Osayi: Hi Lorraine, welcome to THE PERSON, thank you for interviewing with us
Lorraine: It’s my pleasure thank you for being patient.
Osayi: I’m really excited to talk to you today, it’s always great to talk to people who enjoy what they do, With that being said lets get on to what it is to be a life coach, how did you get into it, and what exactly do you do?
Lorraine: alright Let’s see what did I do to get here, it was a really long process, it didn’t have to be so long I guess it just took a long time for me to realize that I had the passionate desiere to help people in this particular way. I had always been helping people around a specific topic but in the last six years before I turned over to life coaching full time I was a fitness coach and I went to people’s homes and coached them around their body and I realized that what they were needing from me was more than just a new way to do a sit up or something of that nature, they were looking for a connection to why doing all of this was really meaningful for me and to help them uncover the purpose the passion the drive. The payoff to them personally for doing all these things. I was successful in helping them doing all those things so I thought I better get some training and make sure that I am doing this correctly so I went to training school. It just sort of fell into place and I realized that this is where I need to be. I need to make life coaching be the primary and use fitness, passion, career, as the added benefit. Does that make sense?
Osayi: Yes that makes makes sense. So what exactly do you do as a coach?
Lorraine: I’m in the business of more and less. People want more of something and less of other things, and Helping people figure out what they really want more of and less of, and not just what it is but why it’s important to have more of that and less of this is a process of collaborating and figuring it out. and all of it bases on personal values. It is the backbone that helps you make those tough choices and put a magnifying glass on everything so that it is completely clear when you are presented with two options, which one is really the right one for you. So when I coach people it is a process of helping them make sense of all the internal signals that they have already going on inside them that may be creating alot of confusion and chaos so that they can relax and move forward and get more of what they want.
