The sure thing isn’t always so definitive. Many of us think that we’re safe in our corporate jobs because we get our weekly salary and the benefits are nice. But then something like COVID comes around and we realize that our security blanket isn’t real.

“What people don’t often understand is that part of the transformation is making the decision to go all in.” -Emily Williams

Both Kristen Kunk and Nicole Hamzeloo found themselves caught up in layoffs earlier this year due to the global pandemic. Instead of wallowing in doubt and fear however, they decided to look at this as an opportunity to pursue their passions. Both of them joined our I Heart Coaching program and they’re sharing how their lives have changed in unexpected ways.

For both of these women, they knew that if they were going to go all in on their business, then they needed to find the support that would help them reach their goals. They came into the program needing help with systems and how to do business online and realized that the mindset work was truly the most important. 

They’ve both seen some huge shifts in their lives and even bigger successes. I’m excited for you to listen to their stories, and if coaching is in your heart, then check out the I Heart Coaching program for yourself. This is one investment that you will not regret. 

Listen as Kristen and Nicole share exactly why they decided to invest in themselves with I Heart Coaching and have continued the work in our Mastermind!
