I’m what you might call a “self-development junkie.”
It’s like I’m magnetically drawn toward books, programs, workshops, and courses that promise to fix my problems and make life easier.
And after talking with hundreds of you fellow Life Editors, I know I’m not alone. 🙂
But after digesting dozens of self-help programs, I started to notice a pattern. First, they grab my attention by acknowledging how awful my life is and how much pain and suffering I’m dealing with.
In fact, several successful business coaches told me to “focus on the pain” because that’s how you get paid customers.
That never really sat well with me.
As comforting as it is to hear someone say they understand the struggles we’re facing, it kind of stinks to be knocked down a few pegs before some guru promises to build you back up again.
Three years ago when I began designing my program, Life Editing for Beginners, I couldn’t bring myself to pitch it as a cure-all for my customers’ miserable lives.
Because here’s the truth: there’s nothing wrong with you.
You’re not broken.
We may go through rough times or feel like we’re spinning out of control, but that doesn’t mean we’re hopeless. I see brilliant women be outstanding leaders every single day despite whatever frustrations are lurking behind closed doors.
This is why I’m a Life Editor, not a life coach.
I learned in my years of book editing that even the roughest manuscript can be polished into a beautiful story with some patience and editing.
Life editing doesn’t promise you a snazzy new life that you can pull on like mask. It’s about making tiny changes (easy edits!) to become the best version of yourself.
You don’t need a “fresh start,” “clean slate,” or a “new you.”
What you need is an edited life.
You CAN have the life you’ve always dreamed about…and it doesn’t involve quitting your job, divorcing your spouse, moving across the country, winning the lottery, or throwing your current life into the trash like a crumpled up piece of junk mail.
Life Editing for Beginners is a group coaching program full of nurturing, gratitude, productivity, and strategic planning. You’ll make positive edits to become the best you…but you’ll still be YOU!
The next live session with weekly emails, weekly group calls, a private Facebook community, and loads of support starts on Monday, January 30.
