What's your business, and who are your customers?
I'm a woman's life and wellness coach. I specialize in NLP and transformation coaching, and chronic illness management coaching. At Love Your Life Coaching, I help women unlock their full potential, become unstoppable in their lives and become empowered while living with chronic illnesses. I focus on living with more joy, energy, and fulfillment. Learn to communicate confidently, advocate for yourself, live your purpose, have confidence in yourself, and live a life you truly love.
Tell us about yourself
After suffering from a spinal cord injury, getting diagnosed with arachnoiditis, Cauda Equina Syndrome, and Multiple Sclerosis, losing my mom, and leaving a 13-year marriage. I became an active participant in my own health and life. I got more involved, educated, and invested in a healthy lifestyle. I took charge of every aspect of my life, including working one-on-one with a life coach and reading self-improvement books. I jumped in with both feet and took my life back. I decided that I would fight harder no matter how hard it got. I choose to focus on the good in my life and let it drive me. I worked day and night on my body and mind.
It wasn’t long before my interest in life transformation and health and wellness evolved into a true passion. Then, I ultimately became a Certified NLP Life Coach and trained in Meditation, Nutrition and Diet Planning. No one should be defined by an illness or condition, life circumstance, relationship, or their past. Anyone can live a life they love, and it is my mission to help my clients achieve that!
Being able to help, support, and guide women during these challenging times in their life is so meaningful to me. Having gone through and struggled with some of the challenges, I am very familiar with how it feels when your life changes completely overnight and all of the overwhelming emotions, feeling like you've lost part of yourself, self-doubt, anger, inadequacy, isolation, depression, and more, which give me unique insight and understanding into this world full of chaos and uncertainty that we all live with every day. I am thankful for everything in my life because it has brought me here, and I am able to live my life’s purpose. Helping women create and live a life they love and live it to the fullest.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment is seeing a change in my clients and knowing that I have made a difference in their lives.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
I feel like one of the hardest things about being a business owner is managing my coaching business myself. Managing all my social media accounts and posting videos and content, along with my blog, and working with clients simultaneously. As a solo entrepreneur, it can be overwhelming at times.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Do your research and become an expert in everything about your business.
- Do not stop learning and educating yourself to be the best business owner, coach, or be the best at whatever you do.
- Make sure you love what you do. When you love what you do, you can make a difference in people's lives, and work will become enormously rewarding.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
All my experiences in life, difficult as they were and are, set me on a beautiful path. This path has led me to find my passion for becoming a Women's Life and Health Coach, helping others who are dealing with their own difficult journeys and guiding them to live a life they love.
I developed my coaching style through my experiences and previous work background in behavior modification and disability services, nursing, education in coaching, meditation, and nutrition, and being trained in NLP. I'm able to help my clients get transformations quickly and ultimately start living a life they love to live!
