People ask me how I got into coaching and the answer might not be what you expect…
It was on the back of a bar napkin.
That’s right, a bar napkin.
I was sitting at the bar of my favorite restaurant mindlessly doodling on the edges of a bar napkin when I wrote…
“I help people grow”
“I what!?” I shockingly thought to myself.
At the time, it was completely unrelated to what I was doing as a corporate business leader.
But it was as if the Universe spoke up and said, “Ahem, Julie, it’s time for a new direction”
The seed had been planted.
From the outside I had a dream job – senior level role, cushy compensation, a seat at the exec table, but I started to feel an inner restlessness that I couldn’t shake.
Underneath the mask of professional perfection, I was also a mother to two young children. Lucy, age 5 and Brendan, age 2 ½. I wanted to be corporate executive and super mom.
But all I felt was pressure.
I finally listened to my intuition and left that corporate job. A year later, the Universe interceded again when a colleague encouraged me to take a coaching class.
The rest is history.
