What Even is a Life Coach? (With Christy Wright) – Build Your Board Series

Y’all. I’m having the BEST time this week talking about all the different kinds of coaching. Today’s conversation is with my friend, Christy Wright. Christy is a certified business coach and personal development expert, and today we’re talking all about life coaching. What does a life coach even do? And how might one be able to benefit us? We talk about life balance and expectations, feeling disconnected from our bodies, and defining goals and seasons (Christy giving us permission to set a goal to have more fun?! Um…DONE!). Christy is just brilliant and I think our conversation is so helpful as we think about whether or not the next right voice we need is a life coach.

For a full list of all the resources from our Build Your Board experts go to anniefdowns.com/buildyourboard.

Be sure to grab your copy of our Build Your Board Guidebook for this series. There are pages to take notes for every episode and questions to walk through and process, so that by the end of the series, you will have a completed resource AND the answer to the question–who is the NEXT voice I need to help me build the life that I want?
