Your limiting mindset is...
Risk Aversion

You’re naturally skeptical and like to challenge systems, but your trust is unwavering — once it’s been earned.


Your carefully earned middle name is trustworthy. You’re the most loyal supporter and will challenge those around you to be the best versions of themselves.


It’s honorable to make sure every choice you approach is safe and solid, but at some point, you gotta throw caution to the wind and move forward. It’s ok to make mistakes, friend!


No wonder you’re the go-to person for researching decisions.


It’s easy to believe you’re the only person that you can really trust.


Trust is at the molten core of your fudgy lava cake, but you’ve got to get through that cakey exterior to fully appreciate the best of you.


How do you know if risk aversion is really what you should focus on in coaching?


Let’s play “Tick the boxes!”


Do you…


☑️ Have a difficult time making decisions?

☑️ Not validate your own experience/ reality?

☑️ Value external opinions over your own?

☑️ Frequently second guess yourself?

☑️ Shy away from speaking up for yourself and your needs?

☑️ Struggle with self-worth?

☑️ Dwell on your mistakes?

☑️ Undermine or dismiss your previous success and feel regret?

☑️ Try to control everything and everyone?

☑️ Compare yourself to others?

☑️ Minimize your responsibility/choice?

☑️ Silence your intuition?

☑️ Would rather have others make decisions for you and have a difficult time committing?


...if you check even 3 of these boxes, then chances are you doubt yourself enough that it’s holding you back, and it might even be seriously damaging your relationships.

Let's Get to Know You...

Coaching is an often misunderstood practice, and while it involves talking about feelings, it’s more about taking a closer look inside yourself to see what makes you tick.


Don’t you want to learn more about why you do what you do? And how to address some of the ways you unknowingly sabotage yourself?


Other than learning to TRUST, let’s take a look at some of the foundations of coaching.



The key to a happy life isn’t abundance and never-ending chill days; it’s all about balance.


The grind of day-to-day life can become a repetitive, life-sucking rut if you aren’t careful to create healthy boundaries between work, play, and the everyday.


With the help of a coach, you can delve deep into where your imbalances come in life and how to make changes to restore a much-needed life balance.

It’s easy to wander through life without much direction, reacting to the world instead of purposely creating a life.


This can lead to a feeling of not being seen or heard and always feeling like you just fit in instead of actually belonging.


Finding the right friends or jobs to fulfill and challenge you into new growth can be tricky when you don't know yourself very well.


Self-Awareness is a core focus of any coaching journey. Check out our 6-Week Online 'Best Self' Program to learn more about yourself and how you can align your life with who you truly are.


It can be very difficult to establish and maintain boundaries that are meant to protect your peace when you’re constantly putting others before yourself.


It isn’t bad to want to help others, but when your selflessness becomes a complete loss, it’s time to work on your own core values and boundaries.


Learn how to show up as an advocate for yourself, so you can give your loved ones empowered, resounding ‘yes’s and firm, healthy ‘no’s without feeling guilty or selfish.
