Many people have some aspects of their lives they feel need attention—be it their career, relationships, finances or personal passions. Jean talks with Kimberly Fulcher, founder, president and CEO of Compass Life and Business Designs, about her personal journey of becoming a life coach and how you can benefit from many of the lessons life coaches teach.
Kimberly is a successful businesswoman, wife and mother of four who sold her online software business for nearly $40 million during the dot-com boom. While her life may have looked picture prefect on the outside, Kimberly says she was miserable inside. "I was running on a treadmill, going through the motions, doing everything I thought I was supposed to be doing and yet completely disconnected from what was important to me and what I really wanted in my life," she says.
With the goals of focusing on her family and a finding a passion in life at the top of her list, Kimberly says sought out the help of a life coach. She soon began transforming her life and started her own life-coaching company, Compass Life and Business Designs. "My purpose, very clearly, specific to my "life compass," is to really help wake women up to what they are capable of," she says. "[We find out] what their strengths are and then provide them with the tools that they can use to not only to have a happier life but to really work toward and focus on the kind of contribution they want to make," she says.
