freed me by her focused and structured direction. Coaching isolates the
problem, sets the goals, and puts the action in motion -- all
under my control. It works! Jan is committed and compassionate
to my growth and success."
"I want to say to anyone who is considering personal coaching, to go ahead and do it. If you are THINKING that there is a place for coaching in your life, then there is a need and you are ready. That has been my personal experience in working with Jan as a personal coach. Immediately I began to reap the benefits.
Jan has a special
skill in focusing on issues that block my goals. She picks
up on these issues and offers exercises that provide opportunities
to go beyond obstacles. She doesn't tell me what to do.
But, rather she provides a structure that helps me remain consistently
focused on where I want to go. Jan brought an issue to my awareness
during our first session. I began to see how it was holding
me back. By taking action and changing that one issue, I opened
a floodgate of possibilities."
Coaching helped me to establish
personal & business focus and direction. It also provided reassurance & encouragement.
I've learned to give myself permission to switch focus. This
frees up a lot of energy, as guilt takes up time & energy!
I'm more realistic with planning & time management. I've
learned to not put too many things on my to do list but
to focus on one thing at a time. I've learned to plan my time
differently - different activities require different types of
energy. Coaching motivated me to invest my time/energy into organizing
my home & work space. Getting rid of the clutter gives me
a sense of peace & order, allowing for more effectiveness
in my home/family life & work. And finally, I am more conscious
of flexibility. Coaching helps me to realize where I'm at, where
I'm going, & what directions & approaches to take.
with Coach Jan has helped me to keep my goals always at the center
of my attention. Learning
to break huge and occasionally overwhelming goals into smaller
steps has helped me to overcome the immobility and hopelessness
I felt before working with Jan. She blends skills, tools
and creativity with a wonderful compassion that makes working
together productive. Her belief that I can develop my yoga
classes into a profitable business helps me to believe in myself.
I have taken many risks I could not have taken without
Jan's clarity and support."
"My experience with Coach Jan superseded my expectations. I've not only achieved goals in improving time management, setting boundaries and chipping away at life's tolerations -- my life has become more focused in the process. This positive direction has opened endless opportunities both personally and professionally. I am more in balance and empowered.
Coach Jan is
an intelligent and caring individual with great insight. She
shares a wealth of resources and makes me accountable and herself
available. Her suggestions lead to solutions. Thanks
to Jan, I am currently balancing my home life with the rigors
of athletic competition and a burgeoning career. I can
live closer to the reality that I envision for myself and be
a champion of my life."
"I had a void in my life that I could not put my finger on. I had a good job, a good marriage, and was living a comfortable lifestyle. But this feeling of wanting more was always in the back of my mind. Counseling was not the answer because nothing was really wrong and nothing needed to be "fixed." A close friend told me about a new trend sweeping the nation and so I though I'd try it. I have a personal coach who has turned my life around! I realized I didn't want to be "comfortable," I wanted to be happy and charged about living. Jan showed me how to change my attitude towards everything and I've never felt so complete. Having a personal coach is wonderful because your personal goals can change. And you know that there's this person who's there in a solid way to be there in a totally supportive way to help with anything!"
you might need financial advice, another day you might just need
an attitude adjustment. It's a new lease on your life from someone
who's not related to you, who's not judging you, and who really
helps you take charge of your life! I love having a personal
coach. It's like having a guardian angel who is there for
me in any way I need her to be. Just knowing she's there
for me is a security that a friend can't provide and is priceless.
A personal coach is great because it's so motivating and supportive
and it's all for you all the time in any way you want."
Jan is a strong
motivator and supporter. She asked me questions that made me
think and helped me to answer my own questions. I will
continue using these skills throughout my life.
"Looking for employment
after 18 years can be down right frightening. However, thanks
to your role in my life as a Personal Coach, not only do I now view this unforeseen
task as an exciting challenge - I also have the confidence that
I will achieve my goals. My sincere thanks for being there for
The primary benefits your
coaching provided for me was clarification of my goals, improved
work habits and reaffirmation of my process. Things have shifted to a clear and positive
place since I began working with you. The process of focusing
on my intentions with an extremely supportive and interested
coach seems to have multiplied my success rate. It was a pleasure
working with you and I will recommend you highly. I want to stay
in touch and will certainly work with you again if I need more
coaching in the future. Thank you for being there.
"Jan brings a sensitivity
and determination that both challenges and inspires me."
