Life Coach, Web Author, Instructor
Have you heard the term Life Coach before? It’s amazing what we don’t know, until we know it!
I grew up thinking I wanted to be a counselor or psychologist, so after graduation, off to college I went. There I quickly determined that wasn’t the route for me. I loved school, but the vague application and lack of quick results was frustrating for me. Switching majors to a technology based teaching degree was fun, but I always felt like I settled for second choice.
The best part of teaching is when I see the light go on as the student grasps a difficult concept! I found myself tutoring peers, which led to informal coaching sessions. Soon more than peers came to me to talk about what was going on in their life. They shared with me, and others, how helpful it was to talk to me about their struggles. I didn’t solve anything for them, I just listened. No quick fixes, just insight and encouragement. I loved it. A few years ago I hit a cross roads and started really working out what I wanted to do with my days. WHAT DO I WANT TO BE WHEN I GROW UP?!
Quickly the thought “I want to help people, I want to be a mentor” came to mind. More of a coach than a counselor. More of a coach around accepting struggles, forgiveness, relationships etc. Then these magic words appeared in my head: A Life Coach! I would love to mentor and encourage people through struggles, you know, through ‘life’! I wonder if that’s a thing? I thought for sure I had coined a new phrase, so I Googled it. Sure enough, it is a real thing and exactly what I was looking for! Then, seemingly out of nowhere, BestLife Coaching Society appeared in my life! Now I had the what and the how!!
