What's Within U: coaching for change, intuitive readings, and values-based blueprinting
I appreciate you being here!! Chances are you're here because you've found yourself stuck in a rut of status quo, or infected by the "square peg squished in the round hole" syndrome and you're ready for a change. I get it.
And you might even be wondering, "Who is this woman? What gives her the credibility to help me get unstuck?" I get that too. I had a mentor once say to me, "Pam, people don't give a sh*t about the letters behind your name. People give a sh*t about the fires you have walked through that are going to help them walk through their own."
I'm going to be honest, I thought it was those letters that gave me credibility. While I earned those letters, my mentor was right. Those letters don't represent who I am and they're only a small part of my credibility. It's the many fires of status quo that I've walked through. The fires that ultimately lead me to my WHY (my values, my authenticity, the things that make me, me) and that support me in supporting you.
Fires like... ... being that square peg who was tightly squishing herself into lots of round holes, ... settling in some stifling and even unhealthy relationships, ... finding and staying in some careers that weren't me, ...showing up small and feeling not good enough, ...needing others' approvaland caring what they thought about me, ...people pleasing at the cost of my own well-being, ..to name but a few!
In short, I was trying desperately to fit into places that weren't me because I was afraid of standing out.
That was then...and this is now. Now I know without a shadow a doubt I wasn't meant to fit in, but I was meant to stand out and help others do the same. And as a result of my journey through those fires and my quest to stop being a part of the status quo I've come to realize one important thing....
Every single one of us has the ability to get unstuck from the rut of status quo and it all begins with our WHY!
The bottom line; we've got amazing lives and/or businesses to create, ones that fit who we are!
If you've gotten to this point and you're saying to yourself, "She's speaking my language, but I want to know more about how she can help me."
I understand and I'd like to invite you to reach out so we can set up some time to chat OR....
Feel free to sign up for my newsletter where I share some unsticking tools you can use, as well as some personal stories. (I'm all about keeping it real!) Follow me on Pinterest. Check out why and what gets me so jazzed about what I do. Or you're welcome to just keep reading. Either way, I look forward to connecting with you and if you're ready, helping you to discover your WHY so that you can get unstuck from those ruts!
A few fun factoids ...
I'm a loving partner in an amazing, loving relationship.
I seem to have become a collector of oracle cards, with a few decks of tarot cards thrown in for good measure.
I love music and have sung in the choir and even had a small stint in a garage band. I still sing, but only in the car and shower.
I'm an animal lover. Although, I must admit, I'm not huge fan of reptiles unless it's a lizard.
I'm from the state of great BBQ, Dorothy,Toto, and sunflowers.
I'm a KC Chiefs' fan.
I have a heart and I'm not afraid to share or use it.
I'm a cryer, yep...I've been known to cry during Super Bowl commercials.
I'm a recovering co-dependent realizing that the only person's well-being we are ever really responsible for is our own. (This was a tough fire to walk through!)
I love to listen to others and support them on their journey to find the best solutions for them.
I love presenting to large groups, but am an introvert by nature.
I've quite a few work-related experiences while trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up; a teacher in a classroom setting, a business owner of an internet production company, an independent contractor, co-founder of a non-profit AIDS prevention organization, and an editor. While I've enjoyed all my career choices, none have fit me nearly as well as an intuitive, certified coach, and teacher.
I have a B.A. in Creative Writing which I say gives me license to make up words.
I also have a Masters in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. (Try saying that 10 times fast, I dare ya.)
I'm a trained coach, Coaching Out of the Box licensed trainer, and a licensed Corporate Coach U Coaching Clinic Facilitator. I am also a faculty member of an accredited coach training school, teaching some of the finest people in the world about the various coaching skills and how to incorporate them into their coaching practices.
I am an ICF PCC certified coach.
I'm also the former host of the radio show The Attraction Factor which can be found on Empower Radio, iHeart Radio and iTunes. To listen to a recorded version of the show, click here.
I am someone who likes to have fun and in my early 50s can still do the splits and cartwheels. Who says you ever have to get old?
Most importantly, I'm someone who cares and is here to help you get unstuck!
