We are always evolving.
As we do so, there are growing pains. There are setbacks. Times when you feel confident in what you're doing. Times when you wonder what in the hell you are doing.
When I started Get To It Life Coaching roughly three years ago, I had a vision of it taking off easily. Not effortlessly, mind you, but I felt in my heart that this was a service that I could provide to assist people with their goals. As a coach of various sports over a 20-year span, I thought this was a natural fit and that I would be incredibly busy.
Not so fast, my friend. What's interesting about life coaching is that there aren't any credentials for it. Even though I felt like my coaching, teaching, and school counseling would be enough for people, the business didn't take off as I had envisioned.
Don't get me wrong, I've had some amazing clients who were incredibly successful achieving the goals they set for themselves. It was an honor for me to be a part of their journey.
When my last two clients achieved what they set out to do, and there were no others waiting in the wings, I determined this was the push I needed to move in a different direction.
Even as I worked with clients, I started fulfilling my desire to write more by contributing a column twice a month to two local newspapers, writing more consistently on my blog, and contributing material to a few online publications through medium.com.
I've begun shaping the consulting side of adding value through positive vibes by way of personal and professional development opportunities.
What that means in a nutshell is that I'm no longer going to provide life coaching services. I loved it and I'm passionate about adding value to people's lives, but I can do it more effectively and reach more through writing and consulting.
So, when you come to my website, you will notice that the Consulting Services tab is under construction. I'm taking my time ramping it up. In the mean time, my writing will continue to increase as I strive to put out more content on healthy lifestyles, debt elimination (through my personal journey), positivity, productivity, minimalism, and living a simpler life in general.
I've learned so much over the last three years, and I can't wait to see what the next three years bring!
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
