Now is the time to take the first step!
In 2004 I was faced with a divorce of sorts! The company where I had been working for 7 years and expected to work until I decided not to work there made the decision for me. I found myself without a job and wondering what I would do next. I had already been through a coach training program which was very good, but I didn’t feel prepared to go out and develop a coaching practice. I was scared and not convinced I could replace much of my salary because I had never generated my own income. I had always worked for an organization and didn’t have the vision for myself of what value I could bring to others. The idea of coaching was then a very new idea. I decided to see what I could do with coaching and was willing to give it a try. For several years I had a foot in developing a coaching practice and a foot in exploring job opportunities. And that didn’t work very well!
The path from having an income, to not having an income, to generating an income can be a very rocky road. In 2008, 4 years after I had lost my job, I was starting to get real momentum in what was now leadership coaching, when the bottom fell out of the economy. My clients kept coming to me to get career coaching. While they loved the leadership coaching, they saw the handwriting on the wall and knew they needed to develop their job search skills. At first, I resisted, but when I realized this was the value that my clients wanted me to bring to them, I got with the program. From that moment on I knew that if I wanted to have a viable income from coaching, I would have to be part of a solution for a pervasive problem. People will pay to get help with their problems. And for me it was very satisfying to see people scared and afraid of the future, and then to have someone see their strengths, and their light shining through the dark. I knew they could do it and believed in them until they could believe in themselves. Just like what we do in divorce coaching.
