Here’s some music you might enjoy while reading this page.
Are you a woman over 50? Are you a Baby Boomer? Perhaps you are even a pre-Baby Boomer? The question is not how old your birth certificate says you are, but how old do you feel? Is it time for you to shake things up?
If you have lost the glow that comes with satisfaction, with excitement about life, we NEED to talk. If you have lost the energy that comes from having interests and passions that make you want to get out of bed and embrace the new day with enthusiasm, it’s time to address that, and to find ways to change it.
When your life has lost its bloom, you can revive it. Just as you might send a soil sample to your State Extension Service to figure out what’s going on in your garden and to add nutrients so your plants will once again flourish, you can do that with your life. It’s not just a question, though, of figuring out what’s wrong, or why. You can go to therapy to get help with that. That’s not what happens when you work with a coach.
When you care enough about yourself to hire a coach, (the right coach) you get a partner who commits to going 50-50 with you in figuring it all out, helping you look at your world differently, through fresh eyes. The coach is not an expert on your life. You are, but the coach has tools and techniques to help you put all the pieces together.
50-50 means you have to be committed to making changes because there’s effort involved. I won’t be doing all the work. It isn’t likely to be a quick fix, or anything I can do by waving a magic wand. It’s an investment in yourself that you must be willing to make. If you decide to work with me, you will find a creative, nurturing partner to accompany you on your quest for new purpose and a renewed sense of intoxication with life, and some new insight to help you determine how you will achieve your brand-spanking new goals (or old ones you have abandoned long ago).
So why do I say 50-50? Well that’s a boundary that has to be set up from the get-go, as we create our initial agreement to work together. I will always be in your corner, willing to encourage you and to help you stretch to get where you want to go, BUT, I won’t do all of the work, or even most of it. That’s not what a partner does. I will get tough with you sometimes too. I will challenge you. I won’t be your Yes-Woman as some of your friends might, out of their fear of alienating you, hurting your feelings, or losing your friendship.
It’s not for nothing that people often describe me as “tough but tender”. I am super compassionate. I am also super conscientious in wanting you to get the maximum benefit from our work together. I can’t guarantee anything, because the majority of it is up to you, but I can tell you right now that I won’t let you get away with being complacent or lazy. You have to know that in advance!
If you are a woman over 50, a Baby Boomer, or even older than that, you have most likely already been through a lot. Maybe you have had many disappointments, or just a few. Maybe you’ve experienced a deep loss, or more than one, or some kind of trauma. Maybe you haven’t, but you’re just ready to shake things up so that the next phase of your life is more interesting and fulfilling. Maybe you are simply tired, very tired of living with boredom, apathy and discontent.
So let’s talk ASAP. Let’s have a brief Curiosity Session so you can learn more, and so we can see if we are a good fit to work together. There’s no obligation. I work with my clients one-to-one via telecoaching sessions with email support, so you can be located pretty much anywhere to work with me. It’s a very effective method of working together. If finances are an issue, let’s talk. I may be able to design a package that’s right for you. I also do group work, so that could be a lower-cost option for you if I have enough women to start a new group.
I know I can help you. If you read through this site and learn more about me, you will see that I have had to reinvent myself a few times and have experienced some serious losses and difficulties too. I am someone who gets how hard it is to find and maintain enthusiasm and passion for life when it has kicked you in the teeth a whole lot in the past. Yet if you don’t want to keep living the way you have been, and want something more, now’s the time to make that commitment. Life is just too bloody short to let it pass you by. It’s a cliche but wow, is it true!
