Over the years I have helped so many people just like you... people who ultimately were just like I was. They were coming to me at wit's end... tired of being tired and stressed and disorganized. Tired of having to fight for business and earning inconsistent income from shutting down completely after long bouts of difficult clients and stressful deals. Frustrated with themselves for not spending the time they wanted with their kids and sad about the state of their romantic relationships and the emotional disconnect that went along with it. They came to me wanting more for themselves.... more from their lives and more time to connect with their families. They wanted to spend less time working, have less stress while working, and make a lot more money. I helped myself do that which is why I got into coaching and then as a coach, I helped others do that and I can help you too. Here's my story...
A very long time ago... I had two young kids, my marriage was failing, my house was a mess ALL THE TIME. My car... I don't even want to tell you how messy it was but um... the cheerios were literally multiplying daily. I wasn't sleeping very well and I was struggling with regular anxiety attacks. Life didn't feel good and I didn't feel good. I just felt like I was always rushing to do this or that, always running late, never had time to just sit and breathe and I just couldn't keep up. I was always stressed out and was steadily gaining weight.
I realized that my life needed to change but I didn't know what to do. I felt stuck. I didn't even really know what the problem was... just that everything around me was constant chaos and I couldn't take it anymore... I was slipping into depression and although self-employed, not working very much. In fact, weeks would go by where I wasn't working at all.
It didn't happen right away. It took a long time but I didn't have anyone to go to... no one who really understood. I tried lots of different things along the way- therapists, doctors, diets, books on productivity, motivation, organization, time management, marriage, parenting, and spirituality. I became intensely interested in psychology and made "being happy" my ultimate goal. I played with different systems, tried on new perspectives, and eventually I found that what I needed most and what felt good for me. I had discovered the root cause of all the chaos in my life and how to fix it.
After that, my life turned around and so did my business. I felt good and I lost the extra weight... I became organized, my house and car were clean and stayed that way. I divorced my husband after realizing he and I were just not right for each other and while that wasn't easy, it was the right decision for both of us and my anxiety and depression slowly disappeared.
Eventually I became a productivity coach to others and realized the people I coached were all facing the same problems I had faced. Many were struggling with life issues dragging them down and all of these things derived from their innate attraction to chaos and need to help others. They didn't know how to stop until stopping was the ONLY thing they did. Many of these people originally reached out to me to help them get their business off the ground again, thus the need for a productivity coach, when what they really needed was a complete life overhaul. Nothing worked for them until I got brave enough to start asking the questions they really needed asked- deeply personal questions about their life, their relationships, their health... everything a "productivity coach" wasn't supposed to touch. That was when I really started to make a difference and when I found my purpose. I eventually went on to achieve certifications as an integrative nutrition health coach and an awaken your soul spiritual healer.
Today, I'm happily married with five children (3 of them grown) and I live in a wonderful small town and in a house that truly feels like home to me. I have 3 dogs who are my constant companions and often you can find me in my hammock by the pool reading a book or making plans for something new to offer my people. People just like you who come to me for healing their productivity.
Productive Souls and the cloud-based productivity center I created is the culmination of everything I learned trying to become the best version of me: mentally, physically, and spiritually, both in life and in business. It's where people come for healing and for help getting through their day. My goal is to reach as many as possible, share with them what I know and work with them so they can attain the level of happiness I have now, in life and in business.
If you're reading this, you probably know what it feels like to be stuck and to not have anyone who really understands all of it. A traditional productivity coach may help you determine the numbers you need to hit, a doctor may give you medication to reduce your anxiety, and a therapist may listen to what you have to say, but none of them deal with the root of the productivity problem or tackle the entire problem. That is left up to you and until now, you probably haven't spoken to one person who really knew what it felt like to be you.
