A lot of people I know in the space of coaching and wellness have a similar story: “I was doing this corporate thing and got burnt out and now I teach Yoga and holistic nutrition.”
Phew! Thank god they got out, right?
What would’ve happened if they stayed? My guess: a similar series of events as the person who replaced them when they left.
Poor person, right? Hopefully it’s just a quick stopover so they can
You see, there’s nothing wrong with those “I got out” stories. In fact, many people I work with realized they needed to develop a corporate exit strategy in order for them to pursue the most meaningful and high-impact path in their lives. I wouldn’t be worth much as a coach if I couldn’t support and cheer on a process like that.
I just try to remember that someone has to work these jobs after everyone leaves them to open a vineyard. Or, gulp, become a coach.
Am I a hypocrite? More on this in a bit…
