Meet Christy, Certified Career and Life Coach for Leading-Edge Working Moms
Before starting my business in 2015, I spent 14 years in human capital, leadership development, communication, and consulting, and earned an MBA in organizational development and sustainability. I worked on the people-side of business and learned what it took mentally and energetically for high performers to succeed in fast-paced environments.
During this time I was high performing, highly achieving, and highly burned out (big time) the majority, if not all, of my career.
I felt extreme overwhelm throughout the promotions, the education, the conversations, the hard work. Through it all.
So after hemming and hawing for a couple of years, and realizing nothing was going magically change for me, I finally decided to make some big changes to my career. At that time I had been a certified professional coach for two years, so I decided it was officially time to start my coaching business. And I was thrilled. I mean, this was it! This change, a career I loved, was the answer to all my stress and overwhelm!
And so I dove in and picked up right where I left off; over working, over thinking, and over stressed.
I was back in the cycle of burnout, even though this time around I loved what I was doing.
Eleven months into my business, I was running on my last reserves and I found myself riddled with doubt and overwhelm. And it was here in this place where I finally became available to hear the message: it’s not about doing different things, but about doing things differently. Thank you Course in Miracles. It was time for a new perspective, a shift in my mindset, and a new way of living life. I had a lot to learn. After all, I had spent my entire career striving for more, accomplishing, achieving, and pushing myself hard. My expectations were high and my self-worth and standards were low. And I was no longer available for this way of living.
For the past five years I have been on a journey of simplifying, letting go, and being. And I have created a more inspired, feminine way of life where I can flow in the moment and make more meaningful and confident decisions.
And today I am more present, in the moment, than I ever have been. I trust my decisions, I am live true to my values, and I’m having more fun than I ever have both with my family and in my career. Of course I still have stress, I still get tired and grumpy, I still doubt some of my actions, and the list just may go on! But, I have learned how to shift into a higher state of energy, to rise above the doubt, and to learn new perspectives. And I have learned that I have the choice to deal with the situation at hand in the best way possible.
This journey is about choice: Choosing to access the power and fulfillment that is already here for you, and choosing to lay the foundation for a powerful and fulfilling way of life going forward.
