Client Details Posted on September 14, 2010
What do you want to achieve in the next year by hiring a coach?
First, I'm not sure who will get this message, but here I am again, stepping out on faith.
I am a life-coach. Yes, that's right. I am a life-coach. I have three clients. None of which have I negotiated any money from. I am doing it, because it's my life's purpose, and of course what coach doesn't need the testimonials? Convincing people of there greatness: it's what I feel I was born to do, and if you ask any of my clients, or the people that I have worked with, been friends with, or just met on the streets, I am successful at it. People leave my presence with clarity, when it comes to living and loving.
Again, I don't know who reads this, so I feel free to tell you bits of my story, before I get to the point of this letter. This letter, is an exercise that I have done only once before, when I realized that there was a name for what I wanted to do; See, I got really sick, and after mis-diagnosis after mystery the doctors say I have fibromyalgia. Chronic pain that to most doctors remain a mystery, but I knew it was brought on by 40 hours a week, trapped in a cubicle, doing something that I didn't love or care about. I was only doing it for the money--and when illness took my job, and there was no money--it left me with nothing...I sent about 30 letters to random coaches, in my area, hoping someone could lead me in the right direction, mentor me, or give me to someone who could. Just like this letter, I write it with only the intention to continue this path of manifestation. I wrote in the letter that even if the letter ended up in the trash, or under important papers of someone's breifcase, I knew that even if I didn't hear anything, my faith could never be in vain--and the letter would end up exactly in the hands of the person that needed to see it.
Out of 30, one coach wrote me back. We had a phone meeting, she let me to three books, websites, and a method of "just do it", if coaching was what I want to do, and it's what I have been doing ever since! And never have I been happier.
At this time, I still have no income. None. I am living off of happiness and the benefits that I have reaped by being there time and time again for everyone. I am humbling myself, as someone with only a high school diploma, I went from making 17,000 a yr as a security officer, to making almost 50,000 a year--and now, I'm here. Financially, with $1.11 cents in my bank account, and going back to being a security officer so that I can save up the money it takes to market my business and gain certification. But I have never been more secure, oddly enough.
The purpose of this letter is simply this: to manifest the vision that it unfolding right before my very eyes. Like the first set of letters that I sent out. I don't know who will read this letter, or if it will end up in someone's circular file. Perhaps, you know someone who would be willing to mentor me, or offer me a part time position, apprenticeship, maybe even 20 mins of coaching per month in exchange for doing some web research or clerical work--maybe you will pass this letter on to every coach that you know. Maybe you, yourself can help in some way. Maybe you have gotten emails from clients who need coaching, but can only afford a amount so low that most "experienced" coaches will not take them. I am willing to coach for testimonials, referrals or whatever the client can afford...
When I said I wanted a website, I called a guy just to price--so that I can add a specific goal to my vision--once we talked he decided to do the work pro-bono, I would only need to pay for my domain name and hosting--I didn't have money for that during the conversation, but two hours later, my best friend called (with no knowledge of my need for money), and offered to rent the 46" HDTV, that I barely watch--I had the money for the website before the day's end and the site should be up and running any day now! Exemplifying my faith has been the only work I have done for the last 6 months, and it has always paid off. And I am sure this letter will pay off as well, somehow.
All of this may sound a bit crazy-but faith is about the absurd:-)
With Faith, Love and Fulfillment,
Coach Dee, Philadelphia
