Get your life together.
Assess where you’re at, decide where you want to be and let us help you navigate every obstacle in between.
Hey, it’s Shana & Vanessa! We’re so glad you’re here.
We know you’ve said it before and you’ll say it again. “I need to get my life together.” No matter how serious or silly you were being, we know we can help you. You might feel overwhelmed. There’s a lot on your plate, you’re helping a lot of other people and you just can’t seem to find the motivation or energy to achieve your goals. Maybe you’ve lost sight of what those are, maybe you’ve lost hope that you can find time to focus on you.
That’s where we come in.
We understand that life has taken over and you’re probably feeling that just keeping up is as it gets. We understand that you probably don’t know where to begin. We even understand that you may have tried, and failed, at achieving your goals. Been there, done that– did not get the t-shirt. We help clients carve out time and space to think, to figure out where they stand and to dream again. Then we help them devise a plan that they can stick to to achieve their “Level 10 Life.” It’s our mission to restore your hope, energy, motivation and to help you achieve the special dreams that are hiding inside of you!
Our signature process
At our first session, we will assess your circumstances. situation. We will provide the safe, non-judgmental, dare-we-say-even-fun atmosphere for you get it all out on the table. This is an important step because we need to know the current situation and foundation we’re working with in order to create the future.
2. Cast Vision
Now that the “hard part” is over, we will talk to you about your goals and your vision for the future. As Mary Oliver asks, “What is it you plan to do with your one wild & precious life?” When we know that, we can begin to understand what it will take to achieve your dreams.
3. Create a plan
This is where we nerd out. We will help you establish a realistic plan that will put you on a path to achieving the future you laid out. We will help you create a step-by-step plan to achieve your goals that includes overcoming obstacles, milestones and mini-goals in the process.
4. Coaching & Accountability
This is where the magic happens. You don’t have to do this alone! We will coach you as you begin to integrate the positive habits and disciplines we teach along with dropping the ones that aren’t serving you. We will hold you accountable to the goals you set for yourself while encouraging you and helping you overcome obstacles that inevitably come up.
What is Life Coaching?
Life Coaching is like having a personal trainer for your life. We combine a proven, step-by-step process with teaching, encouragement, math, budgets, habit training, systems, best practices and a wee bit o’ tough love. We typically meet weekly for 30 minute sessions. We do not sell any products and we are not counselors. There are no long-term contracts, you can stop coaching at any time.
What are your prices?
Life Coaching is $200 per month. Read more here.
How long do I need a life coach?
Some people choose to work with a coach as they work to achieve a specific goal or project. Others see it as a lifetime investment. At Ideal Balance, you can end the coaching relationship at any time as our contract is month-to-month.
What can you expect during a coaching session?
First and foremost, you can expect uninterrupted time and space to focus on you. There are no tangents. There is no back and forth. This is just 100%, uninterrupted focus-on-you time.
Next, expect some pretty mind-blowing moments where you really begin to understand yourself, your thoughts and your actions in a brand new way.
After our initial session, we will create a plan that we will help you carry out to achieve your goals. Each session will involve a check in on the action steps from the last session, goal status, obstacles and successes and homework for the next session.
I’m successful. Shouldn’t I be able to reach my goals on my own?
While many successful people have achieved great things in the past without a life coach, life is increasingly complex, busy and there are many things pulling for your attention. Just like Olympic athletes, you will go further faster with a coach who can help you distill your thoughts and desires, provide objective feedback and perspective along with personalized encouragement and support.
