How are you planning to spend the last 4 months of 2020?
I’m going to tell you why investing in a coach in 2020 is so damn important.
This year has been super challenging for all of us, let’s be 100 percent honest! COVID has casted over us like a dark shadow. I know that many of us have been feeling like we’ve been in a lull, hit a speed bump or maybe even stuck in a rut.
“What am I doing with my life?” might be a common question that popped up for you during quarantine.
Maybe you asked yourself countless times: “What are all of these challenges that I’m facing, and what must I learn from these adversities?”
It’s been a tough year for many of us, and I know that some of us are definitely more blessed than others. BUT, I think that this year has really brought to light a new way of living and spiritual awakening of sort. Many of us are wondering what they should and could be doing with their lives. What changes can you make to better yourself?
So many of us are starting new projects or undergoing new transitions, and we are really focusing on ourselves and asking the hard questions.
What is my why?
What is my purpose?
What do I want to be doing with my life?
How can I take action & get to my goals?
I know for myself, back in March when I got laid off from my last yacht job due to COVID, I fell into this weird little rut where I was questioning what I was going to be doing next. I always always wanted to start a blog and that’s what I did while I had all the time being back at my parents house in Canada. I simultaneously began working with a coach who I reconnected with after not seeing her for almost 10 years since high school!
At the time, I had no freaking idea that me wanting to start a blog would turn into a coaching business. I didn’t even know that working in the online space in this way was a possibility. I did know that I always wanted to help empower women though.
This is something that I did naturally since I was young. I was always the one that my friends and family went to for advice. I’ve always been told that I am a great listener, and I love helping and guiding others.
When I started working with my coach, it really opened up my eyes that coaching, mentoring and empowering women is something that I can do for the rest of my life. I have 6 years of experience solo traveling, as well as thriving and surviving in the yachting industry. These are two areas of my life that have provided me with an immense amount of learning and growing. Because of these life experiences, I have transformed into the strong and resilient person that I am today.
I really want to share this knowledge and wisdom with others and be a light and a love for women who are thinking about going against the grain and living the nomad life.
Before I dive in to what my packages are I want to talk a little bit more about why getting a coach will change your life. Think about it this way…
We’re all humans and we’re all imperfect. We all have things to work on.
Think about the time when you wanted to go to the gym and get super fit. Maybe that’s been a goal of yours for a while, and you’re thinking:”It’s New Year’s Eve and I’m going to sign up for the gym tomorrow. I’m going to kick start my goals and I’m going to get super ripped. I’m going to change my diet and eat healthy. Then… a few weeks go by and you begin to wake up feeling lazy so you push the snooze button and sleep in. Slowly but surely you slip back into your old habits. You’re no longer going after those goals that you set out at the beginning.
Why is that? Well they say that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit right?!
That’s why you hear about the people who smoke and try to quit cold turkey but they don’t stick to it. Not even 21 days go by, and they pick up a cigarette again and they are right back where they started. We are all imperfect and we all have our vices. Human beings all have things that they have to work. Think about it this way… what if you were the person that said, “you know what, I’m not as self-motivated as I want to be, whereas I know that I will be one day get there, but in the meantime I’m going to hire myself a personal trainer to get there and I know that one day I’ll be able to be so motivated that I won’t need that coach anymore. This is EXACTLY WHY you NEED a coach. You want that person to be your cheerleader and your accountability buddy. A coach will help get you from 0 to 100 in order to become the best version of yourself.
Investing in yourself is so so important and so many people don’t do it because they think they can just do everything on their own. Well, newsflash people… we all need help!
There are things that you can do alone for sure, but ask yourself… “how quickly are you going to get to your goals if you do it alone than if you did it working with a personal cheerleader by your side?” A coach that is there for you, believes in you, and pushes you every step of the way.
If you are anything like me, and are super motivated to get up bright and early in the morning to go to the gym, meditate, journal, read and eat a healthy breakfast all before 8am then welcome to the 5am club!
This morning mantra has become such a routine for me that it’s like brushing my teeth without having to even think twice about it. I just do it and I love it because it makes me feel great. I know that this is something that’s so important for my mental health. Being healthy and happy in general is so imperative for me, that I would never push snooze on my alarm clock. I’m actually so against the snooze button I wouldn’t recommend that to anyone that is trying to go after their goals.
If you’re the type of person right now that pushes snooze 5 times, wakes up 5 minutes before rushes to get ready maybe it’s time you rethink those habits. Having bad habits are what keeps you from going after your goals and dreams.
I’m going to tell you right now that changing your habits to establish healthier ones is so crucial. It’s really important for when you’re traveling solo or when you’re living on a yacht because you need to establish good routines in order to really survive and thrive.
Maybe Fitness isn’t the area of your life that you need a coach in. If you’re like me and you’re motivated to do it on your own already, then maybe you can think about what other area in your life right now you could you use a little bit of coaching.
You might need a coach that helps you with budgeting because maybe you the bad habit to emotionally spend and waste your money on certain things that aren’t necessities.
When quarantine started, I was digesting so much information on how to start a blog, how to monetize it and how to start a coaching business. I was so overwhelmed because I was married to Google and binge watching YouTube videos instead of Netflix & chillin’ like most people were doing during the lockdown.
By the end of it I was overloaded with information. Although I was self motivated, until I started working with a coach, that’s when things really started to take off. My coach pushed me to see an opportunity of starting an online business by coaching women to go against the grain and travel solo.
I began working with clients who wanted to work on their confidence to live the nomad life one day while working through limiting beliefs, mindset blocks and overcoming fears. Eventually, I started blogging about yachting when I got back into the industry, and I had dozens of women reach out to me and ask me if I could mentor them!
If it wasn’t for investing in myself and getting a coach, I probably wouldn’t have a thriving coaching business by now. Because I had an accountability buddy, I had someone that was supporting me and guiding me on this entrepreneurial path and journey. Because I invested money into coaching, I didn’t want to let my coach down, nor did I want to let myself down for not going after my goals and dreams.
If I did it all alone I probably wouldn’t be where I am today writing this blog, recording podcasts and coaching and empowering women. I probably wouldn’t have launched a successful online coaching business where I’m empowering women to confidently solo travel and successfully enter the yachting industry PLUS learn how to survive and thrive.
The truth is, if I didn’t make an investment in myself and hire a coach I would be 5 to 10 steps behind today.
Every successful person on this earth has a mentor and a coach. Think about the billionaires and millionaires in our world. They all have had or currently have coaches. There is a reason why they are the top 1%. Everyone needs a mentor, even adults.
When you were younger, you probably had coaches and mentors whether it was in sports or academics.
Why is it that when we become adults we decide that it’s okay to stop learning?
“I don’t need a teacher nor do I need a coach because I can figure it all out on my own. That’s what adults are supposed to do right?!”
You do need a coach because as an adult it’s so important to have that support in whatever area in your life that you need guidance.
You will be surprised how quickly you will achieve your results, hit your goals and get after your dreams because you decided to invest in yourself!
I want to dive into what it is that I offer. If you’re a woman reading this, then you’ve come clicked on this post because you are either interested in traveling solo OR you want to get into the yachting industry.
It’s your lucky day today because I’m an expert in both of these areas. I’ve been traveling solo for 6 years now. This all started from when I decided to really go after my dreams to go against the grain and move my life overseas to Australia. I wanted to see the world and I wanted to form deep and meaningful connections with others. I became an expert solo traveler and now I am working in the Yachting industry.
Now what I do is coach women to go after their dreams by sharing all of the wisdom and knowledge that I gained on my nomadic adventures both solo traveling and working in the yachting industry. I have faced many challenges and adversities which have allowed me to learn and grow so much.
I’ve taken everything I’ve learned and developed a coaching framework to guide and empower women who want to go down the same path by going against the grain and living out their dream nomadic life!
My very first client that I worked with was a boss woman who was super independent. She probably could have done all of this on her own, but she really wanted to work on her mindset and her limiting beliefs. Some of those limiting beliefs included her fear of disappointing others, especially her family. I’m sure many of us have similar dilemmas where he have parents who tell us not to waste our money on traveling. Rather, they believe you should work a nine-to-five, use your degree and get married by the time you’re 25!
That checkbox that society wants you to tick off leaves you sitting there scratching your head going, “Is that what I really want to do with my life?”
If you’re like me and you’re a black sheep, then you’re probably saying, “Yeah, living in the Culturescape doesn’t resonate with me!”
That’s where I come in to help you, empower and guide you to really work on those areas in your life.
Let’s be honest… we’re all humans and we all struggle with different things. We all have mindset blocks the limiting beliefs. Every individual will have different challenges and struggles, but each individual can benefit from working with a coach that really gets you and pushes you to work through each challenge in order to become the boss woman that you are!
I started off as a solo travel and mindset coach, and I coached a few clients over a 3 month transformational program, where I worked with each client creating a customized and personalized coaching framework to work through any specific fears and mindset blocks they had: such as fear of safety, disappointing their family, running out of money, etc.
I will still be taking on clients who would like to travel solo one day, but I am making a shift on my IG page as a Yacht Crew Coach.
Since I started blogging about yachting, I had women in my DM’s constantly messaging me asking if I could mentor them. It flowed so organically, that I decided to create a program to help women successfully break into the Yachting Industry PLUS learn how to survive & thrive.
If you decide to work with me, I will help you master your mindset when it comes to working in this niche industry. I will dive deep by asking you open-ended questions to really understand what is your why for wanting to get into Yachting and how do you plan to make the most of your experience?
If I could go back, I wish I had a coach to guide me when I was entering the Yachting Industry. I went through some huge setbacks and had to learn many things the hard way.
I have gone through so many challenges and adversities in this industry, I’ve had both good boat and bad boat experiences, where I have met some amazing people but I’ve also experienced personality clashes, verbal abuse and sexism. I want to share my knowledge with other women so that I can help them be proactive about entering, thriving and surviving in this industry. It’s a hard industry, especially for women who want to pursue the deck route.
There is so much to prepare for, such as knowing how to separate your personal and work life, keeping a positive mindset, budgeting your salary and handling crew politics just to name a few of the areas I dive deep into within my program.
It’s more than just landing your first job. I really dive deep into how to thrive in this industry.
Yes, you might land your first job right away, but you might not be prepared for what to expect.
You can Google everything about yachting until you are blue in the face, but there is nothing like working with a 1:1 coach who will make sure you don’t make the same mistakes that I did.
Google might tell you what courses you need to take, but does it tell you the good. the bad and the ugly of within this industry?
As your Yacht Crew Coach and mentor, I will dive deep into how you will thrive in this industry and have a positive experience.
Because I have faced so many challenges myself, I want to be that love and light to guide you on your new journey.
In my transformational coaching program, I will provide you with all the tools, knowledge and wisdom. If you’re a woman who is thinking about getting into the industry or maybe you’re just starting out as a “greenie” looking for your first job, then my program may be just what you need!
My true passion and purpose is to help others adopt an abundant, positive and growth mindset.
What challenges and problems are you currently facing in regards to getting into yachting?
I look at adversities and challenges now and the first thing I ask myself is, “how am I going to grow from this?”
If you’re interested in hearing more about my program, then head to my Work With Me page and book a free call.
Investing in a coach in 2020 is what’s going to propel you forward to end this year off with a bang.
Whatever avenue you are planning to go down, whether that’s traveling solo for the first time or getting into the yachting industry, know that these are two areas that I have so much knowledge and wisdom to share with you.
I can’t wait to help and empower women who want to go against the grain and bring their nomadic dream life to reality!
I truly believe that this is my purpose on this Earth. I get so much out of helping others that it brings me so much joy.
I can first hand tell you how imperative it is to have a coach. Up to this point, I have worked with 3 coaches and it has already brought me to the next level in terms of my mindset and growth.
I cannot wait to work with you and really motivate you to become the best version of yourself.
Investing in yourself and getting a coach is the way forward for 2020. The world truly needs more healers and guides and that’s exactly why I am here for you!
