Just Like My Clients
“Melissa” was a stay-at-home mom who had started a business when her kids got older. Melissa came to me because she was completely overwhelmed at work and at home, putting in crazy hours just to keep her business afloat and working like a dog trying to keep up at home, unsuccessfully. She was exhausted and overwhelmed and feeling trapped in a cycle of overwhelm, procrastination, guilt and stress. (Sound familiar?) She was getting so burned out by trying to keep everything going that she was anxious and irritable and, frankly, resentful. I helped Melissa update her internal operating system and put strategies in place so that she was able to cut back her hours in her store, get done what she needs to do at home, spend more quality time with her husband and kids, and start enjoying her own hobbies again!

Another cllient, I'll call “Terry” learned how to take control of her days so that she could keep up with the demands of her job without getting overwhelmed and procrastinating on what she knew she needed to do. She was able to keep her inbox or whatever popped up on her radar from stealing her focus each day, and she finally got the promotion she deserved! She is getting back into shape, and STILL has time and energy for her family, friends and volunteer work in her community.

And then there’s “Bill” who came to me completely overwhelmed with a demanding job and family at home. Bill had a challenging job during the day, and a little one and partner at home who he felt were getting the worst of him by the time he got home in the evening. He was stressed out and sleep-deprived and feeling guilty all the time. We were able to update his internal operating system and get to the bottom of his overwhelm so he could stop procrastinating and tackle what he needed to at work and come home early enough to be with his family, and to really be present and engaged when he’s with them--and he was able to do it with enough energy to stay on top of his responsibilities at home, and make time to nurture his relationship with his partner, too. He was able to start to work out consistently again, and even take up a new hobby—or actually, revive an old hobby he’d let go.
