How are you different from other coaches?
Well, one of the ways is that I’m still a working singer/songwriter myself. Although I don’t travel as much as I used to (by choice), I still perform with my producer/husband, Fett. And I still have the same desires to get my music heard as most of my clients do. So, I relate to my clients on a very real level!
Second, I’m a great listener. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned about creative people especially, it’s that they NEED to be heard. They need someone to hear about their dreams and desires and wishes and goals, yes. But they also need someone to listen to their frustrations and disappointments. And quite frankly, their friends and family are probably getting a little tired of hearing their whining and complaining! I’ll not only hear them, I’ll understand them. Heck, I’ve probably felt the same way at one point or another.
However, don’t get me wrong…I’m not going to let you complain for forever! I will hear you and validate you. And then I will help you find solutions and move forward.
And I will also believe in you 150%!
My clients tell me over and over again that I’m positive and encouraging and that I believe in them even when they don’t. Sometimes, that’s what you really need from a coach–someone to hold the space for you until you catch up.
One of the biggest ways that I’m different, though, is that my coaching style is really more of a coaching, consulting, and mentoring hybrid. So, I’m not afraid to give you advice or educate you on something if I know the answer. I won’t hold back information OR an opinion, if I think it’s in your best interest.
