#003: From Business Owner to Life Coach
Paula Acuña is a coach serving others in Costa Rica. Her services come from the idea that we can be really productive, but we first have to focus on what we really want. On today’s episode with Kristie, she discusses some of her coaching philosophy, as well as her journey to becoming a coach. Consider/Ask: Radical Mindset Musings● Many times we are trying to please everyone but ourselves. We go into automatic pilot and follow imposed ideas without considering our own dreams and what we want to accomplish.● When Paula lost her father, she hid in her work. She was pregnant, running a business, and studying; she didn’t have time to be sad.● Paula’s rock bottom happened in the midst of the debt of her company, when her son comforted her while she was crying. That’s when the search, and transformation, began.● Though she didn’t know it at the time, Paula was struggling with depression. Medication worked, and she was eventually able to save the business.● Medication helps you cope with a situation, but at some point you have to deal with the cause of what’s going on in your head and your soul.● She never experienced suicidal thoughts, but Paula struggled with anxiety. Some of the symptoms were not wanting to go to work, and also she was often in a bad mood with her husband. She also experienced binge eating.● As she was trying to come off medicine, that’s when she had her first encounter with spirituality and holistic healing. Paula started meditating, going to yoga, and using breathing exercises to manage anxiety and stress.● When she was ready to leave the family business, people took notice of the successful sale of her business, and she started doing business coaching for people that asked. As she noticed trends in business coaching, she decided to get certified as a life coach.● We need to detach from some energies, and instead get to know ourselves better, get to know our priorities, understand the possibilities, and then move forward consistently and fluidly. Revolutionary Leader’s Mantra: Sometimes in business you can try to handle too many things, and you forget yourself for the sake of your business. The business is always impacted by the person. As entrepreneurs, we have energy that goes into the business from the top down. If we’re not feeling okay as a person, the business will also suffer. You have to work on yourself first. You are not what you do. You are who you are. What you do is just a part of you. Subscribe: Please visit Kristie’s website for more resources and contact information.
