Hello everyone out there in blog world! Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Jennifer Jakobsen and I am a Professional Life Coach. If you aren’t sure what a life coach does I will get to that in a minute. I will also tell you how coaching has changed my life not only as a coach but as a coachee (the person being coached). I used to practice psychotherapy in my past life (before marriage and kids). After having 3 kids, I decided I needed a change. I know that coaching is the career for me because I love helping people figure out their lives and coaching is a really positive/future focused way of doing it. I help people who are feeling stuck, overwhelmed and stressed out find a sense of balance and peacefulness. Coaches do not dig into your past and try and figure out why you are the way you are like a therapist would do. Coaches actually assume that you are healthy and whole and want to help you be a better you. Who doesn’t need that? I have worked with both a personal coach and a business coach myself and both have helped me move forward in my life. My personal coach helps me with my personal issues and my business coach helps me with my business. These two types of coaching tie into each other sometimes. For example, if I am feeling a lack of confidence in my self my business is likely going to suffer and vice versa. Anyway, you get the idea.
One of the biggest issues that I have as a coach in the world of business is that not a lot of people know what a coach is or why they need one. This is one of the reasons I am starting this blog. I want to educate people on this amazing resource called life coaching. I hope you will keep reading my posts because I can tell you over and over that EVERYONE needs a coach but you need to discover this for yourself. My posts will help you understand what coaching is and how seriously NEED this in your life. As your coach you and I will work as a team so you can Discover Your Best Self!!”
