We all have infinite possibilities to live the lives we deserve. Facilitating and assisting in the discovery of an individual’s empowerment is an AWESOME job. I am so passionate about this opportunity that I left a very lucrative job, changed careers mid life and decided to become a full-time certified life coach through ICA (One of the most respected , credentialed, coaching schools in the world). Let me sum up what my coaching is in two words. Facilitating Empowerment: I help individuals by facilitating and empowering them to take action and to design their life. Here are the definitions from WEBSTERS dictionary and WIKIPEDIA.
