If you had told me five years ago that this is where my decision to coach would lead me, I wouldn’t have believed you. But now I realize how much more there is ahead for me, how powerful life passion is when it comes to making things happen.

About this same time five years ago, I was actively seeking my life passion.

I’d been trying to figure it out for a over a year, and after much research and self work, I decided to register for courses to become a coach. That decision was the launching point for a new direction in my life. The day I began my first class was the day I startedliving my passion. At the time I didn’t know that because I was still unsure and nervous about my decision.

But as I became more immersed in the course work and began practicing my fledgling coaching skills, it became increasingly evident that I’d found what I was looking for. I absolutely loved helping people become the best version of themselves. I loved watching them stretch, make new discoveries about their abilities and strengths, and accomplish things they never believed they could accomplish.

When I finished coaching school and started a practice, I had no idea how passionate my passion would become. I had no idea that finding my passion through coaching would lead me to so many other passions — that my life passion could expand exponentially and almost effortlessly. Since the day I began my coaching classes, I’ve accomplished more than I could have ever imagined, more than I previously believed I was capable of.

I’ve built a thriving business, not just as a coach, but as an online entrepreneur and expert helping people around the world. If you had told me five years ago that this is where my decision to coach would lead me, I wouldn’t have believed you. But now I realize how much more there is ahead for me, how powerful life passion is when it comes to making things happen. (You can read more of my story in my free Passion Myths Guide.)

I want to share with you some of the lessons I’ve learned about myself, my life passion work, and about building a successful career around my passion.
