Reaching Your Full Potential

At the age of 49, I was desperate for a new career. I had been working in the mental-health field for over 30 years. You could say I was a little burned out. I live in the mountains and wanted a home-based business so I could kiss my commute goodbye. I also wanted a career where I could use my hard-won mental-health skills.
I also wanted a career where I could use my hard-won mental-health skills. Previous jobs had me working with clients who were not voluntarily seeking help. This time, I wanted to help people who truly desired change and were motivated to take action towards their own success. I hoped and prayed I wasn’t asking for too much. Lo and behold, I actually found what I was looking for—life coaching! It has met all my requirements and more.
