What the heck is "One Degree Coaching?!?"

Great question. I was hoping you'd ask!

Do you ever feel overwhelmed, like you want to make BIG changes but don't know where to start - or HOW to do it? Do you struggle with the seemingly HUGE GAP between where you are now and where you would LOVE to be? Do you ever feel like you're not doing enough - or like you can't do EVERYTHING, so you just end up feeling stuck and frustrated? Blech. You’re not alone, and I seriously get it.

Does the “mean girl” in your head tell you things like:
”You’re not doing enough.”
”You’re not enough.”
”You’ll never achieve your goals, so why bother.”
”Other people can have __________ but you can’t.”

Again, you’re not alone. My mean girl had WAY too much say in my life before I fired her!!!

Of course, she still comes to visit every once in a while, but she’s not welcome to stay. She’s been outed as a big fat liar and I’ve permanently rented out her room to a voice that’s supportive, empowering - and just….kind.

And to be honest, the voice in our heads is pretty freakin’ powerful. It’s responsible for just about everything we’re experiencing in our lives - so it’s something I really prioritize in my work with clients.

So, you may be wondering - what exactly does “One Degree Transformation” mean?!?

Let’s start with this metaphor: Do you know how much change it takes for a rocket ship to pivot from not being in orbit to actually being in orbit? It’s actually as little as one degree. That’s it. And like a rocket ship, we can “go into orbit” in our lives by making the smallest of adjustments. If you were to simply make small, doable “one degree power pivots” every day, you’d be blown away by how much better your life (inside and out) would become!

How does it actually work?

We work together by getting ultra-real about where you are NOW, and ultra-excited about where you would ideally like to be, say one year from now. Then, working together, we create powerful daily one degree pivots that WILL lead you to your goal. Let’s say, for example, that we work together for one year. Imagine that you make 360 powerful (yet truly doable for YOU) daily pivots over the next year. There are 365 days in a year, obviously, but this gives you the ability to have five bad days. :)

So let’s say you make those 360 small, sustainable changes. Sustainable because they’re personalized through our intensive (yet fun!) work together. You would then, not unlike my previous “One Degree” clients, come full circle (360 degrees!) over the next year. You’d still be you, but the absolutely upleveled, thriving version of you! Your life would be radically different, and you would be experiencing new levels of success, joy, goal-attainment, and inner peace.

This may sound far-fetched, but what if I’m actually right about this stuff? What if this is the opportunity that you’ve been waiting for? What COULD your life look life one year from now if we worked together as a team to create stunning results? What if?? And if you want to sample what’s possible during our work, apply here for a free strategy call.

These are the areas I specialize in, applying my “One Degree” method:

* Life coaching
* Business coaching for heart-centered women (and a few awesome men!)
* Relationship coaching

Oh, and spoiler alert - these three categories often intertwine. We are complex beings, and although we may start out working on your business for example, other aspects of your life are vitally relevant and important too! For example, I had a client who came to me for help in the relationship department, and once we uncovered his blocks and he found his “person,” we moved on to creating a new business for him so he could leave his day job. And yes, there’s nothing more satisfying than helping someone find love after years of frustration! But his new career was pretty fun too. ;)

I know your dreams may still seem out of reach, but stick with me. I happen to know a bit about your potential, even if you’re not so sure right now.

The “One Degree” daily power pivots are POWERFULLY EFFECTIVE tools like none other. Think you’ve tried everything? I’m here to tell you that, respectfully, you haven’t. I’ve spent decades developing these tools, mostly because I’ve had to use them on myself!

I’ve used these One Degree power pivots to overcome the following in my life:
- obesity and food addiction
- depression, anxiety, panic attacks
- poverty and poverty consciousness
- struggling in my business
- unhealthy relationships and emotional abuse
- feeling like I’d never meet “my person”
- “victim” mentality and feeling powerless
- low self esteem
- crippling perfectionism and lack of motivation
- frustration over not feeling like I’m in total control of my life

And of course, I tell you all of this because I want you to know that I’m in it with you. I get it. I’m not sitting here, coaching from a manual. I’m coaching from a space of knowing firsthand what it takes to overcome inner and outer obstacles, so that we can truly have the life we desire! Because truly, we ALL deserve that. YOU deserve that.

Heard enough? Want to schedule a free chat and see if we’re a fit?
Cool —>
here’s a form you can fill out <— and I’ll be in touch.


Want to know more? Also cool! Keep reading . . .

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that you're already doing a lot right - and that you're probably not acknowledging that enough. If you're anything like me (and most other humans), you’re a bit of a perfectionist with yourself and sometimes forget to acknowledge everything you’re doing RIGHT. And despite all the good in your life, you still feel frustrated about the areas you can’t seem to master. I know that frustration so well. It can really taint an otherwise happy life.

But WHAT IF you began to implement that sparkly One Degree magic on a daily basis? And what if you had someone in your corner - not only a cheerleader, but also a guide, who could work in-depth with you to create highly personalized, doable steps to follow daily? Steps that were perfect for YOU. Steps that . . . WORKED. That honored EXACTLY where you are RIGHT NOW, as well as where you really want to be. Steps that may push you a smidge out of your comfort zone - but only in ways that you feel really good about, deep down in your gut.

And WHAT IF this meant that your whole life could shift? That these One Degree changes could create powerful changes in EVERY area of your life? Your relationships, health, business, and self-talk can all be powerfully transformed through One Degree power pivots. Of that, I am certain.

Wondering if we're a fit?
Some final thoughts, sweet soul, and I hope they don't sound harsh.
They come from a place of love, & from not wanting to waste your time . . . 

I'm probably not the coach for you if...

- You are unwilling to take responsibility for your life.
- You're not willing to tell me the truth/get real with me.
- You won't take small daily steps to create positive change.
- You aren't willing to look at your mindset and deep beliefs.
- You want overnight results (that you know deep down you can't maintain).
- You aren't driven to have a better life. You're fine in your comfort zone. 
- You aren’t open to feedback. You tend to get defensive (vs. pensive), and aren’t open to changing that.

I could be the coach for you if...

- You're willing to address your mindset (with my help, working together in a way that feels comfortable to you).

- You're willing to take small actions every day to improve your life. 

- You're open to feedback, and willing to get 100% real with me. (This is a safe, judgment-free zone.)

- You’re open to using "alternative" methods (mirror work, deep belief restructuring, visualization, journaling, customized affirmations, etc.) to expedite your results.

- You're tired of living a mediocre life and are truly motivated to have a phenomenal, upgraded life.

- You're open to positive change. You’re willing to get out of your own way and ALLOW your life to get better. 

- You're open to "co-creating" with your higher power to create maximum results with minimum effort - yes, I know this may sound woo-woo, BUT magical possibilities await when we work with our higher power effectively!
