Why am I putting together a women’s coaching directory? 

I have been going through a period of change over the past 2 years. I have been dealing with some physical challenges that have prevented me from continuing in my “day job” as a physiotherapist.  I had a fair bit of time on my hands, started reading, listening and going to seminars on personal development and spirituality.   After lots of ups and downs, including some pretty dark days, I now believe my illness has been a nudge from the universe to look at ways to share my gifts with the world. 

I really believe I am here to do what I can to help women find what (and who) they need to be their best selves.  I was really overwhelmed when I started looking at all the coaches out there…trying to figure out who they were, what they did, what they offered, etc.  It was a full-time job just trying to navigate.  I want to put all my ‘research’ to good use…develop a tool for women to be able to filter through all the coaches out there and have a better idea of some promising ones to start with.

I am hoping the directory will evolve into a place with many kinds of support for women in transition.  I know I’m going to need a few dollars to help pay the bills eventually, but that is not the primary reason for this adventure.  I really believe it’s an incredibly important work.  I want the site to be completely accessible to anyone with a computer…I don’t want dollars to be a barrier to anyone looking for help.  I am planning to eventually have a page with recommended websites, tools, other resources; hope I may be able to generate a bit of income from affiliates I believe in.  Who knows?  I’m not sure how it will play out, but I know that I will be able to make it happen, and grow it into something that will make a positive difference for lots and lots of women.

So that’s my why:-)  

Hope it’s a day with many reasons to smile.
