Meet Coach Cheryl

Hi, I’m Coach Cheryl and It’s a pleasure to meet you!

I am a Master Board Certified Coach and I work with coaches to help them create freedom in their lives by building successful, sustainable businesses. I am PCC Credentialed through the ICF and BCC Credentialed through the Center for Credentialing and Education.

A little about my journey...

Towards the end of my 25+ years in the corporate world, I found myself working 60 – 70 hours a week, raising 3 kids who I barely saw, and not participating in life.

I never had time for anything. My health was tanking and my personal life was a mess. I knew I couldn’t do it for much longer and I craved freedom so much I would cry in the mornings, knowing I had to look forward to the same kind of pressure and stress I had the day before!

I wanted freedom to spend time with my kids, freedom to choose when and how long I worked, freedom to choose how I spent my free time, and freedom to live life on my terms.

I took the leap to become a recovery and relationship coach and go into business for myself and to be totally transparent. It was rough. I didn’t know what I was doing half the time, and I struggled for almost 3 years.

But, I was fortunate as well. Most coaches never make it past getting their certification. They don’t have business knowledge. They continue to struggle to leave their full time JOB, to have the freedom of running their own business, to spend time with their families, and to have control over their time and life. And although I wasn’t where I needed to be, I was blessed to have been able to create some freedom in my life with my business background and my coaching skills. 

The biggest key was finally hiring my own coach. If there is one thing I would do differently back then, it would be to hire a coach right from the get go, hands down.  Because once I did, it was like night and day in my business and in my personal life.

Later, when I was asked to take a position of Training Director at the school where I received my certification, World Coach Institute, I was thrilled to be able to give back.

But as more and more students went through the programs, I saw a gap that needed to be filled. It It broke my heart when coaches would come to me 2-3 years after their training, discouraged, still in the same place, with no idea how to move forward and make the transition from their day job. I knew I could help.

That’s when it hit me that my real passion was helping people like you. Today, what really lights me up is being able to show coaches, through my experience, how to overcome these obstacles, enhance their coaching skills, and create the business they dream about so they can leave their JOB and create a life of freedom.
