Where do you feel like your most YOU?
Is it around certain people or places? After specific activities? In the absence of certain things?
What lights you up in a way no amount of caffeine or sugar can? What’s easy for you? What could you do for hours? What could you talk about for hours?
These are all clues to your unique design, your special gifts. Your path on this planet.
It’s common knowledge that although we’re all humans, we are all different. We have different interests and skills, different tastes and preferences, different hopes and desires.
Unfortunately our society preferences a certain path. Go to school, get a job (in one of these six professions), work hard, meet someone, buy a house, have a family, keep working hard, keep up the pace, retire and relax.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with following this path, except if it doesn’t feel like YOU.
We’re not all meant to work 9-5. We’re not all designed to have just one career. We’re not all suited for computer work (or care giving work, or manual labor).
Many of us are realizing this. Some (like myself!) figure it out on the younger side - in our late 20s and 30s when the traditional path isn’t working for us anymore. Some it happens later in life.
But the common reaction when you do realize that the path you’re on may not be the one for you is “Well what now? What do I do if I can’t follow this plan anymore?”
This is where it’s not only helpful but CRUCIAL to get support. To find a coach or mentor who gets you, who sees you and who has the tools and experience to guide you back to YOU.
And that’s what I do!
My ultimate goal in all of my coaching is to help my clients find themselves. Sometimes that’s with food (just like jobs, no one diet fits us all!), but more often it’s with LIFE and career.
Where do YOU want to go with your life? And what do you need to do to get there?
There’s a good amount of this self discovery you can do by yourself. And if you’re reading this, my guess is that that process has already begun. But none of us are meant to do this alone.
We’re supposed to have teachers and leaders that help us see a different possibility, a different future, and who then help us do the work and take the steps we need to get there.
If you’re at a crossroads in your life, or if you’re simply feeling like there’s a different path for you, I’d love to be your teacher and your guide.
Earlier this week I announced that I was opening up two spots for 1:1 coaching. I'm interviewing candidates for those spaces this weekend, but I've decided to keep the application open and create one more space for someone else.
Through working with me 1:1 you’ll get to know yourself on a deep level, shift habits and ultimately find clarity on where you’re going next. You'll also find peace in knowing that where you are is exactly where you need to be, there’s really no rush to get “there” wherever that ends up for you.
Learn more about how my coaching works + apply for the last remaining spot here: Coaching with Emily.
If you have any questions not answered on the program page, feel free to reply to this email and I’ll get back to you shortly!
