In my work as a coach and personal development teacher I help women achieve the lives they desire. This could mean achieving some life change or a shift in their work/business. Specifically this year I am focusing on empowering women in the following ways:

(a) Increasing their incomes.     

If you feel stuck on an income that isn’t serving you well, the first place to start the repairs is inside your head. Yep, in the noggin! In my experience, as with any other goal, half the battle begins and ends in the mind. Whether it’s weight-loss, relationships, climbing Mount Everest or overcoming the fear of spiders, it all starts and ends inside us. Once we determine where the blockage is we can unstop our conduits, get the energy flowing and start the move forward. This isn’t going to be an easy process with immediate results, as the situation may have persisted for a while. But it is a possible process for those who will commit to the necessary transformation.  With tools, techniques and strategies from coaching, NLP and personal development I am currently putting together a 90 day coaching program for those wanting to increase their incomes this year.

(b) Becoming more confident and reaching for what they want

Many of us womenfolk, especially those not in the western world, were brought up to believe that we are second class citizens, to be seen but not heard. Well, thankfully the world is waking up to the injustice in this conspiracy and sisters all over the world are now blazing trails. However, even if you currently live in a more liberal society you may find that such an up-bringing can hold you down. I once met a beautiful and accomplished young Asian woman, doing well in her career. But somehow she just could not help being afraid in the presence of her bosses. Because they were older and male! She attributed this to her upbringing where she was taught not to challenge elders or the men folk, and to accept the status quo. Now, I have nothing against our men folk, or a culture of respect, (I happen to come from one as well), but it was clear that her beliefs were standing in the way of her performing her job. Which those same bosses had hired her to do! Can you see the inner conflict that was going on there? Hired to make a difference, but scared to make that difference!

Perhaps you find yourself in the same position as my young Asian friend, trying to shake the shackles of ancient custom and tradition. You may benefit from the support I offer in my Confidence and Assertiveness program.  Here women learn self-appreciation and self-respect, to elicit respect from others and how to go for what they want in life, with a win-win mentality.

(c) Taking action!

Procrastination, self-doubt, sacrificing our needs for others’ are a few of the reasons why we women do not take action on our dreams. On the local level I am currently on the verge of running a take-action group for women with dreams to achieve! It’s called The 28 Day Challenge for Brave Women. Sound exciting? It most definitely promises to be, both for myself and the participants! It’s amazing what we can achieve in just 28 days with the right support and an enabling environment. If you would like to take part in such a challenge, or hear about how this works out you can click here to leave your contact information.

These are the special focus areas for my work in 2010. I will also be carrying out personal coaching where I support my clients in their areas of need.
