When do you need a coach?

*If you are feeling overwhelmed, a coach can help you pinpoint your priorities, set goals, and prompt you to take action.

*If you are not sure you are on the right career track, a coach asks specific questions and helps you sort out the challenges and the options.

*If you are seeking a relationship or want to improve the one you are in, a coach can pin point patterns, suggest changes, and give you strategies to help you success.

*If you are having difficulties with raising children and juggling your life, a coach will show you how to balance and de-stress.

*Coaches help you discover your passions and hidden talents. They can help turn on the light bulb for you. Maybe you are a great gardener, mechanic, organizer or cook. There are careers that involve all of these skills.

*If you have a dream, a coach can help you realize it by helping you focus, write it down, get the skills you need, push you to action, offer objective support, and help you believe in your own abilities.

*Coaches help you step outside yourself and give you a roadmap for your future. Where do you want to be in one year, five years, ten years?  A coach will accelerate your success and personal growth, increase your happiness quotient, and give you the boost  you need to move to the next level.

A coach is NOT a therapist, so if you are feeling depressed, suicidal, or have psychological issues, please consult a trained psychologist first. A life coach can then assist you in getting your personal life and work life on track.

A private session with Cynthia Brian, either by phone or in person, will guide you to discover your own gifts and talents and provide you with concrete tools to prepare you and your family for your new business.  If you are writing a book, promoting a product or service, preparing for a speech, or just need encouragement, Cynthia Brian is the coach with the answers. Improve your communication skills, self-esteem and confidence. Find balance, joy, and happiness. Learn to be more organized and eliminate the clutter. Discover and celebrate YOU!
