Modern Day Problem Solver

Over the past four months, I have been traveling from coast to coast, speaking with hundreds, maybe thousands of people on topics from weight loss to finding a job, from relationships to health topics. My diverse background allows me to listen to people who have problems, issues and concerns.

A Life Coach takes a holistic approach, we look at all areas of your life, not just the the challenge that you are facing today.  As I traveled and as I met with more and more people, the same nick name kept coming up, " hey, your a Modern Day Problem Solver." 

So I have coined the phrase and plan to use it during my 2012 coast to coast tour.  During January 2012, I will be returning from California in the bus.  If you own or operate a business and wish for me to stop along the way back from the west coast to Georgia, please call my office at 800-841-8776 or email me.

Looking forward to a great 2012 on the Life Coach Road Trip.

Life is made up a seasons, just like the weather.  You create an idea, open a business or enter a relationship. First comes the planting or planning stages, then the growing stage and if everything goes as planned, the fall harvest allows you to be rewarded or enjoy the fruit of your labor. 

This is always followed by the winter season, the end of a cycle.  If you are like most farmers, you plant your seeds, you nourish your ideas and relationships.  Although you expect your hard work to produce results, success and reward, sometimes things happen along the way.  Take the farmer for example, if a storm comes along two weeks before harvest and destroys his crops, he does not quit farming, he has a lean year and plants again next spring, hoping for better weather.

Most farmers work hard all summer, then enjoy the fall harvest and use the winter months to plan, learn and prepare for the coming spring season.  I think we can all learn a great deal from the farmer. 

If you are in a relationship, which season are you in?  If you opened a business and it is not where you want it to be, maybe you are still in the spring season.  Like seeds in the garden, it takes warm weather, water and sunshine to grow the plants. 

This Thanksgiving, I look back and think of all the things that I am thankful for.  Not just the big things, but the small things too.  I want to wish everyone a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving.  I will be posting a special edition of Life Coach Radio this year for Thanksgiving.  Please be sure and tune it to hear my Thanksgiving special.
