I have a client that is always pushing my limits. Analyzing everything I say, do or wear. She is always striving to evolve and grow and imposes her desires on me. She is equal parts serious and funny and makes every decision with her heart.
She is fearless, vulnerable, creative, introverted, extroverted, simple, sophisticated, sensitive, confident and kind. I have seen her through successes and failures, joy and sorrow, gain and loss.
She is very high achieving and we were always very focused on her career growth and success and although she was “successful” she was always stressed and overwhelmed.
She is my first client and the one that still takes up most of my time. I used to struggle to understand her and we were often at odds with each other. This went on for many years. I was frustrated and ready to give up on her. I had run out of solutions and ways to help her stay afloat. So, I started to listen to her instead of offering solutions.
Once that happened it was very obvious that all of the years we spent working together that I was approaching it all wrong. She knew exactly who she was and what she wanted. I had just never asked her. When I started to listen, I realized her career was where she hid. It was a great cover for her personal life being a complete disaster.
That was my aha moment. I realized that that was what was the source of her stress and overwhelm and why she really couldn’t even enjoy the things in her life that were good.
So, we pivoted. She committed 100% to her happiness which meant that the business success that we were focusing on all these years would become a byproduct of the life and not her whole life. This was the most powerful and best decision she has ever made.
I could see clearly for the first time the impact your personal happiness has on your career. After witnessing the complete transformation and incredible results she had... I was hooked. It was then that I made the decision to treat every client exactly like this. We would approach all parts of their life in this order just like I had with my “high maintenance” client.
The rest is history. She is living the life of her dreams!
I am so happy to share with you that my client has agreed to take you along with her on her own personal weekly through this blog. She will share exactly how she applies this method and how it continues to work for her. Through her love of fashion, food, family and friends you will be able to learn how she has been able to live a life that is rooted in peace and prosperity.
If you are wondering if you know who my client is… you do. It is me. I am her. I am excited to share this journey with you. Thank you for coming along with me!
Here is what you can expect:
I will be sharing what worked for me and just as importantly what didn’t work (basically in real time). Because the world is changing so fast and the pandemic forever impacted how we live and work it is important to have a fresh perspective and new tools that are relevant for today’s issues.
Take what works for you and leave what doesn’t... let’s go!
