decide that I wanted my “one day” bad enough to make it happen right NOW.
There were so many things I wanted to do. I had suddenly unleashed all these repressed passions, desires, hopes, dreams, and a heightened sense of mission and a purpose-driven life.
But the fear + doubt + inner critic + overwhelm + money scarcity beliefs were still loud and strong in mind. I was still burnt-out from my job, and navigating health issues.
So, I prayed for wisdom, ignored my crummy “I don’t have the money or time scarcity stories,” and hired a Transformational Life Coach.
One month later, I had prioritized my health and wellbeing, and gained clarity around what really mattered to me from the inside out. I learned to focus on who I was being rather than what I was doing.
Two months later, I enrolled in a top Life Coach Training Program.
Four months later, I enrolled in regular sewing classes, grew my fashion business from a hobby to four online stores, and increased my average annual fashion revenue by over 700%.
Six months later, I was knee-deep into my five-year action plan, which included creating a 30-Day virtual group coaching program for powerful women like you to choose to step into their NOW.
Today, I’m creating the beautiful life I truly want, and I’m here to serve you powerfully and purposefully.
You too can create your version of the life of your dreams. My vision is to co-create this transformational experience for as many of you amazing women who choose this journey.
I am a transformational life coach trained in both ontological coaching (the study of being) as well as facilitative coaching (goal and project design + strategic action).
I work with smart and successful women to create possibility from the inside out, diving deep beyond the superficial, and creating shifts in limiting beliefs and mindsets that keep them stuck in their personal and professional lives.
My clients are high-performing professional women and creative entrepreneurs who want to make a big impact on the world with their bold visions and goals. I work with them to overcome the hidden limiting beliefs and mental blocks that sabotage their relationships, health and work or business.
I coach the whole woman and not just a specific goal because everything you do and experience in one area of your life affects other areas of your life.
Ontological coaching helps you discover your essence, and show up as your true self in every area of your life. Powerful coaching transforms your relationship to the things that once held you back.
To serve you as best as possible, I work with my own life coach every week, and I invest in my coaching skills daily, weekly and monthly with extensive reading, intensive training programs, and deep transformative inner work.
The deeper the work I do in my own life, the deeper I can go with you as we partner to work together on your vision.
We start with where you are now and where you want to go. Then we identify exactly what is in the way of you getting there. I coach the dialogue that is in the way of you achieving your personal, professional or business goal.
Sometimes that dialogue is your inner critic screaming, “you’re not good enough.”
Sometimes that dialogue is all the evidence you have collected over the years about how you’re not strong enough, or powerful enough, or healthy enough or smart enough or bold enough, or skinny enough.
Sometimes that dialogue is “I don’t have the money” or “I don’t have the time” or “Maybe when the kids graduate” or perhaps, “When it’s the right time” or “It’s too risky.”
All the subconscious mental and emotional blocks, and self-limiting beliefs and stories that sabotage you and hold you back from being your greatest self.
Each woman is unique, and the coaching needs and journey of each of you is different. I meet you where you are and support you to discover your brilliance and power as you work toward your next level or step into your now.
As your transformational life coach, I will stand for you and relate to you as the greatest version of yourself. I hold you accountable for your goals and vision, and challenge you, support you, and provide the tools necessary to get you to your next level.
