I've been thinking a lot about gifts. You see, the past year has gifted me with answers to some of my biggest questions, as well as generous lessons in asking better questions. I began a career-change program, discovered my calling to coach the curious and brave, met the love of my life, quit the desk job that often felt like introvert torture, and traded in one tiny home for another as we hit the road in an RV, destination All The Places.
This time last year, I was open to transformation (I called it 'adventure' then and I talked about it nonstop, because it was all I thought of). Being in integrity meant matching up my thoughts with my words and my words with my actions. Once those were synced, the Universe came to my aid. Transformation showed up. Truly, I didn't know it worked like that.
In an effort to thank the Universe for allowing me many opportunities to transform (and, because I want to be of service in a big way), I've created a challenge for myself:
Before the end of October*, my goal is to book 13** powerful coaching conversations for the month of November, and another 13 for the month of December. A few things to know about these calls:
- They are entirely complimentary and have no strings attached to them.
- They can take place over the phone, on Skype, or through an internet conference line.
- They are not chats.
- They are for folks who desire personal transformation and/or a shift in perspective.
- They are for folks who will not let fear get in the way of taking action (frequently, fear shows up as resistance).
- They are 90 minutes each.
This is an offer that's yours for the taking and/or yours to pay forward. I do ask that you help me get the word out by telling even one person that this exists. Forward this note to a friend or family member, post about it on your Facebook page, tell your professional network if you feel comfortable doing so.
If you or someone you know is interested and would like to apply for this offer, please refer to the following link: weeklyfindings.com/13x13.
*The period for scheduling these calls ends this Saturday, October 31. The calls can take place any time before the end of 2015, but need to be booked on my calendar by this date.
**13 is my lucky number. That's why. :-)
