Safe and Sound | The Best Compliment I Ever Received

The best compliment I ever received from a client was because of a typo.

I had just gotten on a video call with my client “Anne” when she smiled and said:

“I keep misspelling your name!”

This was odd because I have a very simple name that’s pronounced exactly as it’s written.

“What do you mean?” I asked.

She explained that whenever she’s writing an email to me, she somehow always types my name with an “F” instead of a “G,” spelling the word “safe.”

Safe. Sage. Safe. Sage.

“I felt silly misspelling your name all the time,” Anne continued. “But then I saw it as a sign from the universe that I’M SAFE with you, Sage!” 

“Our calls are my safe space—my Safe Sage Space.”

Honestly, I still get a little teary eyed when I think about it.

This is why I love being a life and business coach. It’s been the honor of my life to provide a safe, sacred space for my clients to fully show up as themselves.

Over the past 13 years, I’ve been a safe space for my clients to share their truths:

  • Admitting she hates her high-stress job and making a plan to quit.
  • Leaving an abusive husband to protect herself and her kids.
  • Doing the hard work to turn around a devastating financial situation.
  • Acknowledging for the first time that she was r*ped.

Of course, I have plenty of “light and fluffy” coaching calls about productivity and planning, but the clients that stay in my heart forever are the ones that allow me to make them feel safe.

Safe. Sage. Safe. Sage.
