I learned not only was is possible, but necessary to follow my heart's desires.  I quit my corporate job, started a small business and started a free after school educational program that provides a safe haven and academic support to at-risk children, while encouraging them to become good citizens.

Q

How did you hear about coaching and why did you hire Kristin to be your coach?

A

I originally wanted to find out if it was possible to quit my job at a big corporation and start my own small business. At the time, I really didn't think it was possible to leave the safety of working for someone else -- that fear seems hilarious today, but at the time it was very real. In just a few coaching sessions, I learned that not only was it possible, but necessary to follow my heart's desire. Kristin coached me for about a year while I started my business.

My main goals were to:

  • Find out if it was possible to quit my corporate job.
  • Start my own small business.
  • Overcome the fear of leaving a stable job
  • Create more freedom.
Q

What was memorable or meaningful about your coaching experience with Kristin?

A

For the first time, I started receiving the message that everything is possible. It was a life changing experience to switch my perspective in this way. Not only has my life just completely opened up, but I received more than I could have ever envisioned before.

Because I had more time and energy after quitting my corporate job and starting my own business, I decided to start a small charity in Dallas, which has now blossomed to three centers in Dallas and Austin. We serve hundreds of at-risk children each year. Heart House (www.hearthouse.org) has received local and national recognition as a provider of high-quality after-school care.
 

Q

 Why do you think coaching works? What about it worked for you?

A

Three major reasons come to mind:

Change of perspective -- someone who can see from the outside that, yes, you can have what you desire, despite the negativity of others.

Detachment -- the coach roots for you and helps you, that isn't emotionally tied into you as a relative or a spouse would be.

Accountability -- I made agreements to take certain steps and felt energized and motivated to really take them.

Q

What are Kristin's strengths as a coach?

A

Clarity, high expectations, positive attitude, and leading by example.
 

Q

Do you feel your coaching dollars were worth it? Why or why not?

A

Yes, the investment more than paid off in terms of financial freedom and emotional freedom. I'm so glad I'm not still toiling in a sterile corporate environment. It's a great life.
