What is Coaching?
Whether you’re struggling to keep up with the latest technology, designing another rush logo or staring blankly at a Word doc with zero copy ideas, one thing remains the same. Creative work can feel so FRUSTRATING! You're in the right place.
Does any of this sound like you?
- You’re out of ideas and your go-to performance tricks are no longer working.
- You spend hours each day being “busy,” but not productive.
- You’re making a lot of little mistakes.
- You’re exhausted. All. The. Time.
- You’re addicted to your device. It’s constantly with you and being away from it makes you anxious.
- You’re forgetting things and missing deadlines.
- Without even realizing you’re doing it, you say the meanest things to yourself.
- You procrastinate because it has to be perfect, or don’t start things at all.
- A good night’s sleep is a rarity.
- Your work feels like a prison, not a passion.
If you’re in a creative career and burned-out, it’s not entirely your fault. The creatives that came before us didn’t talk a lot about self-care. They set a standard for high-achievement and quality for us to follow, but many didn’t recognize that taking care of ourselves is the secret to making it achievable long-term. They were human.
But they weren’t on 24/7. They weren’t connected to devices and bombarded with constant notifications and emails and text messages. All the contextually switching, the shit our brain isn’t wired to handle, actually prevents us from being able to focus and get anything productive done.
So we work longer hours and when we fuck up, we beat ourselves up and strive for perfection. We sacrifice our sleep and ignore our body’s needs. We sacrifice our relationships and our health, but all that sacrifice doesn’t produce quality work, it leads to burnout. Or worse, stroke, heart attack, addiction, divorce or even suicide.
I help my clients reprogram their bullshit beliefs, so they recognize that self-care isn’t selfish, but necessary to have both a career and life they love. If you’re struggling with creative burnout, what would it mean to you to wake up, three months from now, feeling energized and inspired in your work and present and fulfilled in your personal life? Let’s paint a picture.
Could this be you in 90 days?
You wake up after a great night’s sleep. Breakfast is stress-free and enjoyed with your family, sitting down, at a real table, tech-free.
You head to your business or office, where you do work that excites you, and it’s okay to let things be done, not perfect. You trust yourself and know you’re bringing value. You take breaks and eat lunch away from your desk every day. You give yourself permission to enjoy this time without thinking about your to-do list. You have confidence and set healthy boundaries, so when you’re done for the day, you can leave work behind with ease.
You make time for self-care. On the way home, you go for a walk and enjoy moving your body because it feels good, not because you’re “supposed” to exercise. You have dinner out with a great group of friends, who fully support, champion and love you for who you are.
You show up authentically. You own who you are and recognize your worth in being the person you are, not in the things you do. You have real relationships. You laugh, take chances and pursue hobbies you enjoy. And you always put your own well-being first.
You feel happy. Because you truly are happy.
What would it feel like to make a great LIFE, not just a living? What would it feel like if you put yourself first without feeling guilt? How would it feel to have your creative spark back and be rested and rejuvenated at the same time?
Coaching is a catalyst for change
I help high-achieving women like you start making big changes right away. We identify the limiting-beliefs and sabotaging behaviors that have kept you stuck in burnout, and create an action plan for where you’d like to see yourself in three months. We’ll grow your confidence with small experiments. I’ll constantly remind you that your value is in BEING, not doing. We get real about your self-care, because without it, the gas tank in your creative car is empty. We need to find ways that work for you to consistently fill it up.
And I’ll be there every step of the way, because I’ve been there myself and I didn’t make these changes alone. You shouldn’t, either.
So let me ask you, what would it be worth if you had a complete transformation three months from now? How could it change your life?
