As I was reflecting on 2018, I had a very powerful realization and had to check my memory. I stopped what I was doing and dove into my notes from 2014 when my business was sparkly-brand new and I was working with my first clients.
I found the Vision statement I wrote for my business. At the time, I was working my way through my ICF accredited coaching program. The very first sentence of my page-long aspirational document reads:
I envision a thriving coaching business with a steady stream of referrals because the work my clients and I do has a meaningful positive impact on their lives.
And, there is something extra significant for me about this fact: more than 60 percent of the clients I coached in 2018 alone came from client referrals.
Sixty percent. Pinch me.
I am grateful and honored to have contributed to my clients moving forward. It inspires me every day to coach people through their personal and professional transformations. And, I am equally grateful and honored that they were motivated to share my name with their people.
It felt lofty at the time (truth be known: it still does!), and I feel so grateful to realize that this is now a fact of my business, just four and a half years later.
It is meaningful to me that having a specific vision for referrals for my business from the beginning. I believe this clarity helped align me with my bigger purpose: to help as many people as possible to transform their lives and the lives of those around them.
As I think about the power of a clear vision, I want to invite you to consider: what do you really want for yourself? What would you LOVE to be true about your life in five or ten years?
If you could use support to get clear on the answer, I’d love to invite you to attend to one my favorite offerings: The Visioning Experience.
This an amazingly powerful way to bring clarity to yourdesires and focus on your dreams.
And when you bring clarity to what you want, you begin the process of aligning your life to fulfill that vision. I see it happen again and again.
My Visioning Experience has 2 parts:
- A creative 3-hour Vision Board workshop in Austin
- A private Vision Integration coaching session with me to get clear on your vision.
This is my third year doing this visioning work for my clients and taking hundreds of women through this process. The feedback I get over and over is:
This process is FUN.
This process is DEEP.
This process is TRANSFORMATIONAL.
