Coaching at its Finest

Life coach Iyanla Vanzant doing what she does — coach.

So I’m still trying to figure my tribe. You know, my community. For me, this can be difficult. But only because I’m still finding myself. Technically, I guess we never stop finding ourselves. Yes, it’s all about self discovery. I remember long ago (last millennium), I wanted it to be a life coach. Yes, a life coach. I had barely begun my life. With no real skills. But I did have ABC. And there she was. A beckon of hope. You may have heard of her — Oprah Winfrey. And she had a friend — Iyanla Vanzant.

She was eloquent. She had all the answers the audience needed. She was an attorney turned life coach. She helped people. She wrote books. She inspired many. She was bad-ass! I wanted that skill. But I realized that I lacked something — confidence. My confidence has always been my Achilles heel. But I think I want to move forward. I think I want to fake it til I make it. I want to be eloquent. I want to write books. I want to inspire. I want to be confident. And I want to take this journey, and I invite others to come along. I am going to incorporate that experience into my blog, my podcast, and my website. We’ll see what happens.
