Your Chosen Coach

CJ, Your Chosen Coach is a Mindset & Transition Coach for Entrepreneurs. She has a BA in Psychology and Certification in Solution-Focused Therapy and ultimately became a Manager after entering the workforce. In that role, one facet that gave her great fulfillment was coaching her team on their personal growth and professional development to move up within the organization. After over a decade of guiding each person to confidently apply their newly discovered or developed skills to take on more challenging and fulfilling roles in their careers – while living balanced personal lives – something clicked for her and she returned to school to start her own transition into becoming a Certified Life Coach. Deciding on a niche was easy because knew that she wanted to continue helping others in Transition realize their full potential.

It was during her own transition that CJ started asking herself questions that she felt were important to address as the entered the world of Entrepreneurship and this led to her paying more attention to and studying the importance of truly understanding Mindset. Now she highlights the benefit of finding balance between personal development and professional growth by understanding how much our experiences, thoughts, mental blocks and limiting beliefs can impact our actions and ultimately how we show up in our Businesses. She helps Entrepreneurs – Aspiring, New and even Seasoned – get Clarity in their Mindset and devise strategic Solutions to get real Results in their Business.

Understanding the WHY behind your Goals

As Business owners, we know that we are to set goals but sometimes the idea of planning for a business can be overwhelming and in turn the wrong goals are set. Understanding the WHY is not only about having a reason behind each goal, but ensuring that the right goals are set for the right reasons. This is a reminder to take a step back and look inward to find the answer to what may seem like a very difficult question. Once you can get CLEAR on your reason, you get clear on your goal-setting and can create a realistic action plan based on your short- and long-term goals.
