The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
I left my high paying corporate job in 2009 to become a coach. For few years before making the shift, I had been having this constant inquiry within myself- what do I enjoy doing with my life?
I like working with people, I find it fulfilling to make myself available to listen to my friends and co-workers, I have been very motivated to help grow the people in my team, I truly enjoyed writing inspiring articles for women to realize their potential in family and work life. So when I finally listened to the calling of my heart, Life coaching was an obvious choice. It was not easy - It took me quite a long time to find out and decide (read How I decided on Career Change).
