Let Go of Perfection and People-Pleasing.
From the Desk of Joanne Chen, Leadership & Life Coach:
Does This Sound Like You?
You sometimes find yourself putting your passion projects and/or self-care on the back burner, while juggling the demands of a full life.
Reliable, hard-working, and dedicated, you are the person whom others often turn to for help - you are a giver and a problem-solver.
But underneath your professional, “go getter” facade, you are just trying to “hold it together.”
You stress about getting things done right. And, after making all those sacrifices, you still wonder whether you are doing enough.
Perhaps you’ve gone to therapists, career counselors, seminars, retreats, blogs, or the self-help section of your local bookstore. But your life still hasn’t changed much.
Are you tired of:
Would you like to:
If so, I can help you!
Forget about making everyone else happy for a moment. You. Deserve. A break.
I invite you to step out of the rush and enter a private mindful retreat without leaving the comfort of your home, office, or car (a stationary one).
As your personal coach, I will guide you toward accessing and living from your center, your Higher Self – the unshakable You that’s connected to your inner wisdom, intuition, creativity, heart, and spirit.
I will also help you get your best self and creative visions out of the closet and into the world, and make space for refreshing, delicious self-care.
During each empowering, customized phone session, you and I will work together: to explore new possibilities, transform any inner resistance, and come up with bold action steps.
I will also help you create the support structure that you need to move steadily toward your goals.
You will experience that once- ever-so-elusive mental clarity, inner peace, and greater connection with your Best Self. It’s been a long time coming, but you’re worth it!
Being and expressing your authentic self can be a full-time living, not just a side job or a hobby. Have more JOY, Fulfillment, and FUN now, not just in the distant future!
If you are done with “business as usual” or a “ho-hum existence,” walking around in circles on a frustrating plateau, I'm the coach for you!
Are you ready to shed the shackles of busyness and step into your authentic power? If so, let's help you re-design your life and move ... forward!
To living boldly and authentically,
Joanne Chen, M.A., CPC
