111: Stock Photography for Coaches with Elle Drouin

5/2/2022
Not all stock photos are created equal. Back in 2016 when I was just getting started, I designed everything in my business for myself. Pretty quickly, I realized that while I was trying to differentiate myself with photos of lotus flowers and the seashore, there were so many people using the exact same photos I had. For today’s episode, I’m excited to introduce you to a very good friend and colleague of mine, Elle Drouin, who is here to talk about how we can move past this huge stumbling...

109: How to Get Back on Track

4/18/2022
If I could just show up and work with my clients, life would be golden. Working with clients in any capacity lights me up. But the on-the-business work? Not so much. Coming out of a long launch season, I’ve found myself in a self-reflective period and when I sat down to record this episode I ended up going in a completely different direction than I had planned. Most of us go into coaching because we love helping people achieve their greatest potential. We don't necessarily go into...

107: What to Do When You Disagree with Your Client

4/4/2022
Conflict happens within coaching relationships. It’s normal. But for many of us, even the thought of having a disagreement with someone, especially a client, can bring up all sorts of uncomfortable feelings deep in the pit of your stomach. As a recovering people pleaser, my first thoughts tend to go to wondering if I caused the conflict or simply anger or resentment that it’s happening at all. The truth is that conflict is not only inevitable, but it can actually be helpful. In this...

When it comes to building a successful coaching practice, there are two central fears that come up for many of us.

103: Starting a Coaching Business? Do this first!

3/7/2022
Anchoring your business outside of yourself is not a good idea. When I just started my coaching practice, I was convinced that corporate coaching would be my path to long-lasting success. After all, when I looked at what other successful coaches were doing, that seemed to be the common thread. One year later, I was miserable and I knew something had to change. In the years since, I've learned some critical lessons about where I went wrong when I just started out, the importance of...

101: My Favorite Coaching Assessments

2/21/2022
For both personal development and in our work as coaches, personality assessments can help us to deepen our understanding of ourselves and others. Back in 1994 as an angsty teenager, personality assessments were the first thing I encountered that ever made me feel validated and like there were other people like me out there. They were introduced to me by my grandmother, Mary Lou, and I credit them for my early interest in psychology and ultimately, my career as a coach. Today we’re talking...
