Success Stories

Lose the Stress or Lose the Home?

Mary was under a tremendous amount of stress at her job.  Her co-workers constantly talked about her behind her back, and would attack both her personal and professional integrity.  She had no idea what she had done to create such a hostile work environment. In addition to her hostile co-workers, Mary was contending with having to do the work of two people.  Deadlines loomed around every corner, and she constantly stressed about meeting her deadlines even though she always managed to meet them.

 

The stress she was experiencing at work, was beginning to take a negative impact on her home life.  Every night she would go home and argue with her husband over the smallest little things.  One night her husband asked "Why are we fighting so much? We never used to." Mary thought about for a minute and replied that she was just under so much stress at work  that she was bringing it ALL home.  Her husband stated "If work is so bad, we should sell our home, pay off our bills, that way you can stay at home and not have to deal with it all" 

 

Mary had a choice to make:

 

1) Learn how to manage her stress

OR

2) Lose her home

 

It was at this time that Mary contacted me for coaching.  I helped her to learn to manage her stress through meditation and breathing techniques.  Together we developed a simple step by step plan that helped her to gain confidence, and stop worrying/stressing over what her co-workers were doing or saying. 

 

Her husband was asked to give her 15 to 30 minutes to "de-stress" when she got home, which did wonders for her.  After a few short months Mary and her husband were no longer fighting, and Mary did not go to work with knots tied in her stomach every morning.

4 Months No Pay and $20,000 in Debt

I just wanted to offer my praise for the life coaching services offered by Cindy Holbrook. My husband and I run our own small company. In early 2009, we faced the worst storm we had ever run into in a financial way.

 

Our business equipment had been giving us problems…on a monthly basis. It seems like we were making just enough to repair the equipment every month. Once the economy got really bad, our orders began decreasing. From the first week of January until the last week of April, we didn’t make any profits from our business, which is how we feed our family. As a matter of fact, we were almost $20,000 in debt with our business.

 

During this time, I requested Cindy’s coaching services. I was able to keep myself positive throughout this experience. And, things began looking up. We were able to sell off the bad equipment that kept breaking, and purchase new equipment under a new contract. This did cause us to have to move to another state, but we were above water for the first time in months.

 

Then…we hit rock bottom. Before we could climb completely out of the hole, we ended up homeless. Living out of a hotel. We never lost hope, though. Because we knew (thanks to Cindy) that being positive and staying focused on the life we wanted for ourselves, personally and for our business, that we’d get there.

 

I found an opportunity to put some of my skills to use in a second business. It’s actually my dream occupation, and best of all I am self-employed so I can continue helping my husband with his company and work around my kids’ schedules.

 

A month after finding this opportunity and “moving” into the hotel, everything fell into place. We got a second car (that we needed), and more than that, it was “thee” car that we wanted. We got a house-a large home in a nice community within a good school district.

 

Now, we are still on our way up. Sure, there are speed bumps…but we know how to react to those unexpected occurrences. We are so much better off for it. Our businesses are thriving and we are happy.

 

I highly recommend Cindy’s coaching if you are stuck in a rut or just don’t see a way out. If you truly want a change, it will come and she’ll show you how.

 

Best Wishes,
