What Women are Saying
Joni is an amazing human and coach! I have enjoyed our sessions together and would hire/recommend her to others for coaching. Joni brings authenticity and positive energy and presence to each session. I felt that Joni genuinely cared about me as a person and was able to connect my personal vision for myself to my wellness journey. Thank you [Joni], for this experience.
You are a truly a "beam of light" for me every time we meet. Your enthusiasm for life is contagious! I felt connected with you instantly and it grows exponentially the more I get to know you. I feel you can be whatever I need you to be for me, whether it's pushing me or just letting me be okay with being me. I truly look forward to, and love our coaching sessions together.
First, and most importantly, you are amazing!
I’m just here to help you step into this remarkable time with power, purpose, and passion.
With so many life changes happening (new stressors, empty nesting, physical and emotional changes, and restless knowing there is so much more you have to offer, etc.), this is your time to uncover who you are and where you want to go next.
What Does A Coach Do?
Support. Encouragement. Ally. Accountability Partner. Empowerment.
Getting a coach offers endless potential for helping you take charge of your life; it's where the rubber meets the road, so to speak.
Through coaching with me, you will...
lead your own journey
be encouraged to discover what you want to achieve. In other words, I will never tell you what to do
be supported to use your internal strengths and external resources
set your own goals
get help with strategizing ways to overcome obstacles
have me as your advocate, supporter, and champion
I have walked in your shoes - I understand
Midlife is a time of great awakening, not of crisis.
As a woman, you’ve been everything to everybody and along the way lost touch with your own identity. Do you wonder if you’re on the right path? Do you feel like you’re going through the motions? Have you lost passion? Do you want to make a bigger contribution to the world but don’t know where to start?
I hear you...I've walked in your shoes
You deserve to focus on yourself and you have earned this!
As your coach, I will walk by your side and help you get down to the nitty-gritty of making lasting lifestyle changes.
Oh, and I will hold you accountable.
What is a Mid-Life Awakening?
If only someone would have told me. Or maybe I should have asked.
For many women, in our 40's, we yearn to make sure our efforts are significant and of value. There's a little voice inside that keeps whispering there is a bigger dream or purpose.
When we glide into our 50's & beyond, what becomes important is being valued as well as pondering how we will share our wisdom with others.
This restlessness and reflection were once incorrectly labeled as a mid-life crisis. In truth it is a time of beautiful expansion and awakening wanting to let go of rules and beliefs that no longer serve you so new possibilities, meaning, and fulfillment may be ushered in.
When we wrestle with the cravings to be authentic and have a meaningful purpose, it's not about the desire to reclaim our youth but rather the desire to discover our greatness.
Feeling as though you are a stranger to yourself is completely normal but not the truth. I admit to feeling alone, odd, and depressed wondering what was wrong with me. This journey of awakening is not a topic often talked about in a positive light so we keep to ourselves and struggle in silence. Finding other women who are also on this journey of challenging the status quo and waking up can make this transition exciting and powerful. I know. I have been through the restless journey and have come out the other side a changed (for the better) and enlightened woman.
Who Am I?
I'm 55 and I LOVE LIFE but this wasn't always the case. I used to feel:
Stuck in a life I didn't purposefully create
Tired, stressed, angry, and without purpose or passion
I had lost my mojo
That I needed to accept life as it was because I was too old to change anything
In my early 40's, I started getting restless knowing that I had so much more I could do/be/offer versus what I was currently doing, but I had no idea how to move toward it.
At 49 I nearly died so I work hard not to take a minute for granted.
Eventually, I got here; to a life, I could never have imagined.
I reinvented my own life into a life far beyond anything I dreamed of and I can help you do the same.
My Promise To You
As we work hand in hand and side by side, I will:
Walk every step of the journey by your side
Never tell you what to do
Listen and be present
Be transparent and honest
Respect your decisions
Offer to hold you accountable as you make lasting lifestyle changes
Celebrate your success and encourage your progress
Motivate you and be positive
One More Piece
This coaching process is all about you! It starts with getting to know each other to ensure we fit. We then begin to focus on the areas you wish to address first and will do so at your own pace. As your coach, I will never tell you what to do and/or the pace in which to do it.
You set the pace. You create the goal. You drive the bus, so to speak.
What will I do, you ask? As you drive the bus, I will help you navigate the route to your ultimate destination. We will do all this together.
