When I was an adjunct faculty member at Western Washington University, I often felt like I had to dress the part and play a role in order to teach. I got the hang of teaching with Powerpoints and grading papers, and really loved the research aspect of it. After a year of teaching in the kinesiology department, I realized that my gig is teaching adults… actually my gig is coaching adults. People who want to make big changes on this planet and on themselves.
After I finished my duties as an adjunct faculty member at the college (which was a huge springboard for my teaching) I traveled the world teaching seminars for a system that I created called Clubbell Yoga (Australia, London, Spain, New York and more in 2014). It came so naturally to be in front of people and engaging them in the material. Plus it was content that I knew would change the way they viewed teaching movement, and even transform how they ran their businesses. When you truly believe in something, it shows and people take notice. But I didn’t want to stop there… I knew that people were ready to listen to what I had to say about Flow.
Now after a year or so of providing online coaching for clients globally, I can honestly say that it is the most gratifying job to know that you are making an impact on someones mindset, their business and their belief in themselves. I coach people to create a FlowStateofMind – which helps them manifest their truest dreams into reality. I then balance that mindset with helping them create authentic content that represents their brand with heart. My coaching clients come to me with all levels of experience in business, teaching, writing and learning, but the one thing they have in common is trust in the process.
I have found with taking my clients step by step through my 8 week signature Flow State of Mind program that they uncover so much about themselves, and finish with a true understanding of the rhythm of balancing productivity, creativity, self care and mindfulness practice. The best thing about creating an effective mindset coaching program is that I am always testing it, refining it and improving it on myself and my clients.
The entrepreneurship climate is changing as people realize the power of taking their businesses online, and I am happy to be on that frontier. Though nothing will ever take the place of authentic connection and the coach & student relationship.
