To all on my EmpowerChangeNow Newsletter including clients and those that have received my writings over the past many years, I offer all the best for the New Year. As we approach 2016, it is a time for reflection on our accomplishments from the past as well as goals for the future. For me, I feel it is an appropriate marker to move from my current semi-retirement state to full retirement.
My company, Life Transformations, LLC was conceptualized from a need I saw to assist those in corporate America achieve balance based on what I had learned over many years as an IT/telecom project manager, a team leader and eventually a coach/mentor over other more junior project managers. I was always available to my teams and associates to help them move past their difficulties so that we could all meet our joint project goals. Out of this environment, I formed my semi-retirement business to help others overcome what I called their negative pattern to achieve their highest state possible. To this end, I studied since to teach, one must first learn, experience and become wise enough to work with others. There is always self-work to do prior to helping someone else. So I had a road of self-improvement myself. I studied many spiritual traditions, took classes on energy healing, became a Reiki Master, and eventually was ordained as an interfaith minister. Over the 12 years of my life coaching work I helped over 350 individuals work through career, relationship, financial and other personal issues, goals and challenges. I can honestly say that helping others has been a real blessing for me… to be of service, and to watch each person move through their difficulties to their own desired end.
Thanks to those of you who were my clients over the years for putting your faith in me and for allowing me to be of service. It was a joy to aid your positive growth.
And to those who just received my writings, thanks for allowing me into your life those my musings.
In future, I may write a bit here and there, so please let me know via return email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to be part of a very select group of people to receive future blog postings which I will most likely merge with my other blog – Joanne’s Starteacher Blog. Feel free to check it out.
What will I do now? Like many retired people, I will move more to my hobbies of ballroom dancing, continue my spiritual studies, my world travels, jewelry making, and developing personal relationships. In addition, I’m working on getting as fit as I can be at this age!
This is a new stage in my life. I greatly look forward to it. Many blessings to you all! Happy new year..
