Summer Dreaming

Hot town, summer in the city…

In the midst of a hot Georgia summer, I’ve been inspired.

My resurrection fern

President Robb Garrett has encouraged all the Board members to find their own ACO success support team and it’s like water to a Resurrection Fern to receive a charge to increase my world of support. I feel I am a lone coach in the wilderness, and like the fern can wither in a drought, I’ve been a little shriveled lately. I haven’t given my whole focus to my coaching business and it shows. I coach alone and in my home, and I have a hobby that keeps me further insulated. I chose to do this for a year, but it’s resurrection time!

The rain has come in the form of a mission, and I’m saturated with ideas to increase my contact with the world. Over time, I’ll change hobbies to something that includes more people. Immediately, I will look for new digs for my coaching, an office that has some life to it and where my skills are an ADDed bonus.

I’ll also look closer at a master’s program to increase my knowledge around neurology. This is a big leap of faith for me, but I’ll be a year older anyway.

My proposed, pro-bono ACO Board success support team will include but not be limited to:

  • a business coach
  • a web coach
  • a vision coach
  • an accountant
  • an organizer
  • a virtual assistant
  • web newsletter editor

These support professionals will keep me saturated and juicy for success on the ACO Board and on the Circle Newsletter and make me better for everything else in my life, if I ascribe to the ‘trickle down’ theory. When I have found my people, I’ll write about them and the experience of asking. I’m prepared to be turned down, too, as I’ve already had two people say they can’t take on this task. But it’s OK – I will offer the opportunity to someone whose plate is not so full.

Robb writes today about your goals to keep the conference energy alive in your daily life. I learned at the conference that I’m a well-trained and educated coach. I learned that I have something to give that people want to receive.

This year I’ll give more to keep the conference energy alive in my coaching world.
