A few of you may know but I am seeing a Life Coach. For some reason a lot of people find this interesting so I thought I would give her a shot out.
Ever since Facebook I have gone through a lot personally and professionally. Lots of ups and downs like a roller coaster. I was talking with a serial entrepreneur a few months ago and he mentioned that he is seeing Erica Leder who works with entrepreneurs on life. Is “life coach” a new name for a shrink? Kind of, but better…
Why do I go? I go to bounce ideas off a person who has no investment in me or the outcome, an objective opinion. I go to talk about my feelings/worries/excitements and the best way to think about things. I go to address problems I recognize myself to have.
Does it work? That takes time to know if the suggestions/changes are sustainable. I’d like to think they are. She really helps recognize things I need to improve on and work on ways (“homework”) to solve them. It’s quite worth the money and you know how cheap I am. That’s another thing she taught me, a lot of value comes in the way you frame things. Think of it as an investment and what my ROI should/will be from meeting with her.
Results? I am trying really hard to be on time for things. To think about decisions that are genuine and authentic. To say yes and no to the things I really want to do. A few other things that are confidential….
PS. And no I don’t lay down on the couch. I straddle it;)
