There are so many reasons why I’m passionate about coaching, and I talk about various aspects of this in my blog and other posts. Today I want to talk about the Freedoms. This is HUGE!
For years I have worked for someone else. Whether it be a small company or a government job, there has been so little freedom and autonomy. Also, with most jobs, I was totally limited in earnings as well. Here are some of the prominent aspects I am looking forward to saying goodbye to:
Income ceiling. I want to determine my income, set goals, crush goals, and have financial freedom
Dress code. Whether strict or flexible, I want to buy and wear what I want
Set vacation days and permission to take same. I have to submit vacation requests, await approval based on my collegues vacations, staffing levels etc.; I can only take a certain number of vacation days in a year. I want the freedom to work from anywhere, and vacation as often as I like, when I like.
Permission to go to the dentist. It’s an issue to even make personal appointments! I have to submit paperwork, take it out of my bank of sick time. I want total flexibility and freedom.
Set hours. Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to get up early, get ready, get the kids ready, be at work on time, take my breaks at a certain time, go home not a minute early. I want to work my hours based on my life, my family, my energy level.
Packing lunches. Never mind having to make the kids lunches, I have to make my own lunches as well! When I’m working from home all I have to do is go into the kitchen and throw something together, hot, fresh, and based on what appeals in the moment.
Valued. At some jobs I’ve felt valued and received recognition in varying amounts. Never much though. With coaching, I am an extremely valued member of a team and receive so much recognition it’s amazing!
Mentoring. Personal Development is a key component of being a successful coach. Not only does it help my mental drive and strategy with coaching, it feeds all aspects of my life.
I inch closer to total freedom every day. I never thought this would be possible but now I’m making it happen, faster than expected! I've already replaced 1/3 of my full time income and since the sky’s the limit, I’m ready to soar!
