Someone in Your Corner

Metal_whistle Ok, I admit it.  I am a health nut.  A real self-improvement junkie.  I have practiced yoga for years and years. I eat organic. Take great supplements. Meditate.  I am working on a degree to become a Naturopathic Doctor. And I hired a personal trainer to work out with for one hour each night. You read that right- five nights a week. I feel good.  I feel healthy.  I feel together.

My personal trainer is Angela Gallagher of Fit 4 Life.  She is quite a ball of unbridled energy, unconditional acceptance and enthusiastic motivation.  She pushes me to the limit and makes me feel happy about it. And I know that she is 100% commited to my successI like having someone in my corner.  Somehow I don’t feel so all alone as I strive to reach my goals for a better life.

Last night during my cardio workout, as my heart-rate monitor was beeping wildly, a lightbulb went off in my head! It dawned on me that hiring a personal coach to help you achieve your business, career, financial and relationship goals is alot like hiring a personal trainer.  The work that I do with people as a personal and executive coach is very similar to the work that my personal trainer does.  While Angie focuses only on the body, my work focuses on integrating all components of a person’s life to achieve on-going life success.  There is a reason that my clients call me "The Diva of Life Design".  Just like Angie in designing fitness programs, I do my job of helping people design their life success programs.  And, I do it very well.

So what about you?  Are you ready to dip your toe in the water of hiring your own personal coach to help you live your best life?  With just a little bit of thought and research, you can hire the right coach to meet your unique needs (one size does not fit all!).   

Stay tuned for future posts to find out how to locate the very best coach to guarantee your success.

For now, it’s back to the treadmill!
