About two weeks ago, the Marketing Team asked if I would write an article introducing Coaching Season and myself to the world. The request was to write about my motivation and, most importantly, why I care so deeply about helping others achieve the success they desire in their lives.
At first, my initial reaction was “piece of cake”! I thought I would have the article completed by the evening. However, the day went by, and then, a week had passed before long; to my surprise, I was still struggling to put my thoughts on paper. Each day my mind was anxious, as I put pressure on myself to find the right words that would allow you to get to know Coaching Season and understand my passion and motivation.
I felt this pressure because I know Coaching Season’s immense value and effectiveness and want others to experience this life-changing model. So, I paused, gave myself grace, and waited for the right time—today!
First, I am deeply honored to be at a point with Coaching Season where I get to answer these helpful questions for you and provide my authentic, meaningful responses.
In life, sometimes things are great, and things can be challenging at other times. The key, I have found, is to equip yourself with the tools, perspective, knowledge, and support to overcome the more difficult times.
My goal with Coaching Season is to provide as many folks as possible with the tools so that they may thrive as the best version of themselves.
I have dedicated the last 20+ years of my life to learning about human psychology, neuroscience, and mindfulness to have better emotional control and enhance my life’s potential. Before helping others cultivate a life well-lived, I first had to learn the skills and techniques required, diligently apply them in my own life, and then teach my family and thousands of others from a place of integrity.
For example, during my professional career at companies such as Kaiser Permanente, FedEx Office, and InCharge Institute of America, audience members attending my summits and seminars would encourage me to open a company focused on motivating, coaching, and teaching others techniques to better themselves and maximize their potential in life. Through this work, I realized many folks need a more supportive approach which led to the birth of Coaching Season.
Just as a strong coach leads their team with integrity,
Coaching Season is a coach for you to upgrade your life.

My Coaching Journey Began as a Client
Once I started to earn enough money to find a life coach, I researched my coaching options and was quite disappointed with the results.
I found companies offered:
- Cookie-cutter programs that failed to address my specific needs.
- High-cost and hidden pricing that took forever to find publicized.
- Additional costs for sessions with head coaches.
- Lack of flexibility to discuss areas vital to me during any given session.
- Being upsold with various “upgrades.”
It was clear to me that people deserve better! That’s when I set out to simplify the ambiguous and expensive coaching world by creating Coaching Season.
At Coaching Season, you will receive:
- Customized solutions created individually for you.
- Transparent and affordable pricing.
- 1:1 live video coaching conversations that cover areas most important to you.
- 24/7 support with our communication tool.

Why I Care So Deeply
Millions of us are genetically and environmentally predisposed to having more challenges in life. Some examples are those who have experienced situations of trauma or abuse from growing up in turmoil, growing up in poverty, being a person of color, identifying as part of a minority group, living with a disability, growing up with shame from society, and struggling to live your truth.
It is a human need and right to be seen, heard, and valued for who we are. We thrive when someone connects with us to help support our life journey, including our mental health. There are some fantastic organizations doing work in these areas. You will find many of them listed on our website CoachingSeason.com. However, the great need for personalized support outweighs the capacity of our current systems, which inspired the creation of Coaching Season.
Now more than ever, we feel the ups and downs of uncertainty in the world. You might be feeling anger, hopelessness, fatigue, and many other challenging emotions.
Our mental health impacts the trajectory of many areas of our life, including:
- Our overall health and well being
- How we feel about ourselves
- How we perceive and interact with the world around us
- Our hopes and fears
- The ability to manifest our desires and true potential
The good news is that we can make practical changes that allow all the above areas to shift for the positive. Our brain is the tool we are gifted to tackle all the challenges we encounter in life, whether it’s COVID, managing stress, losing a job, or lacking confidence, among other life stressors.
Our thoughts are the framework and lens through which we see and interact with the world around us. If our brains are not healthy and resilient, it will be more difficult to find fulfillment and manifest our dreams to live a more vibrant life. Don’t let that happen to you!

A Client Success Story
The success of our clients continues to be where we truly see the impact of our work in the world. For example, one story that comes to mind is from a client who contacted us to improve her assertiveness in meetings and wanted to develop skills to increase her confidence in her demanding career.
Through working with this client, she not only achieved her initial goal to build her confidence, but she also assessed her core values and gained clarity for the next chapter in her life.
Ultimately, she decided that she would apply for her dream job, and it brings great joy to share that she is now thriving in her new role and enjoying a generous compensation package.
The woman she has become today empowers all of those around her and profoundly impacts how she parents her young daughter. The level of vitality she feels and the confidence with which she presents herself in all aspects of her life are priceless.
As you can see from this client alone, at Coaching Season, we discuss and provide tools for upgrading both your career and your life. These are the stories we are witnessing daily, and we could not be prouder of the positive impact Coaching Season has had in her world.
My Best Advice
As human beings, our brains have mastered the skill of holding onto every emotion we have and then labeling that emotion as who “we are.” These labels create many limiting beliefs within us. In doing so, we create a great deal of heaviness in our bodies that physically makes us sick and negatively impacts our lives. I want people to know that we have more control over our nervous system and emotions than we may think. By learning to pause and breathe, we can calm down our nervous system. Just the simple act of pausing and breathing will help with your trajectory in life and can dramatically improve how you react in most situations throughout your day. This effective tool will positively impact your mental clarity and overall physical wellness and vitality.
Not only is this knowledge backed by many scientific studies, but I have personally implemented these techniques to elevate my own life and improve my mental health. While we are all on a unique journey, I have seen and continue to feel massive improvements in my well-being, resilience, and success.
Please let me be clear in saying breathwork is not the only tool; We need to employ multiple modalities in addressing our mental health, including doctors, therapists, and medications. I have personally held on to my multifaceted support system for over 15 years.
It is a scientific fact that you can change the lens through which you view the world with regular breathing and calming your nervous system. Learning to breathe in a way that begins from your abdomen and fills your lungs towards your shoulders deeply will increase vital activities in your brain and nervous system and even boost your immune system.
My Wellness Routine
Life has been both an incredible and challenging journey for me. I have become an entrepreneur 4x over throughout my career, traveled the world helping others develop to their fullest potential, and received invaluable guidance to support my personal development. I have been affluent at times and destitute at other times in my journey. Being a minority, I faced societal challenges and had to work incredibly hard to overcome life’s difficulties.
Throughout my journey, I have learned that having the right balance of emotional control, healthy thoughts, and life-affirming beliefs is essential to overcome the various obstacles in life and has allowed me to achieve my desired full potential.
People I’ve encountered often ask me what steps I have taken to successfully overcome obstacles, break the generational cycle of poverty, and improve my mental health.
- I remind myself that we are all a work in progress and ever-evolving. I take action daily by incorporating simple things into my routine, such as learning to pause and reflect rather than overreacting or becoming aggressive in my response.
- I stopped watching the news due to the adverse psychological effects and negative impacts on our brains which we can’t undo, and I found healthier outlets to learn what is happening in the world.
- I have surrounded myself with supportive people who value my skills and gifts.
- I practice my unique approach to spirituality that involves prayer, faith, and crystals.
- I am an avid believer in the benefits of meditation and breathwork and practice daily.
- I see a therapist, and I also have a life coach.
- Lastly, but most importantly, I maintain a beginner’s mind and am a lifelong learner
