I received an exuberant email from a life coaching client today. What a fabulous feeling.

Back in July when we started working together, she had an idea for a book that she mentioned as an afterthought during our consultation. I zeroed in on it and we brought it to life in the form of a goal. She has been doing diligent work on it using baby steps each week and suddenly doors are opening for her. How marvelous.

Sometimes — who am I kidding — oftentimes, people look at me quizzically when I say I’m a life coach. What is it? Why do you do it?

That exuberant email is why I do it. So many people are walking around with golden ideas and postponed dreams. I delight in connecting them with what has been elusive for them so far.

Imagine that.
