When they come to me…
They’re cruising along in their comfort zone. Everything’s fine but they want… more. It’s time to shake it up but they don’t know how they’re going to make it happen.
They’re juggling the demands of a busy family life, career, and business. And they spend so much time putting others’ needs first, they’re lucky if there’s ever time or space to consider their own.
Their pace of life exhausts them. Their days are a sprint from beginning to end. They’re rushing from the drop-off line to work, from work to the drop-off line, playing taxi driver to their kids and their busy social schedules, and trying to be an active part of their families while still having some time for their own pursuits.
But they’re not complaining. They’ve got good relationships with their partners (even if they prioritize sleep over sex these days) they’ve got steady jobs with pretty good benefits, and they’re reasonably healthy (despite only getting about 5 hours sleep, their closet Diet Coke habit, and their inability to get through the afternoon slump without destroying a venti latte).
Their lives might look good on paper but they can’t help but think there must be more
If you’ve been grinning and bearing it and living a life like this then something’s got to give.
Perhaps you’re constantly focused on the destination but you’ve got precious little patience for the journey.
Or maybe you’re so damn busy all the time that you get freaked out and feel like your life will always feel completely out of balance.
If you need permission to take control of your life, you’ve come to the right place
As a personal performance coach, I help people redefine balance in a super busy world. I hate to break it to you, but society’s version of balance is bullshit. Here’s why. You won’t ever truly feel in balance until you define what balance mean for you. But the secret to living your best life isn’t about finding balance – it’s about finding your purpose.
With over 15 years experience as a performance coach, an MA in Organizational Psychology, as well as being a mom to two ridiculously energetic kids, I know a thing or two about redefining my balance and living with intention.
For the longest time I was totally overwhelmed at work, overwhelmed at home, and felt like my aspirations were as unattainable as the Holy Grail. I didn’t feel like I was achieving success in any part of my life: not in my career, not at home with my family, and not where my personal goals were concerned.
We realized we hadn’t really been living our lives; our lives had been living us.
I learned a lot about myself that year: about digging deep and making tough decisions; about finding the strength to leap even when I was paralyzed with fear; and the courage to stand by my choices no matter what.
Family Sport Life started as a way for us to chronicle our personal journeys, my husband’s new love of triathlon, as well as to share tips and inspiration for boosting everyday personal performance in the every day.
John still checks in now from time to time with triathlon updates, but for the most part Family Sport Life has become the digital home for my personal performance coaching practice. It’s my mission to help you move beyond day-to-day drudgery and to kick life into high gear.
Challenge the status quo, find your joy, and make life count
When you work with me I’ll be asking you the tough questions that encourage you to dump most of your to-do list, and focus in on the things that you value the most. There’s no need to throw your entire life up in the air – I’m all about evolution (not revolution). You’ll achieve this by honing your productivity, organization, and mindset without losing sight of self-care.
The net result?
You’ll love deeper, play bigger, and live better. And you’ll level up where it matters most – your everyday life as a partner and parent, as an athlete, and as an employee or entrepreneur.
