The affirmation I received from my coaching sessions, ignited my self-confidence and made the impossible seem possible. Each session ended with a small call-to-action where I would create simple, yet achievable goals for myself to accomplish. I have been able to turn abstract ideas into action. The process has been wonderfully empowering. It has been the best investment that I have made for myself.
