Are you ready
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Enter . . . a coach
Working with a coach is both a brave decision and a no-brainer.
Let’s start with the no-brainer part.
We humans rarely change or move out of our comfort zone without some kind of prompting. More often than not, that prompt is mental, physical or psychological pain. This pain is a good thing! It’s your wake-up call, baby! P.A.I.N. = Please Acknowledge I’m in Need!
A wise person knows getting out of what I call “the velvet rut” requires help; someone to throw you a tow rope or a ladder to climb out of your hole.
A great coach is a guide, a sherpa if you will, who helps you decide where you want to go and guides you along the quickest and easiest path without falling to your death off the edge of a cliff or getting eaten by lions.
A great coach makes sure you see results. I strive to make sure my clients get back 2 times to 10 times their investment! That doesn’t even count the mental and emotional improvements!
Now the brave part. Change is uncomfortable. Even when we desire a different set of circumstances, some part of us works to have us stay put. Anyone who acknowledges their desire for things to be different AND hires a coach is truly a brave soul.
Working with a coach means you have the help of someone who will shoulder through this discomfort with you as you get to the other side. Most people don’t have what it takes to make these shifts on their own. We can't see our own "stuff". But those courageous souls who work with a coach have that kind of moxie and fortitude. It may be hard to find in the moment, but coaching helps you find and use your Courage Muscle! But you’ve got to be brave enough to step up in the first place.
If you’re tired of waiting to feel like changing or you’ve tried
to shift things on your own and failed over and over,
perhaps now is the time for a transformational experience.
"Cheri, I'm ready to design my life."
"I started working with Cheri when I was in a period of transition – I had not worked for 7 months, was applying to graduate school, and needed part-time work. I knew I was on the right path, but I felt stuck. And like eating an elephant, Cheri helped me figure out how to tackle my lists, bite by bite.
Six months later I write this from my new home. And amazingly everything I envisioned on Cheri's visualization exercise at the start has happened – everything! It wasn’t easy. But I worked through it and throughout the process Cheri encouraged me and helped me get unstuck.
Maybe some of this would have happened without Cheri’s coaching, but I DO know that with her support, it felt a whole lot more doable, and energizing and even fun.
If you are in a transition or a funk or just stuck in an old routine, give Cheri a call. Your future is waiting for your best self."

Stop living by default, letting one day bleed into another, not being who you were meant to be.
Designing and living the life you've always intended requires you to be intentional. Like an architect, you're the visionary who must see what you want even before it exists. Then once you can fully imagine it, you must act your way into this new life.
This requires developing new habits and practices, setting boundaries for yourself and others. It means you'll need to find your reserves of energy and moxie. It requires self-reflection, gratitude, and occasionally tough love.
I adore working with people one-on-one and I do it three different ways.
People come to me for:
one 90 minutes session to get unstuck on a single option
90 days to laser focus on 3 - 5 areas of their life
6 months to do a comprehensive redesign of their life and business
Which one is right for you?
As always, we can have a conversation to help you decide.
When you're stuck or on default it can be hard to know what you need. It's my belief that you do know, it's just hard for you to see. That's where a simple conversation can help you get clear about your next step. And remember . . . I NEVER coerce people to sign on for more than they are ready for.
One powerful coaching session to get you unstuck!
90 Day Package to work on 3 - 5 areas of your life and work.
6 month customized package to work on your entire life!
"When Cheri helped me one-on-one her belief in me and my work was palpable. I would leave my sessions with her feeling focused and energized and willing to take the next steps. It was so helpful to have her walk me through goal setting and prioritizing actions so that I could work smarter and happier, not harder, confused, and stressed!"
