Who’s ready to transform in 2023? The true definition of transformation is to have a thorough or dramatic change in appearance. A metamorphosis. When I read that my first instinct was, “I’m IN.” What’s the visual that comes to your mind? For me, an immediate image of me surrounded by beautiful blue butterflies flying all around me. I’m celebrating this change with my hands wide open, receiving this life-lasting gift. We talk about change often, this image I conjure up is the result of several stages, steps and iterations of myself as I transform layer by layer; shedding of different parts of me to love the skin I am in. Earlier this month I released our blog Take Action - What are you waiting for? But seriously, it’s time to truly transform. These past few years have been rather static and I’m not clear it has served us. It’s time to conjure up that visual of your dream and bring it to life. Permission granted.

People often ask me what I do for a living, and well, as an entrepreneur I wear many hats. I always reply with leadership training and coaching. Next question, what is that? I run a female empowerment company that focuses on entrepreneurship with a combined approach of business and wellness. You see, I also do a ton of business and marketing (internally and externally for clients), podcast host, moderate and form the membHership community, and have a coaching practice - to name a few main things.

Coaching and service are at the forefront of EmpowHer Purpose whether that be through my one on one clients, the MembHership or frankly, being the host of the Opportunity Knocks podcast. Many people ask me why I left marketing as a profession, and became a coach. Honestly, in the midst of my major transition in my career it was my coach who changed my life forever. They recommended me to the profession of coaching 20 years ago, when no one knew what a coach was. My answer is simple: I love people, to serve,

connect, strategize, listen, collaborate, and to see each person at their greatest value. As a podcast host several guests have mentioned their ability to be vulnerable and open up on a level they haven’t felt comfortable with and that they enjoy my interviewing style. I believe one of my greatest gifts is to build trust and disarm people, allowing them to let down and show up as their true selves. I inform them prior to the call I treat it like a coaching session so I flow in the moment, listen deeply, get curious. I am not afraid to ask tough questions, if I want to know more I go there and ask in a kind way. I am delighted to celebrate the release of 75 episodes with amazing women and men who inspire me to show up, follow through and be and do better daily. They live the word entrepreneurship in the good, the bad, and the ugly. They commit to transformation and sitting into all the unknowns of success as our society defines it. I have immense gratitude for these women and men. The variety of people I interview in business and wellness is a testament to my love for people and connection but the ability to truly see each person is one of my gifts.

What is a transformational coach any way? And what are the core benefits of working with a coach? I want to be clear that I was called to coaching. It was an innate desire to truly serve people and create positive lasting change in all parts of their lives, not just career to be clear. I focus on a whole 360 life approach aligned with your values, dreams and goals. I was honored to be named Top 1% Transformational Coach by Yahoo Finance in 2021 and Top 8 Coaches in USA Today that same year. What a blessing!

As you can see Transformation Coaching delivers a lot of value. My hope is that when you are seeking transformation this year you recall this blogpost and determine that seeking the support of a coach can only help motivate you to gain clarity and take steps to reach your goals.
